    How much locksmiths charge per hour and each day in London? Does it vary depending on whether you live in the city, on the edge of the city or in the suburban areas of the general London area? Or on the other hand, are the prices practically the same?

    I want to upgrade the locks of every exterior door of my property. What type of locks should I have fitted if I want ones that are more secure than most but not necessarily too expensive either?

    Asked by Carol on 17th Aug 2020

    Bedroom door is stuck shut and I can’t open it from the outside. I’m not on the side with the latch visible so I can’t open it that way. Can I open the door without damaging it? It’s just a standard wooden door with a lever latch handle and I can lower the handle but the latch inside isn’t moving. Help!

    My porch door won't lock, it is a double glazed upvc door only fitted a year ago. The handle lifts up but it seems like it is sticking so I can't turn the key. Does anyone know how to fix it cheaply?

    My front door’s lock has become very stiff recently when I try to turn the key in it to unlock it. However, it doesn’t seem to bad when locking the door. I’d like to solve this soon so I don't get locked out. It seems to have gone worse over time and is now consistently stiff, despite the door and lock only being a few years old. Is there anything I can do to make the lock a bit looser? Or is it more likely that I need to replace the door’s lock? If anyone has any ideas for what could have caused this, please let me know – as I don’t want any repeats of this in future.

    Hello all I have a hollow bedroom door currently, which I would like to add a lock to. Is this possible to install, or would I need to replace the door for this? Is there any adjustments I could make to a hollow door to enable a new lock to be fitted?
