High Security Anti-Snap & Snap-Safe Locks Southampton
Why Have Anti-Snap / Snap-Safe Locks Fitted?
Unfortunately, we are seeing a rise in burglaries in Southampton and surrounding villages. Roughly 84% of burglaries in Southampton involve the burglar gaining entry to the property using the lock-snapping method. Lock-snapping is a quick and easy way for burglars to break into your property using only a pair of pliers or mole grips. They simply snap the cylinder in a uPVC or composite door which enables them to remove the lock completely and then open the door. This whole process can be done in under 10 seconds without making much more noise than if you were opening the door with a set of keys.
Having anti-snap or snap-safe locks installed prevents burglars from snapping the lock and gaining entry to your property. The video below shows you how easy it is for a burglar to gain access to your home or business using the lock snapping method.
All the anti-snap / snap-safe locks we install in Southampton are high quality, branded locks that meet British Standards and meet TS007 standards. If you have home insurance your policy will require that you have a certain standard of lock installed on your external doors for the policy to be valid in the event of a break in. Having sub-standard locks installed may mean that your insurance company will not pay out for damages or loss of goods in the event of a break in.
