Lock snapping prevention

Hopefully you haven’t been a victim of this method of entry crime but unfortunately it is not going away in fact it its on the increase. A simple flaw in the design of standard euro cylinders means that they are defeated quickly and easily using basic tools making little noise and little skill. Leaving your doors vulnerable to attack this way. Layers of security will put them off, lock your side and back gates, use security lights and keep valuable possessions and car keys out of sight.

3 star cylinder upgrades

The best way to avoid this happening to your property is to fit upgraded locks to combat this. 3 star rated cylinders can be installed and if attacked they foil the would-be burglar in their tracks keeping them out and you and your possessions safe. Its all about ‘target hardening’ a word used a lot in the military and by the police now. Making your property a less attractive option to thieves than others, generally most thieves are opportunistic and want an easy target, they don’t want to create attention to themselves and don’t want to be caught.
