25% of all burglaries in Sheffield are from lock snapping and as locksmiths in Sheffield the effectiveness of this method of entry is unfortunately encountered every day.
The method of lock snapping involves breaking the cylinder to then manipulate the lock to open. Whilst you may think that all the multi locking points on your door make it secure, it’s important to realise they are all operated by the cylinder – this is the weakest point and if compromised all the locking points are rendered useless.
Lock snapping has become a real threat in Sheffield but can be avoided, wit the help of Precision Locksmiths by installing the appropriate anti snap locks.

Brisant Ultion Locks
Sold Secure Diamond
The highest level of security standard that other 3-star anti-snap locks want but don’t get. This is the rigours of the TS007 3-star but with added aggression, and tested by an MLA locksmith. The tester is allowed more access around the lock, more tools, freedom to break the material surrounding the lock and the ability to pause the clock to consider a different tack – Ultion will also be tested to this standard.
This lock comes highly recommended by Precision Locksmith Sheffield and is widely used as our go to cylinder for customers wanting the extra security provided.
TS007 3 Star
The Ultion lock has been tested to the needs of the British Standard TS007 3 star standard, without having to be paired upwith an expensive high security handle. When Ultion is locked it is the actual center cam that gets independently secured, not secured to the internal plug – this means that even when the key is left on the inside of the lock, Ultion is still secure.
Underneath the key sit 6 pins. Each of these pins have specific jobs, there are 2 steel anti drill pins, 3 brass mushroom anti-pick pins, and one anti-bump. But then, above the key Ultion is housing a further 5 pins – creating an astonishing 294,000 key combinations.
20 HARDENED STEEL ANTI-DRILL PINS
Hardened anti drill pins have featured in existing high end locks for a while. Ultion however has 6, in both sides of the body (because it is non-handed!). So the burglar meets the first two in the sacrificial section of the cylinder. But if he decides to snap the lock first then go for the drill he’ll find his drill bit fighting against 4 more anti-drill pins. In the plug itself is a further 8 (each side of course) and two anti drill plates.
THE MOST SNAP RESISTANT CYLINDER LOCK
Normal, handed anti-snap locks, which only provide protection on one half of the lock, feature a single sacrificial line and focus on strength to make snapping harder. Except the strength is never enough to withstand the force leveraged from a burglar’s mole grips. On each end of an Ultion cylinder there are two sacrificial points, each designed to snap with quite easily, but more importantly in exactly the right place. When snapped the central cam is directly and independently locked – not to an attackable internal plug.
