Lock security is the most crucial aspect of any commercial or domestic property. Whether you are keeping your family or business safe, keeping your locks up-to-date will help.
Traditional lock devices are simple and straightforward, which means it is just as easy to break them. Most burglars use the technique of lock snapping. Lock snapping is the process of snapping a lock simply. Using the correct tools, an easy to locate segment along the lock cylinder has pressure applied to it. Once pressure has been applied; it breaks into two separate pieces.
When force is applied, the outer case will break. Breaking the outer casing will leave all the mechanisms exposed to tampering. Once this is all done in a matter of a minute, the burglar can tamper with the lock. Your lock can be tampered with using everyday household items, making it a simple process for a burglar to unlock your door.
The team at Lockman247 supplies and fits industry-leading anti-snap locks. Our anti-snap locks will be the ideal security measure on your commercial or domestic property, and they will minimise the chances of a burglar gaining entry.
So what is an anti-snap lock?
This type of lock remains high security and uses specialised lock cylinders designed with the prevention of lock-snapping in mind. A snap line lies in the middle of the two cylinders this snap line aims to prevent the breaking of the cylinder into two sections. If extreme force is applied to the inside or outside lock cylinder; the anti-snap line will break. Having the anti-snap line break prevents the centre of the cylinder breaking into two parts. The lock mechanism will remain intact, and it will prevent the burglar from breaking the lock and gaining entry into your property.
Anti-snap locks are the perfect security measure against the blowtorch technique. The blowtorch technique is where a burglar uses a blowtorch to melt the door and expose the mechanism once it is vulnerable, the lock is snapped. With Lockman247’s anti-snap locks, this technique will not work due to the anti-snap line.
Anti-snap locks are approved by the Lockman team.
Our employees try and test the locks to ensure they are of high quality. If the lock is the correct size and installed correctly, anti-snap locks can not be broken in this way. The team at Lockman247 are all trained and experienced, so we ensure that the correct lock will be fitted.
During the Covid-19 lockdown, many homeowners and businesses owners have used the time to improve their homes but not many will think about the locks that are designed to keep us safe, we use a key to lock the door and just assume its safe when in reality you could be a target.
It only takes a trained locksmith a couple of moments to check your locks for you to see what time you have installed so it may be worth having a security check done on your home or business premises just for peace of mind.
