Hi, my name is Richard, I work as a Locksmith in the evenings and overnight, 7 days per week.
I've had my business for a year and started trading in 2017 as a sole trader.
My trading name is 5-2-5 Overnight Locksmith and represents my general availability as part of my brand, that being 5pm to 5am.

That window typically covers emergency work but can be used to perform less urgent routine maintenance and provides a mechanism to book work in so that you dont need to take a day off work for me to visit you. Eventually I hope to offer a fully 24/7 coverage, right now its 12 hours, overnight only.

My specialism is in NDE or Non Destructive Entry, mainly working in the Residential and Commercial sector, I also do Gain Entry work with Vehicles, UPVC locking mechanism repair - including Window lock and window handle repairs, lock replacements, lock upgrades, and security handles.

I am a stockist or supplier and installer of the following branded locks and handles:

KASP / Karl Cammerling Padlocks -
SASHstop -
Ultion High Security Cylinders -
Lock-Lock High Security Handles -
Versa Anti-Snap Cylinders -

If there are specific security or branded products you are looking for, please ask, as I also do custom work for example I recently repaired a locking mechanism on a Velux window, custom jobs can take a little longer due to research and parts ordering but should cost no more in labour than a normal project. It just takes a little longer to organise and research things. Please note some locks and mechanisms can be obsolete and need to be replaced with universal / retrofit parts. 

Call any time after 5pm to enquire or get a free quotation.
Please note that all calls are recorded for crime prevention, security, and dispute resolution purposes.
