Locks and Home Insurance...What You Need To Know...


As a home owner in Manchester you may be surprised to know that most insurance companies stipulate in their contracts that your Locks must meet British standards of Security (BS3621) otherwise your home Insurance may be invalid and the Insurance company will have the right to refuse your claim! Insurance companies want to make sure you are taking the right precautions to minimise your risk of Burglary to safeguard your home, contents and family. The break in would be bad enough but having the insurance company refuse your claim could be mentally and financially crippling! And that's something we don't want here at Lockforce Locksmiths Manchester.
I often find that most people’s Locks don't meet the British Standard requirements when I'm completing Locksmith work in and around Manchester which can include;

  • Night Latches (also known as Yale locks)
  • Euro Cylinders (UPVC Doors)
  • Mortice Locks (wooden doors)

British standard locks are much safer and more secure than a standard lock, they are tested to replicate wear and tear over time and also against the most common methods of break ins. Here at Lockforce Locksmith Manchester we only supply British standard Locks and also Anti Snap Locks to better safeguard you against Break ins! 
How to tell if you have a British standard lock? - Check for a Kite mark (which looks like a heart) on your lock (see the picture below). Or alternatively give Lockforce Locksmiths Manchester a call for a free and no obligation home security assessment of your current Locks. As a Local Manchester Locksmith we're never far away and always here to help! Give me a call for your FREE survey to see if you're locks are keeping you safe and secure!
