What is Lock Snapping?
Lock snapping is a very common method used by burglars to break into property that has a euro cylinder (e.g. almost all properties that have UPVC doors, although a significant number of composite & aluminium doors use them too, and they’re often used in commercial as well as domestic environments). Lock snapping is a burglary method which necessitates snapping a particular type of lock cylinder in two by applying the correct amount of force and then removing the outside part of the lock to expose the locking mechanism itself. Once the locking mechanism has been exposed, it is vulnerable to manipulating which allows the door to be unlocked using basic household tools.

It started in England but has spread all over the UK and we have attended a lot up here in Glasgow and surrounding areas. No need to panic as there is a simple solution to this by changing your existing cylinders to snap resistant British Standard, TS007 Kite Marked 3* Euro Cylinder locks which provide a much higher level of security and are not susceptible to lock snapping.
