New handles

Today i went to a new development in Harold Wood to fit a new set of handles which had to come from Denmark. Once the handles were on the top and bottom keeps had to be moved so the door would lock smoothly . Forcing the handle up to lock the door was the cause of the outside handle coming away from the base .

Broken key

This evening i was called to a property in Harold wood where the customer had a broken key in the garage door lock ,she advised me she wasnt sure if she had another key. So she asked for the cylinder to be replaced. I removed and replaced the cylinder and asked the customer to check it.

I tried another keyed there was sticking which would cause the key to break. I advised the customer and they wanted the cylinder changed

New business

I was asked to quote on changing the locks on 2 doors on a commercial property in Basildon.  The doors had 2 euro cylinders on each. I quoted for 4 ABS cylinders all with the same keys and 3 extra keys. The customer agreed with the price and i returned to fit them now the  customer has piece of mind that any one with a old key cannot enter the property. 

New build door problems

Upvc lock mechanism

I went to a property where the customer was having difficulty opening the front door .I arrived to find the top roller was not coming out the keep unless you slammed the handle down hard .I took down measurements of the lock i advised the customer of the price and he agreed to have it replaced . I returned with the new lock fitted it made a few adjustment now the customer can open the door no problems

UPVC Door handles

I was asked by a customer to have a look at a composite door because the door had to be locked all the time otherwise anyone could walk in.I removed the handles to check the mechanism to see if there lock had a centre case which would allow the door to be shut and the the outside handle would not open the door. The centre case had 2 spindle holes so all it needed was new handles, i took some measurements contacted the supplier.  Rang the customer gave them a price,they wanted the job done.i ordeered the handles and when they arrived i fitted them whilst i was there i advised they had a thumb turn cylinder fitted so the could lock the door and not run the risk of being locked out because they left the key on the inside
