Yale Superior Series Keyed Alike Euro Profile Cylinder Lock with High Security Key Technology
Yale's Latest High Security Double Anti Snap Lock.
For UPVC, Timber, Composite and Aluminium doors.
There is no better reason for upgrading your lock than the Yale Superior cylinder lock series, designed to fit all standard European Profile Cylinder locks (such as those fitted to uPVC and some timber and aluminium doors). The Yale Superior cylinder offers superior resistance against all current known attack methods such as cylinder bumping, snapping, drilling and picking.
Our Yale Superior Keyed Alike Door Cylinder Locks are sold in pairs and are often used for front and back doors to make life easier by being able to use the same key in both locks. Each pack comes with 2 locks and 3 Keyed Alike keys.
The Yale Superior cylinder lock carries the latest BS kite mark KM559658 with Secure By Design approved TS007 1* Star rating and has been independently tested and meets the prestigious British Standard BS EN1303:2005.
One of the outstanding features is the Yale laser cut dimple key and because the horizontal keyway of a dimple lock are very small, it makes insertion and use of traditional pick tools very difficult. If you are looking for superior security for your home, this is a great lock to choose.
Available in Chrome or Brass

The size of cylinder you need is determined by the thickness of the door and handle combination, for this reason there are many sizes available and you will need to be careful that you measure the cylinder accurately (one size will not fit all). It is possible to measure a door cylinder in the door, but to be sure it's best to remove it first.
Your new door cylinder should protrude by no more than 5mm from the handle back plates. It is most sensible to go for exactly the same size as you are replacing (unless your old cylinder was protruding excessively).
Measurement A - Measure from one end of the cylinder to the middle of the central screw hole.
Measurement B - Measure from the other end to the middle of the central screw hole.
Now check your measurements
Measure the overall cylinder length from end to end. The length of the cylinder should equal the sum of measurements (A) and (B) when added together.
For example: If measurement (A) = 45mm and measurement (B) = 50mm the size required would be 45/50 cylinder (95mm in length). No further measurements are required
Please note: These cylinders feature anti-snap security on both sides therefore ordering a 45/50 cylinder is the same as ordering a 50/45 cylinder.
How far should a door cylinder protrude out of the door handle?
Your new door cylinder should protrude between 2mm and 5mm from the handle back plates, but due to the overall lengths of cylinders available this is not always possible. It is most sensible to go for exactly the same size as you are replacing (unless your old cylinder was protruding excessively).
How do I fit a new door cylinder?
These easy to fit replacement Yale cylinders enhance the security of your door and can be fitted by a DIY novice in minutes!
What is "lock snapping" ?
Thieves have devised methods of snapping these types of cylinders locks in a matter of seconds and still be able to operate the lock to open the door.
This threat can be considerably reduced simply by upgrading the cylinder to one that is specifically designed to prevent this method of attack. We recommend that all vulnerable doors using Euro-Profile cylinders be upgraded to incorporate 'Break Secure' cylinders.Euro cylinders are mainly fitted to uPVC doors but some aluminium and wooden doors also use this type of lock
