CX5 Locks and Cylinders (High Security)

I stock CX5 deadbolts.

I stock CX5 locks and cylinders, a good choice if you need a high security restricted keyway. If you need a high quality deadbolt for less money or want to upgrade the cylinder in your Schlage deadbolt for a low price this is a great option. CX5 cylinders come in many different options. You can even retrofit Emtek locks with a CX5 cylinder. CX5 lock cylinders are available in UL437-rated versions for a little more money. They are equipped with sidebars and steel pins, making them very difficult to drill open. They use a patent-protected keyway so you won’t have to worry about unauthorized key duplication. These locks are versatile at a low price point making them ideal for rentals or office spaces. These locks can be masterkeyed for less money than a Medeco or Mul-T-Lock system.

I also sell CX5 deadbolts which are roughly equivalent to Medeco biaxial deadbolts. Cost of keys is not included. Cost of installation is not included. They cost:

CX5 is a very secure lock. See this website discussing the vulnerabilities. Note that picking this lock would be possible only for the very best lockpickers in the world and bumping/impressioning would only work if the correct blank with the correct sidebar milling was available to the attacker. CX5 is a legally protected keyway and the keyway I use is regionally uncommon.
