Cylinder Rim Locks (Yale Locks)

If you lose keys to a cylinder rim lock (Yale lock) our Locksmiths will try and pick the cylinders where possible if this is not possible we would most probably have to drill the lock to open the door and then change the lock barrel. Barrel changes on Yale type locks are generally inexpensive

Mortice Locks

If you lose keys to a mortice lock a professional locksmiths will usually drill the lock to gain entry, replace the lock and provide a new set of keys. Alternatively a professional locksmith could pick the lock to gain entry and then make a new key for the lock however, making keys is more time consuming and therefore often the more expensive option.

Suited or Restricted Systems

If you lose a key to a suited or restricted lock we can replace your suited lock or order a new key on your behalf.

As the UK’s largest key cutter, cutting in excess of 7.5 million keys per year, Timpson can duplicate virtually any key type, either on the Locksmiths van, in our shops or at our specialist key centre
