House Lockouts

key-in-house

When you are locked out of your home there is no reason to break a window or or to damage your door. The best option is to contact The London Locksmith and solve the problem with ease and efficiency. There is no reason to weaken the security of your home unnecessarily.

The London Locksmith uses several different methods to make sure we take the path of least resistance and be certain your home is unharmed in the process. Most locks work of a pin and tumbler system, and can usually be picked by a experienced locksmith.

Another method of opening a pin and tumbler lock is with the use of a bump key.

A bump key works on the similar task of moving the key pins so that the driver pins meet the shear line. Grooves are made in a key blank so that when turned as the key is struck (or bumped) it will temporarily allow the plug to be turned. Again, this method has the tool act as if it were a key and does not harm the lock.

If the lock is not simply pin and tumbler (such as a smart key) or is unresponsive to picking and bumping for some other reason, the lock will need to be drilled. The drill is set to the location of the pins and a hole is punctured in the device. The drill will break the pins that hold the lock in place and allow the locksmith open the door with the turn of a screwdriver. It is important not to drill your own locks because novice drilling may result in damage that renders the device unworkable. Examples of these problems are things like drilling past the pins and breaking the bolt of the lock so it does not retract; an accumulation of metal particulates may lock and jam the pins so that they cannot reach the shear line; etc. It is safer for your home to have these methods used by experienced locksmiths.

Changing Locks

There a number of reasons that would prompt homeowners to want to change their locks. It could be because they have started to take notice of some of the warning signs that it is time for them to change their locks or it could be because they have decided that it is time to upgrade the security of their home. Whatever the case may be, homeowners should strive to contact a professional locksmith who will walk them through the process of changing their locks and will help them do it in a way that continues to keep their homes as secure as possible.

Some warning signs are more apparent than others. As a homeowner, you should make it your top priority to contact your trusted London locksmith in the event that you have been a recent victim of a burglary or a break-in.

Lock Installation

In some cases locks do fail or break, and it is important to replace them quickly and correctly in order to protect your home. The starting process is similar to removing the knob or handle in lock rekeying, except that in this process the rose and spindle (the rod connecting the lock on one side of the door to the other lock on the opposite side) will be removed from the door. The bolt will also be replaced by unscrewing the bolt guard (also known as housing) and removing the bolt. Once this is done, the holes may need to be adjusted depending on the difference of the new or desired lock. The reassembly is a cautious reversal of the disassembly process, with special attention kept to the fitting of the internal mechanisms. With the new lock installed, the homeowner can rest easy knowing that their locks will open and close as desired, and keep the building and its residents safe.

Smart Lock Installation

When homeowners are making the decision to switch over to smart locks, it is important for them to take every aspect of their homes into consideration so that they do not end up leaving their homes vulnerable in the pursuit of making them more secure. There are many homeowners who are apprehensive of switching over to using smart locks and we understand this apprehension.
