Four Most Common Reasons for Locksmith Call Outs


There are many reasons for us being called by our customers, some are more common than others. We have put together some of the main reason why we are called out on a locksmith job so you know whether you should ring a locksmith when the time comes.

Locked Out of Your Home Or Business

Being locked out of your property can be a stressful experience but more often than not, a good locksmith will be able to get you back into your property without damaging anything. Some locksmiths, unfortunately, do not have the necessary skills to gain entry to your property without causing damage, which in turn, can cost you more money in replacing locks or a window or door frame. Make sure you ask if it’s possible to gain access without damaging anything before booking your locksmith.

Lock Changes or Lock Upgrades

Bin this day and age, locksmiths are frequently called out to change locks or upgrade locks. Many properties within the UK have sub-standard locks fitted to the property which might not comply with insurance regulations. Having non-insurance approved locks means in the event of a break in, your possessions may not be covered. So a lot of our lock changes are people looking to have snap-safe or insurance approved locks fitted to their homes. Another reason might be if someone has moved into a new property and they want all the locks changing, it’s important when you move home to have all your locks changed as the previous tenant may still have keys to your property.

Lock Repairs

Lock repairs are another common call out for us, over time through wear and tear some locks may fail but in some cases we may be able to repair the lock for you rather than replace it. We specialise in uPVC lock repairs as well and door realignment. So if you have a faulty locking mechanism or uPVC door issue then feel free to contact us.

Burglary Damage

Unfortunately burglaries are on the rise in Leeds and the most common method of entry for a burglar is to snap a lock on a uPVC door, which can take a matter of seconds to gain entry to your property. The best way to defend yourself against lock snapping is to have us install insurance approved, snap-safe locks such as Ultion locks.

If you experience any of the issues mentioned above or any other problems with your home security, then feel free to contact us on 07456 080054 for a free no obligation quotation. All our work is fully guaranteed for 12 months.
