Are your door locks as easy to get open without a key as with a key?

The cylinder barrels in UPVC and composite doors are proving to be a target of choice for burglars and thieves. I personally know a friend of mine in Cannock who was a victim of such a break in where the burglars targetted his home due to the locks to steal his sports car.

The standard lock barrels fitted to most doors can be accessed by burglars by removing the plastic surround in order to give the criminal greater leverage on the lock. The lock can then be snapped using a common DIY shop tool. This then allows the door to be opened as the lock no longer functions. This takes less than 20 seconds.;

There are a range of improved lock barrels on the market that feature an anti snap strip that resists the lock breaking at a point that allows entry through the door. The improved locks also feature anti-drill, anti-pick and anti-bump design elements.

Lock Master - Locksmiths Cannock are keen to help the Cannock Chase community by offering a lock upgrade service for local residents. Lockmaster are offering to go out to homes and businesses within the Cannock area and replace locks with the improved cylinder locks for just £70 per door. The best standard barrels are also available for £99 which include a 5 year guarantee that pays out £5000 in the events of someone breaking in through the lock. This is an inclusive price and includes the call out, purchase of the lock and fitting. Each lock comes with 3 keys and additional keys can be cut by Lock Master at a preferential rate.

Why not make your home more secure than those around you for the small investment? Be safe today and lets bring down the burglary figures for the Cannock and Hednesford areas.
