Lock repairs

If you have locks that are broken or not working properly, you could suffer the inconvenience of being locked out, or worse, the weak point could provide access to a potential intruder. Have your locks serviced before this happens and save yourself money and inconvenience.

With time temperature shifts, houses settle and move up and down and doors can change depending on the weather. This can dramatically affect how a latch or deadbolt matches up with the hole on the doorframe.

Safe & Secure Locksmiths can adjust the strike plate or lock for you in this matter. In some locks it is also possible to replace parts or re-pin the lock so you can keep using the same keys.

If repairing the lock is not an option, it should be replaced to ensure the security of your family and your belongings.

Lock replacement and fitting

Exterior door locks should always be changed if:

  • ·         You move house
  • ·         A rental tenant leaves
  • ·         You lose your keys
  • ·         The lock is faulty and cannot be repaired

Choosing to have the lock change done by a professional can make a real difference in terms of your safety and security. The most important reason is the correct installation of the lock is what provides your security. Secondly, a damaged door lock would be considered a weak point to a potential intruder. It is also easy to damage a door when removing or installing a lock. One wrong move with a tool and your door may need a new coat of paint or even a new piece of glass.

Calling Safe & Secure to replace or install your locks will result in properly installed locks to ensure your security.

FREE Security Surveys

If you're concerned about security, need to ask some questions, or just need a locksmith to come by and evaluate your existing locks, please give us a call or e-mail us anytime.

There are many things you can do to feel secure in your own home or business, and these things don't necessarily mean you need to purchase the most expensive locks on the market. You have many options. Keep in mind that the locks you have on your home are only as secure as the environment around them.

The best way of assessing whether your home or premises is adequately secure is to take advantage of the Safe & Secure free security survey. We can let you know if the locks you have are already adequate, we can advise you on secondary security devices such as window and shutter locks, door viewers and security chains and outline the best ways to improve your all round security.

Secondary security

Installing secondary security measures will considerably improve the security of your property. The majority of burglaries are opportune with intruders entering through open windows, patio doors or with duplicate keys. Inexpensive solutions like fitting window locks or door viewers could make the difference in whether or not you are burgled.

External Doors

All external doors should be fitted with high quality locks. Mortise and sashlocks provide the best protection against forced entry including picking, drilling and hacksaw.

Sliding Patio Doors

Patio Doors are a favourite point of entry for burglars and provide an ideal escape route for the removal of possessions, particularly bulkier items which cannot easily be handed out through a window. To prevent this happening, the opening section of sliding patio doors can be secured with patio door bolts at the top and/or bottom.

Back/Side Doors

Having good quality locks and bolts installed in a weak door may not be advisable. Safe & Secure Locksmiths can advise whether your doors and frames will carry them. For example, some mortise security bolts can be fitted at the top and bottom of the door and can only be operated from the inside.

Door Viewers/Security Chains

You can also improve the security of your external doors at little extra cost by having security chains or similar types of door restrainers fitted - this stops the "foot-in-the-door" attack. You can identify your visitor before opening the door by having a door viewer installed.

Window locks

A high percentage of all break-ins are through windows at ground floor level. Burglars often find them an easy way to get in, e.g. by tripping the catch from the outside with a knife blade, or by removing enough glass to reach and release the window catch. Windows left open provide the easiest entry of all for the burglar.

All accessible windows should be fitted with key-operated window locks. Whilst ground floor windows are the most commonly used points of entry, windows on upper floors accessible from flat roofs or drain pipes should also be fitted with locks.

Having window locks fitted is not that expensive and there is a range for every type of window to choose from including wood, and those with metal, aluminium or UPVC frames. Safe & Secure Locksmiths can advise on the most suitable locks to suit your needs.
