Affordable Locksmith Services launch new guide to locks

25th February 2015 - 0 Comments

Everyone uses them, every single day. People rely on them for safety, to protect their families and to keep their propertylocksmithanddoorrepairsglasgow-r25.jpg secure. However, few people could claim to know their sash mortise from their oval cylinder. Now, one Glasgow locksmiths is aiming to put an end to the public's confusion about locks, once and for all.

Affordable Locksmith Services, a Glasgow based company, has recently launched a brand new online guide [] to all the various different types of locks commonly found in a typical home. 

This crash course in lock design was inspired by a problem that is all too common: when a customer calls up an affordable locksmith in Glasgow, whether it's an emergency, a repair or a routine installation, the first question they're likely to face is "what type of lock is it?".

For many customers, this apparently simple question prompts a scratch of the head, followed by a realisation that they - like most people - know very little about the locks they use every day.

Now, thanks to Affordable Locksmith Services, Glasgow locks may well become some of the best identified locks in the country. This family run business has combined pictures, names and straightforward descriptions of all the most common types of locks customers are likely to find in their home. 

According to company spokesperson Steve Neary, the new guide was introduced "to improve customer service and increase awareness". Affordable Locksmith Services hope that by increasing awareness of the various different types of locks, customers will be in a position to make a more informed, confident choice about the kinds of locks that are suitable for different applications. 

The guide provides full colour pictures and easy-to-follow descriptions for the following types of lock: mortise lock, Yale lock, sash mortise lock, Yale nightlatch, Yale lock BS, euro lock, oval cylinder, Scandinavian lock, screwin lock, pushbutton lock, and UPVC lock.

The full guide is available on the company's website [].
