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.
Following on from this in 2014, Brisant Secure released the TS007 3 star diamond (Sold Secure) accredited Ultion euro lock cylinder.
The accreditation is regarding having passed the Police and Insurance approved testing’s against all recognised attack methods including drilling, bumping, picking and snapping.
