6 Ways Locksafe Locksmiths Liverpool Can Help Prevent Lock Snapping and Keep You Safe

6 Ways Locksafe Locksmiths Liverpool Can Help Prevent Lock Snapping and Keep You Safe

What is Lock Snapping and How Can Locksafe Locksmiths Liverpool Help You Prevent it Happening.

Here at Locksafe Locksmiths Liverpool we have seen an increase in lock snapping this is a burglary technique primarily used against euro cylinder locks, which are commonly found in UPVC and composite doors, particularly in the UK.

In lock snapping, the intruder applies force to the lock cylinder, typically using simple tools like pliers or a hammer, causing it to break. Once the cylinder is snapped, the intruder can manipulate the lock mechanism to gain entry to the property.

Here at Locksafe Locksmiths Liverpool we offer a free security check to see if your current locks are to the required standard.

To prevent lock snapping and enhance the security of your home, Locksafe Locksmiths Liverpool advise you to take several measures:

  1. Upgrade to Anti-Snap Locks: Install anti-snap locks that are specifically designed to resist snapping attacks. These locks have sacrificial sections that are engineered to break away if force is applied, but they break at a point that still leaves the lock mechanism intact and secure, preventing the intruder from bypassing the lock. Here at Locksafe Locksmiths Liverpool offer a supply and fit service, take look at all our services we offer here.
  2. Choose High-Security Locks: Opt for high-security locks that meet British Standards (BS 3621 or TS 007) or other relevant standards in your region. These locks are typically more resistant to picking, drilling, and other forms of attack, in addition to being designed to resist snapping. You can find out more about British Standard here.
  3. Install Security Handles: Consider installing security handles or guards that can help protect the cylinder from being accessed by burglars. These handles can add an extra layer of defense against snapping attacks.
  4. Use Additional Security Devices: Supplement your door security with additional devices such as door chains, door viewers (peepholes), and security cameras. These devices can help deter burglars and provide additional security measures.
  5. Secure Your Doors and Windows: Ensure that all doors and windows are securely locked, especially when leaving your home unattended. Use deadbolts, multi-point locking systems, or additional locking mechanisms for added security to give you peace of mind and not allow a potential burglar easy access.
