Lock snapping

Lock Snapping In Durham Is getting more and more common. Thieves are easily exploiting a massive weak spot on most euro profile cylinders. A big selling point of UPVC doors is always the multipoint locking mechanisms and how secure they are, but what they don't tell you is that the euro cylinders are so weak the multipoint lock can be manipulated open in under 30 seconds. Locksmiths have known about this weakness for a while but now unfortunately that information is in the wrong hands and burglary's through lock snapping are getting increasingly more common around County Durham area. The lock snapping technique involves breaking the cylinder at the weakest point to expose a vital part of the locking mechanism, once this part is exposed the mechanism can be unlocked meaning no key is required to open the door and the 5 point locking system is opened in seconds.

Fortunately now there is an answer to lock snapping. Anti snap locks are now available and are getting better and better all the time. Anti snap locks have new purpose built weak points built into the cylinder so when the lock is attacked the cylinder will break on the sacrificial mark instead of at the weak point in the middle leaving the rest of the cylinder very difficult to grip. Also a lot of the newer euro cylinders are strengthened across the old weak point as well offering maximum security.

We fit anti snap locks which are British Standard approved so you can be assured you are getting maximum protection against lock snapping.we also have other high security locks depending on budget. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information or for a free no obligation quote.

Final safety tips from locksmith Durham

Now that it is nearly holiday time, day trips and much deserved time out with the family. What this means however, is that our homes are often left for longer periods of time than usual.

It seems obvious to say but we need to remember to keep our homes and businesses safe. Which during the summer months can prove a little harder when our homes get so hot (OK granted with the British weather it doesn’t last too long, but you know what we mean!)

We tend to have windows and doors open or left ajar and often these can be forgotten about when you’re all set and ready to leave. Especially if you’re packing suitcases, the kids and the pets into the car! Sometimes the last thing we think of is to go back into our homes to do a quick security check.

To help we’ve pulled together a locksmiths summer checklist to help take some of the pressure off.

Let’s start with the basics. Make sure your doors and windows are locked when you leave. Get your partner to follow you round the house so they’ve been double checked. Just in case there’s one you have accidentally missed or the kids have decided to re-open to be “helpful”.

Don’t leave keys in the backs of doors. This is mainly the case with patio doors but many people will lock doors and then leave the keys in the back of the door. Don’t. Lock the door, take them out and hide the keys somewhere safe. The same can be said for leaving window keys in sight. Make sure these are tucked away somewhere safe but somewhere you’ll remember when you come back!

Look to invest in some light timers. These can be really simple but really effective. Set them for sporadic times and also make sure that they switch off. The aim is so your home never looks unoccupied.

Tell a trusted neighbour. Let a neighbour know you’re going away and leave them a spare key if needed, it’s always good to have an extra set of eyes on your property.

Make sure those jobs you’ve been putting off for ages get done. Things like replacing broken locks, or placing new locks on side gates/doors. Even things like your garden shed, should all have good locks to help protect your belongings.

The list above is just a handful of things you can do to help keep your property safe. Of course keeping valuables out of sight, unplugging electricals etc. should also be done as standard.

One last thing to bear in mind…remember where your spare car key is! You’ll be surprised by how many phone calls we receive to help people back into their cars after their holidays.
