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 center 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 the 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.
