Why Do Housing Associations Need A Locksmith?

What did the Yale lock say to the Chubb key?

‘You’re not my type.’

At My Locks Locksmiths, we believe that puns are key – because you need a good sense of humour when you’ve locked yourself out in the rain! Or, more specifically when one of your residents have locked their keys inside their house (again) and you need to get them back inside.

Our expert locksmiths work in partnership with housing and resident’s associations in and around Reading to provide a security safety net. From helping residents gain access to their property to installing secure locks and creating master keys for your offices – when it comes to locks and keys, we’ve got you covered.

The Official Bits

At My Locks, we’re avid collectors of locksmith and industry certificates and badges! We are members of the Master Locksmiths Association (which means we’ve been fully vetted, inspected and qualified by the best in the industry), an active member of the Federation of Small Businesses and a high-ranking member of Which Trusted Trader.  We’re also members of the British Locksmith Institute, City & Guilds Locksmithing and are SAFE contractor approved. We’ve also specialised in access control and electric locks through Paxton Access and Abloy certified security so that we can provide the best possible service.

Why does that matter? Because locksmithing is not actually a regulated industry! That means any cowboy with a bit of money can buy some tools and claim to be a locksmith – which is how you get bad service and broken doors. By choosing a locksmith who has qualified with the Master Locksmiths Association and achieved a range of industry certificates, you can be sure your locksmith will be reputable, turn up on time and do a great job.
