Earning their stripes
Tiger Locks has used ULTION locks to secured 59 doors on an estate in West Yorkshire in nine days after a spate of burglaries in the area.
The new-build estate had doors with basic cylinders that can be snapped in less than ten seconds.
Michael Brown of Tiger Locks, who actually lives on the estate, said: “I posted on Facebook about the poor standard of locks on everyone’s doors. After a recent incident, the enquiries flooded in and I’ve had to work weekends to cope with demand.”
Nick Dutton, CEO of Brisant Secure replied: “The latest figures show that 217,350 new homes were added to the housing stock for 2016-2017. We have to question how many of these had a 3 Star, Sold Secure Diamond door cylinder fitted on all exit doors, as locksmiths such as Tiger Locks are seemingly fitting them en masse after localised break ins.”
