The Phone didn't stop ringing yesterday.
I had a good mixture of jobs yesterday spread over a wide area as well. Started with problems operating a upvc door in St lawrence, the customer had come back from holiday and they couldn't unlock the back door.
I go the door open by using my airbags and door wedges, basically just popping each lock out one at a time and then serviced and repaired the ERA Lockcase. It seems to be a common fault with these lockcases that a small bit of the lockcase breaks off inside and jams the lock, thus not being able to unlock your upvc door.
I then had a nice drive to Bromley on the out skirts of london for lost keys to a shutter. The angle grinder came out to cut the padlock off, took the old single Euro out, replaced it with a new one and thats one working shutter again that they can use to protect their property.
Then back home to Essex to re-program a smart car remote key, replace a Yale lock in bicknacre, replaced a Euro lock in a upvc door, and cut and and programmed a new remote key for a Toyota Aygo.
Put your local locksmiths number in your phone for the one time you may need them.

With Autum approaching, and the worst time for burglaries a couple of months away, is it time for you to upgrade your locks.
Abs are improving the standard of locks all the time and you can now get a 3 star rated Euro lock which is now insurance recommended and police prefferred.
These BSI Kitemark locks are anti snap, anti lock, and anti bump, and are used by police as they are proven to beat the burglars.
Have a look at your locks to see if yours have got the Kitemark stamp, if not i would consider upgrading your locks. If you compare the value of the price of your posessions you can protect your home and everything in it at a fraction of this.
Insurance companies have recently changed their policies and request that you have British Standards locks on external doors. Please check your insurance policy to see if this something that you might need to do.
A.R Locksmiths can supply and fit the Abs High security Euro lock and any other british standard locks. Please call your local Essex locksmith on 07813842390 and book an appointment for a home safety check.
One of our jobs today was to cut and program an Astra key for a customer in Witham.
The car had been sitting there for six months due to the keys being lost and the couple never getting round to sorting it out.
The customer had spoken to his nearest Vauxhall dealer for a quote but was shocked to hear what they came back with. He then rang us and was very happy with our quote as it was half the price of the main dealer.
So by the next day I was round there cutting and programming a new key for his Astra, plus it needed a jump start as it hadnt been started for a while, 20 mins and it was done.
If you need a new key for your car then please call your Local Auto Locksmith as they will be cheaper and quicker than the main dealers.

Need a new ignition barrel for a transit??
Someone broke into a customers transit in harold hill leaving the ignition with a key jammed in the lock and the van undriveable.
A few people had tried to remove the broken key that was jammed in there but had no luck. I ordered a new igniton barrel and built the lock to his current key code, this would save time and money as i wouldn't have to re-program new keys to the van.
Within 24 hours i had recieved and built the new lock, removed the old ignition and installed the new ignition lock. Even tho intially it was a bit of a pain for the customer as it cost him two days work, he was very happy with the work and that i managed to do it the cheapest way possible.

Back off holiday and straight back to work.
A customer lost his keys for his old style aluminium patio door in heybridge maldon.
I only had access to outside of the door as the room was full floor to ceiling with boxes.
I gained entry by snapping the lock and removing it, then using a specialised tool to unlock the patio door. I fitted a new euro lock, which comes with 3 new keys, and left the customer to clear a lot of boxes.
There are still a lot of old style patio doors around and unfortunately buying parts for them is getting harder. A.R Locksmiths can still get these parts or repair existing locks. Any problems with your patio door locks, please call us on 07813842390
Love the fact that I'm on holiday and booking work in for when I get back, business must be good.

Programmed a new key card for a renault laguna in Maldon
The customer had dropped his old key card a few weeks ago and then started to incurr
problems with it until the day came when it stopped working.
I tested his old renault key card to see if it was sending a frequency and the reading was coming back with nothing. Normally a remote key for your vehichle should send a frequency of 433 MHz, so if your remote key stops working then this is probably why.
If you start to have problems with your key, then call A.R Locksmiths and we will come and test your key and give the best advice of what to do next.
Programming a new Renault key card is pretty simple so get a replacemnt before the situation gets more complicated, and remember a local locksmith will be cheaper than going to the dealer.
