1. Prepare and mortise bottom of door and side jamb to receive pivot set. Determine pivot
location using dimensions on reverse side. Be sure to properly locate and mark center
point of the jamb leaf spindle. Care must be taken to ensure that jamb leaf is completely
level. Place level against jamb leaf surfaces as shown in Figure 1. The bottom pivot set is
handed. Hand of pivot must match hand of door. To determine hand of door, see diagrams above.
2. Locate, drill, and tap 1/4-20 mounting holes for metal door or metal frame. Locate and drill
pilot holes for #14 wood screws for wood door or wood frame. Mount jamb leaf to side jamb
and door leaf in bottom of door with 1/4-20 x 3/4" FHMS or #14 FHWS screws provided.
3. At this point, the top pivot of the set should be installed. After top pivot installation, hang door.
Refer to instruction sheet packed with top pivot for details.
4. If height adjustment is necessary for proper door clearance, adjust bottom pivot as follows:
A. Remove top pivot pin and take door down.
B. Use 3/32" Allen wrench provided to loosen set screw in jamb leaf (see diagam above).
C. Adjust bearing spindle height with 5/8" Allen wrench. Range is plus 1/8", minus 1/16".
D. Re-install door.
