When a force is applied to the lock cylinder, usually with a pair of mole grips or locking pliers and ripped out from the door - allowing access to the latch mechanism.

It can take somewhere between 50 seconds to 2 minutes to snap the lock and gain entry.  Depending on how skilled the criminal is, sometimes lock snapping can be performed in a matter of seconds.

It was recently estimated that in the UK alone, tens of millions of doors could be at risk from lock snapping.

This method is used throughout Europe as well as North America.

RB Locks Presents: Anti Snapping Cylinder

The anti-snapping cylinder developed by the RB Doors Locks products division has developed a slot that is intentionally designed to break down if excessive force or torque is applied on it, during tampering with the cylinder.

After breaking, the locking mechanism cannot be reached and the authorized key may continue to operate the snapped cylinder.
