Faced with a lockout problem, you should not immediately resort to trying to break the locking device and open the garage. There are many ways to solve the problem without causing unnecessary damage. Keep in mind that sometimes burglars tamper with complex locking mechanisms on purpose in the hope that you will break the garage door, and they will have time to get inside until you install a new lock. To avoid such a situation, call London locksmiths who can carry out the repair work immediately following the emergency gain of entry.
HOW TO OPEN A GARAGE
The jamming of a locking device is the most common problem in cold weather. In such a situation, standard door lock opening methods using a master key will not help because the interior of the device is soldered by frozen water. The solution to the problem is quite simple; you need to warm up the lock using a burner or a homemade torch. Periodically, it is necessary to tap on the metal surface of the garage door in the place where the body of the locking mechanism is installed. If this does not help, then you will have to cut out the locking mechanisms. Most often, London locksmiths use the following methods to open a garage locking device:
- Cutting out the fastening of the locking mechanism. Not the fastest way, in which the weld points of the fastener or the body are drilled out, and then the locking cylinders are cut off;
- Opening with master keys;
- Opening with replacement of the cylinder. This is the fastest way to gain entry to locked premises. In addition, replacing the cylinder is less expensive than performing a complete garage door lock repair.
To avoid the need for a costly repair, follow the rules for the operation of locking devices and carry out regular servicing. By the way, one of the main reasons for mechanism jamming is improper care. Without a special lubricant on hand, some use grease, which leads to corrosion and chemical welding of parts. Also, in no case should you use vegetable oils. After that, it is impossible to open the locking device using safe methods. We offer services for garage door lock repair of any complexity in London on a 24/7 basis.
We received an excellent service from the team. They were professional, hard working and even carried out an extra request at no charge - all in all a great service
Fast and friendly service. I often have to make keys for work. I always use the services of these guys. They are great!
I lost my keys and found myself in a difficult situation. Mr Rubin kept my spirits up, came quickly, did the job well. Just rescued me, thank you very much.
I had a chance to deal with this company last Friday, I came home for lunch, but I could not get into the apartment, I opened one lock, and the second in no way, I could not turn the key at all. As a result, I found this company on the Internet and asked them to send a master to me in the evening. At the agreed time, the master was already waiting for me near the entrance, and after 15-20 minutes I was already in my apartment. It turned out to be neatly opened. I am glad that everything went without problems, quickly and relatively inexpensive
For the first time I had a chance to contact such a company, I stupidly slammed the door last Sunday, really, like a story in the movie, I jumped out into the store, and when I heard the door slam behind me I realized that the keys were in the apartment. I called this organization, they promised to send the master as soon as possible. And they did not disappoint, for less than an hour I waited for his arrival, a smart little man. He worked for about 10 minutes, slowly, and voila, the door is open.
An unpleasant situation occurred, the door to the apartment slammed, and the keys were left on the other side. I don’t keep a backup option from my neighbors, but my wife was on a business trip. The phone was with me, I found this company on the Internet and called. The master arrived very promptly. Within an hour I was there. He quickly opened the lock.
I called these guys in hopes they would do a good job on replacing my door locks. I must say, the locksmith, if I remember correctly, his name is John, handled the job with ease, and my locks are working perfectly up to the present moment. Thanks a bunch!
Thank you very much for such a good job done. These people certainly know their business. Get the job done very quickly. I was recommended to me by a friend and I was satisfied. Thanks again!!!!!
Had troubles opening my door lock once in a while. I decided to take care of the business before it gets worse. As I don't know much about locks, I called this company. The locksmith came to me in 20 minutes, checked the lock, and told me it needs cleaning. He finished the job in a few minutes. Must say I'm pleased with the level of service. They are somebody I can rely on. Definitely recommend them.
