Have the lock replaced as soon as possible

If you have really lost your keys and do not know where they have gone, it is advisable to have the lock or cylinder replaced. The lock may have already been damaged after the locksmith has opened the door for you, but for security and your own peace of mind it can't hurt to have a new lock or profile cylinder in your door so that no one can misuse your old keys.

This also applies to the other keys on the lost key ring, so have the lock or profile cylinder of the back door, garage or storage room and the like replaced if necessary.

Calling in an experienced locksmith is a requirement to keep the damage as limited as possible, because you do not want your lock to be forced by a burglar or someone else who does not have the right to enter your home.

Installing new locks in your home

Especially if you live in an old house, it is usually not a bad idea to look into the possibilities of installing new locks in your home. The so-called multi-point lock is one of the many possible choices in that regard. This type of lock is especially interesting because it locks your door in different places and therefore extra safe. As a result, burglars can't just force one lock to get into your home, but they have to take into account different anchorages. Of course, there are also other types of locks on the market that can help secure your home in an efficient way.

Securing existing locks

If you do not immediately feel like replacing the existing locks in your house, you can also choose to better secure the current locks. In that regard, it is always interesting to ask the advice of your locksmith. In certain cases, the cost price will be so close to a new lock that it is often more interesting to opt for this option. In addition, the security locks according to the new standard are also a lot safer than the classic locks from the past. In addition to placing and replacing locks, we can also repair damage, where necessary. When in doubt, do not hesitate to ask for the advice of your locksmith from The Hague.

Burglary prevention can now be seen as a necessary evil. It often costs a lot of money, but is necessary because the burglary figures in the Netherlands are particularly alarming. Fortunately, burglary prevention can be achieved in various ways today. For example, you can arrange to have your locks replaced or better secured, but you can also use one of the many contemporary alarm systems. All these different things can contribute to the security of your home and therefore also to the feeling of safety that you yourself get as a resident. Locksmith NK is happy to tell you more about the possibilities in the field of burglary prevention.

Professional burglary prevention throughout the Netherlands

You can find numerous professionals spread throughout the Netherlands who can assist you in securing your home without any problems. In the first instance, think of the locksmiths who can provide your home with the most recent and best secured locks on the market. Burglary prevention always starts with checking the locking of your home. If it does not meet the current standard, you can protect your house as well as you can, you will always run the risk of encountering a possible burglary.

Deter or catch burglars

A thorough burglary prevention can not only ensure that burglars are deterred, it is also much easier to catch them in the act. In order to achieve this, it is always important to think carefully about the alarm systems that you are going to install. For example, a single system in a centrally located room is not enough. By definition, you must have a room-covering alarm system and it is also recommended to provide windows and doors with a so-called reed contact switch. These switches detect when the door or window is opened and can immediately notify you

When damage has occurred as a result of a burglary, it is often very important for the owners of the house in question to have the damage repaired as soon as possible. This is necessary to restore a certain sense of security, but the temporary lack of, for example, a functioning lock also increases the risk of possible new burglaries. Repairing burglary damage in the short term is therefore very important. Before we can speak of repair work, it is of course important that the burglary damage is determined exactly. Based on these findings, a quote can be drawn up and an indication can be given of the cost price that you should take into account.

Repairing damage to doors and frames

The first damage that is usually reported is damage to doors and frames. Fortunately, this damage can be repaired in a relatively simple way. The damage to doors and frames usually mainly relates to the space around the lock. The damage can ensure that the door can no longer be opened with your key. In that case, we will have to repair or replace the lock so that we can open your door. Please note, the existing lock itself is often forced, so that you also have to take into account a certain cost in that area. In any case, repairing burglary damage to doors and frames is the first point you will want to pay attention to.

Repairing glass damage

Repairing damage that was done to glass is a little less obvious. After all, a number of things must first be thoroughly examined by the repairer. First of all, there is, for example, the width of the cavity, but in addition, the type of glass that can be found in the window or door must also be considered. For example, many people use specially protected glass. As soon as these determinations have been made, repair of the glass damage caused can be started.

Advantages locksmith in Sleen

Replacing old locks for safety

Replacing a lock is an easy process that can be done directly by our local locksmith Sleen. If the lock is the same size in all sizes, it can be handled in less than half an hour. So, when you are looking for a lock change in your area, contact the best locksmith NK in Sleen.

Some lock replacements take longer

Situations where it takes longer than {half an hour|30 minutes| can last is when we renew the locks on wooden doors. Typically, when replacing old locks, they are smaller than the lock we are replacing them with. Contemporary locks that meet the current Dutch standard are deeper, higher and wider. An advanced lock has better security features, making them more sturdy.

So in order for the high security lock to fit, we need to remove more wood from the door so that the new lock fits. We also need to chisel more wood out of the frame to properly install the heftier notch. This extra work costs extra time.

6 reasons to change locks

What are the reasons for changing a lock on a front door or a back door? Locksmith NK has come across six common reasons during our years of experience, why people change locks. 

A defective lock is one of the most common reasons when you need a new lock. Usually, in the event of a defective lock, this involves replacing the lock of the front door. This is because the front door lock is the most used. Like most things in life, items with mechanical parts will wear out. Pieces usually wear out when the grease in the lock is gone. Replacing locks because the oil has run out is not done every year. We, as an experienced locksmith company, have seen locks of 20 years or older last.

If a lock fails within a year, that indicates that there are other causes. The main problem is that the door is out of alignment, putting undue pressure on the lock. Doors typically fall out of alignment in extreme weather, misuse, and by children hanging from door handles. Or by persons who use the latch as an aid to get into the house or flat. Please remember that your house locks are your first line of defense against burglary!

Some locks on homes and commercial buildings just look old and tired and have usually been repainted repeatedly. Sometimes you can just look at a lock and think it needs updating. Especially night locks on wooden doors. Old night locks tend to be small and can be easily bypassed by a burglar. In addition, you will have to deal with metal fatigue with old locks, which makes the lock less secure.

Old locks no longer meet the anti-burglary standards. If you want to improve the security of your home, it may be better to replace your old lock with a new cylinder lock, multi-point lock, rim lock with day and dead bolt or a pin lock. Replacing old locks is therefore not only because they no longer function properly, but also for your own safety at home. If you have old locks, you are more susceptible to a break-in attempt. Ask locksmith Sleen for advice on replacing old locks.

When taking out or renewing your home insurance, the insurance agent will ask you various questions about the security of your apartment. And especially about your locks. They insist on a recognized and tested cylinder lock or pin lock for wooden doors. When your wooden door locks don't have this, they insist that you change the locks to meet their requirements. Changing a lock is the main job of a locksmith. By meeting the standard set by your insurance company, you also give yourself peace of mind.

For homes that have a PVC door, a lock cylinder is your security. Unfortunately, the euro cylinder is one of the most effortless locks to crack, open or bypass. For your own peace of mind, look at the lock, in and around the place where you insert the key. Under the keyhole you should see the SKG quality mark. If so, then you have a well-secured lock. If not, then you need a lock replacement, or specifically a replacement of a PVC door lock.

What is a good lock? The Gevelbouw Quality Foundation (SKG) tests locks for durability and strength, among other things. They give the locks stars, which vary from 1 to 3. With 3 stars indicating that a lock is the most secure. The more stars, the more secure the lock is.

All expert locksmiths at Locksmith NK carry door locks that meet the requirements of your home insurance. 
So that a lock change on the first visit can be performed at any time of the day.

As soon as you move into a new home, think about your safety. Ask yourself, who has the keys to my house? If you're honest with yourself, you can't be sure who will or won't have a set of keys to your new dream home. The solution is simple, change the locks. When you replace locks, you receive a new set of keys, giving you complete control over who has access to your home.

Your local independent locksmith in Sleen can assist you with changing locks, improving your security!

If your bag is lost or stolen, it is imperative that you have the front and back doors of your home replaced with new locks. Most people keep a set of their keys in their purse, along with other items that a burglar can use to identify your home. Your locks are useless if someone has a key. If you find yourself in this situation, please contact locksmith Sleen immediately and ask for our emergency service to replace locks.

For whatever reason you need to change your locks, it's worth asking your local locksmith Sleen if he can set your locks to the same key. If you have locks with the same key, you can open all locks with one key. The advantage of this is that you significantly reduce the number of keys, except for your car key. Especially if you have more than two exterior doors.

However, there is also a disadvantage of having one key for your locks. If you need a lock replacement, then you have to replace all locks. Because they use the same key. This is the case if, for example, you have lost your keys or have been stolen.

Key broken off in lock, call locksmith Sleen

Is your key broken in the lock? That is very annoying. Especially when you're already late for work and trying to get everything in order quickly. With your hands full you quickly put the key in the lock of your front door and turn it around. You just don't feel that fluid movement. Instead, you hear a cracking sound and when you look down you realize that your key is broken off in the lock. What a way to start the day. Having a key break off inside the lock is an annoying and troublesome problem.

FAQ

There are a few things that can cause this problem, namely:

  • Standard keys are made of relatively soft metals, such as brass and nickel.
  • The key has been damaged by wear and tear over time.
  • The lock itself is not sufficiently lubricated or is jammed.

Regardless of the circumstances behind the broken key in the lock - be it a house lock, a business lock or a car lock - it must be dealt with immediately. The broken key can actually cause damage to the lock.

  • If the key breaks in the lock before the door is closed, you can no longer lock the door. This puts your home, car or office at a greater risk of burglary.
  • If the key breaks in the lock after you close the door, you may not be able to open the door until the problem is resolved.

If a key has broken off inside the lock and you notice that part of it is sticking out of the lock, you can count yourself lucky. If this is the situation, you may be able to extract the broken piece of key that is still in the lock by simply squeezing it between your fingers and pulling it out. If you can't get hold of the piece left in the keyhole, it's time to call locksmith Sleen.

 

You may think that you can easily get that small piece of key sticking out with a pair of pliers or a strong magnet, but that is usually. When no part of the key is protruding from the lock, there is little chance that you can remove it yourself. Especially if you don't want to damage the lock. It is also possible to use a flat head screwdriver that is small enough to fit in the keyhole. By inserting it into the lock, you can try to lift or loosen the key's placement until a piece of the key comes out of the lock.

 

At that point you should be able to pull out the broken piece with a pair of pliers or a strong magnet. But here too it is possible to cause further lock damage by forcing tools into the lock. It is better to get good help from a professional locksmith in Sleen. So call your trusted locksmith Sleen.

There are a number of things you can do to prevent a key from being broken in the lock.

 

  1. Lubricating locks

Typically, keys break off inside locks because the lock is not properly maintained. A silicone-based lubricant should be injected into the keyhole approximately every six months. Or as soon as you notice a creaking or excess friction when you lock the door.

 

  1. Replace keys

Keys are subject to wear and are also widely used. So when you notice that your keys are starting to wear out, it's time to get a copy and get rid of the old one. Or exchange your current key for one of the many spare keys you have in your closet. Place the old key separately, so that you no longer use it and there is therefore no chance that the key is broken in the lock.
