Why Install Anti-Snap Locks?

Lock Snapping is on the rise in Leeds, West Yorkshire

In the Leeds, Wakefield and Bradford area lock snapping is a huge issue, and unfortunately it's getting worse! Practically every burglary now commited within West Yorkshire where access has been gained unlawfully is through snapping the lock due to Anti - Snap Locks not been installed.

What are Euro Cylinder Locks?

Euro cylinder locks can be found on all Upvc doors and also some composite, wood, sliding patio and aluminium doors. They are made mainly of brass which is non corrosive. This helps because little or no maintenance will ever be needed. But brass is soft and within the structure of the lock there is a weakened area. With a little force and knowledge this can be exposed and the lock pulled out and the locking mechanism can then be opened. Social media has not helped this secret and videos on how to do this can frequently be found on YouTube!

How do you know if your lock is Anti - Snap or not? 

The simple answer is, you don't! Brand new properties being built today are not guaranteed to have anti-snap locks fitted. There is no obligation or insurance requirement for anti-snap locks to be installed. Good locksmiths will be able to advise if they are but to be certain, the lock itself will need to be taken out and examined to be absolutely sure.
