This is the Abus Codeloxx now available at LocksOnline – a Euro Profile Cylinder with a combination chamber like that of a traditional safe, so no need for keys, you just need the code!
Great for retrofitting on existing euro-profile locks, as you can simply swap out a standard euro cylinder you currently operate by key or thumbturn, and replace it with one of these digital combination cylinders. This removes the need to cover up or fill in existing holes when you want to have a combination lock on the door – now there’s absolutely no need to fit a new combination locking mechanism – just a cylinder replacement! Ideal for offices, store rooms, or even around the home!
One end has free-operation, which would be used on the inside of the door, and allows you to operate the cam freely without entering a code, much like a standard thumbturn. This means there’s no escape hazard, as free-egress is available. On the outside then, you have the combination side of things, which will only operate the centre cam when a correct code has been entered. Very clever stuff!
It is worth bearing in mind that these do come in many different variants, not just in size but in functionality. You can get them with proximity readers instead, and with some other unique features but what we have here is the combination cylinder as we feel this is the most practical and useful idea of them all – to replace an existing euro cylinder with a combination lock.
Battery replacement is nice and easy, simply using the removal tool you can remove the end-cap of the internal thumbturn, pop the battery out, and swap in a new one. This is also where the master reset button sits, so you can return the combination cylinder to its factory state. All nice and easy!
On the other end then – the external side with the combination function – we have a series of grub screws you can undo with an alan key – or you may know it as a hex key – which is how you would physically remove the one end of the cylinder, so that you can insert the cylinder through the door and into the lock case. Then simply screw the head back on. Again, very simple to install!
You can program up to 500 codes into these, which gives phenomenal scope for a lot of users. Adding and deleting codes is simple, and you can watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V26TeNp-VOQ
