Euro cylinders are a very popular choice on todays modern doors, as well as being very popular on UPVC doors they are also very popular on wooden doors as mortice locks can be purchased that incorporate a euro cylinder, these are extremely useful in rented properties as replacing the lock is just a case of removing a screw and replacing the euro cylinder.

Unfortunately euro cylinders are not very secure and some models can be bumped, picked or snapped. Replacing a euro cylinder is a very simple job and can be carried out in minutes but it's important that you get the correct size. Please see euro cylinder sizes and replacing a UPVC door lock for more information.

Euro cylinders that are anti-bump, anti-pick and anti-snap are regarded as high security euro cylinders. It is quite common to see euro cylinders keyed alike and sold in pairs, these are normally used on French doors where both doors can be unlocked using the same key.
