Security expert ASSA ABLOY has introduced the new Yale Y3 nightlatch, a like-for-like replacement for the ‘original’ Yale P77 nightlatch, offering modern styling and ease of installation.
Fully retrofittable, the Y3 can be fitted directly in place of a P77, with no need for additional chiselling. Designed to complement modern homes, the Y3 comes in a choice of contemporary metal finishes, including polished chrome, black and brass.
The Y3 features the same locking functions as the market-leading P77 nightlatch, which means the door can be left ‘on the latch’ and deadlocked internally, using the snib.
David Herbert, Group Product Manager for Yale, comments: “The P77 is the original Yale lock and we’ve sold millions since it was launched in the 1930s. The P77 can be found in thousands of UK homes but many consumers are now looking for more contemporary door security products that will secure and update the look of their front door.
“The Y3 ticks all of these boxes, with the added bonus that it can easily replace an existing nightlatch, so we are confident that it could be just as popular as its predecessor.”
The Y3 nightlatch is suitable for left and right handed, inward opening doors and can be used in conjunction with any British Standard 5-lever mortice lock.
Supplied in a visi pack for ease of display, the Y3 comes with a Yale 1109 cylinder and two keys.
Recommended retail price for the Y3 nightlatch is between £24.99 and £29.99
