Sold Secure Ratings

Sold Secure is dedicated to reducing the risk of crime by the assessment of security products. Established in 1992 by Northumbria and Essex Police with the help and backing of the Home Office. Sold Secure is now owned and administered by the Master Locksmiths Association (a not for profit trade association) and works from purpose built laboratories just outside Daventry.

Sold Secure Approval is classified into 3 main categories; Bronze, Silver & Gold (with an additional Diamond level for certain Caravan, Tracker & Cylinder Lock security products). The categories reflect the amount of time per test and the tools that are used and themselves vary depending on what test specification is being used. The higher the grading (Bronze is the lowest) the higher the security provided by the product.

Bronze
Products offer a good level of resistance against the opportunist thief and should be used in a normal risk environment.

Silver
Products offer a greater level of resistance against the more determined thief and should be used in a higher risk environment.

Gold
Products offer our top level of resistance against the dedicated thief and should be used in a high risk environment.

Diamond
The Diamond level is a specific extra-high security grade for portable wheel locks for the caravan markets, tracking systems and the new anti-snap cylinders.
