About Avocet ABS MK3

The market leading Avocet ABS MK3 Snap Secure cylinders offer the maximum high security  solution for wooden, aluminium, PVCu and composite doors.
Snap-Secure lock cylinders should not be confused with Anti-Snap cylinders. Where Snap-Secure cylinders are deliberately weakened to allow the cylinder to snap to activate the lockout device, Anti-Snap cylinders (e.g. Cisa Astral S) are reinforced cylinders which offer resistance to snapping attack.
The ABS MK3 cylinder has achieved BSI Kite Mark accreditation, "Secured By Design" approval, Sold Secure Diamond Standard SS312 and the latest BS:TS007:2012 3 Star certification.
The Sold Secure Diamond accreditation is the ultimate test for lock cylinders against snapping and bump key attack.

Beware - Do not accept so called snap-secure cylinders without the BS:007 3 star kite mark clearly displayed on the cylinder face - they offer little or no increase in security over standard cylinders and therefore may notbe acceptable by your insurer.

The ABS Secure MK3 cylinder features unique "Snap Secure" patented technology that ensures that if the door is attacked, the cylinder snaps in TWO places (not just one like all other anti-snap models) and totally blocks access to the internal mechanism of your door lock preventing entry.
