The lock on the door is a security guard for your property, sense of safety and privacy.

There are many reasons to consider repairing or changing your locks – do not wait until it’s too late!

When is it worth repairing your old lock?

When your old lock begins to malfunction, gets stuck, gets flimsy or grinds with a turn of your key, it’s a first sign to start acting fast. Get in touch with your local locksmith to come over and fix the lock or replace its insert. Repairing the lock before it breaks completely helps to avoid the stress of suddenly being locked out and having to wait outside the door for help. However, if it happens, quickly type “emergency locksmith services near me” in your phone and wait for local locksmith to arrive and replace the front door lock for you.

What if it’s too late?

Sometimes it is not worth fixing your old doorlock and, in order to avoid further problems and costs, installing a new one is a better option. Also, when you move into a new property, it’s good to have new locks installed just in case.

Do not forget that even if your old lock seems to be working well, it is very much likely that it doesn’t comply to security standards advised by the Police nowadays or is not compliant with British Standard BS3621. Contact your local locksmith to choose between Police approved euro cylinders, rim cylinders and mortice locks, including 5 lever mortice locks, uPVC door locks, anti-snap locks and multipoint locking systems.
