reasons for calling a locksmith

Whatever your reason for looking for a locksmith, Lockout 24/7 can provide the swift, professional service you need. Naturally, nobody wants to be in need of a locksmith, but when the need arises it’s great to know you have one you can rely on any time of the day.

The reasons people call us vary greatly for both domestic and commercial properties. But there are some common problems that we are called out to address, so here we will go over the 4 most common reasons for calling a locksmith.

You are locked out

It’s rare to find someone who has never found themselves locked out of their property. Unfortunately, this often happens at the most inconvenient of times. When this happens to you, it’s handy to know that you have a local 24-hour locksmith on hand to come out and help.

If you find yourself locked out, get in touch with Lockout 24/7 right away. We will dispatch an experienced, qualified locksmith who can attempt to use a non-destructive entry method to get you back inside. It’s good to know you should be able to regain entry to your property without any damage to your door or lock.

Broken door locks

As locks become older, they often deteriorate and cease functioning properly. If this happens to you, your local locksmiths can come to you and repair/replace the lock quickly. If you don’t do this, you risk being locked out of your property or making it vulnerable to burglars ready to exploit a weakness in your security.

At Lockout 24/7, we can repair or replace all types of locks for residents and businesses around London. Whether your door lock is loose, misaligned, jammed or anything else, we can help.

Broken window locks

Window locks can wear down over time, just as door locks can. This can make them less reliable for security purposes. Just as in the previous example, when your window locks are no longer functioning properly you should contact a local locksmith right away.

It is recommended that you examine your window locks every few months to check that they are functioning properly. Companies like Lockout 24/7 can repair or replace a wide range of window locks, including:

  • Window sash stoppers
  • Sliding sash stop-locks
  • UPVC window swing locks

Don’t compromise on the security of your home or business.
