Locked out in Tonbridge, TN12 - December 2022
Lockforce Locksmith Tonbridge were called out after a couple found themselves locked out of their home. We attended within the hour and began our inspection. On inspection, the front door had two locks; the one, a Nightlatch unit, which functioning fine and the second, a mortice lock, which was causing the problem. The bolt was not retracting, and the key would not turn. Attempts were made to gain entry via two other doors, but these both had keys in the cylinder on the inside and short of destroying one unit to gain entry, these were not an option and attention was again turned to the problem lock. Eventually, using a combination of tools, the Mortice unit was unlocked and entry was gained, without the need to damage anything. It was discovered that the door is slightly distorted, leading to the lock-bolt trapping in the keep. The lock unit had become problematic and would need replacing. It would also be necessary to take away some of the material of the keep, to allow the bolt to work freely. We returned to the property and fitted a replacement British Standard Roller-Bolt Sashlock was obtained and fitted.

Sticky night latch in Tonbridge, TN12 - October 2022
Lockforce Locksmith Tonbridge took a call from a client who reported issues of their Nightlatch sticking. The Nightlatch unit was scraping against the side of the door frame as it had been fitted very closely and with the current damp weather, the frame or the door had moved slightly, causing the issue on two doors. It was decided to polish some of the woodwork on both doorways, to ease the passage of the Nightlatch units, plus, to service both units. This was carried out successfully and both doors and their lock units were restored to proper function in that regard. It was noted on the front door, that the base of the door is degrading because of the damp. A crack is evident, which allows water ingress to cause the problem. The crack in the door needs to be caulked. However, this will only be effective once the door dries out and the filler is able to adhere properly to the wood. Client had also requested that the front door handle set be changed, as the existing one is sagging.This has been ordered.

Entry gain for lady locked in bathroom in Tonbridge, TN9 - 22/10/21
Lockforce Locksmith Tonbridge received an urgent call-out to attend a ‘Lock-In’ situation. The client’s wife was stuck in the bathroom. A component on the door handle had broken and the door sash-bolt would not retract. The client had already attempted to work on the door handle etc, without success. We were able to establish that the spindle holder in the latch had fractured and was blocking the path of the sash-bolt. We were able to remove the offending piece and retract the bolt manually, freeing the lady. Because the sash-bolt operated with spring tension, the problem would have immediately reoccurred and therefore we removed the mechanism to avoid this happening. The client, as a handy-person indicated that he would source a new latch unit and fit it himself.
