Don't be a victim of lock snapping

Lock snapping is a method of entry where burglars apply force to the lock cylinder, rendering the lock useless. The locks most at risk of this type of attack are fitted with a Euro profile cylinder, which are found in the majority of PVC-U and composite doors installed in the last 15 years and operate in combination with a multipoint lock.

Fitting break-secure cylinders is a great defence against this.



  • Separate lines of defence to deter even the most determined attack
  • Snap-off front section, which will come away if attacked, giving the intruder less of the cylinder to grasp
  • Easy to fit

It’s important to know that your home is safe while you are out, and with official crime statistics showing that most burglars gain entry through the front (49%) or back door (41%), it’s vital to ensure your home is well protected. Scotland Yard data indicates only 5% of burglaries are solved so you’re unlikely to get your belongings back if targeted.

Fitting Break Cylinders to your doors ensures that you won't become the next crime statistic!



  • After a burglary you’re unlikely to get your items back
  • Some possessions are irreplaceable – don’t risk it!
  • Burglary for theft of vehicle keys is at an all time high
  • Insurance premiums are likely to increase after a break in.


Ask yourself…

  • Does your door lock comply with the latest home insurance standards?
  • Do you know who has a key to your front door?
  • Do you know how many keys have already been cut for your front door?
