Burglars Use Cylinder/Barrel Lock Snapping To Break Into Homes In Your Area

sleeping peacefullyOne of the common methods used by intruders breaking into properties throughout the UK is lock barrel snapping, also known as “lock attack”.

Sutton Coldfield and the West Midlands are no exceptions.  In fact parts of Sutton Coldfield and Erdington have been named in the top 20 burglary hotspots in a recent survey commissioned by MoneySupermarket, with details published in the Sutton Observer.

We regularly attend break-in repairs and it is always a sombre occasion.  Nobody should have to suffer arriving home or waking up to find that they have been burgled.

By fitting our anti pick, anti bump and anti snap cylinders to your main doors and garages you can greatly increase your chances of defeating even the most determined burglar.

Protect Your Home

Many standard locks on doors, conservatories, windows etc. can be damaged in such a way as to leave the locking mechanism exposed.  However, anti-snap locks are deliberately designed to break at a certain point which keeps the locking mechanism itself protected and renders the attempt to damage the barrel useless to the would-be burglar.

Upgrading your locks can involve the fitting of anti-picking, anti-drilling, anti bump and anti snap counter-burglar measures which, together with high security door handles, help to counter the three most common methods adopted by burglars when trying to gain entry to your home.
