In the event of a break-in

Please also include photos and any supporting files such as CCTV. 

  • Stevenswood will request for a Yale service engineer to visit the property within 10 working days of receiving your claim. The Yale service engineer will inspect which Yale components failed during the break-in and whether the terms and conditions of the Stevenswood Protection Promise have been met. 

Please provide access and cooperation in order for the Yale Technical Services Engineer to fairly assess the claim between 09.00-17.00, Monday - Friday. Please ensure there is someone over the age of 18 present during the inspection.

  • The Stevenswood Protection Promise guarantee must be registered at www.stevenswood.co.uk/stevenswoodprotectionpromise within 28 days of installation. 

  • The home must have been broken into via forced entry through a PAS 24 door or window which is covered by the Stevenswood Protection Promise.

  • The Stevenswood Protection Promise guarantee does not cover components from other suppliers other than Yale-approved components. If the break-in to the property is judged to have occurred due to the failing of any other component (for example broken glass), the guarantee will be invalid and none of the above benefits will be paid.

  • The decision of the Yale service engineer and Stevenswood is final in respect of: 

- Whether the door or window has been maintained correctly

- Whether entry has been gained through the failure of a Yale component 

  • When the break-in occurred, the doors and/or windows must have been securely closed and locked. Windows must not be left in the night vent position.

  • The guarantee is applicable to residential properties in the UK and Eire only.

Lifetime is defined as the number of years that the product is reasonably expected to last, determined testing and taking into account frequency of usage, the length of times than the materials used to create the product are expected to last, and whether or not the product has seen more use that deemed to be acceptable.
