This is a very good question asked by many of our customers & its Emergency Local Locksmith job to keep our customers safe.
Why upgrade my locks? Let’s explain, now a Composite/Upvc door has a multi point locking system with a mechanism inside the door and is operated by a Euro Cylinder lock, this euro cylinder lock is what needs to be updated. Thieves have found a weakness in these old style locks & needs changing quickly.
As you can see from the old style lock it has no extra security measure to prevent any type of attacks from buglers (as shown in the next picture).
Just by looking at these two Euro cylinder locks you can see the improvements made by the manufacture to secure your home effectively. Over the last 10 years many homes have been burgled & targeted due to old locks not been upgraded for years. The police & insurance companies highly suggest to upgrade your locks sooner than later to prevent your house being targeted.
