Falcon conventional cylinders provide a high level of security and durability at an affordable price. A conventional cylinder requires some breakdown of the lock in order to be removed and are the most commonly used cylinders. Because they are manufacturer-specific to the lock and lock type, they usually cannot be exchanged for another. However, conventional cylinders can be keyed alike or master keyed so that just one key can be used for multiple locks. They are best suited for light commercial applications with a small number of users, such as retail stores, small offices and residential applications that do not require frequent cylinder changes.
