Lock picking is more art than science. There is a definite “feel” for it that is gained through years of practice. All locks are different, but the same basic principles apply. The easiest way to pick a this type of lock with limited or no experience is to use the fast and dirty method of “Bitch Picking” don’t blame us we didn’t name it! 1. Insert Tension Wrench into the Bottom or top of the key way The tension wrench is the key (excuse the pun) to picking a lock. Thanks to movies and tv people wrongfully think it’s the pick, because that is the thing that’s actually lifting the key pins to line up with the shear line. Here’s why the tension wrench is so important, as you’re lifting the pin sets with your pick the wrench puts tension on the plug. If you’re applying the right amount of torque on the plug, once the driver pin passes the shear line, the plug will rotate slightly. When you pull your pick out, the key pins will drop back down, but the driver pin will catch the edge of the plug, staying above the sheer line You’ll keep lifting pins with your pick and applying pressure with your tension wrench, until all the driver pins have cleared the shear line. So take your tension wrench and place it in the bottom or top of the key hole, Apply slight pressure in the direction you would turn the key if you had it. And by slight I mean slight. 2. Insert Pick at Top of Lock Pick your pick. I prefer the Bogota rake that has three peaks and find it to catch multiple pins making the job quicker but use what ever you have or can improvise. 3. While Applying Slight Torque to Your Wrench, Scrub Your Pick Back and Forth in the Key Hole 4. Repeat Until All the Pins Set Keep applying torque on your wrench and scrubbing the pins until they all set.

Here at Locksmith Nottingham we only use locks up to the British standards set by the British Standards Institute, this is because if we replace someone’s lock with a lock that isn’t up to British standards it could mean they aren’t covered by their home insurance if they get burglarised.

And if a lock passes it’s branded with the British Standards kite mark (seen below), which tells you that it’s up to scratch. http://the-local-locksmith.co.uk/Nottingham/images/House-Lockout_77.jpg

The number one cause of Upvc Door Closing and Locking Problems is misalignment of the Upvc door and it’s frame. Misalignment is normally down to worn hinges and/or incorrectly packed door panels or glass. So how do you check if your Upvc door is out of alignment and how to we remedy it. 1. Take a look at the mitres on the door and frame - they are the diagonal joints in the corners - do they line up with with each other and form a continuous straight line? 2. With your door open place a spirit level on the top of the door, is the door level? 3. Open the door ever so slightly and look down the edge of the door on the lock side, is the gap between the frame and the door consistent all the way down or is it a smaller gap or even making contact at the top? If you find any or all of the above problems then your door and frame is misaligned and that will be the cause of your locking or unlocking problems and if left will only get worse to the point where you will not be able to lock the door or cause damage to the locking mechanism resulting in a multipoint failure. Adjusting the Upvc Door Hinges to fix the misalignment. Most modern Upvc doors have FLAG HINGES fitted that have a up and down & in and out adjustment option. Older upvc doors may have BUTT HINGES fitted that offer a very limited adjustment. Adjusting a Flag Hinge. Upvc Door Closing Problems1. Lateral Adjustment 2. – 3. Height Adjustment or Compression Adjustment Height adjustment can either be No 2 or No3 depending on the make and model of the hinge. Remove the plastic plug No1 and insert an Allen Key into the hole, turn the Allen Key until the door starts to pull back towards the hinge side of the frame a great tip that will help is draw a line with a pencil on the case of the hinge and onto the door this will give you a visible indication that the door is moving in the correct direction, note how many turns you have completed and adjust the middle hinge (if needed) by the same amount until the door is level with the frame. Keep checking after every adjustment to see if the door is closing and locking correctly. If the door still catches on the bottom of the frame or is difficult to lock then you may need to raise the door by removing the plastic cover No 2 or No 3 and adjusting all of the hinges up by the same amount until the door closes and locks correctly. Again mark the position of the adjuster with the pencil until you have determined which one is the height adjustment. This can be determined by closing the door and turning adjuster No1 or No2, if the door moves towards you or away from you the adjustment is Compression, If the door moves up or down the adjuster is the height. If the door has been fully adjusted but still does not close or lock correctly there are a few more things that you will want to try. The first is to adjust the bottom hinge away from the door. This will lift the door on the lock side, but be aware that sending the door out at he bottom will also narrow the gap between the lock and the keeps and any over adjustment may make the lock or door hit the frame or keepers. The second thing you can try is to move the keeps down until they are in line with the locking points - Latch, locking Bolts, Hooks and or rollers. Butt Hinges: Upvc Door Closing and Locking ProblemsButt hinges offer very little adjustment options. The old style type of Butt Hinges have an Allen Key grub screw that holds the hinge pin in position. To adjust these type of hinges, remove the grub screw and turn the hinge pin with an Allen Key to pull the door towards the hinge side of the frame. The hinge may have just one grub screw and pin or may have two. The new style type of Butt Hinges have a cross headadjuster at the top and bottom and can be easily adjusted with a screwdriver. They only offer a very small adjustment but it may be enough to fix the locking and closing problem.
Locksmith Nottingham suggests a simple, cheap and effective solution to make it appear like you are at home – timers. These can be linked to a multitude of electrical devices to turn them on and make it seem like you are inside even if you are not. The most common time to use timers for lights is in the evening, as if there are no lights on it is very obvious that no one is home. These only need to be on for a few hours and shouldn’t increase your energy bill by too much, and the added security is more than worth it. http://the-local-locksmith.co.uk/Nottingham/images/Local-Locksmith-Service_104.jpg

Lock picking is more art than science. There is a definite “feel” for it that is gained through years of practice. All locks are different, but the same basic principles apply. The easiest way to pick a this type of lock with limited or no experience is to use the fast and dirty method of “Bitch Picking” don’t blame us we didn’t name it! 1. Insert Tension Wrench into the Bottom or top of the key way The tension wrench is the key (excuse the pun) to picking a lock. Thanks to movies and tv people wrongfully think it’s the pick, because that is the thing that’s actually lifting the key pins to line up with the shear line. Here’s why the tension wrench is so important, as you’re lifting the pin sets with your pick the wrench puts tension on the plug. If you’re applying the right amount of torque on the plug, once the driver pin passes the shear line, the plug will rotate slightly. When you pull your pick out, the key pins will drop back down, but the driver pin will catch the edge of the plug, staying above the sheer line You’ll keep lifting pins with your pick and applying pressure with your tension wrench, until all the driver pins have cleared the shear line. So take your tension wrench and place it in the bottom or top of the key hole, Apply slight pressure in the direction you would turn the key if you had it. And by slight I mean slight. 2. Insert Pick at Top of Lock Pick your pick. I prefer the Bogota rake that has three peaks and find it to catch multiple pins making the job quicker but use what ever you have or can improvise. 3. While Applying Slight Torque to Your Wrench, Scrub Your Pick Back and Forth in the Key Hole 4. Repeat Until All the Pins Set Keep applying torque on your wrench and scrubbing the pins until they all set.
Maybe it is naïve for a locksmith Nottingham to think, but the boys and girls that work for your favourite local locksmith always find it surprising how very little people know about their own home security, or the security for their business. Of course, people can’t be expected to know everything otherwise locksmiths wouldn’t exist! However, considering most people seem to have a grasp of the basics if work is required on the electrics in their house, the mechanics on their car or even the plumbing in their bathroom, very few people understand the basics of locks and their mechanisms. By understand some of the basics of how they work, you can not only improve your own home security by achieving tailored solutions, but you can also help your locksmith Nottingham provide an accurate quote for both time and cost when you need the assistance of a trained professional when everything is not quite right.

I made an appt today at 11am, left work to get home on time to meet them, and NO-ONE. I called, and talked to Russ (i think) who said (at 11:20) "we're just finishing a job and we'll be out there in 20min or so." No call to me, no communication that they were running late. I complained that if I stood up my client or showed up late for work I would be fired. "things happen" When i got a little fiesty i was told "I don't work for you" (i agree, but i believe when I am paying for a service, there is a certain expectation of quality and good communcation). Russ told me "I'll not be admonished by anyone" When I said I'll find another locksmith he said "please do!"

Whether you've just bought a home, built a home, or have been in your home for quite some time, you have thought about home security. Have you taken any action? It's time to read about home security systems so that you can make the right decision for you and your family. If you have a home alarm system, make sure all the wires are concealed. If a burglar wants to break into your home, he may cut any wires he sees before following through with his plan. Depending on where the wires are, hide them with plants, rocks or other natural looking items. Build a good relationship with your neighbours. Crime is less likely in areas where the neighbours co-operate with other, keeping an eye out for suspicious behaviour. Don't be afraid to make the first move. Offer to watch your neighbour's property when they go on vacation. In the future, they can return the favour. Consider hiding a spare key on your dog. If you have dogs who have free access to the outdoors, try taping a key securely to the inside of one of their collars. This will make your key accessible should you lock yourself out, while keeping your home safe. If you have multiple dogs, choose the dog who is least friendly with strangers. Before buying a home security system, ask yourself if you really need one. Sometimes adding some extra deadbolts or reinforcing windows is enough to keep your home safe. These options are less expensive than a security system, and they can be effective. Investigate all of your options before making your final decision. Now you know your options, and you can better make a decision regarding home security. If you use the tips and tricks that have been given to you, then you are going to be well on your way to enjoying peace of mind. Put the safety of your family first.
Mortise locks tend to come in two main varieties. The first is that of the classic deadlock. This is comprised of a keyhole and a bolt. When the key is turned, the bolt either locks or unlocks into the frame of the door. The sash lock is similar but contains a latch and handles. This means that simply unlocking the bolt is not enough to unlock the door. The latch means that the handles must be turned in order to unlock the door. It may seem that the latch provides higher security, but often it is simply a case of which is the most appropriate for your door. This is something your locksmith Nottingham can help you work out with a few simple questions over the phone, if not in person.

These locks engage a metal rod that fits into a separate chamber outside of the door frame, rather than through the frame.

It is also typically harder to pick, and is very inexpensive.
