Whether it was based on any other companies frame I cannot say.

John Hinson wrote: But what is up with lever 1? It isn't a three-position or push-pull lever as far as I can make out, as the catch handle is raised. Surely we are looking at a wrong-side failure here as it shouldn't be possible to remove the gate keys without the lever being either fully reversed or fully normal (depending on how the locking is arranged)?
