What is Cylinder Snapping?
House burglars have worked out ways of snapping the majority of cylinder locks on UPVC doors very quickly and easily. This then allows them to manipulate the lock mechanism and enter the property within seconds.
This can be overcome very easily with the fitting of an Anti Snap cylinder. These cylinders will not allow access to the lock mechanism if attacked and therefor not allowing forced entry to your home and its contents.
To the right you will see 2 photos of euro profile cylinders fitted to upvc doors.
The photo in the left of the picture is an Anti Snap cylinder fitted flush to the handle, so will not allow any tools to grip the lock.
The photo in the right of the picture shows you exactly what your cylinder should not look like when fitted in your door. As you can see, this will allow thieves to easily gain purchase and snap the locking cylinder.
If your cylinder protrudes like the one in the right of the picture above, you should have it changed immediately!
