Lock Change in Hornchurch


Are your locks secure enough? Sticky locks, locks that don’t allow you to shut the door properly, and locks that are hard to open. All these things (and more) are signs it’s time to change your locks, upgrading them to better and more secure options.

TMB Locksmiths provides all the lock services you could need if you are in the Hornchurch, Romford and Upminster areas. Whatever problems you’re experiencing, we can identify the best solution and provide a no-obligation quote for lock replacements.

We also provide lock-changing services whenever required, for businesses, private residences, garages, and any other lockable buildings that require them. This might be needed after a burglary or vandalism, or simply when you take ownership of a property where the former owners could still have keys to it.

Below are just a few types of locks that we can change or repair.


This type of lock is usually found on wooden doors. It requires a key and can be locked from both sides. It is essential that a lock conforming to British Standards BS3621 is fitted on all external doors of this type.


This type of lock is ‘latched’ on the inside of the door and has a small button which can be used to hold open the latch. This type of lock is usually used as additional security on a door as it is not as secure as a mortice deadlock.


This type of lock is commonly found on upvc or composite front doors or patio doors. This type of system requires a lock cylinder with at least 5 pins. With ‘cylinder snapping’ becoming more widespread, if you have this type of lock, it may be worth considering upgrading to high security 3 Star TS007 cylinder locks.


We provide a high-quality service for all types of locks and doors. We can supply and fit Yale, Abs and Chubb locks among others, and we’ll be delighted to supply no-obligation advice, too.

Some problems with existing locks can be repaired and don’t require a replacement. However, if you can fit new and better locks, it makes sense to consider it. Better locks are always coming onto the market, and you can easily enhance the security of your property simply by replacing your existing locks. In doing so, you shouldn’t have any problems using the locks to get access to your property, or to secure it whenever you leave.

If your key keeps getting stuck in the lock or you’re finding it hard to turn it, don’t wait until the key breaks off, leaving you stuck outside. Instead, make sure you call TMB Locksmiths to get advice on what to do. Sometimes, a simple fix is all that is required, but even if your locks are on their way out and need replacing, we’ll ensure the job is done quickly and efficiently. You don’t need the worry or hassle of wondering how good your existing locks are when you can call TMB Locksmiths to solve the problem at an affordable price.
