FAQ's

"A security professional from Safe Lock Security will visit your home to evaluate your current lock requirements - free of charge."


WHAT IS "LOCK SNAPPING"?

This is where the lock cylinder is literally snapped in two by applying force to the cylinder.

Thieves have devised methods of snapping these types of cylinder locks in a matter of seconds and still be able to operate the lock to open the door.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE A VUNERABLE LOCK?

You cannot tell from the outside if you have a vulnerable lock, it would need to be dismantled. Contact Safe Lock Security and we will survey your locks for free.

DO YOU CHARGE A CALL OUT FEE TO SURVEY MY LOCKS?

No, there is no charge to evaluate your lock requirements.

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST TO FIT YOUR LOCKS?

If we discover after evaluation that you do not require anti-snap lcoks there is no charge. The cost for a door lock is £89.00, we offer discounts for multple locks fitted.

HOW DO I KNOW YOUR LOCKS ARE SUPERIOR TO COMPETITORS?

Not all "security" cylinders offer robust protection against lock snapping attacks.

Burglars learn their trade and adapt, the more situations they come across. 

The theory of cylinders with snap lines is that once attacked the front of the cylinder is sacrificed, leaving little for the burglar to grab hold of. We have found that burglars merely attack a second time using the same tools.

The sacrificial cut cylinders can also be rendered useless when a screw is driven passed the sacrificial line.

As these products are being marketed as a robust solution we feel it is important for you to be aware of their shortcomings. Please ensure that cylinders fitted have a valid Sold Secure "Diamond" Licence, or if they claim to be Kitemarked to TS007 that a "three star" certification is applicable to the cylinder. Many manufactures are claiming compliance with these standards but failing to inform of the correct grade achieved
.

The ABS secure cylinder has achieved what no other cylinder on the market has - Sold Secure Diamond. This standard is the most stringent security test - significantly more demanding than other security standards. West Yorkshire Police recommend Sold Secure diamond Products.
