Problem :Police and insurance companies give the advise to upgrade your locks to keep out the burglars, this is great advice, especially as we sell and install locks but generally  they simply say fit a 5 lever dead lock, this is great advice and well worth doing but can only be done on Timber doors that don’t have multi point locking, most door are now  UPVC with Multi point locking systems, no matter how hard you try a 5 lever deadlock isn’t going to work!!! Thankfully there is a simple solution..

Upgrade your cylinder lock, all multi point locks are controlled by a cylinder lock, this is the weak point. In the last 10 years most break-in’s were as a result of this weakness in your door, a  basic cylinder can be bypassed in a matter of minutes if not seconds with very simple tools, why let it be so easy…..FIT AN ANTI-SNAP CYLINDER to maximise the security of your existing multi point lock .


An  anti snap cylinder is actually designed to snap, but what makes it different and far far more secure is where it snaps, if an attempt is made to force entry your cylinder will get broken but your door will remain locked.

Anti-Snap security cylinders start at €45 and with a little advice it’s a relatively straightforward job for a compedant DIY’er, or if you’d prefer we are happy to arrange a convenient time with you and change the locks for you.
