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.

£2,000 guarantee

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.

Can burglars break anti-snap locks?

You go to bed at night and lock all of the doors (each door of course has an Anti-snap lock installed). The following morning you wake up and go downstairs.

Unbeknown to you, a Burglar has attempted to snap the lock on the rear door in an attempt to gain entry. At this stage, from the inside you will not notice any difference to the working of the Anti-snap lock attacked as it unlocks & locks with no problem.

It is only when you step outside and see the damage to the lock area that you will become aware. The outside of the lock attacked in this scenario is not accessible and so the burglar will not be able to gain access.

The main part of the lock is intact and working with the sacrificial part of the lock doing its job by denying access to the central cam. A replacement lock and handle can be fitted in less than 30 minutes.

Manufacturers warranty

Each Anti-snap lock has a 12 month manufacturers warranty should it not work correctly through no fault of your own. It is important to note that the following scenarios are NOT covered by this warranty:

  1. The door becoming misaligned and therefore causing the anti-snap lock to malfunction.
  2. The key snaps in the anti-snap lock and causes it to malfunction.
  3. Inserting regular WD40 or lubricant oil into the anti snap lock and it subsequently malfunctions.
  4. The anti-snap lock is attacked and is disabled as a consequence - this usually means an unsuccessful burglary attempt which is what the lock is designed to defend against - it has done exactly what it is supposed to do and kept you safe!

Guide to servicing the Anti-snap lock

To maintain the smooth operation a well installed anti-snap lock just needs lubricating every 6 months.

We suggest that this be carried out when the clocks are put forward and then when they are put back.

Do not use oils or WD40.

LUTION XM graphite powder from SheffLOCK maintains smooth key turning and prolongs your anti-snap lock life.

How do burglars snap locks?

Lock snapping burglary is a prolific method of entry that has been used by criminals for over a decade.

It is believed that this method originated in the West Yorkshire area of the UK sometime in 2007 and quickly spread throughout the country.

The method targets inadequate euro locks and UPVC handles on doors such as composite, UPVC, Patio and french doors to name a few.

The unfortunate reality is that these type of inadequate locks and handles are fitted as standard to the majority of doors installed everyday to members of the public who are sadly still unaware of how vulnerable to burglary they are.

Burglary Detectives

In 2007 the prolific burglary method of lock snapping was born in the West Yorkshire area.

This method of entry targeted euro lock cylinders as show cased in the video above and quickly spread throughout the country becoming the favoured method of entry for the burglar.

As Ex-Police officers, SheffLOCK know first-hand how difficult it is from a police prospective to apprehend those responsible as the method is quick, quiet and leaves very little if any opportunities for forensics to be obtained.

If a criminal is not seen, heard or leaves any forensic opportunities it makes the task of apprehending the persons responsible extremely difficult hence when a burglar uses this tactic a large amount of lock snapping type burglaries occur in a short period of time.

In 2014 Brisant Secure released the TS007 3 star diamond (Sold Secure) accredited anti-snap lock euro cylinder.

The TS007 3 star accreditation and the more aggressive Sold Secure Diamond testing accreditation is regarding having passed the Police and Insurance approved testing’s against all recognised attack methods including drilling, bumping, picking and snapping.

We strongly advise you check you current locks here via our quick lock assessment guide.

Anti-snap locks

Quiet and quick

Year on year statistics and our own personal experience as former Police officers has shown that burglars commit this method of entry at all times of the day, whether persons are in the property or not due to this method of entry being relatively quiet and scarily quick to commit.

On many occasions, if the offence is committed whilst people are asleep in bed, they awake to discover that they have been burgled but unfortunately heard nothing.

As a burglary prevention company we attend lock snapping burglary scenes on a consistent basis as the majority of home owners are still unaware or misinformed of the dangers of non accredited euro locks being installed.
