Cypher Lock Continental Instruments
CYPHER LOCK is an Extra heavy duty
electronic push-button Access Control system that permits entry only to those who know its correct 4-digit code. This is the same system that has been very popular with goverment agencies and the military for many years. Often it was sold under the Sargent & Greenleaf brand. There are no keys to issue; no cards to buy and replace. You program the entry code in just seconds and inform only authorized personnel of the combination. And you can change the code as often as you wish.

Is the Cypherlock really a lock?
The Cypherlock is actually a heavy duty 2 part keypad system. It is not a lock. The Cypherlock name is the registered name for this product. An electric strike or a similar type of electronic lock such as the Brute lock must be added to the Cypherlock system to create a complete locking system. From our experience, the Brute lock is the most commonly used locking device used with the Cypherlock.
Outside keypad: 3 1/2 inches high x 5 1/8 inches wide x 2 9/16 inches deep
Inside control box: 10 1 1/16 inches high x 5 3/16 inches wide x 6 inches deep
