This type of door typically requires that you lift the handle before you can turn the key to lock it.
When we replace these locks, we only use anti snap euro cylinders.
If you are replacing your own lock, please check that they are anti-snap cylinders, we say to do this because a common type of break in through these types of doors in the is from a method called lock snapping, with anti snap locks you don’t have to worry about this happening to you!
If you have a pair of patio doors we can make both locks work on the same key for ease of use.
Or make all the euro cylinders – front door, back door etc all work from one key if this is easier for you.
We also supply British Standard euro cylinders which some insurance companies require you to have on external doors.
Mortise locks explained by Locks & Keys
Security is important. No one can understate that. Unfortunately, it does appear that sometimes people don’t take the matter seriously. There’s no reason anyone should feel they are priced out of protecting their home. It’s therefore disconcerting to note the number of properties we’ve attended in recent times which have been broken into because of a lack of adequate security. This is usually due to the presence of only a nightlatch (Yale type lock) on a wooden front door, instead of the necessary addition of a mortise lock. In fact, the presence of a mortise lock is now a minimum requirement of most home insurance providers and is something we will recommend (for informational value – not a ‘hard sell’ when completing any work.
Mortise locks tend to come in two main varieties. The first is that of the classic deadlock. This is comprised of a keyhole and a bolt. When the key is turned, the bolt either locks or unlocks into the frame of the door. The sash lock is similar but contains a latch and handles. This means that simply unlocking the bolt is not enough to unlock the door. The latch means that the handles must be turned in order to unlock the door. It may seem that the latch provides higher security, but often it is simply a case of which one is the most appropriate for your door.
Mortise locks are comprised of different levers on the inside of the mechanism. Put simply the more levers, the harder that the lock is to pick. Most home insurance providers require a British Standard 5-lever lock as a minimum requirement. This is also the minimum installation standard provided by us for an external door.
Key cutting and more
We cut most types of keys from the van. We carry over 400 different key blanks. We can cut a duplicate key and test it in the door lock to ensure it works every bit as well at the key you already have. The cost of duplicate keys are less than you’d pay in town and we only use steel key blanks for cylinder keys to ensure extra strength.
We can ‘key alike’ similar locks so one key works all, or even master suite the locks so there are different levels of key to work different locks.
These are some of the key blanks on the van
