LOCKSMITH MANCHESTER

Out and about over the weekend we saw a couple of howlers with regards to lock security. We took a picture of a door with a lock so incorrectly sized and fitted that it stuck out far enough for you to hang your coat on. It was that far out you could see at least 2 of the pins for the cylinder.

The golden rule is a euro cylinder lock should stick out of the handle no more than 5mm. Ideally flush, but this isn’t always possible. Anything further than that means that somebody could grab hold of the lock, snap it out of the door and be into your property in under 60 seconds!

Make sure you have the correct lock size fitted to the door. And if poaaible make sure it’s an Anti Snap – for any advice all me – Locksmith Manchester Fran 0161 9770076.
