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.

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.

Just moved into a new home with some keys missing and only a single key for some of the locks, so I decided to upgrade all around. I went with safe.co.uk so I could have a single key for 6 different locks and went with thumb-turn cylinders for fire safety.

Having a single key means that losing it can be expensive, especially if you think you might need to change the locks (you have to replace every lock rather than just one), but otherwise it's now considered fine from a security perspective. Equally thumb-turn locks aren't considered to be the most secure, but the fire safety benefit makes the overall benefit worth it. I went with the 3-star rated lock to counterbalance these concerns somewhat.

It wasn't the cheapest route to go down, but we're loving only requiring a single key, and not needing a key to lock up at night. No regrets.

I'm absolutely delighted by this euro cylinder. I bought it as part of a set of 3 keyed-alike cylinders for a house purchase. A feature I was particularly impressed by is the fact that the thumbturn is the same profile as the rest of the cylinder, meaning I didn't have to fiddle with an allen key to remove and replace the turn unit. Overall, a unit and a brand that I would have no hesitation in recommending.

The cylinder locks are just what I needed to provide the security I wanted for my external doors. The locks are well made and work perfectly, also very easy to fit, and look good. I also like the fact I could have these locked keyed alike. I would recommend these locks if home security is important to you.

Very easy to fit, and seems solid. I don't have enough knowledge to say much about security, but the lockpicking lawyer over on Youtube says good things about these locks.

The 'turn alike' feature is fantastic; I've never had it before, and didn't realise I'd like it as much as I do. It doesn't sound like a big deal to have to carry fewer keys around, but never having to search for the right key at the door is great.

They did cost more than I'd ideally like to have paid - but they look as though they will last many years.

The locks were of excellent quality and very easy to fit. The website offered simple instructions to allow the correct sizes to be measured. The key alike system works really well and allows the same key to be used in several doors. The delivery was extremely fast and secure. No problems at all.

With the abs cylinder locks with inside turn knob where the key hole should be, when turned to lock can this be unlocked by inserting key on outside and unlocking or will it not turn and stay locked?

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.
