The UAP+ cylinder is the best choice for inexpensive home security installation. Created in accordance with the British Standards Kitemark, and also awarded the “Secured by Design” approval by the Association of Police Officers, the high quality 6 pin double Kitemarked euro cylinder can be fitted to any external door in order to ward off criminals that attempt to use the most popular break-in methods.

Part of the UAP Cylinder Guarantee Scheme


We offer up to a £5,000 cylinder guarantee on our Kinetica and UAP+ cylinders. The anti-burglar guarantee means that if a home gets broken into via the lock, and the homeowner has a UAP 3* security combination installed, in the event that their insurance company won’t pay out – UAP will consider a limited liability claim. Please see the brochures and tech sheets section for the terms and conditions of the guarantee, and how to claim.

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 cylinders have been tested to EN1303:2005, and are also 1 hour fire resistant! Each cylinder is packed full of security features, and is part of UAP’s super smooth cylinders using the Chris Belcher designed anti-bump timing pin system. This very clever system uses nickel plated hardened steel key pins and driver pins, which gives the anti-drill feature we wanted to incorporate. The Patented timing pins are designed to interrupt the timing of the pins when bumped, and it is highly effective. And because we use special pins rather than trap pins, we do not have a high expense to get this anti-bump feature! The timing pins have inbuilt anti-picks, and mushroom driver pins, which makes them highly effective against picking.

The cylinders also have a sacrificial cut line on them. If force is applied to the end of the cylinder in an attempt to break the cylinder to gain access, on standard cylinders, the weakest part of the cylinder is the screw hole which is in the centre of the cylinder (as there is less metal here). When force is applied, the cylinder will break away at this screw hole, making it very easy to manipulate the cylinder into opening. On the UAP Double Kitemarked Euro Cylinder, the cylinder will break away to the sacrificial cut line only, leaving the locking mechanism intact. If the cylinder is broken at this sacrificial cut line, the last 2 pins in the chamber remain in the cylinder, meaning that the cylinder can still be locks and unlocked with the key.

The thumb turn is a special ‘D’ shape. This has been design to make it easier to operate, with better grip and easier turning. This is therefore ideal for people who are elderly, have arthritis or have limited hand movement.

We have in-house locksmiths which offer you the option to have keyed alike cylinders, or create customised and complex mastersuite systems.

Please Note – Cylinders with an external 25mm side (30mm side if you measure X/X) cannot be keyed alike to a bigger size cylinder which does not have an external 25mm side due to the pin spacing. For example, a 25T-10-25 cylinder cannot be keyed alike to a 30T-10-30 cylinder. However a 25T-10-25 cylinder can be keyed alike to a 25-10-65T cylinder.

3 Star Solution

The cylinders are ideal to be combined with the UAP 2* Kitemarked high security door handles. Combining the UAP 2* security door handle with the UAP 1* cylinders will give you a professionally looking 3* security solution for PAS24 doors. We have also developed a specially sized 30/35 (65mm) cylinder which is the perfect size cylinder to use on 44mm door blanks with the UAP high security door handles!


Alternatively you can combine the UAP+ 1* cylinder with our 2* high security escutcheons:
