What are the Different Types Of Locks?

Here at locksmith Leeds we deal with and have dealt with many types of lock in the last 20 years. But none have been so frequent as theses three types of lock, and those types are;

  • Mortise Locks – Usually opened with long L shaped keys, these locks are usually found on the front doors of houses and are tough, the British standard states that these locks cannot be broken into without a key. These locks are the toughest and most expensive. Can only be unlocked with a key from both sides.Locksmith installs locks
  • Euro Cylinders- Euro cylinders are usually found on Upvc doors and are opened with a smaller flat key. These locks are the cheapest and easiest to replace. Locksmith Leeds reminds you to check that you’re using anti snap and anti pick locks when replacing any of your euro cylinders. Sometimes opened with a thumb tab from the inside and a key from the outside but also can be both key inside and out.
  • Night latches – Night latches are often found as second locks on front doors, or in flats and apartment buildings, this is to ensure that anyone can leave the building should they need to in an emergency. They are opened with a thumb tab from the inside and a key from the outside. Sometimes we don’t need to break these locks to gain access, depending on the gap size in between the door we could be able to use a technique called carding to gain entry through one of these locks.

All of our locks meet the relevant British standards if required, which means your insurance cover is still valid even after we’ve changed your locks. If you have any questions you wish to ask us about the type of locks we use then feel free to call our office staff who are trained so they’ll know anything you ask them about this work.

Locksmith Leeds New Lock Installations

Locksmith Leeds deal with loads of different types of job every day and that means we have to be prepared for all sorts of locks doors and other issues too. From our emergency locksmith service to our Upvc door work with cylinders and mechanisms. Locksmith Leeds really needs to be prepared for it all on a daily basis.

One of our lesser requested but much harder services we provide is our new lock installations. These differ from normal lock changes because where as with a replacement all it’s about is taking the old lock out and sliding the new lock in it’s place, a new lock installation differs because the locksmith has to make space in the door for the lock to go in.mortise locks installation by Locksmith Leeds

Firstly the locksmith must place the lock in the center of the door and drill and carve the space out for the lock body to be placed in the door. Once the lock body is in place it must be tested and then work can begin on the door frame to house the striking box.

The lock body is the part of the lock that has the key hole, the lock mechanism and the deadbolt when the lock is unlocked. The striking box is where the deadbolt goes once the key is turned and the lock locked. Call locksmith Leeds today!

Deter Burglars This Summer

As the weather gets warmer we are all tempted to throw open our doors and windows a little more to cool ourselves and our houses down. And while this is very pleasant, locksmith Leeds is warning customers not to get lax with their security this summer. Burglars will seize on any opportunity to gain access to your home, and even a window left ajar is enough to do this. Say you have left keys, a phone, a wallet near the window. All they will need to do is reach in and grab it or open the window wider from the inside.

snapped keys lock out situations

We have some tips for you to avoid these happening and stay safe this summer. Leeds locksmith finds these tips very simple but effective, as all it takes is being a bit mindful.

When you’re out in the garden relaxing or playing with your children, always keep the front windows of your house on ventilation or closed. This ensures that no-one reaches or climbs in without your knowledge and you can keep an eye on the back as you are outside.

When you’re coming to the end of the day, keep a check on which windows are open and where. It’s easy to leave doors open to the garden as people are in and out, windows left open without being closed as you are enjoying the cool breeze coming through your house. When going to bed, get into the routine of checking all your windows. It’s okay to keep them on ventilation, but don’t leave a window open overnight. This is inviting burglars into your home.

And many burglars may be opportunistically watching your home in the day and making a note of which windows are open, when. Follow the advice of locksmiths Leeds and stay safe.

Locksmith Leeds Mechanical Code Locks

Here at locksmith Leeds we deal with all sorts of different types of locks, keys, doors, and different situations to do with those locks, keys, and doors. Locksmith Leeds deals with the most common types of lock with speed and efficiency but what about the less common locks? Same applies to uncommon locks, take the mechanical code lock for instance. The mechanical code lock works by having a series of buttons labelled with numbers and a few letters and a cancel button, once you press a button on a mechanical code lock it will stay pressed in until you press the cancel button or until the right code is entered and you use the handle. If you use too many or too few numbers and letters the door won’t open and if you get one of the numbers or letters wrong then you’d have to press the cancel button and start again.Code locks by Locksmith Leeds

When installing a mechanical code lock you can set up the code to any code you like, and some mechanical code locks you an get make the code sequential so you not only have to enter the right code to use the handle but you have to use the right code in the right order to gain access. Mechanical code locks are good for when you’re trying to keep costs down in an office with lot’s of staff, whilst a good mechanical code lock won’t be cheap it will always be cheaper than supplying 20 staff members with a key and then having to replace the locks and supply those 20 people with a new key every time one get’s lost. Instead with a mechanical code lock you can just tell your staff the code for working hours and you could have saved yourself a fortune.

Tips on protecting your home

tips by Locksmith LeedsOne of the most common questions your locksmith Leeds is asked, is for simple hints, tips and tricks to secure your home against the possibility of burglars and unwanted visitors.

Thankfully, there are a range of measures that we believe every homeowner should carry out periodically, and especially when they move house.

One of the most important things to do is conduct an exterior review of your property. This includes assessing entrance points to your property for weaknesses. The best way to do this is think like a burglar. You need to get yourself in the mindset of using anything you can to break into your own home. If such tools are available, then you should lock them away or get rid of them.

Likewise, if you are unsure of the strength of the security of your windows and doors, you should take the time to make small investments which will bolster their strength. Check if any locks have been incorrectly fitted. If a euro cylinder lock is exposed, then it will be easy for a criminal to remove. Make sure it is fastened and secured with an escutcheon plate.

You may have good, secure locks, but could you make any further, cost-effective improvements? Installing a security alarm will mean should anything happen while you are away, your neighbours will be alerted to irregular behaviour at your property.

Also your locksmith Leeds can install bolts and bars to your doors to ensure that should anyone manage to get through your secure lock system, there is a strong piece of iron preventing them from getting any further.

Home security really does not have to be expensive. If you are unsure about the quality of your inspection, your locksmith Leeds proudly carries out routine security inspections to allow you to assess any weaknesses in the security of your property and make the requisite changes if so desired.

Emergency Locksmith

Here at locksmith Leeds we know how much of a pain it can be when you find yourself locked out and we know it can be even more of a pain to find someone who’s available quickly and can get you back into your home.

Well you don’t have to worry about that anymore as if you’re in Leeds or the surrounding area and you’ve locked yourself out, or just have any problem with your locks then we’ve got your back and your lock worries are soon to be a thing of the past, with locksmith Leeds you know you’re going to get someone professional and more importantly you know you’re going to get someone fast.Locksmith Leeds

We train all of our staff to our high level of standards and this is so that you, the customer knows that if we send someone out to you that you’re in good hands, and what’s more than that is we also CRB and fully vet our staff before they can join our team, so not only do you know you’re going to be looked after, you also know that the person being sent out to you is a trustworthy person.

Deterring burglars

Locksmith Leeds advising When considering your home security, the most important to do is first and foremost focus solely on the basics. It’s all well and good thinking about the added benefits you can invest, but it means nothing if your basic security isn’t up to scratch. The most common doors found on homes are wooden and UPVC. If you have the former, your professional locksmith Leeds recommends investing in at least a British Standard mortise lock, whilst if you have the latter we also recommend investing in an anti-bump, anti-snap lock. Of course, you may be unsure if your property already has this. If you are in this predicament, a quick call to your helpful locksmith Leeds should be able to clear this up with a quick diagnosis.

However, simply by having the appropriate locking mechanisms and security doesn’t guarantee your property will be safe 100% of the time and it would be naive to think that’s the case. As such, it’s worth considering what deterrents may be appropriate for your property to ensure no one even considers targeting your property in the first place. Of course, what may be appropriate is likely to depend on the nature of your home and your budget.

One very helpful deterrent can be man’s best friend, your pup! Of course, your locksmith Leeds would never recommend such an investment purely for security purposes. However, a well trained dog can be effective at deterring criminals if they get excited and bark when someone that doesn’t live at your property approaches. Not everyone has a dog, or would even like one, so what if there was something which replicated our canine friends? Although you miss out on the years of love and affection, a barking dog alarm which is motion activated can produce the same effect without the hefty vet bills to match!

It’s not just sound which is important when considering deterrents, but also sound. Your locksmith Leeds always recommends ensuring your property is well lit. This isn’t just important when you’re at home, but also when you’re away for a period of time. Your property is less likely to be targeted if it is visible from the street and to your neighbours.

Home Security

Here at locksmith Leeds, we’re very serious about your home security and we think you should be too. We attend many jobs where the tenant or owners had wished they’d made improvements to their home security systems before they’d been burgled. Don’t be like them, make changes now before someone tries to take your possessions.

Home security for most homes will start in the garden, we like to think

burglar deterrent light

of this as a path from the unknown straight to your home, it’s up to you whether you want to light that path up for trespassers or make it hell for any would be burglars. Whilst we think that home alone traps might be a bit too fr locksmith Leeds does recommend a external light with a motion sensor to warn any potential thief’s away!

Secondly, we’d recommend checking the materials and locks on your doors, and then with this information doing some research into the types of break ins most affiliated with your type of door and lock, for instance if you have a UPVC door the biggest threat to that with regards to people trying to break in would be lock snapping. Check if your UPVC door has anti snap locks and if it doesn’t fit it with some, the cylinders are very cheap and worthwhile having.

Lock Fitting

Locksmith Leeds lock fittingTraditional locking methods and security have proved popular for centuries and rightly so. A British Standard mortise lock still remains one of the finest locks on the market in terms of both appearance and security, not to mention the range of doors and premises in which they can be fitted. However, technological developments have opened up the security market to a whole host of other ways of securing your home. A fully-qualified locksmith Leeds will always be able to assist you with high-tech electrical installations, including CCTV so that you may monitor the people who come and go, to and from your property.

Here at locksmith Leeds, we’re proud that all our professional locksmiths are fully-qualified to work with electrical locks. This means that if you’re searching for a locksmith Leeds team to assist you with installing innovative security on your premises, then you needn’t look any further. We can also provide double glazed door lock. What may be available for your property largely depends on the type of property and the doors which act as entrance points. If you’re unsure, a ring to your local locksmith Leeds will allow you to determine the options available to you going forward.

Small business owners have been particularly fond of investing in electrical locks. For example, electric strikes are increasingly popular for shared offices. You have probably seen similar locks on shared flats where, linked to a telecom, the tenant of the property can let you in by simply pressing a buzzer instead of having to turn a lock. These are similar to electromagnetic locks which can be programmed in a similar manner and have a incredible amount of force holding the door shut. If you’re concerned about your security these are excellent options to consider as not only are they robust, by removing the keyhole outside intruders literally can’t pick the lock.

British Standards And Insurance

here at Locksmith Leeds we have a duty to use the right locks, if we don’t use the right locks to replace your existing locks or if your locks aren’t the right locks right now, your insurance company can refuse to cover you if you’re burgled.

This is why we use only British standard locks. Obviously no one can tell how good a lock is just by looking at it, that’s why the British Standards Institute have several tests for locks, using the most popular ways of breaking in a certain type of lock, if the lock passes then it’s awarded with a British Standards Kite Mark, meaning it’s up to par with the British standard of lock, which is also what insurance companies are looking for. There are a few different types of standard for the few types of different locks and their purposes, these are;

Locksmith Leeds

  • BS3621 – This covers mortise locks and cylinder rim locks that use keys on both sides of the lock. This standard is to say that this lock is safe from intruders unless they have the key.
  • BS8631 – This covers all locks opened on the outside by a key but able to be opened on the inside without a key using a thumb tab or something similar. Used in flats and apartment buildings to ensure anyone can escape in an emergency.
  • BS10621 – This is the standard for doors that can only be locked with a key from the outside, these can be opened from the inside without a key but only unless the key hasn’t been turned in order to remove this feature.

So listen to our highly simple tips and try putting them in place to mitigate the effects of a stressful life. These tips will save you stress in the future because your future self won’t be locked out as much! What we find that busy people are highly organised and dedicated in all areas of their life, but they don’t take the time to prioritise their security or make their routine in the morning easier for themselves, preferring to rush out the door to get to work.

While Leeds Locksmiths understands that you’re busy, and we are always on call whenever you need us, we’d encourage you to try these tips that we know have worked for our customers in the past. These include putting a bowl by the door for your keys. Getting into a routine of putting your keys in one place when you come through the door is essential. Otherwise, you’re likely to rush out in the morning without them. All it takes is a minute of forgetfulness and that’s it, you’re locked out. Also, you’ll probably notice your stress levels drop in the morning because you’re no longer rushing around trying to find your keys, but already you know where they are. Put your keys in your line of sight every morning and notice the difference. Give your future self a break, says locksmith Leeds.

Choosing the right burglar alarm with Locksmith Leeds

Locksmith Leeds think that every property, be it domestic or commercial, can benefit from the right alarm system. that being said, not everyone needs an alarm system with all the bells and whistles. So what system is best for your property? The Locksmith Leeds team can give you some great advice if you call us today, but before that read what we have to say about the different types of systems and the pros and cons to each of these.locksmith leeds burglar alarm

The most basic alarms simply set off sirens when they detect movement within your property. These are useful if you know your neighbours, as a neighbour is likely to note that the system has been triggered and call the police. However, you can also get systems that send notifications to your phone or email. This is a useful backup as it means you know immediately if there has been a problem and you can act accordingly. More complicated systems can even connect directly to a security service. If your alarm is tripped, the security service will call you checking it’s not you, then will send the police to your home to see what is going on. This provides an added sense of security for many homeowners, but is often quite expensive.

People often ask whether to get wired or wireless systems, and this is largely up to you. However in general wired systems are slightly more dependable, but will be more expensive and harder to install. The benefits often outweigh the cons though. With all alarm systems, you get what you pay for, and so higher end ones will come with more features, but you need to consider whether these are necessary for your home. In any case, the locksmith Leeds team can help install any alarm system for you today!

Garden Furniture Security

Garden securityIt’s very probable that you’ve considered a variety of ways to improve the security of your home and the safety of the items within it, but what about those in your garden? Garden furniture is commonly left out, meaning it is much easier for a thief to steal. Locksmith Leeds suggest getting a garden shed for your smaller items, such as bench cushions, and using this to store anything you can. You’ll also need a sturdy lock for this shed, as otherwise you might as well just leave it all out in the open! Standard key locks or tumbler pin locks will both work on most sheds, but ensure you get the right size – the biggest possible that fits, the better. Putting items in your shed will also help prevent them from weathering.

Bigger items, such as tables and chairs, should be stored inside as much as possible. However in some situations there’s simply not the space! Well, then you can do a number of things to ensure that your furniture is kept on your property. One simple thing is to engrave your postcode and house number into the furniture – if spotted by a thief, they will be less likely to steal these items as they are easy to track back to you. Locksmith Leeds also suggest bolting your furniture into place if possible – this will not only prevent it being taken, but will also prevent it being moved and climbed in order to get into your second floor windows, which are more likely to be unlocked. And finally, the most commonly stolen garden item is BBQs (and lawn ornaments!) – these should be kept out of sight as much as possible, as if they can’t be seen then most thieves will not go looking for them.
