Your property, family and personal belongings are at risk if you do not change our locks. Do you really want to risk someone else potentially having a key to your doors? You will never know if any of your keys are in the hands of others, so please do not assume all the keys that have been handed over to you are the only set in circulation. Please consider the following….

  • Has this property been managed before by a 3rd party (agency/friend)?
  • Have keys ever been given to a cleaner, neighbour, tradesperson or friend?
  • Was the place previously a rental property?
  • How many previous occupants has this property had with these current locks?
Any problems with your uPVC doors or windows, contact Lee your local security expert at Lockforce Locksmiths Bognor Regis on 01243 252104.

As a homeowner, you should be aware that most home insurance companies require your locks need to be insurance approved and meet the British Standard (BS3621). If your locks in your home do not meet this standard, then it is highly likely your home insurance will be invalid in the event of a break in. Please do not put yourself and your possessions in any unnecessary danger and check your locks today. 

If your lock displays the following logo then it is a British Standard lock. In the image below, you will see one of our insurance approved, mortice locks.

If you are at all unsure, contact Lockforce Locksmiths Bognor Regis today. We offer a FREE home security survey to ensure your property meets all the necessary home insurance requirements and we can best advise you on any improvements or upgrades needed.

New homeowner required extra security for front door - Bognor Regis – 10th May 2019

Lockforce Locksmiths Bognor Regis were called out by a new homeowner as they wanted to upgrade the security of their new home. We arrived at the agree time and identified that the customer only had a night latch (Yale Lock) on their wooden front door. This type of lock offers little security and should only be used as a secondary lock. A British Standard deadlock was therefore installed to the front door. I also changed the rim cylinder lock in order that the homeowner had peace of mind that they were the sole owner of the keys for their existing lock. Lockforce Locksmiths Bognor Regis also improved the appearance of the front door by installing a new letter plate and pull handle. The customer was extremely happy, as were we knowing they were safe and secure in their new home.

The current lock was only a standard 5 lever sash lock. To meet most home contents insurance requirements, it is stipulated that BS3621 locks should be installed to exit doors. The owner agreed, and upgraded locks to British Standard were installed.

Another happy customer for Lockforce Locksmiths Bognor Regis.

The customer now has total peace of mind that they are the sole owner of the keys to their new property!

Front composite door not locking

Problem - Lockforce Locksmiths met the customer and they explained that a previous Locksmith had been called out and could not resolve the problem. The 3 problems were - door not aligned, key wouldn’t turn fully in lock and Multi Point locking system fitted incorrectly. 

Solution - Firstly, the multi point locking system was removed and identified that the locking hooks had not been screwed on to the mechanism. This was resolved easily and then the MPL was re-installed. This also meant the door would now lock securely. We then identified which hinges required adjusting for the composite door to close properly. The hinges were adjusted and the door could now close and be locked safely and securely! The customer was extremely happy!

Customers front door will not close

Solution - I arrived at the customer’s home and assess the upvc front door. The door required realignment. Firstly I adjust the hinges to make the upvc door align to the frame, then engage the multi point locking system and find they all engage apart from the deadbolt. I slightly adjust the deadbolt keep and the door locked. Customer now has a upvc door which is aligned and locks safe and secure for their family!

Customer locked out in the rain

Solution - Being a local emergency locksmith, I was able to attend the customer’s house within 10 minutes. I used the latest locksmith techniques to gain unforced entry. The customer’s door was open in a few minutes and they were inside in their dry and warm home.

Customer called me from Middleton-on-Sea at 6am. Their key had snapped in the door.

Solution - Lockforce Locksmiths Bognor Regis attended their house within 20 mins. As the customer was distressed, my priority was to ensure the customer was safe and warm in this winter weather. I kept the customer warm by insisting they stayed in my van with my jacket around them (and the heaters on). I then extracted the snapped key nice and quickly. As the cylinder lock wasn’t engaged, I was able to gain entry non-destructively using locksmith methods. The customer was then able to get back in the warmth. I explained to the customer the reason for the key snapping was their front door needed realigning. I adjusted the hinges and the door closed safely and securely. Emergency over - customer safe!

Customer had purchased new handles for UPVC door. But the spindle was the wrong length

Solution - Lockforce Locksmiths Bognor Regis attended the customer’s home and assessed the problem. The issue was the split spindle was too short and not engaging with the handles. A new spindle was installed and the handles put on. Whilst putting everything together, I removed the euro cylinder. I informed the customer it was a cheap £3 factory fitted cylinder that could easily be snapped. I explained that Lockforce only supply anti snap locks as standard. The customer upgraded to an anti snap/ anti bump/ anti pick euro cylinder. Even though the lock and handles were new, the UPVC door wouldn’t close smoothly. I explained that having the UPVC door realigned ASAP would save them money long term. The customer took my business card and said he will contact me on pay day!

I was then instructed to remove and install a new night latch and rim cylinder lock on the ex-tenant’s door. The door had a lot of previous damage done to it. A lot of woodwork changes were required to ensure the night latch was installed securely. After nearly an hour of hard work the lock was installed and the door could close to make the property safe and secure for the landlord.

Solution - Lockforce received the emergency call and attended the customers property. A full home security survey was undertaken and appropriate recommendations presented to the customer. They agreed to have all locks upgraded on all 5 exit doors as well as their garage lock changed. All the rear exit doors were fitted with an anti-snap lock and were keyed alike.

Solution - I arrived and awaited for the police to survey the property first. I then entered the house and engaged with the customer to see what security they required. They wanted all door locks changed and the front door repaired. As per procedure, I put shoe covers and latex gloves on to start work. I installed 2 antisnap cylinder locks on the rear upvc french doors and also realigned the doors to close smoothly. On the front upvc door I installed a new gearbox, new handles and an antisnap cylinder lock. The house was now all secure and much safer than before.

When I arrived the customer was in the house as the back door was unlocked, however the front door key was still stuck in the lock .The key came out within seconds using the correct tools.

Locked out in Littlehampton

Solution- Lockforce Locksmiths arrived at the house within 20 minutes. I offered the customers the opportunity to keep warm in my van, but they were happy to wait and watch. The backdoor was not accessible, so the front door was the only option to gain access. The lock was picked and the customers were in the warm after 15 minutes.

Missing key!

A local lettings agent rang me at Lockforce to ask for an electrical/storage cupboard to be unlocked. The key had gone missing!

Solution - The cupboard door was outside and exposed to all the elements and the cylinder lock and handles were in poor condition. I removed the handles and snapped the cylinder off, then installed an anti-snap lock and replaced the handles. Job all done in 15 minutes!

Seized cylinder lock

Lockforce Portsmouth were called by a customer explaining to me that their door and locks were over 20yrs old! The key would still lock the door, but the key was getting stuck and not turning freely. I tried to release the cylinder but it was not moving (even with penetrating oil). So I took the handles off and snapped the cylinder. I checked the gearbox and would you believe, after over 20 years it still worked like new, however it wasn't as secure as it could be so I upgraded them to an anti-snap cylinder!

Immediate lock change required
