How to Measure your Lock

To ensure the correct size of lock:

Measure from the centre of the cylinder screw fixing to the outer face of the handle, both on the internal and the external side of your door

The ABS lock has to be fitted with the side marked EXT to the external side of your door.

Locks come in 5mm increments and you always go up to the next size

How to Measue and fit a euro cylinder lockSo for example, if the internal measurement is 32mm and the external measurement is 43mm, you would order a 35mm internal / 45mm external sized door cylinder lock

We strongly recommend you remove the lock and measure the lock out of the door.

The ABS Secure MK3-G cylinder offers the highest level of security as a snap-secure solution for timber, aluminium, uPVC and composite doors. With 6 more addtional anti-pick devices and over ten more maximum security features in each cylinder than the previous models, the ABS MK3-G cylinder has achieved BSI Kite Mark accreditation, "Secured By Design" approval, Sold Secure Diamond Standard and the latest BS:TS007 3 Star certification.

Avocet ABS has now achieved the maximum TS007- 3 Star recognition - Sold Secure Diamond and Secured By Design standards, this makes Avocet ABS Lock one of the highest security cylinders available.

Avocet Abs Secure Lock features
The ABS Secure MK3-G cylinder features unique "Snap Secure" patented technology that ensures that if the door is attacked, the cylinder snaps in TWO places (not just one like all other anti-snap models).

The first at the sacrificial point just behind the door line makes a second attack extremely difficult. Should a second attack take place a second sacrificial point just before the multi point lock case incorporated with the unique and patented snap secure clutch system, totally blocks access to the internal mechanism of your door lock preventing entry.

This "Snap Attack" is THE most common method of entry due to the speed of entry (usually less than 30 seconds) and the lack of skill required.

The Avocet ABS Secure MK3 also incorporates bump resistant technology to prevent entry by the "Bump Key" method. The bumping protection includes telescopic pin technology, a magnetic bump resistant pin that works in the opposite direction to all the other pins and 6 additional second level trap pins, giving 15 pin protection against bumping
