Anthony Walker

I would recommend Lockforce to anyone. Carl, the guy who came to us remained calm and pleasant the whole time he was tackling what turned out to be a difficult job. Nothing was a problem for him even when my girlfriend and I were losing our heads! Just a nice chap who solved our problem. Quick call out time and he stayed really quite late to help out! Thank you very much!!

Andrew Brennan

When my wife confessed to snapping the key off in the door at home you'd have thought the world was about to end. Not so. A call to Carl saw him arrive promptly to resolve our issue with the minimum of fuss. Trauma averted. I will have no problem in recommending this first class service to anyone needing lock services.

Shipley, 23rd January 2019

New lock fitted

“Great Service, rang up at 1pm, appointment booked for 4pm the same day. Carl turned up at the due time - he even sent a text 15 minutes before hand. Price agreed up front. Lock changed, quickly and professionally.”

I looked at a lot of Locksmith companies and phoned a few before I decided on Lockforce. The reason for Lockforce was they sounded very professional and I read there reviews and felt comfortable in getting a good service. 10/10 service had my locks upgraded to the Ultion type snap locks and also a camera spy fitted to my door bell which I can now watch on my phone fantastic. Thanks.”

Frequently Asked Questions

The most common question Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford get asked is “how much is a lock fitting please....?” well with over a thousand different types of locks available that question can be a long answer. What Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford always recommends is we offer a free call out to survey your lock and give you different options should you need a new lock. Often the customer cannot lock their door and assume they need a new lock when in fact the door lock is working absolutely fine the issue is the door alignment not the lock. Lockforce Locksmiths carry over 10,000 different lock parts on our vans so I am sure we can identify the issue and give you a no obligation quote to repair or replace

Cant Pay, Take it away.

Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford are asked to attend many Warrant and Evictions in Bradford, we ask if you are a Landlord please try and talk to your tenants in the first instance as the court route can be a very long and stressful event, we often find properties are trashed and the Landlord losing thousands of pounds in unpaid rent and damage repairs. However if you need a professional Locksmiths service in such circumstances please call Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford for a quote today

Do you fit Alarms and CCTV

Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford can fit wireless alarms and we have Technicians within the Lockforce brand that can fit or quote you for any CCTV. However Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford would always advise Bradford customers to first check your locks are Anti Snap and prevent a burglary through your door locks. If you are unsure if your locks are Anti Snap please call Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford for a free no obligation security survey.

Key Opens one side but not the other

Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford often get asked this question, the good news is that if you have a mortise lock and the key works one side but not the other the chances are the actual lock will be ok the problem will be the key either it is a poor copied key not the original or if it is the original it will be chipped. If you have a UPVC door with the same problem then the pins inside the lock could be trapped, try using some graphite oil to release the pin, if you have no graphite oil you could use wd40 but this is not the oil to use but it may help you out of a tricky situation but the lock will need to be changed as this will not be a long term fix.

Key just spins in the lock

This is a very common asked of Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford and often the situation is a emergency call as the customer is locked out of their own home. When the key just spins in the lock a lot will depend on the lock type you have, if the door is a Upvc, patio or Composite door a key spinning could be that the key is a copied key and is not long enough to catch the internal cam and open the door, other common reasons are the lock is working fine but the internal gearbox is at fault. If you have wood door then the common reason is the bolt thrower inside the lock has broken. Whatever the circumstances unless you have another door you can gain entry to and try the key on the inside of the problem the door give Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford a call.

Key works from one side but not the other

The is a very frequent question that Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford receives nearly as much as once a day. Many customers take keys to be cut by local shops or supermarkets and return home to find the key works on just one side of the lock, this will in most cases happen on a Mortise lock and the key is not cut correctly. The lock will be fine just the key that will be the problem, However if this happens on a Upvc or Cylinder lock in the majority of cases a pin is stuck in the chamber and will need to be released, some graphite oil should do the trick. Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford can cut extra keys for all the locks they fit.

Insurance Standards

It is always worth reading your insurance renewal letter and the T&C, all Insurance companies will advise that your door mortise locks are fitted with BS3621 Locks and the majority will ask for BS3621/2007. It will also state that you have a Multi Point Locking system on UPVC doors and composite doors. However certain insurance companies state that you have 5 or 7 multi point locking system. Also stated is window locks must have a key operation, again we find many people are unaware of their policy. If you are unsure please call Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford and we are more than happy to help and give free advise


Many customers of Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford ask us should they maintain their new and old locks with WD40, the answer is a big NO. The Standard WD40 is a water based solution and this can dry up moving elements in your locks. We would always recommend Graphite oils or special lock oils for certain type of locks. In fact a lot of the new high security locks if using wd40 can invalidate your warranty. Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford can supply you with the service oils and advise you what to buy to maintain the life of your locks

Safe Locked Batteries Dead

At Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford we receive hundreds of calls from customers who have a safe locked and no keys to open it. This is usually when the digital keypad for number codes has batteries that have died, but sadly the override key has gone missing or worse still is locked inside the safe. Dont worry in the majority of cases Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford can pick open the lock and reunite the customer with their keys and possessions inside the safe. However now the bad news if your safe does not have a override lock then depending on the safe make this will be a challenge to open. There is some Locksmiths skills to still open the safe but in our opinion if you ae looking at purchasing a new safe always buy a safe with a override lock.

Gate Lock key snapped

Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford attended a customer in Wibsey, Bradford today 22/4/19 when the key snapped off in the garden steel gate lock. The gate was locked and she could not access the rear garden.

A few keys copied and Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford were quickly back on the road to the next Bradford customer in need of Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford.

Hot Weather causes havoc

The recent hot weather spell in Bradford caused a lot of problems for many householders with Upvc patio doors, the reason was the heat had made the door swell and the door would not sit in the casing of the door frame. Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford attended over 15 such situations where the door would not lock and in some case the customers had forced up the handle in a attempt the lock the door and only resulted in snapping and breaking the multi point locking system. If your door is stiff to lock already then with heat this will be almost impossible and could lead to a emergency call out. Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford advise is give us a call now as a alignment fee is much cheaper than replacing your locking system.

Sliding UPVC Patio Door

On 2nd January 2018 we received a Telephone call from a customer in Bingley, Bradford who obtained our details from the Check and vetted website having seen Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford are Trading Standards approved. The issue with the patio door lock was the hooks on the Multi Point Locking system were not working and the customer could not open door. On inspection after we had opened the door non destructively using our Locksmith tools we found the actual mechanism often called the Multi Point Locking system was at fault and the gearbox control unit was broken. However the make model and type of system is now discontinued and the customers was worried she might need a new door. Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford then started to strip the whole system down to the bare bones with every screw nut and bolt removed and repaired and built all back together and all was as good as new.

Gate Locks

We received a call from a commercial premises this week 30th November 2018,wanting a self locking devise fitted to their gate. This was so when anybody entered, the gate would lock and close behind them, but from the inside you could twist a thumbturn to exit. This was used in conjunction with the wired intercom system and camera. Lockforce Locksmiths Leeds also cut extra keys on site all 30 of them for all members of staff. Lockforce Locksmiths a cut above the rest.

Padlocks what types to buy?

Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford are often asked, What different types of padlocks are there? Padlocks come in many varieties, strengths and sizes. From the very small little ones found on pocket diaries to the ones you find on metal shipping containers. Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford are often called to many situations where a padlock key is lost or has broken and often customers are astonished how easy we make it look to remove and open a padlock. Here we go through some of the most common types of padlocks available on the market today. We hope you’ll get a better idea to the options out there, and if you have questions on padlocks, locks or if you have other security questions. Please feel free to contact Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford on any of the numbers at the top of this page 24 hours a day. A closed shackle padlock is a high security padlock. Much of the lock loop is enclosed and out of easy cutting range from any cutting tool. They are often very heavy duty, and suitable for the locking of units, outdoor and indoor storage, lockers and more. In many cases where insurance is involved. This type of lock is the minimum requirement for what would be considered secure and passable. A padlock called a straight shackle padlock is much the same as a closed shackle padlock. As the name suggests the loop is here instead in a straight shape and the lock is often a square or rectangle. A discus padlock is a design which is not spring loaded. This means that if a drill is used the lock will still remain engaged. These are highly secure, but also difficult to open should there be a lockout situation. Long shackle padlocks provide you with an extended loop of toughened steel but our more vulnerable from a attack.

Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford would always recommend a closed shackle Padlock.

The sky is the Limit

We received a very unusual call on the 15th October 2018 from the Multi Flying school at Leeds and Bradford Airport. The request was the key had been lost to a Helicopter due for a routine service, the key was needed to reset the service mileage calculator. The unit was located under the seat so it was extremely difficult to reach and pick mostly blind a very tricky job! Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford managed to open the lock so that access could be gained to the unit and organise a replacement key. 

36 Postbox Locks, yes 36  

Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford fitted new Post-box locks for apartments in Shipley this week 25th September. The post box locks were installed in a new build complex and had 36 post box locks to the unit and the builders had lost all keys so Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford had the task of lock picking every single post box lock yes 36 of them and change the lock for a new lock with new keys. Our locking picking skills put to the test and sore fingers by the last one !

Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford like the postman knocks more than once we do it 36 times 

Digital Locks at Royal Bradford Infirmary

The system also has built in PIR sensors and can activate your mobile devise even if somebody walks up to your front door. Equally if they call the door bell you can see the image and even talk to the person stood outside your front door from your phone even if you are away from your home. To learn more about this latest technology call Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford today 

Key left in Lock

Most people are unaware that a UPVC door – or door that has a standard euro or oval cylinder in it should never be left with a key left in the back. If you do a couple of things could go wrong – firstly if another key holder wit the same key set, tries to unlock the door from the other side inevitably you break the lock barrel. This is due to the fact that the lock barrel does not understand how when one side is engaged the other side is trying to engage at the same time. This is too advanced for a cylinder and breaks it . So if you have many householders with keys for the door please make everybody aware that once you unlock the door you need to take your keys out! Today on Sunday 28th January Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford attended a property in Baildon, Bradford for a lady who had exactly this problem. She had unlocked the door knowing her husband was coming home. He arrived and tried to unlock the already unlocked door, and ending up locking it again and actually snapping the key in the barrel. So we ended up changing the lock barrel to a modern Anti snap for the lady and all was okay again however it was an expensive lesson to learn. So remember the best advise is not to leave a key in the back of a lock you risk a the barrel breaking or your key snapping in the lock. Remove your keys and put them somewhere out of sight.

Burnt Blow Torch Attacks

We have this January 2018 seen more burglary attacks in Bradford where the thieves have used blow torches on upvc doors and snapped locks, even some fitted snap safe locks have not prevented them gaining entry to homes. This new method of attack using a blow torch can still break a high security Anti snap lock. There is only a few selected locks that can withstand this new form of attack. Please call Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford to learn more .

Police Approved Keysafes

Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford received a call today 18/11/17 from a elderly customers who had been the victim of a burglary. The attackers had gained entry by opening the outside keysafe with a hammer and screwdriver and simple let themselves into the property. This attack is mainly aimed at elderly people who have keysafes and have the very basic entry level units fitted. Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford recommend the C500 Police Approved keysafe which we fitted today 18/11/17 at a property in Shipley.

Ghosts Locked out!!

One of our funniest lock outs happened this week in Baildon, Bradford on 30th October 2016, our customer had been to Halloween party dressed as a Ghost and returned home to find the UPVC door lock would not open and she was locked out. We arrived to much amusement of the neighbours to find our Ghost sat next to the front door. We quickly opened the door using bypass tools and repaired the broken Multi Point Locking system before the trick or treat kids arrived!

Storm in a tea cup

We received a call from a lady in Bradford on Monday 16th October, informing us that she had lost her key for the back door of the house.

Padlock by Ultion

Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford are proud suppliers of the Brisant range of locks and we received a call from a repeat customer on the 1st September 2017 who had previously had the Ultion locks fitted to their property by Lockforce Bradford Locksmiths on the 21st August 2017. They now had a Garden gate fitted and wanted to have the same key for the front door as the gate. Problem solved a new padlock was ordered using the Ultion key code so both the front door and padlock are operated from the same key. 

Café Closed Bradford Low Moor

We attended a Café at the Low Moor Industrial Estate in Bradford today 16th August 2017 to open 12 Shutter Locks that had Yale type bullet locks fitted to them, the owner has lost his keys. We then had to open the main door locked with a 5 lever Mortise. All locks opened and changed by the time the bacon butties were cooked and the café full of happy customers.

Argos Shipley

This week on Friday 14th July we visited the Argos store in Shipley, a Emergency door would not open from the inside the panic bar would not release the lock. For Fire regulations the door must be opened quickly by means of pushing down on the bar and this will release the dead lock.  When examining the problem it became evident that the problem was not the lock but the rebate on the door frame was broken from vandal's or a attempted break in. Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford repaired the frame and fitted a new rebate and the lock  now works like new. Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford keeping our high street shops safe.

Sash Jammers to doors and windows a cheap but effective security aid

We attended a recent burglary in Baildon on Friday 7th July and the Police had recommend fitting sash jammers to the house doors and windows. Sash jammers are a very cost effective way to secure doors and windows on UPVC frames, they work by a sliding metal bar that stops any movement of the casing, very good especially on windows. If you would like more information on sash jammers please call us today or click here to visit our Facebook page 

Horse riding cancelled?

A rather different call was taken on the 24th June 2017 from a Horse Riding Stable in Baildon, Bradford the lock on the stable door was seized and they could not open it to remove the horses for the children's horse riding lessons. We arrived within 20 minutes and found the door had a very old 5 lever mortise lock and the bolt thrower had collapsed, with the help of some very interested children who enjoyed shining the torch at the lock we managed to get the door open and let the lessons begin. A new modern BS3621/2007 5 Lever Yale lock was fitted and 10 new keys cut on site, just need a bath now !

Outside Key Safe

We called to a customers house on the 3rd June to fit a Key Safe to the outside wall to a house of a property in Bradford. The customer a elderly lady wanted a key safe so that in case she could not get to the door the nurse carer could open the key safe with the security code and use the key to let herself in. Key safes are made from high security iron and steel and are mounted to the brick with 4 inch reinforced screws if you have elderly relatives it maybe worth fitting a key safe then please call Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford today.

Hospital Thumbturn

We visited Lynfield Mount Hospital in Bradford on 25th May to a emergency situation, a door to a clinic room would not open and the key to the lock was just spinning and the door would not open. The lock was a thumbturn lock on the inside, this is when you need quick exit to turn a knob to open the door but from the outside the lock looks like a standard Yale type lock called a euro cylinder. We opened the door using bypass tools in no time and fitted a new Euro Thumbturn cylinder and master suited the key to the other doors. Emergency over.

Emergency in Shipley

On Thursday 18th May 2017 Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford were called to help the Police to open the door of a elderly man in Shipley, the neighbours had called the Police because they feared for the mans health. The daughter of the man arrived and asked me to open the locked door to gain access and check her father was at home and hopefully in good health. The door was a composite door with a multi point locking system but we were able to pick open the lock causing no damage to either the lock or the door. The elderly man was indeed well and had not heard the commotion outside his house due to his flat batteries in his hearing aid. It was relief all round and time to put the kettle on.

The 19th Hole

Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford attending a Lock problem at South Bradford Golf Club on Friday 12th May. The problem was the garage unit that housed all the motor buggies, would not open with the key and was seized shut. Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford attended in less than 30 minutes and found a big queue waiting with golfers waiting to get their buggies. The Lock indeed was broken the cam inside the lock unit had collapsed, using lock bypass tools we opened the door in no time, allowing all the gofers to get their buggies and get to the 1st tee!

The Lock needed replacing and we also cut 15 keys for all the members who used the buggies, it was then a quick soft drink at the 19th Hole then off to another job.

CCTV , Alarm and Anti Snap Locks

Following a break in 9th May 2017 the customer wanted  to secure her property to the highest possible standards at a good price. Lockforce Locksmith Bradford fitted a Wireless Alarm system that was also connected to the CCTV cameras. What the customer really likes about this system is the ability to watch , video or a take a snap shot all from your smart phone or ipad. All doors were secured with the award winning Ultion 3 star locks and coded to the same key.

Locks to Insurance Standards

Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford received a call from a customer who had used Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford before but had now moved house and with security in mind wanted all the locks changing on the new property. Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford carried out a free property security survey and recommended the locks be upgraded to meet the British Standards BS3621/2007 Police and insurance approved. If you are unsure if your locks meet your insurance needs, take a look on the actual lock you should see a code reading “BS3621/2007”

Another insurance requirement is that all locking window handles such as upvc have a key to unlock and lock, again window lock keys are usually very small and often get misplaced, but such a small requirement will invalidate your insurance. Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford were able to cut a new key for the window keys and the property was left secured and insurance approved.

Problems at the Pump

A very unusual job this week for Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford. A petrol station called us in a panic as one of the petrol pumps lock was broken and they could not open the pump to turn off the supply to allow a refuel.
Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford attended to this emergency in less than 15 minutes from the first call.
The issue was the cam lock Lever pins had stuck and the key would not fit, using our high resolution pick lock gun we could free the stuck pin lever in the lock.
We replaced the lock and matched it to another pump so the Co-op petrol station need not have to have new keys cut

UPVC Lock Problems

Is your UPVC door difficult to lock, maybe you have to really force the handle up to lock? maybe the door struggles to close? A customer in Bradford was locked out of there home today when the UPVC door also called a multi locking door system snapped and locked the customer out of there own home. This is very common, the lock had been difficult to lock for weeks and the only way to lock the door was to really force handle, this in turn broke the locking system. Lockforce Locksmith Bradford attended and opened the door using special bypass locksmith tools, we then stripped the door and replaced the faulty gearbox and refitted allback to normal and aligned the door all within 30 mins of the call. If you have stiff UPVC locks, please call us today

Lock Identification 

At Lockforce Locksmiths in Bradford we are Trading standards approved and with that level of vetting also requires us to be equipped for any type of lock call out, that is why at Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford we carry over 10,000 different lock parts on our vans. It helps us to get as much information from our customers as possible so we are also equipped to give you a accurate quotation before we arrive. Please find below a list of the most common locks in the Bradford district

Euro Cylinders

Euro Cylinder barrel locks are commonly found in UPVC doors, composite doors, sliding doors in residential properties and also in aluminon doors in commercial properties. The Majority of euro locks are fitted in UPVC doors and this is where you lift the handle then turn the key to lock. The key is usual a smaller round headed key

Mortice Lever Locks

Mortice locks are mostly found in wooden doors and be anything from 2, 3 and 5 lever, this is normally printed on the side of the lock called the faceplate. On the plate is also may read British Standards BS362/2007 this is the latest insurance standards and if your locks do not have that stamped on them they would need upgrading to comply with your insurance needs. The Mortise locks generally have traditionally a longer key type.

Nightlatch Locks

Nightlatch locks are very common and often referred to as a Yale lock, these locks self lock behind you when you close the door or have a hold back facility rto stop the latch locking. The snub also can be used to lock the door to deadlock when inside the property. The locks have two different types a British Standard version which has a secure deadbolt and also these locks meet insurance requirements of BS3621/2007 the other difference us they generally will have a  lever bar on the inside of the door rather than a knob turn and have a security plate at the front of the door hiding the keyway. The standard traditional Nightlatch is widely known as a Yale because the majority are made by Yale the manufacturer, these lock types are very similar to the British Standard Night latches but often do not have a deadlocking system and do not meet insurance requirements. The traditional Nightlatch is a great secondary lock when used in conjunction with a Mortise lock on a wooden door. It also used on student accommodation as this lock does meet Fire regulations

MPL - Multi Point Locking systems

Multi point locking systems or often called MPL systems are found mainly on UPVC doors, patio doors, sliding doors and Composite doors. If you have to lift your handle then turn the key to lock your door it will be a Multi point Locking system, also to the door edge you will see the door will have a combination of Dead bolts, Hooks, Pins, Mushroom bolts and lever locks. If you can see a name on the steel plate that will narrow down the search for the system, makes such as Yale, Wink Haus, ERA, GU, Safeware, FHUR, Paddock, KFV, Ferco, Maco, Fullex, Avocet, Kenrick, Mila, Millenco, Roto, Fabfix and lots more can be found on the faceplate.. However Lockforce Locksmiths Bradford carry hundreds of parts and I am sure we will have your make in our stocked vans.

If you have a different lock to the ones above such as aluminon door, sliding door, antique locks etc please call us or send us a quick photo to or text 07843648471 and we can respond with a accurate quote to replace your lock or identify the issue.


I am pleased to provide a 5 star review for first class service, quality and understanding. Our incident involved an elderly relative who had locked herself into her flat, and gone off to bed poorly. We couldn’t get through for two days, so had to take action.

Karl gave us the best advice, the unbreakable door lock cannot be defeated. He stopped on his way through to another job on the opposite side of Leeds, sensing our emergency. Not only did he provide expert advice, he said he would come back later in the day to change the lock after we had gained entry through an upstairs window, and delivered on his promise. He gave the best advice to us about a different type of lock to prevent a repeat episode, something the door fitters should have been aware of! We are so grateful the swift response, understanding of the crisis and coming back later the same day to sort the problem out. Many thanks.

Broken Lock in a tenanted Property.

From: Mr Sandip Patel

“Carl was great he was very knowledgeable when I first contacted him. You can tell he is honest and to be honest I called another tradesman who increased the work and did not know how to complete the job. Carl kept me informed sent me the pictures and then invoiced me. I live in Manchester and the job was in Bradford so was great to use somebody who you can trust. Will certainly recommend and would use him again. Thanks again Carl!”

Replacement Bathroom Lock

From: Mr C Williams

Having teenage children i wanted a lock fitting to my Bathroom door. I called three other Locksmiths companies listed on Yell but 1 didn't even answer and the other 2 would not give me a quote or offered a free call out survey. Lockforce gave me both a approx price and a free no obligation call out. It was Carl who arrived and the quote given was actualy less than the quote on the phone as the door was not a solid door 
very pleased with the work, lock and very clean working

Mrs Preston, Appeley Bridge, Bradford

4 locks replaced.

“Carl visited to make recommendations and quote for replacing 4 locks. He gave options and explained the differences well. He was able to complete the job there and then. He took a little over the predicted half hour but this was because he also fixed an existing problem with the front door, which he was concerned could cause a key to snap in the new locks. Friendly and courteous for the whole visit, he arrived with his overshoes to hand and I would not hesitate in recommending him.”

We'd used Lockforce at our old house and we were extremely pleased with Carl's work so had no hesitation in calling on his services again. He was very prompt and pleasant on both occasions and the prices were very good. Excellent service all round and highly recommended.

Sarah Brown - Facebook Review

I got locked out of my flat and Carl was there within 30 minutes and i was back in my flat in less than a minute. Worth every penny and a really nice guy too - thank you!


Abigail Marchant - FACEBOOK REVIEW

Carl was phoned at very short notice and was available on a weekday evening within 20 minutes. He did an amazing job and was able to secure our home within 10 minutes. Hopefully I won't need to use him again but if I ever did need the locks sorting I'd know who to ring. Thanks.
