Kinetica Child Safe Thumb Turn 3* Kitemarked Euro Cylinder

Features Include:

The 3* Kitemarked thumb turn euro cylinder is available in satin nickel, polished brass and polished chrome. We believe that the market really wants a full finish euro cylinder. We know that the dual colour cylinders save stock space, but we don’t personally think that a polished brass handle looks good with a silver/chrome cylinder that has a brass plug.

The Kinetica 3* Kitemarked thumb turn euro cylinder is a combination of the expertise from UAP and Fullex. The 3* cylinder market has been growing over the last 12 months or so with fabricators understanding the consumer need for greater door security without having to upgrade handles or add extra security devices. Fullex and UAP have worked together to try and develop the best value for money 3* Kitemarked euro cylinder on the market.

Part of the UAP Cylinder Registration Scheme

The cylinder comes with a key fob which includes a serial number. Customers can register the cylinder on our website to activate their guarantee. What's more, customers will also have access to 'My Keys.' This allows the customer to keep a record of their key number and an image, so if they ever lost all of their keys, they can log in to the website and simply take the key number and image to a key cutter to get cut. This will save them the expense of having to replace their cylinder!

The Kinetica 3* Kitemarked thumb turn euro cylinder utilises UAP’s patented timing pin system, and at the same time combines the Fullex anti-snap solution in a very effective product - financially making huge sense for the fabricator.


The Kinetica thumb turn cylinder uses a standard keyway which not only means that replacement keys can be readily cut, avoiding a spend of over £20 a time. This also means UAP timing pins can be used which stop cylinder entrapment! Cylinder entrapment is the phenomenon that once attacked, the cylinder cannot be opened on the inside of property thereby causing the occupant the risk of being trapped.


The KINETICA® Push to Turn Lock (P2T™) protects against the most common forms of burglary. It also offers the unique KINETICA CHILDSAFE™ feature to stop your children easily opening the lock and the door. The KINETICA® P2T™ System was inspired by the very effective safety cap on medicine bottles.

“Push the knob in and turn”

It also means that if a strap is put over the thumb turn from the outside, the thumb turn will just spin and not engage and open! It can be re-pinned as a keyed alike or even master suite range. And uniquely the Kinetica cylinder can even be keyed to the UAP+ 1* cylinder range. If you want for example a 3* communal entry door cylinder, and then a whole series of 1* cylinders on the house doors, we can do it. Likewise if you want a 3* cylinder keyed to a UAP rim cylinder, again we can do it - the options are virtually limitless! Please Note - 70mm 30T-10-30 Kinetica cylinders cannot be keyed alike to a bigger size Kinetica cylinder due to the central sacrificial cut line. However they can be keyed alike to UAP+ 1* cylinders and TL cylinders with a 25mm external side (30mm side if you measure X/X). 80mm+ size Kinetica cylinders can all be keyed alike together, and can key alike to UAP+ 1* cylinders and TL cylinders if it does not have a 25mm external side. The 3* Kitemarked thumb turn euro cylinder is available in satin nickel, polished brass and polished chrome. We believe that the market really wants a full finish euro cylinder. We know that the dual colour cylinders save stock space, but we don’t personally think that a polished brass handle looks good with a silver/chrome cylinder that has a brass plug. The industry has spent years producing and refining colour matched door furniture, and we really don’t think people want to throw that out of the window just to save some shelf space!

3 Star Solution 3-stars

If you are looking 3* security solution for PAS24 doors then you need to look no further. The Kinetica thumb turn euro cylinder is 3 star rated, meaning that it can be fitted to PAS24 doors without the need for 2* handles!

Please note: Doors with Pull Handles - we do not recommend using Kinetica or any 3* cylinder on Doors with fixed pull handles. We recommend using our ZL 1 star cylinder with our 2 star high security escutcheon.

Technical Info:

The cylinder has a sacrificial cut line, so when force is applied to the end,
the cylinder will break away to the sacrificial cut line only, leaving the remaining cylinder operational and the locking mechanism intact.

The cylinder has a unique and patented anti-bump system which does not use trap pins. This system makes the turning of the cylinder key extra smooth.

4 x hardened steel anti-drill pins are in each side of the cylinder. Plus all moving pins are nickel plated hardened steel 50 HRC minimum.

Minimum of 3 anti-pick pins in each side of the cylinder makes it extremely difficult for a common burglar to pick the cylinder.

testing icon

At UAP we are constantly striving to improve on the products we already supply as well as develop new, pioneering ranges and practical product solutions.

With an in house testing centre and product developer, each stage of the development process is thorough, from the initial design right down to the final product. In house 3D printing technology allows for further and more precise advancement of our products which are then expertly manufactured and put through stringent testing conditions using in house test equipment – ensuring all products are designed to the highest standards:

Cylinder Cycle Machine

This sophisticated machine tests the rotational operation of cylinder locks, ensuring a lock will continue to function even after being used in thousands of openings. It replicates the action of a key being inserted into the cylinder and it being turned, just as a product would be operated when fitted into a door. The product is tested to 100,000 repetitions to ensure it continues to function even after thousands of turns. It allows UAP to perform tests in accordance with BS EN 1303:2015 standards.

Cylinder Snapping Test

In accordance with PAS24, the test challenges the security features of a cylinder. An attempt is made to gain access through the cylinder by defeating its protective features, and then applying twisting or bending force to snap the cylinder and access its mechanism. Typically, the handle will first be ripped off, and then mole grips are used to try and make a larger hole around the cylinder. The cylinder is then snapped and attempts are made to turn the cam. A tester has 3 minutes in total to remove all protective hardware and defeat the cylinder, and only certain tools can be used if it cannot be done in this time then the cylinder will pass.

 Salt Spray Test

This machine tests the corrosion resistance of the door locks. The salt spray cabinet produces a corrosive environment, by releasing a dense saline fog into the chamber which the door locks are exposed to. This creates an accelerated corrosion of the door lock and allows us to test how well the lock would stand up in harsher environments.

All Weather Machine

When placed in the all-weather machine, the door locks are subjected to conditions including high UV exposure using a Xenon Arc Lamp which will accelerate UV degradation and measure how well a door lock can last in extreme conditions. Other conditions such as rain and extreme heat can be generated by the machine to expose the door lock to all kinds of environments. This allows us to continually improve the door locks and make them so they last longer in all kinds of different environments.
