Why can a 410 OAD not be used to operate a 297 / 296 Panic Latch or a 294 Panic Bolt?

Because the mechanism on the 200 series units operates in one direction only and the amount of travel is limited. Therefore the lever handle would not fully retract the bolts and latches and would also not operate downwards in a normal manner. Also, all accessories need to be listed on the Manufacturers Declaration of Conformity, and using any accessory not listed will negate the CE marking and may lead to prosecution.
