Are you locked out
If You’re Locked Out of the House in Glasgow, Don’t Panic
As soon as the lock was invented, the job of locksmith was too. There’s no need to be embarrassed if you find yourself locked out of the house in Glasgow.
If it’s never happened to you before, then you probably know at least one person that’s fallen victim. After all, we’re a famously absent-minded bunch. Some mistakes can have more unfortunate consequences than others. Many people who’ve heard the door slam shut on their keys can testify to that. Or perhaps you’ve had the lock of a cabinet snap while attempting to open it?
These are just two examples of common reasons a locksmith is called out. We really have seen it all before. Read on to discover more situations where it’s handy to know about local locksmiths.
The big one: an emergency call after getting locked out.
It’s something that’s easy to imagine: in a rush to leave your home, you gather all of your things. You step outside of the door and let it close behind you – and realise the one thing you forgot to pick up was your keys.
So now you’re locked out of the house. Luckily, this is our speciality. It’s right there in the name. Lockout Scotland offers a one-hour emergency call-out service: ensuring that as unpleasant as getting locked out is, you’ll be back in your home as soon as possible.
Need to have your locks changed?
There’s a few reasons that you might need to think about changing locks.
Moving to a new home is an exciting occasion, although there’s a lot to think about as well. It’s not uncommon to have the locks changed on a new house. Tracking the list of previous owners/contractors/etc. who might have had keys at some point can be difficult.
As a landlord, you might want to have the locks changed for similar reasons. It isn’t always possible to get the keys back from old tenants. For the new tenants moving in and for your own peace of mind, you may want replacement door locks. It can even be something as simple as losing the keys to a lock – whatever the cause, Lockout Scotland can change your locks. The locks come with two keys as standard.
Changing locks can be a hassle and if the lock’s the only problem then it might be worth considering a repair. Locks aren’t immune to damage and they can become jammed; stop locking or stop opening. In that case, we can come along and see if the lock’s repairable.
This saves you the hassle of having the locks changed – that involves more work and means you have to get new keys. We can carry out repairs on a variety of locks – including door lock repair. These include mortice locks, sash locks and euro cylinders locks. Whether it’s a broken lock on a wooden door, a patio door or not even attached to a door, we make every effort to repair your lock.
