Broken key in Assa Abloy lock

Broken Key In Lock

A customer called out a locksmith with the problem of a Broken Key In Lock.  The following day that customer called us asking if we would go and have a look.  They told us that the “locksmith” they called said he couldn’t do the job because it was an electric lock, he left site having unnecessarily sold them a new cylinder complete with 6 keys which he left behind.  When I arrived on site I was horrified to find the lock completely dismantled and left in a pile on the floor behind the door!  It was a pile of all the parts belonging to an electric Assa Abloy lock, live wires were hanging out of the door, the building had been left unsecured.  This would have been a simple job for a professional locksmith who would know how to unscrew the cylinder, extract the piece of broken key and then screw it back into the lock, no new cylinder required!  I re-assembled the lock back on the door, most importantly left the property secure and one extremely happy customer.  What should have been a quick, standard priced job ended up being much more expensive.

Failed Multipoint Lock (mpl)

Attended to a lady in Crowborough after a locksmith’s failed attempts to open her upvc back door with a broken multipoint lock left in tears.  We were able to open the broken lock, fit a new mpl gearbox and leave her overjoyed with a working upvc back door.

She thought she was calling a local Crowborough Locksmith she found on Google but it turned out that his company was in London, so do your research!
