Locks and Home Insurance...are you covered?
Home owners of Beverley, take heed! For having a decent lock fitted on your door won’t only minimise your risk of burglary…it may also save you a nasty fall-out with your insurers in the event of a break in! Indeed for the small print of many insurance policies will often state how a burglary claim will only be valid if locks that meet British Standard's of Security are fitted on the claimant’s property. While it makes sense that insurance providers are only prepared to pay out on a claim if measures have been taken by the homeowner to protect their property with proper locks, I often find that many people haven’t realised that their locks fail to meet the mark! Look out therefore for the kitemark sign present on all British Standard Locks. They’re fitted by me, Ricky at Lockforce Beverley, and will give you the peace of mind that a good quality lock is fitted on your property. The British standard kite mark is a UK product and service quality certification mark. This is issued by the British Standards Institution (BSI Group). The symbol shows that the product of matches that of which is required for the product to operate safely and efficiently doing the job that it is intended for. The British standard kite mark is a heart shaped symbol, as seen on this ERA Sash Lock.
If you're unsure as to what locks you have fitted on your property and whether they're offering an adequate level of protection, give me a call today your local Expert Locksmith in Beverley on 01482 530106 for lock security advice.
Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) Installation
Are you considering increasing security on your property with the use of CCTV (Video Surveillance)? At Lockforce Beverley, Ricky fits the highest level of CCTV to meet your needs. I fit Full HD CCTV with all the parts and requirements which will allow you to view and record the footage at full HD 1080DP.
The live footage as well as the recorded footage can be watched remotely from a Tablet or mobile phone using apps available in the app or android stores. This Level of images make the quality of recording high enough to notice facial features from a distance and even at night. Unlike a lot of imaged of CCTV that we see on the news and Crime watch, where the person is hard to identify even if you had or do see them.
Additionally, the cameras also pick up car registration plates as they drive past which is ideal if you have a car park with a lot of moving traffic or a property or business set back from the main road. CCTV is a proven and effective way to reduce crime there have been seen to reduce crime in car parks by 51%. CCTV is also one of the first things the police will look to see if available once a crime is committed in any location. So not only do the HD CCTV camera work as a Deterrent but they also work great if need to be used in court or even for identification purposes.

There are 3 main types of locks fitted to properties in the UK. These are:
Euro Cylinder identified by the shape of the lock. These are commonly fitted into MPL’s in both UPVC door and composite doors. But can also be found in some Mortice locks in wooded doors. These are now the most common house hold lock in the UK. Although these all appear the same from the front there are many standards. Standard Euro Cylinder, Anti snap locks, British Standards locks in 3 levels of security TS007 1 star, 2 star and 3 star. Currently a TS007 3 Star is the highest rating of Euro cylinder lock more information on these can be found below in the locks we use section... Here at Lockforce your Local Locksmith in Beverley we stock and fit These Locks on 01482 530106 Euro Cylinders work by the pin being alinged into place by the correct key upon insertion then the cam the part in the middle of the lock will rotate allowing the lock to disengage the locking system in the MPL or mortice lock. There is also a oval cylinder the only difference is the shape is an oval surposed to the common euro cylinder shape.
Mortice locks these are found in wooden door as from the outside the key hole is the best for of identification. There are two common types of mortice locks a sash lock and a dead lock the main difference being a sash lock retains the door then the lock is not engaged (The bolt is extended) and a handle is used to open the door. A dead lock use solely a bolt which is engaged when the key is turned. Mortice locks are required to be British standard by insurance company’s. This standard is normally BS3621 this can be identified by the British standard kite mark on the face plate (Where the bolt and sash come out of the door. Normally a brass or chrome plate) for more information see our locks and home insurance section. Or Call Lockforce your Locksmith in Beverley on 01482 530106. British standard mortice locks are normally 5 leavers when the key is inserted these align then a curtain within the lock is allowed to spin then the bolt is retracted.
Night latch these are commonly missed call by the common brand a Yale lock. The lock from the exterior is identified commonly by the round lock face (rim cylinder). These locks are used for additional security and multiple occupancy households. These again are most common on wooden doors, they work by when the door is closed the latch catches in the keep attached to the frame. Meaning there is no need to physically turn a key to lock the door. Benefits to this type of lock are they can be open from the inside easily without a key (on non-British standard locks) allow easy exit if multiple people are inside the property. For more information on these locks and if they are suitable for your self contact lockforce, local locksmith in Beverley. Down side are unless British standard you then need a British standard lock as well on the door for insurance purposes (unless interior doors have additional locks). Also if you shut the door and leave the keys inside you are locked out of your property. The principle of these locks to open is the same as the Euro cylinder where the key moves the pins into alignment but then instead of moving a cam in moves a Shaft the turn the night latch mechanism therefore opening the door.

Keen to know what locks we use?
As a locksmith I can tell you that the type of locks fitted onto your property will make a huge difference in deterring burglars from breaking and entering your home. For indeed, not all locks are created equal! That’s why I stock locks from a list of select suppliers, upon whose high quality you can rely to keep you safe.
One such lock I stock is from my trusted supplier Brisant, whose TS007 model offers the maximum protection to homeowners up and down the country. The lock has 11 pins with an incredible 64,000 potential combinations – preventing an easy picking for burglars! Have a look at the vimeo below for a demonstration as to how the locking mechanism works…
Having a high quality lock such as the TS007 is really important against protecting yourself against burglary…especially at a time when crooks up and down East Yorkshire are getting savvier at breaking into homes through a technique known as lock-snapping. Having worked out that a large proportion of UK homeowners have an intrinsic weakness in the lock cylinders fitted on their uPVC doors, simply by using a few commonplace tools, criminals can break into your home without as much as a sound…all I might add within 13 seconds! Look at the video below to see lock snapping in action and how a good quality lock, fitted by a trained technician and from a trusted supplier, can protect your home from intruders.

Door will not lock on Sunday 8th October 2019
We were called following a call from a customer saying their front door will not lock After attending within 30 minutes of the call as we are based in Beverley, we found that the door would not lock due to a faulty gear box. This had been damaged due to the amount of force that was required to lock the door. This is easily fixed usually with realignment being carried out, but this was too late as the gearbox had already failed. To get the door working as it should again, we replaced the gearbox on the same vit and realigned the door to prevent this from becoming a problem again. Customer then left us a nice 10/10 review on check trade as they were happy with the work, we carried out ??
Dont Leave the Keys in Burglary
I was called on Wednesday 30th August to a home in Beverley which had been burgled. The home had a window forced open and then they put their arm thought the window to open the door as the keys where left on the inside. This customer said straight away they would like all their locks changed as keys had been taken. They also requested and alarm and CCTV. This was all fitted in a 24-hour period their locks are now the most secure locks on the market and with the added alarm and CCTV there security is dramatically increased. If you lock your doors do not leave the keys in them yes this may stop someone using a key from the outside but this also makes it so much easier to break in this goes for both uPVC door and Wooden doors.
Job 1 I received a call from a local dentist who had all new doors fitted to his home but was unsure about the security of the locks on them - after having seen 'Breaking Britain' and how easy lock snapping was. Upon attending the property, it was clear the doors were to a high security having composite reinforced doors. However the locks that were fitted were standard EURO cylinders. Moreover, when looking at all the doors and the customer informed me one of them was not functioning correctly. This doors MPL was not aligned correctly, so this was rectified straight away. After discussing lock snapping in more detail and showing the customer how easily this is done. Even letting the customer do this on his own door. We discussed all the anti snap options and their costs. The customer required the highest security locks Brisant ULTIONs to the standard of TS007 3* (highest available at present). Also, the customer was informed of the one key opens all doors option, with this being a large property this suited the customer's needs. All doors on the home and the out-building were fitted with the same key code and the highest security locks from Brisant.
Job 2 I was called to a commercial property following a break in. Upon attending I was shown around to find the metal fire escape door had been forced open with a Crow bar. Upon inspection it was clear to see the bolts on the release button where not fully extending into the retaining slots. Then a security survey was conducted of the other entry point and it was clear to see all of the fire escapes on the property were not fully engage. Some did not even move at all! Solution: All new bolts have been fitted. Extra bolts were likewise fitted to secure the door at more points, with longer bolts when the building is unoccupied.
Job 3 Problem: Was called to a house where 2 UPVC windows where locked open when then new home owner moved in and there was no keys left. Solution: Both handles where locked open and was not part of a master suit. The old handles was removed and replaced with 2 new handles with the same keys. Also supplied with 4 keys. These handles was selected by the customer to meet there design and colour needs.
Job 4 - Entry gained into a home mortice lock Beverley I was called to a house in Beverley at 2300 where a customer was locked out of their home. Where the customer had lost their keys the mortice lock was opened using non-destructive entry methods. The Customer was back into their home within 30 minutes of calling LockForce locksmiths in Hull out of the rain. Then the lock was replaced with a British Standard Mortice lock which complies with insurance requirement. These locks come with 2 keys and the customer required an additional 2 keys which were cut on site.
Job 5 - Faulty door Lock in molescroft I was called by a customer in molescroft in Beverley, where their door wouldn’t lock and unlock. I arrived within 30 minutes and could see that the MPL was faulty so the replacement MPL was ordered and the door locked shut again until the MPL arrived the next day and was fitted that day. Also the customer upgraded their locks to anti snap.
