- Euro cylinders – Euro cylinders are the most common type of lock on a UPVC door and will also be found on patio doors, they’re the easiest to drill through and are the cheapest we stock. Be careful to make sure you have anti snap locks when replacing any euro cylinder as this is the most common type of break in through these locks. These locks can either be thumb tab to key or key to key to lock and unlock them.
- Night latches – Commonly called a yale, although yale is just the most common brand of these locks and they aren’t limited to making these locks as they do make other types as well. These are found as second locks to front doors and inside apartments and flats, as the thumb tab on the inside ensures anyone can leave in an emergency. Sometimes these can be opened by carding without even breaking the lock but that depends on the size of the gap in between the doors, if the gap is too small this method won’t be possible.

Locksmith Birmingham British Standards And Insurance
Here at Locksmith Birmingham, we have to make sure our locks comply with British standards so that when we replace locks, people are still covered by their home insurance. British Standard is an institute that regulates testing on goods to a certain set of expectations and based on whether said lock can surpass these expectations then it will have the British standard kite mark engraved (see photo below). This is important as most insurance companies will insist that you use British standard locks to protect your home, or they won’t cover you.
There are a few different types of British lock standards and they all relate to different types of locks with different functions, here are the most common and the ones you’ll find most useful;
- BS3621 – This covers mortise cylinder rim locks that use keys for entrance and exit on both sides, if up to standard these locks are safe unless the assailant has the key.
- Bs8621 – This covers locks that use a key on the outside but can be unlocked on the inside without a key, maybe with a thumb tab. Usually found in flat and apartment buildings to ensure everyone can escape in the case of an emergency
- BS10261 – This covers locks that can only be locked from the outside, these locks can be opened from the inside without a key but this function can be removed.
All of our locks are up to British Standards so you know if we replace your lock your insurance is still going to cover you. So if you’re getting new locks or maybe just checking your current locks, then remember this information and you can’t go wrong.

Digital locks and more from an expert locksmith Birmingham
The most common calls your locksmith Birmingham receives is usually to do with customers having lost their keys, or their keys breaking in the lock, or something else that’s causing trouble with their keys. Thankfully, this doesn’t have to be the way for much longer. Customers can now save themselves the trouble of having difficulty with their keys by investing in a keyless entry system.
When people think of keyless entry systems they think of high-tech, expensive security systems such as retina scanners or biometric fingerprint readers. However, the most common keyless entry system is a digital lock. You’ve likely seen these in office doors, or perhaps on the door to the staff room when you were at school. Wherever you may have seen them first, their popularity is now extending outside those of purely commercial premises. For a number of reasons, your locksmith Birmingham happily recommends their installation on homes too!
The biggest benefit for homeowners is what has already been discussed; problems with keys! With a digital lock, all you need to do is simply remember the code for your property and you’re in. All digital locks are a high-grade of security, but of course different properties require different locking mechanisms. If you’re unsure about whether a digital lock is right for your home, you should call your friendly, local locksmith Birmingham who can discuss quality and price ranges.
They are also increasingly helpful for landlords. We receive untold number of calls from landlords who begrudgingly change their locks every time a tenant moves out. However, if they were to use a digital lock they would save themselves a previous amount of time and money. As a digital lock can be reprogrammed at any time, a landlord simply needs to reprogram it when a tenant leaves and the property is immediately secure again.
Total protection with a mortise lock installation from your local locksmith Birmingham
In Birmingham, we have had more and more issues with break-ins thanks to properties only having a Yale nightlatch lock present on their front wooden doors. It is now common policy of your locksmith Birmingham to recommend the installation of a mortise lock to all front wooden doors. Most properties these days have a variety of cylinder rim lock as they are cheap to manufacture and easy to install. However, convenience can come at a price as they are subsequently easier for criminals to get past in an attempt to enter your property. In fact, it is a minimum requirement for all work we do that a property has a mortise lock present on their front door at least. All our prices are reasonable as we don’t believe anyone should have to be priced out of effective home security and we believe everyone should have this protection as a minimum.
Mortise locks tend to be either deadlocks or sash locks. Which you require may very well require on the makeup of your door, unless you’re after a fresh installation. A deadlock is comprised of both a keyhole and a bolt. When you turn the key in the hole, the bolt slides across, through the door, and locks into the door frame. A sash lock has both of these, but also has a latch and handles too. This means that when you turn the key to unlock the door, you have the added layer of security in having to turn the handles too. If you are unsure which may be the best fit for your door, your locksmith Birmingham is more than happy to discuss this with you in person or over the phone.
Mortise locks, no matter which variety, also have a number of different levers. Effectively, the more levers that are present, the harder it is to pick the lock. Most home insurance providers now require British Standard 5-lever locks as a minimum requirement in order to validate your insurance policy. Thankfully for the people of Birmingham, that’s the exact same requirement of your local locksmith Birmingham. If you would like a higher security lever lock, your locksmith Birmingham can discuss the range of options available to you and arrange an installation at a time convenient for you.

What’s more, whilst the security for businesses needs to be robust, larger budgets and higher value equipment usually means an increased willingness to invest in high specification security.

Your locksmith Birmingham is happy and competent to assist you on any issues regarding realignment or fitting of a brand new aluminium door.

Small security improvements
Birmingham’s crime rate unfortunately doesn’t seem to look like passing over anytime soon. As a result, customers should consider making small improvements to their home security which will add another layer of protection for next-to-nothing in price.
A cylinder left exposed is a whole house left exposed. This is why we always recommend installing an escutcheon plate on your front door, back door and any door which has an exposed cylinder. This acts as a protective plate for the cylinder and beds it into the door. This successfully prevents any potential criminals from being able to successfully remove the cylinder from the door itself. Additionally, you should always check the health of the strike plate of your door. You’ll notice this as the metallic plate on the inside of your door frame which covers the holes where your locking mechanism secures into. The protection garnered from these should not be underestimated and they should always be checked – assuming your door frames have them – to ensure they haven’t worn away over the years. If they need replacing, your reliable locksmith Birmingham always carries spares for a variety of door frames.
One of our least favourite phone calls is from owners of homes with sliding patio doors reporting a break-in. This is usually where an unwelcome guest has managed to enter the property by simply lifting the door out of the sliding rails. However, this can be easily prevented by installing an anti-lift patio door lock. This is a keyless locking system which prevents the patio door from being lifted out of the rails and pulled out of the door frame. Not only this, but the more upward outside pressure that is exerted on the lock, the tighter it gets and the more it secures the door in the frame.
Everyone deserves access to simple home security improvements no matter the type of doors or locking systems they have. A professional Birmingham locksmith is available all year round and happy to give free advice on any potential improvements you may be considering.
Can a locksmith complete an affordable installation?

No matter the type of security you desire or the budget you need to stick to, there is always a reasonably priced, effective security solution available to you. This is often very important when moving home. This locksmith Birmingham recommends that all new homeowners, as standard, should have their locks changed. This is not to suggest anything untoward will happen and that previous homeowners are a concern, but it is a good practice to get into the habit of and if safety is the aim, it’s vital.

How can I best ensure my security is in line with my insurance policy?
A common issue which arises during insurance claims, both in home and business environments, is the proof that the right security was fitted at the time of the incident. This often comes from the technical specifications given and the lack of expertise to decipher what is needed. There is a limit to how much researching on the internet can help you. The best way to ensure that your security is in line with your insurance policy is to get in touch with a local and trained professional.
When assisting homes and businesses with lining up the actual security with the requirements of the policy we often meet with the requirement of a rack bolt. Similar or the same as a mortise bolt. If this is something that you are required to have, it means that a lock which is is installed inside of the door is needed which bolts the door and provides, together with a strong door and frame, a secure door.
A point worth noting, is that if you have a rack bolt installed already and you are experience resistance when opening it. Have it checked straight away. This type of lock is breakable with wear and tear that happens over many years, and if you have difficulty opening the lock at present. Chances are it will only get worse.
If you’ve taken out an insurance policy it’s natural to want to ensure your security is in line with it. If there is any terms or required features which you don’t understand, our advisers are available all hours to assist. Of course any work that is performed is guaranteed. Don’t wait to get up to date with the security, for your insurance and for your safety. Feel free to ring us at any time.
We here at Locksmith Birmingham think that one of the most important things to consider when thinking about preserving a business for as long as possible is customer service, that’s why we attach the same hard work and commitment to customer service as we do with all of our locksmith work. We are absolutely shocked and appalled by the amount of business out there who don’t care about their customer once money has exchanged hands which we think is shocking business behaviour and that’s why we strive to be better than other companies when it comes to customer service.
We’ve been serving the people of Birmingham for over 20 years and we firmly believe excellent customer service is not just one of many attributes that have allowed us to continue business, but rather we think it’s right up there with the most important attributes.

Like other areas around the UK, Birmingham has unfortunately been subject to ever increasing crime rates. It’s not quite clear what factors have contributed towards this but everyone is aware of the danger it brings to properties around the city. Unsurprisingly this has resulted in more calls to your local Birmingham locksmith enquiring about what steps concerned customers can take in the ongoing battle of securing one’s home. As an understanding and caring locksmith team we decided it would be most appropriate to outline a few measures you can take in further securing your property. Security doesn’t have to be expensive and our focus is always on providing cost-effective methods of protecting your property.
A very simple way of protecting your property can be by installing a door chain. Many people think this is only useful in determining who the person at your front door is before letting them in your property, but in fact it can be the difference between protecting your property and letting criminals run amok in your property. If a criminal manages to get through your locking mechanism, the presence of a door chain will usually mean they have to barge the door down to get through if installed correctly. The time and effort it takes to do this coupled with the noise it makes alerting either yourself or a neighbour, should help protect your property and ensure the authorities are alerted quickly.
Sometimes wooden doors only come with a Yale lock. Of course, this is convenient for many as it allows for a door to be shut without having to physically lock it with a key. However, this convenience could leave your property vulnerable. Only by installing a mortise lock to your front door can you add a layer of security that truly protects your home from unwanted visitors.
For all this and more, make sure you call your local locksmith Birmingham for free advice and a free quote for any works requested.

Home Security With Locksmith Birmingham
Here at Locksmith Birmingham, we’re dedicated to improving peoples home security on a daily basis. We think home security is super important to any home and we also feel it get’s overlooked by home owners until it’s too late. We want to raise awareness about how important home security is, and the easier steps you can take to improving your home security, even on a budget. Most people don’t even consider that home security might start in your garden, it’s the bridge between your property and the outside word that a burglar will attempt to cross in order to gain access into your home. Why not make it a wobbly bridge that’s full of surprises, for instance an exterior light with a motion sensor can be picked up relatively cheaply from a local hardware store and it could prove priceless in the fight against burglars.
We’d also recommend checking your doors and locks and then doing some research into the most common types of break in performed on those material doors and those types of locks, for instance if you had a UPVC door you may or may not already know but lock snapping is the most common way a break in is performed on this type of door and this type of lock, so it might be an idea to first of all check if you have anti snap locks, and if you don’t then replace your existing cylinder with an anti snap cylinder.
If this sounds like a lot to take in then don’t worry as we also offer a security survey carried out by one of our trained highly experienced locksmiths who’s seen every conceivable type of break in on every type of door and lock!
