Another busy couple of days for DR Locks

Another busy couple of days for DR Locks.


24 Hour locksmith and UPVC repairs


We started the week in backworth with a failed multi-point lock on a set of French UPVC doors, the doors were put in 13 years ago and the replacement lock was obsolete but we managed to source the upgrade lock and adapt It to fit the customers door. They were very happy to be able to use their doors fully again.

Then over to North shields where a landlords tenant had tried to open the UPVC door with a key in the back and twisted the barrel, with a replacement lock all was solved and the door was fully functional again.


Up to Seaton delaval where a lady had lived with the noise of the traffic at a night time for a number of years, this was due to hinge and mechanism failure which we quickly repaired with brand new like for like parts, the customer was very pleased and can now get a better nights sleep.


Over to South shields where a gentleman had snapped his key in the lock of his UPVC door, We extracted the key and the customer wanted to upgrade his lock whilst we were there.


Back to North shields where a young couple had taken ownership of a shop and in the middle of renovating it the mortice deadlock on the main entrance to the shop had failed and jammed shut. We quickly opened the property back up and fitted a new 5 lever british standard lock so they could get back to focusing on their business start up.


A local well known coffee franchise had troubles with their aluminium doors again which was the entrance to their store which they need fully operational to keep their business functioning. Within an hour we had the door back to normal and it was business as usual for them.
