With the intention of highlighting the lock snapping issue and the solution on a nationwide platform, Neighbourhood and Home Watch Network has recruited Avocet Hardware as its primary sponsor for security products. The West Yorkshire firm manufactures the ABS Snap Secure lock which features a patented system that guarantees against lock snapping. Michael Tuck, Managing Director of Avocet Hardware, said: “The rise in lock snapping is directly related to the increased use of uPVC and other double glazed doors, which are fitted as standard with a Euro cylinder lock that can be snapped and removed in a matter of seconds using nothing more than simple DIY tools. Our ABS Snap Secure lock has been designed specifically to prevent this crime. It is one of the first locks of its type to be accredited the new British Standard TS007 (three stars), is the only retro-fit euro cylinder that has passed the new SS312 Sold Secure Diamond standard and is approved by Secured by Design.” Jim Maddan, Chairman of Neighbourhood & Home Watch Network, added: “As with any crime, prevention is always our goal which is why we are delighted to have Avocet Hardware on-board as a primary sponsor. The company has impressed us with its commitment to eradicating a criminal practice that is all too easy with a product that is proven to keep burglars at bay.
