Charge To Open a Nightlatch – (Late Night or Emergency)
Average Price: £75
Top Price: £130
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.
