UPVC Door Security
High Security Door Cylinders
Lock bumping a UPVC door lock can take around 5 seconds for a burglar to gain entry to your property.
- A 10 year old child can open a UPVC door with a bump key
- Bump keys can be bought by anyone from a number of websites in the UK for as little as £2
- When lock bumping has occurred on your property there is no sign of forced entry or damage to the lock meaning insurance companies are wary in paying out
- Our UAP cylinders will protect you 100% against lock bumping. We guarantee this for life of the lock
- All our UAP cylinders we supply and fit come with 5 years parts & labour warranty
The truth is that the majority of security cylinders on the market today are not Anti-Snap so thieves will not even attempt to pick or bump the lock, they will move straight onto snapping the cylinder.
Lock snapping is a problem that most security door cylinders have failed to address. The principle is easy to enough to understand & apply pressure to the lock cylinder and it will snap.
The problem this leads to is that all of the other security measures that you thought were keeping you safe; the dead-bolts, anti-lift bars etc. are all rendered useless as lock snapping focuses only on the cylinder and exploiting its inherent weaknesses.

Lost the keys to my garage door lock, and after several attempts of trying to hack away at the lock I still couldn't managed to get in. I called the Locksmith out and he replaced the lock on my garage door, within no time at all especially being on a sunday! The locksmiths gave me a free security survey and I've booked him for next week, good locksmith and had some good deals available. Ali
Hi Ali, thank you for your review and we do our best to arrive promptly to our customers. Tom
Locked out at 6am googled these fellas and I was back in by 6.40am, sorry can't say much racing to work, and thanks for the 10% discount leaflet, Sid
Hi Sid, thanks for taking the time to review us
I Yell.com for a locksmith and your company were first to appear, spoke to Chris who booked me in quoting a reasonable price and the locksmith arrived within half an hour. Great job! Tobias
Hi Tobias, we're glad that your satisfied with our service, thanks for the kind comments.
Hi had to leave your fab team a review as you made my feel more at ease with the house move. The engineer had a fully stocked van and was able to discuss the various options available to me. Much appreciated Shreyas
Hi Shreyas, thank you for your kind words and we will pass them on to the engineer. Tom
I called this company at 11.30pm (Sunday night) as I was locked out after returning from holiday without my keys. I looked on Yell.com and found this local company that promised to be with me in 20 mins as I had 2 children they said I would be priority. Within 10 mins a guy called Ray arrived and got us in our house, then changed my locks and was gone in 30 mins. I have to say I was very impressed with the speed of the call out and the service I received. I have booked ray in to come back and fit all my window locks. Cant recommend highly enough 🙂
Highly Secure Euro Cylinder
The high security Euro Cylinder is, as you would expect, Anti-Bump, Anti-Pick, Anti-Drill and Zero Lift. However, the feature which really sets this apart is the Anti-Snap feature. The Euro Cylinder will keep you safe from all of these methods of attack and replacing your cylinder is a quick, easy and inexpensive way to purchase peace of mind.
Ordinarily, companies develop locks and cylinders that can withstand lock bumping but there are not many that have thought about or looked at lock snapping. This is because creating an Anti-Snap cylinder is not an easy thing to do. Unfortunately, thieves and miscreants know this and so lock snapping is quickly becoming the number one way that they enter premises.
Recently there has been a wave of lock snapping attacks, so many so that it has caught the attention of the media. As a result of the coverage, many people are aware of this threat but are either unaware of what they can do about it, worried that the solution will cost a small fortune or are blissfully ignorant in the belief that their security lock will automatically be Anti-Snap.
Resist lock snapping and bumping
Your UPVC door is more than likely protected by nothing more than a £5 lock
The Anti-Bump, Anti-Pick, Anti-Drill, Zero Lift and Anti-Snap Euro Cylinder is specifically designed to keep you safe. The solution to the lock snapping problem seems simple but is the result of ingenious research and testing. Most lock cylinders snap in such a way that leaves the locking mechanism useless, causing the door to swing right open. An Anti-Snap cylinder is mostly snap resistant but if it were to snap at all, it would snap in a way that kept the locking mechanism, and your safety, intact.
Of course, all of the Euro Cylinders are six pin and each conform to EN1303:2005 British Standard Kitemark, easily one of the most recognised and revered safety hallmarks in the world.
