SDCC launch scheme to provide free front door locks


Does your front door have a Euro Profile Cylinder like the one pictured above? If yes, you’re invited to apply to have your existing Front Door European Profile Lock replaced with a high security cylinder lock free of charge through SDCC.

Who can apply:

The Home Security Scheme is specifically for residents of SDCC aged 55 plus. It is also available to any residents who may be vulnerable or living alone. Applicants must be living in privately owned accommodation.

This scheme is not open to people living in rented accommodation (private or social). Only one lock will be available per household.

What are the benefits of high security cylinder locks:

The locks that will be installed under this scheme make it virtually impossible for an intruder to bypass.

Locks are:

  • Anti-Snap
  • Anti-drill
  • Anti-pick
  • Anti-bump

How to apply:

Please apply by downloading and completing the word version of the form or using the online form.

Completed forms can be submitted any of the following ways:

  • Online (NOTE – you should receive a confirmation email to confirm that your online application has been received. If you do not receive this confirmation, it means that your application has not been received and it should be re-submitted.)
  • by email to [email protected]
  • by post to Community Services Department, South Dublin County Council, County Hall, Tallaght, Dublin 24, D24 YNNS

You must include a contact phone number.

There is a limited number of locks available. These locks will be allocated on a first come first served basis.  A list of successful applicants will be submitted to Crothers Security.  They will contact you to make arrangements to fit the lock if your application is deemed suitable. Not all doors are suitable for replacement locks.

Crothers Security will have the final say on whether a lock can be replaced or not.

SDCC or Crothers Security cannot accept any liability for damage to any doors during this replacement process. Any issues with the lock mechanism will be highlighted at the time and while the cylinders replaced will be covered by a 12 month warranty* by Crothers Security this does not include the handle or lock mechanism.

For any queries you can contact the above email address of telephone 01-4149270

The closing date for receipt of fully completed application forms is Friday 9th June at 4pm.
