Recent Jobs

Job - Customer locked out in Emsworth. Key will not work in lock

Solution - Lockforce Locksmiths Portsmouth arrived within 30 minutes of the call. My first priority was to get the customer in the warmth. As I have gained access to this customer’s house before, I knew what lock type it was. So I gained entry non-destructively using locksmith methods and the customer was indoors within a minute! I tested the lock and the cam on the cylinder was faulty. I explained the locks we sell and their security benefits. The customer wisely upgraded and an anti-snap/anti-pick/anti-drill cylinder was installed. A happy and safe customer!

A family with a young child locked out on a cold Saturday evening

Solution - Lockforce were called at 18:30. The customer clearly explained the problem on the phone. I attended within 30 minutes. Upon arrival, I had a nice parking space ready for me right outside their home. The customer showed me the door and the high security lock. He had explained the locks perfectly over the phone, so I decided to use my letterbox lever to gain unforced access. The UPVC door was opened within a minute and the family were able to get back into their nice, warm home and still enjoy their evening.

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

Solution - Customer explained situation clearly over the phone. I asked for their postcode and gave them an estimated time of 35 minutes to be at their doorstep. As this required a rapid response, I left promptly and arrived at the agreed time. I arrived and checked all the options to gain entry and decided access through the front door would be quickest. 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!

I had an email from NEXA Properties regarding a new tenant requiring access to their letterbox. A new lock and 5 keys were required!

Solution - Lockforce attended within the hour. The letterbox was picked straight away and a whole bundle of post fell out of the box! I installed a new cam lock which came with 2 keys. As Lockforce provide a mobile key cutting service, I cut a further 3 keys on-site for the tenant. A quick and easy job meant a satisfied customer!

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!

Solution - The customer called me and explained clearly the issue and which lock needed to be replaced. I attended the property as soon as possible, removed standard snap cylinder lock from the upvc door and installed a new antisnap cylinder lock, all within 10 minutes! Customer now warm and more importantly much safer than before!

Locked out in portsmouth! - A customer called to advise they had locked themself outside whilst their dog was inside alone.

Solution - Lockforce Portsmouth attended within 30mins and asked the customer some questions to help assess the situation. The customer explained that the door key was inside and the door closed behind her. The best solution was to use a letterbox tool. I pulled the internal door handle downwards and the door was open straight away. The customer and dog were reunited!

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.
