West Mercia Police Notice

ARE THE CORRECT LOCKS FITTED TO YOUR DOORS?

Euro-cylinder locks are present on the majority of UPVC doors and we are aware that some offenders have developed a method of overcoming them to then gain access into a home.

Look to upgrade your euro-cylinder locks if they have not achieved a 3 star rating under the TS 007 testing process or the Sold Secure Diamond Standard (SS312).

Euro-cylinder locks can be changed by yourself, but you will need to measure them properly to ensure they are the right size for your door. They should not be fitted so they protrude from the door unit or handle.

If you are going to ask someone to upgrade your locks for you, consider using the Master Locksmiths Association or a reputable security company. Obtain three quotes for the fitting of new locks to the standards referenced above and pick the one that best suits your circumstances.

When replacing your locks you should consider fitting Anti-Snap locks. These types of locks are designed to have two parts. These parts are built to enable the door to lock even if a burglar manages to break the front part of the barrel off. With the way these types of locks are designed they prevent access to the inner part of the locking barrel and thereby preventing burglars from accessing the locking mechanism and unlocking your door.

Due to the way these locks are designed you can also continue using your lock because the locking mechanism section will continue to work until you change the whole lock.
