Your home may not be as protected as you think 

Unfortunately nearly all homes fitted with uPVC or composite doors have also been fitted with standard eurocylinder locks which are flawed due to a weak point in the centre of the lock. This allows the lock to be easily broken and once broken the locking mechanism can be accessed and the door opened quite easily. Locksmiths and the police have known about this for a long time and it wasn't such a problem, however this knowledge has now found its way into mainstream news and unfortunately thieves are taking advantage of this. Even more worryingly is that thieves are using this method to break into peoples homes while they sleep to steal car keys, as modern cars cannot be 'hot wired' like they used to be due to microchips in the car keys. This is fast becoming an epidemic across the UK and Europe but fortunately the lock manufacturers are fighting back by developing much more secure cylinders that cannot be snapped, therefore leaving your home much more secure. Thieves will not even attempt to break in when they see that your home is fitted with an anti snap lock as they know their efforts will be futile. 

We can help give you peace of mind
