    Hi.

    Am looking to change a lock for secuity purposes. It's a commercial building where the encumbants have no idea who has a key!

    The lock is an Ingersol Classic nightlatch. The replacement cylinders are about £70!
    Can I just use any brand of cylinder and replace the plate the secures the cylinder?

    No. A normal rim cylinder will not be compatible with the hole that the Ingersoll SC71 left.
    The answer is to purchase a conversion kit. Available from Souber tools, do a google search for Ingersoll Conversion Kit.
    The replacement of the Ingersoll cylinder is not your only cost implication, the cost of the keys is possibly going to be prohibitive.
