Ever been locked out of the house because somebody decided to leave their key in the lock on the inside when they went to bed? Or while they go for a nice long bath?
Meanwhile, you're stuck outside cursing the mere existence of security! But don't dismiss locking the door just yet! Our Anti-Lockout Cylinders allow you to unlock the door even if there's a key left inside!
On a typical euro cylinder, you may find that you cannot unlock the door from the outside if a key has been left on the inside. This is fairly normal, and isn't a fault or a mistake. It is simply how most cylinders are designed. In some cases, you may actually enjoy this functionality, as it may give you a little extra peace of mind knowing that even with a key, nobody can get in.
However, most of us have been caught out at one time or another by this, and have been unable to unlock the door because someone left a key in the lock! It's frustrating, and the last thing you want when you get home from work is to have to stand outside waiting for someone to answer, at your own house!
Similarly, if you've had a late night and you're back a bit later than expected, and your partner or whoever else has locked the door and left the key in the door when they go to bed, the last thing you need is to have to make that dreaded phone call to wake them up asking to be let in! Then you really would be in the dog-house!
Don't land yourself in the dog-house - upgrade to an anti-lockout cylinder!
As well as offering you this invaluable convenience, it is worth noting also that these are very high-security cylinders. Reinforced by solid steel cores, these cylinders are snap-resistant, as well as anti-pick, anti-drill and anti-bump. Everything you could want from a euro cylinder! And yet there's more. All our LocksOnline EPS cylinders also come registered with unique key numbers on our own patent-protected profile. You can therefore control who is authorised to get keys cut, and because it's our own profile, nobody can go and get keys cut freely without you informing us directly that you wish for them to be authorised to have copies of your keys cut.
Perfect for the elderly or disabled, where carers need access!
With this managed service we offer, combined with the anti-lockout functionality of this particular cylinder, this makes them perfect for homes where carers and other employed helpers may be given keys to gain access to the property. If the resident leaves their key in the door, no problem! The carer can still get in. And at the same time, you can rest assured that they cannot get keys cut without your authorisation. Perfect!
This is just one of many amazing features we can offer with our LocksOnline EPS cylinders - including master-keying and keying-alike services, which at the time of writing this article is absolutely free! But by all means, if you have something else you need to achieve with a cylinder suite, just let us know! We are always happy to help and welcome a good challenge! :-)
