Not exactly the fountain of youth but still quite amusing none the less. Customer's door full of water so had dropped and was causing misalignment with locking points on her upvc door, so hard to lock. One bucket, two wellies, and door adjusted, and was good to go again.

Customer snapped their only Avocet ABS key (by trying to straighten it as was bent). Door locked. Thanks to 15 years experience, patience, a practical head (and sellotape) the key was reassembled to allow door to be unlocked and cylinder removed, to be replaced with new one. #locksmiths #cleverth...

In 15 years of locksmithing this is my first time seeing an old GU centre case in 40mm backset (broken of course). So replaced with a new version full strip and customer good to go again. Fault caused by 'stiff to raise' handles (misalignment of door lock/keeps).

Not one, not two, not three....but four upvc door mechanism gearboxes changed today. All failed due to misaligned doors and being stiff to operate. All replacements carried on van so one time only visits. Do your locks work smoothly?

Two Maco gearboxes replaced in as many days. Since these are the Mark 5 versions you would think they might have managed to engineer a long lasting unit by now. They fail easily when upvc doors are not aligned to operate properly. So if your handles are hard to raise then your door may need re-al...

Replaced a broken Hoppe balcony locking handle today. Nice rugged design. Pity the old version had square ends! More modern styling I guess. #locksmiths

Our door wouldn’t lock as we were leaving for work so we contacted Linacre Locksmiths. Wayne responded straight away and offered to come at a time that suited us. He was very thorough and explained everything that he needed to do and why. Would 100% recommend.

Linacre locksmiths were easy to communicate with, prompt, very professional and friendly. They came and fitted a new Yale - very efficient and thorough, and offered some really helpful advice about the locks and door in general. Would definitely use them again and recommend to others.

I called at 9am as my front door wouldn’t lock. I explained over the phone what was happening and got a estimate for what would need doing and an offer to come out straight away. Wayne was right on time and fixed the lock on site. Price was exactly what had been quoted on the phone. Very polite and helpful and would thoroughly recommend.
