Damaged Locks

There are many reasons why you may have to call an emergency locksmith in the cases where your locks may be damaged or have failed. Here are a few of the examples when you may have to call a 24 hour locksmith.


Malicious Damage

If an intruder has damaged your locks, or there has been an attempted burglary which has resulted in your door or window locks being vandalised it is advisable that you get these replaced as soon as possible. This is to make sure your property is secure again. If there has been an attempted robbery our Liverpool locksmiths will be able to advise on additional security measures and give you various security options such as snap resistant locks, to help you make your decision. We also offer security reviews in which our local locksmith engineers can assess your current level of security and if need be recommend changes or additions that can be made to further protect your property from intrusion.

Weather Damage to locks and locking mechanisms

As we all know weather in the UK can be unpredictable. Unfortunately the constant change of weather and temperature can take its toll on our locks and the internal works of our doors and windows. When you turn your key in the lock if it feels strained or hard to turn, it may be best to seek out a Locksmith to service your locks as forcing the key can cause damage to the lock or the mechanism. It can in some cases cause the key to snap and become encased in the lock. Locksmith Key Qualities can service the lock to make sure it is working correctly, and this will cost a fraction of the price of a broken lock and prevent emergency situations such as the key snapping.

What is the problem when my key turns but the lock bolt does not operate?

If when you turn the key the Lock is not engaging this usual means that the internal mechanism of the door is damaged or faulty. If the key is turning this will generally mean that the lock itself is working but it has disengaged with the mechanism. Our Locksmiths will come to your property and fully demonstrate how the lock should work and what the issue is. All our engineers carry a large range of stock for all door types which means we will be able to repair the fault there and then.
