Rated the Best Locksmith Wakefield

When you find yourself in a situation where you need a locksmith in Wakefield, you’re sure to want a service that is both high quality and budget friendly. At Wakefield Lock and Key Centre, we offer a round the clock service so that you can get the support you need whenever you need us.

As a quality locksmith, we offer emergency callouts and take pride in being able to offer a one-hour call out service when you need us the most. The great thing about supporting a locally run locksmith is that you get a quicker response and can support a local business who invests in the local area.

Why You Need to Think About Home Security

The most common method of break-in is through the cylinder on uPVC doors. Upgrade your locks to the latest snap safe high security cylinders!

Sadly, many of our clients find that they call us out in an emergency because they did not take the time to arrange adequate security before falling victim to a break in. Rather than experiencing this first hand, why not think about security now so that you can feel confident that your property will remain secure?

It’s a sad fact that many areas are experiencing a rise in theft and vandalism, with many home and business owners unprepared for such anti social behaviour. When you come to Wakefield Lock and Key Centre, we will help you to plan a security system that covers everything you need and then install it for you professionally and efficiently.

We even offer a free window and door checking service so that you can find out if your home security meets the standards set out by most insurance companies. If it doesn’t, we will provide you with a no-obligation quote to get it sorted and leave you to decide whether you want to proceed – getting a free check by an expert service just makes sense!

  • Locked out? We’ll be with you in 60 minutes!
  • We can change all uPVC Cylinder and Wooden Mortice locks
  • We repair broken uPVC door mechanisms
  • We upgrade locks to high security cylinders

Very happy with the service I received! Was with me in less than an hour - which was a blessing because I had been locked out for 2 days and I finally admitted defeat that my keys were a goner! Price was great (less than I expected to be honest) and great friendly guy that came. Would recommend to anyone.

We recently had to call this company out to the lock on our back door which would not lock. They gave us an estimated time to get a fitter to us. The fitter let us know when he was on his way to us and he arrived just before the expected time. The lock was removed and replaced very quickly. Excellent service.

Visited Wakefield Lock and Key today and the service technician called Reece, was brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble in helping the customer who was being served before me and he was polite in asking if I minded waiting a couple of minutes whilst he sorted the other customer's keys. It was well worth the wait as the advice he then gave to me was spot on - customer care at its best. Would certainly recommend this firm. Excellent!!

My sliding Upvc door lock mechanism broke meaning I was unable to open the doors. Ash from Wakefield Lock and Key Centre arrived in less than an hour, and performed a temporary repair to get the door working again. A couple of days later he came back with a new mechanism to replace the broken one. The price of the work was very competitive, and the work was done to a high standard. Can't fault the great service and value.

I cannot recommend this company enough. Reece and the rest of the team there were ever so helpful. I needed to replace an old lock, Reece rang around suppliers and managed to find an exact replacement.This is the kind of five star service that you only get from brilliant local businesses, the big box DIY stores have neither the specific knowledge or time to provide such a service.Whatever your lock needs maybe use these guys. Fantastic.
