What are anti snap locks?
Anti snap locks are cylinders for locks which are designed to be resistant to a method of lock breaking called ‘lock snapping’. Lock snapping has become a common means of breaking and entering houses.
Lock snapping is a method used to break lock cylinders. It is especially common on euro cylinder locks, which have been installed in many uPVC doors in Britain in the last two decades. In simple terms, lock snapping works by using low tech tools to break the cylinder open. By snapping the lock cylinder, thieves can access the mechanism inside the lock to open the door. This can make uPVC doors fitted with this type of lock vulnerable. Even with a multipoint lock, if the cylinder is vulnerable, the whole lock can be opened.
Anti snap locks are designed to replace these vulnerable cylinders. Although models vary, they are produced on similar principles. One feature is that the front section of the cylinder is designed to break away, so that if thieves try lock snapping on anti snap locks, they will simply break off the front part of the cylinder without making the internal mechanism vulnerable. The mechanism is also resistant to being gripped by tools from outside.
If anti snap locks are attacked and damaged, the inside of the door can still be opened with a key. This means that having the damaged lock repaired is a quick and low cost process.
Why fit anti snap locks?
With anti snap locks, you can have piece of mind that your property is not vulnerable to a common technique that many thieves use to break into properties. This means that it is far less likely that you will return home to find your property burgled and items of monetary or sentimental value missing.
Fitting anti snap locks is a cost effective, simple process.
