Domestic Locksmiths : Damaged & Faulty Locks
As a result of age and general wear and tear, doors and windows may not open, close or lock. As well as being an irritation this can pose a major security problem. In the majority of cases Yeovil Locksmiths' engineers are able to repair the lock and if this is not possible then they can replace it.
We are able to repair or replace all types of window and door locks, including cylinder rim locks (Yale locks), mortice locks, sash window locks, patio door locks and uPVC door locks.
uPVC Door Locks
Modern uPVC door locks are extremely robust, but as with any other device with a working mechanism problems can occur; like wooden doors they can contract, expand or drop and the locking mechanism can fail. Yeovil Locksmiths can solve all of these problems and if necessary replace the multi-locking point system.
Cylinder Rim Locks (Yale Locks)
If your cylinder rim lock (Yale locks) is beyond repair then it is usually possible to replace just the barrel, this is cheaper than replacing the whole lock.
Home Insurance Requirements For Locks - are you covered?
Home insurance companies require residential locks and security to be of a certain standard. If yours do not meet these standards then they may not be obliged to settle your claims. This important fact is often overlooked when reading the standard terms and conditions. As a result it may be more sensible to talk to us about upgrading an old faulty lock to one that meets the latest insurance company guidelines.
All of our locks are British Standard BS3621 approved.
