Often when we change locks on a house or business in Brisbane it is so the occupants can be sure that other people with keys to their doors can not open the locks. This is by far the better type of lock changing job we do. Getting locks changed to avoid future problems is smart and should be done when ever you move to a new house, shop or office or when ever you dont want someone to come back into your home or get through your doors.

As we are a twenty four hour locksmith, we get jobs all hours of the day and night. The night time jobs are almost always emergency locksmith jobs where people are in some type of predicament and they need help from a locksmith in Brisbane. These types of jobs often are because their keys have been stolen and there is an urgent need to secure the home or business as it is more then likely the thief will return.

Lock cylinder showing coloured pins brisbane locksmithChanging the locks is either done in two ways. Either the lock or lock cylinders will be replaced or the lock pins will be changed to a new key combination. There are reasons for doing either type of lock changing. If a lock is damaged or broken then replacing the lock or cylinder is a must. Sometimes it is even less expensive to replace the cylinder then to repin or rekey the lock. If time is of the essence, some locks are better to be replaced as they can be time consuming to disassemble.

The advantages of just replacing the pins in locks are that the lock does not have to be replaced. Some locks are no longer made and impossible to replace. If the lock is not a standard fitting then the holes in the door would need to be repaired. Some locks are also very expensive. Replacing an entire lock is often just no cost effective. Even though some locks can be replaced with cheaper versions, the cheaper locks are never as good a quality as the more expensive higher quality locks. Going cheap on security on a home or business can lead to some very bad outcomes.

Our locksmiths in Brisbane always consider the most cost effective way to change your locks. If changing the locks is too time consuming or not a viable option, then new lock cylinders can be the better option.

Security Screen Doors For A Safe Living

There are many houses where almost everybody goes to work. They leave the house in the morning and return to the house by night. As crime rates tend to be rising across Brisbane there is a concern of house theft when nobody is home. Many precious, confidential and costly things are kept in the house. Some things may be of great importance and a loss of such thing gives a sentimental shiver to the house owners. This is the reason why the people are interested to secure their house in all possible ways. Security screen doors installation is also one of such security given to the house. It is better to pay a little for this installation rather than allowing the burglars and intruders into the house.
The security screen door is a metal frame. The size of this security door is same as the main door. It clips to the main door and gives more security. When someone is in front of the door, the owner can just open his main door and see through the security door. If he does not want them to be let in then he can just close the main door. But if there is no security door then there are chances of the intruder rushing into the house. This can be installed in a few hours. There are many companies which are undertaking the installation process. Many people prefer this door to be installed in the front and back. If installed on both the sides then the house is secured from both the sides.

Many people may feel that the look of the house is completely spoilt by installing the security door. There are many types of doors which make the house look glamorous even after installation. These security doors allow the house people to enjoy fresh air and also feel secured behind the door. This door is exposed to the harsh weather and thus it has to be robust. The paint or powder coating on the door should be able to withstand the weather changes. A steel mounted frame door is a secured one and many people prefer this. A metal door will prove to be more secure and robust.
A reputed company will give the ordered door in a fixed time. The warranty period has to be given by the company so that the house owner can have protection for his house with peace off mind. The measurements should be perfect and the door should fit exactly. If the measurements are not proper then it does not serve the purpose. The company should easily install the door and it should last for years. There should be an uninterrupted airflow and good light should be allowed into the house. Intruding small animals should be kept away from the house.

Don’t pay more

Don’t pay more

Would you expect to call a tradesman locksmith after hours or on the weekend and be charged more?

Cheap locksmith 24 hours

24 Hour Locksmith

We find our customers often remark at how we can be a cheap locksmith on after hours service. The truth is we are not a cheap locksmith! We just charge the same price for after hours work as we charge for in hours work. We never set out to be cheap.

Our locksmith service is set up a little different to other locksmiths in Brisbane. As we are a 24 hour locksmith, our rates don’t go up! We dont have to send a tradesman out on penalty rates because our standard hours of operation are 24 hours. It’s not brain surgery to work out why you would be charged more by other locksmiths. They work hard all day, then they are expected to do a double shift when you call them after hours. To compensate they have to charge you the customer a higher rate.

Our locksmiths only work a standard shift. To them an after hours callout or weekend callout is a part of their weekly work roster. We don’t see our customers as targets that must be charged more for an after hours service.

So if you are wondering why our prices are lower then other locksmiths its not because we are a cheap locksmith. Our prices just don’t increase when you have an emergency.

Garage door security

Garage door lock. Old type of roller door

Garage doors are often an overlooked part of the home security.

If the garage is not attached to the main house then it might not be thought of as a safety issue. Maybe the garage door lock should be more attention paid to it as the value of goods kept in the average garage can be quite high! If it is worth putting a lock on the door then it is probably worth making sure a burglar can not easily break into the garage.

Lockwood 001 deadlock

Lockwood Deadlatch

As a Brisbane locksmith we are often called to secure garage doors after a break and enter. Often the garage door is fitted with an inadequate lock which does not keep even then most novice thief from easily entering. An older garage in Brisbane often is fitted with a latch type lock which can be defeated with tools as simple as a credit card. One way of changing the locks and upgrading a door like this might be to fit a Lockwood 001 Deadlatch or a Deadbolt which will stop an easy door opening attempt. The type of door and door frame can dictate the best type of lock to be fitted in a specific situation. A garage such as a Titan Shed made from colourbond steel might need a specific lock type to suit a steel plate door such as a Lockwood 355 Deadlock.

The main door on a garage or shed should also be a concern. A lock that can be opened with a screwdriver or random key is not very secure. This is the type of lock people say only keep the honest people out. A true security lock with a brass cylinder is a much more secure lock and will be able to withstand a forced attack that most standard garage door locks will not. The keys for a number of standard locks are very insecure. Often times a Unit block of garages will be able to be opened with keys from other units. This is a good indication that the lock is very insecure and should be replaced.

There are a range of garage door locks available that take a more secure cylinder and have a much more solid lock design. Fitting a better lock to the door is an easy way to greatly upgrade garage security. A qualified locksmith can show if there are vulnerabilities in your garage or shed security. Leaving a garage insecure is really just leaving the security to chance. Personally I have found chance does not favor many people. Being prepared is always a better way to deal with your locks and security.

Changing locks with a Brisbane locksmith.

Fire Door Lock change locks

Fire Rated Door Lock

When changing the locks on a house or apartment a locksmith usually doesn’t change the entire lock. Only the combination of the lock has to be changed. The lock cylinder is pulled apart and given a new lock combination by a skilled locksmith. Changing the combination of the lock cylinder is generally much cheaper then replacing the entire locks on the doors. Even when new locks are supplied, more often then not they still need to be changed to suit a specific key.

Usually when changing locks it is convenient to have all the locks in a home on the one key. A Brisbane locksmith can change the locks and keys so they all match to the same key combination. A house with quite a few locks can be a nightmare if all the locks are on different keys. This makes finding the correct key for the lock very difficult and requires a large bunch of keys to be carried. When a locksmith changes the locks to the one key he makes the locks no less secure. All the parts inside the lock are still securely locking the cylinder. The lock just has the same combination as other locks in the house.

Even locks of different brands can be placed on the same key. Our Brisbane locksmiths know which locks can be placed on the same key. Sometimes a new lock cylinder will be required in order to have the locks all keyed the same. We carry an extensive range of new lock cylinders for this purpose and can easily swap a cylinder to make all the locks match on the one key. A complete lock may in some cases be needed to match all the locks to the one key. Our locksmiths also carry locks for this purpose. If a non stocked lock is needed, we can order and replace your locks fast.

Locksmith Entrance Door Lock

When changing locks a new set of keys is required. Our locksmiths can cut keys on site for your locks. We can also cut keys to code when needed for specific keying systems. Code keys are more accurate as they are cut to the manufacturers specifications. If you have a worn key or a key that is sticky or clicky, ask our Brisbane locksmith if you need a key cut to code.
