What is a mortise lock?
When purchasing a house, it’s important to understand the types of locks that are on the access points to your property. After all, you need to know not just how secure your property is, but also the locks that you are likely to need to replace once you move in. As most lock professionals would recommend too, this locksmith London suggests that all new homeowners should change their locks on arrival as standard.
So what type of locks do most doors have? Whilst UPVC doors are providing popular, especially on new build homes, the most common type of door in the UK is still the wooden door. Wooden doors tend to have one of, or a combination of, either a cylinder rim lock or a mortise lock. The former has proven popular ever since its creation as it’s cheaper to produce and easier to fit. However, this locksmith London does not recommend such a lock, usually a Yale latch lock, in isolation. Whilst they are cost-effective, they can leave properties vulnerable unless they’re supported by a mortise lock.
A mortise lock, or deadlock as it’s otherwise known, is the more traditional lock with a traditional keyhole shape. These have made a comeback in recent years and it is now not uncommon for home insurance providers to request their presence on a door as standard in order to validate your policy. The most common request from home insurance companies is for the mortise lock to have either 5 levers or be British Standard. This is a mark of quality and makes it for more difficult for criminals to break through. No matter where you request our services across London, you will always find that your locksmith London fits British Standard mortise locks as standard. Call us today and we can provide you with an accurate quote to match the level of security you require.
Know your security with a local locksmith London
With the busy lives that people lead, no one can expect to be a master at everything. As the saying goes, there a lot of people who are a jack of all trades and a master of none. When it comes to common problems and jobs that we undertake around our homes, it seems most receive the requisite minimum attention apart from our security. This is arguably the most important thing within your home, otherwise it may as well be a public building owned by the local authority. Our team of locksmiths are surprised that many people can complete basic electrical and plumbing jobs in their own home, but very few people fully understand the basics of their security. If you understand your home security you will be able to secure your property more as you will know the warning signs of when things might be going wrong and you need the help of a professional locksmith London.
Most homes have either a wooden door or UPVC door. This is important as it determines the type of security that is likely to be on your door. If you have a wooden door you are likely to have a Yale latch lock and possibly a mortise lock too, which is the one with the traditional keyhole shape. Then if you have a UPVC door you will have a eurocylinder lock which connects to an internal multipoint locking mechanism which is the part with the hooks which secures the door into the wall.
So what are the common problems which affect UPVC doors? If you’ve found that your key won’t enter the lock or will enter but won’t turn, then it’s likely that you have a problem with the eurocylinder lock itself. It’s possible that upon inspection your locksmith London may be able to repair this if there’s something in the lock. Otherwise, it is likely the lock itself will have to be replaced. Similarly, if you realise that your handles or the eurocylinder lock is spinning, then it’s highly likely that there is a problem with the internal multipoint locking mechanism. If this is the case then if it’s caused by a specific component and this can’t be repaired or replaced, then the whole mechanism will need to be replaced.
By understanding your security you can be more informed of the likely causes and solutions that may afflict your locks.
What can a locksmith London tell me about digital locks?
These days it’s important to have diversity in your locking mechanisms. Your expert locksmith London recommends installing digital door locks on your property, especially if you own commercial premises. Digital door locks are not only convenient and fast to open, but there’s no need to cut keys! This means you can have as many or few people as you desire to have access to a particular door. This is particularly convenient if you have a large office!
One of the most practical features of the digital door lock is that it can be reprogrammed at any time. As a local locksmith London, we receive regular calls from landlords wanting to change the locks on their property once the previous tenant has moved out. However, the benefit of a digital lock installation by a London locksmith is that you can simply reprogram the lock whenever you like. That means that if tenants leave, or members of staff no longer work for you, all you have to do is enter a new code manually and you have successfully secured your property again. This saves the hassle of having to have keys cut by a local locksmith London and also results in costs savings too!
In the last few years, the security industry has made a greater turn toward the use of high-tech security locks. One particular example is that of biometric fingerprint readers. It goes without saying that these locks are incredibly secure, but they are not without their difficulties if the reader breaks and can be fairly expensive. Digital locks tend to last a lot longer and their operation is a lot more straightforward than the more high-tech locking mechanisms. If either of these types of locks interest you, you should call an experienced locksmith London who can provide you with an accurate quote for any product you have in mind and give you information on how long you would have to wait for a successful installation.

The locksmith profession isn’t as simple as there being a one-size fits all approach to protecting properties. Each one is different and the access points to each vary meaning you need to be sure you can rely on an expert, highly-trained locksmith when you need one most.
Patio doors can unfortunately be a very vulnerable point of entry for your property. As a locksmith London, we’ve had countless calls from across the city from customers concerned by news that patio doors can simply be lifted out of the rails and their hinges allowing easy access to unwanted visitors. While sliding patio doors are a stylish addition to any property, the reports aren’t wrong in that they can be easily accessed by someone with the right tools and the wrong attitude. However, they can be very easily protected by making a small investment. Installing an anti-lift patio door lock is just the protection your door needs. This keyless locking system prevents the patio door from being lifted out of the rails and removed with ease. In fact, if someone tried to do that the angle of the lock and the locking mechanism itself would cause the anti-lift lock to tighten and make it even harder to remove. As Swift Locksmiths London have always believed, protecting your home really doesn’t have to be hard or expensive.
Maybe you just want a deterrent for your property? There’s a wide range of cost-effective measures you can take, but none are probably more cost-effective than the placing of a sign in your window. Some of our customers opt for signs warning outsiders to the presence of CCTV (whether it exists or not) and some prefer to put a ‘Neighbourhood Watch’ sticker in their window. Both signs have been proven to effectively reduce crime and deter criminals. Of course, you still need to ensure you adequately maintain your home security, but it’s good to have measures which prevent unwanted visitors from even taking another look at your property.c

Secure your front door even more with Swift Locksmith London
Sometimes you may get the feeling that the current security on your front door just isn’t enough. The most important thing for anyone when they’re tucked away safely in their bed at night is to feel secure, after all it’s what contributes to a good night’s rest and has untold health benefits. The same goes for when we’re at work during the day. We all want to feel safe in the knowledge that all are belongings within our property are protected. However, with rising crime rates across the country your local London locksmith receives more and more calls everyday from concerned customers asking how they can improve their home security. Whether your front door is plastic, wooden or composite, there’s almost always something extra you can attach to the door for that added level of security.
A very basic layer of security is a door chain. This is especially important in the event of any unwanted criminal activity in the middle of the night. If an unwelcome visitor attempts to unlock or break your door illegally from the outside, the security door chain will delay their entry substantially and also draw attention to them from either yourself or your neighbours. That way the authorities can be alerted quickly and the criminals detained before any damage occurs to your property.
Another very popular installation is anti-thrust plates. These usually go hand-in-hand with mortise locks on front doors. These are effectively a piece of metal place on the outside of the door frame which prevents anyone from being able to try and jam the lock open. While these are popular, the correct installation requires the correct product and only by having a professional London locksmith examine your property first, will you be able to ensure the right installation which gives the perfect protection for your property. For any queries or concerns regarding further additions to your home security, make sure to call your locksmith London today.

Dedicated Light Bulb holders
For locksmith London the already made light bulb holders which come with timer and often dimmer capabilities are a very good option if you would like to stay away from any wiring and re-wiring. Instead of getting a timer installed at the wall socket or use a converter, you simply install the light fitting. Often this type of fitting is not something that you can program and work on the being activated due to the light in the room. And a draw back which locksmith London would like to bring up is that they have at times been reported as not working correctly with a lamp shade.
7 day timers
Something swift locksmith London also highly recommends, for utility without complicated installation is the type of timers that come with digital programming which allow for up to a 7 day cycle to be programmed. This means that you can program in something which doesn’t seem programmed, and most commonly this type of timer is just an addition to your plug socket as well and operating on a battery. For locksmith London this would be the ideal choice for quick installation and for programming utility, and therefore higher security value.
What timer to pick?
The decision on what type of timer to get is something that locksmith London are happy to leave up to you, it’s a matter of preference and what is of use in practice for each individual. Regardless of your own choice of light timer, we are advocates for the use of light timers as a security measure. And should you wish to make sure that the rest of your home security is where it needs to be in order to keep you secure as can be, please get in touch with the locksmith London, we are always welcoming the opportunity to assist and help our customers.
Defensive Gardening with a knowledgeable locksmith London
The safety of your home starts where your property starts. While people often think about how to secure their house itself – for example, with high quality locks and security systems – the garden is often overlooked as a potential source of additional security. Our skilled locksmith London experts know that the garden is the first line of defence against burglars and unwanted visitors, and we highly recommend that you consider some defensive gardening!
As spring approaches we have some great tips as to how you can use your garden wisely. Firstly, consider the easy entry points to your home – the ground floor windows. Windows often have lower quality locks and so are easily targeted by robbers. One way to protect these entry points is to grow thorny bushes underneath them. Our locksmith London team suggest growing a beautiful rose bush, which would both look great and have the added effect of deterring a burglar, as they do not want to get caught up in the thorns of the plant as this would injure them and leave behind evidence.
You can also use hedges to your advantage by planting these around your property, however make sure you use them to close off your garden and not throughout it – hedges in the middle of your garden provide hiding places for potential danger, meaning someone could sneak up on you and your family. Gravel paths are another good defence mechanism as they mean you are able to hear anyone approaching. While it is true that a robber may not walk on the path itself, it is an extra safety precaution that may help.
So when you are gardening this spring and summer, follow our great locksmith London advice and consider your first line of defence!

Getting a professional Locksmith London window grille installation
Unfortunately for many homeowners around London, the rates of burglary have increased considerably and more people are finding themselves the victim of a horrible and intrusive crime. That’s why you should consider an even higher level of security for your home, to look after your family and to keep your precious belongings safe. One security feature that people often don’t consider is window grilles for their ground floor windows. There is a misconception that window grilles are ugly, and make your home look like a prison and uninviting. While they make the home uninviting for burglars, we at locksmith London offer a range of bespoke, strong and beautiful window grilles to suit every sort of property!
Whether you have a Victorian-era townhouse, or a modern detached home in the suburbs, we have a window grille to suit you! What are the benefits of this additional security feature? Well, most burglars are looking for easy targets – open doors, windows, easy to reach access points. That’s why burglars will enter a property through the ground floor 90% of the time, and why your ground floor windows are a particular risk. The existence of the grilles themselves will easily deter a thief, as there is no easy way for them to get into and out of your property fast. That’s why it’s one of our locksmith London recommended security additions to any home or business. A window grille also means you can have the freedom to open your windows more during the day and night, and let fresh air circulate through your home, which will make your family feel much more upbeat and relaxed. Why not call now for a one-on-one with our talented locksmith London team, who can lead you through the benefits of a window grille for your property today!

Local locksmith London helping those who are locked out!
So you’re locked out. Well, what can you do to rectify your situation? There are a few things you can try, and we at Swift Locksmith London want to help you as far as possible! The first thing you can do is to ask for help. If you have housemates or a neighbour with a spare key, then go to them! They will surely get you back inside your home in no time. Next, if you are renting, why not try calling your landlord? Or if you live in an apartment complex, then stop by your property manager’s office. Both of these professionals should have spare keys to your home, and if you ask nicely they are sure to lend them to you to get you back inside. Once in, you’ll need to get a copy of the key cut for yourself in the future!
If no one has another key, then you can try looking for an open window. Of course, if you do have an open window then you have an even bigger problem than being locked out – your home is at great risk from burglars! Be sure to not leave windows open in the future, but this time it may have helped you more than caused a problem. Now if none of these have worked, it is time to call a skilled and professional locksmith London to help you get back into your home without causing any damage. Some people would suggest trying to remove your doorknob or pick the lock yourself, but this can cause major issues and will often lead to you having to call a London locksmith to repair the additional damage you’ve caused anyway! So simply leave it to the professionals to get you back into your home with ease and peace of mind.
