Does your door lock look like this?

IF IT DOES IT WILL TAKE A BURGLAR 30 SECONDS TO ENTER YOUR HOME!

Most Standard Euro locks are vulnerable to burglary attack by snapping of the cylinder because, once snapped, the central cam of the door cylinder comes away leaving the internal mechanism of the door lock accessable to the burglar.

All other snap resistant door cylinders try to stop the burglar snapping the cylinder.

With the forces generated using standard tools such as mole grips or claw hammer we believe it is impossible to stop cylinder snapping.

Therefore anti bump Cylinders have been designed to overcome burglary attacks by giving no access to the lock mechanism.

Secured by design Cylinders have been designed specifically in order to prevent these types of attack.

The principle of lock snapping is an easy one. Apply enough force to the cylinder and it will break across it’s weakest point. This is usually accomplished using a pair of mole grips, or a claw hammer, basically anything that can be used to physically grab the cylinder. Obviously Lock snapping leaves much more evidence of a break in than lock bumping, but ultimately the result is the same, an intruder is able to enter your home. In terms of time scale Lock Snapping is equally as quick as Bumping, taking only a few seconds to snap a cylinder.

If your Door, like many homes is a UPVC or Composite Door, you probably feel very secure in your home.
When you lift the handle and you hear all the Mechanism slot into place – it’s a good sound… it makes you feel safe.
But here’s the thing – the entire Locking Mechanism of your Door relies on one thing……the Euro Cylinder (the Lock) which holds it all together
Door Companies fit these Locks into your Door because they are cheap (some cost the companies less than a pound)

People are led to believe that these “Euro Locks” offer a good amount of Security.

Until now – Only a handful of professional Locksmiths and well researched criminals knew about these insider tactics of breaking Locks used in 90% of Doors in the UK and Europe.

But as with most things and with the help of the internet, these practises are now fast becoming common place among the criminal underground and the opportunist thief.

Now criminals are using techniques called – Lock Bumping and Lock Snapping on these Locks.
What’s worrying is – Lock Bumping keys are used legitimately by Locksmiths and therefore legally available. In the hands of thieves they can be used as master keys to open any number of Locks quickly and with minor disturbance. It can also make your insurance claim void, as there is no sign of forced entry.

Yet what is worth mentioning to you about extra security, is that when Security Locks, Security Handles, sash Jammers are fitted throughout the home, you can usually get an extra discount on your home insurance.

Bump keys will open almost any Cylinder Lock in the country and as around 90% of all homes are fitted with the Cylinder Locks chances are thieves can get into your home.

Do you know who has keys to your property? Previous tenants, friends, relatives or builders may still have duplicated keys to your home. Burglaries where there are no signs of forced entry being made are increasing!

Police, Crime Prevention and most Insurance companies strongly recommend that the Locks on all external Doors should be changed when keys go missing or when you move
