What if the deadbolt doesn’t lock/unlock all the way after I installed Aegis?

Depending on the deadbolt’s tailpiece’s initial angle, it is sometimes possible you find that you cannot seem to turn Aegis a full 90°, and the bolt either doesn’t fully stick out when locked or fully retract when unlocked. In this case there are two things you can adjust:

– You can install the base plate at a tilted angle. The base plate allows for about 20° angle on either direction. If the bolt doesn’t fully stick out, install the base plate 20° towards the locking direction; if the bolt doesn’t fully retract, install the base plate 20° towards the unlocking direction.

– If the angle needed is expected to be greater than 20°, you can turn the tailpiece adapter the other way around.
