How Safe Is Your Home?

what are anti snap cylinder locksDoor cylinder snapping & bumping is on the rise.

The type of lock found in 90% pvcu and upvc doors is called a Euro cylinder lock.

Unfortunately these types of lock have been found to have a design fault. The design fault is a weakness in the centre of the cylinder. There is little material to give robust strength and this is not helped by the screw fixings which enhance this weakness. Due to this inherent weak point, a burglar can ” snap” a standard door cylinder in less than 30 seconds using simple tools and gain access to a property.

What is the problem with standard locks?

Burglars have discovered it does not matter how many hooks or dead bolts you have on your door, if you have the original cylinder lock the weak point is the cylinder lock. This is what the intruders will target to gain entry.

So how can i secure my door?

One of the best ways to make it harder for the burglar to get in is by fitting a anti snap cylinder. We can help with this.

We are always pleased to offer advice and guidance, without obligation on any aspect of your properties security, help you find the best door lock and provide replacement locks if necessary.
