Winchester Locksmith: Emergency 24 Hour Trusted Locksmith
No Call out Charge
Same Day Service
Locksmith Direct are on hand to help you back into your home or office 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for emergency situations like being locked out. Our dedicated locksmiths are committed to providing our customers with the best service we can at a price that follows our fair price policy by being transparent, honest and competitive.
With years of experience and knowledge within the locksmithing industry, we can complete most jobs on our first visit, leaving you more time to carry on with your day-to-day life. All of our locksmiths are local, trustworthy and competent. They have been vetted and have a DBS check certificate, so you know you’re in safe hands when you use Locksmith Direct.
We don’t just receive calls for emergency work. We also receive many calls for non-emergency work, such as changing the locks on properties where you have just moved into. Changing your locks gives you confidence that no one has keys to your new home except you. Other jobs, such as locks not working as they should or uPVC doors with problems, are jobs that we can book at a time and date that works for you.
Having insurance-approved locks makes your home or office more secure. Locks that comply with the British Standard 3621-2004 have been tested by a governing body and passed specific tests to comply with the British Kitemark Sign. This means that your home or office insurance will be valid if you were broken into through the British Standard Lock. Most insurance companies will ask what locks are on internal doors as well as external doors.
Cylinders in uPVC doors do not need to be British Standard to pass insurance approval. This is because the entire door is insurance approved and can be referred to as a 5-point locking system. However, having a British Standard cylinder fitted to your uPVC door will make the property more secure than a non-British Standard cylinder.
There are so many things to think about when picking up the keys for your new home. Most people don’t think about the most important job that should be covered when moving into a new home, and that is to change the locks.
For you to feel secure and to meet most insurance standards, changing the locks on external doors is the most important single job that you can do for security. With new locks fitted, you will have peace of mind knowing that you are in control of your keys and no one has keys you do not know about.
Having new locks fitted is relatively inexpensive if you use Locksmith Direct because we check our prices on a regular basis to make sure you are getting value for money.

Door or Window won't lock?
We are well versed in the problems that accrue with uPVC doors and windows. This can be the door not locking correctly to a key stuck in the cylinder. We can replace parts, including whole mechanisms making sure your door or window is working as the manufacturer intended, saving you money by not having the expense of replacing the door or window.
Questions to ask yourself before deciding to call out Locksmith Direct:
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you will save time and money by calling Locksmith Direct before the locking system fails and you need an emergency visit.
Being locked out of your home or business premises can be stressful. At Locksmith Direct, we aim to take the stress out of the situation by arriving at our agreed time and using non-destructive methods such as picking the lock instead of drilling it.
Using non-destructive methods makes the jobs cheaper as we will not have to replace the lock and causes less noise and hassle.
If you have lost your keys we recommend getting the locks changed. We will still use non-destructive methods even if the keys have been lost or stolen.
