I'm Alan Hocknell, trading as All Locked Out.  

I am a skilled 24 hour locksmith with over 15 years experience and I live in Tenterden, Kent, with my wife, daughter and our Jack Russell, Baxter.
Unlike many other locksmiths, I don’t charge a call out fee; instead I provide a clear price for the job to be done, with no surprises later.  

I am reliable, conscientious, fast, friendly and good value, as you can see from my testimonials on a local forum in East Dulwich, where I lived until March 2016:,1228287,1447924#msg-1447924

I work for private individuals, commercial clients, housing associations and letting agencies.  90% of jobs are completed in one visit as my van is always well stocked with a variety of insurance compliant BS3621 locks.
I work as non-destructively as possible (ie: picking locks rather than drilling) and I reach most customers within 30 minutes of their call, and often much quicker!
Please call me for a no obligation quotation. I am not a call centre or agency, so when you call you will reach me directly.
