Soaked in WD40
Lockforce Locksmiths Headingley attended a emergency situation in West Park, Leeds 1/4/20 when a reported key would not turn a lock leaving the customer locked out of their own home. Lockforce Locksmiths Headingley arrived and found the Upvc locking mechnisiam seized, we did however notice everything was soaked in WD40. when asking the customer about the excess oil they admitted that the lock was very difficult about a week ago and they soaked it with wd40 and then it seemed ok until now. WD40 the standard lubricant is water based and whilst it may give you a quick help long-term it will damage the lock and like this example eventually give up. Sadly it gave up when they are locked outside. Lockforce Locksmiths Headingley advise is to contact us to ask what oils to use such as graphite oils or call us for a free inspection 07843648471 of your troubled lock much easier and less inconvenient than getting locked out

Student Fire Door Locks are you safe?
We received a call from a landlord in Headingley on Saturday 1st July 2017, he was getting ready for new students into his home that had 6 flats. He was concerned the current locks on the doors did not meet fire standards or were not safe in the event of a fire. The locks he had in place were 5 lever deadlocks which can only be opened with the use of a key from both sides. We recommended that a mortise euro lock be fitted with a thumb turn euro lock, this is were you use a key to open and unlock from the outside of the door but from the inside you use a thumb turn knob that you can quickly open the door in the event of a fire without the need for a key. If you are a Landlord or student and wish to learn more on fire safety and locks please call Lockforce Locksmiths Headingley
Key snapped in the lock
We received a call at 1am on the 24th June 2017 from a customer locked out of there own home in Headingley. The key had snapped in the lock and they were stranded outside. If your key snaps in the lock it is generally one of two reasons, firstly the key is a copied key and the key is made from very soft metal or the actual lock cylinder reached a part in the lock where it got stuck and then was forced breaking the key in the process.Normally it the second option as the multi point locking system has failed but in this case it was a just a cheap copied key that had snapped, so we extracted the key, picked the lock open and the lock was as good as new and cut some more keys using British Standard key blanks
