The ABS euro cylinder lock is installed in police and council target hardening projects to effectively prevent burglaries through securing your home against lock snapping and lock bumping.
10,000 ABS Diamond grade locks were fitted to vulnerable victims’ homes to stop burglars from continually breaking in via forcing standard euro cylinder locks.
Benefits of ABS Locks:
– If forcefully attacked, the front section of the lock will will snap off
– If the lock is further attacked, the second sacrificial section will then be deployed
– Consequently, access will be blocked, hereby preventing any entry
– Yet, access from the inside will still be possible, allowing you to lock or unlock the ABS lock.

Q. Why are ABS locks the market leader?
A. Unlike cheaper imitations, our ABS anti-snap locks have the British Standards Institute’s maximum TS007 3 star rating and also satisfy the Sold Secure Diamond Standard, making them the most secure anti-snap lock on the market. ABS locks are also police approved and come with a high security key. The police have already installed around 10,000 ABS locks to vulnerable homes, resulting in a significant reduction in crime.
Q. How easy is it to install ABS locks?
A. The ABS lock is retro-fit, which means it can quickly replace any existing Euro Cylinder to immediately protect your home against lock snapping, and other known methods of attack.
Q. Do I require any additional security handles and guards to make my home more secure?
A. No! By installing an ABS anti-snap lock, you have already secured your door lock against forced entry. There is no need to buy any expensive security handles or guards in addition to your lock.
Q. How do ABS locks work?
A. The lock has two sacrificial sections which are deployed when the lock is forced, in order protect the rest of the fitting. Unlike others products, the ABS lock is able to block all access points to prevent entry when under attack. After an attempt at forced entry, the external part of the lock will become unable to be used, but the interior lock mechanism will be protected, so you can still lock and unlock your door from inside your home.
Q. My door bolt is the latest in security with lots of lock points, such as hooks, and a large deadbolt. Will it be secure?
Hooks and bolts all provide effective locking points, but your key lock is the most vulnerable part of your door. Unless your Euro Cylinder is snap secure, it will not provide adequate protection against forced entry, and only certified anti-snap locks will be able to offer you full security against intruders.
Q. My Euro Cylinder has a British Kitemark, will it be snap secure?
A. The British Kitemark Standard BS EN 1303: 2005 does not cover snap resistance. Only the BSI TS007 3 star accreditation has passed the required anti-snap tests.
Q. My Euro Cylinder has sacrificial sections, will that provide protection against forced entry?
Only locks with anti-snap accreditation will be fully protected against lock-snapping. Other locks with sacrificial sections but without accreditation will slow down forced entry, but only by a few seconds. ABS locks satisfy both the BSI and the Sold Secure Diamond requirements, making them the most secure locks available.
