LOCAL WINDOW LOCK SERVICES LONDON
Window lock change in plastic structures will definitely be required during intensive use. It is difficult to carry out the work on your own without experience and special tools. The best solution is to entrust your window lock to a specialist from our local London company. Any locking mechanism will gradually fail over time no matter the quality and price tag of the product. Moreover, it is possible to foresee a lock breakdown long before its appearance. Scheduled servicing of window locking devices will help to avoid more serious malfunctions and keep your home or office premises in London safe. Replacement of window fittings should be carried out in a timely manner to guarantee trouble-free operation of all system’s components. Otherwise, the holes for fastening mechanisms may loosen, other problems may arise. All this leads to an increase in the cost of repairs. The main signs of a malfunction are as follows:
- It takes an effort to close or open the window;
- Sealing is compromised – drafts occur, the room cools faster;
- The lock handle is difficult to turn – at the same time the sash begins to fall off its hinges.
Lock replacement in all of the above cases should be carried out by an experienced locksmith. However, you can try it yourself to find out which elements are out of order. This will significantly reduce the time for changing faulty lock parts. It is thanks to the fittings that you can open the window, close it, set it for ventilation. All of the above tasks are implemented by a rotary mechanism. It is a set of movable heads – changing their position allows you to close and open the window structure. For example, when closed, all heads move to the top corner. Window fittings for plastic structures allow you to control mechanisms inside the frame. Main components:
- Direct gear – allows the handle to move up and down;
- A pair of angle-type gears – move the sash in the longitudinal direction;
- “Scissors” – they hold the sash and connect it to the upper hinge.

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.

The mentioned “from” price of 29 GBR applies to the cheapest opening (e.g. simply opening a tumbler lock with a lockpick), but not for house or apartment doors.
