Anti-Snap Locks

Anti-snap locks are designed and tested to protect against lock snapping which is used by burgulars to break the lock into two parts. They are then able to operate the lock manually as the cylinder that usually locks all parts of your door no longer works.

Anti-snap locks are high security euro lock cylinders usually found on UPVC doors. They should be tested to British Standard Kitemarks. For more information visit this article on the Master Locksmiths Association website.

Feel safer in your own home with a Anti-Snap Locks

Premier Locksmiths can assess your home and install anti-snap locks on your UPVC and Aluminium doors.

The anti-snap locks we use are the APECS AP which adheres to the BSI 3 Star Kitemark, and is a Sold Secure Approved Diamond Standard Euro Cylinder which offers maximum protection. It safeguards from all forced methods of attack ranging from snapping, drilling, plug-extraction, picking and bumping.

The APECS AP cylinder is specifically designed to protect from unauthorised access by burglars. The AP cylinder is engineered with a unique sacrificial point, which when tampered with externally sets an interlocking cam mechanism into action, preventing any further damage to the internal parts of the cylinder, whilst still keeping the lock operable from the inside.

In the event of snapping, the home owner can still operate the door and exit the property due to the lock’s unique mechanism which is engaged when the cylinders external section is snapped off. This mechanism slides the clutch into place, preventing further external damage and manipulation of the cam, whilst keeping the lock operable from the inside.

The APECS AP euro cylinder is available with 5 keys and this can be selected when ordering.
