Lock snapping involves breaking of the lock or cylinder hardware using physical force of any sort. This is one of the ways by which burglars can gain entry into homes and they can execute it quickly using simple tools such as hammers and screwdrivers.
Euro Profile cylinder locks are mostly fitted on UPVC and composite doors in houses and homeowners need to be careful in such cases. After forcible breaking, the locking mechanism is then exposed allowing manual disengagement of the lock. This is a serious threat not only to property but also your family’s safety.
