LOCKING DEVICES GUIDE
Replacement is a very important process on which depends the safety of the entire home. Therefore, the choice of the mechanism, as well as its installation, must be taken extremely seriously. As for the installation of the locks, it is best to order it from trusted locksmiths who have solid experience and special skills. If you’ve been in a search for a reputable company, you have come to the right place. Remember, installation is only part of the whole process. Attention should also be paid to the choice of the desired mechanism so that it reliably protects the premises from unexpected guests. There are many types of locking mechanisms; we will consider the ones that are used most often:
Traditional mechanisms. The main advantage of such products is the ease of handling and reliability of all mechanical parts. Plus, they are cheaper compared to other types. However, such a mechanism is vulnerable to an intellectual picking which can be done with the ordinary master key.
Lever-tumbler mechanisms. These devices are considered one of the most reliable among all existing modern door locking mechanisms. They have already managed to prove themselves excellently in banks and other financial institutions. Therefore, the installation of lever-tumblers is becoming popular in private households. The reliability of such devices is determined by the number of levers — special parts that hold the bolt when the key is turned. Lever-tumblers cannot be opened with a master key.
Cylinders. They have a fairly simple design; however, at the same time, cylinders provide maximum protection for the living space and are easy to use.
Mechanisms with rekeying option. This type can include both variants of the locking mechanism at once: lever and cylinder. So, for example, if the key is lost, there is no need to completely change the mechanism in a lever-type device; it is enough to rekey using the tool that comes with the product. The code is reset, and a new combination is made with different keys. In further operation, it will be necessary to use a new set of keys that come in a package.
FITTING OF LOCKING DEVICES
The fitting of new locks may be required in a variety of cases. The procedure will become a necessity in case of a failure of an old locking device, installation of a new door, move to another place of residence, loss of keys, etc. If the installation of new devices into wooden structures doesn’t present particular problems, the installation in metal structures requires certain skills, experience, special knowledge and the use of professional equipment. We are ready to help you solve any door related problem.

We provide services in strict compliance with the current laws and regulations. A gain of entry is carried out only upon confirming your ownership of the premises. So please have the papers ready. Otherwise, our specialist will proceed with the opening only in the presence of a police officer or neighbour. If there are doubts about the legality of the process, we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
06.How long does it take for a locksmith to open door locks?
As soon as the locksmith arrives, he will assess your situation and inform you about the services you need. Standard cylinder type locks take approximately 5 to 10 minutes to open, while more sophisticated lock models such as 5-lever mortice deadlocks can take up to 30 minutes.

09.What is a bump key?
Bump keys are special keys made from an original copy or a blank with a profile for a specific type of cylinder. They were never meant to become a tool for thieves to open even the most secure cylinder locks silently, without damage or visible traces; but unfortunately, bump keys are easy to acquire. If you have concerns about the safety of your premises, we will be happy to help you in choosing and installing a burglar-proof lock.
10.What is lock snapping?
Lock snapping is one of the methods used by burglars to enter your home by physically snapping the cylinder in half. This method doesn’t require special skills or experience, only brute force. Euro profile locks are vulnerable to this type of forced entry. You can secure the premises by installing anti-snap locks in your uPVC doors. Call us for a free consultation.
