Well as most of you are, as well I am totally hooked at the moment on the Rio Olympics and most of all how well Team GB are doing! The reason I know how many people are watching the games with me is everyone of my customers I have visited today are talking about how well we have done, especially in the cycling and the swimming. A big shout out to Adam Peaty who is just over the border of Leicestershire into Derbyshire and to the Team GB cyclists lead by Sir Bradley Wiggins if any of the team call us here at JG Locksmiths your local Leicester locksmiths we will offer an Olympic discount for your amazing efforts. Now I have given my dedication and thanks to the Team GB I will offer some great summer tips, firstly if you want to keep your windows upstairs open but are scared because you have children then why not try Jac-Locks these allow you to have the window open and keeps it shut enough so someone cannot fall out or even get in. Do Not leave downstairs windows open at night when you go to bed and Always lock your front door if you are sat out the back in the garden enjoying the sun to prevent any sneak in burglaries! If you have any lock issues at all or just need some advice then call J G Locksmiths your local Leicester locksmith who will be more than happy to help.
I’m here to offer advice at Leicester locksmiths, as I write this I notice that I have the living room window wide open, the patio doors held back, is the front door unlocked? No it is not, but many people do leave the door unlocked even today, it takes a burglar seconds to open your door, reach in and grab whatever they can whether it is your car keys, your phone or hand bag please don’t be that victim!
A couple of pointers– if you have a UPVC door – install a sash jammer, then even if the door isn’t locked – you can pull it down behind you and you’re safe in the knowledge someone cant just walk in! Another good pointer is, don’t leave your keys on show , I have on many occasions seen tweets from Leicestershire Police about cars keys being stolen that have been left in view by front doors, or even left on the inside of the door. Move those keys, put them somewhere safe or even hide them.
Finally – if you are going to leave everything wide open, get a door alarm detector – this is a piece of kit that makes a noise when the door is opened, this could be very annoying if you have visitors in and out all of the time, but handy if you want to keep your valuables safe!
For any more advice, or to hear what services we at the Locksmith in Leicester can offer, feel free to call.

Yesterday was a busy day with a steady stream of calls for broken locks from the bank holiday weekend. Here at J G Locksmiths we are open over the holidays and for emergency call outs out of hours so please call for a quote or for some advice. Our first call of the day was to fit extra window security to a property in Leicester.All the windows were UPVC so this was a simple job for us which we were able to complete in the first visit. Our Leicester locksmith engineers recommended that sash jammers were fitted to downstairs windows and the customer also wanted lockable ones, which was no problem at all. Upstairs we also fitted jack locks to the children’s room, this is a lock that allows you to open the window so far to let in the fresh air but you cannot fully open the window. The next job was a jammed UPVC door, this is something that we here at J G Locksmiths specialise in. The owner had gone to open up French doors to the garden and realised that the key was turning to unlock but then the handle was not unlocking the door, it was rigid and would not move.We had the door unlocked and open within 30 minutes and found that the gearbox on the mechanism had broken. Here again we managed to supply and fix a new gearbox to the door in the first visit therefore keeping the costs down for the customer. The next job was in the Leicester city centre at a local cafe that were having problems locking and unlocking the door. This was a more complicated job as the door was metal with what we call a hook bolt on it which was powered by a screw in cylinder. We realised that this was the locking case and not the cylinder so we had to supply and fit a new adams rite locking case to the door. The customer was happy as they did not have to change the lock which meant him and all his staff would have had to have new keys. We then managed to fit some dinner in! but we then went onto to two more homes in the afternoon to upgrade customers euro cylinders to snap safe cylinders, as we are local Leicester locksmiths we know about the rise in cylinder snapping by criminals, so please call us today for some free advice and a no obligation quote t upgrade your security.

Yesterday was a busy day at J G Locksmiths. First job was a upvc door that would not lock when our customer was on her way to work. From when our local locksmith in Leicester received the call to our engineer arriving on site was 30 minutes. The door was a UPVC and on looking at the door we could clearly see the door was not in line with the frame of the door. This is a regular problem people have with this type of door and sometimes it is weather dependant. For example in the summer when you open your patio doors onto your lovely sun drenched garden,at the end of the day when you come to lock the doors they will not lock as the sun has caused the doors to swell and move so the locking mechanism will not marry up to the keep on the receiving door. Luckily the majority of doors (not all) have adjustable hinges that can manipulate the door to make the fit a lot easier. This job was a simple fix and with a few turns the hinges lifted the door and the door was able to close. It was also a lot easier than it had been apparently according the the customer. Our customer had been given our number by another customer of ours who had wanted a local affordable Leicester locksmith company and who picked us and was a very satisfied customer. Having been in business for over ten years now J G Locksmiths have built up a great customer base with a lot of repeat business.

Well it has been a busy weekend here at J G Locksmiths, A lot of people losing their keys this weekend. First call on Saturday morning was fo r a Leicester city centre shop who had managed to get into the shop to open up, but unfortunately the key was stuck in the lock and would not come out. As we are a local Leicester locksmith company our engineer was onsite within 30 minutes of receiving the call. The job was easily rectified and a new lock had to be fitted due to a twisted cam on the euro cylinder, luckily our fully stocked vans also have key cutters and we were able to cut 14 extra keys onsite at the same time. From here we travelled to a town on the out skirts of Leicester to supply and fit from scratch a new night latch to a wooden door to add a little extra security for peace of mind. Again straight from here we were called to a student house in Leicester to a common call out by students to gain entry to their room having left the keys inside and shutting the door behind them. e were able to gain entry quickly and no need to change any locks and no damage caused. Being trusted Leicester locksmiths our company name has been passed from student to student and we get a lot of repeat business for being quick, professional and competitively priced. The afternoon was filled with booked in jobs for lock changes and upgrades for people who work all week and this being the most convenient time to call. Then back home for a break. Just had one call out in the early hours of Sunday morning fro a couple who had lost their keys whilst in Town then straight back home. No early calls on Sunday so a chance to catch up on some sleep, but then early afternoon back out again to a couple who were going out for dinner to celebrate mothers day when their upvc door mechanism jammed! We were able to supply and fit a new gearbox there and then as our locksmith vans are fully stocked. The couple managed to get away within 45 minutes and did not miss the meal. So please do not hesitate to call J G Locksmiths for immediate attention on 01163400131 for a professional affordable service giving you peace of mind.
We receive a lot of calls here at J G Locksmiths with regard to extra security. What more can you do apart from have the strongest and most up to date locks on your doors. Well for example you can have sash jammers fitted to your upvc doors and windows or window restrictors fitted to your windows, especially on the first floor and above to prevent any accidents. Here at J G Locksmiths your local Leicester locksmiths we carry a vast array of stock and will be able to add extra security at your request. We will always recommend extra security where we feel it is needed. another one of our most popular extra security items are patio bolts, these can be fitted to sliding patio doors and are a key operated lock that will add extra strength and security to our sliding patio door. This will make it a lot harder for any potential intruders to lift or force your door out of its runners. Sash jammers are a must for upvc French doors as well these are locks fitted the the frame of the door adding extra strength and they come either as a simple pull down lock or with an extra key operated lock attached giving that extra peace of mind. These type of locks are more important coming up to hopefully the hot summer months when people will need those windows left open to let that cool breeze in, so the window restrictors will come in extremely useful and they are also key operated. Ask one of local Leicester locksmith engineers to show you one of these locks when they visit and explain exactly how they work, you will not be disappointed and I am sure you will want them fitting there and then. So for immediate attention and free advice please give us a call on 01163400131 and talk directly to a trained Leicester locksmith and not a call centre.

Well I’m sure there will be someone reading this who has at some point got home from work or a night out on the town and realised that they have left home earlier shutting the door behind them not realising they have left those all important keys inside! I hope that if you have done this then you would have called a trusted Leicester locksmith company such as J G Locksmiths to help gain entry to your property by non destructive methods. Many people especially with night latches fitted have smashed a window to gain entry rather than call out a trained locksmith. this is NOT cost effective. By the time you have measured up for glass and had it refitted it would cost more than a locksmith would have cost. Many people leave keys with neighbours or relatives for occasions such as this, but if like some people you do not trust doing this then maybe a hidden key-safe at your property is just for you. I know here at J G Locksmiths we have fitted several of these for people, and not just for elderly people we have fitted these for customers who have called us out more than once after being locked out. Our local Leicester engineers carry key-safes as part of their must have stock and these can come in varying sizes and styles and are push button or dial. All you need to do is remember your code to get in it and remember were you have hidden it! For advice on what type is most suitable for you or your circumstances then please call us now at J G Locksmiths for some sound impartial advice. You can be assured we will supply and fit the best key-safe for you giving you complete peace of mind that you will arrive home and always be able to get back in using a key.
A master key system (also called a Master Suite system) is a perfect solution that we here at J G Locksmiths provide for offices, landlord owned multi properties, schools and flats. Broken down in to simple terms this is a key system that is a high security bespoke locking system where one master key can open every door. This is something that our Leicester locksmiths have vast knowledge of and together we can plan and build the perfect master suite system that will suit your need.
A good example of how this works would be in a serviced office where a number of companies share the building, each tenant requires a key to their office. However, the landlord does not necessarily want to have to keep a set of hundreds of keys so that he/she can gain access to every single office. This is now where we can come in and help you with this issue by providing a suited system.
Here at J G Locksmiths we work out together with the landlord who needs access and to where, and then we would design, supply and install a Master Suite system to the requirements agreed. Each tenant would then be given a key that allows them then to gain access only to the areas required, such as the main entrance and their own individual office within the building. The landlord’s key can open all the doors and he/she has full and total control over the system.
These systems can be made on what we call restricted key systems, the main benefit of this system in the above description of works is that the tenants cannot have extra keys cut without the landlord’s permission. The keys are only registered with us, and the manufacturer so therefore they can only go through us and we would require your permission.
To find out whether a Master Suite system would be right for your situation, please call us on our Leicester number 0116 3400131 for immediate attention.
Here at J G Locksmiths we provide a variety of locking solutions whether it be for your home or office. One such locking device are mechanical or electrical digital door locks. Digital door locks provide a low cost , practical and easy to install security solution for many situations especially for buildings that require a reliable means of access control but where by the issuing of keys or fobs due to the sheer volume of people requiring access to the building is not practical. Our Leicester locksmiths carry a variety of digital door locks providing you with the ideal key-less solution for door entry. Due to the vast range of digital door locks on the market they offer a very effective access control solution, for example it could be for a stationary or data storage cupboard within an office environment through to a heavy duty model required on a side metal gate to a busy staff entrance on a supermarket or large business premises. One of the best reasons for fitting a digital door lock is the fact you do not have to issue hundreds of keys to staff, also if a member of staff lost a key then the lock would have to be changed and again hundreds of new keys issued and this is not at all cost effective. With a mechanical digital door lock fitted your staff would only need to memorise a code and if a member of staff leaves the company or the code is compromised just change the code as you do not need to buy a new Please call us now to talk with one of our Leicester locksmith engineers to discuss the type of digital lock that would suit your situation or door type where i is a wooden or metal door or a side gate please call us on 01163400131 now for immediate attention.

It was an early start this morning for the Leicester locksmiths team here at J G Locksmiths. It was around 6am when the first call came in and it was a very frustrated shop keeper from the city centre who was unfortunately locked out of their shop after the key had snapped off in the lock. We arrived on site within 30 mins and it was only ten minutes later and the shop keeper was inside setting things up for the start of the day, whilst our engineer fitted a set of new screw in cylinders for the metal door. We also supplied 8 extra keys which we cut on site. It was straight from her we were off to a job booked in for 8am in wigston. This was a simple lock upgrade for a customer who wanted snap safe cylinders fitting to front and back door but they wanted both locks to have the same key. Here at Leicester locksmiths we often supply keyed alike cylinders for customers and also master suite systems for some of our commercial clients.
We managed to fit in a quick bacon cob before we were off to Groby to look at someone’s UPVC door which had jammed shut. On arrival we completed the usual tests and realised that the door mechanism had broken, which is more common than people think. Within 30 minutes our engineer had the door open and we were able to fit a new gearbox there and then, as our fully stocked Leicester locksmiths van carry the vast majority of common parts, this saving the customer time and money as no return visit was necessary. We then received a call from one of our contract clients who required an extra digital lock fitting on an admin cupboard then it was time for lunch.
From here we had a drive to an industrial estate just outside Leicester city centre to remove a jammed padlock on a delivered container. Also managed to fit in a welcome cup of coffee! From here we then had to drive back into Leicester city centre to supply and fit a new lock on the glass doors of a well visited café who had unfortunately had a set of keys vanish.
Here at Leicester locksmiths we are a well trusted and customer focussed team, who are both professional and reliable and because of this we have a lot of repeat business and recommendation’s. If you have any lock or security issue, please call for advice and a free quote.
Here at J G Locksmiths we have spoken about UPVC doors and the types of locks that are suitable, now we are going to discuss the types of lever locks we can supply and fit to wooden door. Mortice locks are a very common lock and many homes and businesses around Leicestershire have these fitted. This type of lock is operated by a turn of the key that enables a bolt to lock into the strike plate or keep that is mortised into the receiving frame. Mortice locks have to be manually locked and unlocked and provide better security than most night latches when they are attacked. Here at J G Locksmiths your local Leicester locksmiths we carry the full range of mortice locks, they generally come in three options and various sizes and finishes to suit your own individual circumstances.
The first and most basic is the 3 lever mortice lock, either dead lock or sash lock, these are generally used in low security situations and provides a basic security protection. These locks generally should be fitted to internal doors such as bedrooms, storage cupboards and any other low security internal doors. You should not use this type of lock on your main doors to your home or business as they are very low security.
5 lever mortice locks are an upgrade to the 3 lever locks. Firstly, they are higher security and more robust. Due to the increase in the number of levers the locks are higher security as they offer more key combinations. A lot of the 5 lever locks can also provide extra security features like anti pick, anti-saw bolts and boxed strike plates.
The highest rated mortice locks and the ones we at Leicester locksmiths recommend are the 5 Lever British Standard (BS) mortice locks these are rated to BS3621 and are required for external doors to a property and it is this type of lock that is generally required by insurance companies to qualify for contents insurance. All the BS deadlocks have the anti-pick and anti-saw security features with an extended 20mm bolt throw that locks into a steel boxed security strike plate fitted to the frame. These locks also have a hardened steel plate that helps protect the levers from a drill attack they also have a security curtain that helps protect against someone picking the locks via the keyhole.
If you are not sure if you current locks are BS3621 rated for insurance then please call your Leicester locksmiths to come round to complete a free security survey and provide a free quote if work is required.

Leicester locksmiths have been looking into bike security and have found the following information on a exercise completed by a university.
Bike thefts have been slashed at Newcastle University simply by putting pictures of staring eyes above cycle racks.
The two-year experiment was carried out by a security manager at the campus who had seen similar studies suggest that people behave better when they feel they are being watched.
Academics found that bike racks which had eyes placed above them experienced 62 per cent fewer thefts than the previous year, while those without eyes saw thefts increase by 63 per cent.
Is this something that you feel would work here in Leicester?
