The ABS Secure MK3-G cylinder features unique "Snap Secure" patented technology that ensures that if the door is attacked, the cylinder snaps in TWO places (not just one like all other anti-snap models).
The first at the sacrificial point just behind the door line makes a second attack extremely difficult. Should a second attack take place a second sacrificial point just before the multi point lock case incorporated with the unique and patented snap secure clutch system, totally blocks access to the internal mechanism of your door lock preventing entry.
This "Snap Attack" is THE most common method of entry due to the speed of entry (usually less than 30 seconds) and the lack of skill required.
The Avocet ABS Secure MK3 also incorporates bump resistant technology to prevent entry by the "Bump Key" method. The bumping protection includes telescopic pin technology, a magnetic bump resistant pin that works in the opposite direction to all the other pins and 6 additional second level trap pins, giving 15 pin protection against bumping.
Although we believe burglars do no bump or pick locks as a method of entry, the ABS Locks we sell contains all the requirements needed to stop all methods of attack.
Euro Secure's MD is the leading authority in the UK on Lock snapping. Having been responsible for the design and development of the ABS lock and raising awareness and gaining the support of MP's such as Sir Alan Johnson to get the current standards changed and new one's introduced.
While other sites sell products that pretend to be secure but actually aren't you can be confident that we only sell locks we have actually tested ourselves, and that we are the experts in this field!
Other supposed anti snap locks have features that offer absoloutely no real resistance again common lock snapping methods. For example we tested the Cisa Astral S sold by others sites as a "reliable and effective solution" to combat lock snapping, and in a standard door in normal operation with nothing more than mole grips and a screw driver, the lock
failed in less than 40 seconds! We think this lock would only stop a burglar for 5 seconds more than a standard lock!
