Lock snapping is the latest method used by burglars as it is quick and easy and needs no special tools. This technique is commonly used by burglars in the Castleford area. If you have a UPVC or composite door then the Euro cylinder (see picture on right) that locks the door has a weakness that allows it to be easily broken with freely available tools and little skill. These locks are also sometimes fitted to timber doors. The whole process takes less than one minute and makes very little noise. Once this has been done the thief simply unlocks the door and opens it using the handle. It does not matter how many hooks, bolts etc. are on your lock once the thief snaps the lock they are useless. Police in West Yorkshire have released figures showing that lock snapping is by far the most common method used by burglars.
ere is what happens when a lock is snapped. You can see how the broken pieces can be removed from the door allowing it to be unlocked and opened very easily. You can prevent this happening to you by having a locksmith fit high security anti snap or snap safe locks to your UPVC or composite door in Castleford.
The latest locks now provide a greater level of security than ever at a reasonable cost to the homeowner. These locks are known as snap safe locks or anti snap locks.
