The above video shows a well known locksmith tool being used to circumvent the security of just about any lever handle lock.
They also show a simple and effective method of prevention to this bypass method.
Now, most homes employ both a handle and a deadbolt to ensure an entry door is secured but the quantity of online videos explaining how to pick locks and the availability of lock picking tools online can make the job of providing security more difficult to those whose job it is to be concerned.
Luckily for some, there are products available that can mitigate the ease in bypassing these and similar types of locks.
Our very impressive range of Serrature Meroni products are designed differently to mainstream knobs and levers. Meroni make push/pull levers and press button knobs that never require a handle or lever to be twisted/turned.
The Meroni Pigio range are a very unique, high quality designed lever type entry handle that would make the above entry method more difficult to achieve.
The Meroni Combina range are a beautiful version of the entry knob that exceed ADA laws and are very easy to install and use.
The Meroni Nova range are the company's original product offering and are widely used across Europe and are starting to be found in the USA and Australia/New Zealand.
The Meroni Forma range are also very stylishly designed, being oval shaped knobs. Again, they use push buttons to activate the mechanism, meaning no twisting or turning of the knob ever occurs.
By having no twisting or turning of the handle/lever, less wear occurs on the mechanisms. Less wear means longer lasting products. Longer lasting products means value for money.
We plan to show more on these fabulous Meroni lock ranges in upcoming articles.
