Lock-snapping is now the most common method of entry for burglars in the Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley and Chesterfield area.
Lock-snapping is a method of forced entry where-by the burglar uses a wrench to snap the cylinder in your door in half, thus rendering the lock useless and giving the burglar access to your property.
The scary thing about lock snapping is how quickly a burglar can enter your property. The video below shows the burglar snap the lock and gain entry to the property within 9 seconds.
What is worse is most insurance companies will not cover you for any stolen goods or damage if the locks on your property are not insurance approved British Standard 3621.
Thankfully there is a solution to this problem, and that is to have insurance approved, British Standard BS3621 snap-safe locks installed on your property.
Snap-safe locks are specifically designed to defend against burglars that are aiming to enter your property using this method. Most seasoned burglars will see that the lock is a snap-safe lock and it will act as a deterrent and stop them from even attempting to enter the property.
