Hi guys, my name is Darrel. I'm head of the tech
team here at locksonline.co.uk. Today we have in front of
us the Yale 3200 Euro Profile Mortise Sash Lock Case. That's
kind of a big mouthful.
Let's get it out of the bag and let's have a look at it so
you can see exactly what it is and how it all gets put
together. This particular lock case has been around for a
considerable amount of years. When I was on the tools many, many years ago
this was considered to be one of the best Euro profile
sash lock cases on the market at the particular time.
There are other companies out there now producing just as
good quality, but that doesn't mean to say that the quality of this lock
has been undermined in any sort of way.
Let's get it out and let's have a look at it in a little
bit more detail to give you some sort of idea. I'll
explain all the bits and pieces as I go. Of course, this is a
sash lock case. It's a mortise case, mortise lock. In other words, it
gets fitted into the door, hence the term mortise.
The sash version is this particular part here denotes this
as being a sash lock where you have a latch here which
will work on a handle here. The idea is that the
handle would operate that. Then, down here you would fit a Euro profile
cylinder. Euro profile cylinders, if you're not 100 percent
sure what a Euro profile cylinder is, you'll see
these particular types of cylinders on uPVC doors as standard
The reason why you may want to consider putting this
particular type of lock in your door is it may be that
you have a Yale type latch lock at the top and you've
got this particular lock at the bottom. Or, you've got a master key system
where you're using the Yale type key. You might want
to be able to have a deadlock facility but using just a
small key like you'd expect to see with a Yale lock
traditionally in the UK.
These are called Euro profile because they're shaped like
a keyhole. Euro profile originally first came out in
Europe. That's the reason why now it is more
common than most.
It comes as standard with an eight millimeter follower
here. This is where you'd put the spindle in for the
handle. As you've noticed here on this side here and
here there are cutouts to accept bolt through furniture should you so wish
to fit bolt through furniture on this particular
You'll also notice as well, if I turn it around here and
if you want to zoom in there, you'll see there's a
screw there. That screw there allows you to undo that,
and you can turn the latch around depending on the hanging of the door.
Also on the front as well look at the bolt here. If you'll
notice, the bolt has got anti-saw pins already built
inside as well. That's pretty standard with this
particular type of lock and hence the reason why, in my view, it's one of
the good reasons why it's considered a good quality lock.
The screw you see down here is the screw that would be
used in which to hold the cylinder into place. They come
in standard in two and a half inch back set. The one
that I have... Sorry, lock case. The one that I have here at the moment is
three inches. When I get around to measuring this a little
bit later on for you, if you want it at two and a half
drop everything down by roundabout 13 millimeters and that
will give you an idea of what a two and a half inch lock case.
They come standard in either brass finish... Here's the
brass finish. It's got a protective film over it, so
it's not showing as shiny as what it would be. But, you
can take the protective film off and then it would be all shiny and all
new. It comes also in a stainless steel finish as well.
The case, the keep for it, as you can see here is a full
bodied keep. Again, this is the brass. This is just a
protective film over this, guys. This isn't what the finish
would be. If you're zooming in you go oh that looks a bit tatty. But, it's
just a cover. That's all that is. Again, it's got the
full bodied keep here to get a lot more protection and
so forth on the bolt, et cetera.
The reason why they do this here is that there's nothing
stopping somebody from hacking out the frame. So, the bolt
then, you just open the door because you've got no frame.
But, of course, if you were to hack this out you're going to have to
get at this as well. It makes the job a hell of a lot harder.
It comes as standard with fixings as well.
Without further ado let me get some measurements for you.
You can then see whether or not this particular lock
is suitable for your door and your application.
Starting with the front of the lock we've got a fore end
width there of 25 millimeters which is pretty
industry standard these days. We've got a fore end
height there of 153 millimeters.
I'll give you those centres as well, the fixing centres,
which is quite important if you're thinking of
retrofitting. I'm getting roughly about 127 millimeter centres
there, roughly anyway.
The case depth there is 75 millimeters. The back set,
which is the face plate to the centre of where you put
the keyhole in or the spindle, this particular part
here's called a back set, that there is standard at 56 millimeters, 56, 57
millimeters. The case height is 110, say 109, 108
millimeters. The thickness there is 16 millimeters.
There you go. There's a full range. Like I said, there's
brass available. There's two and a half inch cases
available as well as the three inch. In my view I think this is
a good quality lock. If you're thinking of investing in this particular
type of lock you won't go far wrong. It's made by
Yale, reputation precedes itself.
The last word from me here, if you want more information
feel free to pop online, or give us a phone call, or
pop us an email. We'd love to hear from you.
Hopefully, you may consider buying from us as well.
Anyway, I appreciate your time. My name's Darrel. I'm head
of the tech team. Take care. Until later, bye bye now.
