    West Yorkshire Police Circular - Neighbourhood Policing Teams

    We have now reached the point that over 20% of House Burglaries within the Kirklees Division have been committed by the offenders snapping the Europrofile Locking Barrels on UPVC Doors.

    Unless you have recently changed your Europrofile Locking Barrels to the more secure ones such as Avocet ABS, Break Secure and Snap Safe it is likely that those fitted at your home are at risk.

    It is essential that you now consider taking steps to replace your existing Europrofiles with such as those listed above, which can be purchased on the Internet or through local locksmiths. This is particularly important on your main exit/entrance door as this cannot be further secured by Sash (Security) Jammers when you are out of the house.

    Sash (Security) Jammers as pictured below should be fitted on the inside of the UPVC Door (Top and Bottom) and these should be used at all times. Even if the Europrofile is snapped, these Jammers will keep the door secure.

    The Sash (Security) Jammer is fitted to the door frame and when turned across the actual door, prevents the door from opening. (If the door opens outwards then the Sash Jammer is fitted to the door and when turned it holds onto the door frame, thus preventing the door from opening.)
