Company info

Keyforce Locksmiths is a locally owned and operated 24 hour emergency Locksmith business ran by Michael Brown.

I offer a 24 hour 7 day a week service to residential and commercial customers including, Emergency door opening, Faulty locks changed and upgraded where necessary, Free security advice given, Insurance work as well as other services such as automotive non destructive entry. I can also fit locks to wrought iron and can carry out welding which may be required on some projects.

I specialise in UPVC and carry around 80% of all Mortice Locks, Padlocks, Euro Cylinders, Bullet Locks, Roller Shutter Locks, Garage Door Locks and Mechanisms so most jobs can be carried out with one visit but if a second visit is necessary I don't charge extra like some Locksmiths.

The price I give is the price you pay.

I cut Mortice and Cylinder keys on site which is a bonus because the keys can be checked with the lock before I leave the property. Unlike most Locksmiths operating in the Northeast when you ring you speak to me directly and I will answer any questions directly and honestly and will give you step by step advice and options as well as a price over the phone if necessary, then I will personally attend your property and carry out the work.

I also offer you a realistic time scale in which I can get to your property, which in most cases is 30 minutes. Upon arrival you will be pleased to know that the engineer you spoke to on the phone is the engineer who will carry out the work, unlike some companies who have call centre staff with no knowledge of Locksmithing.

I am also an affiliate of ADT, the national alarm company so if you need alarms just speak to me about it.

Replaced inside mechanism of door which had sheared off

Verified Review

I called Michael at 9.15 after returning from the school run to find my door handle would just spin round and not open the door. He arrived within 10 mins and had managed to get the door open and replace the broken mechanism with a quality new part. He was really friendly and had me back into the house within half an hour of arriving, plus he guaranteed the part for two years. Absolutely brilliant service from a nice local bloke, top marks thank you Michael!

Patio doors wouldn’t open

Verified Review

An absolute gentleman, came to my mother in laws patio doors which were refusing to open, we had no idea what the problem was so we really were hoping that it wasn’t too serious or expensive. Diagnosis took 2 minutes and all they needed were re alignment and a service. Will recommend to everyone who needs a locksmith
