Here at KJ Locksmiths, Bristol, we do a whole lot more than merely picking open locks. We’re also experts in lock repair and replacement, UPVC doors, fitting new British Standards locks and emergency door opening. Here are six of the most common reasons why people find they need our services.
To let them back into their house
We’ve all been there - standing outside of our property, usually in the rain, with the door firmly locked behind us. It can be tempting to try and pick your locks yourself or to try and break-in to another area of your home, but this can cause more harm than good to your locks, and so it’s often best to call out a local locksmith who can regain you safe entry to your property.
To replace their lost keys
Keys are frustratingly easy to lose, but if you lose your key outside of your home, then you have potentially left yourself open to being burgled. If you lose your key, then we can help to change your locks and to cut you a new set of keys so that your property stays secure.
To retrieve a broken key
Over time, keys can wear thin and eventually they may break when inside of your lock. Sometimes, the broken piece of the key will come out of the lock, and all you need is a simple key replacement, but other times, the broken portion of your key can get jammed, and you will require the services of a locksmith to get it out without damaging your lock. We have a number of tricks up our sleeve to retrieve damaged keys while leaving your delicate locking mechanism intact.
To secure their new home
Receiving the keys to a new property is extremely exciting, but who knows how many other copies of the key the previous owner had laying around or gave to their friends and family. To secure your new home, it’s often advised that you replace your locks on move-in day so that you can sleep soundly knowing that no one can enter your property.
To reset electronic keypads
You may not be able to lose the key to an electronic keypad, but you can forget the code. We don’t just fix traditional locks, we also provide services for electronic locks too, and can reset and re-code your pin code if you find yourself locked out.
To fix or replace damaged locks
Like keys, locks can quickly become damaged over time due to bad weather, attempted break-ins or simply over-use. Sometimes, the damage can cause a lock to seize shut, in which case, a locksmith can help you to gain access to your property, and other times the lock can stop locking, in which case a locksmith can replace or repair the lock to allow you to safely secure your belongings.
These are just six of the most common reasons why people may need the service of an experienced locksmith.
