For over 15 years, DK Locksmiths have been the leading locksmith company in West London. Based in Greenford, Middlesex we offer various services in the local area. We are best known for our locksmith services which include: emergency locksmith / 24-hour locksmith services for both residential and commercial properties as well as planned lock refitting and security upgrades. However, we also provide burglary repair services which include door repair and / or replacement services, window repairs and boarding-up services.
Most the call-outs we receive are for emergency locksmith services, following a break-in or damage to locks, sometimes people locking themselves out of properties, or even losing their keys and needing to get inside their home or business. In these instances, we offer a ‘20-minute guarantee service’ 24 hours a day. That means, if we can – we will reach you within 20 minutes if you live in the boroughs of West London, namely Hillingdon, Hounslow, Ealing, Harrow, Brent, Hammersmith, Kensington or Richmond. If we can reach you within 20 minutes, we will confirm this on the phone to you before you accept the callout and fee we quote. We do not have any hidden fees either, the price we quote on the callout, is the price you pay, the only exception to this is if the work required changes in scope to what has been described.
We have and continue to provide an honest, straight-forward London locksmith service in the local area, and this is evident in the CRB Checked we have on leading review websites such as Check-a-trade and rated people. Please do take a look at these for yourself.
Although you can rely on our lock and key services following a burglary, prevention is much better than the cure. However, securing a property is one of those things people think about, but never get around to on their to-do lists! Burglary rates in London continue to increase year on year. Due to the recent budget cuts imposed on the Metropolitan Police as well as other Police forces across the UK, a record number crimes across the UK are being ‘screened-out’ at the early stage of investigations due to the lack of evidence. A recent article published in the Times under the Freedom of Information Act shows screening out increased from 361,180 in 2010 to 597,318 in 2016. Almost double the number. Of these, over half of them are burglary related, 256,366 were burglary related in 2014, from a total of 431,869 screened out in the same year. If this trend continues, the chance of a victim of burglary being able to recover their treasured possessions that insurance cannot replace becomes slimmer and slimmer by the year.
Even where people have home or contents insurance in-place. Many people do not realise that insurance companies will not pay out if their external locks are not up to the British Standard. If you have a wooden external door, the minimum requirement for insurance companies is to have a 5-lever lock. Anything less than this, and it is very unlikely that your insurance company will pay out, even though they were happy enough to take your annual payment. Appalling as that is – it is a fact. DK Locksmiths only use the best quality 5 lever locks, which are manufactured by Chubb. ERA, Assec and Yale also make excellent 5 lever locks.
People that have a uPVC door, which has the 7-lever locking function, think that this is much safer than a wooden door. However, few people realise how easily these doors can also be broken into by a burglar with the know-how and a basic power drill. To secure your uPVC door, you need a Euro Cylinder Lock, this makes it significantly harder for any try-hard burglar to gain access to your property. The best Euro Cylinder Lock on the market is manufactured by Yale. Their 6-pin cylinder lock is anti-snap, anti-pick and anti-drill. Any burglar will spend hours trying to get in, to no avail if your uPVC door is secured with this. Again, DK Locksmiths can install these for you or find bespoke solutions for your property once we assess your properties security, and we order these in from across Europe and the world.
External doors aren’t the only access points for burglars, windows are a prime target, and we recommend fitting sash jammers to all double-glazing windows in your properties. For internal doors, we also recommend fitting 3 lever sash locks for additional security. Even if a burglar gains access to your property, adding additional deterrents can make a big difference. Burglars are in a race against the clock once they gain access to your property, and anything that causes them to lose time is a significant barrier for them, most will give up after encountering two 3-lever sash lock internal door deterrents.
