FIND MY IDEAL LOCKING SOLUTION
To simplify your decision, consider whether you want a complete door security overhaul or a focused upgrade. Essentially, do you prefer to:

We share real customer case studies for both these options below. If you are still uncertain about the best path forward, we suggest further step-by-step guidance at the end of the page that can assist you in making an informed decision.
1. CHANGING ALL LOCKS FOR PEACE OF MIND
This is a pivotal step in enhancing home security. There are several compelling reasons for making this upgrade: a new door, moving home, losing your keys or experienced a break-in.
Regardless of the motivation, the ultimate goal is to restore peace of mind by fortifying the security of your home.
When changing all your locks, consider installing a matching set of high-security door locks with the same key for added convenience.

CASE STUDY #5:
OLD DEADLOCK REPLACED WITH INSURANCE RATED DEADBOLT
When renewing his home insurance, Adam realised his deadlock was not insurance rated. He purchased a BS3621 morticed deadbolt with large lockguards that give added protection to the cylinder and act as an extra visual deterrent. As he was swapping one mortice lock for another he was confident to do the job himself.
CASE STUDY #6:
ADDING AN AUTOMATIC DEADBOLT TO AVOID DOUBLE LOCKING
Yan's flat is on the lower ground floor so she is extra security conscious. When she moved in, her first job was to add an automatic deadbolt to the bottom of her door. It works with her existing nightlatch to automatically ‘double lock’ her door at 2 points as it closes. Its easy to unlock the locks, one after the other, with one hand.
