Hi guys. My name is Darrel and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk. And today we're going to have a look at these high security escutcheons for Euro profile cylinders that are made by a company called Enfield.
So here they are here, and what would you use these for and why would you consider wanting to use high security escutcheons, what's the purpose behind it? Well, if you've got a wooden door and you wanted to fit a dead lock into the door but you wanted a typical Yale type key, then what you would need to do is fit a Euro profile cylinder. That's similar to what you would find in a uPVC door these days.
And consequently, by fitting the lock into the door, the cylinder's going to stick out either side, and the fact that the cylinder sticks out can mean that it's quite vulnerable. So what these escutcheons do is beef up the security around the actual cylinder itself on the outside.
So without further ado, let's get it out of the box and we can actually have a look. And I've got a lock case here and I've got a cylinder as well. So we'll have a look and see how these will actually fit when it comes to looking at the complete locking solution.
So, let's get these out of the bag here. Okay. We've got the back plate here. This is the actual back plate here. I mean this is quite a substantial piece of engineering, this middle steel here. I don't know if you can zoom in to see how wide that is, the width of it. If I get a measurement on that, give you some sort of idea. I mean that's 12 millimetres thick. So that's a fair lump of metal there, and the idea is that's the back. That's not necessarily the front. The front is this piece here. And again, it wouldn't surprise me that it's the same thickness. Yeah. It's bang on 12.5 millimetres.
Now the idea is this is the actual security escutcheon that sits inside that like that, and on the back of this cylinder here, I don't know if you can zoom in on that for us there Lee, you can see that it's shaped like a Euro profile cylinder. If I turn it up the right way it would help. And it's shaped like a Euro profile cylinder. And you've got a grub screw on either side there, and the idea is within the packaging, you would actually fit your cylinder inside there and then you'd use the grub screws to tighten up against that cylinder and then you'd put the outer shroud on.
So that may sound a little bit complicated, so what I'm going to do is I'm going to show you. I've got a cylinder here. And here's a Euro profile cylinder. So the idea is that this would be sitting in the door. Here is a lock case, just to give you some sort of idea. This is the lock case you'd fit inside the door, and this is the cylinder then that sits inside the lock case like that, and then this is the part then that you see on the outside.
So what would happen is, is that would sit in there like that and you would use the Allen key and you would clamp that into position there like that. You'd use the Allen key. I don't know if you can zoom in there, it's quite tight. There's an Allen key on both sides. And then you'd clamp that into there and that would be tight. That would be solid there, so anybody who is trying to attack your cylinder now is going to have to get through this before they even get to the cylinder. Then this outer shroud sits over that like that. Put that in there like that, and that sits on there like that, and then this then is bolted through. I don't know if you can see that, there's bolt fixings here, and then this one would sit on the back like that and the two would be bolted together, clamped through the actual door itself. And of course the lock case would be sitting in the side there.
The security on these as far as I'm concerned, is an absolute must. If you're thinking of fitting a Euro profile lock on a wooden door and you want good security for the dead lock and on the cylinder etc., you really seriously need to be considering these.
So without further ado, let me get some measurements for you to give you some sort of idea. The overall diameter of these is 54, 55 millimetres. So the overall diameter, I'll just get myself in there a second. There you go. That there is 55 millimetres, okay? Now the fixing centres, because 80% or 90%, if I show you this particular lock case here, a lot of lock cases have got these holes here guys. Can you see them there? And those holes are designed for these particular type of centres. They're universal.
This one's got two different sizes. Look, that one there and that one there, and then these ones smaller down. So this particular lock case is designed for loads of different ones. But this one here will work with this particular lock case so I'll just put that to one side. But if you've got a different lock case, you're using a different lock case, the centres on these is, I'm going to say, about 37, 38 millimetres. Thereabouts, anyway. About more 38 millimetres.
So there you go. That's what they're designed for. They're now available on the LocksOnline website. Like I said, they're designed to work with a mortice dead lock in a wooden door or a composite door. The idea is to get as much security around that cylinder, as it's now known that cylinders are quite vulnerable when it comes to security on doors.
So from me, Darrel Walters, may I take this opportunity to thank you for listening to me drone on a little bit, and I hope this little video has explained these high security escutcheons that we have on our site.
In the meantime, thank you very much and look forward to seeing you real soon. Take care. Bye bye.
