The cylinder is the part of the door where you insert a key. When the right key is used the cylinder lock inside the door will be activated. This will cause the locking mechanism to be opened or closed. A cylinder is the core of your door security. Even if you posses the best locks in the world, the protection of your external doors is as good as your cylinder lock.

In most cases, burglars try to remove or disable the cylinder so they can open the lock easily. Known burglary methods are lock-drilling, snapping and bumping. Our SKG*** cylinders amply meet SKG-IKOB’s requirements and are therefore resistant to these break-in methods.
