Anti-snap door lock package deal

Why you must upgrade your door locks

Lock-snapping incidents are rising in Doncaster. Everyone with euro-cylinder locks must consider upgrading their locks. The Doncaster Free Press website has reported on the surge in ‘snap lock ’ burglaries, underlining the situation’s urgency. The first time I encountered lock snapping was in 2007, and it has since escalated year after year.

If you are still deciding what type of locks you have, please call us, and we will offer the best possible advice. One good, clear sign is if you can see three stars or diamonds on the front of the lock. Another would be if the key is horizontal, not vertical, and resembles a car key. An experienced locksmith can tell if your locks are the vulnerable type.

What is lock snapping?

In simple terms, the lock itself consists of brass, a soft but noncorrosive metal. Due to their manufacturing, the locks have a weak point, making it possible to force and snap them for easy entry. Manufacturers have kept this “secret” quiet. However, YouTube allows people to publish the latest “how-to” videos, so this knowledge is no longer a secret.

What’s included in our anti-snap door lock deal

The solution is our anti-snap lock package. The average house has three euro cylinders on its external doors. You can swap these for three high-quality Ultion anti-snap locks. These fantastic door locks have a bonus. They also offer anti-bump, anti-pick, and anti-drill protection.

The price is £210 fitted, a fantastic price to consider for future security. Extra locks only cost £50 each. When more than one key is required, additional keys can be cut at discounted prices. If you need less than three locks, call for a price.
