Recent burglaries in Manchester - a reminder to improve Manchester home security

A Manchester suburb has been named as one of the UK's burglary hot spots by insurance experts. According to experts, Chorlton has one of the worst rates of burglary.

Homes in Chorlton, Manchester, are claimed to have an average of 40.5 burglary claims per 1000 quotes according to analysis by Money Supermarket. Data obtained by Money Supermarket shows that claims submitted in the winter months were 36 percent higher than those submitted in summer - this is likely down to the theft of presents over the Christmas period.

It's important to keep your home secure and to do what you can to prevent a burglar from entering your home. Upgrades to your security, including the installation of CCTV cameras, alarms and anti snap locks can all help to prevent burglaries.

Adding outdoor lighting with motion sensors and adding gravel to your front garden can help to create obstacles for potential thieves. Thieves are more likely to choose a different target if it offers easier access with less hassle. More home security tips include NOT hiding spare keys around the front or back of your house, ensuring that your garage and garden sheds are locked, installing British Standard Locks and NOT sharing your location on social media. For more tips take a look at this home security guide.

Antique Locks

One of our recent jobs has been creating keys for an antique lock. It's a different task than cutting contemporary keys, as it has to be done by hand rather than by machine.

Why do people want to keep old locks? Sometimes it's in order to maintain the character of the building, and sometimes these locks can't be removed because a building is listed.

Thieves Targeting Houses With Locksmith Stickers

Thieves are using stickers advertising a fictitious local locksmith company to mark homes which are an 'easy target'. The criminals carry out a preliminary reconnaissance on the area and mark houses which are deemed as having poor security measures in place. They later return to break into the houses which have already been marked as targets. The authorities are advising residents to remove the stickers immediately if they see any on their doors or windows.

Is your home secure? Call us today on 0161 297 0034 to arrange a security check on your premises.

Why You Should Choose LockRite When Looking For a Locksmith in Manchester

There are several good reasons why you should consider choosing LockRite when looking for a locksmith in Manchester.

  • All our locksmiths are DBS (CRB) checked which means they do not have a hidden criminal past.
  • The price quoted is the price you pay. We do not artificially inflate prices on the doorstep like some unscrupulous locksmith companies.

  • If it is an emergency we can usually be on our way to you immediately and we will show up (unlike some companies who say they will but don't, wasting your time).

Tips For Choosing a Locksmith in Manchester

There are many factors to consider when choosing a locksmith in Manchester. 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 Manchester 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 Manchester 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.

Van Drivers At Risk Of Theft

Many of Britains van drivers could be putting themselves at risk of theft without the correct level of insurance cover according to a survey by a leading insurance comparison website. Approximately 65% of van owners surveyed, which included many small businesses, said they used their vans to transport tools, goods or equipment and over half of those surveyed said they left items in their vehicles overnight. Approximately 10% of those surveyed also admitted to selecting the 'social only' insurance level to reduce insurance costs which would not be adequate for a business/commercial insurance claim.

How To Keep Your Valuables Safe: A Home Security Guide

If you are a homeowner, the safety of your home is probably something that is constantly on your mind. After all, you have probably worked hard to have your home in the first place. However, do you know what it takes to secure your home at all times? If not, this article can help guide you. Never allow anyone in your home that claims to be a sales representative. Many thieves use this as a way to get inside. They may try to gain entry to see if there is anything valuable in clear sight, then they will come back later when they think no one is home. Children's rooms and basements make good hiding places for valuables. When a burglar enters a home, they usually target the living areas for electronics and the master bedroom for jewelry and other valuables. Children's rooms filled with toys and basements used to store 'junk' are of little use to intruders and are usually passed over completely. Install timers on your indoor lights. If you are planning on being away from home after dark, timers can make your home look occupied. This is especially useful if you are planning a vacation or other extended stay away from home. Make sure the timer is set differently in each room, as all the lights turning on at once does not look natural. If you are planning on going on vacation, you need to hire someone to look after your home. Savvy thieves know what to look for when scouting out homes to rob. Uncut grass, newspapers piled up on the doorstep and unshoveled snow on the side walk are all signs that a homeowner is away on vacation. In conclusion, as a homeowner, keeping your home safe and secure is more than likely a major priority for you. Since you have read the above article, you know what it takes to secure your home properly. Use these tips and you will never have to worry about keeping your home safe again.

25% Of All Vehicle Thefts Now Involve The Use Of A Key

The latest UK crime statistics show an alarming rise in vehicle thefts involving the use of a key with 25 percent of all stolen vehicles now being taken with the original key or a cloned copy. It is important to lock your car, even when kept in a garage, and ensure your car keys are kept out of sight from the opportunist thief as a car which is stolen with the use of a key is unlikely to be covered in the event of an insurance claim.

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.

Call your local Manchester locksmith on 0161 297 0034 today to discuss your home security needs.

Lock Snapping on 'The One Show'

The dangers of lock snapping were recently discussed on the One Show (7th March 2012) and the advice is to ensure the locks on your uPVC doors are designed to withstand this kind of forced entry.

Lock snapping is a technique used by burglars where uPVC locks are literally snapped in half allowing quick access to your property. Unfortunately this type of forced entry is becoming more and more commonplace, and many homes with uPVC doors in theManchester areaare susceptible to this kind of attack unless the locks have been upgraded with anti-snap cylinders.

We can provide anti-snap, anti-bump and anti-pick locks for your doors. Call us now on 0161 297 0034 for a free, no obligation quote.
