Reasons to replace locks.

 

Who has the key to your home .
if your home or business was previously occupied your never know who else has the key to your home or business when you take over possession, also another strong point to remember is you should always check to see if your locks comply with the insurance requirements BS3621 showing the british standard kite mark, all british standard locks BS3621 are more resistant to burglars due to the locks security features that are put into place.

Wrong size cylinder.
When locks have to be replaced, it can be for many reasons. For example many people don’t realise that they have the wrong sized cylinders installed, and it will actually void the any house insurance, in the case of a break-in also the cylinder is the most vulnerable point of the locking system it does not matter how secure or how many hooks or deadbolts you may have on your multi-point locking system it is the cylinder that will open your door in seconds having the right cylinder with the correct size will prevent a burglary to your home.

Any more than a 4mm overlap from the door is enough snap the cylinder and render it useless.

 

Snapped key.

When you think about just how much stress that thin strip of metal goes through on a daily basis, opening and closing locks, getting sat on in your back pocket and how many times do we all drop our keys? 

Its not a surprise to think that at some point a key will snap, while it’s in the cylinder. If it does and it cannot be removed or it was the only key, there is no choice but to change the lock.
