A recent job at Templestowe replacing locks


Today we visited some clients in Templestowe to assist them in updating the security of their home as there had recently been some break Ins in the area. On the first contact when visiting these clients we completed a walk around and free security survey.

On our advice, there were locks that needed to be replaced due to poor quality and locks/handles that simply needed a rekey and update. 

On our second visit Dean, our serviceman replaced the existing locks on the Front, Rear, and Laundry Doors with the Lockwood 001 Deadlock (see attached Brochure).

This type of Lockwood Deadlock is most certainly the lock of choice in this domestic situation due to its quality and strength and longevity in the market.

Upon removing the existing locks the new locks were fitted in place of and checked for their strike alignment.

A change to a new combination for keys after 30 years was also a good idea as this couple had had children and tradesman come and go over the years all of which had access to keys at some point.

We also added extra security in the form of Lockwood 680 Patio Bolts to two sliding doors all of which were Keyed alike to the Front, Rear, and Laundry Doors.   See Lockwood 680 Patio Bolt Image and information below.

All Locks were keyed alike and our customers were very happy with their extra secure outcome and reduced Keyring.
