Did you know (I didn't) that the barrel locks fitted to UPVC doors can be easily 'bumped' (snapped) and broken into without lockpicking skills. Barrel locks can be easily replaced by a locksnith or youself. It usually requires just undoing one screw. There are no doubt videos on youtube showing how. You need then to measure the lengths to and from the bolt (bit that sticks out) I think this is the best price, I think, from a reliable seller. If this gets posted to discussions, I'm going to shoot myself
(Fortunately it wasn't necessary)

Avocet ABS locks are state-of-the-art anti-bump and have a great key. You can get them for around £25 but get them (and spare keys) delivered to another address.
You would want at least 1 star on the cylinder, not just a kite mark. I can get bs anti pick/bump/drill cylinders for £4.80 plus vat but fairplay for plugging what may be your own ebay shop

I always have locks delivered to a different address to the one I intend to use it at just as a precaution.

Please can you post a link
As above, 3 star locks starting prices are cheaper than this depending on size.

Doesn't say anti bump

Are your windows anti bump, probably not
The cheapest anti bump at screwfix appears to be £19.95

Wouldn't want anything less than 3 stars and can get these cheaper than this. Good plug if this is your own store
jasee29/10/2019 07:55

A joke?


No I don't think an oppertunist will worry about whether your lock is anti bump and they will go for the soft option of popping a window

They wouldn't suit me as they are 35/35, the ones I've posted are variable divisions
You can pay almost anything for more secure cylinder locks, if you want to go for Avocet on Ebay, you're loooking at £23-£50 (about) (less pickable)

I have these on all my doors and have the 1 key home system where the locks on all my doors are designed to work with the same key. Good thing about these locks is that are they 3 star diamond rated. Also inorder to get another key cut you need a verification number which is sent to you when you order your cylinders. This will mean nobody can get your keys and get a spare cut without the code if that were to ever happen. There's another brand called ultion lock which is designed by the same person who designed the abs cylinder. These cylinders are also very good.
Voted hot.... I know enough about barrels, bumps and backsets to understand the deal.
If you're going to change your locks for security, go for 3*, insurance companies may start insisting on these for back patio doors.

Bit of a useless ebay promoting post. Not recommended by me. Cold

You can get the locks with the same key, costs a bit extra but less fiddling with keys.
Slot is horizontal on the Avocet locks, with a bit of luck Mr Theif knows that and goes somewhere else.
Don't lose the card that comes with the lock, it is needed for replacement keys.

We have the Avocet locks on all six doors, keys keyed alike so one key fits all locks, and you end up with loads of spares. Quality locks and keys. And, have to agree, never have locks delivered to your name and home address. Just takes one unhappy or thieving employee of the key supply company to do his worst. Not worth taking any chances.

These locks are sufficient for what you need. It's the anti snap that you need the most. A pair of mole grips is all you need to snap the lock and it can be done by someone proficient in a minute or so with little or no sound. They should ban normal euro profile locks.

Yes there are better more expensive locks but this does the job for those on a budget

Yep looking at that one myself, TS007 3 star / SS312 standard at a minimum.
@jasee thanks for posting a decent deal, and fairplay on fighting your corner.
You'll always have the debate over which star lock you'll need but people don't realise that some manufacturers don't want to pay for the star rating so they can keep costs low. So you get excellent locks without ratings but the same quality. Just requires research.

I ordered mine from a company called Barnsley locks and safe. Once you put your cylinders into your online basket and proceed to checkout there is an option to add extra keys and to also have the locks keyed alike. Alternatively you can order over the phone if you wish.
