Who wants a less secure door?

The first thing you want from a door is to keep the bad guys out. Rather than rely upon badges and star accreditation’s influenced by lock manufacturers and carried out in test centres these films show you a real life door, on a real life home, with an increasingly real life entry method.
They show how weak your doors are in real life.

Snap tested
Test pause allowed
Extended choice of tools allowed
Tested by Master Locksmith Association
Tester is allowed to attack lock surround

Ultion is still snap secure with the key in the inside of the lock

Its something we all do, we lock the door and leave the key in the lock on the inside. Even with the most snap secure locks leaving the key in the lock can completely remove any snap protection you thought you had.
If an intruder burgles your home by
snapping Ultion we pay you £1000

73% of burglaries are through the door

Statistic from the Office of National Statistics

This is one of those odd facts. Many UK homes have spent £100’s even £1,000’s on an alarm that will tell everyone when an intruder is inside your home.
Yet the lock on their door that physically stops them getting in probably cost £3.

Dont buy a door with instant access locks

…But what‘s the point if it can be disabled in a few seconds via an inadequate cylinder lock
Choose a tested lock that truly protects you and your home

Myth Busting

Locks with kite marks or a star have definitely been snap tested
Answer: NO
It is possible to get a T007 1 star accredited lock and even a kite mark without having to be tested for snap protection.
The snap tested lock is still protecting me even if the key is on the inside of the door.
Answer: NO
All tests are carried out on the basis of the key not being on the inside of the lock. Some high security cylinders offer no snap protection if the key is in the lock on the inside.
Locks with 3 stars have been through the most rigorous test.
Answer: NO
There are many locks with 3 stars but there is much harder test by Master Locksmith Association called Sold Secure Diamond 312. Very few locks with 3 star achieve this standard.
Any lock with a sacrificial section will protect from lock snapping
Answer: NO
Whilst sacrificial sections are one form of defense to a snapping attack many ’anti-snap‘ locks can be snapped in the centre and not on the sacrificial element as designed.
My door is secure because it has an expensive multipoint lock
Answer: Not necessarily
Strong multi-point locks are necessary and will prevent a burglar from trying to ram the door open, but burglars generally don‘t try this. They will try to disable the multipoint lock by breaking the cheap cylinder lock.
Lock snapping is a regional attack method
Answer: NO
Because this entry method is so quick, easy and quiet on doors with cheap cylinder locks burglars all over the country have now adopted this as their preferred entry method.
