ASL Locksmiths received an emergency call for a commercial property down West Street in Brighton. The company’s main entrance door had been attacked in an attempted break-in, resulting in damage to the lock casing. The breakage meant the door could not be locked.

The original lock, now damaged was an item that was no longer in stock. For a replacement, it would have had to be ordered and would have taken several days to arrive. We took urgent action to the door the same day, carefully dismantling the broken lock case without adding further damages to it.

After we have identified the broken part, we made the necessary repairs then rebuilt the unit on site. We refitted and tested the lock and soon it was back to operating smoothly. The property was left secure for our customer.

Depending on the client’s needs or requests, we do a wide variety of security services like burglary repairs, repairs to locks, UPVC doors and windows, lock installations, emergency lockouts, and more. See more of our locksmithing projects or give us a call for more information.

Emergency Lock Repair


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.

Barrell replacement

ASL locksmiths were called by a customer in Brighton who had lost their keys. We installed a replacement lock part.

ASL fitted a new Ingersoll barrel. Replacement parts make sense for the environment and keep costs down. Ingersoll design has an ultra hardened top to resist drilling. They use a 10-lever, high security cylinder system to ensure long-lasting security and durability that lasts for years.

Our locksmiths recommend Ingersoll products. Originally designed in Britain by Jack W. Taylor. Ideas for the 10 cylinder lock were reportedly formed in 1944.

History of Ingersoll

The Ingersoll lock manufacturing is now made by a Swedish company ASSA ABLOY

who concentrate on high quality mechanical security products as part of their global product range. We only source directly from Ingersoll to ensure that we only have 100% genuine parts. Because Ingersoll locks have been existing for so long, there are many counterfeit and imitation products. But nothing beats the time-tested security of a genuine Ingersoll.

If you need lock repairs, maintenance, replacements, and other services, we are only one call away.

MPL mechanism

ASL locksmiths were called to attend a Brighton property to supply and fit a Yale multi point locking unit (MPL) for a UPVC door.

Once corrosion & rust has spread often causes the locking points to fail, so we retrofitted it with a new multi point locking unit, installed an ISEO barrel, a satin handle and full length brand new strikes to keep the frame secured at multiple points. The result is a robust, almost like new UPVC door.

If you need repairs, installation, or replacement for your UPVC doors, windows or double glazing? You’re at the right place, ASL locksmiths have complete many UPVC jobs and can help you secure your property. Repairs are better for the environment. For a fast response call or contact us.
