Are you aware of lock snapping?
Lock Snapping is a method where a burglar can gain access through your front or back door within 60 seconds, by using a very simple technique to smash the door handle and then break the cylinder in two. For some time now the official Police approved scheme Secured by Design and British Standards Institute have been working to improve door security especially against Lock Snapping. New standards have recently been introduced to overcome this problem by using Anti Snap Cylinders like UAP+ Zero Lift.
The quickest and most cost effective solution to this problem is to upgrade basic euro cylinder locks to security enhanced Anti Snap Cylinder locks, these have anti snap cuts on both sides of the cylinder. If unreasonable force is applied to one end of an Anti Snap Cylinder, it only breaks away to the anti snap line, but leaves the locking mechanism still inside the door (see diagram). The Secure By Design and British Kitemark approved UAP+ Zero Lift Cylinder is one of the most popular security cylinders available, offering good security at an affordable price.

How do I measure a door cylinder?
The size of cylinder you need is determined by the thickness of the door and handle combination, for this reason there are many sizes available and you will need to be careful that you measure the cylinder accurately (one size will not fit all). It is possible to measure a door cylinder in the door, but to be sure it's best to remove it first.
Your new door cylinder should protrude by no more than 5mm from the handle back plates. It is most sensible to go for exactly the same size as you are replacing (unless your old cylinder was protruding excessively).
Measurement A - Measure from one end of the cylinder to the middle of the central screw hole.
Measurement B - Measure from the other end to the middle of the central screw hole.
Now check your measurements
Measure the overall cylinder length from end to end. The length of the cylinder should equal the sum of measurements (A) and (B) when added together.
For example: If measurement (A) = 45mm and measurement (B) = 50mm the size required would be 45/50 cylinder (95mm in length). No further measurements are required
Please note: These cylinders feature anti-snap security on both sides therefore ordering a 45/50 cylinder is the same as ordering a 50/45 cylinder.
How do I fit a new door cylinder?
Open the door and unscrew the one fixing screw which is located on the lock faceplate (the strip of metal the full length of your door), in line with the bottom of the door cylinder. Put the key into one side whilst holding the other side firm. Turn the key and the cylinder should slide out, if it does not turn the key in the opposite direction and the cylinder should slide out. Take your new cylinder lock and insert the new key and turn it until the cam is inline with the body of the cylinder. Insert the new cylinder into position and replace the fixing screw. If the door cylinder is offset (i.e. 40/60, 30/50 etc) ensure the off set is protruding from the correct side. Check the operation of the lock before you close the door.
How do I fit a new door cylinder when I have lost my old keys?
It is not possible to change a cylinder with an offset cam when the keys have been lost. In these circumstances the cylinder will have to be drilled or snapped, this can be done but the assistance of a locksmith is highly recommended.
