Decide on the location of the Extender and on the length of cable you will require.
Feed the cable through the cable inlet (A in Diagram 2). Attach the Extender to the
wall using the screws provided, Diagram 2, then follow one of the two installation
options below.
Option 1. Installing the Bell Push Extender for use with an existing Wired Bell
Push and Door Chime.
Disconnect the power supply to your existing Chime by isolating the mains supply
(if transformer-powered) or removing the batteries. Connect the Extender in
either of the 3 positions X,Y or Z as shown in Diagram 3, using terminals 0 and 2.
Option 2. Installing the Extender for use with a traditional wired Bell Push, when no
wired Chime exists (Diagram 4).
If you are using the Extender to allow you to have a traditional decorative bell push
on your door, connect the Extender to your traditional wired Bell Push using
terminals 0 and 1, See Diagram 4.
To complete your installation, fit the 6LR61(PP3) battery as shown in Diagram 5
and replace the Extender cover securely.
Please note : The Extender always requires a 6LR61(PP3) battery. Always check
that the wires are connected to the correct terminals before reconnecting the power
or replacing the Chime batteries.

Tune Selection
Your Extender can be set to up to make the Door Chime play a 2 note or an
additional note sequence (The number of additional note sequences available will
vary depending on the model of Libra Door Chime you are using with your Extender).
The Tune Selector in the Extender (B in Diagram 2) is factory set to position 1 making
the Door Chime play the standard 2 note sequence. If you would prefer the 4 note
additional sequence just move Tune Selector to position 2.
If you have another Libra Bell Push, for example at your back door, this can be set
up to make your door chime play a different note sequence to that of your Extender.
You can change the note sequences at any time by using the procedure above.
Please note: The note sequence choices described above are not available when the
Extender is being used with a Libra Mini Chime, Model D292

Friedland Libra products use a coding system to ensure that they work together and
that there is no interference to or from a neighbouring Friedland wirefree product.
The system code in all Libra products is set using a series of 8 switches (C in Diagram 2).
In order for your Chime to work with a new Libra Extender and other Libra products, you
will need to ensure that the system codes are adjusted to be the same by following this
1. Check switches 1 to 8 in your existing Libra products.
2. Remove the front cover from the Extender and look at the position of the switches
(C in Diagram 2).
3. If switches 1 to 8 are not in the same position change the switches in your new Extender
to match those in your existing products using a pen tip, as illustrated in Diagram 2.
Example: if you set switch 1 in your Door Chime to the ON position, then you must
set switch 1 in your Extender to the ON position.
In the unlikely event that your Door Chime rings without your Extender being
activated, other Friedland wirefree product, either your own or a neighbour's, is
using the same code as your own. You should change the system code in all your
products in the same way as described above.

Other Libra Products
All Friedland Libra products are compatible and will activate each other if the system
codes are set to be the same, as described above. For example, if you install an
additional Libra Bell Push for your back door, just ensure that you adjust the system
code to be the same as your Extender and your Door Chime.\
