High Security lock upgrade and window lock jam Burradon, NE12 - 18th May 2021

Lockforce Newcastle were called to make a survey of the current locks on a house in Burradon NE12. The owner had heard that their locks were likely not to be snap-proof locks and needed reassurance that they would be enough to deter thieves. After carrying out the analysis of the locks at the rear of the property, we did find indeed that the locks were not installed correctly as the outside barrel of the locks was protruding too far past the handles and that they locks weren't snap-proof. We set about changing the patio doors, including the lock on the slave door, to a high security Brisant Ultion lock, who we are partnered with to install their locks. We told the client that the locks had excellent resilience to break-in, especially against snapping, which is nearly 80% of forced entries being made currently.

Lock sticking and Door Jammed in North Shields, NE29 - 14th May 2021

Lockforce Newcastle were asked by a prospective customer in North Shields whether there was anything that we could do to try fix a front door which was needing so much effort to close it was waking up the whole street when it slammed late at night! When we arrived at the property and examined the door, it was immediately apparent that the door no longer sat at the right alignment to the frame. Over time, this meant that the door lock didn’t quite fit snug into the door latch and meant that the lock began to stick. Eventually the owners had been using the key to try and lock the door with such force that the lock mechanism began to fail and was intermittently not opening at all! Fortunately, all our vans carry sufficient stock to be able to make the replacement lock available straight away and we were able to fit the new lock immediately. We also made sure that the door alignment was corrected and that meant that the lock and door could work together in harmony with each other, as it should! One happy customer, saying “At last no more eggs being thrown at the house for having woken up the whole street at night with the slamming doors!!” Another peaceful, safer and happier neighbourhood having had 2 years of crunching locks and slamming doors coming to an end after a half-hour visit from Lockforce Newcastle!!
