I had an issue with the locking mechanism on my upvc door and after getting advise on local Facebook yesterday (Sun 21.04.24) I went with John Plews of Fortis Locksmiths. John turned up this morning (22.04.24). Turned up 0800 hrs and quickly diagnosed the issue with the gears. Located part and returned at 1415 hrs same day and carried out the repair. I cannot fault John or the reasonable price and can highly reccomend him.

After the most stressful day, getting a puncture and leaving our house key at the garage, John came through as soon as we rang and he was in no more than 20 minutes. He was friendly and was well prepared. Could not recommend or thank him enough!

A: Locksmiths are skilled tradesmen that are trained to work with different types of locks both to open and fit them. Locksmiths often use different tools and techniques to open, repair and fit locks to different types of doors and buildings.

A: In most cases it will take a locksmith up to ten minutes to open a door, however the time frame can vary dependent on the type of lock some can be opened in around 7 seconds whereas other may take up to 45 minutes.

A: A minimum of one lock will be required to have adequate security measures on your external door, however any security professional will tell you that two locks are better than one. You can have a standard BS3621 lock fitted and use a deadbolt to work alongside it, this will vastly improve your overall security measures and you could even find that your insurance provider will offer you a discount on your premiums.

A: Burglar look out for any properties that they can see has weak, old or damaged locks on windows or doors. If a burglar feels your lock can be either snapped or bypassed easily this will make your home an easy target in a burglar’s eyes. Pet and garage doors also provide easy access to your home for a burglar.

A: Yes, alarms are very effective at making burglars think twice before attempting a break-in, however, it is important that you have other security measures such as high security locks as using an alarm on its own will not prevent a burglar breaking into your property.

A: The time it takes to change a door lock can vary, it is much dependent on the existing lock and type of door that you have. Replacing the lock can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Locks that are being fitted to a door without an existing lock can take longer.

A: On average your local locksmith in York will charge around £70 per hour, some locksmiths may charge a slightly smaller fee for any subsequent hours, and the cost of the parts needed will usually be included in the price quoted over the phone.

A: There are a few things that you can add to a window to improve its overall security. Quality locks and restrictors work well, you can also install window cameras and alarms. Another good security measure is installing laminated glass, this allows only a one-way view so that the layout and position of valuables in your property can’t be viewed from the outside.

A: Although deadbolts are a quality lock and incredibly difficult to open when locked without the use of a key, any good locksmith will be able to gain entry to a deadbolt. This is because locksmiths have the skills, knowledge and correct tools to make this possible.

A: Yes, it is always advised by any security professional including the police, that whenever you move into a new property you have all of the external locks changed. This means that it is only you that has a copy of the key as you can never be sure of how many are still in circulation from previous owners.
