Late night callout to this High security lock in Milford Haven, it may look like a Yale but this was a higher security lock that gave up a bit of a fight, wasnt too long and was in.

Tubular locks picked and keys made

Customer lost their keys for their safe holding their passport to go on holiday.

Lock picked, decoded and new keys made for the original lock on site! Panic over now they can relax and enjoy their holiday.

Door re-alignment

Customer today had issues with locking their door.

Quick inspection found that the fault was the hinges were loose and badly out of alignment.

Door now working like new.

Finding the fault early saved the gentleman a lot of money because if you leave it too late and you’re having trouble lifting the handle locking the door it will cause strain on the multipoint locking system and it will eventually fail completely.

If you’re having any trouble lifting the handles to lock or the door is rubbing on the frame give us a call to get it working as it should.
