North London Locksmith service over Christmas!
As many North London Locksmiths will tell you this can be the busiest time of the year and on many occasions not in a positive way. Using the basic security on your doors and windows is an absolute must as break-ins can occur whether you are in the house or not!
Your front door should have a deadlocking facility and if it doesn’t I would strongly recommending getting one straight away, whether it be a thumb-turn lock that conforms with BS8621 or a lock that conforms to the traditional BS3621. But please remember that additional locks should not be fitted to communal doors as this would be a hazard in the event of a fire, however an approved North London Locksmith would know this anyway.
Make it as awkward as possible for anyone to intrude into your property, intruders are opportunists and quite often want to get in and out quickly, in fact on many occasions they are rarely in a property for more than 90 seconds. Any window that doesn’t have a key operated lock is an area an intruder could see as an easy entry point and a key lock is an absolute minimum-grilles are of course one of the better visual deterrents and along with an alarm can put of someone from breaking in.
