Looking for an expert locksmith in Broadmeadows who can repair your old and vintage locks?
A common request we receive at “Kelly the Keyman” from our customers is that a reliable door lock or locking device, a quality product, does not get locked like it used to. When we encounter this situation, we often recommend the lock can be repaired rather than replaced. We often find that these locks are high-traffic locks that are used multiple times throughout the day, typically at a front door on a residential property or at the access of staff engaged in a business with our commercial customers. A faulty, worn out, or unreliable lock can be frustrating and annoying for the people who use it, especially the decline in the physical security aspect the lock was designed to be of major concern. A non-optimal lock can make your premises vulnerable to unauthorized entry leading to theft and damage to property and valuables contained in the property. A lock that doesn’t work can also jeopardize your break-in compensation claim.
Our customers bring these issues to our attention, our first consideration is that the lock can be repaired and given a second life which restores the security aspect of the lock and once again protects what is valuable to the customer. We find that most of the locks on the market that we come across are often repairable, there are several ways we can do this. We can source new parts to fit damaged and worn parts in the lock and restore the lock to a functional and reliable product and add years to the life of the lock.
Sometimes simply replacing the lock with a new modern lock is not always an option. The reason is that we will often come across locks that are over 30 or 40 years old and in their time were high-quality locks but unfortunately they are no longer manufactured. Since there is a theme all over the place that changes this lock to a new modern one, the version is not suitable for the customer, so we will have to find spare parts. If parts are not available, our skilled locksmiths are trained and experienced in engineering and manufacturing techniques and can often fabricate a new part to fit an old or vintage lock, bringing life and security back to a lock. With the latest products, our team of expert locksmiths in Broadmeadows, can repair locks with internal components as we have access to a wide range of brands and products, which together with our dealer networks have the ability to source parts for repairing many modern locks on the market.
