Went in to my friends shop yesterday “Lockskeys Greenwich”, he showed me a lock that a customer brought in for a replacement, after calling one of the national locksmiths. Most of you will recognise this guy’s work, it’s happening so much in Greenwich that Danny is keeping a collection!

Got called out last night at 9:30pm
The lady on the other end of the phone told me she was locked out. She told me they had been waiting for a locksmith to turn up since 7 .30pm. I told her I would be 15 to 20 minutes. I arrived in less then 10 minutes.
As I turned up there were two old ladies in their late 70s. I asked them if they had proof that they lived at the premises. The first lady said to her friend ” Can you tell him I live here ?” I then said ” No I need to find out that you own the property ” so she said “No I don’t own the property, it’s my daughter’s, who lives in America “.
I said “I cannot let you in without proof that you’re supposed to be in the house.”
She then went on and said “Oh I understand what you mean”, then she showed me a bank statement and a bus pass with her name on it proving that she does live at the address. It only took me a few minutes to pick the lock. I asked her what time of arrival the locksmith that previously called gave her.
She told me she didn’t speak to a locksmith, but had just left a message on his answer machine.
I’m not saying which locksmith this was, but the shop was shut at that time of day.
Always speak to somebody if you’re locked out in an emergency.

Losing your laptop, jewellery, mobile phone in a burglary is just the start. Burglars don’t care about damaging your property. They leave a trail of carnage behind by emptying out drawer’s and cupboards and if the contents are not worth stealing they don’t care whether they damage them or not. Knowing someone has been inside your home can be just as traumatic as losing your property and there is the additional fear of the possibility of them returning.
I read an article where it stated that burglary is also more common than you may think. According to figures from UK Crime Stats there are over 450,000 burglaries a year – that’s nearly one EVERY MINUTE across the UK.
To defend your home install a security system burglars are put off by and as new ideas and home security systems evolve alarm systems are becoming smarter than ever,
Defenses such as Ring.com doorbell ,fake TV’s, and door / Smart home IP cameras which can be accessed by your smart phone are highly recommended and in addition why not get a free security check from your local Master Locksmith Association member.
Most properties are empty 80% of the time.
At Lockmaster1 we can supply almost any security solution which is needed for the home or business.
I had a call from a young girl saying she was locked out last night and called one of the National locksmith companies in Greenwich, yet this fake company isn’t even in Greenwich, they just pretend to be by purchasing local-looking telephone numbers.
They gave her a quote of £75 to open her door as the “snib” had dropped.
The Locksmith drilled the lock, despite there being a big cat flap just one meter away from the lock! He needed a new lock since the door opened outwards, yet he did not know how to install the new lock. So disgracefully, he left her with no lock on the door all night and charged her £300.
The job should have taken a mere ten minutes at most using the “Letterbox Tool” that was designed exactly for this case, costing no more than £75 for that time of day.
The lesson learned here? Always make sure the locksmith you are calling is truly in your area.
