B&M are selling Yale products, Euro Profile Cylinder locks,, padlocks, 3 lever and sash locks heavily reduced from £7.99 down to £1.99. This is not a clearance item and so should be national. Excellent opportunity to purchase these branded locks.

Are these heavy duty locks heavily discounted then?

Meant to add same sash locks are twenty pounds upwards in BQ stores

On my way now. Need few bits like that

Yes as the description says sash, euro cylinder etc all reduced.

Just because its a Yale doesnt mean its a GOOD lock, Yale make some really excellent Locks Cylinder barrels padlocks etc and Euro Cylinders, they also make some that can be opened with a screwdriver, make sure its a Kite marked one and check what security rating it is before buying. There are Yale Euro Cylinders available on ebay for less than a fiver and they are useless.

this is a "bolting" deal. heat secured.

I'm not usually not down on deals:

Save the money and buy decent locks like ABS Avocet. That said, these are better than nothing, but barely.

(I'm no expert but 15 mins with a pick set from eBay and I could pick every lock/padlock in sub 10 seconds)

​*every lock in our house, that is.

I agree about getting ABS Avocet locks. Excellent. They can't be bumped but they can be picked but not nearly as easily as the normal Euro Cylinder.

I am not a lock expert nor claim to be , however 1.99 for this lock is tremendous value with the same one in BQ for over £20. They are all kite marked, with the padlocks sitting on a five on the scale for security.

82% of house break ins are through an open window or unlocked door, not with the thief sitting with a picking set purchased on ebay. Most locks can be picked but that is usually by a pro locksmith trying to get you access to your home when you are locked out .

Good advice, I'm in the market for a new lock.

​Most theft is also spur of the moment rather then planned, which is where this stat comes from.

The game is to make your house look more secure then your neighbours, don't go mental with security but don't be the easy target.

Simple euros can be bumped or snapped in seconds, check out YouTube.

Being honest, £40-£50 *per lock* isn't cheap BUT the hassle it could save is massive. Not to mention the horrible feeling someone's been in your house (which for me, is worse).

Yep.

It's worth considering TCO as well. Insurance companies will ask about the types of locks you have on your property, and will charge more or less depending on how secure they are. An extra few quid up-front could save you a lot long-term.

It's nonsense that these are easy to pick. I was there trying for 20 minutes today, but couldn't decide, so left without picking one.

This is ideal.
Bought a lock picking set for Christmas, managed to open the transparent test lock eventually but wondered if it was deliberately easier given it was a test lock. Found a new Abus padlock in my kitchen drawer so I set about that and picked it eventually and it's really becoming addictive to search out locks for picking.
Not sure I want to try my front door

​I found the transparent lock harder to pick, possibly as it's made cheaply (pins stick for some reason, even after oiling) All other locks I tried were easier.

By professional locksmiths who have had many years experience & having had many many failures on the same locks......

Security wise I'd take my Mauer over the vast majority of locks available !! We were once locked out of out house & had high security BS locks on the door...supposedly pick, break & bump proof.....the locksmith opened it in under 15 seconds

agreed, or they use a lock snapper

Yale basic range...

I'm an mla approved locksmith and wouldn't recommend these to anybody except for basic tasks (garden boxes etc.)
However these locks generally retail at around a tenner each so for £1.99 they are a good deal, just don't expect them to repel any kind of attack.

Thanks OP, can confirm the 3 lever mortice went through at £1.99 in my local B&M despite the SEL still saying £7

Good price, but I wouldn't use them personally. I upgraded all my euro cylinders to Avocets last year, expensive, but worth it, I think. I would also recommend 2 ** handles too.

so, for us non locksmiths, what would you recommend as being a worthwhile euro cylinder lock?

There are a number of decent BS kited anti snap euro cyclinder locks available, expect to pay around £18-£25 though.

Also if you buy a "normal" euro profile make sure the front part is flush with the handle, it can still be "bumped" but not "snapped" as there is nothing sticking out for the mole grips to fit onto.

I have lost count of the amount of locks I have picked (professionally and the actual cost is relative to the security offered broadly speaking.

thanks really good deal. I was in the market for new locks for the whole house

7 locks for around £30 that is a bargain!

Any 3 star rated bs cylinder. If budget permits I'd always recommend Ultion 3 Star Cylinders, But any 3 star rated cylinder is worth the asking price.
