Original discontinued version DGS MK1, Suits 28/92 with Cranked Faceplate, Replaces GU, not made by GU. Will fit old-style GU locks only, not compatible with new-style versions. 30mm fits a cranked faceplate lock to make a 28mm faceplate.
New-style GU gearboxes are available in a variety of different operations and are one of the biggest ranges of backsets on the market. They are available in 28mm, 35mm, 40mm, 45mm, and 55mm backsets with lift lever function, 35mm, and 45mm with split spindle function and 35mm only with the Europa Plus fast locking function.
New-style GU locks can be differentiated from their old-style equivalents by the shape at the top of the gearbox. Old-style locks have the top corner removed, whereas new versions feature a vertical groove to help with bolts for handles. The two gearboxes are not compatible, so a new-style gearbox will not fit on an old-style multipoint lock.
GU multipoint lock gearboxes feature a latch and deadbolt and measure 191mm high (excluding the fixing lugs) by the backset + 16mm wide. The latch is 32mm high, the deadbolt measures 35mm high and there is 54mm from the bottom of the latch to the top of the deadbolt.
GU gearboxes are fixed to their faceplates with 3 screws. The distance from the top to the middle screw is 108mm, while the middle screw to the bottom screw is 92mm.
Always allow 2mm when measuring your backset and the faceplate is still attached to the gearbox.
