Locksmith Manchester – Are you Thee James Bond? Erm…No.

locksmith in mancheter city centreHere at Locksmith Manchester – 0161 Company we often get asked as we’re letting someone in on their doorstep – how does James Bond do it?

To be honest with you – the actual concept of slipping a lock with a credit card is not too far fetched – but, as a Locksmith in Manchester we don’t whip our HSBC credit card out to let you into your front door – but we do have a piece of kit that is a little like a giant credit card!

Nutribullet vs Locksmith Manchester – 0161 Company to Attend!!

maintenance of locks in manchesterWe read all too often in the news about the importance of eating our greens. About maintaining a healthy lifestyle, not drinking too much and exercising regularly. Did you know your doors also require important maintenance? An example thanks to the Locksmith Manchester we can talk about is regarding UPVC doors maintenance. When you lift the handle on your UPVC door says the owner of Locksmith Manchester, the metal rods that run at the back of your mechanism engage and push various locking mechanisms out of the door and into the frame.

As I’m sure you’re aware moisture can get into the door and when it reacts with metal it can cause rust. All you need to do says the owner of Locksmith Manchester -0161 is a oil your mechanism regularly – just a little squirt of oil in each of the working the mechanism sections you can see, will give your mechanism years! Is also the same when it comes to Yale locks on wooden doors and mortise locks on wooden doors, when you turn the key in a mortise lock it lifts up levers and pushes the bolts out. Again moisture can get into the mortise lock case says the owner of Locksmith Manchester -0161 Company and can create rust, so again a little squirt into the working parts that you can see will mean your mortise lock could possibly outlive you! The same applies to Yale locks just squirts in where the key goes and watch it live forever. So whilst it’s not the same as eating five portions of fruit and veg a day as a Locksmith Manchester, imagine you’re locking mechanisms having the same enjoyment from a few squirts of oil!
