Securing your home or business premises properly is an important matter if you want to prevent unpleasant situations such as burglary. There are many methods for this, of which core pulling protection is in fact one of the most important. Many homes in the Netherlands are secured with a cylinder lock. However, if this lock is not equipped with core pulling protection, burglars can relatively easily lift your lock out of the door and thus have free access to your building. You can then choose to secure your cylinder lock with core pulling protection. Holland Locksmith can of course carry out this quickly and professionally for you, so that you can close your home or business premises with a certain feeling when you leave the house.

Is core pulling protection mandatory?

Our services are mainly intended to make people feel safe about the security of a property, but not always necessary. Core pulling protection is an exception, however, since 2016 core pulling protection has been made mandatory for all new-build homes in the Netherlands. The situation is that many older homes are still prone to burglary. Core pulling is still a common method of quickly entering a home, which you prefer to prevent and exclude as soon as possible.

The importance of core pulling protection

It should of course be the case that everyone feels comfortable and safe when closing a home or office building. The reality is somewhat less positive: on average, just under 200 burglaries take place in the Netherlands on a daily basis. If your house is equipped with a cylinder lock without core pulling protection, burglars can remove your lock from the door with a very simple screw by screwing it into the cylinder. The burglars will be in your home within minutes. Are you going on holiday or is your office closed to staff and visitors for a longer period of time? Then a burglary is easily done if you do not take action.

Below is a video from the police demonstrating the core pulling method.


Core pulling protection consists of a special anti-core pulling cylinder or an anti-core pulling fitting. This prevents burglars from applying this technique, because this cylinder or the batter can handle a pulling force of up to 1.500 kilos. If you would like an extra safe solution, we also offer alternative solutions, such as a multi-point lock in combination with extra security. In any case, core pulling protection ensures that burglars through this door no longer enter with this technology. The cylinders we use are of course provided with the SKG quality mark and approved for the Police Quality Mark for Safe Living.
