Caution: Applications of this product may fall within the requirements of FMVSS 206 (ECE R11) and SAE J839 safety standards. These safety related requirements are dependent on door application, e.g. front and rear hinged doors, sliding doors, or hinged upward swinging doors. The entire door hardware system must be included in the design/analysis process: latch, handle, lock mechanism, cables/rods/linkages, fasteners, hinges, etc. This ensures compatibility of all components within the hardware system. If FMVSS 206 (ECE R11) is a requirement, then all of the components within the door system must comply with strength, inertia and locking requirements as specified with the Standard. Note that this product complies with FMVSS 206 (ECE R11) when tested in accordance with SAE J839 and that this product meets FMVSS 206 (ECE R11) locking requirements and may be used in FMVSS 206 (ECE R11) applications pending TriMark application approval.
