Anti Snap Locks

locksmith middlesbrough

Over time burglars have found that the weak point on the door is the cylinder lock, they can ‘snap’ the cylinder in two to get to the door mechanism and open the door in a matter of seconds to gain entry to your home.

This method of forced entry has been on the increase over years and is still the significant form of entry. In our opinion getting the anti snap lock fitted is the solution and best method of prevention available. Here at locksmith Middlesbrough we supply and fit anti snap locks to combat the lock snapping technique, this increases the security of your home and is very quick and cost effective. We provide you with a fast, reliable and quality lock fitting service.

100% of our clients who have been burgled choose to upgrade to an anti snap lock when we inform them of the differences between both locks. If you are not sure that you have anti snap locks fitted to your door give us a call and we will arrange for someone to come round and check for you free of charge.

Here at Locksmith Middlesbrough, we like to use Avocet ABS locks when upgrading to anti snap as we feel they are the best on the market. When a burglar tries to snap the lockout it locks in place so they cannot manipulate the mechanism and gain entry to your home. Locksmith Middlesbrough advises that all upvc doors  (including patio and conservatory doors) should be fitted with Avocet ABS anti snap cylinders.

We offer a no obligation free quote service, so why not give Gavin a call he will be more than happy to help with any advice or questions you need answering.

Going on Holiday

locksmith middlesbroughIt may sound like a very straight forward precaution, but making sure that all locks on your windows, doors, outbuildings etc are securely locked.

Door Viewers

locksmith middlesbrough

Door viewers better known as spy holes are an excellent accessory for door security. These days there are many people who knock on the door selling all sorts of things. Most of the time we do not want to be interrupted or bothered by salesmen trying to sell their wares. The best way to find out who is at the other side of your door without opening it is to look through a viewer. It is most important that you make sure your home is safe and quality locks have been fitted to doors and windows. It makes sense to have a door viewer fitted to add to the security of your front door. One of the main entry points for a burglar is through entry and exit doors, so make it harder for them to gain entry to your home and try to deter them as best as you can. There are many door viewers to choose from on the market, but please use a professional locksmith like locksmith Middlesbrough to fit them as there are many things to take into consideration before being fitted to your door. If you need more information on door viewers or you would like for our locksmith to come to visit you and fit one, then call Gavin now on 07368491224 He will be more than happy to help you in any way he can.

Kickstop door guard

Statistics from the home office have shown that approximately 70% of burglars choose to tarMiddlesbrough locksmithget your front or your back door to your property. Usually by forcing the lock.

Until a burglary occurs where the intruder has “kicked in” the door, most homeowners are not aware that chiseling and removing the wood from the doors will most definitely weaken your doors security.

Fitting Mortice locks obviously involves removing the wood from the part of the door that you are going to fit the lock. this causes the wood around the lock and the hinges to split when under a kick in attack.

Extra measures can be taken to strengthen the door by using a Kickstop.

Kickstops don’t need to be locked or bolted so you can’t forget about it, they are great for enhancing your security each time you lock your door.

Kickstops are designed to reinforce and strengthen your door and also your doorframe around your locks and hinges.

GH Locksmith Middlesbrough and Police all around the country recommend using kickstops.

Going on Holiday    locksmith middlesbrough

We all look forward to holidays, some take one holiday a year, others have multiple holidays. How many of us take their home security into account as they are preparing to leave?! First and foremost, check to see if your insurance policy is up to date, if you do come back home and find that you have been burgled at least you know the expenses will be taken care of. Check with your insures which type of lock they say you should have, if you don’t have what they say then your policy maybe void. Try to deter a thief as much as you can, time is what a burglar wants. If you can make it so difficult for them to gain entry into your home, they should think twice about trying to make off with your valuables.

  • Always make sure that the window and door locks are very secure.
  • Don’t forget about your garages, sheds and outbuildings, secure them!
  • Fit security lights around your home, the last thing a burglar wants is to be seen.
  • Try and make your home look occupied, get timers for lights and tv’s.
  • Use Royal mails Keepsafe scheme. They will deliver all of your mail when you come home.
  • Cancel newspapers.
  • Don’t tell everyone that your are going away.

  • If you have a driveway ask neighbours if they would park their car a few times while you are away.
  • If you can, let family keep hold of your important documents.
  • Make sure that all tools are locked up, they can be used to gain entry into your home.
  • Mark all of your items with a security pen.

Letterbox Guard

Locksmith Middlesbrough advises that you should never leave your door keys in the keyhole or anywhere visible through the letterbox. The purpose of letterbox guards is to stop would be thieves from being able to see into your home through your letterbox. If you don’t have a letterbox guard fitted then the thief can see straight into your house and if you have keys visible they will try to pick them up by using a long device with a hook on it. This means that they now have access to your house and your car. This is happening all over the country.

The letterbox guard also helps to prevent the door handle being manipulated through the letterbox by restricting the size of the gap so that the thieves can not use any of their tools to gain entry to your home.

Garage Door Security

locksmith middlesbroughThe Garage Door Defender

An excellent way to secure your garage is with a garage defender, we fit the high quality sold secure products. The defender comes with a hardened solid stainless steel padlock and the removable bar locks into the steel base using said padlock. We fit the device by securing it into the ground right in front of your garage door with expandable bolts secured into the ground. GH locksmith Middlesbrough can fit these usually within an hour to minimise disruption. The garage door defender has a powder coated finish which is very hard wearing so it will last for years, so you definitely get your moneys worth when you purchase this product from GH locksmiths Middlesbrough. This is a high security product which eliminates the sawing and cuttings associated with cheaper, lesser quality garage defenders. Having this product fitted will deter even the most determined of would be burglars. We highly recommend this product and we even have one fitted to our own home garage.

Always have an experienced locksmith such as GH locksmith Middlesbrough to fit any type of security to your home or workplace.

If the garage door defender is not appropriate for your garage there are other options such as the following.

Garage door interior bolts

These types of locks can be fitted to the garage door both vertically and horizontally depending on the clearance around the inside of the garage door. You can operate the locks from both the inside and the outside of the garage. Both locks will work on the same key and you get three keys with the set of two locks. The locks operate by turning the key until the shoot bolts fully extend into the frame. These types of locks can be fitted to many types of up and over garage doors constructed of metal or wood. The bolts are suited to doors up to 38mm thickness.

All the work GH locksmith middlesbrough completes will be guaranteed for one year from the date of completion. If you would like to take advantage of our free no obligation quote service please call Gavin on 07958312149.
