Lock ID, which lock do you have, price guide Taylors Locksmiths Logo, branding, Gateshead Locksmith Service

Let Taylors Locksmiths, Gateshead Locksmith Service know which lock style you have.


Style 1 Rim Cylinder - Rim Cylinder Locks are mostly found on wooden doors and most people refer to them as Yale locks although there are many other brands available. We supply the lock for £19.99 with 3 keys. The inside component, the latch system is priced at £24.99 with all fittings if required but most of the time its a lock change on these locks or a bypass entry if your locked out. If you are locked out of a rim cylinder lock then we charge a standard labour fee of £54.99 to gain entry.

Style 2 A Mortice Lock - Mortise locks are mostly found on wooden doors, there are two styles of mortise lock, a version with handles known as a sash lock which has a latch and a dead bolt and is operated by a turning a handle and key or the dead lock only version which has no handle that that is turned, it may have a pull handle but it is operated by a key only. These are a pain in the backside to gain entry to, it takes a high degree of skill or and some very expensive tools to gain entry. These are the most secure locks in the UK. We are charge £54.99 for gaining entry but it can take multiple hours if the lock need changing as sometime the modern locks are smaller than older locks and we need to do wood work to fill the locks hole, use filler, paints or varnish. We will always quote before dealing with these style of locks due to there difficulty rating, type of door etc.  


Style 3 a Euro Cylinder -  Cylinder locks are found on UPVC, Composite and Metal doors. These vary in security levels from low none British Standard locks from just £15 to British Standard insurance compliant locks from £24.99 to high security locks, 1 star locks from £34.99 and 3 star rates locks from £54.99, diamond rated locks such as Ultion etc are from £180 up. If you have an Ultion then  Taylors have a dedicated tool set to dealing with Ultion locks as they are the most secure lock in the UK but when they go wrong, they really go wrong. If you use the wrong locksmith and they snap that lock or trigger the built in lock down mode then you maybe looking at getting the door cut out of its frame and new door fitted! So make the correct choose first and choose a company that understands these locks and hardware and actually delivers courses in dealing with high security lock entry which is ourselves. 


If your unsure which lock you have you can call our locksmith on 07525639943.
