Peace of mind that very few people are capable of getting through this lock is well worth the cost of upgrading, plus they can be keyed alike, and the thumbturn is very convenient. All locks should be made this robust really, standard locks are far too easy to snap or pick, and don't offer any serious security like the ABS Avocet does. It feels well made, fells solid and is a doddle to fit by even the most basic DIY enthusiast. I sleep well knowing my doors and home are safe, secure and protected by this good quality and very robustly made lock.

Theses are good locks, but the measurements are a bit hit and miss. While they are flush inside, they aren’t outside and there’s no guidance other than measure to the outside of the handle plates, which I did. So either be prepared to send them back to get the correct size, or add 5mm either side

Fitting the locks is very simple and straightforward with only basic tools. They look good in the door and having KeyAlike is a great feature to have. Buying spare keys at the point of sale is cheap and worthwhile, especially if you have teenagers in the house! One last thing, the mechanism needed lubrication and then the keys had a nice feel when locking and unlocking.

These cylinders are very secure, the key is robust (could ever imagine it snapping), and the thumbturn action silky smooth.

Easy to measure, ordering from Safe was great, and simple to install.

They're expensive but worth it.

This (plus a matching key both sides cylinder) were used to replace one old cylinder (converting it to thumb turn on the inside - so much more convenient) and a second (outer door) cylinder that was only a year or so old but had started sticking, and could not be locked from outside. So far the new cylinders are good - quality is noticeably superior to the old ones, and the key matching service was very handy. Not cheap - but in this case I think the quality and additional security more than justifies the price. Ordering process was straightforward and they arrived as quoted.

An excellent lock security wise, well made and simple to fit, easy to use and a nice highly visible key that is easy to identify on a bunch of keys, the keys are coded so highly recommend this lock for insurance purposes and peace of mind.

Good fit, looks solid. I had to use my own existing shorter screws, otherwise it wouldn't lock, but I think that was because of my mortice locks.

It was easy to order a keyed alike set of 2 locks with different lengths, which I couldn't do on Avocet's website.

I purchased this along with four 50-50 locks as a keyed alike pack The locks are excellent quality and are about as secure as I can imagine is needed. As they are euro locks, fitting is a piece of cake (two screws are provide with each lock in case you can't use the original) and the mechanism is slick. The ordering process for the keyed alike is simple, and they arrived much sooner than I was expecting (easily within a week if I recall correctly). Better quality than the locks I replaced, and because they were keyed alike, only one key to carry instead of trying to figure out which key is the right one for the lock, and the thumbturn, in my opinion, is much better if you need to exit in an emergency.

Very happy with this. Good delivery time, literally just a few minutes to swap with the old lock barrel, and the fit is perfect. Looks good, easy to operate, and we feel so much more secure now. A great result.

I bought two Avocet ABS 3 Star Euro Thumbturn Cylinders which were keyed-alike - both cylinders work with the same key.

The keys don't have any sharp edges which helps to protect my pockets.

The cylinders are good quality, were easy to fit and easy to use.

The staff were really helpful and made it easy to get exactly what I needed.

The sizing guide on the website was clearly laid out and easy to use. I bought a matched pair of locks for a property and they fitted in no problem thanks to the guide. Order was shipped and delivered much sooner than indicated on the website which was a bonus.

I decided to replace my door cylinders as I wasn’t happy with the quality and security of my old ones. I chose these cylinders for their features and quality and I’ve not been disappointed.

These are beautifully made top quality high security cylinders (almost as shame to hide them in the door) and I chose the added feature of getting a pair with the same key for the front and back of my house. I fitted them both in a couple of minutes and I felt more secure immediately. The added convenience of only needing one key for both doors is a bonus. Highly recommended!

High quality product delivering excellent levels of security. Relatively expensive but a fraction of the cost of a break in! Keyed-alike means we’re not fumbling with multiple keys every time we get home. Thanks!

I purchased a set of four suited locks of various sizes to increase the security of our house. The keys look distinctive, are smooth and very easy to use. Fitting was easy, even for a novice like me. The locks appear of very good quality but I cannot independently rate how much they have improved the security over the locks previously fitted. It was easy to measure and order the correct sizes. I would recommend suited locks if you have several outside doors as it saves have a big bunch of keys and the search to find the right one! I have kept the old locks so that I can change one back if I need to give access to a workman without the worry of reducing the security all the locks!

3 star security and its stamped on the outside edge of the lock which is visible when it’s in situ.

These locks give top class service year in year out.They come with a new fitting bolt and and are very easy to fit. Loads of online guides to doing this if needed. The interior thumb turn is very convenient and safer in the unlikely but possible event of a fire. I’ve only given four stars for security as keyed both sides locks probably take the edge for this. However, it’s difficult to tell it’s a thumb turn from the exterior of a frosted glass door. I would advise that additional keys are ordered with the lock as well known high street shops charge over double for them if you need them later. Safe were the best on price for both the locks and additional keys.I ordered keyed alike locks and they were delivered within two days.first class service all round,Andrew Perry

I bought this lock with two others, all keyed alike. The locks were delivered promptly and were of the correct size and were all keyed alike correctly, including the additional spare keys I requested. It was easy to fit the lock, it even came with a new retaining screw. As it is anti-snap I feel a lot more secure in my house, as lock snapping has become a lot more of a common MO for burglars and is frighteningly easy to do. It also looks a lot better than my previous lock and feels more secure. Thanks very much!
