Packed full of security features making it the UK's highest accredited lock. Burglars attack locks from outside the home - so we made sure we designed ABS with all the right features on the external side of the lock. Locks that have anti-snap features on both sides are often a compromise on safety and security. ABS DOES IT'S JOB - IT SECURES YOUR HOME, AND EVEN WHEN IT HAS BEEN ATTACKED YOU CAN STILL OPEN AND CLOSE THE DOOR FROM THE INSIDE.
16 anti-drill pins throughout the cylinder The ABS lock is packed full of anti-drill pins to totally secure the cylinder against drilling. 10 anti-drill pins within the cylinder plug and 6 within the barrel - located before and after the snap line for maximum defence.
Unique patented snap secure technology
The clever locking system of the Avocet ABS diamond grade cylinder knows when it has been attacked and fires into action to create a robust barrier to entry. The security clutch system and robust locking pin is hidden deep within a solid Molybdenum cam which is 20% stronger than steel for ultimate resistance to a lock snapping attack and snap/twist manipulation. This unique patented locking cam is proven to secure in the real world. Effectively stopping burglars from getting into homes whilst making sure you can still open and close your door from the inside. Some locks feature snap features on the inside and outside - this might seem like a good idea, But what if both sides are broken when attacked - How do you get your door open? ABS makes sure that you can still open and close your door from the inside after it has been attacked.
Advanced multi-pin system
Standard pin systems on most locks are vulnerable to a method of attack known as lock bumping. ABS has a pin-within-pin system which means that the pins cannot be bumped. And for further additional defence ABS has an additonal magnetic pin for ultimate security.
