5 Things You Didn’t Know

  1. LockRite offers a professional key cutting service. All of the company’s vans are equipped with key-cutting equipment and wide range of household and commercial key blanks. Extra keys for family members or office colleagues can be provided on the spot at much cheaper rate than can be found on the high-street. LockRite can cut keys for all different kinds of locks, including euro cylinder, rim cylinder, mortice sash and screw in rim.
  2. It’s a Yale Smart Security Partner. Yale are security specialists with a reputation for industrial standard home protection systems. Having cut locks for over 150 years, Yale has more recently found a foothold in the smart security market. It offers full home security services that can be conveniently operated from your smartphone or tablet. Since 2015, LockRite has stocked cutting-edge Yale security products, including Key-free Connected Smartlocks. To meet consumer demand, all Yale Smart Living locks are compatible with Amazon Alexa and a selection of other AI operating systems. Responding to market research finding that 55 percent of people like the idea of being able to control their home security via digital devices, Yale has produced software that allows video footage from home wi-fi cameras to be viewed via the Yale App. Yale’s ingenuity has not been left unrecognised. In 2017, its Conexis L1 Smart Door Lock won Consumer Product of the Year at the National Technology Awards. By stocking this premium range of products, LockRite is ensuring that the homes and businesses it serves are in truly safe hands.
  3. It doesn’t charge a call-out fee. LockRite understands that break-ins are intrusive experiences that can be traumatic. To prevent any additional emotional stress, LockRite does not charge a call-out fee to its customers. In many cases, call-out fees are a hidden cost that clients only realise they are being charged at the last moment. LockRite feel that eliminating a call-out fee is the least they can do to make their customers feel at ease when they are at their most vulnerable.
  4. It has a ‘Find a locksmith near me’ search engine on its website. If you want to put a name and face to your local locksmith, LockRite provides profiles for all of its local franchisees. Simply enter your postcode on its website and you’ll have an idea of who’s going to turn up on your doorstep. This is a handy addition to LockRite’s service that helps to ensure security and grants peace of mind.
  5. LockRite provides electronic job updates. For its commercial clients, LockRite offers an online portal that presents real time job updates and reports.
