Just completed a job after the tenant called a national company . The Customer left keys inside and shut the door. This job would have been easy for a trained Locksmith. This company did not know what they was doing and completely destroyed the lock. Also did not have a new replacement lock and left the customer with an open door I was able to obtain a new lock. Left the customer with a working lock.
Your door is the gateway to your home.
As such, you want it to be as solid and protective as can be. Which means it being strong enough to withstand even the most determined burglar.
Whether you live in a flat or a house, your front door will always tell a thief the levels of security surrounding your home. If it looks really secure and burglar-resistant, then they’ll think twice about trying to gain entry.
A locksmith belonging to the Master Locksmiths Association will check to see if your door is secure and made of solid timber or a robust composite. The locksmith can also reinforce the frame and check if the locks and hinges are British Standard approved.

Fire Safety Advice for Landlords
FIRE SAFETY ADVICE FOR LANDLORDS, MANAGING AGENTS, PRIVATE DWELLINGS, BLOCKS OF FLATS AND OWNERS OF HOUSES IN MULTIPLE OCCUPATION AND SOCIAL HOUSING.
Just like employers, landlords have certain legal obligations when it comes to fire safety and protection of their properties and the safety of people who reside in their premises. However, it is not as simple as ensuring there is a couple of fire extinguishers to hand – fire safety largely depends on the potential risks and the different types of buildings can cause confusion.
For example, a building that is used for a single tenancy will differ to one which is shared across commercial and residential lettings. Legislation requires that landlords carry out fire risk assessments in all areas of their properties. This process will identify any fire hazards and who is at risk and decide if anything needs to be done to remove or reduce that risk.
The advice given in this section is intended to guide and advise Landlords, managing agents and owners of the following types of properties on best practice as well as your legal responsibilities under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (2005), this is commonly known as the Fire Safety Order (FSO).
Emergency call out to an apartment on the 10th floor in Bermondsey SE1. After a customer had one of the national locksmith companies install a Yale Conexis L1 Smartlock entry system to their apartment door. The end result wasn’t good, they installed the locking system incorrectly leaving the customer locked-out of her flat for two days.
Thanks to Yale, their excellent customer service gave the customer Lockmaster1’s contact details.
Luckily enough, I was at the Master Locksmith Regional Meeting in Stratford-upon-Avon, where Yale was demonstrating the new Yale Conexis L1 Smart Lock entry system and was instructed how to install the Yale Conexis L1 Smart Lock entry system correctly.
The only problem encountered was needing remove the lock destructively to install the new Yale Conexis L1 Smart Lock entry system.
Had an emergency call out today by an old lady in her 90s. Arrived on site within 20 minutes .She showed me what was wrong with the door.
It was an old aluminium door with a Union 2 boat and latch system . It has been discontinued for quite a number of years. I spent 20 minutes working on the door. When I finished the door it was working near enough good as new. Told the lady it was all done .She checked it was working ,she was very happy . When I showed her the invoice she told me she will not be paying it as it is a council house.
I tried to explain to her that I do not work for the council. she told me when she rang the council up they told her to get a sub contractor to do the work . I wasn’t going to argue with her must put this one down to experience .One extra step towards the Pearly Gates.
Upgraded to new British standard BS3621 2007 night latch Thamesmead SE28
Lock upgrade in Plumstead, SE18.
I received a call from a customer who had moved into the property over two years ago and decided it was time to upgrade their security. I found there was no night latch, as the previous owner took it with them.
After replacing the night latch I checked the two British Standard Chubb 3G114 locks on the front door and installed Sash Stops to all the sash windows to bring them up to insurance guidelines.
