Here at Buy ABS Locks, we match the manufacturers 10-year mechanical guarantee! This means that we cover any technical fault on the cylinder lock itself. We do not cover locksmith call outs, and out guarantee will only cover product replacement. Please note that keys are not covered by the guarantee.
The 3-star rating is the highest grade for cylinder lock certification. This means that ABS is one of the best quality cylinder locks on the market according to British Standards.
Snap-Secure means that the lock itself combats snap attack by burglars wanting to snap the cylinder in order to break into your property.
Many cylinders claim to be 'snap-secure' but ABS is different in that it has a patented locking system that is triggered when the lock has been snap attacked. The locking system fires into action to create a robust barrier to entry. This blocks the intruder from getting into the property. For more information, please read here
Suiting refers to ordered cylinders that you wish to have keyed alike. For more information, please read our suiting guide.
In the event of the ABS cylinder lock being attacked, its patented design to securely lock out the burglar will take place. When this happens, you will need to contact any ABS Elite Centre and they will be able to arrange for an ABS Locksmith to come and visit your home. This will not cause any damage to your door.
In order to maintain the in-service performance of your ABS lock, please apply Graphite Powder as a dry lubricant. Please only apply at 12-month intervals only. Do not use WD40 or 3-in-1 oil.
Please note that we are not an emergency locksmith. By fitting the locks yourself, we are not liable for any faults due to improperly fitting the cylinder locks.
