A well-known method of entry by buglers or thieves to most homes or business premises is to snap the lock. Therefore, to prevent this, it is necessary to install an anti-snap lock. The bulk of burglaries take place through a door at the rear of a property, or occasionally the front door.
Although the multi-point locking points on your composite or UPVC doors are essential security features, it’s necessary to realise that they are all operated by the euro cylinder.
Euro cylinders are at risk to Lock Snapping: if an inferior cylinder is compromised, all the other locking points are rendered useless since the cylinder is the weakest point.
Over time, burglars have attacked cylinders successfully in many ways, including picking, bumping, and drilling. Cylinder snapping is the most popular form of attack and the easiest for the burglar.
What is Cylinder Snapping?
Cylinder snapping is a method which enables burglars to enter your business premises or home within few seconds by applying force to the cylinder to break it, and then tampering with the locking mechanism, which is now revealed.
It does not need any special tools or skills and can leave your door at risk.
Protect Yourself against Lock Snapping
Installation of a high-security cylinder is the best solution to preventing a cylinder attack. The door will remain secure even if the front part of the lock is broken off, as the middle part of an anti-snap lock act as a hindrance to any tampering with the lock mechanism itself.
