Lock Snapping

Lock Snapping is a method where a burglar can gain access through your front or back door within 60 seconds, by using a very simple technique to smash the door handle and then break the cylinder in two.


For some time now the official Police approved scheme 'Secured by Design' and British Standards Institute have been working to improve door security - specially against Lock Snapping. New standards have recently been introduced to overcome this problem by using Anti-Snap Cylinders.

The quickest and most cost effective solution to this problem is to upgrade basic euro cylinder locks to security enhanced Anti-Snap Cylinder locks - these have anti-snap cuts on both sides of the cylinder. If unreasonable force is applied to one end of an Anti-Snap Cylinder, it only breaks away to the anti-snap line, but leaves the locking mechanism still inside the door. Anybody familiar with Lock Snapping can recognise an anti-snap lock and of course this is a big deterrent to any would be burglars before they even attempt to break in.

British Kitemark approved + Zero Lift Cylinder is one of the most popular security cylinders available, offering good security at an affordable price.
