Yale launch new anti-snap lock


With lock snapping crimes on the increase, home security specialist Yale, part of the ASSA ABLOY Group, has launched a new Anti-Snap euro profile cylinder.

Replacing the lock cylinder is an effective and easy way of making your home secure without having to change the entire lock or door. If you have an external PVCu or composite door, you can upgrade the euro profile cylinder to Yale’s new Anti-Snap lock, then you can be assured that your home has the very latest security protection.  

The new Anti-Snap euro profile lock cylinder offers three separate lines of defence to deter even the most determined attack.  

These include a snap-off front section, which will come away if attacked to give the intruder less of the cylinder to grasp; hardened grip defenders, which make gripping the rest of the cylinder difficult; and a hardened reinforced bar – designed not to snap, but to flex in a way that will defeat the vast majority of intruders. 

In addition to these new lines of defence, the Yale Anti-Snap cylinder still has the same great features that you would expect from the original Yale Kitemarked cylinder, including anti-drill, anti-screw, anti-bump and anti-pick protection. 

As well as complying to the British Standard Kitemark BS EN 1303:2005, Yale’s new Anti-Snap cylinder has also undergone rigorous testing to meet the Sold Secure SS312 Diamond Standard – offering the very best protection in lock security.

The Yale Anti-Snap euro profile cylinder is available from a selection of major retailers and locksmiths from £29.99.

Further Yale security products are available from your local DIY store, locksmiths or hardware stores. Call 01902 364647 for stockists or visit www.yalesecuritypoint.co.uk to find a Yale Security Point installer in your area. For more information visit www.yale.co.uk
