a week agoPhoned Martin when I couldn’t open my dining room door. Although it wasn’t an emergency he arrived within 45 minutes and replaced the faulty mechanism. Very reasonable price. I’ve already had him back to replace some window locks. Definitely recommend.

If you have a cat/dog flap fitted do not leave anything valuable or any keys within fishing distance of them. I have seen some dog flaps large enough for a small person to crawl through!
A high percentage of people moving in to a new home do not replace the locks even though they are often unaware who had a set of keys previously. Do contractors, cleaners, previous owners or tenants have a key or a set of keys to your home? I also visit many customers that don’t have keys to use there own mortice locks and they rely on a Yale type night latch for security. If the door was forced or slipped open with a card by thieves and the mortice lock wasn’t locked at the time, the home insurance company may not pay your claim.
Special offer on 5 lever BS Mortice Locks supplied and fitted while current stock lasts.
Open over Easter hols at very reasonable rates. Locked out, don’t smash a window until you get a quote !!

Called to many locks recently that have failed due to corrosion and poor maintenance or being over oiled attracting dirt to stick. It does no harm to spray all latches, bolts, hooks, rollers and any other moving parts annually including bearings on sliding doors with a non stick lubricant, many cycle chain sprays are ideal as they are designed to prevent dirt from sticking.
If you’d like us to checkout your failing lock mechanism, why not give us a call on 07905 938849, or email us here.
Sash jammers are a good additional security measure for UPVC windows and doors though are pretty useless unless securely fixed into the aluminium inner profile. Some UPVC doors and windows are purely hollow plastic and impossible to gain a solid fixing for sash jammers making them pretty useless as additional security.
A few tiny test holes will confirm what is inside the profile for fixing. Aluminium profile isn’t magnetic so cannot be determined in that way either.
