M&C Condor achieves Sold Secure Diamond

* condor-full-brass-cylinder.jpgM&C have announced that their Condor cylinder has achieved Sold Secure Diamond certification.

All of their cylinders were already certified to the SKG 3 star standard, but differences between the Dutch and British standards meant that they had to add an anti-snap element to existing cylinders for the UK market.

Condor, like all of M&C's cylinders, uses their Modulock system, which allows locksmiths to resize, make thumbturns and even keyed alike sets on the door without re-pinning. The anti-snap function is achieved with the addition of an relocker to any existing cylinder. This allows for a keyed alike system that includes both 1* and 3* equivalents to be put together in a few minutes on-site.
