Anti Snap Cylinders
So How do Anti-Snap Door Cylinders Work?
A typical cylinder lock can easily be broken if its body extends further than 5 mm beyond the leaf of your door. The benefit of installing an anti-snap door cylinder is that it actually provides a “false front” to your lock, which may be broken off during a break in attempt but leaves the main security mechanism intact – so that it can continue to do its job and keep your property secure.
How Can I Benefit From an Anti-Snap Door Cylinder?
This particular type of hardware is designed to be damaged, providing a kind of “sacrificial” extension to your lock that can be snapped off to prevent unwanted entry and creating a barrier that keeps the door firmly secured – though this does not mean that you’re trapped in your home or that the mechanism is rendered useless until you replace it; you are still absolutely able to lock and unlock your door as usual until the time comes that you are able to replace your anti-snap cylinder.
There are many brands of anti snap cylinders available!
Some anti snap locks are better than others but every anti snap poses a significant problem to want to be thieves. If there is one single recommendation regarding cylinders, it is beyond a shadow of a doubt anti snap! Do NOT take the risk, buy an anti snap TODAY!
