What is a thumbturn cylinder?
Thumbturn cylinders, also written thumb turn cylinders,
are a type of lock that allows you to easily open and close doors from
the inside. The thumbturn fits directly below the door handles or knobs
and, when the turn is rotated, it throws a deadbolt, locking the door.
The most common type is a bathroom thumbturn
lock which provides privacy and can be used in conjunction with a
bathroom deadbolt and lever on rose door handles. A euro cylinder lock
is another type. When used on the front door, it will allow the user to
lock the door on the outside using a key and a thumbturn from the
Are thumbturn locks less secure?
Many people worry that thumb turn cylinders
are less secure due to the risk of burglars reaching the turn through
the letterbox (either using their hand or wire) to grant themselves
access. However, you can easily alleviate this by installing a letterbox
protector on the inside of the door – making it impossible for thieves
to reach the thumbturn.
Often, thumbturn locks are a fire safety
requirement in shared accommodation and apartment blocks. In the event
of a fire or emergency, residents can leave faster as they don’t need to
hunt for their keys or fiddle around inserting it into the lock. They
simply use the thumbturn and evacuate quickly. Again, a secure thumb turn cylinder and letterbox protector are a must-have, at such properties, to ensure maximum protection.
