Lock Upgrades: Cheap Locks v’s Expensive

What Is the Difference Between Cheap and Expensive Locks?

The answer is relatively simple, although they will both do the job, one will do it better and more efficient than the other, and as the price goes up so does the quality and level of security it provides. For example, the standard Euro cylinder, it will lock your door and offer some level of protection against potential intruders, however there are many thieves out there that know exactly how to bypass this cheaper cylinder and it will not defend against, picking, drilling or snapping! 

When you compare the cost of a low quality cylinder lock to a much higher quality snap safe cylinder lock then there really isn’t that much in it, especially when you consider the added protection and security it will provide both your family and valuables.

Make Opportunistic Thieves Turn Away

An opportunistic thief is exactly what it says on the tin, an opportunist. They will take the first opportunity they see for a quick and easy in and out burglary. Deterring these types of thieves is an on going challenge for the security industry as they are always learning new tricks and methods of gaining entry, so it is our job, as locksmiths and professionals in the security industry to keep up to date with the latest security breakthroughs and advise all of our customers on the added benefits of higher security locks and also what other security measures they can put in place as added deterrents such as security lights, and alarms, door chains and other such measures to improve the overall security of a property and increase the chance of an opportunistic thief turning around and looking for a different property to target. 

Any Door Can Be Broken Into With Enough Time And Skill

Unfortunately, for experienced thieves, given enough time they can gain entry to almost any property if they so wish. This is why locksmiths are working hard with other sectors of the security industry to ensure that everyone has a high quality lock installed that will help prevent, picking, drilling, snapping and bumping making it a much more difficult task for a would be thief to gain entry to a property. It is a fact that an opportunistic burglar will not spend much more than ten minutes trying to gain entry to a property, and the more noise there attempt at entry is causing the more likely they are to just walk away rather than risk getting caught, so high security locks can be the difference between a successful break-in and an attempted break-in.
