Do you need a locksmith or do you just want to know what a locksmith is or does? So, I will try to explain this in two parts based. In part one we will discuss ‘Do you need a locksmith’ and in part two we will explain what a locksmith is and or does.

Locksmith – If you need a Locksmith and live in Lincolnshire then I am the man for you, I live with my mobile (07789997214) by my side and I am ready to go. So, whether it is an emergency or a slow burner I am very confident I will be able to assist. So, if you are locked out of your property, you can not lock your door or even worse you are inside the property and can not open the door, then please do not hesitate to get in contact. However, like with any trades person that you invite to your property, you need to be confident that they are trustworthy and reliable. I am Criminal Records Bureau checked and cleared (now DBS) but I am also Defence vetted to Top Secret. This is me pictured below.

What does a locksmith do?

Work that is associated with locksmithing ranges from: Gaining entry into properties when people are lock out, repairing locks either on wooden or UPVc doors, repair safe locks, install safes, vehicle locksmithing either installing additional locks are repairing factory fitted locks and key cutting for house, vehicle and safe locks. Some Locksmiths consider themselves Security Consultants as they install security alarms, CCTV and access control.

So, if you have a UPVc door and you are locked out, then most locksmiths will use a number of non-destructive methods to gain entry. As pictured below.

However, although I cut keys for locks that I install, but because my van isn’t big enough to carry all available blank keys there are very few locksmiths that can cut old safe keys, especially Milner’s. See picture below.

If you need a Milner’s safe key cutting then I can whole heartedly recommend Dean Scott, who is the shop manager at Blakes Security Systems on the Medway City Estate in Kent.
