The Euro Cylinder is one of the most common locks used today, you will find them in uPVC and Composite doors, they can also be used in wooden mortice locks that have been adapted to take the Euro cylinder. The main reason for using this lock is that it can easily be replaced without the need to change the full door mechanism. Another great use is on apartments and rental properties as you can easily change the cylinder when new tenants move in.
They can have their flaws as cheap locks and earlier models can be easily accessed by snapping the locks, which criminals soon found out (lock snapping is the most common way homes are broken into). The good news lock manufacturers soon got working to overcome this problem and there is now some very good locks on the market, Ultion are that confident in their lock that they will give you a £1,000 if your home is accessed by lock snapping.
You can easily check if your locks are of good quality by looking on the face of the lock, if it doesn’t have three diamonds the you should seriously be thinking of changing it as soon as possible. You can upgrade your door security by fitting high security handles which carry a two diamond rating, adding these to a one diamond cylinder will give you three diamond security.
