Anti-snap door lock package deal

Why you must upgrade your door locks

Lock-snapping is rising in Rotherham. S Fretwell & Sons advise everyone to consider upgrading the locks on uPVC, composite, and patio doors if they are euro cylinders that are not anti-snap. We attended our first burglary in 2007 in the Scunthorpe area, where lock snapping had occurred. The origins are vague on where it all began, but most events occurred in the West Yorkshire area in the early 2000s. They began to hit South Yorkshire shortly after.

If you need clarification on your type of locks, call us, and we will offer the best possible advice. Unless you are an experienced locksmith, it’s hard to tell if your locks are the vulnerable type.

Anti-snap locks have improved significantly over the last 15 years. Some were and still are very good, but others were not fit for purpose at the time.

What is lock snapping?

In simple terms, the lock mainly consists of brass, a soft but non-corrosive metal. Because of how they are manufactured, a weak point allows the locks to be forced and snapped, allowing easy entry. This “secret” has been kept quiet, but with YouTube allowing people to publish the latest “how to” video, this knowledge is no longer the secret it was.

What’s included in our anti-snap door lock deal

The solution is our anti-snap-lock package. The average house has three euro cylinders fitted to the external doors, which can be swapped for three high-security and high-quality Ultion anti-snap locks. These fantastic door locks also offer anti-bump, anti-pick, and anti-drill protection. They uniquely come with a £5000 guarantee that will be paid to you if the lock is snapped and entry gained.

The price for three is £210 fitted, a fantastic price to consider for future security. Additional locks only cost £50 each. We can also cut extra keys for these high-security locks.
