Over the past few years there has been a rise in the number of dodgy locksmiths. These people promise fast and cheap locksmith services, but in reality are unqualified to do the job. They end up damaging your property, causing you unnecessary stress and costing you more money in the long term.

Yes, this is no problem for a skilled locksmith. Although you would usually have keys cut from another key, if you have lost your keys or your key is severely worn – it is possible to have a key made from a lock.

This can be achieved by either disassembling the lock or making an impression of the key hole.

No. A Locksmith will be able to rekey the locks to your house and if required, cut copies of the new keys.

After a general discussion about the customers’ requirements a locksmith will often request the customer take some photos of their locks and text or email them so they can then ascertain what locks are in the doors prior to visiting the premises. If locks aren’t broken then they won’t need to be replaced.

Avoid touching the key or lock as this might cause the key to push itself further into the lock.

It’s best to call a locksmith immediately and let them know what has happened – they’ll be able to quickly come out, remove the broken key and cut a new key for you on the spot.

Absolutely, the term locksmiths use for having one key that operates all the locks in your home or workplace is ‘keyed alike’.

The practicality of having one key to open your home or workplace over a large bunch of keys can’t be overstated.

When we key alike your home or workplace, we first check to see if your locks are in good condition and functioning correctly, we’ll then disassemble the keyed cylinders and replace the small internal parts then service and lubricate the entire mechanism.

When we perform a ‘rekey’ of your locks we’ll re-code all of the locks to new keys so everything is keyed alike.

We can even take a customers’ existing sample key which operates one lock and key that alike to the other locks in the premises.

Most people won’t be able to tell if a standard key has been copied as there are no restrictions on a locksmith or hardware shop making a copy of these keys.

A special product that locksmiths offer is a ‘Restricted Key’, this is a key that can only be issued and copied by the locksmith who first sets this product up for their customer. Only an authorised person can request a Restricted Key to be copied which offers a higher level of security and peace of mind to the customer that extra unknown copies are not in circulation.

Each key is individually numbered and issued by the owner of the system. You can also ask your locksmith about a Restricted Master Key System.

A Master Key System is mechanical access control system. Your office, residential or commercial property can be configured so a Grand Master Key can access all the doors and locks on site. Sub keys can be assigned so only specific doors and locks can be opened by designated key holders. This ensures that access granted is given only to specific individuals and can ensure higher security to your premises.
