Common problems with upvc door locks are:
I cant lock my door, if this is the case then St Helens Locksmiths would ask you to open the door and try locking it when its open, if you can lock it when its open then the problem is not with the lock but the alignment of the door with the door keep found on the door frame. But if you cant lock your door even when its open then its likely to be one of two things either the cylinder has failed or the multilock has failed.
If you have handles that are spinning around then Locksmiths St Helens would have you check both handles if only one is spinning then it sounds like its just an handle that has failed and either you need to replace the handles or that the spinning handle is not connecting with the spindle, however if both are spinning around then the likelyhood is that the mulitlock as failed.

Locksmith St Helens Garden Security
Locksmith St Helens recommend all our customers to look at their gardens in providing extra security for their property for example the picture above is showing an overgrown holly bush hanging over a back garden wall, this offers protection in that it would be difficult to get over this wall without hurting yourself, although the bush could do with cutting back it is a very cheap and cheerful way of adding extra security to your property.
Lockkeys Locksmiths St Helens - Master Key Systems
If your thinking about installing a Master Key System then give Derek or Pam a ring for a free no obligation quote and advice, our Master Key Systems are bespoke to the customer and not off the shelf, they are also of a restrictyed profile which means no one will be able to get a key duplicated without the authority of an authorised person so protecting who has a key.
The Master Key System unlike a keyed alike system allows you to control who can enter individual doors, for example you could have a office with 6 locked doors you may want to be able to give keys to staff allowing them to open the main office door and their individual office doors but not others this can be done utilising just one key however you could have one key the Grand Master which allows you to open all doors.
Window Restrictors For Security And Safety
Window Restrictors can be used for both security and safety especially where your windows are able to open wide, unfortunately when there is a spot of good weather their tends to be a increase in burglaries and theft from property through open windows, having window restrictors prevents the window from being opened wide enough to climb through.
Probably most importantly for Lockkeys Locksmiths St Helens having Window restrictors fitted can prevent younger children and older persons who may have a dementia type illness from accidently falling from windows especially at height, these types of locks are readilly available to purchase but please use a reputable brand such as the one illustrated which is a jackloc one of the original types of window restrictors, alternatively if you would like us to give you a free no obligation quote for supplying and fitting Window Restrictors please give us a roing on 07967 778940 we are here for our customers.
Two Days Are Never The Same With Locksmithing
Two days are never the same with locksmithing and thats certainly the case with Locksmiths St Helens, we provide a locksmith service to the church and often have the job of working on old doors similar ot the one above, (apologies that the picture is on its side) working on older doors is a pleasue but can also be challenging in that often the locks have been in place a long time and when replacing them it can be difficult to find a right fit due to the change in sizes from imperial measurements to metric measurements and also the footprint of the lock can be difficult to match or on occasions the lock that requires replacing is now obsolete.
Despite this there is always other options to be considered and thats another quality of good locksmiths which is knowing what locks are available on the market to give the customer affordable choices. If you need advice on a lock issue then phone Derek or Pam at Lockkeys Locksmith Services on 07967 778940 we are here to help our customers becuase without them we wouldnt be here.

Here at Lockkeys Locksmiths St Helens we supply and iot locks to suit most budgets which includes Standard Security Locks to High Security Locks so whats the difference between the two ?

How To Become A Locksmith ?
How to become a locksmith ? well its easy as there is no regulation of locksmiths so you could call yourself a locksmith today. Most locksmiths either work for someone else or work for themselves as self employed.
There is now only one ofqual regulated educational qualification for locksmiths the Level 3 Diploma for Commercial Locksmiths & Property Security however the normal route is to take a unqualified course and as there are many advertised its best to do your research as to which trainer would be best for you and you can do this by comparing what each locksmith trainer is going to teach you, what area of the country the training will take place and who will be doing the training, for example is the trainer a working locksmith or do they just do training and how long have they been doing it.
Where the training will takes place is not that important eg if its in someones shed it wont matter if the training they will deliver will work for you as a classroom environment is not always the best as locksmithing is all hands on.
Once you decide who is going to do your training you need to consider your marketing like any other business marketing is probably the most important thing for example you can be the best locksmith in the world but if no one can find you then you wont get any business.
Here at Lockkeys Locksmiths St Helens we now offer locksmith training from our workshop in Lea Green St Helens and out on live jobs with us. Do your research, visit the ttraining centres and see whats best for you. All the very best for the future, Locksmithing is a very interesting and varied enjoyable career.

Interested In Lock Picking ? Well Take Your Pick
As Locksmiths in St Helens we are often asked by customers if we do a lot of lock picking and funnily enough we actually spend more time practising lock picking at home than we do on customers doors, the reason for this is that we spend less than 10 percent of our time dealing with lock out situations so most of the time we are dealing with locks that have failed and or need replacing.
We do spend time at home lock picking as its a very interesting past time and in fact a hobby called lock sport to many people. If interested in lock picking then dont jump in buying very cheap lock picks ask around first perhaps join a locksport community forum and seek some advice on which picks to start out with, at Locksmiths St Helens we certainly advise this simply because a decent set of picks will enable you to have more success at opening locks, all the best.

Locksmith St Helens - The Key To Preventing Being Locked Out
For most general Locksmiths in St Helens the customer being locked out situation only accounts for approximately 10 per cent of our weekly work, so why do customers become locked out and how could they prevent it from happening.
Lockked Out In St Helens Due To Losing A Key Or Keys: Its difficult to prevent losing keys however you could key a spare set with someone so if it does happen at least you can let yourself in and be safe and warm whilst you phone around for quotes to replace your locks.
Locked Out In St Helens Due To Leaving A Key In The Back Of The Lock: The easiest way to prevent this is to not leave a key in the lock in the first place however hindsight is very easy, another way to prevent this would be to carry a key for your back door (if you have one as well).

Lockkeys Locksmiths St Helens Proud To Live In St Helens
Our St Helens Locksmith Derek recently had the opportunity to attend the St Helens Business Fair, held at the Saints Ground and arranged by the St Helens Chamber of Commerce. It was an opportunity to network with local businesses but also to find out how St Helens is developing and moving forward.
One such development is Glass Futures which is being built on the former United Glass site. Glass Futures is a “not for profit” Research and Technology Organisation (RTO), will be operating a membership scheme with industry partners, glass end user customers and suppliers. Glass Futures will use the facility to provide commercially robust training and development activity to meet and exceed the demands of the global glass industry.
As such its not a manufacturing plant like Pilkingtons and should provide jobs for people in and around St Helens but will also provide work for local businesses such as hotels, transport and should help in the future growth of St Helens.
At Lockkeys Locksmith Services we live and work in St Helens although we do cover surrounding areas such as Wigan, Warrington, Widnes, Ormskirk and Burscough areas. When you contact us on 07967 778940 you will speak to either Derek or Pam the husband and wife family business owners.
Do Lockkeys Locksmiths Sell Parts To The Public ?
We sometimes get calls out of hours or at weekends by customers wishing to buy locks from us and unfortunately we do not sell our locks to members of the public. Theres a few reasons why we dont do this one being that we only carry stock to use ourselves and if we sell stock to others then we could leave ourselves short and will have to replace stock that we sell.
Secondly at Lockkeys Locksmith Services we are unable to guarantee locks that we dont fit ourselves this is to ensure that the lock was fitted correctly and if it fails as a result of a manufacturers faullt then we will contact them on behalf of the customer..
