  • Repairing locks: Locks may become damaged or malfunction over time, and this service is designed to restore them to their proper functioning. A locksmith can identify the source of the problem and make the necessary repairs to ensure that the lock works smoothly and securely.
  • Replacing locks: When a lock is beyond repair or needs upgrading, our locksmiths can replace it with a new one. We can advise on the best type of lock for the specific needs of the property, and install it to the highest standard to ensure maximum security.
  • Emergency work: This service covers any urgent lock-related situations, such as being locked out of a property or experiencing a break-in. Emergency locksmiths are available 24/7 to respond to such situations promptly.
  • Key cutting: This involves duplicating keys, whether it’s a spare key for a family member, a new set for a new lock, or replacing lost keys. Our locksmith uses precise cutting tools to create an exact replica of the original key.
  • Re-coding: This service involves reprogramming electronic locks or key fobs to ensure they function as intended. It may be required when the codes have been compromised or the system needs updating.
