Locks In UPVC Doors
« on: August 22, 2018, 06:43:00 PM »
Had an interesting if unpleasant last week having had visitors during the night was shocked at how easy stock locks are to break in UPVC doors and how easy it is to do something about it and fit decent kit just a shame it isn’t done in the first place.

I’m informed there’s a tool that can be banged into the lock with a sliding weight on the end of it and it just breaks the door lock in half,with the good quality option just pulls 3/4 cm out and leaves the rest in situ.

Lock smith turns up says’Must do 10 a week mate the standard fitment is crap on modern day UPVC doors.

UPVC doors and frames by nature are flexible, screw driver at a point away from the lock then move down the frame to flex the lock, it is easy done!
Basic slide bolt on inside prevents this !
Keep the XRs safe!  :305:

A lot of locks can also be opened with a bump key.

Euro Cylinders are also really easy to change for locks that are very secure at quite a low cost too.

Euro locks can be replaced in a couple of minutes with a anti bump/anti snap lock.
