What are the advantages of fitting Anti-snap or Snap Safe Euro Cylinders to your property?
This is a question more and more people are asking these days, mainly due to a few programmes that were recently shown on BBC Televisions ”The One Show”. It highlighted the fact that normal Euro Cylinders, that are generally fitted to UPVC/Composite doors can be vulnerable to attack from thieves targeting a quick entry to your property.
The fact that some of the new cylinders are referred to as anti-snap is a bit misleading, the reason for this is that they are actually designed to snap in a pre-determined place, so the term snap safe cylinder is more apt, let me explain more, in the standard cylinders they could with the correct knowledge be snapped in the middle of the cylinder thus allowing would be thieves easy access to the internal workings of you lock.
The idea of the snap safe and anti snap cylinders is that if someone attacks them they actually snap within the first part of the cylinder, leaving half of it still in place in the door, this means that the thief cannot get to the mechanism in the actual lock. However upon you returning home with your house keys, you can still insert your key into the broken lock to access your house in the usual way, the lock of course will need replacing, but it will have prevented a potentially very costly burglary, for more information about the best Anti-Snap or Snap Safe Euro Cylinders visit our website www.discountlocks.co.uk
