Locksmithing in Brighton & Hove

Our team will always attempt to pick a lock in the first instance, using a professional tool such as a ‘slim-jim’ or a hookpick.

We Stock Your Euro Cylinder Lock   

Euro Cylinder lock sizes begin at 25mm and range up to 60mm. These then increase either side of the centre in 5mm increments.  KC Brighton Locksmiths recommend anti-snap Cylinder locks, with the 3 Star British Standard, but these may replace TS007 Locks, Anti-pick, Anti-bump and 1 Star locks. The Ultion Ultimate Euro Cylinder even comes with a £1000 guarantee – we offer anti-snap 3 Star Euro Cylinder locks in all our recommended repairs and replacements and these can be all be used on UPVC doors to increase the level of your homes’ security. 

Door Replacement 

KC Brighton Locksmiths recommend that the best place to begin when beginning upgrading your home security is your front door. This is the single most cost-effective way to improve your home’s protection as it is very easy to make small enhancements that add layers of security. Take a door or key chain for instance – this can be installed at very little cost – and they protect you from unwanted visitors in addition to being a deterrent to opportunist criminals who may try to break and enter into your house. While uPVC doors look like they have an impressive locking system, without a proper anti-snap euro cylinder, the same would-be burglar could easily snap the lock to your home and succeed at a break-in. KC Brighton Locksmiths use anti-snapping locks with a 3 Star British Standard rating in all their replacements.

For those homes with wooden doors, KC Brighton Locksmiths truly believe that having a Yale lock in addition to a mortice lock if you don’t already have one. For those houses that do have these installed, we suggest anti-thrust plates as an additional measure. This is a deterrent; it is a plate of metal that covers the gap between the frame and the door, preventing any tools being wedged in-between the gap to break it open.
