Her experience & expertise avoided having to buy a new door. I thoroughly recommend her. Thank you Deb for your hard work & doing a first class job, it’s much appreciated.

Fabulous service! Debbie quietly and professionally fixed our handle and lock that a previous locksmith had said was impossible. Now I know why she gets such brilliant reviews!


Deb was a delight to deal with.

We are so pleased that we were given contact details as Debbie, confirmed arrival on the morning that we phoned her and arrived promptly. Debbie was friendly and professional, with excellent expertise in quickly, efficiently and cleanly replacing lock barrel but also fixing the other damage to the door lock panel. Debbie worked swiftly and also gave good advice on other concerns we had. We would not hesitate in highly recommending The Lock Monkey and will keep these contact details on record to pass on to our friends and family. Although based out in Exmouth The Lock Monkey carries out work all over Devon and are reasonably priced, unlike many of the larger national companies. Thank you for all your help and advice and for carrying out this repair so quickly. We will definitely be using you again and recommend others to do so. It is always good to be able to use and have a local independent company to use. Once again, many thanks. JillResponse from the ownerThank you so much for the lovely review Am glad I could help at such a stressful time ALLEN M.ALLEN M. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… What can I say? All I can do is concur with all the other 5* reviews that are already on this page. I phoned, Debbie answered the phone. Yes, she would come in two days time. And she did, 10 minutes before the agreed time. She tackled the errant lock and she left it working. I then turned her attention to a new problem that had occurred on one of our conservatory doors. It is a worn out door so there is not much that she could do but nevertheless she looked at it and in the end she left it in a secure state. Well done Debbie you deserve every 5* review that you receive. I thoroughly recommend.Response from the ownerThank you for the fantastic review .I’m glad I could help Jason I.Jason I. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Absolutely wonderful messaged back straight away and was here in 1/2 hr and is coming back to complete workWould highly recommend Thank youSue InghamResponse from the ownerSue Thanks for the great review ,your emergency job is our emergency Happy to help js_loader

Highly recommendedAlex RussellAlex Russell β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… I highly recommend The Lock Monkey. My patio door lock has been faulty for a long time. However, two previous double glazing repair specialists said there was nothing wrong with it, despite me not being able to lock it sometimes. The Lock Monkey arrived punctually, and within 20 minutes had both diagnosed the problem and repaired the lock! It was such a relief. Thank you for your help.Debbie BalesDebbie Bales β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… 🌟 🌟 ⭐️⭐️⭐️ fabulous service.
