When a burglar tries to snap the lock, it activates “lock down mode”. It is then virtually impossible to prise the door open using a screwdriver. And will require heavy drilling and work to get anywhere near opening your door.
It’s housed in a molybdenum core, a material 25% denser than iron. No one will be drilling this lock quickly, or quietly.
It’s even still snap secure with the key inside of the lock.

The locks most at risk of lock snapping are fitted with a Euro profile cylinder,which are found in most uPVC and composite doors installed in the last 15 years and operate in combination with a multipoint lock.
With millions of homes across the UK potentially affected. Extensive media coverage has helped to demonstrate the vulnerability of Euro profile cylinders. Lock snapping does not require experience, precision or he skill, but relies on sheer brute force. Using simple tools such as hammers or screwdrivers to snap the lock, it has been shown that criminals can gain entry to a property in just 15 seconds.

Burglar methods of attack increase in sophistication and severity year-on-year, so a commitment to ongoing research and development is vital in helping to stay one step ahead of the criminals.
