Millenco Mantis 2 multipoint door locks are second generation Millenco locks. They feature unique measurements of 95mm and 65mm centres (PZ) and now form part of the Yale group of companies.
Mantis 2 multipoint locks are available 3 different variants: 3 hooks and 2 deadbolts, 3 hooks and 2 deadbolts with 2 rollers and passive lock version. Historically, these locks have been available with a 20mm faceplate, but they are now only available with a 16mm faceplate.
Identifying a Millenco Mantis 2 multipoint door lock is straightforward as it is the only lock on the market with a double spindle, 95mm and 65mm centres. This is the best way to ensure that you have the correct lock as early versions of these locks had no brand stamped on the faceplate.
Millenco Mantis 2 gearboxes are only available in one configuration and backset. The configuration is double spindle for lift lever or double spindle nightlatch operation. The only backset available is 35mm.
Mantis 2 gearboxes measure 205mm high by 55mm wide. They feature a central hook bolt that is 45mm high and a latch which measures 23mm high and projects 11mm.
Even though the faceplate can be unscrewed, a Mantis 2 gearbox cannot be swapped with a replacement as it is connected to the linkage rail that runs behind the faceplate.
Millenco hooks are comprised of a hook that moves upwards and a deadbolt, immediately below it. Hook cases measure 140mm by 48mm and the deadbolts throw 20mm into their keeps.
Rollers are used for compression, to pull the door against the frame, to help prevent dust or water ingress. They do little for security, but they also have the added benefit of helping to prevent the door from becoming warped as it is supported across its full height. This is dependent on the rollers being engaged into their keeps.
Rollers are normally adjustable by 1mm to help achieve optimum weather sealing.
