Recent Jobs

Extra security bolts needed for patio doors, Gosforth, NE3 - 21st June 2022

A very nice chap called to have some added security added to his patio doors, which already had the top rated Ultion 3 star locks on. I was happy to make the chap feel a bit more secure so fitted some easy to operate door bolts which can withstand up to 1000kg pressure and not allow anything like easy entry. I left the chap feeling very happy and safe again!

Front porch door extremely difficult to manipulate and lock, Gosforth, NE3 - 14th June 2022

A lovely old chap rang as he was having issues closing and opening his porch door; he needed something doing to make it easier again for him as he had weak wrists after a recent fall. I arrived to find that the door was very badly aligned, having dropped significantly. I managed to make the door align with the frame keeps once more and made sure the locking mechanism was lubricated properly with white lithium grease. The door locked and unlocked once more just like new and the chap was able to manage it easily and was very pleased!

Euro-profile lock not allowing the key to unlock from either side, Gosforth, NE3, 7th June 2022

A nice chap rang to ask if I could help him with his euro profile barrel in his door. He couldn’t get the key in all the way on either side of the lock to unlock the door. I took a look and to me it seemed like it was the wrong key, but he insisted it was. I took the door apart and had to remove the lock to analyse the issue, however there was nothing apparent which was preventing the door from operating. Sometimes you just have to admit that the customer may just sometimes not be right!! ?? I changed the lock and provided him with 5 keys so that he wouldn’t lose his anymore!!
 

New padlock required for stuck closed garden gate, Gosforth, NE3 - 25th May 2022

A lady rang looking for a replacement padlock for her back gate as hers had corroded and she couldn’t use the key any longer. I arrived to find that the gate was completely overgrown as she hadn’t used the gate for years!! I hacked away at the overgrowth and got to the padlock, which took one tap with a hammer and it disintegrated! A new lock provided and one happy lady as a result!

Garage/utility door not closing properly, Fawdon, NE3, 18th May 2022

A lady rang to see if I could sort a door which hadn’t been closing properly for years. Of course I could! When I got to the property the door, I found had dropped out of alignment significantly and the keeps in the frame had been put on far too low for the door bolts to engage. I quick realigned the door and put the keeps in to a postion where the door would be able to be locked securely once more. A very happy lady who was going to recommend me to her golf club ladies’ team that she belonged to. Excellent for both of us!!

Callout, door lock seized, Gosforth, NE3, 11th May 2022

A lady’s daughter called to say that her mother had yet again locked herself out, leaving her keys behind in her kitchen, and the cat was driving the neighbours mad, meowing through being locked-in. I arrived quickly to open the door for the lady and her daughter and the cat stopped meowing, but it didn’t even move out of the kitchen. That’s gratitude for you!

Door furniture corroding including handles, Westerhope, NE5, 22nd April 2022

A lady rang to ask if I could do something about her corroding door handles and letterbox. I told her, very pleased with myself, that we were the main seller for Brisant-Secure “Sweet” door furniture and locks. I took a sample for her to see and she was very impressed, especially with the 20-year anti-corrosion warranty against all the line of door furniture, including door knockers! She took the whole “sweet” (hahaha) of letterbox, handles and door knocker which is now on order for her!

Front door nightlatch failing, needs replacing, Gosforth, NE3, 15th April 2022

A lady contacted me as she had been recommended by a neighbour for whom I had done work. She wanted to get a replacement nightlatch fitted to her front door as it had been difficult to lock and open. When I arrived I saw that the lock was in a very bad way and was probably 50 years old!! I showed the lady the British Standards 3621 High Security Era Nightlatch which I normally fit as a replacement, which she was very impressed with as seemed very well built. I had to make some adjustments to the door so the lock would fit properly, but she felt very secure knowing she had an insurance approved lock to supplement her safety in her property!

Door difficult to lock, Longbenton, NE12, 7th April 2022

A referral from another person in this customer’s street meant that I was able to help very quickly. I arrived to find that the door was indeed difficult to lock while it was in the door frame, but was very easy to operate when out of the door; a first sign that perhaps the door had misaligned, or dropped in the door frame. Once this happens, none of the locking bolts will engage with the keeps in the frame, which prevents the door from locking. So not only did I find that this was the case, and amended the door hinges to bring the door back to the right height, but also that the main deadlock on the centre of the door was needing alignment too as it needed to be pushed into place to lock. A simple adjustment on the door latch was all that was needed and the door operated perfectly once more. A very happy customer, who only needed to be charged for the alignment and wasn’t ripped-off for changing hardware unnecessarily. We pride ourselves on only doing what is needed to keep the cost to the customer down, so if you are worried about being taken for a ride, give us a call and we can sort your issues out at a reasonable and realistic price that will keep you smiling!

Gain entry to disused house for solicitor firm, Fawdon, NE3, 30th March 2022

A probate service called me to escort a solicitor to a house and ensure that he could enter a house under probate – the family were trying to settle a will and the house needed to be searched for evidence. I quickly gained entry and was also asked to secure the rear of the house, which I did. The solicitor was then able to gather all the mail and paperwork which had been left at the property.

Front door porch locked shut, Kenton, NE3, 22nd March 2022

A lady called as she and her family were on the way to watch her daughter graduate, but the porch door had failed and they worried when they came back later that they wouldn’t be able to get back in the house. They found me by typing in “a locksmith near me” and came up with my number. The door was a mortice lock and the lock had seized closed completely, but I managed to get it open fairly quickly and cleanly. The lady could then follow her family to the graduation which she made in time!!

Vet’s shop front door unable to open, Gosforth, NE3, 16th March 2022

An early morning call for a vet’s shop whose front door couldn’t open for the day’s business. When I say business, I mean to earn money, not the stuff that goes in the poo bags! I quickly arrived and managed to open the door and replaced the broken mortice lock and allow “business” to continue!

Locking handle failed on front door, Kenton, NE3, 19th February 2022

A lovely lady called to have her inner porch door handle changed for something very similar. Her “tulip” handle had become unreliable and loose and she wanted a replacement. I also advised that she should put a mortice lock on that same door as the handle was not the best security by itself, to which she agreed after discussing with her husband. I fitted a 5 lever British Standards mortice lock and also put a door bolt on her outer sliding door for extra security.

Bathroom window seized shut, Fawdon, NE3 - 12th February 2022

A pleasant chap rang to see if I could help him open his bathroom window. Of course this is a common problem for bathrooms as the windows (like kitchen windows) get an awful lot of use and also moisture along with dust. I managed to open the window with a little technique with an alun key to knock the mechanism and free up the window. I found that the mechanism had properly seized so had to make a replacement from van stock and the window worked perfectly once more.

Patio door had key snapped in lock and couldn’t be opened, Kingston Park, NE3 - 8th February 2022

A nice lady rang to say that her patio door key had snapped in the lock and was the only key she had left. I quickly decided that the lock would have to be removed and replaced with a new lock from van stock, which I did. The lady was delighted to have the new lock and 5 keys.

Couple just moved-in, wanted locks changed, Kenton, NE3, 14th December 2021

A young coupe and a baby had just moved-in to their new house and wanted to change the locks. Rightly so, they understood that most people spray spare keys around just in case of emergencies and wanted to make sure that nobody was in a place to take advantage of stray lost keys. I changed all the locks on the doors for High Security Ultion locks and made the couple feel very safe.

Sliding patio doors difficult to lock, Kenton, NE3, 17th November 2021

Window can’t be locked, Gosforth, NE3, 5th November 2021

A very friendly lady called looking for a locksmith in Gosforth. I cover that area and being equally as friendly as the lady, I attended happily to help repair the broken locking mechanism.

The lady was so please she gave me a nice cup of tea and a jammy dodger biscuit to say thanks!

Security survey on house, Gosforth, NE3, 21st October 2021

A lady was concerned that her house was vulnerable to burglars who had been reported very active in her area. I did my free survey of the house taking in the whole house security. The main weakness on the house was the lack of snap-proof locks on all the doors, which I changed to Ultion high security locks. I also changed the patio and front doors to the new Ultion “Lock-Lock” high security handles. The lady felt very relieved that her house was more secure.

Scout hut padlock key missing, Fawdon, Newcastle, NE3, 17th October 2021

A previous customer called me again as their property main gate padlock key had gone missing and needed opening and replacing. The padlock was a massive gate lock which was one of the biggest locks I’d seen. I managed to pick the lock quickly and replaced the padlock with something a little less frightening to the public!!

Door latch failing intermittently, Kenton, Newcastle, NE3, 12th October 2021

A nice chap contacted me as his nightlatch was starting to fail. When I arrived, I found a very old lock which required replacing as it was about 50 years old!! We put on a new keyed ERA BS High Security Lock which could be locked by key from the inside – always to be considered when fitting to a front door with glass in it. He also had a mortice lock fitted for extra security.

Intermittently sticking lock on door, in Gosforth, 2nd October 2021

We were asked to look at a door which kept on being awkward to lock and unlock, especially from the outside. We investigated and found that the lock was indeed sticking on occasions. We lubricated the lock but to no avail and had to swap out the lock. We upgraded the lock to a snap-proof lock in the process and put some new Brisant Ultion “Sweet” two star handles on the door too.
