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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

As expected the product is of great quality and I am very happy with it.

However, More importantly, I was extremely impressed with safe.co.uk's service. The website is extremely intuitive and made ordering and building my package incredibly simple and the parcel was delivered earlier than expected!

Would definitely buy again with confidence from safe.co.uk.

Good customer service l, highly accessible and useful guides on line to help you size product with a solid lump that feels very robust in action.

Extra keys were easy to order and the whole thing comes a card to register your details for reference later

Admittedly expensive, but nothing else available that is 5* and keyed alike

I fitted 7 of these locks to my new property. Although the burglar alarm is a deterrent I wanted top quality locks as a first line of defence. Hopefully, the kite mark is a further deterrent against intruders. Additionally for the two sets of French doors we chose the internal thumb turn for ease of use on warmer days.

These locks are packed with security features and are so easy to fit and the advice provided by Safe was clear and helpful. Finally, the key card provided for additional keys is a further additional security feature.

I fully recommend these locks. Take care in measuring your existing locks and you’ll have no problems and greatly enhanced security.

Got a pair of these keyed-alike for my front and back doors. Absolutely trivial to install, was done with both doors in about 5 minutes, works smoothly, confident in the security.

It isn't visible in the photos, but the thumbturn has about 5-6mm clearance from the end of the lock body (slightly spring loaded), so it'll turn even with bits of the door hardware being a bit raised.

I read elsewhere that the lock can't be opened unless the thumbturn is in a particular position - this doesn't seem to be true, it works well whatever the position, just need to turn it a bit more. Note the odd shape of the thumbturn means it won't work with some of the smart-lock kits out there, if that's important to you.

The keys are really smooth to use, and go in either way up, but the handle end is a bit chunky - not ridiculously so, but enough to notice. Note ordering more keys from ABS later is EXPENSIVE - £21.50 a key currently, so better order all you might need upfront.

The Avocet locks are perfect for my needs, we have Keyed Alike and I had measured one the wrong way round, so sent the code to Safe and the right measurements and the lock and keys all the same as the previous arrived within a few days.

Ok, so this is a cylinder for changing the locks, as it were. I didn't know much about them until recently but now I realise how useful this is. My house has four doors and they are all eurocylinder sorts, which are very common on modern doors. Realising this, I now have all the doors using the same key which is really better because I can use a single key and use any door rather than having several.

The next thing I learned was that the difference is the length of the cylinder, measured from the centre to the ends as it has a fixing screw.

Changing them is trivial. Do it once and you'll know how from then on - easier than changing a plug fuse.

Security? Well, that's hard to say, really. Nobody has broken in so far and it seems I can't get local locksmiths to cut me a new key, which bodes well. There are features that you want, e.g. a breaking end so if someone twists the lock with a big lever it just breaks off rather than unlocking the door. A bunch of other things, e.g. anti pick, etc. Some of these have to be supported by the door, e.g. the pins and whatnot.

Not hugely cheap but not pricey either. I am well pleased, so far anyway.

I am ordering two cylinders. Will they come with three keys in total or 6? Will they have the same keys applying to both locks?
Raj, St albans
If you are ordering keyed alike cylinders you will only receive 3 keys in total for the number of cylinders you order. If you would like all of the cylinders to work using the one key, you will need to select the keyed alike option.
