We understand that these situations can be incredibly stressful and so we promise to arrive at the time given when you contact us and provide high quality work with minimal fuss or noise.

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

Had an old multipoint door lock that wouldn’t work, took it through to Wakefield to ask if they could identify and source a new one,(the old lock was over 20yrs old).The Assistant James who checked it for me was very thorough and polite and double checked it was the correct lock and also asked me if I would like it cutting to the correct size.From my experience I would not hesitate to recommend Wakefield Lock and Key Centre and would definitely use their services again.

Terry came out promptly to fix our front door - the door wouldn’t open - and kept me posted on arrival time beforehand. I was given a good idea of the likely cost when I initially called and he actually came in a bit under this, even though he also took the trouble to do a quick fix on my other door, which was sticking. Very friendly chap and very efficient in his work. Will definitely call these guys again for any future lock issues.

I have been a locksmith now for almost 20 years and even though my day to day work is now more joinery based, when I do have to dip my toes back into the job, the guys here at Wakefield Lock and Key always come up trumps. Even if they haven't got what you need there and then, they usually get it in next day or, as has happened on many occasion, sort you out with a solution to adapt or work around using what they have got. As I say, I'm not a regular customer but I don't ever go anywhere else for my supplies. I'm even considering signing up for one of their refresher courses just to brush up.Great service, great guys and excellent prices. Highly recommended
