What is euro lock snapping?

Euro lock snapping is when your lock is attacked and snapped in half. This then gives access for the burglar to operate the locking mechanism with very little knowledge or tools and open your door. This method is very fast, relatively quiet and fairly easy to do. This technique is the preferred choice for many burglars and is widely used across Bristol and the UK.

Is my door vulnerable to euro lock snapping in Bristol? 

  • The most important thing to check is that your euro lock fits flush with your handles on the outside of your door.
  • Make sure your euro lock is kite marked as this means your lock has been accredited to a certain standard. This means your lock has been tested to withstand popular attack methods such as euro lock snapping, picking, and bumping. The euro lock star rating ranges from one star to three star diamond standard. 

How do burglars snap your euro lock? 

Usually burglars will do this by using simple tools. Most commonly mole grips and screwdrivers are the tools of choice. This technique requires lateral force to be applied to the end of the euro lock. This will result in your lock being snapped in half making your door unsecure and the mechanism vulnerable. Then a screwdriver or tool of choice is used to unlock your door. Did you know it normally takes less than a few minutes for burglars to gain access to your home using the euro lock snapping method?
