APECS AP — maximum level of security against forced entry methods of attack.

Lock snapping is the most common method of attack. THE APECS AP cylinder is specially developed to protect from UNAUTHORISED access by burglars.

The AP cylinder is engineered with a unique sacrificial point where it is designed to snap in a way not to allow further damage of the lock inside. The snapping occurs at a strategic distance from the cylinder’s vulnerable central section, leaving the burglar virtually powerless.

In the event of snapping, the home owner can still operate the door and exit the property due to the lock's unique mechanism, which is engaged when the cylinder's external part is snapped off. This mechanism slides the clutch in place, preventing further external damage and manipulation of the cam, while securing the opportunity to operate the lock from the inside.
