Lock Snapping – The Euro Cylinder Lock Vulnerability

February 21, 2012 | posted in: Gardinia's Blog | by


Figures for December 2011 show that 27% of all burglaries across the county involved lock snapping on euro cylinders. Euro cylinder locks are fitted to millions of properties throughout the United Kingdom.

Gardinia started fitting Anti Snap, Anti Bump cylinders as standard in August 2008, if your door was installed before than you will need a lock upgrade to ensure your door is secure and not vulnerable to lock snapping.

We have uploaded a video created by the BBC to our YouTube channel, we recommend watching this to see just how insecure older locks have become in recent years.

If you feel your lock could be vulnerable contact us on 01484 542 912. We are always happy to advise on upgrades to improve your home security.
