Rise In Lock Snapping In Yorkshire

A quarter of all burglaries in Yorkshire are being committed by criminals using a technique called “lock snapping”.

Since 2009, there has been a rise in the technique, which involves applying force and snapping the cylinder in two.

The technique first emerged in Bradford a couple of years ago and now accounted for more than a quarter of all burglaries across the force area.

Figures for December show that 27% of all burglaries across the county involved lock snapping on euro cylinders.

Euro cylinder locks are fitted to millions of properties, usually UPVC and other double glazed doors.

These locks are vulnerable to this type of attack and it can take between 50 seconds and two minutes to force the lock.

If you’re unsure about the standard and quality of your locks, please contact us at Precision Locksmiths for friendly, honest and free advice.

UAP+ Zero Lift Cylinders

For some time now the official Police approved scheme ‘Secured by Design’ and British Standards institute have been working to improve door security- specifically against ‘lock snapping’. New standards have recently been introduced to overcome this problem by using anti snap cylinders like UAP+ Zero Lift.

The quickest and most cost effective solution to this problem is to upgrade basic euro cylinder locks to security enhanced Anti – snap Cylinder locks – these have anti snap cuts on both sides of the cylinder. If unreasonable force is applied to one end of an Anti – Snap Cylinder it only breaks away to the snap line, but leaves the locking mechanism still inside the door. Anyone familiar with lock snapping can recognize an anti snap lock and of course this is a big deterrent to any would be burglars before they even attempt to break in.
