Locked Out Cathays

If you have just been locked out which can be so easily done call us for a free no-obligation quote.  We can usually do this over the phone from just asking a series of questions to give you an accurate quote. We might ask you questions which you might not understand but which would make total sense to our locksmiths.  


Questions The Locksmith May Ask Over The Phone

The questions the locksmith may ask, Will be something like:- 

  • Is the Door Pvc or Wood?
  • Did you lose the key or leave it inside?
  • If the Door is wood is the lock on the right-hand side of the Left as you look at it from outside. 
  • When you shut the door behind you was the key left in the backside of the lock?
  • Has the door been physical locked or just shut?

From us and the locksmith asking questions, they can gage more information. 

I.E. From asking "If the Door is wood is the lock on the right-hand side of the Left as you look at it from outside."  Mortice locks are more of the difficult locks a locksmith has to open in an emergency. When we ask if the lock is on the right-hand side of the door or the left we work out if its the bolt side or leaver side of the lock facing outside. This is which side of the lock we have to open and work with. Even though all of our emergency locksmiths are specially trained to open all types of locks there can be a little element of a struggle some times for us to open mortice locks. if the lock is on the right-hand side of the door that means the bolt side is what we have to open which is far harder than if the lock was on the left side of the door which would be the leaver side. For James, your locksmith in Cardiff would charge more to open a mortice bolt side lock than if a mortice lock was fitted to the left side of the door. 

When you call please answer all our questions to the best of your knowledge this is to give you the most accurate price.
