Security Lock Experts in middlesbrough

Indisputably, crime is becoming clever, with criminals become more and more versed in how to open our windows and doors. One such technique that’s on the rise across the UK is called ‘lock snapping’ and involves the burglar taking advantage of an inherent weakness in the locks fitted on common uPVC doors.

Locks that are a match for even the most-hardy of lock pickers. These locks are sourced from a number of select suppliers and audited by the national brand I represent. The vast majority deploy anti-snap and snap-safe technology to ensure that you’re protected from this worryingly easy lock breaking technique gaining currency across the criminal underworld.

Take a moment and watch this short video to see how quickly and easily your home and family could be in danger if your property is not secured with the proper locks. 

For more advice about how to best protect your property from lock snapping, call me today on  01642 921019.

Local News & Info

Burglary rises when the clocks go back: is your home at risk?

Burglary claims on home insurance rise by over a third when the clocks go back, new research suggests, leaving many homes at risk when daylight saving time comes to an end.  Homeowners have been warned to take extra caution ahead of the expected increase in break-ins when the clocks go back. Why do burglary claims rise when the clocks go back?  New data from The Co-op Insurance revealed that burglary claims increase by 34% when the clocks go back. Claims data since 2013 show a consistent spike in the number of households targeted by burglars during the five months of shorter daylight between November and March.  Burglaries were more likely to be targeted raids involving forced entry during the winter months, The Co-op found, with criminals acting under the cover of darkness. In the summer, break-ins are more likely to involve deception and be more opportunistic, with summer holiday season more likely to leave homes at risk.

Thumb Turn Locks!

There have been a number of burglaries recently where entry has been made easily due to Thumb Turn Locks fitted on Front Doors. These locks are fitted mostly on new build properties in order to comply with Fire Regulations. I would advise that a Thumb Turn is fitted to any of the other doors in the property where there is no letter box or have a letter box guard fitted to your front door. If you would like our free advice please give Lockforce Locksmiths Middlesbrough a call.
