What is lock snapping?
Snapping a lock is the quickest and easiest way for a burglar to enter your home. It is quick, easy and doesn’t require a huge amount of skill.
When I first started work in the lock business, I had never changed a lock in my life, and had no concept of the quality differences within the locks available. I watched a colleague gain entry through my front door in under 10 seconds, by snapping the lock. He got in quicker than I could have unlocked the door with the key.
A snapped lock refers to the cylinder snapping, so however strong your door, it makes no difference. My door was a great colour, had re-enforced glass and looked very pretty. However, I needed to protect it.
Shocking, isn’t it?
