Locked out in Brisbane

It has been a busy Friday night in Brisbane. Tonight we have performed lockouts in Chermside, Upper Mount Gravatt, St Lucia and Kangaroo Point.  We were able to unlock all the doors tonight without any problems.  The number of people locked out side of their homes increases quite a bit this time of year as the weather heats up and it gets closer to Christmas.

Locked out in Brisbane. Need a locksmith to unlock a doorUnlocking the door at Upper Mount Gravatt tonight was an interesting job. We were not the first locksmith to attend the property. The first locksmith called could not unlock the door. The tried for over an hour and could not pick the lock. The tenant of the property informed us they used a pick gun to try to open the door. It was quickly evident that the lock they were trying to pick the pick gun would never have opened. It was a new style Lockwood 001 deadlatch. These locks use security pins that can not be picked with a pick gun or bumped with a bump key. We use a unique opening techinique to unlock a locked door with these Lockwood deadlocks. The customer was very happy to be back inside their apartment within a few minutes of our arrival.

It is normal that we can unlock a locked door within a few minutes. There are situations where it becomes very difficult to open a locked door. High security locks a challenge, which often can still be opened. The biggest challenges when opening locked doors are caused by lock malfunctions, broken locks and very weird situations. A broken lock can make it impossible to open a door, even when a key is available. A broken lock can often be unlocked and the door opened quite fast, although some situations require patience in figuring out exactly what is wrong with the lock. A broken latch inside a door is also a situation that requires skill to open the door.

In Brisbane there is an ever increasing number of high security locks. High security locks stop a lot of burglars from breaking into homes and businesses. They do however hinder a locksmith from quickly unlocking a door. Making a locksmiths job harder is not a bad thing! The harder it is for a locksmith, the harder it also is for criminals. Opening all types of doors with all types of locks is just part of a locksmiths job. Our locksmiths have a range of door opening techniques for many situations.

Providing a 24 hour locksmith service in Brisbane, sometimes it is easy to forget just how essential the service is and how it helps so many people in their daily lives. Helping students to unlock their door is a fairly common type of job for us here at 24 Hour Locksmiths. In Brisbane we have a lot of international students who attend universities who from time to time find themselves in trouble with keys and locks. Often students from overseas countries are surprised that there is a 24 hour locksmith available to help them. Students we let back into their rooms and apartments are always grateful and always a pleasure to help.

Many locks on the doors at Kangaroo Point are a high security profile and contain lock pins that make the locks extremely difficult to open. Luckily this is our job, and bypassing and picking locked doors usually is not a difficult problem. Of course they are not all easy doors to pick the locks on. Some doors take a little longer to open then others but our locksmiths are trained to open even the trickiest locked doors.

This particular locked door uses a Lockwood mortice lock and it has a Registered Key system installed. The keys for this door can only be cut by the locksmith who installed the system. The lock cylinder used a paracentric key way which makes it very difficult to copy a key for the lock and also makes it very hard to insert a lock pick tool into the lock to open the door. Even though the lock was a difficult one to open, it didnt take our locksmith very long to have the door open and the student safe back in his apartment.

Other locksmiths in Brisbane who do emergency locksmith work at Kangaroo Point would understand that it is a suburb of Brisbane that is rather special in many ways. One way that Kangaroo Point is special is that it has a lot of upmarket units. By upmarket, I mean they are generally a bit more luxurious and many are in high rise buildings. Kangaroo Point might be a great place to live because it is close to the city, but it is also easy to lock the keys inside the apartment.

It is easier to lock your keys inside your apartment at Kangaroo Point because most doors are fire doors. The fire doors need a door closer to make sure the door closes but the door closer also makes it easier for the door to close and for people to lock themselves outside of the apartment.

Because of the fire door regulations at Kangaroo Point most apartment doors have the same type of deadlock or deadlatch installed on the door. The extra lock is usually always a Lockwood 001 deadlatch. The Lockwood 001 deadlock has for quite some time now come out of the packet with a higher security lock cylinder which Lockwood Australia calls “Kinetic Defence” The Lockwood 001 Deadlatch with Kinetic Defence cylinder is very different to “pick” open, then the older Lockwood locks. It requires a very different lock picking technique and old lock picking skills need to be upgraded. The Lockwood Kinetic Defence cylinders are also very hard to open with a bump key.

Lockwood Australia did a great job in making their locks harder to open. Well, lets face it, it is a lock manufacturers job to make their locks hard to open by any other means except the key.

The problem with locking yourself out of a Lockwood 001 deadlatch at Kangaroo point is that many locksmiths in Brisbane still do not know how to open these locks without forcing or drilling the lock open. You cant blame the locksmith, these locks are hard to pick open if you haven’t put the time into learning the skills required to open them. At 24 Hour Locksmith Brisbane one of the biggest part of our job is to know how to open locked doors. Our locksmiths are trained and taught how to open Lockwood Kinetic Defence locks which are on many doors at Kangaroo Point.

There is a buzz you get each time you open a door for a customer. Weather the lock is picked open or opened by other means, it is always our aim to open locks without any damage to the door or the lock. Every time a New Lockwood 001 Kinetic Defence deadlock is opened our locksmith Kangaroo Point gives us great satisfaction to know the hard work and training given to our locksmiths is paying off and our customers are benefiting in what seems to them to be a fast and easy door opening.
