What is Standard glass?
The Standard glass in our mirrors is slightly convex which is the same as it is in your own car door mirrors. We recommend standard glass because it gives you the same view that you are used to when driving or reversing.
Should I have Flat or Standard Mirrors?
Worldwide Milenco sell more Standard than flat Mirrors.
In the UK there is an historical preference for buying Flat Mirrors as against Standard. We believe this date’s back to the time when other manufacturers standard mirror’s gave a severely distorted the view, making distance judgement difficult.
Milenco Standard mirror’s have typically the same radius as 95% of car door mirror’s, they will give you the same field of view as you are used to.
Flat Mirror’s will give a smaller field of view, than your car mirrors.
Whichever Milenco Mirror you choose you will be getting the best quality and the best field of view possible, but if you ask us our opinion which is better, we would say Standard.
Milenco mirrors have won every test of Mirrors globally since the mid 90’s, every Milenco mirror that has won these tests, has been Standard.

My key will not turn in the lock or only turns on quarter of a turn.
Check you have the correct key.
The correct key will not turn more than a quarter of a turn.
Check the key is fully inserted into the lock. Turn clockwise as far as you can then applying pressure to the key rotate the key anti-clockwise. Repeat to ensure the key is fully inserted.
The first quarter of a turn, simply aligns the wafers in the lock. The second quarter of a turn opens the lock.
The correct key is fully inserted and still will not turn.
Check that the Ace Lock has free movement through the wheel of the caravan. The same as when it was fitted.
If the Ace lock body does not have free movement, the lock will not release until this free movement is restored.
If your caravan has moved this applies a load to the lock, it is designed not to release to maximise security.
Move the caravan back so that there is, free movement with the Yellow lock body.
This may also be achieved with the corner steadies.
As a guide you should be able to rotate the Ace, when fitted a minimum of 10 mm in either direction, subject to the aperture size in the wheel.
Please remember that once your key has turned about half a turn you still need to physically pull the Wheel Clamp off the wheel.

- Insert the key and release the lock by rotating the key 180 degrees clockwise.
- Insert left leg through the left side of the front cover. (Note: Lower edge of left hand locking plate must insert over right hand locking plate.)

I’m having problems unlocking my Wraith
To unlock the Wraith, insert the key and turn 150 degrees (a little under half a turn) clockwise. You can then pull the Wraith firmly from the wheel.
When trying to unlock your Wraith, if you find that the key will only turn 90 degrees or less (quarter turn) clockwise, then there are a few simple steps to solve the problem.
The first 90 degrees of the key turn is the alignment of the lock mechanism. The remainder of the turn rotates the inner lock barrel and unlocks the product.
DO NOT FORCE THE KEY.
The first thing to check is that you definitely have the correct key, and that it is not mixed up with an alternative product. The Wraith key is a steel shaft, with a black plastic handle. One side will say ‘Milenco’, and the other will have your unique key code, made up of a letter followed by 4 numbers. Please note that some other Milenco products also have the same key design.
If you are confident that you have the correct key, the next thing to ensure is that the Wraith is not trapped in position. You should be able to rotate the product up and down slightly. If you cannot do this, it is likely that the caravan/motorhome has moved and applied a load to the lock. It is then designed not to release in order to maximise security. Return the caravan/motorhome to the position it was in when the Wraith was fitted. This may mean rolling forwards/backwards slightly, or raising/lowering steadies. When the Wraith can be rotated, try again turning the key 150 degrees clockwise, and pulling firmly from the wheel.
If the key will still only turn 90 degrees, then the key may not be fully inserted. There should be 8mm of the key shaft showing, between the face of the lock and the handle of the key. If there’s more than this, then the key is not engaging with all of the internal lock wafers. Turn the key clockwise as far as possible, then whilst gently pushing forwards, slowly turn the key anti-clockwise. Repeat this process a few times, with the aim being to line the key up with all the lock wafers, so that the key pushes a little further into the lock.
With the key fully inserted, you should be able to turn 150 degrees clockwise, and pull the Wraith firmly from the wheel. The trick with this product is to be gentle, and to keep the key fully inserted whilst turning to lock the product. Only remove the key when you have turned it fully anti-clockwise. This ensures that the lock is lined-up and ready to be easily unlocked with the key.
If you continue to have issues with the Wraith, please contact our technical department, by emailing email@example.com or telephoning 01908 220102. Please send necessary photographs/videos to aid the support process.
