There are usually two instances for homeowners to call out an emergency locksmith. Once is if the lock has been broken by someone forcing entry, the other is where the homeowner can not get into their own home. Locksmart can help in both circumstances.
If someone has broken into your home by forcing the front door. Whether you have a cylinder (Yale) lock, a mortice lock or a multi-point locking system built into a UPVC door, Locksmart can either repair or replace the lock. Cylinder locks are the most common locks on front doors, they are inexpensive and if they are damaged then we can usually repair them. Sometimes it is cheaper to replace the lock than try to fix it. With some locks, Locksmart can adjust the cylinder so that you can continue to use your existing keys. Particularly useful for large households where there are a number of people who legitimately have a key to the door. Mortice locks are usually damaged by someone either bending the bolt by trying to kick the door in, or they have something forced into the lock (super glue is a common cause of problems). Locksmart can always replace a mortice lock, we can even sometimes repair the lock, but this can often be more expensive and time consuming than simply replacing it.Locks in UPVC doors are more complex than more traditional locks. Because of the multi-point locking system, these are much harder to break in to. Because of this burglars don't usually bother trying to force a UPVC door and if they are determined to break in will find a different route. Locksmart can replace locks in UPVC doors as well as ensuring that the rest of the locking system is in good working order.
Apart from repairing the lock, Locksmart will make repairs to the door and frame to make your home safe and secure.
