Anti Snap Locks Fitted In Leeds
Lock Snapping In Leeds and West Yorkshire Is getting more and more common. Thieves are easily exploiting a massive weak spot on euro profile cylinders which are fitted to 99% of all UPVC doors with just a couple of cheap hand tools. A big selling point of UPVC doors is always the multipoint locking mechanisms and how secure they are, but what they don't tell you is that the euro cylinders are so week the multipoint lock can be manipulated open in under 30 seconds. Locksmiths have known about this weakness for a while but now unfortunately that information is in the wrong hands and burglary's through lock snapping are getting increasingly more common around Leeds and West Yorkshire. The lock snapping technique involves breaking the cylinder at the weakest point to expose a vital part of the locking mechanism, once this part is exposed the mechanism can be unlocked meaning no key is required to open the door.
Fortunately now there a answer to lock snapping. Anti snap locks are now available and are getting better and better all the time. Anti snap locks have new purpose built weak points built into the cylinder so when the lock is attacked the cylinder will break on the sacrificial mark instead of at the weak point in the middle leaving the rest of the cylinder very difficult to grip. Also a lot of the newer euro cylinders are strengthened across the old weak point as well offering maximum security.
