Getting locked out is often times stressful.  We always aim to help you gain entry as quickly as possible.  Below you will find some information on the common locks and how they are defeated:

  • Rim Cylinder locks (Yale) – first attempt is always picking or bypassing the lock.  Failure to do that would require drilling out the rim cylinder. Replacing it is not too expensive but this is last resort.
  • Mortice locks – can be sometimes a bit time consuming to open so opening, thus depends on the standard and make of the mortice lock you have fitted.  When I say time consuming I mean it shouldn’t  take any longer than 15 minutes.  We again will try picking or bypassing the lock if this is not possible again drilling it out and replacing is inexpensive and quicker if you can’t standing being out of your home any moment longer.
