    Hi all

    I am fitting a Yale Conexis smart lock, and have removed the existing cylinider ok…. But in my door the cylinder sits in a sliding carrier which protrudes through the door at the front, so the Conexis handle assembly isn’t able to sit flush on the door…. See picture.

    I cannot see how to remove this extra piece which is preventing me fitting the Conexis front plate and handle.

    What is its purpose, and is it removable?

    Take out the screw on the side of the door that is under the hole. Then try and slide it out.

    The Cylinder is out ..... it's the empty carrier that is causing the problem. It slides up and down and appears to straddle in the internal mechanism. It's either two parts pressed together, one from either side or i'm going to need to pull the entire mechanism out of the door to remove it i guess... not something I want to do if i can help it!

    Someone at work says these just pull out with a pair of pliers or mole grips. Its actually two parts pushed together from either side of the door. Does this make sense?

    Ok just to close this one out.... the part in question is apparently a security device to stop Euro locks being snapped. It didn't pull apart and even managed to confound a Locksmith who resorted to cutting it out with power tool. Its out now and the Conexis is in and working!
