Euro Cylinder Lock Snapping - The Problem

Burglars have discovered what the locksmith and hardware industry have known for years. It doesn't matter how many hook or dead bolts you have on your door, the weak point is the cylinder lock.

Due to inherent weakpoints in the door cylinder lock, having little material to give robust strength and the screw fixing enhancing this weakness, using simple tools, a burglar can "snap" the cylinder and gain access to the door mechanism and open the door - in seconds! 

 

 

The vast majority of doors in the UK & Ireland could have these vulnerable locks.

Many lock manufacturers have introduced locks with anti-snap features but most of these do not actually work against lock snapping attacks.

 

So how do you stop this happening to you?
