What locks do i use?

Euro cylinder locks come in many forms, all offering differing levels of security. At the very minimum here at Lockforce Locksmiths Redcar, we don't work with anything less than an anti snap Euro cylinder, giving substantially more protection than a standard Euro cylinder.

We also offer the ultimate in lock security with the Ultion TS0007 3* lock, yes this costs a little more but if you want the best for your home and families security, then this is by far the best option for securing your home. Ultion locks even come with a £1000 guarantee and a 10-year warranty with the lock manufacturer covering you against the functionality of the parts.

If your home or business is not secured by Police Approved, British Standard Locks, you could be extremely vulnerable. Please take a moment to watch this short video...

Local News & Info

Hot Weather affecting Doors

I have had a busy time recently due to the good weather. Did you know this affects the alignment of your doors and can make them difficult to open/close and lock/unlock? If this problem is allowed to continue it can cause irreversible damage to your Gearbox, Euro Cylinder and Multi Point Locking System. The best way to prevent this is to have your door realigned. This will preserve your locking system and save on a potentially expensive bill. If you are having issues with your doors give me a call and I can carry out a realignment for you.

High Security Lock Out - 15th Jue 2019

Lockforce locksmiths Redcar received a call from a customer who had wisely fitted 3 Star High Security Locks to their doors but managed to lose their keys! They had trouble finding a Locksmith that would deal with this situation. I responded immediately. Faced with a very difficult entry I gained entry to the property and did so with no damage to the door. I was able to replace the lock like for like leaving the customer just as secure as before. Happy customer.

Bi Fold Door mechanism fail in Redcar - 5th June 2019

A customer had Bi Fold Doors with a very old locking mechanism fitted, unfortunately it had completely failed. I was able to provide them with a temporary lock. Despite the mechanism been very old I was able to source a new part in the UK, which made the doors as good as new and saved the expense of having to purchase new doors.

Locks now compliant for insurance purposes - Redcar - 23 April 2019

Lockforce Locksmiths Redcar were contacted by a customer to request a free Home Security Survey. The customer also reported an issue locking their front door. I identified that two of their doors had old locks fitted which were not compliant with the customer’s insurance policy. I fitted new locks and realigned the front door enabling it to lock. Whilst it’s great that old locks may still be working, there is a risk that they may not meet modern day security requirements and could invalidate your insurance policy.

Urgent access provided for dental practice in Redcar – 5 April 2019

The gearbox had seized so I was able to replace it with a new one. After giving them advice on their home security, I left them safe and warm.
