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!
