Locksmiths need to make use of the right tools

Operating on a 24 hours 7 days a week basis, our locksmiths are able to take on any job in Northampton that they are called upon to do. There’s no need to worry about damage to your property when working with us, as we utilise non-destructive methods when gaining entry and changing your locks. We work hard to deliver the very best level of service on every single job.

Similar to how surgeons require scalpels for surgery, locksmiths need to make use of picks to open your locks. The use of hairpins is something that’s over-glorified in the movies. In truth lock repairs are incredibly delicate. As such, this type of work should only be undertaken by professionals such as ourselves with the right equipment to call on.

We use a specialised set of tools and while it may seem like a confusing practice, especially to amateurs looking for success in the industry, both green and veteran workers should carry some basic things with them at all times. The plug spinner for example is a vital tool that’s used to revert locks. In order to bring the plug back to its unblocked state, we use the spinners to rotate, lift and move it. When handling one, the locksmith needs to know the accurate positioning of the differing lock components to use the spinner properly.

For the more complex locks, computerised picks are regularly used. They’re convenient when looking to crack open locks designed to be highly secure like the combination systems. Coming equipped with high-tech components, these reliable tools are designed to configure a total of 6 disc patterns and pins.

At TMN Locksmiths, we always make sure that our team are prepared for a job by stocking our vans with all the necessary equipment before coming to you. Just let us know what it is that you require and we will do the rest. Whenever you’re suffering from a case of lock troubles, we are the people to call and are established as a leading provider in the Northampton area.
