Types of Locks

Here at Locksmith Manchester – 0161 Co we are constantly asked about additonal lock installations. Whether it be adding an additional lock to a door, or installing a lock on a bedroom door…there are many reasons people want to install locks from scratch, so I thought it best to have a page on my website with exactly what locks are available – what locks are best suited, and most definitely the PRICES!

A locking knob set is a cheap and quick solution to having a lock on your internal doors.

They have a key on the outside, and a little twisty turn on the inside that you can deadlock your door with. 



Mortice Deadlock £150.00 Per Door Fitted Including Parts & Labour

Mortice deadlocks are absoultely brilliant locks. Most insurance companies ask for a British Standard (BS3621) mortice lock on any wooden final exit door. The reason behind this – is that they are super secure.

Deadcase With Thumb Turn £165.00 Per Door Fitted Including Parts & Labour
