About Lock Snapping
Lock snapping in principle is very easy and accounts for more than 20% of burglaries in some parts of the country. Apply enough force to the cylinder and it will break at it’s weakest point, this can usually be done by using tools found in most households tool kits. The damage caused is a lot more evident than bumping, but the time it takes for an intruder is roughly the same and can be done in seconds.
Lock snapping only targets the cylinder, so in reality it does not really matter how many shoot pins, anti lift bars, rollers and dead bolts you have on your door. This is due to the fact that all these are operated by your mechanism and once the cylinder has been removed the mechanism can be easily manipulated using a screw driver or a small piece of wire.
There are many cylinders on the market that have been designed to be anti bump, however, very few manufactures have addressed the ever increasing snapping of cylinders. Thieves are becoming more aware of the ability to easily snap a cylinder, and are choosing to exploit this method of entry. By fitting an anti bump and anti snap cylinder you are significantly increasing the security of your family home or place of work by removing the weak point in your security.
