Reasons to Get Your Locks Changed

Lock Snapping


Lock Snapping is a technique used by intruders that involves snapping a particular type of lock cylinder, helping the burglar to easily get into to your house. If the right amount of pressure is applied to the cylinder, it can break and provide easy access to the locking mechanism.

Lock Snapping has grown to become more common over the last few years as it requires no specialized hardware or expert knowledge, just the power of a hammer, mole grips or anything else which can grab and take hold of a cylinder is enough to gain entry. Many readily accessible online videos show the shocking force, speed and simplicity of the method that intruders are utilising to break into homes all across the country, with Melton no exception to this disturbing criminal trend. One video clip that we have seen shows how intruders can gain access to a cylinder even if it is not sticking out from the handle. In this case the handle is shown literally being ripped off of the door, the lock cylinder exposed and the locking mechanism compromised making use of household tools such as a mallet and screwdriver.

Additional home security measures which are installed on your door including shoot-bolts, dead-bolts, roller keeps and anti lift bars are made useless because as soon as the lock cylinder is broken and removed from your door the intruder can reach the locking mechanism via a screwdriver or similar equipment. As soon as the locking mechanism is compromised your door will be unlocked and provide quick access, thieves have also been known to break in to houses with alarm systems fitted using this method because of the speed of access.The majority of lock repairs can be completed by your Melton locksmith within 60 minutes (depending on the level of damage to the door. Doors and locks with significant damage may take longer to repair).

A recent short television documentary reported how an ex burglar, without previous experience of snapping locks, could use this method to get into to a property within 40 seconds, even he admitted how surprised he was at the ease and speed of gaining entry, he said an expert lock snapper could probably gain access in as little as fifteen seconds.Another ex- burglar stated that even if he had the best lock picks in England, he would prefer to snap the lock cylinder because "it's simpler and easier".

Police have said it is estimated around twenty-two million doors through the UK might be in danger of lock snapping where the lock cylinder can be broken in just a few seconds.Your LockRite locksmith Melton is a specialist in installing anti-snap cylinders.

Which Locks Are At Risk


Locks that are at risk of lock snapping are those of Euro Cylinder profiles, and any locks that extend beyond 3mm of the door handle. The further the lock cylinder sticks out from the door the more likely to tampering it becomes as it is much easier to grip and take hold of, but even if a lock cylinder doesn't stick out from the handle it still isn't resistant to tampering, something that our Melton locksmith knows only too well.

Euro Cylinders are commonly present in uPVC doors. Different kinds of Euro Cylinder include: The Single Cylinder, which offers key entry from one side only, The Double Cylinder giving key entry from the back and front of the door and The Double Cylinder with Thumbturn which has key access from one side and employs a thumb-turn on the opposite side of the door. The lock cylinders are available with various types of locking mechanisms, including disc tumbler, pin tumbler, or wafer tumbler locks. Cylinder Locks may be found in a variety of sizes and profiles to accommodate specific door sizes, but the profile susceptible to lock snapping by burglars is known as the Euro Profile.

Anti-Snap Locks


Lock cylinders which are TS007 3 Star standard (also called 'anti-snap' cylinders) are lock cylinders that fulfill the specifications to hold up to lock snapping attacks.

Anti-Snap lock cylinders feature an integrated 'break-off' segment that will come away if a burglar was to make an attempt to snap the cylinder, which makes cylinder shorter, thus making it more tricky to clasp. With the support of in-built grip defenders it can make grasping the lock cylinder even more challenging. In addition anti-snap locks have a hardened bar which wont snap, it will only flex making snapping practically impossible.

Ensure your current locks don't protrude by more than 3mm. If they appear susceptible you might want to consider having them upgraded by your LockRite Melton locksmith.

We can fit anti-snap cylinders to your doors to protect you from this form of attack.Call us on 01664 493060 for a free, no obligation quote.

Lock Changes by LockRite Locksmiths Melton

Just purchased a new property?Do you have any idea how many other people may have keys to your home?

Not only that but duplicates of the keys could have been made for family members or neighbours to gain access while the owners were on holiday. For your protection and assurance your locksmith Melton can change the locks in your home and guarantee that you're the only person who possesses the new keys.

  • Are your locksmiths local?
    Yes! Our locksmiths actually live within the locality they serve or close enough for a short commute. Not only does this mean they can be with you quickly (usually within 30-60 minutes) but it also means you are helping to support a local business rather than a company which has no interest in your community.

  • What should I do while waiting for the locksmith to arrive?
    Please make sure we have a valid contact number for you (mobile/neighbours landline, etc) and that you are able to answer the phone in case the locksmith has problems locating you. Please don't tamper with the lock yourself as you could cause additional damage which may prove expensive to repair.
  • How long will it take for the locksmith to gain entry?
    If the lock is a standard rim cylinder type (Yale/Euro Cylinder) then in most instances entry can be gained quickly, sometimes within a matter of minutes. More complex locks such as five lever mortice deadlocks will take longer due to their inherently secure nature.
  • Do you provide commercial locksmith services?
    Yes we do. We regularly carry out work for commercial clients.
  • How can I pay for work?
    We accept all major debit and credit cards and will also take cash on site. Payment can be made via a card terminal carried by our locksmiths or payments can be made by calling our head office and a receipt will be given.
