Lock out in Portsmouth - Customer locked out of their house with their keys inside and food shopping in the car

I used a letterbox lever tool to gain access for the customer. The door opened straight away and they were able to get their shopping in the freezer before it melted! 

To attend an eviction for a local landlord

Lockforce Locksmiths Portsmouth attended the location at the agreed time. Upon arrival, we were informed the tenant had already left the property. The landlord instructed us he would like the locks changed so the options were explained, he actually decided to not just change but upgrade the locks to anti-snap for added security. The UPVC door was still not closing properly due to a faulty spindle and buckled handle. These parts were removed and we managed to save costs by straightening the handle. The correct length spindle was installed and the UPVC door closed properly. This meant the property was now safe and secure for the Landlord and future tenants. 

New letterbox keys!

Key snapped in rear door lock in Portsmouth

Solution - I attended the customer’s property and surveyed the issue. The whole length of the key had snapped in the lock, but the door was not locked. The customer said the lock was a challenge to make secure every night. I used my key extractor set at first, but could not remove the key. So I removed the Euro lock cylinder by removing the retaining screw. I explained to the customer that the lock was a cheap Euro lock and I showed them how easy they are to be snapped. I replaced the lock with an anti snap lock to make the customer safer in their home!

Lost door key in Portsmouth! - A customer called after leaving her door key at the Christmas party!

Window lock replacement in Fratton - A returning customer called to say that they would like more window locks installed.

Solution - I installed a few window locks to this customer in Fratton last week, so I knew what style of handle lock was required. Most of them were working, but were very stiff. Plus they all needed keys supplied as all the old locks had broken keys. I installed 2 new window locks to the bathroom this time.

15 November 2018 - Job - A customer in Fratton called to say that their UPVC front door with broken hinges that needed fixing.

Solution - Lockforce attended the job and surveyed the door, 2 new hinges were ordered and installed a few days later. We also serviced the gearbox and ensured the UPVC door was realigned perfectly. The door now closes propery and the cusromer can feel safe in their own home.

3rd November 2018 - Job - Customer's disabled son kept letting himself out of the rear Kitchen door, so she wanted locks fitting.

Solution- I surveyed the options and noticed the rear door had a thumbturn lock, for safety reasons. I explained to the customer that replacing the thumbturn lock with a key cylinder is safest, rather than installing a kitchen door lock. So I got to work and completed the job in no time. 

25th October 2018 - Job - Customer’s rear MPL system had become stuck and the door would not lock

Solution - Lockforce Locksmiths Portsmouth were called round.....we removed the MPL and checked all parts, noticed the gearbox had a broken part inside which was causing the mechanism to not function. So replaced the gearbox and serviced the existing MPL for the customer. The door now closed and locked perfectly!

15th October 2018 - Job - Customer’s key would not open their door.

Problem - Customer rang me upon returning from their holiday to find her front door key would not open the latch on the door. I turned up within 30 minutes and surveyed the options with the customer. The back door had a padlock on it internally. The upstairs window was open, but was above a conservatory with a perspex roof, therefore the risk was too high to attempt entry. 

Solution - Whilst the customer waited with her next door neighbour, I drilled the lock and gained entry within 15 minutes. I then fitted a new rim cylinder and kept the existing nightlatch. I noticed the wooden door was also out of line, so I readjusted the fittings. The customer then came back out from the neighbours house and was happy to discover she not only had access but also that her sticky front door now closed smoothly! 

4th October 2018 - Job - Customer rang Lockforce Bognor Regis to say their lock cylinder was loose.

When I arrived I asked the customer for their key. I inserted the key and within seconds I could pull the cylinder out easily. They had cylinder retaining screw in place!! The retaining screw holds and centralises the cylinder lock in place. I then explained to the customer how easy it would have been for an intruder to enter their house. I also showed them their cylinder and explained it was a weak standard snap cylinder. They took my advice and upgraded to an anti-snap cylinder. They also had a new retaining screw in place!!

27th September 2018 - Job: Front door not closing and a wobbly door handle on back door.

Problem 1: The customer informed me his front door was not aligned correctly and wasn’t closing flush. I noticed the door latch plate was loose because the screw was threaded and not holding the plate in position. Solution: I replaced the screw with a slightly larger thread and also realigned the plate. Door closed perfectly!

Problem 2: Customer showed me the handle was loose on his back door. I took it apart and noticed the interior of the handle was rusty and the interior plastic parts were also broken. Solution: I replaced the handle with a new one and whilst I was there also completed a free security assessment of the locks, made my recommendations to increase the security of the property and the customer took my advice. Supplied and fitted two new British Insurance approved Euro cylinders to the front and back doors.
