Ultion locks upgraded Apperley Bridge

Amongst other jobs today, this home owner has acted on the recent spike in crime and asked me to upgrade their locks.  Backed by the Ultion £1000 Guarantee! Prevention is better (and much cheaper) than the cure!  Stay safe.

British Standard Unions % lever mortice lock Bradford
British Standard, 5 lever mortice lock installed.

Not everyone has a UPVC or composite door. So how do we know that the locks in wooden doors are adequate?
Mortice locks (installed in wooden doors) should be a minimum 5 lever British Standard, and will be marked BS3621 and carry the British Standard kitemark. You should find these details on the faceplate as shown in the photo here. Another way to confirm is to measure the bolt, it should protrude at least 20mm when locked.

So, the police recommend them, most home insurance providers insist on them, but what exactly are high security locks? I’ve done a short video which will hopefully explain the difference between a cheap lock, and a lock which will stop burglars entering your property.
As always, I am here for free help and advice, please get in touch…..and remember when getting quotes for your locks, if the quoted price sounds too good to be true, it definitely is!

While at this property replacing broken patio door handles, I also replaced the meter box door which had become damaged in the high winds last week. I do help out where I can 😁👍

Fab and Fix euro cylinder slipped cam

Notice the cam on this lock in the photo above which has slipped? It should be roughly in the 5 or 7 O’ Clock position. As a result, the home owner couldn’t remove their key. I upgraded their security and supplied and fitted a new Ultion 3* Diamond cylinder backed by a £1000 Guarantee should entry be gained by lock snapping!

Mul-T-Lock Garrison half locked gain entry

Because the gearbox in this door was worn, it allowed the door to become only half locked. The bolt and hooks only part way out but couldn’t be unlocked.
I opened the door causing no damage and replaced the gearbox 👍

Do your locks have any of the markings as shown in this video? They should. Get me on facebook for any questions!
