    will you need a locksmith this Christmas?

    It’s the time of year when you have to start thinking about Christmas shopping and those festive celebrations, as well as all of your normal day to day tasks.  You might have to fit in a trip to the shops before the school run. There might not even be time to go home before your work do. All these changes to your routine mean that it’s easier to make mistakes. You put on a different coat or pick up your evening bag for a night out. Then when you get home late you realise that your keys are in the pocket that’s on the other side of your front door.  Even worse, you might return to find that you’ve been the victim of a burglary.  Will you need a locksmith this Christmas? Here are our tips for steps to take if you’re faced with an emergency.

    Don’t panic

    If you’ve arrived home to find yourself locked out because your keys are missing it can come as a bit of a shock.  The important thing to remember is that there is always a solution. Firstly, think about where there might be a spare key.  We don’t recommend leaving spares under a flowerpot but is there someone else who could let you in? Depending on the time of day you may be able to call on a friend or family member who has a spare key.

    Of course, your keys might not be missing. We’ve been called out to people who let themselves into the house then returned to the car to bring more shopping in. The door slams behind them with their keys on the inside.

    What if it’s a break in?

    Being broken into is an awful feeling, especially at Christmas.  If this happens to you your first step should always be to call the police. They’ll want to examine your home to see what evidence they can find.  Burglars can get into your property in a few different ways.  They may have caused damage to your locks or UPVC doors to gain access.  Whatever the damage you’ll want to make sure that your home is made secure as quickly as possible. That’s where a specialist locksmith can help.  We offer a 24 hour service and can replace locks and even repair UPVC doors whenever you need us to.

    Burglaries can be particularly common around Christmas when burglars know there’ll be gifts in the house.  We can come and check your locks to make sure they’re up to the job to give you peace of mind.

    Call your local locksmith this Christmas

    There are lots of locksmiths advertising online.  We’d always recommend choosing someone local. They can get to you quickly because they’re nearby. They’re also more likely to know the area so you won’t have to take phone calls from a locksmith who can’t find your house when you just want to get in out of the cold.  Within our area, we know that we can usually get to any call out within 30 minutes. Sometimes it isn’t even that long.

    A local company will also usually have local staff.  You won’t be put through to a national call centre. The person who answers the phone will be just down the road.  In our case, Denis takes all the calls. He’s a qualified locksmith so he can give you the best advice straight away.

    Have you ever wondered what locksmiths get up to in their spare time?  Well I thought I would update my blog as I have not had the time over the last few weeks and let you know about the locksmith training I’ve been doing recently. My aim is to keep training to be considered the best locksmith there is in Glasgow.

    Last month an email popped in informing me of an open weekend being held at Keyprint in Edinburgh.  As I had not attended the last one I thought I might pop along on the Sunday, so I filled out the necessary forms and received my confirmation email right away.I was looking forward to this as it gave me the opportunity to meet fellow locksmiths and to also try out some new non-destructive opening tools.

    In the locksmith industry the term “try before you buy” is gospel and as these tools cost hundreds of pounds each the chance to get hands on with them before parting with a fair chunk of cash is a must.At the event there were many well knows manufacturers of locksmith tools but the ones I was interested in were manufactured by GJ Locks, Ultim8 tools.

    There were several 1-hour courses I could select but I went for the ones most relevant to my working week. I opted for the non-destructive entry of British standard 3-star euro cylinders. This course was being held by Steve from Ultim8 tools, a master locksmith with 30 years’ experience.

    The 2nd course I enrolled in was the non-destructive entry to mortice locks using decoders:

    • Decoding the Securefast old and new
    • Decoding the Era Fortress
    • Decoding the Union Strongbolt
    • Decoding the Chubb 3U
    • Decoding the new Yale British standard mortice locks

    First up was the course with Steve at Ultim8 tools.

    Avocet ABS Lock Demo

    He demonstrated their pick for the Avocet ABS lock. This lock is a British standard Sold secure police and insurance approved lock. It does not get any higher accreditation than that yet armed with this pick he was getting the lock open consistently in minutes. A nice tool and so easy to use.

    I must confess I have used this tool before when I attended a 4-day course in January at MPL in Wakefield, so I knew how it worked and I also knew the times and results possible.

    Next up from Ultim8 was their Brisant Ultion pick. Brisant offer £1000 if this lock is defeated via lock snapping. Again this lock is as good as it gets with regards to accreditation.

    Now I can pick these locks (sometimes) however with their tool “sometimes” does not come into it. It’s so easy to use and the results are superb. We got a play with both picks and I have to say I am impressed by both.

    Time for a quick bite to eat which Keyprint had so generously prepared then it was on to the non-destructive entry part of the day.

    I was keen to go to this course as I am going down to Leeds 15th/16th September for some training with the man himself Geraint Jones of GJ Locks and as I already own several of his tools I thought this a good opportunity to fine tune my picking skills.

    Chubb 3U Mortice Locks Demo

    First up was the older Chubb 3U mortice locks. These locks are years old but have been upgraded throughout their lifetime, so it was interesting finding out how to differentiate old from new.

    The trainer demonstrated the non-destructive opening technique using the safe ventures pin and cam decoder. He had the lock open in no time with no damage. The safe ventures pin and cam decoder lets you make a makeup key once the lock levers have been read which enables you to open the lock. If the client has lost the keys and has no spare key, then with the make up key you can cut a spare key and the lock can then continue its stellar service.

    GJ Locks Fortress Decoder Demo

    Next up was the GJ Locks Fortress decoder. This decoder also decodes the Union strongbolt and the new Yale British standard locks. I have one of these decoders but if I am being honest some of the readings I get are not so accurate. The decoder was demonstrated by a MLA member and it opened the lock without any problems. I will get a through demonstration at the weekend when I am down on my course. These decoders are very expensive and it’s a tough call when buying them as you might never see that specific lock that the decoder works on.

    It’s also worth noting that any locksmith tool you buy you cannot just stick it in the back of the van until it’s needed. Every locksmith tool I have takes hours, days and weeks to master. Practice as they say does make perfect.

    Anyway, that’s all from me for now.

    I’m away to decode some locks.
