Replace armored door lock - from double bit to European cylinder with defender

The lock is an important and very important part of the door, because it is an element that can open and close the door. The first lock for armored doors was twice as small, and although it changed the security concept in the past, it is now considered obsolete because it can be easily opened with simple tools or double keys. . Therefore, we recommend replacing the two-bit model with a modern one, with a European cylinder. This, of course, consists of a cylindrical lock control key and a lock opening mechanism. The cylinder insert is a very important part, because after removing it, the door can be opened with a simple screwdriver. The defender is an important part of the European cylinder lock; it is a steel boss that protects the cylinder from being damaged by burglary or other manipulation.

Why does the lock change?

As with the use of technology, it is important to keep in mind that any closure longer than four to five years is at risk, due to past experience and that the assets available to thieves also evolve.

Today’s thieves can use a special tool called “Bulgarian Pick or Bulgarian Key” to unlock these locks in seconds. All this without leaving a line and above all without noise.

Retaliation with your own insurance is also problematic in this case, as the offense cannot be proven. Presumably the intruder already has the key to the explosion.

What is replaced when changing locks?

Replace the double lock of the EUROPEAN CYLINDER with the security key and the owner card, replacing it with a simple lock without damaging the door.
Keys are locked and shipped with a card which ensures members must generate keys only in special authorized locations.
In addition, to protect the cylinder, it is recommended to “cover” the outer door of the cylinder and equip it with the DEFENDER, a metal guide that protects it from entry attempts.

If your padlock is old and you are worried that it will break all the time, call an optician and we will replace it immediately.

What is the lock transformation?

Thanks to the impact of rapid replacement, old locks can be repaired and replaced before it’s too late, so you can continue to sleep in peace without fear of breaking the door.

To replace means to change the door lock (wooden or hardware) by changing the type of key that opens the lock itself. This operation includes changing the port.

Frequently Asked Questions

Then the cylinder or the entire lock must be replaced.

To understand the difference between a cylinder and a lock, one must first understand everything about the machine that can close the door.

The lock time refers to the entire mechanism. Thus, the lock is a set of hardware that allows the door to be closed and opened, which will include, but is not required to be, the cylinder.

A cylinder, on the other hand, is a device that attaches to a lock and has a small piston and a spring that is pressed properly by a key to lock/lock the open/close mechanism. Due to this, the role of the cylinder is transmitted to the force of the key to the lock. There are many models, but now the most popular model in Italy is the European cylinder with round and oval profiles.

From a practical point of view, it can be said that the lock is the largest, and it can open and close the heaviest door. A cylinder, on the other hand, is something you find in the lock that has a weight and size.

In the market, you can find many types of locks, each with its own unique set of features and functions. Here are the key points:

Mechanical lock, opened with key, and can have card, gear or pressure lock.
Electronic/reprogrammable locks, typically used in hotels or guesthouses where locks need to be installed temporarily to secure them.
Magnetic locks are generally used for interior door locks.
Anti-intrusion locks, also called locks with anti-intrusion locks, are a type of new generation lock equipped with an irreversible locking system that prevents the opening of the security door when the cylinder is pulled or removed. However, recently anti-theft locks have been equipped with a locking system, allowing the door to open even after being locked thanks to a special key provided to the master during assembly.
Closed cylinder with biometric finger recognition. It is a padlock with a cylinder fitted with a thermal scanner that can read your fingers. This is efficient because you don’t need a key to enter manually and it usually comes with a keypad that allows you to open the door with a password.
Locks with Slack technology, the newest type of lock on the market today. This lock allows you to open your door using your smartphone, PC, tablet or other electronic device.

As we recently pointed out, the mechanical lock opens with a key. In Italy, although it should be different, it is still the most locked down. Indeed, the locking systems are not all the same and are divided into different categories according to the type of machine that controls the piston.

Mechanical locks can have mapped, gear or latched locks, but in order not to get bored and confused, we will consider only two models of armored doors.

Double-Bit Locks
European cylinder lock

The double lock was the first lock for a security door. Look at your house keys – after all, that’s it! You can see double-bit keys because they consist of a long metal rod that opens at the bottom on both sides and looks like a butterfly.

In Italy, another 80% of armored doors are equipped with this type of lock and it is likely that your part also belongs to this category.

The double slot consists of two main parts:

Bolts, also known as pistons: small movable beams – from 2 to 5 for each lock – that attach the door to the supporting structure and can close it.
Weapon or lock block: is a “box” or metal body in which there is a carriage with slats, slats (slats, lock code) and a latch, there is a 45 ° pin used to close the door. The weapon is attached to the door frame and causes it to close.

Do it yourself is not the best choice in terms of safety because it increases the chances of poor quality work.

Unfortunately not: there are no locks that cannot be broken and European cylinder locks with security level 6 can be opened. The difference is in the whole time and sound that is needed to open.

Let’s take the case that you live in an apartment building. If the door of your apartment has a double lock, with a Bulgarian key, the mechanism will click in about 2 minutes, in complete silence and will not wake you or your neighbor.

However, if you have a cylinder lock with a guard, it will take half a day to break it and you will have to replace it with heavy tools such as hammers, hoses or special tools. The old woman upstairs, although deaf, hears 4 continuous sounds and immediately calls the manager to complain to prevent theft!
