What can go wrong with locks

Quite simply, anything at all!

Locks can seize up – and this is often the case when a particular door is little used so the lock itself becomes rusted and stiff to the point where it won’t lock or unlock. In that scenario you most probably need a new unit or barrel, and our team will do their utmost to find and fit a new lock which is in keeping with the old one.

Broken keys

It is surprising how many keys break off in their locks. This is a difficult task to repair so many people turn to our expert fitters to extract the cylinder and the offending key before replacing it.

That sounds easy but in reality quite a number of cases like this end up with new cylinders and with new keys as there are occasions when the cylinder has to be drilled out.

Serviced Offices also often need barrels replacing when a client leaves a room and a new client is taking on the room. C|S|M can quickly and efficiently replace these barrels ensuring maximum security for your clients at all times.

Door handles are another source of problems in the making, especially when they are so worn internally the handle jiggles about which makes them totally useless.
