ASL Locksmiths attended a client’s property in Lewes to help fix a snapped key in their front door lock. Upon inspecting the lock, we found that the barrel had failed mechanically, causing the key to jam and then break off.

We supplied and fitted a very high security Diamond grade 3 star insurance rated Euro cylinder barrel with 5 keys.

This high security lock is designed to safeguard the door from forced attacks. The protection works with the cylinder having been engineered to have a sacrificial point, which when tampered from the outside, sets an interlocking cam mechanism into action. This prevents any damage to the internal parts of the cylinder, while still allowing access on the lock from the inside.

Holding one of the highest possible security certifications, this lock ensures our customer’s property is safe and secure. It also comes with a 10 year manufacturers warranty.

You can give us a call for immediate security solutions such as lock repairs and changes as well as installations, and service emergency lockouts. Take a look at the extensive locksmith projects we’ve done here.
