Reasons to Get Your Locks Changed

Lock Snapping


Lock Snapping is a technique used by burglars which involves breaking a specific kind of cylinder lock, allowing the intruder to quickly and easily gain admittance to the house. If the correct amount of force is applied to the cylinder, it will snap and provide easy access to the lock mechanism.

Lock Snapping has grown to become more widespread over the past several years as it requires no specialized hardware or expert knowledge, simply the force of a mallet, mole grips or anything else that can grab and take hold of a lock cylinder is sufficient to obtain entry. Many readily accessible videos online demonstrate the shocking force, speed and simplicity of the technique that intruders are utilising to get into houses throughout the country, with Airdrie no exception to this unsettling criminal trend. One online video which we have seen reveals how thieves can get access to a cylinder even if it isn't protruding from the handle. In cases like this the handle is shown literally being ripped from the door, the cylinder exposed and the locking mechanism compromised making use of household tools such as a mallet and screwdriver.

Other home security measures which are in place on your door including shoot-bolts, dead-bolts, roller keeps and anti lift bars are rendered useless because once the lock cylinder is broken and removed from your door the intruder can reach the locking mechanism with a screwdriver or similar tools. As soon as the locking mechanism is compromised your door will be unlocked and provide easy access, burglars have even been known to gain entry to houses with security alarms fitted employing this technique due to the speed of access.The majority of lock repairs can be completed by your Airdrie locksmith within the hour (depending on the degree of damage to the door. Doors and locks with significant damage may take a bit longer to repair).

A recent TV documentary revealed how a former burglar, without prior experience of snapping locks, could use this technique to get into to a house within 40 seconds, even he admitted how shocked he was at the simplicity and speed of gaining access, he said an experienced lock snapper would possibly gain access within fifteen seconds.Another ex- burglar admitted that even if he had the best lock picks in the country, he would rather break the lock cylinder because "it's simpler and much less difficult".

Police say it's approximated around 22 million doors throughout the country might be at risk from lock snapping where the lock cylinder can be broken in mere seconds.Your LockRite locksmith Airdrie is an expert in fitting anti-snap locks.

What Locks Are Susceptible


Locks which are in danger of lock snapping are Euro Cylinder profiles, and any locks which protrude beyond 3mm of the handle. The more the lock cylinder protrudes from the door the more prone to tampering it becomes as it is much easier to clasp and take hold of, but even if a lock cylinder doesn't protrude from the handle it still isn't resistant to tampering, something which our Airdrie locksmith understands only too well.

Euro Cylinders are normally installed in uPVC doors. Various kinds of Euro Cylinder include: The Single Cylinder, which gives key entry from one side only, The Double Cylinder which provides key entry from the front and back of the door and The Double Cylinder with Thumbturn that offers key entry from one side and employs a thumbturn on the other side of the door. The lock cylinders are available with various types of locking mechanisms, these could be disc tumbler, pin tumbler, and wafer tumbler locks. Cylinder Locks may be found in a variety of sizes and profiles to suit specific door sizes, but the profile vulnerable to lock snapping by thieves is referred to as the Euro Profile.

Anti-Snap Locks


Locks that are of a TS007 3 Star standard (better known as 'anti-snap' locks) are cylinders that meet the requirements to withstand lock snapping attacks.

Anti-Snap lock cylinders feature an integrated 'break-off' component that will come away if a burglar was to try to snap the lock, making the cylinder shorter, consequently making it more tricky to grasp. With the assistance of built in grip defenders it makes getting hold of the cylinder even more challenging. Moreover anti-snap locks have a toughened bar which will not break, it will only bend making snapping practically impossible.

Ensure your current locks do not over extend. If they appear to be vulnerable you may want to think about getting them changed by your LockRite Airdrie locksmith.

We can easily install anti-snap cylinders to your doors to protect you from this form of attack.Call us on 01236 808755 for a free, no obligation quote.

Thieves Targeting Houses With Locksmith Stickers

Thieves are using stickers advertising a fictitious local locksmith company to mark homes which are an 'easy target'. The criminals carry out a preliminary reconnaissance on the area and mark houses which are deemed as having poor security measures in place. They later return to break into the houses which have already been marked as targets. The authorities are advising residents to remove the stickers immediately if they see any on their doors or windows.

Is your home secure? Call us today on 01236 808755 to arrange a security check on your premises.

Tips For Choosing a Locksmith in Airdrie

There are many factors to consider when choosing a locksmith in Airdrie. Our checklist below should help you when making a decision.


  • Check the locksmith is DBS (CRB) checked. This will reveal whether they have a hidden criminal past. You need someone you can trust working with your home security, so if they do not have a clean DBS (CRB) check walk away.

  • Check the price quoted is what you will pay. Many locksmiths will quote one price on the phone only to bump the price up dramatically once the work has been undertaken. Make sure you know what you will be paying before work commences and sign something agreeing to the charges.

  • Make sure you are happy with what the locksmith says regarding your home security and don't be pressurised into an expensive upsell. Not all locks are equal, and some cheaper locks do not provide adequate security for home insurance purposes so make sure if you're having new locks installed they are right for you.

  • Always use a trusted locksmith with a decent reputation and accountability. There are many rogue traders who just want to rip customers off. Check their websites for testimonials and guarantees. If anything looks or feels dodgy, walk away and find another locksmith.

  • Call their advertised number and see how long it takes them to answer. If calls are left ringing with no answer or diverts to voicemail numerous times it could indicate they will be difficult to get hold of if there is a problem with their work. Use a locksmith who answers their phone!


Hopefully this checklist will help you to choose the best Airdrie locksmith for your needs.

All LockRite locksmiths are DBS (CRB) checked and will always confirm the price you will pay before commencing any work.

Home Security in the Summer Months

As summer approaches and the days get warmer it is natural to leave windows open and doors ajar to keep homes cooler. Unfortunately this can be an open invitation to the "sneak-in" opportunist burglar who will take advantage of open doors and windows and make off with small, expensive items such as mobile phones and laptops, or even a set of house keys to return later when the house is empty or everyone is asleep.

If a burglary takes place without any visible signs of forced entry it can invalidate insurance claims, so it is important to remain security concious in the summer. One way to help prevent "sneak-in" burglaries is to install door security chains and window restrictors. This allows doors and windows to be left open slightly while offering enough security to deter an opportunist thief.
