If you need advice, please call us on 0500 103740.IMPORTANT NOTES:
We strongly advise you to contact your insurer before installing thumbturn locks, as some may not accept them. (Note - xx/30mm EXT sizes do not comply to BS-TS007:2012 3 star due to the cylinder having 6 combination pins, compared to 8 in all other sizes).
Keyed alike locks are supplied with 3 keys per set NOT per lock. You can order extra keys above.
ABS Thumbturn cylinders should not be used on locks with a night latch function i.e. where door locks automatically when closed (as a lock out may occur). An ABS double cylinder should be considered instead.
Care should be taken when using the ABS thumbturn cylinder. The thumbturn is spring loaded to comply with the new TS008 maximum security standard, this is a security feature whereby the thumbturn cannot be "fished" to unlock the door from outside. THE THUMBTURN MUST BE PUSHED IN TO TURN AND MUST BE RELEASED BACK TO ITS ORIGINAL OUT POSITION AFTER EVERY OPERATION: This is a design feature to ensure that the lock is always in the correct position to resist external attack. IF THE THUMBTURN IS LEFT IN THE MIDWAY POSITION (IE: THE SPRING MECHANISM HAS NOT RELEASED) YOU WILL ENCOUNTER A PROBLEM INSERTING THE KEY FULLY FROM THE OUTSIDE.
On a lever outside / lever inside operation door this means that you could be locked out if a member of your household has locked the door from the inside and not returned the thumbturn to the correct position.
On a pad outside / lever inside operation this means you could lock yourself out of your home if you do not return the thumbturn to the correct position on opening the door, and the door closes behind you. In this instance we recommend an ABS double cylinder should be installed.
