Snap-safe locks

At Mersey Locksmiths, we pride ourselves on helping make your home or business more secure. When it comes to your door locks, we only supply and fit snap-safe locks; we wouldn't recommend anything else.

What are snap-safe locks?

Snap-safe locks are designed to prevent burglars from easily entering through your door by lock snapping - a crime on the rise and much easier than you'd think, letting a burglar into your propertyin less than 10 seconds. Snap-safe locks are high security euro lock cylinders designed and tested to stop thieves from breaking the lock into two pieces. They have sacrificial sections which means if a burglar snaps the front of the lock, then the locking mechanism remains protected and intact buried inside the door. This allows the door to remain locked and protected and keeps the would-be burglar on the outside of your house.
