the most secure euro cylinder“Cylinder Snapping” and “Lock Bumping” is a growing method of burglary  in Manchester, Stockport and Macclesfield.You may well have heard of “cylinder snapping”. It is a method sometimes used by burglars to break into property that is secured using a europrofile cylinder (e.g. almost all properties that have UPVC or composite doors and they’re often used in commercial as well as domestic environments).

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!
