Most times, thieves get into our homes by snapping the lock cylinder of the lock. This enables them to gain access but spoils the lock. Anti-snap is a burglary-preventive measure found in high-security locks to stop intruders in their tracks. The lock cylinder of anti-snap locks is designed to not snap. Ant-snap ensures utmost security for homes and office doors. There are two rating standards for anti-snap locks, namely, the TS007-3 Star and the SS312 Diamond. If you live in crime-prone neighborhoods, anti-snap locks are fitted to your front, back, side, or sliding doors to ramp up security.

First of all, anti-snap and anti-bump are two different styles of lock offering different security levels too. An anti-bump lock prevents the pins in the lock from going above the shear and giving the intruder access to your home. Let’s explain this a little further. When a thief picks your lock, the idea is to lift the pins in the cylinder to a particular level. When a lock is anti-bump, it prevents some of the pins from moving above the shear, thereby resisting the intrusion instrument and stopping access. This ensures your door remains shut and undamaged in the process.

An anti-snap locks returns back to its original structure when you try to snap it. Think of it as a rubber band. When you stretch it within the elastic limit, it will snap back to form. The same theory works with anti-snap locks. When pressure is applied, it quickly snaps back, frustrating the intruder and gives up.

We get asked this question a lot. While it is not illegal to own and use one on your premises, finding one on your person can implicate you in a burglary case or make you a suspect in a crime.

A key cutting process should take 20 to 30 seconds maximum by our locksmith. However, if the key is unique and must be cut to code, it will take longer. Additionally, key cutting depends on the key and the marks on it.

We know the person calling in these situations is the owner most of the time, but for security purposes, we always request our locksmiths to insist on an ID before the job. We also ask the homeowners or car owners to request ID from the locksmith before any task.
