Here at Poole’s Locksmiths in the event of a lost keys situation we always try and gain entry to your home using non destructive entry methods. Over the years we have seen some horrendous works carried out by so called locksmiths. One trend at the minute seems to be “locksmiths” (i use that term lightly) using hole saws to gain entry to lost keys on Mortice sash locks and Mortice dead lock. This method leaves a huge hole in the door that cannot be filled properly no matter what the “locksmith” tells you. If you find someone doing this method stop them or warn others.
These “locksmiths” are also using what is called a lock puller on euro cylinders on uPVC doors and composite, some wood. A lock puller is a tool that drives a screw into the barrel on your door, then a big lump of metal hooks over it with a ratchet attached and they wind the ratchet around which pulls the lock from the door. This is meant to break the euro cylinder at its weakest point and that’s where the retaining screw is. These systems can cause major damage to the multi-point locking system in the door, normally because the lock has not snapped like its meant to do when using this system and the internal gearbox unit gets all bent out of shape.
If you see someone using this method of entry tell them to stop, unless its vitally urgent you get in fast. A normal locksmith will be able to get you into your home pretty quick without using the above tools anyway.
