Euro locks can be found on all Upvc doors some wood doors and some metal doors, in general no matter what the door is made out of if it has a multi point locking mechanism then it will have a euro cylinder fitted as well. Euro locks are very vulnerable to two types of brake in one is called lock snapping and the other is called lock bumping. The most common of these two types is lock snapping. This is where the euro lock can be broken at its weakest point which is in the middle and the multi point locking mechanism can be easily manipulated open. The whole process only takes about 30 seconds and is very quite this makes it the ideal technique for burglars to use because its fast and effective. We cant go into to much detail about how the lock snapping technique is done because we don't want to give tips to burglars but it is happening across Leeds every single day. West Yorkshire police now recommend fitting British standard anti snap and snap safe euro locks as a direct replacement for the standard barrels.
