Locksmiths are tradesmen that have been trained to work with different types of locks both to unlock them in a lock out or lock in situation and install them. Locksmiths often use different techniques to open, repair and fit locks to different types of doors and buildings.
On average it will take a locksmith around ten minutes to open a door, however this time frame can vary depending on the type of lock, some can be opened in around 7 seconds whereas others can take up to 45 minutes.
A minimum of one lock is necessary to have adequate security measures on your front door, however any reliable security professional will tell you that two locks work better than one. You can have a standard BS3621 lock fitted and use a deadbolt to work alongside it, this will vastly improve your overall security measures and you may even find your insurance provider offers you discounts on your premiums.
Burglars seek out properties that they can see have weak, old or damaged locks on windows or doors. If a burglar feels your lock can be either snapped or bypassed easily this will make your home the perfect target.
Yes, alarms are very good at deterring burglars from your property, however, it is important that you have other security measures such as high security locks as using an alarm on its own will not prevent a burglar breaking into your property.
The time it takes to change a door lock can vary, it is much dependent on the existing lock and type of door that you have. Replacing the lock can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Locks that are being fitted to a door without an existing lock often take longer.
On average your local locksmith in Sheffield will charge around £65 per hour, some locksmiths may charge a slightly smaller fee for any additional hours, and the cost of the parts needed will often be included in the price quoted.
There are a few things that you can add to a window to improve its overall security. Quality locks and restrictors work well, you can also install window alarms and cameras. Another good security measure is having laminated glass installed, this allows only a one-way view so that the layout and position of valuables in your property can’t be viewed from the outside.
Although deadbolts are a quality lock and incredibly difficult to open once locked without the use of a key, any good locksmith will be able to gain entry to a deadbolt. This is because locksmiths have the skills, experience, knowledge and tools to make this possible.
Yes, it is always advised that whenever you move into a new property you have all of the external locks changed. This means that it is only you that has a copy of the key as you can never be sure of how many are still in circulation from previous occupants.
