Lock snapping the problem

What is cylinder lock snapping? It's a method of attack which can be used by burglars to break into properties which have a euro cylinder type lock which is often found on UPVC, composite and aluminium doors both in domestic and commercial applications.

The method involves breaking of the cylinder to manipulate the lock mechanism. Whilst the lock/door bolt itself may have many locking points it is the euro cylinder which operates the lock and is therefore a very important part of the security of the door.
