This cylinder has a special stainless steel bridge. Stainless steel is a very strong material makes breaking the bridge virtually impossible.
The M&C MINOS is named after the mythological King Minos of Crete, who had a labyrinth built so well secured that even the dangerous minotaur could not escape.

The rounded shapes where the key enters this cylinder help to guide the key even better.
Prevents drilling and core pulling

What size cylinder do I need?
To know what size cylinder you need, you need to take 2 measurements: the inner measurement and the outer measurement. These can be two different measurements.
|Measure cylinder in door:
View the door from the face side, then measure the distance from the center of the cylinder screw to the flat side of the door fittings. Do this for both the inside and outside.
|Measure current cylinder:
Remove your current cylinder from the door by unscrewing the cylinder screw. Then measure the length from the center of the cylinder screw to the left and right.
Note the lengths of the inside and outside measurements in millimeters, this is the size of the cylinder you need. For example, 32/32. Note that for maximum security, the cylinder should not protrude more than 3mm on the outside of the door fittings.
The M&C Minos has a durable metal dimple key. A dimple key gives you supreme convenience because it can be inserted into the lock in two ways.
M&C cylinder spray
M&C cylinder spray is the best lubricant for our cylinders. This quality spray lubricates the cylinder, and repels dirt and moisture, thus preventing wear and extending the lifespan.

Keys and cylinders can only be reordered with the standard included M&C Security Card. This gives you extra security and prevents unauthorized copying of your key.
