Security Lock Experts in Stockton on Tees

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.

Here at Lockforce Locksmiths Stockton On Tees, we only use the best Police Approved British Standard Locks because your security matters to us. Please take a moment and watch this video from Ultion to see how how quickly a burglar can gain entry without the proper locks fitted to your home. 

For more advice about how to best protect your property from lock snapping, call me today on  01642 921015.

Local News

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.

For a free survey, to look at upgrading your locks call Alastair on 07910490191

UPVC Doors

The majority of households have UPVC or Composite Doors fitted. Unfortunately they are an easy point of entry for Burglars. I witness this regularly in the course of my job. Most houses have the cheapest locks fitted offering hardly any protection against Burglars.

The Multi Point Locking Systems fitted to these doors are a fantastic defence system but unfortunately they are only as strong as their weakest link. That is the Euro Cylinder Lock where you insert your key and lock your door. I would advise fitting a Cylinder that offers strong protection against Burglars. The Cylinders are not expensive and give you peace of mind whilst protecting your loved ones and all the assets in your home that you have paid for with your hard earned money.

I supply Anti Snap Locks as standard. I also supply Ultion 3 Star Locks which are the best Lock you can put on your door.
