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.
Here at Locks & Keys, we understand the importance of security. We also believe that everyone should be able to feel safe in their own home, and this is why we provide cost effective, high quality security solutions across the Gloucestershire area. If you have a wooden front door, it can sometimes be fitted with only a night latch, or Yale type lock, to protect it. This is inadequate for full security, as doesn’t provide complete protection from break-in or damage. Adding a mortise lock can help improve this and is often a necessary addition for most home insurance providers. We always recommend that your home has the very highest security, and a mortise lock helps you achieve this.
We can install mortise locks of two different varieties. There is the traditional deadlock, which is comprised of a bolt and a keyhole. These locks work by moving into the door frame itself to unlock and lock the door. An alternate type of mortise lock is the sash lock, which functions slightly differently. This uses handles as well as a latch, meaning that in order to actually unlock the door, you must turn the handles. Some believe that this form of mortise lock is more secure, but it is actually dependent on which is better for your door.
The main reason that these locks are so secure is due to the fact that they are comprised of many different levers within the lock itself. As there are multiple levers within a mortise lock, they are much more difficult to pick, and therefore are more likely to protect your home against intruders. As a requirement for many insurance providers, a British Standard 5 Lever lock should be fitted to your door. Here at Locks & Keys, we fit them as a standard with every installation for an external door, giving you and your family peace of mind.
Key cutting and more
Whether you’re based in Cheltenham or Stroud, or anywhere in the Gloucestershire area, don’t worry if you need a key cut in a hurry. With our dedicated mobile key cutting service, we’re able to cut most types of keys from the van. We carry over 400 different key blank profiles. 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.
