How do burglars work?
One of the most common methods used by burglars and criminals alike is lock snapping, which exploits a vulnerable cylinder lock. The use of a simple tool can essentially help to over twist a door lock and then expose the end of the cylinder. The weakest point on a cylinder lock is near the centre screw, and if the cylinder is poking out from the door too much, then the cylinder itself can be manipulated and broken off.
Once this has been broken off, the whole locking mechanism for the door will become exposed to the burglar. They will then be able to turn the cam, which in essence turns the lock. The main reason why it is a common method is simply due to the speed that it takes for a burglar to carry out this action.
What can you do about this.
To help prevent any burglars from performing this popular technique on your own door lock, then you must make sure to use only a high security British Standard Anti-Snap Cylinder. This type of lock is the ideal for preventing your premises being broken in to through the method of Lock Snapping. The way in which these types of locks work, is that as soon as any reasonable amount of force is applied to an end, the cylinder will break at a certain distance only. This will leave the cam intact and the remainder of the cylinder will be safe within the door.
