This method involves snapping the lock cylinder in two and removing the outside part. This allows access to the mechanism and the door can be unlocked. With an anti-snap lock from Lockxpress East Midlands, your standard lock, is replaced with a high security cylinder lock, which has deliberate weak points. When a person attempts to snap the lock, the weak point breaks, leaving the core of the lock in place and secure.
Lock bumping, is the use of a specially adapted key, which is inserted in to a lock and then tapped gently with a heavy object, like a hammer. This forces the pins in the core to “bump” up, causing the lock to unlock. With an anti-attack lock from Lockxpress East Midlands, one of the pins rides much higher than the others, meaning when someone tries to “bump” it, the key won’t be able to touch it, preventing it from unlocking.
Lock picking is one of the old methods of gaining entry to a property or safe. It uses a set of different picks and tools, to feel out each pin, and push them up once all the pins have been found. This method takes time and considerable skill and normally leaves no trace. The anti-attack lock from Lockxpress East Midlands, is protected by anti-pick spool pins, which jam the other pins into position if a pick is attempted.
