UPVC Doors – Beware Lock Snapping
Every household should check their Euro Cylinders locks in their doors. If from the outside (external) the locks stick out like the one in the picture then you are at risk of lock snapping.
Lock snapping is a procedure that enables unwanted visitors to gain access to your home very quickly with minimal noise. If you were in your living room it is unlikely you would hear someone gaining access this way.
If you find the locks internally are like this but the outside is flush against the handles then there is no need to worry. but at some stage, you should think about flush fitting locks both sides.
