Lock snapping accounts for more than 90% of the burglaries we attend.

Improve your security with snap-proof locks

Anti-snap locks are an effective way of making your property in Barnsley more secure. Using proven technology, they can help keep thieves at bay.

What is lock snapping?

Locks fitted to uPVC, patio and composite doors are most vulnerable to lock snapping. The lock inside is known as a Euro cylinder and is made mainly of brass. This soft metal tends to be used because it doesn't rust, meaning it will last a long time with little maintenance.

However, with some simple tools and a little knowledge, it is possible to snap the cylinder in half. Once the exterior is removed, it's easy to access the locking part of the multi-point lock, making it possible to open the door.

Preventing lock snapping

The good news is that it is possible to fit high security anti-snap locks designed so this weakness cannot be exploited. They are also cost-effective. KeyEdge Locksmiths offers a snap-proof lock package priced at £210, which includes three Ultion locks:

  • Front door lock
  • Back door lock
  • Patio or French door lock

We will remove all your existing locks and fit the new Ultion locks for this price. If you want a price for just one lock replacement, give us a call on Barnsley at 01226 920154, and we'd be happy to give you a price.

What about lock bumping? 

Lock bumping is a technique that involves opening a euro or rim cylinder lock using a specially crafted "Yale type"  key. It makes it easy to break into homes without the need for any special equipment and, in many cases, doesn't leave any sign of forced entry. It is a perfected technique that requires knowledge and practice though. 

Although this is not a big problem, it is rising in South Yorkshire. If you would like more information on how to make your property more secure, you can contact KeyEdge Locksmiths on 01226 920154 today.
