Types of Lock
The Euro Cylinder lock is now the most common type of door lock found in the UK today. It is used in both UPVC and Composite doors but can also be fitted as a Mortice deadbolt or Sash lock in a wooden or metal door. The lock works by aligning pins inside when the correct key is inserted therefore allowing the central cam to turn and operate the Multipoint Locking System inside the door to enable opening or locking. Do bear in mind that all Euro Cylinders are not equal; they range from a basic lock, an Anti Snap lock and then on to TS007 rated 1 star, 2 star and 3 star with 3 star being the highest standard currently available. Here at Lockforce we fit Anti Snap lock cylinders as our minimum standard with the option available to upgrade to the excellent Brisant Ultion 3 star which comes with protection features such as Anti Pick, Anti Bump, Anti Drill along with a lockdown mode which locks the central cam in place should a burglar have got that far as the very sight of one of these is a usually enough deterrent to an opportunistic thief!

Anti Snap Locks
A standard Euro Cylinder type of lock is vulnerable to a method of attack known as “lock snapping” commonly used by opportunistic burglars due to the speed of access. The burglar applies pressure to the lock causing it to snap at its weakest point (the middle) allowing the lock to be removed and the door to be opened in a matter of seconds. If you have a standard Euro Cylinder in a UPVC or Wooden door then it is at risk from this type of attack and you should consider upgrading your lock. At Lockforce we fit Anti Snap (also known as snapsafe) cylinders as a minimum standard. The replacement cylinder has a snap line which is hidden in the door recess once fitted. If a criminal tries the snapping method of attack on an Anti Snap cylinder then the lock will fracture on the snap line which leaves a large portion of the cylinder in place and the door will remain locked keeping you safe.
If you need any help call Lockforce Locksmiths Crewe on 01270 291 219 today and you can speak with James Schofield to help you right away.
Night Latches & Rim Cylinders aka Yale Locks
Much like the way we all call a vacuum cleaner a “Hoover”, Night Latches are very often referred to as “Yale” locks as this is a common brand of night latch in the UK. This type of lock usually has a round face on the exterior of the door and is most likely to be found on a wooden door. On the inside of the door you will usually find a release that can open the door without the need for a key (unless British Standard Insurance Approved version) so that in flats or houses of multiple occupancy it is an easy means of escape in the event of fire. The design is such that when the door is closed it will automatically lock by means of a latch locating into a keep on the door frame. This design does however make it quite easy to lock yourself out of your house. If you have this type of lock fitted to your front door that doesn't need a key to exit (British Standard) then it must be fitted in conjunction with a Mortice type deadlock lower down the door to comply with insurance company requirements unless the other interior doors of the property have additional locks fitted.
If you need any help call Lockforce Locksmiths Crewe on 01270 291 219 - we would be delighted to help you with any lock related issue.
