For Middlesbrough locksmith residential services, more people are choosing to use the more robust hardware, which makes a bold statement about the importance of an individuals home security. By starting at the front door and moving through the house, it’s possible to put together the best security system possible.

Some may opt for access control and CCTV, while other people may simply decide to overhaul existing locks with upgraded ones. A great number of individuals won’t be aware of the fact that when a new house is in fact purchased, there is likely more than one set of key out there. It becomes impossible to sit back and determine which of the previous owners have a set of keys and which do not.

Call GH Middlesbrough locksmith , it is important never to blindly trust the previous owner’s keys and locks. There are even more people likely to have keys to the house, like a maintenance person, a babysitter, a family member or a neighbour.

Anti Snap Locks

TS007 3 Star

GH Locksmiths Middlesbrough recommend the Brisant Ultion euro cylinder. This is because it is the most secure lock on the market in our opinion. The TS007 3 Star rating coupled with the Sold Secure Diamond Standard make this lock the most difficult type for burglars to manipulate and gain access to your home.

Anti Snap Locks

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 GH 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.

Basic Security

 It may sound like a very straight forward precaution, but making sure that all locks on your windows, doors, outbuildings etc are securely locked. This should be the first thing you should check before leaving home. For extra security you should look into upgrading your locks on front and back doors. This will deter thieves gaining entry through techniques as lock snapping. Also upgrade window locks for your windows on the ground floor to prevent access.

Motion Detector Lights

Install sensor lights at the main points of entry (mainly front and back door) will reveal anybody on your premises when they pass or approach. This will deter a would be burglar or opportunist thief from going about his business and stealing from you.

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.
