There has been a lot of confusing information on the media this week regarding an epidemic of burglaries concerning PVC door’s euro profile cylinders and their weakness against attack from snapping.
There are many solutions available. some costing hundreds of pounds!
Highly recommended is the Evolution solid Stainless Handle for PVC Doors made by Mila
Whilst there is a problem with the locks being snapped mainly in West Yorkshire, with the many details available on sites such as Youtube, this problem may spread to Manchester, Stockport, Wilmslow, Cheadle and Macclesfield
The first and most important thing to check is the projection of the cylinder from the handle ( how far the cylinder, or barrel sticks out) If there is more than 5 mm of the cylinder visible, then your home is at great risk!
