Once the locking mechanism is exposed that is when the issue arises. As someone trying to get in your house can use a simple household tool.   

A way of preventing lock snapping is to increase your security as it can take only 9 seconds to remove a lock on a door without proper security. A method of Security could be the use of some smart home technology in the shape of the Ultion Smart Lock.
