More Information

Digital door locks can be installed on a variety of doors:

  • Aluminium and Glass Doors
  • External Doors
  • UPVC Doors
  • Timber and Wood Doors

5-lever mortice dead locks are commonly used on wooden doors. They lock on both sides as they get fitted WITHIN the door rather than ON the door.


Unlike most locks that are placed on the surface of the door, the 5-lever mortice lock is fitted within the door. It locks from both the outside and the inside of the door using a key.


These locks were popular in the 90's for timber doors hinged on the left or the right.  They can be very expensive to replace.


Most of the time, the reason why locksmiths charge a lot for their service is because of the clients’ urgency. If you need to change your locks immediately and outside the usual business hours, you may expect to pay more for the service. Along with this, locksmiths may also charge more if they have to travel a distance to get to you.  A good locksmith should be able to open this in a matter of minutes with no damage to the lock, however if the lock has failed or the snib has malfunctioned, drilling may be the only option.


Euro Cylinder locks are most commonly seen on residential properties with UPVC doors.

The prices quoted here are for non emergency callouts on standard (Non BS) euro locks.  If you have lost the keys, and the door is locked, there will usually be an extra charge depending on the labour involved.

In an emergency or out of hours situation, the prices will usually increase around 25 %.  British Standard locks will usually be dearer also.


A night latch is one of the most popular types of lock that’s used in residential properties with wooden doors. These locks are simple yet very effective in providing basic security for homes, but if your in a rush and forget your keys inside the house and close the door, then you're locked out!

This price is for opening only. Not replacing.  A new cylinder may be approximately £20 - £30 on top of this price.  This should only be needed if the lock is damaged or if you have no spare keys.


The price quoted is if you have a non "Lock Out" scenario. E.G. if you want the lock changed as someone else has your key or if your current keys are sticky in your lock.

Having your Yale rim cylinder changed is usually a quick service. This is the price for the cylinder only. Not the case on the inside.
