Mul-T-Lock support for National Home Security Month
Security specialist Mul-T-Lock is proud to announce that it will be supporting this year's National Home Security Month (NHSM), bringing attention to the importance of home security amongst consumers and driving business for local locksmiths across the UK.
The annual campaign, which this year is themed 'Protect what matters most', runs throughout October and works to offer advice, break down technical jargon, and debunk security myths for UK homeowners, all whilst helping to drive demand for security products and locksmith services nationwide.
Recent statistics have shown that around 92% of domestic burglaries are made via a door, with a forced lock and an unlocked door being the top two most common methods of door entry. The most recent burglary report from the Office of National Statistics proves that there is much more to be done to educate consumers on home security, particularly when it comes to properly securing external doors of a property.
Experts at Mul-T-Lock are advising that to prevent unwanted access, homeowners should change locks every five years for added peace of mind, or as soon as possible after moving into a new home.
Highlighting the cost and time saving benefits, as well as the unrivalled advice homeowners can get from an approved locksmith's extensive knowledge and experience, Mul-T-Lock is putting a big focus on consumers getting in touch with their local locksmith each time they want to change their locks.
Mul-T-Lock hopes to use the NHSM campaign to keep homeowners informed on the best security products and practices, and when it comes to choosing which door cylinder to opt for, Mul-T-Lock offers the original and the best. The brand is promoting its coveted Break Secure 3DS anti-snap cylinder, specifically designed to help locksmiths meet consumer demand for high security locks.
Having excelled in recent tests, the Break Secure 3DS has surpassed the British Standard Kitemark BS EN 1303:2015 test by over a million cycles, as well as meeting TS007 3-star standard and undergoing rigorous independent testing by the Master Locksmiths Association to meet the Sold Secure Diamond SS312 standard - offering the very best protection in lock security.
The Break Secure 3DS cylinder offers three separate lines of defence, enabling locksmiths to offer customers an innovative solution with an unrivalled level of security that will deter even the most resolute intruder:
1. A sacrificial end - designed to snap to protect against lock-snapping; the most common form of entry to a property
2. Bump resistant - many cylinders can be easily 'bumped' (inserting and tapping an illegal key to release the cam and open the door), but the Break Secure 3DS is proven to resist this
3. Drill resistant - engineered using high strength material and robust construction to withstand prolonged drilling
In addition to these lines of defence, the Mul-T-Lock Break Secure 3DS cylinder boasts anti-screw and anti-pick protection, with the key or thumb turn still operational internally, even after the cylinder has been attacked. The brand also offers a one keyed house solution encompassing the Break Secure 3DS cylinder, with patented keys that only Mul-T-Lock Approved Locksmiths can cut.
Claire Blakemore, Managing Director for Mul-T-Lock UK comments: "National Home Security Month has become such an important event in the calendar, due to the good it does for homeowners and the security industry as a whole. Figures show that burglaries spike by as much as 25% in the autumn and winter months, which is why we want to encourage homeowners to reach out to their local locksmiths and act now.
"Mul-T-Lock's Break Secure 3DS cylinder offers locksmiths a key weapon in the battle against domestic break-ins. In fact, we are so confident that this product will provide maximum protection to a home, that we're offering a full ten-year guarantee."
