Lock Problems in Salford
As a Local Locksmith in Salford we come across a lot of similar issues with doors and windows so I thought I would list some common lock faults we get around Salford and some frequently asked questions. Hopefully by listing some typical Lock problems and possible solutions we can speed up the process to getting your issue resolved as fast as possible and if you don't see your issue on here please contact Lockforce Locksmiths in Salford on 07464 755 943.
Do Lockforce Locksmiths Salford Charge a Call Out Fee? No, Lockforce Locksmiths Salford do not charge a call out fee as we pride ourselves on being honest and trustworthy and only charge for work that is completed.
My Key is Turning But Nothing Happens? As a Locksmith in Salford I get this more commonly than some of the other lock issues. This typically happens on both UPVC doors with Euro cylinders and also wooden doors with Mortis Sash locks. In the UPVC doors the typical issue is the cam on the cylinder which is not rotating to engage with the Multi Point Locking Mechanism. This can be resolved with having a new Anti snap British Standard cylinder correctly fitted. If you have a wooden door the levers inside the lock may be frayed or a part may have become dislodged internally and again Id advise to either replace the lock or ask a professional Salford Locksmith to diagnose the issue.
The handle is loose and the door wont open Or Lock on My UPVC Door? I get a call from a lot of customers in Salford looking for a Locksmith when their UPVC Doors wont open or close. Typically this follows a door which has been difficult to lock or open for some time and the customer has been having to force it. Inside the Multi Point Locking Mechanism is a gearbox which come in all shapes and sizes but basically it controls the operation of the door. This usually becomes damaged causing the mechanism to jam, or become unresponsive. The solution is to replace the parts however for a a job like this Id always recommend using a trusted Professional Salford Locksmith.
My door is Hard to Lock can a Salford Locksmith help? This is another typical problem with UPVC doors especially in the summer time as the plastic around the door and frame can sometimes expand causing the door to become out of alignment. This results in tenants forcing the handle up or down to lock and unlock the door which in turn can cause the gearbox in the multi point locking mechanism to become broken. A simple fix is to have the door realigne

Lock Identification Salford
Lockforce Locksmiths in Salford will usually be able to identify what type of Lock you have with some simple questions over the phone however we have made a short list of some of the most common locks we see on a daily basis. The list below will hopefully help our Salford customers with identifying what type of lock has broken, needs to be installed or possibly replaced.
Euro Cylinders In Salford
Working as a Locksmith in Salford I would say that Euro Cylinders are the most common door lock I see on my daily jobs, or when traveling around Salford. Euro Cylinders are fitted to most UPVC doors, Composite Doors, Sliding Patio and some wooden doors which are usually Identified with a Thumb turn cylinders (internally). One of their most common features is that you will usually have to lift the handle up which engages the multi point locking mechanism and after the handle has been lifted the key can be turned to Lock the door. Euro Cylinders also come in different levels of security for example Standard cylinder, Anti-snap Cylinders, 1- and 3-Star British Standard (kite marked) cylinders. Lockforce Locksmiths Salford always advise to have Anti-Snap cylinders fitted as standard and as a minimum-security standard.
Mortise Locks In Salford
Mortise/Mortice Locks are found typically in wooden and occasionally metal doors. They consist of a single bolt that extends from the middle of the door into the door frame. Unlike the Euro Cylinder the lock itself is not visible as it is fitted into the door and only the keyhole can be seen. Mortise Deadlocks and Sash locks are typically used on wooden doors and usually come in conjunction with a Night latch which are commonly referred to as Yale Locks. Mortise Locks usually come as 2, 3 and 5 Lever and 5 Lever British Standard being the most secure. What level of security will depend on where the door is fitted, internally or externally. External doors should always be 5 Lever British Standard to meet with insurance regulations (BS3621/2007) and Internal doors are generally 2 or 3 Lever. If you're unsure what type of Mortise Sash lock or Deadbolt you have or need help identifying it just give Lockforce Locksmiths Salford a ring.
Night Latch - Yale Lock In Salford
Another common Lock I see around Salford, especially on older doors is the Night latch which comes in two parts. This lock I commonly here Salford residents refer to it as a Yale Lock howver that is a brand and not the actual locks name. On the outside is the Rim cylinder which is usually a round shaped lock where the key is inserted. On the inside is the casing which will have a handle to pull down or push up to retract the latch.
Night latches themselves come in different versions which include.
- * Auto Deadlocking Night Latch
- * Double Locking Night Latch
- * standard Night latch (none-deadlocking)
- * Deadlocking Night latch
As an Emergency Salford Locksmith, we get many calls from Salford residents who accidentally lock themselves outside with this type of lock. The typical scenario is a customer will either go outside and the wind will close the door, or they will go to work closing the door behind them and leaving the key inside. (Below is a High Security British Standard Night Latch fitted to a Home near Salford University, M5, by Lockforce Locksmiths Salford)

Frequestley Asked Questions And Answers (Lockforce Locksmith Salford - FAQs)
Question 5: Why Does My Lock in the wooden door struggle to unlock and I have to wiggle it? Seedley, M6, Salford - 2nd December 2022
On most wooden doors they usually have Mortise Sash locks and are usually accompanied by Night latches at the top (typically known as Yale locks). If you're turning the key inside your mortise lock and it's difficult to unlock and you need to lift and jiggle the key, this is usually a sign of either worn levers inside the lock or your key isn't cut correctly if it's a copy. If it is the original and you have not had issues in the past or everyone in the household is having issues with the lock, you need to get a new mortise lock fitted as soon as possible as eventually the mortise will fail and this usually happens once locked. As a local and trusted Salford Locksmith, I'd be happy to provide a free assessment of your current locks and home so please feel free contacting Lockforce Locksmiths Salford anytime.
Question 4: Do Lockforce Locksmiths Salford have experience with the NHS and Vulnerable Adults? Seedley, M6, Salford - 2nd March 2023
I previously worked for the NHS for 9 years in the mental health team working with vulnerable adults who suffered from a variety of mental health conditions such as Schizophrenia, severe depression, Bi polar and personality disorders. As I have this experience I'm aware of the needs for vulnerable adults which helps me with my approach as a local Salford Locksmith.

The short Answer is No, Lockforce Locksmiths Salford never charge call fee for attending arranged appointments or home or commercial visits. The only time we may charge call out fees are out of hours and warrant work. We will always advise people of this upfront!

Question 2: The key wont come out when the doors Locked? Deans Gate M2, Manchester - 18th August 2022
This is a common issue Lockforce Locksmiths Salford receive and is usually due to a twisted cam which can sometimes happen due to a faulty cylinder but mostly is due to the key being forced into the lock and turned when the other side of the lock has keys already inside. Unfortunately, this isn't a fixable problem and the solution is to replace the lock.
Question 1: What's wrong with the Door, the door won't open and the handle is floppy? Blackley M9, Manchester - 15th August 2022
This usually happens when temperatures turn to freezing and the mettle in the gearboxes becomes brittle but more often is when the door is out of alignment and the door handle is meeting resistance when it's pushed up or down to lock the multi point locking mechanism. The hooks may be hitting the keeps in the frame at the wrong angle creating pressure which causes the gearbox to fail and crack. If this happens you either will be unable to open the door or unable to lock it depending on when it broke. Another way of avoiding this issue is to have a locksmith realign the door before it breaks.

New Home in Broughton, Salford, M7 - 20/05/2022
Lockforce Locksmiths Salford were asked to a home in Broughton Salford as the new owners were keen to change the locks and make a fresh start in their new home.

Access around the back was also easy as there was no fence and on entering the rear of the property there was another UPVC door which again had overly long locks.

The Locks were ordered and the following day were fitted to the UPVC French doors at the back and the Composite door at the front door. This Salford home is probably one of the safest homes against Burglary and lock snapping on the street from what I observed looking at the other homes on the small Cul de sac. Lockforce Locksmiths Salford always advise customers to make their homes as safe as possible as this puts thieves and would be intruders off and they will often pick an easier home to Burgle unfortunately.
