Anti-snap locks Rotherham

Lock snapping in Rotherham.

Lock snapping is on the increase! A euro cylinder is the name of the lock on an upvc door, and it is made of metal brass. This helps with the lifespan of the cylinder in that it is maintenance-free. The problem with brass is that it is a soft metal. A “retaining” screw holds in the euro cylinder. At this point, the cylinder has a “weak” area. If you apply enough force, you can make the cylinder snap in half! Read about anti-snap locks in Rotherham here for more information on what can be done.
