Anti Snap Locks Fitted In Leeds


What's the problem?

Lock Snapping In Leeds and West Yorkshire Is on the increase! 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 supplied with the doors are so weak the multipoint lock can be manipulated open in under 30 seconds. Locksmiths and the police 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 quickly and easily unlocked using cheap ever day hand tools meaning no key is required to open the door. Please see the video at the bottom of the page to see lock snapping in action.
