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.

it would need to be dismantled. Contact Safe Lock Security and we

HOW DO I KNOW YOUR LOCKS ARE SUPERIOR TO
Not all "security" cylinders offer
robust protection against lock snapping attacks.
Burglars learn their trade and adapt, the more situations they
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.
