We install Insurance and Police recommended locks for Doors and Windows.
There are normally two reasons for upgrading your locks, one is peace of mind that your property is secure, second is when it is an insurance company requirement, typically after a burglary-related claim.
We can advise you on all aspects of this work: –
- Mortise locks of all types (CHUBB etc.) conforming to BS3621 2007
- High security locking bolts of all types (INGERSOLL etc.)
- Window locks of all types (ERA etc.)
- All the above installed to our very high standards.

What is Lock Snapping?
Lock snapping is a very common method used by burglars to break into the property that has a euro cylinder (e.g. almost all properties that have UPVC doors, although a significant number of composite & aluminium doors use them too, and they’re often used in commercial as well as domestic environments). Lock snapping is a burglary method which necessitates snapping a particular type of lock cylinder in two by applying the correct amount of force and then removing the outside part of the lock to expose the locking mechanism itself. Once the locking mechanism has been exposed, it is vulnerable to manipulating which allows the door to be unlocked using basic household tools.
