What is lock snapping?

Lock snapping is an increasingly popular technique used by criminals who wish to break in to a property. The lock cylinder is broken and the lock is manipulated open. Lock snapping is becoming increasingly popular as it requires no specialist tools or knowledge, it is relatively quiet and it is extremely quick. This method started in the Bradford area, and has now spread nationally. As many as 25% of break ins use this method of entry.
