Stirling Locksmith FAQ’s
What is a locksmith?
Locksmiths are skilled professionals who repair, replace and maintain various types of locks. At Forth Locksmiths in Stirling and surrounding areas, we have many years of experience helping people gain entry to their homes or premises with none destructive entry (NDE) methods where possible.
What does a locksmith do?
Locksmiths are skilled professionals who help their customers gain entry to their properties, whether it be domestic or commercial. Locksmiths are able to duplicate or replace keys, fix locks and even break locks if so required. At Forth Locks, we offer a range of locksmith services in Stirling and the surrounding areas.
Can a locksmith make a key from a lock?
Yes, a skilled locksmith is able to make a key from a lock. There are multiple methods to do this however the most common is to create an impression of the lock by inserting a blank key, which when turned, leaves an impression on the blank key revealing the lines that need to be cut. The second option would be to remove the lock and “crack” the key. This involves a skilled locksmith taking the lock apart and analysing the lengths of the pins within the lock. These pins are unique to every lock and determine the shape and size of a key. Once the pin lengths and their order have been “cracked”, the locksmith is then able to create a duplicate key. If you are in a situation where your key needs to be replicated from your lock, contact our experienced locksmiths in Stirling today.
Does home insurance cover locksmith?
Some home insurance policies will cover locksmith services, and some may not. The best thing to do is check directly with your insurance provider or read through your home insurance documents. There may be instances where locksmith services will be covered, for example, after a break-in, but there may be some cases where it is not, for example, if you have misplaced your keys.
What does an emergency locksmith do?
Emergency Locksmiths come to your domestic or commercial property in the event that you are locked out, your lock is broken, or you have lost your keys. At Forth Locksmiths, we understand that this is a pressing matter and aim to be at your property within 30 minutes. Once there, our skilled emergency locksmiths in Stirling will assess the situation and perform the service required.
Do locksmiths break locks?
Not always, as experienced locksmiths in Stirling, we will only break or “drill” locks as a last resort. Before this, we will make every effort to resolve the situation with none destructive entry (NDE) methods. Lock drilling is only used when NDE methods are not possible, or the situation in which you need to access the property is time-pressing.
