Lock Repairs: Which Types of Locks Do You Fix?

Thanks to our extensive locksmith knowledge and experience, there isn’t a lock we can’t fix! Discover the types of locks we repair across Wakefield below.

uPVC Door Lock Repair

uPVC Door Repairs in Wakefield

One of the most common types of locks we’re called out to repair are uPVC door locks. They’re a popular choice thanks to their aesthetic and the level of security they provide; unfortunately, the mechanisms within the centre of the gearbox have a tendency of crumbling apart over time. Regular use of the door handle and general wear and tear can affect the spindle inside, causing the whole lock to break. This can also occur when we experience severe temperatures or purely down to the age of the lock itself.

Our locksmiths will attend your Wakefield property swiftly, and get straight to work on diagnosing the issue at hand. We keep our vans stocked with common parts and replacement locks to help us repair your uPVC door locks as quickly as possible. 

Repairing your broken uPVC door lock is a cheaper option than replacing the full door, so we’ll always do our best to repair the lock first. As well as repairing or replacing your uPVC look, we’ll also fit an anti-snap cylinder to help increase the security of your Wakefield property!

Composite Door Lock Repairs in Wakefield

Lock Repairs for Composite Doors

Composite doors are an incredibly popular choice in homes across Wakefield, and yet despite their security benefits, they will still fall victim to broken or damaged locks from time to time. The locks inside of composite doors are incredibly similar to those found in uPVC doors and so they often suffer from the same issues, including general wear and tear of parts, damaged handles, and more.

If you’ve discovered that the lock on your composite door is damaged, get in touch with us today by calling 01924 378444, and we could have a locksmith out to you in under an hour! We’ll use our expertise to diagnose the issue at hand and repair or replace the faulty parts, where possible, getting your composite door back in working order in no time.

Wooden Door Repairs Wakefield

Wooden Door Lock Repairs

Wooden door locks, also referred to as Mortice locks, are less common today – but don’t worry, we can still repair them for you! We’re often called to homes across Wakefield to repair wooden door locks damaged by the weather resulting in warping, general wear and tear, and even keys broken off in the lock due to excessive force combined with the weight of wooden doors.

Our Wakefield locksmiths are highly experienced in repairing mortice locks on wooden doors, so you can rest assured knowing that you’re in capable hands. Plus, we stock a wide range of wooden door locks and components in our vans, so you won’t have to wait around for spare parts!

Yale Lock Repairs in Wakefield

Yale Lock and Nightlatch Repair Services

Yale locks and nightlatches tend to be pretty robust, so it’s uncommon that we’re called out to repair a damaged one. Typically the Yale or nightlatch jobs we attend in Wakefield are due to people accidentally shutting their doors behind them and locking themselves out! Saying this, a damaged Yale lock isn’t impossible.

If you’re having issues with your Yale lock or nightlatch, we recommend getting it fixed as soon as possible. Leaving issues like your key sticking just places you at risk of being locked out sooner rather than later when the lock eventually breaks.

We’ll attend your Wakefield property as quickly as possible and have your Yale lock repaired or replaced in no time.

Patio door lock repairs wakefield

Repairs for Patio Door Locks

Damaged locks on your patio doors seriously decreases the security of your home, leaving your property extremely vulnerable to burglaries. Unfortunately, due to the number of different parts present in bi-fold doors, standard double doors, french doors, and stable doors, there is an increased risk of a problem arising.

If your patio door lock is damaged, we’ll do everything we can to repair the lock as quickly as possible. If the damage caused has left your patio door lock beyond repair, then we’ll replace the entire lock in the same visit, leaving you safe and sound. Our vans are fully equipped with common patio door locks and spare parts, allowing us to complete your patio door lock repair as quickly as possible.

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.
