‘Here are a few tips that can help you avoid the cost of a locksmith service.
Some locks we have come across haven’t been installed properly and can be opened with a piece of plastic like a credit card. This is because the lock is too far away from the strike (which is the part that the latch goes into on the door frame). This is can be easily fixed so that you can avoid a costly break in or damaged lock mechanism.
If you are concerned, take a photo and send it to us, we can let you know, saving you time and money.
Coloured aluminium keys wear out the brass pins inside a lock. It is a fairly common experience that after a while you will find yourself jiggling the key to get it to turn. The solution to save you money on replacing the lock is to use coloured plastic rings to remember which key is which and have quality keys cut.
We hear lots of stories about people getting ripped off when getting emergency locksmith services. To save money ask for a quote before the locksmith arrives so that there are no surprises. It sounds really simple but lots of people get into a panic and don’t check first.
