We were called out to rectify a problem with this Ingersoll lock not always locking properly when the door shut. It was easy to see that this lock had a lot of use and was very worn.

We have quoted to replace it like for like (with another Ingersoll SC71 lock).

Just thought I’d put this on here to show how worn this lock is.

Ingersoll is a good quality lock usually fitted to commercial doors – very rarely seen fitted to a residential property. It is designed for a high level of use every day. We used to come across this type of cylinder lock on the outside of the mobile phone remote location stations for the masts in the countryside.
