Product Information
Fitting Instructions

UAP is one of the leading cylinder manufacturers in the industry. The UAP Standard Security Thumb Turn 1* Kitemarked Cylinder is avaliable with a Push-2-Turn feature, created in accordance with the British Standards Kitemark, and also awarded the “Secured by Design” approval by the Association of Police Officers, designed to ward off criminals that attempt to break in to your home using the most common burglary methods.

The thumb turn is a special ‘D’ shape. This has been designed to make it easier to operate, with better grip and easier turning. This is therefore ideal for people who are elderly, have arthritis or have limited hand movement.

How to measure what size cylinder you need

The easiest way to measure what size cylinder you need, is to purchase the MAX6MUM SECURITY cylinder gauge. This fits together as shown above. However you can also use a ruler. To find out what size cylinder you need, follow the below instructions:

1 - Put the centre of the cylinder gauge (B) into the retaining screw hole on your door (there is no need to remove the retaining screw).

2 - Adjust the lever (A) on the gauge to the end of your door handle (do not measure what the exisiting cylinder is at it may be the wrong size and cause the cylinder to overhang, which makes it vulnerable to burglars).

3 - Read off measurement (A) on the gauge.

4 - Repeat steps 2 and 3 for side (C).

5 - You will now have 2 measurements for (A) and (C) in mm. If your measurement is an odd size (not divisible by 5) i.e. 38mm, round it up to the nearest 5mm, so this would be a measurement of 40mm.

If measurement (A) is 40mm, and measurement (C) is 50mm, the cylinder size you would need is a 40/50 cylinder (smallest measurement size usually comes first in the listing) which is 90mm overall. If measurement (A) is 50mm, and measurement (C) is 40mm, again the cylinder size you will need is a 40/50 cylinder as all the cylinders are revisable, and have security features on both sides. 

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

Removing Your Old Cylinder

1. Place your key into the cylinder and open your door.

2. Use a screw driver to remove the retaining screw from the cylinder (located underneath the latch and in line with the cylinder.)

3. Turn the key approximately 30 degrees either clockwise or anti-clockwise (either at 10 or 2 o’clock.)

4. Apply slight pressure to the opposite end of the cylinder so the cam (black latch in the centre of the cylinder) lines up with the cylinder body.

5. Slowly slide the cylinder out of the door towards yourself.

Fitting Your New Cylinder

1. Place your new key into the new cylinder.

2. Turn the key approximately 30 degrees either clockwise or anti-clockwise (either at 10 or 2 o’clock) so the cam lines up with the cylinder body.

3. Slide the cylinder into the door.

4. Place the new retaining screw into the door’s fixing hole, and use a screw driver to tighten so it is secure.

WARNING – DO NOT over tighten the retaining screw, as it will place strain on the cylinder cam and cause it to not function correctly.
