LOCK CHANGING IN BARNET
Ideally situated in Cockfosters to change locks in Barnet, South Hertfordshire and West Essex, Legend Locksmiths perform this task on a regular basis.
WHEN TO CHANGE YOUR LOCKS
AFTER MOVING HOUSE
IF KEYS ARE LOST OR STOLEN
IF LOCKS STOP WORKING PROPERLY
AFTER A RELATIONSHIP BREAKDOWN
MOVED HOUSE, STOLEN OR LOST KEYS
Under these circumstances locks should always be changed. Illicit possession of your keys would allow unhindered entry at any time of the day or night putting family and possessions at serious risk.
WHEN LOCKS STOP WORKING
Sadly, locks do not last for ever, so, when they cease to function properly it makes sense to replace them. Most locks can be replaced on a like for like basis which is quick and keeps installation costs down.
It is possible that a lock will completely fail when it is in a locked state – this is obviously a major nuisance if it causes you to be locked out! This is particularly the case with uP.V.C. doors which are notorious for jamming if not correctly adjusted. Never has the old adage ‘ a stitch in time saves nine’ been more true!
