Over 80% of homes in the UK are fitted with a standard Euro Cylinder locking mechanism which offers little or no protection, whether it be for your business, home or family. A thief can get past these types of locks and gain access to your property in well under a minute by using inexpensive tools that are readily available and easy to buy on the internet.
The vulnerability of some Euro cylinders has been known for many years within the double glazing industry but remained a trade secret.
In fact, when a customer loses their keys to their UPVC door, a service engineer will come and quickly snap the old lock in a matter of seconds
in order to fit the replacement.....easy!
Now this vulnerability can be exploited by almost anyone, due to information that is freely available on the internet today.
Some popular websites have what can only be describe as “video tutorials” on the subject demonstrating the ease in which Euro Cylinders
can be broken.
Burglaries through UPVC doors with these types of locks are getting increasingly more common.
It doesn’t matter how new your door is as 9 out of 10 will come with these basic locks.
