How do I change the handles from right to left?
If you don't have the print instructions for your lock, go to this web page:
On the grid, go across from L1000 to the "Manuals" column & click on PDF, which will download the file of the manual for your lock.
If you cannot open the file to view it, you need to install Adobe Reader first. You can get the download (free) from here:
Now you should have the manual for reference.
Someone else who was wanting to change the handle sent me this information:
"I've got a Simplex L1000 series combination that needs the Outside Lever Assembly-Right Hand and Outside Sleeve Assembly changed on it. I have the parts needed but I can't figure out how to remove the Outside Lever from the Front Lock Housing.
I had the original question. For others viewing and needing the answer it's as follows: After looking and removing the internal parts I still couldn't find the solution, so I ended up sending it to a locksmith to replace the parts. They told me later that ALL internal parts from the Front Lock Housing needed to be removed, then rotate outside lever 180 degrees. Using spanner wrench depress the front knob retainer, then outside lever should slide off. Remove Drive Assemply and Front knob retainer from rear of front lock housing. *The key was rotating the lever 180 degrees. Nowhere in the directions was this mentioned nor was it mentioned in the email reply I received from Simplex.. So for all you out there, Good Luck! And make sure to add this key step to your directions."
As you will find in the manual, you need a special spanner wrench for this operation.
The spanner wrench (SMPBC201278 Simplex:SpannerWrench $9.00) referred to can be purchased from this site:
