What makes a good locksmith?

I’m often asked, “How did you become a locksmith?” “How long have you been doing it for?” And “Do you need any qualifications to be a locksmith?”   These three questions can be put together into one broad one. What makes a good locksmith?   Firstly A “good” locksmith is only as good as there last job. If they complete 10 jobs to an excellent standard and the 11th job is completed very badly they are a bad locksmith.   In my experience it takes 100 jobs to get a good reputation and 1 bad job to get a bad reputation. So… Consistency. This is one of the first things that make a good locksmith.  Always finishing the job to a high standard. Even if it ends up costing you money. Customer satisfaction is key!   So back to the three questions. How did you become a locksmith? For me I was educated in the trade by a family member. But others learn on a course. But just like driving a car, you don’t truly learn till you’re out there on your own trying to do the job. The lock out in the dark and rain at 3am springs to mind. There is no one to call for support and you have to crack on and get the job done!   So the “how” isn’t as important as you may think. Anybody with common sense can pick up the very basics in a few weeks but it takes a lot of jobs to become a locksmith.   How long have you been doing it for? I’ve been just locksmithing for...

We think it will never happen to us and the facts show that burglaries are Statistically down but what should you do if that shocking and for most people frightening thing happens. You walk through your front door and your world has been turned upside down. A stranger has broken into YOUR home and ransacked it. Draws emptied cupboards left open family jewellery taken. Your feel shock and anger. But your mission is to remain calm and deal with the situation in hand. First of all.

Anti Snap Locks

Anti Snap Locks

As of late, home-owners have been warned by various police forces to be increasingly aware of the vulnerability of the current locking mechanisms fitted in front doors. There has been a sharp rise in burglaries using the method of “Lock Snapping/Cylinder Snapping”, which requires no specialist tools or knowledge and the West Yorkshire Force (Euro Cylinder Burglary Developments) have revealed that 25% of current burglaries have been committed using this method of entry. As an example, the area of Kirklees, West Yorkshire, is now recording a third of all burglaries being committed with entry being this method, we suggest all home-owners read their Crime Prevention Advice. Lock snapping is a method which involves breaking the cylinder, meaning it is possible to work the lock to open. It is common place to believe that the fact your door has multiple points at which it locks, means that the door is secure, however it is imperative you realise that all locks are operated by the one cylinder making it the weakest point and if broken then all locks are effectively useless. Previously this problem has been restricted to the Yorkshire area in the main, however we are now seeing the method adopted further afield and police from many different areas giving warnings. See the Thames Valley Police for more information who are providing advice on the issue. Lock Snapping / Cylinder Snapping prevention. With all of the information now reaching us from local authorities, we can conclude that this is a real threat to homes all over the country. It is important that you are aware of this threat, it is...
Fire or Burglar?

Fire or Burglar?

Where do you keep your keys at night? Do you even have a ‘Place’ where everyone in the house knows that this is where the keys are kept? This may sound like a strange question but it is very very important when considering both the security and safety of yourself, your family and tenants that this question is answered. Here are a few fire related figures for 2011-2012 (2013 stats have yet to be released), in 2011-12 there were 308 fire fatalities in the UK, 76% of these were in dwellings and 53% were due to having been overcome by smoke, gas or toxic fumes. Now, this is by no means saying that all of the reasons were because the person/s in the household could not find their keys, but a percentage will be. Nowadays there are a lot more safety precautions in the new house builds, however there are a lot of doors that still require their door to be locked by key from the inside. In 2013, Milton Keynes alone recorded 1,667 burglaries. That is an average of 139 per month. Making sure that the security of your house is at it’s best is paramount. I don’t have the exact figures from these burglaries but you will all have heard a story of a burglar managing to reach in through a letterbox or cat flap and hook the keys for the house or the car from either the keyhole itself or a nearby table etc. So where do you keep your keys?
