Emergency Lock Opening

Locked Out



Emergency lock opening, this is probably the most common service for any locksmith, and for one reason or another you cannot get in to your own property and  you are locked out. Try not to worry, 95% of the time we can get you back into your home. Just call us on 07971 84 93 58 and we will do our very best to be with you as quickly as possible. (Please note we are not a 24 Hr service).

There are only two ways a locksmith will gain entry to your home, either non destructively or destructively, this cannot be known until we or any locksmith see's the locks on your door. In 9 out of 10 homes entry can be made in non destructive manner, this means that no damage will be done to the locks or the door; we have various techniques to bypass or circumvent the locks on your door to gain entry to your property. If you have lost your keys and you have no idea where they might be, sometimes the quickest way for us to gain entry will be to destroy the lock and then replace with a new lock and keys.

All external doors must be fitted with at least one British Standard Lock. Your contents insurance could be void with out it. If your door locks are more than 12 years old, you really should replace them, Locks certified to BS 3621 or BS 8621 can be recognised by the Kite mark on the product and is often a minimum requirement for home insurance policies, to meet your home insurance requirements please ensure that this is done.

Our advise is to replace the locks if you have just moved to a new property, as you don't know if spare keys have been cut and who has them, or if your existing locks show any signs of sticking, it could be an indication that the lock may be failing. The fitting of new door locks along with other forms of additional security will deter burglars from targeting your home. We will fit like for like locks or replace your existing lock with a high security lock if requested. Existing uPVC doors are fitted with a multi point lock with hooks and have a TS007 3 star cylinder and handle combination fitted. This ensures that the security is equivalent to BS 3621. Existing wooden doors are fitted with a night latch and or a mortice lock certified to BS 3621 or BS 8621.
