A traditional electric strike release uses a solenoid which releases a hinged plate that swings out of the way to provide clearance for the door latch. The Private-Door Retracting Strike is designed with an internal motor that pushes (retracts) the door latch into the door. The door latch is retracted the same as if the handle was turned. Because the Private-Door Electric Strike retracts the door latch it maintains a stronger level of security then a traditional strike release. The wood door frame and its trim do not need to be cut for clearance. This feature provides a cleaner appearance. Unlike a traditional strike release, the Private-Door Retracting Strike also fits into a standard ANSI 4 7/8" metal door frame.
