Can you gain entry without replacing the locks?

A skilled locksmith can open any type of lock using specialist tools. Some of the higher-security locks may require drilling to open, in which case your lock must be changed, but this is still less expensive than breaking a window.

Do I need any documents or proof of ownership to show I have the right to open the door to a property?

We work lawfully, so please ensure you have the correct papers to confirm your right to enter the premises in question. Before the job can begin, ownership must be confirmed. Typically, this is done by requesting and inspecting a valid photo ID, such as a driver’s licence, or by inspecting a bill that includes the name and address of the property. The service may be denied if you do not have any identification to prove that you are the owner or actively reside there.

What Is Lock Snapping?

uPVC Doors and Window Locks

The terms “cylinder snapping” and “lock snapping” may be familiar to you. Lock snapping, which takes ZERO skill on the part of the thief, is an extremely popular technique used by burglars to enter a building with a euro cylinder lock. Almost all domestic homes with UPVC doors have Euro lock cylinders that are prone to lock snapping; nevertheless, a sizable proportion of composite and aluminium doors also have them, and they are frequently employed in both commercial and residential settings.

Lock snapping is the process of opening a lock by first breaking the cylinder.
While you may believe that your door is secure because it has multiple locking points, it’s crucial to remember that each one is controlled by the cylinder, which is also its weakest link. If the cylinder is broken, all the locking points become inoperable. A criminal only needs 5–10 seconds to break the lock. There are numerous videos on YouTube that demonstrate how to snap a lock without any special equipment and with little to no knowledge. Lock snapping is a common method of burglary, thus it’s crucial to know what kind of locks are installed on your property and to replace them if necessary.

What Locks Should I Have To Comply With My Insurance Policy?

You would usually be asked what kind of locks you have installed on your outside doors and windows when applying for home insurance. If your house doesn’t have the proper locks installed, you risk paying a higher insurance price.
What are the requirements for door locks in terms of insurance? What kinds of door locks are most likely to be accepted by insurance companies?

The Five Lever Mortice Deadlock –

Despite what the name might imply, the five-lever mortice deadlock is a typical door lock style that you’ve probably seen before. If you’re unsure whether the door lock on your door is of this sort, look for a mortice (a type of hole) cut into the wall or door where the lock will be installed. Mortice locks are different from deadlocks in that they are built into the actual wall and can only be opened with a key. Just a keyhole and a bolt make up a deadlock. One of the greatest lock types for insurance purposes is the five-lever mortice deadlock since the more levers a mortice deadlock has, the safer it is.

Key-operated Multi-Point Locking System –

The key-operated multi-point locking system bolts the door into the frame and locks at many points with the turn of a key, providing a high level of security, offering an even better level of security than the five-lever mortice deadlock. Since they are frequently found on uPVC doors, chances are good that you already have a key-operated multi-point locking system installed if you have one. These locks often feature three locking points, which means that when you turn the key, they all lock at once.

Night Latches –

Most insurance companies prefer night latches to be used in addition to one of the other door lock types as an additional security measure when it comes to lock types. These locks are much less secure than a five-lever mortice deadlock or multi-point locking system since they are positioned on the front door rather than morticed into the wall.

Can you give me any basic home security tips?

We will start with some of the basic home security tips that we all know but maybe have become a little complacent with due to not happening to you so far. It may seem like common sense but when you have a busy family and work life these things can often get overlooked.

Making sure that you always lock all doors and windows when you leave the house, never leaving windows open, and making sure you do not have valuables in plain sight for burglars to be tempted are the core safety tips but we will go over many more to make sure house is the safest in the neighbourhood, these small things that we all know, but sometimes just slip our mind.

It is essential to keep your valuables secure and out of sight from potential thieves. There are so many techniques in which you can enhance your home safety without incurring expensive costs.

One of the best tips we can give you on keeping valuables out of sight is to ensure that in lockups, sheds, and other outbuildings you only keep things of low value. If you have an expensive toolkit it would be much better kept under the stairs and instead move some of the unused boxes stored there into the shed. Christmas decorations, old toys, clothes, and things that you rarely use are all perfect to be stored outside of the home.

Keep the things you treasure most in the building that is hardest to gain access to and if they are expensive items don’t show them off in pride of place in your home, under the stairs, in cupboards, and out of sight of the window is the best way to reduce the risk of home intrusion. Being a victim of burglary is very upsetting and we want to make sure that if a thief is peering through your windows they don’t see expensive items lying around.

Metropolitan Police Crime Prevention advice – Protecting your home from crime.

Metropolitan Police Crime Prevention Advice

Advice and measures to safeguard your home and prevent burglary from the Metropolitan Police

Your home’s security is only as good as its weakest point of entry. That is why it is critical to have as secure doors and windows as possible. Follow our recommendations to keep potential intruders out.

Whether you live in a flat or a house, the level of security surrounding your home is always obvious by your front door. If it appears to be extremely secure and burglar-resistant, they will reconsider attempting to gain entry.

A Master Locksmiths Association professional can examine your door to ensure it is secure. The locksmith can also strengthen the frame and ensure that the locks and hinges meet British Standards.

Door Security

  • Sliding patio doors are prone to forced entry, so make sure yours has an anti-lift system installed to prevent them from being pushed out of the frame.
  • Some uPVC doors have locks that protrude from the frame on the exterior (known as euro profile locks). If yours does, request that a locksmith replace the lock with a shorter one that cannot be snapped off.
  • If your door has a letterbox, a guard installed on the back of the door will prevent anyone from reaching in with a stick and a hook to fish for nearby objects such as a handbag or keys, which should never be stored near exterior doors. Consider cat and dog flaps as well.
  • Windows can be strengthened by introducing laminated panels or using special films.
  • Spy holes and security chains are recommended to identify visitors before opening the door.
  • Every time you leave your house, remember to use both locks and double-check that the mortice lock is locked.
  • A double-locking night latch provides further security and peace of mind.
  • Door bars, such as a London or Birmingham Bar, considerably reinforce the doorframe and give excellent protection against anyone attempting to force open or kick down a door.
  • A lock guard accomplishes exactly that; it protects the keyhole and locks from tampering and serves as a strong deterrent.

Additional guidance

When installing a new door, always use security-accredited goods that have been tested to British standards and are approved by the insurance sector. Ask your locksmith about the PAS 24 2022 standard.

If you are a building manager in charge of apartments within larger buildings (for example, apartment complexes), you should be aware of current fire safety rules before making any changes to the front doors.


Window Security

Burglars favour windows to doors because they offer easier access. Examine how your windows appear from the outside, removing potential entry points when possible.

Is there anything like walls, bins, or garden equipment that could be used to reach the windows? See our ideas below for windows that are within reach, such as those on the ground floor.

  • For the ground floor and accessible windows, laminated glass or security film is recommended.
  • Sash stops prevent others from opening the sash window far enough to crawl through.
  • Keyed locks are advised for windows that open outward rather than upward, as well as any ground floor or accessible windows. Remember that window locks are only effective if they are used, so double-check that you have locked them before leaving the house or going to bed.
  • Window opening restrictors allow you to ventilate your home while also preventing them from being picked and unlocked from the outside.

Additional guidance

Ladders have been used by burglars to gain access to upper windows that appear to be unsecured. This is done to bypass the lower floor’s intruder alarm sensors. These ladders are either found in the suspect’s garden or carried with him. Make sure that upper-floor windows have locks or sash stops. You should also increase the scope of any alarm sensors to upper rooms.

When replacing your windows, always choose a security-accredited product that has been tested to British standards and is insurance-approved. PAS 24 2022 is an excellent standard.

A Master Locksmiths Association member can recommend a suitable standard of window lock and provide advice on improving window security.
