The 6 most known break-in methods

Is your lock sufficiently secure?

When it comes to physical security, traditional locks have always been one step behind. Below we have listed the 6 most commonly used burglary methods that involve the door’s lock. Use it to assess if your current door’s security is up to date! If you combine the Loqed Smart Lock with security door furniture, you are fully protected against all below listed burglary methods.

Lock pulling / Plug pulling [kerntrekken/cilindertrekken]

After putting a screw in the keyhole, one can pull the screw and remove the complete cylinder lock from the door.

Nowadays, new or renovated houses are being protected by installing security door furniture that protects the cylinder from being extracted. However, even this protection can already be removed by burglars.

The Loqed Smart Lock protects you better because it does not have a keyhole, and therefore has no attachment points for screws.

Lock snapping
By breaking the cylinder lock (sometimes after first removing weak door furniture), this is one of the fastest methods to break in to a house.

Loqed protects you because it’s cylinder can always be perfectly adjusted to the right length, and therefore cannot be broken by a wrench.
Lock flipping
If your door has no movable handle on the outside, you could close the door without actually locking it. Opening such a door is a matter of seconds by using a plastic card.

Loqed always fully closes the deadbolt (night lock) after you closed the door, even when you go out for just some groceries.
Wire or cord through the mail slot
If your door has a mail slot or space below the bottom, one can lift the door handle down if your door was not locked with the deadbolt (night lock).

Loqed always fully closes the deadbolt (night lock) after you closed the door, even when you go out for just a small errand.
Lock bumping / Bump keys
If a burglar knows the brand and type of cylinder lock you are using, he can create a special key that can open any cylinder lock of this type.

Loqed protects you because it does not have a keyhole.
Lock picking
Either with a special lock picking gun or lock picking tools, this method opens the door without damage.

Loqed protects you because it does not have a keyhole.
