Lock replacement, Warrington Manchester

When did you last review your locking systems? Has your front door been tricky to open for a while? Do you have to have a certain knack to using the key to gain entry? Do other members of the family find it difficult to use their keys? Don`t wait until it becomes an emergency, contact us and arrange for us to visit at a time convenient to you.

There are a number of reasons why locks break, sheer wear and tear is one of the most common reasons. If the lock is old and has a high level of activity i.e. multiple owners of keys, multiple people using the door each day the locking mechanism will cease to function correctly rendering the lock redundant.


The cylinder is found in the centre of a lock where the key enters, on a Yale lock for instance. This may have become loose, so the core slides out of place when trying to retrieve the key, or it may have become stuck so the key does not rotate at all or does not return to its original position.

When the cylinder ceases to work, so does the lock which causes the potential problem of gaining entry.

Mortice deadlock

These types of lock can cease to work for a number of reasons including worn keys, broken mechanisms and warped or ill-fitting doors.

Of course keys can break in locks resulting in the inability to gain entry – this happens in the majority of cases as a result of the lock not functioning fully and the operator using increase force to gain entry.

We offer the full range of locksmith services which includes both prevention and cure when it comes to ensuring your locks are operating fully.

One of our emergency locksmiths was called out to a property in Warrington yesterday to change a euro turn cylinder in the front door. The old one had broken when the home owner tried to gain access.

For further advice regarding all home security, we will be happy to assist.
