Using the wrong key for your lock

You cant predict what people dont know, but using the wrong key to open your lock and forcing it can cause serious damage to your lock. In this case, a customer gave a key to a friend. They didn't realise it was the wrong key for the lock and they began to force the key to unlock it. This will not open the lock. Instead, it caused the talon on the bolt to break, as well as the key. This damage meant the correct key was unable to open the lock too! They called me and we were able to gain entry, make repairs and replace the lock.

Mortice Lock Non-destructive Entry

There's a good chance you have a mortice dead lock installed if you have a wooden door in your home.

The mortice lock shown in the video below is a British standard dead lock approved by insurance companies to comply with home insurance.

If you have one of these locks and you find yourself locked out, call a non-destructive locksmith! We've visited customers who have tried drilling through their own door to gain access, causing extensive damage to the lock and door. Gaining entry yourself may sound like a money saving idea, but getting in without causing damage can prove difficult and is likely to cost you more in the long run due to repair bills. Even some locksmiths who haven't had the appropriate training may find it difficult to gain entry without causing damage.

Before booking a locksmith, take the time to check they're trained in non-destructive mortice lock entry. This will prevent damage to your door and is likely to save you money.

Here is an example of a mortice lock being picked non-destructively by myself (LockRite Durrington) using a multi pick. If a locksmith doesnt attempt to pick your lock, but they choose to use a drill straight away, it's possible they're after a quick payday to replace your lock at your expense.

Key Safe Fitted

I was called out to a home recently to install a personal key safe on a property for safety and ease. Key safes allow quick access to friends and family in emergencies. One of the main benefits of installing a key safe is there's no need to give out spare keys. Instead, you only need to give those you trust the keypad code, so they can enter the code and gain access to the key. This key safe can hold up to 3 keys and is accessible via a code combination.

When taking the DIY approach, there's a chance that these can be fitted incorrectly, resulting in the removal of the safe. So our advice is to get key safes installed professionally by a trusted and trained locksmith.

Composite Door Won't Shut - Easy Weather Strip Fix

I had a call this week from a customer who couldn't lock their composite door after it had been heavily slammed. After checking the door, it was clear there was a small issue with the weather strip along the bottom of the door. It looked as though it may have jumped over - there's a simple fix for this. By simply moving the weather strip back over to it's natural position the door became functional and was able to be closed and locked once again.

Leaving Your Keys Inside Your Lock

Do you tend to leave your keys in the lock on the inside of the door? Youre not the only one.

Leaving your keys in the lock may come with some benefits, you always know where your keys are and it can make it easier to keep your doors locked while youre in and keep others out at night. However, you need to be careful when leaving your keys inside the lock to avoid getting locked out.

If your door uses a lock that locks automatically on the latch and requires the use of a key instead of just the handle to pull back the latch and open the door and you have left your keys inside, then you will not be able to insert your keys fully on the outside to get yourself back in should the door slam shut.

Keys In Lock

It can happen to anyone, especially when your thoughts are focused on other things, such as getting supplies or taking the bins out at night. It only takes a gust of wind to blow your door closed and youll be locked out. My advice is to not leave your keys inside of the key hole. This will cause spare keys to not work and if your keys are left inside of your door a burglar could potentially smash a front door window pane and let themselves in using your key.

If there is no glass in your door or if you have reinforced glass, there is the option of installing a thumb turn cylinder in your door on the inside. This would allow ease of locking the door from the inside without preventing keys from being used from the outside. These are especially useful if you want to child proof your doors as some come with a useful child proof push in and turn feature.

If youre interested in thumb turn locks and want to see if this might be a benefit to your household call me at Lockrite Durrington 01903 927021 for more info.

Hot Weather & uPVC Door Problems

The hot weather we've been having in and around Durrington has got everyone with upvc patio doors wanting to open them wide to let the hot summer sun in for likely the first time all year. However, many of my customers find that they are now unable to get the upvc doors to open. During this warm weather, the change in temperature can cause the doors to both shrink and expand. This can have an effect on the door bolts, making them drop. Unfortunately, what this this means is it's likely you'll start having issues where you can't open your UPVC patio doors, or your door is difficult to shut or lock. As Sussex is so close to the sea, it's possible that over the winter months, sea salt has got into the lock mechanism and caused rust to build up causing the working parts of the door to cease up.

Fixing uPVC Door Problem In Durrington Due To Hot Weather

How to fix your uPVC door lock problems in this hot weather

An experienced locksmith will be able to fix your uPVC door problems in and around Durrington. I can help, call me today on 01903 927021 for a free, no obligation quote.

There are a couple of things you can do to prevent door lock problems during the hot weather we've been getting.

The first is to apply a moderate amount of lock specific lubrication at the changing of the seasons to the locking points of the door that you're having difficulty opening, closing, locking or unlocking. This will help to disperse any water and salt and prevent future rusting.

The second is to ensure you open the door in question to stop it from dropping every week or so. If the door becomes harder to close and you're having difficulties lifting the handle to push the locking bolts into place, I can make the necessary adjustments to fix your door. Call me today on 01903 927021 for a reliable and friendly service.

Boarding Up a Large Shop Window

Broken Window

I was called out this week in the very early hours of Sunday morning following a break in to a high street shop. The window had been smashed through, resulting in the shop being left unsecure.

The window needed to be boarded up as soon as possible to secure the premises, but, upon my arrival, the security officer informed me that they'd been unable to contact the key holder.

I couldn't go ahead and pick the lock to secure the window from the inside because there were no managers available for authorisation. I couldn't screw the board into the frame from the outside either, as the frame was aluminium and this would cause significant damage to the window frame.

This wasn't a problem for me though, I've been professionally trained in all aspects of burglary repairs. I set to work making my own frame from wood battens. These were fitted to create a frame to position behind the existing frame, which allowed me to have a strong base to secure the security board on to. This process meant there were no screws needed to be placed into the metal frame and no damage caused.

Patio Door Lock Problems

Doors and locks are so varied these days, it's no surprise some customers call Lockrite Durrington for support with their lock, to find out there is actually no fault with the lock at all. For example, I had a customer earlier this week call me for a free quotation visit. They asked if I could take a look at one of their uPVC patio doors. The customer thought the hooks on the UPVC mechanism were not operating correctly when the handle was lifted (they believed the hooks weren't throwing as expected). The good news for this customer was that there was nothing wrong with their lock. They hade made the mistake of checking if the throw bolts would shoot into the lock position when the door was not closed. What the customer didn't realise was that their door mechanism comes with a "Snib" - When your door has a snib this needs to be compressed (this happens when the door is closed) for the shoot bolts to be operated and engaged.

I checked all the other points of the uPVC door to ensure the lock and door was operating as it should and explained there was no problem with their lock. I didn't charge the customer for this visit - I'm glad I could give the customer peace of mind free of charge. If repairs aren't needed, LockRite does not charge a a call out fee. When you call a LockRite locksmith you only ever pay when work is completed.

Are you having issues in Durrington with your uPVC door, mechanism or handles? If so, I can help. I provide locksmith services in Durrington and the surrounding areas. Call me today on 01903 927021, for a free no obligation quote.

Broken Mortice Lock Repaired

Called out to replace a broken mortice lock for a gentleman customer. Over the phone he was sure he would need a brand new mortice lock due to it being broken, shaping off his key and being stuck in the locked position. He was also concerned about how much this could cost after calling several other companies. I asked to come and take a look at the lock with no call out fee. Upon inspecting the lock and then gaining entry to the mortice lock, with a lot of knowledge and a little skill, the mortice lock which had indeed stopped working could be fixed, in under 10 min.

After fixing the mortice lock and cutting the customer brand new additional keys on site I left the customer with a lock that would last several more years and no additional costs for parts or replacement locks. Just goes to show that repairs can be made on site and you don't always need to get the whole lock replaced, which could save money and hassle.

Tips For Choosing a Locksmith in Durrington

There are many factors to consider when choosing a locksmith in Durrington. Our checklist below should help you when making a decision.


  • Check the locksmith is DBS (CRB) checked. This will reveal whether they have a hidden criminal past. You need someone you can trust working with your home security, so if they do not have a clean DBS (CRB) check walk away.

  • Check the price quoted is what you will pay. Many locksmiths will quote one price on the phone only to bump the price up dramatically once the work has been undertaken. Make sure you know what you will be paying before work commences and sign something agreeing to the charges.

  • Make sure you are happy with what the locksmith says regarding your home security and don't be pressurised into an expensive upsell. Not all locks are equal, and some cheaper locks do not provide adequate security for home insurance purposes so make sure if you're having new locks installed they are right for you.

  • Always use a trusted locksmith with a decent reputation and accountability. There are many rogue traders who just want to rip customers off. Check their websites for testimonials and guarantees. If anything looks or feels dodgy, walk away and find another locksmith.

  • Call their advertised number and see how long it takes them to answer. If calls are left ringing with no answer or diverts to voicemail numerous times it could indicate they will be difficult to get hold of if there is a problem with their work. Use a locksmith who answers their phone!


Hopefully this checklist will help you to choose the best Durrington locksmith for your needs.

All LockRite locksmiths are DBS (CRB) checked and will always confirm the price you will pay before commencing any work.

Home Security Tips From Your Durrington Locksmith

Carefully consider where you hide your outside spare key. Avoid hiding places like over the door frame or beneath the doormat. Experienced criminals will check these places immediately.

If the home you are moving into is not brand new, you should change the locks on all the doors. The person who used to live there may still have a key.

Turn the ringers off on all your phones if you will be away for a prolonged period of time. If a burglar keeps hearing your phone ring, they'll know the home is not occupied, making it more likely for a break-in to occur.

Anti snap locks, deadbolts and window locks will help to prevent most opportunist thieves and security lighting will deter intruders.

If you are unsure how secure your home is, call your local LockRite Durrington locksmith today on 01903 927021 to arrange a home security survey.

Home Security in the Summer Months

As summer approaches and the days get warmer it is natural to leave windows open and doors ajar to keep homes cooler. Unfortunately this can be an open invitation to the "sneak-in" opportunist burglar who will take advantage of open doors and windows and make off with small, expensive items such as mobile phones and laptops, or even a set of house keys to return later when the house is empty or everyone is asleep.

If a burglary takes place without any visible signs of forced entry it can invalidate insurance claims, so it is important to remain security concious in the summer. One way to help prevent "sneak-in" burglaries is to install door security chains and window restrictors. This allows doors and windows to be left open slightly while offering enough security to deter an opportunist thief.
