What are anti-snap locks?
Anti-snap locks are locks designed to prevent the cylinder being forced to break with a sacrifical area breaking off preventing access to the cental cam of the lock cylinder.
Firstly, this anti snap lock is a guarantee that when you close your door and lock it, no person can break in to gain entry. This method of forced entry is known as Lock Snapping.
It is important to know that this anti snap lock is designed to break at the cut point when enough force is applied.
This disables the lock from whatever side has been attacked. You can still use the lock as normal from the inside which still allows use of that particular door in the short term until the lock is replaced.
Not surprisingly, no one in Sheffield has ever claimed the £2,000 guarantee and Burglars continue to be unsuccessful in attempts to snap Anti-snap locks to gain entry into peoples homes and businesses.
