What is Lock Snapping?

AS Locksmiths Worcester Blog

Lock Snapping is otherwise known as cylinder snapping and it is a common method used by burglars to gain entry into a property. They do this by breaking the lock cylinder and then further manipulating the lock to open it. Lock Snapping takes very minimal skill and can mean a thief has access to your property within 10 seconds! The types of locks affected by this are euro cylinder locks which are found on most uPVC doors. Lock Snapping can be avoided by fitting an Anti-Snap Euro Cylinder Lock such as a British Standard, 3 Star BSI TS007 cylinders.
