Cylinder Locks are easy to fit and replace, however you do need to have the right size for your door. Here we show you how to measure the size of the Cylinder for your door.
1 - Open the door and view from the edge of the door at lock level.
2 - Locate the Securing Bolt on the edge of the door at the exact height of the Cylinder Lock.
3 - Measure from the centre of the Securing Bolt to the outer edge of the handle backplate on the outside of the door.
4 - Now measure from the centre of the Securing Bolt to the outer edge of the handle backplate on the inside of the door.
These measurements may be identical, in which case you need to choose a Standard Double Cylinder. If the Outside and Inside measurements are not identical you will need to specify an Offset Double Cylinder. (Ensure you specify carefully which measurement is Inside and which is Outside when choosing an Offset Cylinder with Turn.)
We recommend that your Cylinder does not protrude through the door handle plate by any more than 5mm for added security.
