Most locks are Chubb or Yale and these are good quality locks. Our daily experience of these locks also makes us familiar with them and as such we can overcome problems such as snapped keys or jammed locks. We can help you get back into your property without too much fuss or expense. We have the skill and the authority to carry lock picking tools which will mean that you do not have to break windows or damage doors. Because we can gain entry with ease you will be asked for proof of identity as authority to enter any property. Remember: "A good locksmith is as good as having a key" for non-destructive and low cost home re-entry.
Being burgled is distressing and we advise that the locks / tumblers are replaced with insurance approved locks for all external doors. Burglars can, and do, steal spare keys and they may re-visit you to steal new items you have replaced. We will remedy this by replacing the tumblers/locks and carry out a free security review - if requested. We issue insurance approved receipts.
Should you loose your keys many home insurance policies allow you to claim for both key and lock replacement. This is for security reasons when the use of your lost keys would likely cause an even bigger insurance claim. Your home security is at risk unless you have your locks replaced.
Doors which jam and stick will cause excessive stress on the metal of your door key. You may need to pull the door key with greater force to close the door or you may find that the lock does not function smoothly. Either way, the stress on the key can cause the key to snap inside the door lock. We can resolve this problem and make the lock/door workable again. We may also help by releasing the stress on the new key by taking away the sticky, jamming door problem.
Did your last tenant copy the keys even if they were unaware the keys being copied? It's nice to believe that we can trust everyone but you can not be 100% certain of anyone so it is simply wise to take a minimal level of precaution. If you suffer from squatters taking possession then it will cost you thousands in court costs and legal fees to evict them. While being asked to leave they claim on the green form for legal aid while you will pay 100% of your costs. We recommend that landlords retain multiple sets of keys which can be swapped between tenancies. If you record which set of keys were issued then you have better control of this risk. The cost of our services are so reasonable that it may be simpler and better to fit new internal tumblers and dispense with the trouble of retaining multiple sets of keys.
A Master Key Lock System is a one key opens all system which allows for individual locks or groups of locks to be opened by a separate key. This type of lock arrangement is normally used in Schools. School security and caretakers may use a master key while teachers may be restricted to a particular zone or area of the school. The concept of master keys and zone based group keys is also a useful concept to secure large industrial or office complexes.
We understand the construction of UPVC double glazed units and can retro-fit window locks and window restrictors. UPVC windows need extra care because their internally sealed panel units can crack and shatter if the window lock fittings are badly mounted upon the window. Let us fit your window locks for you and we can supply and fit according to our free site survey and your needs.
All our mortice locks are British Standard 3621 insurance approved. Please don't invalidate your insurance by purchasing and trying to use the cheaper locks without BS 3621 approval.
