Hi, guys. My name is Darrel and I am head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a quick look at one of our product review videos. Now, we're putting these short little videos together to be able to give you, our customers, the opportunity to see the products that we have to offer in, hopefully, a bit more detail, in the flesh, so to speak.
So today I want to show you a security escutcheon that we have on our website. It's designed to work with a range of euro profile locks that you will see there is a list there underneath the product that this particular escutcheon will work with, etc.
So this is the actual escutcheon itself. So from the outside as you can see there all you see is this oval shape here with a slot in which to put the key into, so to speak. So the idea is that this would sit on, it would then bolt through into this particular piece that sits on the back, and therefore then you would be able to clamp the two together. So you have these screw fixings here, and therefore then, that would then clamp itself into there like that and if I was to put that one there like that and then also this one here like that, and that would give you an idea.
If you can imagine this now would be secured onto a door and therefore that's what you'll see on either side. You'll see the inside there would look like that, and then on the outside then you'll see this particular shroud here.
Now, just to give you a quick measurement of that. I've screwed those in a couple of millimetres, but the distance I'm getting is about 50 millimetres. So to be honest with you, you're going to be safe using these on a standard external door in the U.K. of about 44 millimetres. So there wouldn't be any problems in respect to that. So that's quite well worth knowing.
One of the things as well that the manufactures have done, is they also supplied two little miniature ball bearings that are in the packet there as you can see. Now the idea of these ball bearings other than losing them, which might happen, but the idea is that you would actually pop that ball bearing in there first and then screw, screw in. And the idea is then if anybody managed to work out where the holes are in which to drill this escutcheon off, then what's going to end up happening is you're going to end up hitting those ball bearings, and that's going to make it incredibly difficult. It's going to make the drill bit sway all over the place, so therefore it's going to make it incredibly difficult to try and hit that off the front of the door. So that's well worth considering there.
Now, another thing to bear in mind as well is that if I've got a cylinder here just to show you that would actually sit in there, the bijection [SP] would sit in there so what you would see is that there. And I've got a key, and if I was to put a key in there, you'll see then that it does absorb a bit of the actual key itself as you can see there. So you need to be mindful of that and that still operates there, and that's with it sitting up flush. But it does actually absorb a little bit of the shoulder on the key here as well. So you need to be aware of that.
Now the projection for that is if I was to get a vernal [SP] on that and pop that into there the bijection is round about the 13 millimetres. So that's how much the cylinder can project outside of the door when you actually pop these on, but the maximum is going to be 13 millimetres. You'll probably be looking right around ten millimetres, no more.
Of course, this sides slightly different because the actual cylinder can actually come through here, no problem at all and the thickness of that just to give you an example is probably 11 millimetres. So if the cylinder came out here slightly that wouldn't be an issue whatsoever. So there you go.
Another important thing is well, is these centres here. Not all manufactures of euro profile locks have these particular centres. So it's well worth me getting that measurement for you so therefore if you think there's a particular one you're interested in and you'd like to use these, then this measurement is quite critical. On the actual centres there as you can see there are 20 millimetres there on the steel ruler.
So there you go, guys. Absolutely fabulous piece of kit. It really extenuates the security of using a euro profile, typically, on a wooden door and where you need that additional security from the cylinder being attacked. So with those and a good quality cylinder like the LocksOnline EPS range, you're going to be looking at some seriously good graded security there.
But listen, if you need a bit more information on this or any of the products we have, pop us over an email, use the live chat, or give us a call. Either way, we'd love to hear from you and more importantly, we'd love to see you as one of our customers. So for me, Darrel, and all of us at the team, thanks for taking the time to tune in. Catch with you real soon then. Take care. Bye, bye.
