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.

4 reasons why i love being a locksmith in Glasgow

As a self-employed local locksmith in Glasgow I can truly say that there are many benefits to my job. Not only do I get to meet loads of nice people as I scoot around from one call to the next, I also get to see all the lovely and not so lovely parts of Glasgow. And I could probably tell you a few stories about what I’ve seen. But the main benefits are that I don’t have to worry about the problems that arise for a lot of people.

Here are 4 problems that as a locksmith I don’t have to worry about:

  1. Being locked Out

It may be one of the worst scenarios you find yourself in; standing on the outside of your property, unable to get in.  It’s an easy mistake to make. Running out the door and slamming it behind you to then realise that you have left your keys hanging up inside.  Or perhaps you’ve lost them somewhere as you pulled things out of your pocket or bag. In many people’s minds that is actually worse as there’s the potential for someone to find them and use them if they have an identifying tag on them (like a keyring).

You need inside your property and so you might think about climbing through a tiny open window or smashing a window. But this could be risky and could cause injury or rack up hundreds of pounds worth of damages. The best thing to do is search on Google for a local locksmith who is reputable and knowledgeable. You’ll get a sense of this by reading reviews and actually speaking to them on the phone. The last thing you want is someone un-reputable dealing with your locks.

If I’m called, then my priority is to initially attempt non-destructive entry so that no damage to your property occurs. Other poorly trained locksmiths might cause unnecessary damage as they are not skilled enough.

Thankfully as a locksmith, I don’t have to worry as although I may lock myself out, I definitely know how to get back in.

  1. Broken Keys

After years of use, your trusty keys may begin to weaken or they may get bent. They might then not fit into the lock anymore or they may snap inside of the lock. If this happens, you will require the help of a locksmith to extract the broken part and replace your key. Attempting to extract the broken piece yourself if it is stuck could result in you causing unnecessary damage to the lock.

As a locksmith I make sure that my keys are in tip top condition and I can make new ones thanks to my key cutting apparatus which I keep in my van. If you call me I’ll be able to cut you new keys too.

  1. Moving Home and Replacement Keys

Moving to a new property is usually a positive thing to do but it is recommended that you change the locks in your new property as soon as possible. This is a precaution in case the previous owners had cut extra keys for extended family or even neighbours in the event of them being locked out. For security sake you want to start afresh and know exactly who has a spare set of keys to your home.

I haven’t moved home in a while but I would change all my locks if I did without question.

 

  1. Damaged Locks caused by Burglars

Probably the worst nightmare for a lot of people. Coming back from holiday or a night out to discover that your property had been burgled. A common entry point for burglars is through uPVC doors and windows because they often have weak points. A burglar knows how to get in via a UPVC door as uses a lock snapping technique. This can occur if the Euro cylinder within the lock is of inferior quality.  Then it literally takes only a few seconds for the lock to be snapped and entry gained.

I only fit snap safe quality cylinders in uPVC doors. The maximum star rating is 3 stars which is the recommended insurance level. I also add 2 star door handles, and by doing so bring the whole locking system up to 5 stars –near impossible for a burglar to gain entry via lock snapping.

 

I’m glad I’m a locksmith and I’m able to help lots of people. If you need any help with the problems I’ve discussed be sure to get in touch. I will usually be able to reply to any locksmith emergency within 30 minutes and you can be sure you are getting a reputable and trusted locksmith (see my video for more information about me!).
