The advantages of the Yale Lock system are down to versatility and design

Yale Lock system Rotherham

The Yale Lock system is commonly known as a pin tumbler lock. The advantages of using the Yale Lock system makes them popular with Locksmiths and property owners alike. One of the reasons they are so popular with the Locksmith industry is that the internal cylinder can be changed without having to alter the boltwork hardware. Re-keying for the locksmith is easy as well as the internal cylinder can also easily be unscrewed. This action typically requires loosening a set screw, you can then slide the cylinder from the boltwork.

A big advantage with the Yale Lock system is that you can get the cylinders in different formats from different lock manufacturers where the same key can be used. All this allows the user the flexibility of being able to use master key systems. These master key systems offer a wide variety of different locks such as roller door locks, deadbolts and nightlatches.

The Yale lock system is commonly seen throughout the world as the most popular and the most well known lock system. A lot of this is down to the design and the flexibility of its usage. The domestic and commercial advantages of the Yale Lock are universally renowned.

The Yale Lock system is geared towards the future as well with new Yale Lock innovations that incorporate digital technology. A couple of years ago, Yale announced a residential door lock that uses Bluetooth and works wirelessly with digital keys on a smartphone. Compatible with both iOS and Android, users can simply select the key they need to open the door and hold their smartphone to the lock to open the door.
