Anti-snap cylinders

Standard euro profile cylinder on the market are vulnerable to burglary attack by snapping of the cylinder,using standard tools such as mole grips or a claw hammer this is happening in Southend,   once snapped, the cylinder comes away leaving the internal mechanism of the door accessible to the burglar.  it is virtually impossible to stop cylinder snapping. Therefore anti snap cylinders have been designed to overcome burglary attacks by not giving access to the lock mechanism. If the door is attacked, the cylinder snaps from the outside, the cam is retained solidly in position which blocks access to the internal mechanism of the door lock. The snap secure cylinder lock keeps the burglar out of your property in Southend and in most instances it can still be operated internally after the outside part of the anti snap cylinder has been taken off. If you are not sure if you already have anti snap cylinders fitted then you can contact us to check and we can come round check your locks and give you a no obligation quote
