"Thank you very much for the detailed review. Although when I read the part about the "...hole was needed..." because of the in-swinging door I found that particular input to be an error on your part. Seco-Larm goes into great detail with their product manuals via pdf files. If you had read through the entirety of the manuals (which should always be done before buying any security product online, thats common sense and I'm sure you knew that) you would see that there is an optional "Z" bracket (with included "L" bracket) that can be purchased for an in-swinging door. No jerry rigging necessary."
Hello Joseph G.
I bought and used the Z-Bracket. That's how I was able to use this magnet on an in-swinging door. The Z-Bracket mounts to the door and holds the armature plate up to line up with the magnet mounted to the trim on top of the door frame. I needed to drill a hole in the casing of the magnet in order to hide the wires coming out of the trim. If I had used the only hole provided, that hole is on top of the magnet and not mounted to anything when the magnet is mounted on the inside top trim. That hole only works when the magnet is mounted under the door frame so that the magnet is hanging into the path of the door. That mounting position doesn't work for in-swinging doors which is why I bought the Z-Bracket.
I don't know if I'm making myself clear, but I had no choice but to drill a hole in the casing of the magnet in order to hide the wiring. I assure you that I read all the documentation I could find in detail as I was ordering a wide range of products to complete this project.
