Window lock replacement.
“I needed a lock replaced on my sons bedroom window asap, as my son is 4yrs old, the window is three stories up and he kept opening it. I called LBP Locksmiths Brighton and the guy arrived within the hour and replaced the lock in less than 10mins for a really reasonable price. I am so grateful I can sleep soundly again! Thank you.”

LBP Locksmiths Brighton attended a job this morning (17/7/15) where the customers key had broken in their back door lock.

The customer had spoken to a few other locksmiths before choosing LBP Locksmiths Brighton. The reason he chose us was because the other locksmith firms he spoke with said he’d need a new lock, whereas LBP Locksmiths Brighton said we should be able to extract the piece of broken key and cut some new keys.
Upon our arrival we extracted the piece of broken key, cut a new one and sure enough the lock worked just fine. The issue here was a weakness in the key where it snapped, not the lock.

LBP Locksmiths Brighton were called to a property in the Kemp town area of Brighton on Saturday afternoon 11/07/15.

When she shut the back door the car deadlocked itself, locking her daughter in the car and the mum out of the car.

Latest feedback for LBP Locksmiths Brighton;

Installed union 3g114e deadlock.
“Service excellent. Full confidence in this company and total precision to all work carried out.” – Customer in Brighton, 24 June 2015 – Unfortunately this particular customer had a bad experience with the ‘cheap locksmith’ she originally called to fit this lock. Whilst their prices were cheap the work carried out was very poor, the customer was left with a scrap of paper as a receipt and when she called to say the lock wasn’t working properly he shouted down the phone at her. It goes to show, cheaper companies who don’t display their working addresses on their websites should be avoided, even if they rank high on search engines.

Please be careful before choosing your locksmiths… look out for the following; Do they display their address? Can you leave feedback? Do they display team photos? Is their website extremely similar to that of other locksmiths in other cities in the same google position?
