A word of advice from us would be to dont buy very cheap lock picks as they will not help you in picking locks and of course dont buy the very expensive ones simply because when you first start you may snap some picks whilst learning.

When your looking for Anti Snap Locks in Ormskirk please be aware that they are not all the same, to ensure that your fully protected against snap attacks you need 3 Star Euro Cylinders as a minimum as these have been tested to withstand lock snapping attacks, however here at Locksmiths Ormskirk we suggest you only use 3 star Diamond Grade Cylinders which is the highest standard attainable in the UK at the moment, an example The Brisant Ultion is one such euro cylinder.

Here at Lockkeys Locksmiths Ormskirk we spend a lot of time working on Upvc doors as they make up over 70 percent of all doors in the UK. However we do a lot of work for Churches and every now and then are asked to work on locks like the attached picture.
The lock was put on the door for the opening of the church in 1879 and is still working correctly unfortunately the only key was lost and so we were tasked to opening the door and sourcing 2 new keys to be cut for the lock.
