Anti Snap Lock Fitting
1. SS312 Diamond Approved Standard. The Highest level of security of Euro Cylinder currently the SS312 Diamond Approved Standard. I believe to reduce the chances of you becoming a victim of lock snapping that you purchases a Sold Secure SS312 Standard lock. All Locks that meet this standard can be found on the Sold Secure website (click here to visit).
2. A TS007 3Star Euro Profile Cylinder. This cylinder meets the standard required by the British standard institution. Therefore displays the BSI kite mark, it is key to note the star level of rating above the BSI kite mark as this determines the level of security this lock will provide. With 3 star being the highest level and 1 star providing the lowest level of security but still upholding the British Standard TS007.
3. 1 or 2 Star Kite marked lock in conjunction with 1 or 2 star kite marked handles to make the equivalent of 3 star security. Euro Cylinders security is increased with a British standard set of handles or escutcheons. 01724 375 015!
