Cool night latch security keep : Locksmith


Here’s one I worked on a few months back. There are a few around my area, but this was the first time I had to fix one. It all works on counterweights – no springs at all. As the door closes, the latch bolt kicks the two pegs down so they sit tight behind the door. Video here: https://streamable.com/gzha54

Made by Banham (many many years ago) for those that are interested.

Locksmith came to a fellows house drunk last night couldn’t pick it decided to drill the key way because he couldn’t drill the bottom so I put one straight through on the horizon. : Locksmith


Didn’t help that he wanted to pay Friday when he initially called me and I said no, the other locksmith agreed to being paid Friday, he borrowed the money and called and explained he didn’t know what he was doing because he never had a locksmith before so I explained that he couldn’t pick it so he drilled it and wrongly, then he was amazed that I did it in a few minutes and passed the mess he made. Upside I only charged him £60 and I said I will just call it a barrel change because I felt bad that he got swindled by a drunk locksmith. It was also a night call out.

Knob alternative? So it has 2 locks, one simple deadbolt for my August Lock, and the main(manual) to be safe during the night. However, since I have no knob, the smart lock is pretty useless since I still need to insert my key to be used as a knob to open the door. Are there any alternatives? Thanks

Night latch not locking from outside : Locksmith


Just need some advice, I fitted a night latch to a customers door and they advised two days later this isn’t suitable as they cannot lock from the outside. Looked at my suppliers and online can’t find anything that does this. Has someone come across this before? Or found one that does lock from outside. Also can I charge for the new lock as they didn’t specify and now I’m having to buy a whole new lock? Thanks I’m advance. It’s a era high security night latch.

Big Storm came through SE Michigan last night! : Locksmith


We get calls all the time to make keys for emergency releases, get in through locked side service doors.

A lot of detached garages have side doors people never have keys for, or they loose the keys for the exterior emergency release cylinder. So when power is our we get flooded with calls from people to get them inside their garages because without power their openers will not work
