Recent Jobs

Kitchen lockout, Wallsend, NE28, 16th May 2022

A lady rang to see if I could rescue her cat which was trapped in the kitchen and the door couldn’t be opened. I arrived to find that the latch had failed on the door handle so had to gain entry to the door and free the cat. The lady was so grateful, but also very concerned that the other handles’ latches may go too, that she asked me to change a further 5 door latches around the house. Nice one!

Tape cassette holder lock seized, Wallsend, NE28, 6th May 2022

A chap rang who had a flat which paid a complete homage to the 60s/70s music, along with an old stack of tape cassettes which resided in an old shop rack; however, the key no longer worked and it needed looking at. An unusual job indeed, however I quickly managed to get the rack open for the delighted music lover and found that the key he was using was the wrong one! Never mind, problem solved and rack opened and the music blasted out once more!

Lockout in Wallsend, NE28, 19th April 2022

Two girlfriends called me to say that one of them had gone to put a letter into their box and unfortunately dropped their keys back into the house. I arrived quickly to help them out and managed to use my endoscope with a powerful magnet on the end to locate and pick-up the keys quickly. Very relieved ladies who had actually missed 7 Facebook messages each in the time it took to get them back to their phones, so were very pleased to get back to the long-missed social media!

Interior porch door not locking correctly, Wallsend, NE28, 13th April 2022

A chap rang me as I’d done some work for him previously for his business. His wife was having issues closing and opening his porch door and she couldn’t get the door to lock properly. I’d found once I’d arrived that there was an “inverted cam” on the lock, which means it was likely that someone had tried to unlock or lock the door while a key was still in the other side. Although it is possible to dismantle the lock and repair, the time taken makes this uneconomically viable to the customer, so I changed the barrel over quickly and provided the customer with the standard 5 keys to go with the new lock. A very happy customer and relieved wife who could now operate the door lock easily!

Pizza shop shutters can’t be opened, Wallsend, NE28, 5th April 2022

A pizza shop-owner rang frantically asking if I could help him lock up his pizza shop after the lunchtime opening. Of course I could help, and arrived just before the stated time. All three of his shutters had failed, which I thought very suspicious as they were “keyed alike” ie, they all opened up from the same key. I asked if there was a second key somewhere, which indeed there was and the owner’s brother was quick to arrive with another key. Voila, they all opened with the other key. As I thought the owner’s key had been damaged and failed to open all the shutters all of a sudden. I cut the owner 3 spare keys there and then and he seemed like he’d won the lottery with the work I had done for him!

Badly fitting door very difficult to lock, Willington Quay, NE28, 28th March 2022

A kebab shop in Willington Quay rang to see if I could do something with their ill-fitting door which had become very difficult to lock and unlock. I arrived to find the door had dropped significantly due to the amount of use it had and it was on a spring, so had done quite a bit of slamming! I quickly managed to sort out the hinges and loosened the springs on the load arm so the door wouldn’t slam also. One happy kebab shop owner and a free kebab for me! Mmmmmmmm, my favourite!!

Allotment gate locked closed, Wallsend, NE28, 21st March 2022

The manager of the local allotment in Wallsend rang to say none of his gardener tenants could get into the allotment as the gate lock had failed. I arrived quickly to assist.

So pleased were the allotment holders that I not only got paid but got a free bag of tomatoes to boot!!

She was a new mother and was keen to get the house sorted for her newborn, but couldn’t get any fresh air into her upstairs window.

Internal door latch failed and door locked shut, Wallsend NE28, 23rd February 2022

Garden shed requires securing with better locks, Wallsend, NE28, 13th December 2021

A nice gent who kept some impressive tooling in his shed wanted to have some improved security on his shed after realising how much equipment he had inside the building. After understanding that the shed had extremely strong walls and it was the door that was the weakness. I fitted an extremely strong door defender across the bottom of the door and a bar across the middle, secured by high security padlocks. No way anyone getting in there quickly or quietly!

Handles floppy and won’t open door, Willington Quay, NE28, 9th December 2021

A pleasant chap rang looking for a locksmith in Willington Quay as his mother’s front door lock wouldn’t lock fully on her uPVC door; she was very concerned that the door would remain open during the night. I told them that I’d have it sorted and that they would be safe for the night.

I freed the lock from the housing and swapped the lock for an upgraded snap-proof, insurance approved lock, leaving the mother and son in a happy place!

Lockout in Wallsend, NE28, 30th November 2021

A family had taken their dog out but their door had locked behind them, but when they tried to get back in their key wouldn’t work anymore!! I tried to open the door without force but found that it had seized, so asked if there were other ways to get into their house. Fortunately, they’d left their key in the door at the back of the garage into the kitchen, which made the job very easy for me to get in. Lesson learned, and the couple never left their keys in the door again!

My local kebab shop’s door was not closing properly so they asked me to have a look. I found that the mechanism had seized on the upvc door and the key was getting stuck in the lock intermittently.

Seized closed window, Wallsend, NE28, 3rd October 2021

I was called to a house in Wallsend whose owner had an upstairs window that had not opened for 3 years. I quickly managed to open the window but luckily, I had my window pads on the window, as the top hinge had corroded so badly that the window was ready to fall out of the frame upon opening.
