Locksmith Bournemouth Anti Snap Locks
You may or may not have heard about a technique used by burglars used to gain access through UPVC doors and other doors with euro locks, “lock snapping” as it’s known by thieves and police alike is the most common break in method used on UPVC doors in the UK. And the scariest part about it is the fact that the person attempting the break in doesn’t need a single piece of specialist equipment or knowledge with most of these break ins being performed with a pair of pliers and a screwdriver.
Firstly the burglar will take the pliers and use them to pull the lock cylinder away from the sleeve enough to allow them to violently snap the lock, which due to a manufacturers fault leaves the mechanism bare and the last thing to do at this stage is to manipulate your mechanism with the screw driver and open your door!
Anti snap locks remove this risk and allow you to sleep sound at night knowing that you won’t be getting your locks snapped. The way they remove the risk is by taking the vulnerable part of the lock away from the mechanism meaning when someone attempts to break the lock they won’t be able to get near your mechanism or the inside of your house for that matter.
Call us today and see if we can come and fit you with some anti snap locks or you can call and ask us about any of the other great competitively priced services that we offer. Our phone lines are open 24/7 and we’ll always be able to take your call. Don’t delay, call today!
Locksmith Bournemouth Burglar Alarms
Here at locksmith Bournemouth we think it’s all too important to have a burglar alarm in operation if you’re genuinely serious about your homes security. We’ve over 20 years experience and it always shocks us how many people have burglar alarms but never use them.
In a recent study conducted by Which? they found that just 7% of people with a burglar alarm had ever been bugled and a further one in 10 of those 7% were targeted more than once. The study also asked ex burglars the one thing that used to scare them the most and 70% of them that were asked said a burglar alarm.
So if you haven’t already got a burglar alarm, which type of system would be best for your home? Well out of the two main types of systems used in the UK, which are called stand alone systems and monitored systems and their are a few slight differences between the two. Firstly a stand alone system only uses noise and when sounded will alert any neighbors or passers by and then it’s up to them to call the police. These systems are good for people who live with close neighbors as they are much much cheaper than a monitored system. A monitored system is slightly different as you pay a contract with a security firm who then monitor activity on your alarm system and then call the police as soon as your alarm is triggered. These alarms are better for people with fewer neighbors and people who are at high risk of getting burgled.
Locksmith Bournemouth helping you understand home security
With the hassle and stress of everyday life, it’s not surprising that many residents here in Bournemouth are not sure of the extent of their security situation. They don’t know how well, or not well, protected they are and what improvements they could make. Upgrading your security can be done in a minimal fashion by using cost-effective upgrades, or via more expensive, high-tech solutions. Whatever the option may be, it’s important to know those that are available for your property.
Your locksmith Bournemouth believes it’s always important to be aware of your security situation, especially at home.

Locksmith Bournemouth British Standards And Insurance
Here at Locksmith Bournemouth we need to use locks up to British standards when replacing peoples locks, as if we don’t the home owner could find they aren’t covered by their provider. Insurance companies don’t like covering houses without a British standard lock on. You can’t tell how good a lock is just by looking at it, and that’s why The British Standards Institute test locks and put them through their paces to decide whether they are fit for general consumption and use. There are a few different types of British standard and they all relate to different types of lock and purpose they are;
- BS3621 – This relates to mortise and lip cylinder locks that require keys to lock from both sides, this standard states that the lock is good from break in unless the assailant has a key for the lock.
- BS8621 – This standard covers locks that require a key to unlock and lock them from the outside but can be unlocked without a key from the inside, maybe with a thumb tab or something of this nature. These locks are used for flats and apartment buildings and enable anyone to leave the building in an emergency
- BS10621 – This covers locks that can only be locked from the outside, can be open from the insides unless feature is removed by owner.
- All of our locks used are up to British standards, and you can phone up and ask us anything, anytime in relation to what locks we use and how much we charge when we do. All you’ve got to do is call our 24/7 phone line where you’ll be able to speak to one of our friendly advisors who’ll guide you through the call in no time.
Locksmith Bournemouth Home Security
Here at Locksmith Bournemouth, we take home security very seriously and we think you should too, we also think you should do it before it’s too late not like the majority of people we provide services to. Home security hasn’t got to cost a bomb and you could take a few steps to help secure your home on a very tight budget and massive effect. For example, most people don’t know where home security starts. We think it starts as your garden, imagine your garden as a bridge from the outside world into your home, do you want to make that bridge a pleasant walk for people who aren’t supposed to be there? Or would you rather someone who wasn’t supposed to be there being able to gather that they aren’t supposed to be there very quick? We prefer the sound of the second one, and Locksmith Bournemouth think you can achieve this with an outside light with a motion sensor, these can be picked up reasonably cheap at your local hardware store and can also be set up rather easily, try placing the light in a hard to see area but in the path a burglar would have to take when attempting to break in.
Secondly we recommend checking your front and back doors, things like the material of the door and the type of lock on the door, with this information we think the cheapest way to improve your home security would be to do some research into the most common types of break ins regarding the material of door you have and what type of lock you have on that door. This will then make it easy to guard against the type of break ins most associated with your locks rather than all break ins. For example if you had a UPVC door, you’d find that the most common type of break in is lock snapping, and then you might want to check if your door has an ant snap lock installed, and if not install one!

Without providing you with a basic economics lesson, the fact that the money is more likely to be reinvested into the local economy and local community means the benefits of helping local businesses grow is outstanding.
Although the same applies for all businesses, new and emerging local businesses need to take particular care when investing in the security for their new premises. Unlike large corporations supported by large insurers, the protection afforded to local businesses isn’t likely to be as great if something goes wrong. That’s why it’s important to ensure you have the details of a dedicated locksmith Bournemouth.

Locksmith Bournemouth Upvc Doors
Here at locksmith Bournemouth, we deal with lot’s and lot’s of different types of locks, keys, and materials of doors. In a lock out situation emotions are high and sometimes it can be hard to get a picture of what door or which type of lock we’re dealing with before we get to the lockout.

Your security and deterrents explained by locksmith Bournemouth
When people think of their locksmith Bournemouth, they may think of any member of the friendly security team that regularly assists people in the local area and surrounding neighbourhoods with fresh installations, lock maintenance and emergency lockout services. However, your locksmith Bournemouth is a full security professional. This means our products and services offered extend far beyond simple locking mechanisms. With security the aim of the game, we are always on hand to provide helpful advice for any concerned citizen looking at ways to upgrade their home security.
One of the most cost effective ways this can be done is be investing in effective deterrents to ward off any possible outside intruders. Of course, there’s a variety of different approaches you may take and what may be right for you may well depend on your own personal preference as well as what your is suitable.
Of course, nothing truly beats the deadlock, but your locksmith Bournemouth will assume, if you have anything other than a UPVC door, that this will be installed as a given. By way of deterrence, burglars are invariably put off by anything that would draw attention to their presence, be that light or noise. Many people have debated the helpfulness of a dog and of course your locksmith Bournemouth would never recommend purchasing one simply for security! However, our pups are great to altering us and others that people are at your property either by barking or going mad with excitement. If you don’t have a dog, it’s worth considering sensor activated barking dog alarms. These are perfect for if you’re going away from your property for a while too! However, the favourite recommendation of your locksmith Bournemouth is that of security lights at the front of your property. Ensuring your property is well lit means your neighbours and yourself can easily spot anyone who shouldn’t be there. For the discussion on the effectiveness of various deterrents, your local locksmith Bournemouth can discuss such matters on the phone or arrange a site visit to recommend an appropriate course of action.
Understanding your home security with locksmith Bournemouth
Your locksmith Bournemouth is often surprised at the security industry. Despite being a key feature of homes and businesses alike, it seems to be the case that not many people are particularly well informed about their security. Of course, you wouldn’t be expected to be an expert, otherwise locksmiths wouldn’t exist! However, having a basic understanding of the security at your property allows you to better protect your home and also, should anything go wrong, allow you to provide an accurate description to a highly-trained locksmith Bournemouth who can provide you with an accurate quote for the works before assisting you.
As a basic overview, it is important to firstly know what type of door you have as this will determine the possible locking mechanisms you may have. If you have a wooden door, you door is likely to have one or a combination of a nightlatch lock – commonly referred to as a Yale lock – and a mortise lock, which is the one with a traditional keyhole shape. If you have a UPVC door, the lock is a eurocylinder and the internal locking mechanism is simply referred to as a multipoint locking mechanism.
Once you have understood this you can begin to diagnose any problems with your security quickly and efficiently. This will not only help you personally protect your property, but when you need the professional help of an expert locksmith Bournemouth, you can receive an accurate quote meaning no surprises! For example, if you find that on your UPVC door your key can only enter part way or can enter completely but cannot turn, then it is likely there is a problem with the eurocylinder lock itself and this needs to be replaced. If you find that the key can enter but is spinning in the barrel, then this is more symptomatic of a problem with your internal multipoint locking mechanism. Your locksmith Bournemouth doesn’t expect you to be a trained locksmith, but being able to understand your own security makes your life easier.
Security tips for new homeowners
One of the best days in most people’s lives is when they are able to make the successful leap from tenant to homeowner. It’s even better when you consider that you have been able to do such a remarkable step in your life in such a wonderful town. However, with great power (of home ownership) comes great responsibility. No longer can you rely on your landlord, the buck stops with you. So what should you do when you move home for the first time?
One thing you should do every time you move home is change the locks. Any respected locksmith Bournemouth will recommend this as a good course of practice. Such advice is not meant to scare you, but the reality remains that you cannot be sure of who still may have access to the property. Who knows just how long ago the locks were last changed? For new homeowners, your locksmith Bournemouth offers a helpful discount to get you on the way, no matter how many locks you require changing.
The next most important step is to conduct a detailed security inspection of your new home. You may have already done this when considering to buy the property, but now is when things get serious. The best way to do this is to simply think like a burglar. Look at the outside of your property and think what would make it easy for you to get in.
If there are things that you can use to climb, make sure they are securely locked away. If there’s a fence near your property, try to ensure it has a pretty bush climbing up it. Not only does this look aesthetically pleasing for when you have friends over, but this effective gardening adds another layer of security to your property by making that fence difficult to climb.
Check the locks too. If any locks have been incorrectly installed then these need to be fixed immediately by a trained locksmith Bournemouth. Should you have any concerns, a member of our friendly team can be at your property quickly to carry out an effective home security survey to assess any weaknesses which can be subsequently addressed.
What other locksmith services do locksmith Bournemouth provide?
Everyone understands the importance of keeping their property safe. After all, coming home to find someone has violated an extension of your person is one of the worst things anyone can live through in their life. It’s a horrible feeling to think someone could cause such pain to you with no recourse. That’s why the people of Bournemouth rely on an expert locksmith service to provide professional care and security to properties in the locality and prevent such atrocities from occurring. However, there are more things that can be done without the aid of a locksmith on call 24/7.
Installing a safe is now no longer limited to business premises. It is expected that a safe should be found at a commercial property as it’s likely to contain important documents and/or large sums of money if it is a trading company taking in a daily revenue. This locksmith Bournemouth fully recommends safe installations for homes too. Your professional locksmith Bournemouth is able to supply, install and maintain a large variety of different safes provided by different manufacturers with different specifications to match up with your needs and your budget. If your safe needs servicing or emergency access, your locksmith Bournemouth has a team of fully trained staff available to take your call and remedy the problem 24/7, no matter when trouble strikes. A safe installation is recommended as way to store important documents and valuables when out of the property for an extended period of time. Affordability is at the heart of all our installations and we believe taking precautions is important in this time of increased home disturbances.
Your locksmith Bournemouth does not simply help with security installations. We understand that sometimes after a lock installation, the number of keys that come with the lock may not be sufficient. That’s why we offer an additional key cutting service by carrying the necessary equipment with us when completing installations. For a small price, we can duplicate your keys in minutes and have your property fully secured and prepared.
How can I secure my home whilst on holiday?
Extra security measures is needed before you go on that well deserved holiday. Even more applicable if you are not usually giving much thought to your home security. One of the main risks for a house out there. Is simply being unoccupied.
More burglaries and thefts happen during the holiday season. You might even know someone who has become a victim of the upsurge. How can you then secure your home whilst away, you ask. The professionals here give some tips on appropriate actions to take before leave home.
The first thing to do to secure your home whilst on holiday is to get a burglar alarm installed. It doesn’t have to be the fanciest or most expensive thing out there. Just something that will work an excellent deterrent. Something that will alert the neighbours if any activity is sensed at your property.
An armed home alarm system together with nice and active neighbours. Who will take action knowing you are away on holiday if the alarm is triggered is highly valuable. To keep your home secure whilst you are on holiday.
Remember to halt any subscriptions that you have coming to your home. Or ask someone to collect the post and change the curtains from day to day. What you are aiming for is for your house to look as if it is occupied. There are other items which can aid you with this such as timer lights and fake TV lights.
Lastly, to secure your home whilst on holiday. Make sure that you only tell your trusted friends and family that you are going away. Advertising the dates you are going to be away on social media for example. Is a bad idea. Although you may want to make your friends jealous of your wonderful holiday. It is also letting strangers know when you will be out of the house.

Professional mortise lock installations recommended by your locksmith Bournemouth
For whatever reason, your locksmith Bournemouth, along with others, has noticed that there has been a rise in criminal activity over the past few years. What is therefore disheartening as that it appears that there are still some people who do not take their home security seriously. It may be the case that some people may feel they are priced out of security upgrades. However, your locksmith Bournemouth begs to differ and with competitive quotes for all works, we believe our long-standing customers would testify that improving your security doesn’t have to be expensive when affordable prices are on offer.
With that in mind, your locksmith believes everyone should have a mortise lock on their front door if they have a wooden door. If you are unsure as to what this is, a wooden door is likely to have one of, or a combination of, the following two locks: a cylinder rim lock (often a Yale lock) or a mortise lock. The former is usually a nightlatch lock which locks the door behind you automatically without the use of a key. The latter is the more traditional keyhole shape which is instantly recognisable to most people.
Mortise locks are usually either deadlocks or sash locks. The former comprise a simple keyhole and bolt. When the key is turned, the bolt locks across into the door frame. A sash lock is similar but contains a latch and handles too. That means that when you open the door, not only must the bolt be removed from the door frame, the handles must be turned to remove the latch as well. It is not as simple as one of them provides more security. It may well be that one is more suitable for your door than the other. Whatever the case may be, a local locksmith Bournemouth can help you determine the appropriate installation with a few questions over the phone.
Locksmith Bournemouth Different Types Of Lock
Here at locksmith Bournemouth we’ve got over 20 years experience dealing with all sorts of locks and doors, but none of these types of locks do we encounter more than the three types of lock we’re about to disect for you now, and those are;
- Euro cylinder – A euro cylinder is a common lock found on most UPVC doors, either keys to lock them from both sides or a key on the one side and a thumb tab on the other. These are the cheapest locks and the easiest to break of the locks we carry in stock and the replacement of these locks is very quick. The keys to these locks are usually opened by a small flat key.
- Mortise Locks – Mortise locks are are a bit harder to drill through but are found on wooden doors and older properties. These locks are the safest locks when it comes to fighting against break ins. The standard states that you can’t break into these locks with a key. They are usually opened by a longer L shaped sort of key.These take longest to drill through and are the most expensive type of lock that we stock.
- Night Latches – Night latches are locks that take a key on the one side and a thumb tab on the other side, and are widely used as second locks for front doors and are used on apartment and flat buildings as they enable anyone to leave a property in an emergency. Sometimes these locks can be broken into by a technique by carding but sometimes this cannot be achieved and the lock will have to be drilled.
All of the locks used by us are up to the relevant British standards meaning if we come and replace your locks you won’t have to worry about whether your insurance still covers you, you can call us any time and ask us about the locks we use and what features they have, our trained office staff will be happy to take your call.

Simple, easy and inexpensive security upgrades from a professional locksmith Bournemouth
Unfortunately, it is a harsh truth of life that we now have to take better care of our properties.

Thankfully, improving your home security doesn’t have to be expensive if you use your friendly, local locksmith Bournemouth.

This is effectively a protective casing for the cylinder and prevents anyone from being able to easily remove the cylinder from the door and gain entry. Additionally, you should ensure that your door frame has an effective strike plate fitted. This covers the holes in which your locking mechanism secures into and effectively reinforces the door frame surrounding the lock. This means it’s even harder for any unwanted criminals to try and break in. If your property needs an even simpler addition, you should consider investing in a ‘Neighbourhood Watch’ sticker. We always recommend putting one of these in your window, especially if you live in a neighbourhood with a higher rate of criminal activity. These are easy to spot from a distance and have been prover to deter criminal activity.
It may come as a surprise, but sliding patio doors are particularly vulnerable to attacks. The nature of these doors makes it possible for criminals to simply get under the door frame and lift them out the sliding rails in which they sit. This shouldn’t be possible and is why we always carry anti-lift patio locks in our vans at all times. If not addressed with adequate protection, sliding patio doors can be a severe weakness for any property. The anti-lift patio lock is a keyless locking system that prevents the door from being lifted up and pulled out. In fact, the more upward pressure that is exerted on such a lock, the tighter the locking engagement becomes. Protecting your home doesn’t have to be expensive and all the aforementioned items can be installed quickly and successfully by a highly-trained locksmith Bournemouth.

Effective home security doesn’t have to be expensive with an expert locksmith Bournemouth
Reports across the UK have highlighted that the country is currently on the receiving end of a crime rate crisis. This news has got across to the people of Bournemouth and it is not surprising to learn that your local Bournemouth locksmith has calls everyday from customers concerned about the reports. As our expert lock engineers regularly receive such calls, we thought the best approach would be to outline some ways anyone can take to protect their home.
The place where we live with our family and keep our belongings deserves the best protection. However, we don’t believe that this should be expensive and all of the suggestions below are cost-effective to ensure you don’t end up spending more than is reasonably necessary on securing your home.
UPVC doors appear to provide a sophisticated layer of protection against unwanted visitors from the outside. After all, the 5-point lever locking mechanism is an intricate piece of equipment used to lock the door. However, a door is only as secure as the parts used to secure it. Unfortunately, a number of UPVC doors come with poor quality euro cylinders upon installation which means they can easily be broken into, often in under fifteen seconds with the correct equipment. For a small price, our customers can swap such barrels for a 3 Star British Standard anti-snap lock. These are always reasonably priced and make it difficult for anyone to target your property as the subject-matter of criminal activity.
The most secure doors tend to have both a Yale lock and a mortise lock. If your door doesn’t have the latter, then make sure you call an expert Bournemouth locksmith today to arrange an installation at a time convenient for you to ensure your property is kept protected. While two locks is better than one, it doesn’t mean it’s completely impenetrable. One excellent way of adding an additional layer of securing is to install an anti-thrust plate. These run down the side of the door in the gap between the door and the door frame to ensure that no one could put any tools and equipment down the side which would help them pry open then lock.

Hi-tech security and deterrent systems installed by a professional Bournemouth locksmith
Security for both commercial and domestic properties has moved far beyond simple lock and key systems. Now many properties require either a hi-tech security installation to act as an extra layer of security, or as a first layer of deterrence to criminals. This is especially important for properties that are left unattended for long periods of time and even more so those which are further away from the dazzling lights of the town centre. Of course hi-tech security in this instance could be needed for a number of reasons. Maybe your place of business is located away from the main high street? Or perhaps you are out of the country a lot on business? Either way, you need to be sure you have a professional team you can discuss your security options with.

Locksmith Bournemouth Customer Service
We personally think that one of the most important things to consider when thinking about setting up/ maintaining a business is the customer service, unlike our personal lives it’s often what the general public think about your business rather than what you think about it that makes a difference. That’s why your local locksmith Bournemouth concentrates so hard on maintaining great customer service and it’s helped us to continue to do business over the last 20 years. We think it’s shocking the amount of supposedly reputable companies who will have a few pages worth of jargon and buzzwords about customer service on their websites then proceed to continually mistreat customers time and time again, the fact that some of these businesses are still open baffles us.
But unlike the rest we‘re not here to raise ourselves onto a pedestal by bad mouthing other companies, or to give you a load of jargon and buzzwords just to go back on all of that when you go to do business with us, oh no. We believe customer service and customer relations are best achieved and maintained through a good level of communication, we achieve this by running a 24/7 365 day a year phone line where customers are encouraged
to call and pick our brains about any services we advertise and maybe to ask about some that we haven’t.
No questions are stupid and we take every call we get and with no long automated robots on our lines (sorry if you’re an automated robot) allowing our customers easily able to achieve an open dialogue with us this allows us to pander to specific needs of our customers where appropriate.

The right CCTV system for you with locksmith Bournemouth experts
If you’re looking to improve your home or business’ security even more, why not consider a CCTV system? These are great deterrents against crime and, in the case that a crime occurs, are incredibly helpful in helping the police find the perpetrators and get your stolen property back to you. Locksmith Bournemouth highly recommend you get a CCTV system as they are truly some of the most valuable security updates you can make to any property. There are many types of CCTV system, so which is best for you? There’s wired and wireless, internal and external, digital – the possibilities are extensive. Locksmith Bournemouth have a quick guide to these, but as each case is individual we will assess your property in person to find the best for you.
Wired security cameras have a lot of benefits – they face no interference from nearby devices, they are more stable for data transmission and they are good for large properties. However they are not portable and require drilling holes into the walls of your home. Wireless cameras on the other hand can be moved around with ease, but may face interference from your home WiFi devices and may run out of battery if you forget to replace them. In general, if possible we suggest wired cameras as they are more stable, but wireless cameras are also very effective.
Most properties benefit from an outdoors CCTV system as you can see who is approaching, but some will also benefit from indoors CCTV. We generally suggest indoors systems for businesses only, but have installed indoors security for homes as well. If you have some very expensive or meaningful possessions you may want this extra level of security. For more information and bespoke CCTV advice for your property, call our experts now, and make your home more secure today!
Commercial Security Solutions with ABA Locksmith Bournemouth
When it comes to a commercial property, the security considerations are different to those of a residential building. The likelihood is that you are going to have expensive equipment or merchandise on site, and you’ll definitely want round-the-clock security that works effectively. The good news is that all your needs can be provided for by ABA Locksmith Bournemouth today!
Every property is different and has its own needs, so why not book in a Security Survey with one of our talented locksmith Bournemouth team? This service allows them to offer bespoke advice on-location at your business, with security solutions tailored to your requirements. Some likely advice they will give is as follows. All commercial properties would benefit from a full CCTV and alarm system, so in the event of a potential burglary thieves can be stopped before they take anything and can be found and charged for attempting to break in. A CCTV system also lets you locate people scoping out the business for a future robbery, and protects from thieves stealing from your shelves during open hours. These act as a great deterrent and are a locksmith Bournemouth absolute must-have.
We also suggest having security grilles and shutters installed in properties with glass fronts, as these are easy to break into. A shutter means your storefront can look the same as always during the day, but will be safe and sound at night. Locksmith Bournemouth are able to provide great deals on safes and security boxes, where you can store any cash and valuable documents pertaining to your business. We can install locks onto any door and window in the property, and can even help you with a master key system so certain staff have more access to important rooms (for example, the office or cash room) than others. For all commercial security considerations, call our team today.
ABA Locksmith Bournemouth – Home Security starts in the garden!
When thinking of how to keep your home secure, you should look at it through the eyes of a thief. The first thing a thief sees is the outside of your house and so making this look secure should be your top priority. And while homeowners often think about their alarm systems and such, one underutilised section of the home that can be used to improve home security is the garden. ABA Locksmith Bournemouth have some great tips on how to use your garden to the best of its abilities.
Installing motion lights will help keep trouble away as a burglar wants to remain unseen and hidden. If they accidentally flip a light they will often flee the property, as the risks outweigh the rewards. Another similar idea is to have gravel paths and driveways, as this means that anyone approaching will have to make noise to get to your home itself, which can again alert you to the situation and may spook the robber. Locksmith Bournemouth favourite recommendation is, however, to use your plants to your advantage! You can keep your garden both beautiful and functional by choosing the right plants at the right times of the year. One example of this is rose bushes – these are common and decidedly English flowers that come in a variety of colours to suit your landscape, but their sharp thorns act as a great deterrent against anyone who would try to sneak through your garden. A great place to put these is under any windows, as they will make that a much harder place for anyone to break in and enter your property, and you will be even more protected. So to keep your home safe, remember that ABA Locksmith Bournemouth suggests starting with your garden!
