Cylinder Security Features

Bumping is a method where locks are tricked into opening as the believe the correct key has been inserted

A specially crafted bump key is used, and through striking the key into the lock, it caused the pins to jump up and down, and eventually line up so the lock can be opened. There is often little trace that a lock has been bumped (only through forensic testing) and insurance companies will often not pay out as they believe that the door has been left open. UAP+ cylinders use a patented anti-bump system to prevent this from happening. It is a truly formidable barrier to lock bumping.

4 x hardened steel anti-drill pins in each side of the cylinder, 2 in the plug and 2 in the barrel. These require a special drill bit to break through. Common drill bits will have no effect. Plus all moving pins are nickel plated hardened steel 50 HRC minimum.

A minimum of 3 anti-pick pins are in each side of the cylinder which makes it extremely difficult for a common burglar to pick the cylinder.

Fitting Instructions:

1) Carefully mark out the position of the cylinder on the door. It should go exactly 40mm from the edge of the door.

2) Drill a hole where you have marked using a 32mm drill bit; make sure you keep the drill level.

3) Feed the cylinder through the hole and make sure the connecting bar is the correct length – trim if not.

4) With the supplied bolts, bolt the mounting plate to the cylinder. As you tighten them, position the plate 1.5mm from the edge of the door.

5) Ensure the bracket is in the right place by temporarily attaching the latch. To do this place the latch onto the bracket and locate the cylinder’s bar, putting it into the hole on the latch by a few mm. The latch should be perfectly level with the edge of the door.

6) Screw the bracket in place when you are happy with the position.

7) Re-attach the latch and secure it with 2 small retaining bolts.

8) Close the door and using the latch as your guide mark the position for the strike plate ensuring it is lined up perfectly.

9) The strike plate needs to be recessed into the door frame. Open the door then mark round the strike place.

10) Chisel out where you have marked so the strike plate sits flush with the door frame. Screw the plate down.
