Anti-Snap Locks, What are they?

Due to the rise in lock snapping burglaries around the Romford area, you have most probably encountered the term anti snap locks at some point

As a long serving locksmith I can tell you that lock snapping is not a new phenomena and has been used by genuine locksmiths for many years. However the rise in 'how to' videos on the internet were eventually viewed by undesirables and the lock snapping craze began.

Anti snap locks resist these attacks on your upvc door and will deter the opportunist crook lurking Romford looking for a quick vehicle theft since they it will make entry considerably harder.

I can upgrade any upvc style door lock to British Standard or higher spec incorporating anti-snap technology upon request by calling me directly on 07957-624-954

Avoiding the Call Centers

Over the last year there has been a significant rise in the number of call center based locksmiths advertising in te Romford areas.

You should avoid using these call centers as more often than not you will be paying the middlemen aswell as the sub contracted locksmith, response times are never as advertised due to the call center having to ring around its locksmiths to find one near enough to attend.

I meet a lot of customers that have simply given up and called me, after waiting for hours on end for a national locksmith to arrive. They are renowned for holding customers to ransom who try and cancel in this situation.

You will never do better than using a genuine local locksmith and door repairs service from a genuine Romford based tradesman such as myself.

S.Clark, Ilford - Locksmith
"I am a volunteer and fundraising lead at Ilford and was involved in suggesting options for security enhancements that you recently implemented. I wanted to write to say that I was very impressed with your work which has certainly improved the security at our branch. I thought that your security solutions were comprehensive and the work was well-executed and very neat. As a charity, with no statutory funding, we have to raise all of our funds each year to stay open (some £20,000). Whilst we hadnít budgeted for these costs, because this work was in response to an incident, I thought that your charges were very acceptable, given the amount of work involved. I have kept your details in case I need any work doing and will ensure that I pass on your details to others. Thank you for your help."
