Locksmiths generally work with locks, keys and security systems. They can repair broken locks or replace them, they can remove broken keys and they can create key duplicates on site either with laser key-cutting solutions or via traditional methods of key cutting. In addition, they can also install CCTV and alarm systems or systems that can monitor fire or loss of power. Some locksmiths also specialise in safes and access controls, as well as in auto and boat locksmithing which is particularly helpful to those stuck without their boat or car keys.
Can’t find your house keys? There are many emergency locksmiths out there who offer an emergency lock opening service, even after normal business hours. If keys are locked inside, then the door can be opened via a method called non-destructive entry whereby special tools are used to help open the door. In this manner you may keep the same cylinder and you’ll be able to continue using the same keys.
If your lock is destroyed or broken and needs to be replaced, your locksmith may ask you to provide one yourself. Your safest bet would be to purchase one from an ironmongery or hardware store where you can also find any other door hardware items you might need. Install the Yellow app on your phone so you can quickly find the nearest hardware store. With the app you can easily see which shops are open, while you can also find all necessary contact information.
The most common types of locks are the door knob lock, the combination lock and the deadbolt lock, however, you need to make sure that you choose one that will fit your front door. For example, mortise locks are usually placed in a pocket that is cut into the door. If possible, take approximate measurements of your old lock or if this is not possible, check the size of the pocket on the edge of the door. Once you’re at the ironmongery or hardware store, you may also need to make duplicates of the keys.
