Non-destructive Entry in Exmouth and Devon


If you are locked out of your home for any reason, we will be able to gain entry to your property and replace the lock if necessary. Our engineers are very experienced in these situations provide a top quality service.

All of our locksmiths will use non-destructive methods to gain entry to your property wherever possible. This means that they will try all methods of picking and encouraging your lock to open and carry a range of tools to help them to achieve this outcome.

However, it would be very misleading to say that drilling/forcing the lock is never necessary. No locksmith can guarantee this because there can be so many different causes for lock failure, some of which are impossible to rectify with picking. In these cases, the lock must be removed and replaced. Additionally, different locks require different methods of entry. For example, uPVC doors are common and these have a cylinder lock which can often be opened with no damage to your lock. Other cylinder locks (Yale-type locks) can often be opened without damage. Mortice locks are much more difficult to open using and may need to be drilled. This would require a new lock. Our engineers carry a range of locks and replacement is often less expensive than repeated attempts at opening a locked or damaged mortice.

Our promise:

We will always try non-destructive methods first. If drilling is required, this will be explained to you, and agreed by you, BEFORE any work is carried out. Our locksmiths will use precise drilling methods to remove your lock with as little damage as possible, and they are all highly experienced in this type of work. We aim to leave little or no mess behind us, and to ensure your complete satisfaction.
