Types of Locks We Repair

One of the most common phone calls we get is to repair broken door locks throughout South Yorkshire – often these locks have just broken due to wear and tear over the years rather than any specific attempt to break in – although of course there can be lots of different reasons.

If you don’t see your type of door lock listed below – it doesn’t mean that we can’t repair it! This list is designed to be just a summary of a few of the different types of door locks that we can repair – if you have any questions, please do give our Barnsley based team a call and we’ll be happy to advise.

uPVC Door Lock Repair

uPVC Door Lock Repair

uPVC door locks / mechanisms can often break in the centre gearbox - usually the spindle (that is operated by your door handle) crumbles / breaks into pieces as this is where the majority of the pressure is placed when you lift your uPVC door handle to lock the door. Sometimes this can be caused by a door coming out of line which is common when we experience really hot or really cold weather - but other times, it can just be the age of the mechanism.

uPVC door lock replacement is much cheaper than replacing the full door and usually parts are readily available. In addition to repairing the uPVC door lock, we often fit anti snap high security insurance approved replacement cylinder locks throughout Barnsley to improve your security.

Composite Door Lock Repair

Composite Door Lock Repair

Composite door locks are very similar to uPVC door locks, but are made from a variety of materials, most commonly including uPVC, foam, wood, and GRP (glass reinforced plastic) to give other benefits that uPVC doors don't have. They do however share the same types of mechanisms, so all of the above applies, and our expert Barnsley Locksmiths can replace the locks on these types of doors when they're broken at a reasonable cost.

Wooden Door Lock / Mortice Lock Repair

Whilst less common nowadays, our Barnsley locksmith services are often used to fix and replace broken wooden door locks often known as mortice locks. These are what many people refer to as "the old style" door locks - and despite what many think, are often still very secure! There are different types of mortice locks (3 lever and 5 lever, 2.5" and 3" to name a few different variations), but our locksmiths carry a full stock of all wooden door locks so we can generally replace them in the same visit.

If you're locked out of your wooden door lock our emergency locksmith services can help!

Yale Nightlatch Repairs

Yale Nightlatches are the type of locks that automatically lock when you close the door - usually found on wooden doors. Although the most common type of call we get as locksmiths Barnsley for these locks is when someone has accidentally shut the door behind them and locked themselves out, they do also develop faults over time and require repair or replacement. Our emergency locksmith service can help if you've been locked out, and remember - we don't charge a call out fee!

Patio Door Lock Repair

Patio Door Lock Repair

Patio doors have become more and more common - despite the inclement weather we often experience in South Yorkshire! Bi-fold doors, french doors, stable doors, or even just double standard doors - we see all sorts of variations of patio door locks that have broken for various reasons. Patio doors are more likely to come out of line than standard doors because of the fact they tend to "lock in" to the slave door. Again, our locksmiths carry a full range of replacement patio door locks so we can often get you back up and running, making the door repair the very same visit.

Garage Door Lock Repair

Garage Door Lock Repair

Garage door locks (like uPVC door locks) can vary by manufacturer - Cardale, Hormann, Garador to name just a few that are common in Barnsley. Whilst many up and over style garage doors in Barnsley have T-bar style handles, there are lots of different variations of garage door locks when it comes to repair - sometimes we'll ask you to describe the lock over the phone, or even send us a photo so we can see if it's a garage door lock we carry on our vans.

Conservatory Door Lock Repair

Conservatory Door Lock Repair

Very similar to Patio Door Locks and uPVC Door Locks - conservatory door locks can take a lot of different forms, but again, all use the same types of uPVC door and Composite door mechanisms. They tend to suffer from the same kind of faults, but can also have additional issues where shootbolts or slave locks on some patio doors have developed faults, rather than it being the actual main door lock. We find in the summer it's very common for us to be called to Conservatory door lock issues in Barnsley as more of us start to use our gardens!

Remember - if we can't repair your lock, we can supply and fit police approved replacement locks in Barnsley the very same day!

We rang Lock and Key this morning at 9:45 because our front door wouldn't lock. The person we spoke to said someone would be with us between 11:30 and 12:00. Jim rang to say he was on his way and arrived at 11:45. He was very good at explaining why our door didn't lock and what we needed doing. Before agreeing he also told us how much it would cost. Jim fixed our door within twenty minutes. We were very impressed and would definitely use them again.

Had to get our locks changed asap as the barrel broke and we couldn’t use the front door. Locksmiths were super quick to come out, they were at our house within the hour and it took literally 5 minutes to change the lock. The gentleman Jim was very nice and explained why our lock had broken so we could prevent it happening again in the future. Super great service. Would definitely recommend.
