Lock snapping is on the rise.
Your home may not be as protected as you think.
Nearly all homes fitted with Upvc or composite doors have also been fitted with standard cylinder locks which have a weak point in the centre of the lock. This allows the lock to be broken and once broken the locking mechanism can be accessed and the door opened quite easily.
Locksmiths and the police have known about this for a long time and it was not widespread problem; however this knowledge has now found its way into mainstream news and unfortunately thieves are taking advantage of this information.
This is fast becoming a problem across the UK, and fortunately lock manufacturers are developing much more secure cylinders that cannot be snapped, therefore leaving your home much more secure. Thieves will not even attempt to break into a home with an anti-snap lock.
