Why have a High Security Euro Cylinder

Most uPVC and composite doors are fitted with a cylinder lock with revolving cam. Turning the key revolves the cam, which engages the doors locking mechanism. The design has inherent weaknesses but a high security cylinder, like Yale Superior, can protect against them. Three reasons to buy a high security euro profile cylinder:

  • Protect your property - high security cylinders are a physical and visual deterrent
  • Insurance compliance - failure to use an Insurance Approved cylinder could invalidate an insurance policy
  • Peace of mind - trusting a high security lock means you can rest easy at night

EXTRA KEYS - 3 keys are provided with single cylinders and 6 keys with keyed-alike pairs as standard. Additional keys, which are cut using genuine Yale blanks, can be ordered with the cylinder.

What size do you need?

To determine the size cylinder you must remove the existing cylinder.

Removing existing cylinder

  1. Open the door and put your key in the lock (or grab the thumbturn knob)
  2. Remove the screw which is beneath the latch.
  3. Turn the key/knob while apply pressure to the opposite end of the cylinder. As you do so the cam will line up with the rest of the lock and you will be able to slide the cylinder out towards yourself. The key usually needs to be turned approximately 25° clockwise or anti-clockwise.

You can now measure the original cylinder.
