Job: Our customer's son kept on losing the front door key so wanted an electronic code lock to avoid him being locked out whilst his parents were at work. 

Solution: We arrived at our customers home in Walton, Liverpool, L4 to give them a free quote and to see what options they had for a keyless entry on their front door so their son didn’t need a front door key to gain access to their home. When we arrived we found they had a nightlatch on their front door so knew straight away from experience that we could supply and fit a Yale electronic keyless nightlatch which allows you to open the nightlatch via a 4-6 digit code of your choosing and can be changed as many times as you choose. Our customer went with this option and was very pleased with how well it worked and the fact it didn’t look ugly on their front door. 

Job: Customer rang us up in the Tuebrook area of Liverpool needing us to come and change the mortise lock on their wooden door. The one they had was not faulty and becoming sporadically hard to lock and unlock.

Solution: On arrival at the property it was apparent that the previous locksmith who fitted the lock a week earlier didn’t have a mortise dead lock on them so shockingly decided to fit a mortise sash lock. And instead of fitting handles which would then allow the customer to turn the handle and release the latch, they had decided to put a screw in where the latch was and silicone the latch. This of course meant it got stuck in the open position but without giving it a thought that the silicone would drip down in to lock itself causing future problems. So being the professional and courteous locksmiths we are here at Liverpool Locksmiths, we supplied and fitted a new British Standard, Insurance approved mortise sash lock with nice new shiny brass handles, leaving the door working properly unlike the previous cowboy locksmith. This is why we are Checkatrade Vetted so we can let our customers know they can rely on us. Please always do your research, reviews speak volumes and can save you wasting your time and money. Not to mention avoiding any potentially more serious issues down the line. 

Job: Had a call off a customer because he was worried about his DJ equipment being stolen from his van after a friend of his van had been broken in to and he lost £1000s worth of equipment. 

Solution: Once we advised and quoted the customer about fitting Locks4vans Thatcham Accredited deadlocks to the rear and side loading doors of his Ford Transit van he instantly booked in to have them done. So after a quick call to supplier we had them the next day and we went to the customers place of work for his convenience and went about fitting his new Van Dead Locks. We have a van specially fitted out with the highest quality tools so we can do the job properly and cause no damage to the paint work and clean it down on site so there’s no chance of rust appearing in the coming months. So once they was fitted we advised the customer about what to use to keep the locks in good working order and he was that pleased with the work we done he recommended us to a friend of his and left us a review. Another happy customer always pleases us at Lockforce

Job: Customer rang us after he locked himself out of the house with the key on the inside. 

Solution: Because it was an old customer of ours he had a high security Ultion lock on the front door that can’t be picked open when the key is on the inside. That being said we was still able to gain entry non destructively. We aim to carry all the up date tools and picks so we don’t have to damage anyone’s doors locks if we don’t have to. In this case we was able to use our letterbox tool with camera fitted to direct us to the key on the inside and with our special side winder tool we was able to grab hold of the key and with the handle turn the key and unlock the door and let our customer in from the cold to thaw out. A repeat customer once again pleased with our service.

Job 19/02/2018: We had a call from a customer in Anfield, Liverpool asking if we could come out as they’d been burgled via lock snapping but this job had a twist.

Solution: When we arrived at the home it turned out she already had anti snap fitted to the front and back door but had never had them fitted to the patio door because she had a Patlock instead and thought this was safe. Well if they had been fitted with the correct spindles they would of been but because they weren't, the burglars where able to snap the top and bottom of the handle, gaining entry and making off with her bank/credit cards. Following this she decided to upgrade the patio locks to anti snap making all her doors secure from the lock snapping tactic. Whilst we were there we also fitted the correct spindles to the patlock to give her peace of mind as she was extremely worried about it happening again.

Job: Had a message through to my Lockforce Liverpool Facebook page asking could I come out and do a lock change on their front door after a burglary. 

Solution: I was expecting to arrive to a lock snapping burglary as that has been the most common tacit used recently by the burglars around Liverpool as it’s easy and almost silent. But when I got to the customers home he informed me that his wife had left the bedroom window open and left her bag on the bed with her car/house keys in and they hooked the bag off the bed and made off with the contents and car that was on their drive way. I showed the customer a video of lock snapping and the 3 options available to protect their home from lock snapping and they sensibly picked the 3* Ultion TS007 BS anti snap lock to stop this happening to them in the future. No sooner had I fitted the lock a neighbour came up and asked had they been burgled last night as they had also been burgled but they had snapped her handle and lock to gain entry to her home. When discussing it between themselves it become apparent that the burglars had been in her home at the same time the police was a few doors down in my customers house attending the call, shows how bold these burglars really are and the need to have to right locks and alarm systems fitted to deter them. 

Job 30/11/2017 Got a call off a customer in the Childwall, Liverpool saying her keyless door lock had failed and she couldn’t lock her door from the outside and the other locksmith she had called had let her down from the previous day.

Solution: When we arrived at the customers home we quickly diagnosed that the keyless door lock had failed and it would need replacing. She didn’t want to have another keyless lock fitted so asked us what options we would be able to come up with. With the handles being much bigger on the keyless locking system we would have to fit handles and come up with something else to cover the screw holes from the key lock system which no other handles on the market could cover. So after some thought we gave her the option of having normal upvc handles fitted with a key lock and to cover the hole at the top left by the keyless locking system we decided the best option would be to fit a nice door knocker that matched the handles and gave it a nice finished look that the customer was very pleased with. 

JOB 1: Called out to a burglary in the Old Swan area of Liverpool where the burglars had gained entry by snapping the handles and lock on the patio and back door. The lock snap on the back door also broke the gear box on the MPL. 

Solution: We replaced the MPL and handles on the back door along with also upgrading the original snapped lock with a Brisant Ultion 3* TS007 British Standard Anti Snap Lock so the customer didn't have to worry about the burglars gaining access via this way again. We also replaced the handles on the patio doors and replaced the remaining 3 locks with the Brisant Ultion 3* British Standard Anti Snap leaving the rest of the house safe from being targeted by burglars via the lock snapping tactic. Customer was very pleased and happy to leave us a review with Checkatrade. 

JOB 2: A local property management company that uses our services called to say they was having problems with 2 communial doors on a block of flats that they manage. The Door closers had been vandalised as to stop the doors closing behind the tenants, also the original din locks had been damaged so the doors couldn't  lock behind the tenants leaving the building open to the local kids to hang about in the blocks committing anti social behaviour. 

Solution : We replaced the 2 door closers with the correct standard closers for the size and weight of the doors allowing them to close correctly. We also replaced the 2 Din locks for higher standard Din locks as to help protect from future wear and tear and being damaged on purpose. To also stop the local kids from gaining entry via the locks we fitted Anti Thrust Plates to both doors preventing them from using something to slide down the gap of the doors and manipulating the catches and opening the doors. 

Job 3: Called out to a restaurant in Crosby, Merseyside after new owners had taken over and the drop pin on the aluminium door had came apart and wouldn't open and they also wanted the screw in cylinder locks replacing so no1 else had the keys to their property.

Solution: We removed Aluminium door so we could remove drop pin from the bottom and reconnect the bolt in the correct position so when we fitted the door back on they could open and lock it smoothly. We then replaced the screw in cylinders and supplied a further 7 keys so they had enough for all their staff. Customer happy with our work. 

Job 4: Got a call from a local Stair Lift company who had moved premises and wanted us to replace all the locks so the previous tenants didn't have keys to the property as it would be full of expensive equipment.

Solution: When we met the new owners at the property we gave them the option of having all their locks working off the same key (keyed alike) and on a coded key so no1 else but the owner could get keys cut. With the owner pleased that this could be done we then went on to supply and fit a 3* British Standard Ultion on the door, 3* British Standard half euro on their Electric roller shutter and a Brisant padlock that all worked off the same key. Customer pleased with the work carried out.

Job 5: Got a call from a facilities management company after the key to an office they look after was lost and they couldn't gain access.

Solution: We attended the office block and gained entry non destructively by picking the lock. We then changed the lock for a new upgraded anti snap thumb turn to protect them from lock snapping. We also fitted a key safe to the wall outside the office so their cleaning staff always had a key to gain access and then lock the key away securely. (Updated Monday 27th February 2017)

Job 6: Got a call from a local letting agent saying one of their properties had been broken into via someone kicking the door open causing the frame to come away and the lock to become damaged. 

Solution: Firstly when we arrived we secured the frame back into position with bigger screws so if it was to be kicked again it wouldn't come away from the wall. After that we supplied and fitted a British Standard Insurance approved Mortise lock making it more secure than before the break in and also fitted a new Yale night latch so the tenant could have an easier time opening the door to people when inside the property. 

Job 7: Got a call from a couple who had just bought a new house and wanted their Union Draw back night latch replacing as the original had become faulty, they also asked could we supply and fit a security chain on the front door so they could feel safe opening the door when people knocked. 

Solution: We went to the property and fitted their new Union draw back night latch along with their Era security chain on the door making them feel a lot more safer knowing they could open the front door to callers and have the security of the door chain in case of anything malicious going on.

Job 8: 

06/03/2017 Got a call off a customer in the Netherton area of Liverpool saying they had an attempted burglary on their home and could we come out and give them a free security check. When we arrived we found that the handle and lock had been snapped but thankfully the customer had disturbed them as he was lucky enough to of being going to the toilet.

Solution 1: We showed customer the Ultion video so they knew exactly what the burglar was trying to achieve and gave them 3 different options on locks that could counter this. After seeing the 3 different options the customer decided to opt for the Ultion 3* Anti snap cylinder which in my opinion is the best on the market at combating lock snapping. We also advised them about getting some security lights fitted into 2 different parts of the garden as to warn them that they had intruders and also about fitting an alarm system to act as a deterrent to the burglars and a warning alarm to others that the property was under attack from burglars. 

Job 9:

06/03/2017 We had a call from a customer who found us on checkatrade 
Who was wanting to get new door and window locks fitted on her new home that she had bought. 

Solution 1: When we got to the ladies home we supplied and fitted two 3* Ultion anti snap cylinders both working off the same key on the front and back door, we also supplied and fitted 3 new window handle/locks with working keys to the down stairs Windows so she could lock the Windows stopping burglars from smashing the glass and opening the window via an unlocked window handle. 

Job 10:

Had a call from a children's day centre in Walton, Liverpool asking could we come out and gain access to a digital door lock that had accidentally locked and they didn't have an access code to reopen it. 

Solution: When we arrived at the day centre the building manager said they hadn't long taken over the building and didn't have any codes for 3 of the digital locks on the office doors. So we gained entry to the locked office digital lock using our bypass tool which opens them non destructively. After we opened the lock we took apart the digital locks on all 3 doors and reset the codes to a code that suited them. Another happy customer pleased with our quick and efficient service.
