How to measure your cylinder lock

Euro cylinders are used in the vast majority of double glazed doors, french doors and patio doors they are used to secure the door's multi point locking system.

Cylinder door locks are not difficult to replace if you have basic DIY skills, you only need two measurements.

Your cylinder locks should be as flush as possible with the handles, maximum projection is 5mm - if you current lock sticks out by more than 5mm either side of the hanldes then choose a smaller size.

Euro locks are the UK's most common type of door lock in use today, currently there are no required insurance standards, which in our opinion is crazy as the old cylinders or the new cheap versions are not anti snap, and do not have the TS007 ratings. In essence your front door can be opened in less than 20 seconds with a pair of pliers and a screwdriver.

Euro cylinder locks are now measured by the TS007 1 star, 2 star or 3 star ratings, the old British Standard kite mark rating is no longer a real measure of true security in modern euro lock design in our opinion - but all of the anti snap euro locks we sell have the BS kite mark (it's such a basic level compared to the TS007 rating)

If you want to hit 3 star security then you can buy the ABS TS007 3 star cylinders or the 1 star Yale Superior cylinders with the Yale Platinum door handles. Yale have just released the AS Platinum 3 star euro cylinder, however they can't be keyed alike (same key works on several locks to make life simpler and your key ring much lighter) in our opinion they offer no key security (anyone can copy your keys without your knowledge) and they are 40% more expensive than the ABS 3 Star cylinders that have already proven themselves in the real world - and the ABS Euro locks have excellent key security via a special key code card supplied with the lock.

Currently the only TS007 3 star rated anti snap euro locks in the UK are made by Avocet ABS, Yale and Mul-T-Lock. We stock the full range of the ABS locks, Yale Platinum euro locks and we can supply the Mul-T-Lock 3 star euro cylinders on request as they are much more suited to commercial systems (and much more expensive than the ABS euro locks and Yale AS Platinum). The Avocet ABS euro locks are ideal for domestic users wanting a great lock at a good price with maximum key security.

All the TS007 1 star and 3 star anti snap euro locks are also available as thumb turn locks on the inside of the door - they can also be keyed alike so all of your new locks work on the same key.

PLEASE NOTE! The new ABS Avocet Anti Snap Euro Cylinders use the internal measurement first... If in doubt just call us before ordering and we will make sure you get the right lock!

I bought a 30/30 (60mm) euro cylinder lock which fits great however the screw is to short. It came with a 50mm screw and I need a 70mm screw. I could not see any option for this on your site to select sizes - can you assist?
Confused by growing choice of 3-star cylinders 6 Years ago
As we approach 2016, there are now loads of 3-star anti-snap cylinders available (e.g. ABS, Mul-T-Lock XP, Kaba pExtra Guard, Squire Tri Star). What are the differences? Please could you do a general review about the pros and cons of these cylinders?

Impact of size in choosing between Yale Platinum vs ABS 3-star euro lock cylinder 5 Years ago
I found your 'New Yale AS Platinum euro lock vs ABS 3 star euro lock' news very helpful, but it missed a key point. Yale Platinum would be the better choice in 30/30 size. The ABS cylinder doesn't have a British Standard kitemark in the 30/30 size, because
there's too high a chance that someone else's lock could have the same key as yours!

Im after some 60mm cylinders. 35/25 or 20:10:30 but cant seem to find any anywhere. The customer wants the cylinder flush both sides and and thing different to this combination will effect that.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than
ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the
title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword
should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your
keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at.

hi, i have just removed an old union cylinder lock from french windows, measuring to centre of fixing hole is 36.5 from both ends and full length 73mm. Can you match with a high security cylinder (this took all of 3 mins to drill out and one minute to
pick tumblers and rotate the cam). so much for my security.

Hi. My existing cylinder measures 50mm inside and 45mm outside. I got a new 3* one but it is wrong. When ordering a cylinder. Do you put 50/45 or 45/50. I got the former?.

Thank you for the excellent service, over and above a standard service. I expected to collect the keys and pay in person at the shop, the next day I got a call to say they were passing and would drop the keys in. Excellent service and a good price. Thank
