Anti-snap lock package offer Doncaster

What is lock snapping?

In simple terms, the lock itself mainly consists of brass, which is a soft but non corrosive metal. Because of how they are manufactured, there is a weak point which allows the locks to be forced and snapped which then allows easy entry. This “secret” has been kept quiet but with the likes of YouTube allowing people to publish the latest “how to” video, this knowledge is no longer the secret it was.

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

The solution… our anti snap-lock package. The average house has three euro cylinders fitted to the external doors and these can be swapped for three high security and high quality Ultion anti-snap locks. The added bonus that comes with these fantastic door locks is that they also offer anti-bump, anti-pick and anti-drill protection too.

The price is £200 fitted, a fantastic price to consider for your future security. Additional locks only cost £40 each as well.
