Lock snapping is the preferred method of attack by burglars now. There has been many television reports to highlight this situation and a quick look on You Tube will give you more exact instructions on how to carry out this method.

How is this actually possible?

The euro cylinder was made to make lock changing easier in a multipoint lock which are found in uPVC doors, which were becoming the standard fitting by the double glazing market.
