Scandinavian Oval Cylinder Sizing
The standard size for both sides of a Scandinavian oval cylinder is 30mm. Some cylinders require the use of extension pieces to suit thicker doors. If your cylinder has extension pieces, you will be able to reuse these with the new cylinder.
If you have a thumb turn knob on the inside of your door, simply replace the external side of the cylinder ad reattach and reuse the thumb turn on the inside.
Depending on the type of door you have, there can be a combined door handle or separate handle and escutcheon for the cylinder. If your door handle covers over the cylinder screws on the inside, you will need to remove the inside section of the door handle for access to the fixing screws of the cylinder.
