What's it like being a locksmith?
It's time for an update and since we often get asked about our work while out and about in Manchester here's a brief answer. Well, at the moment we're enjoying the dry spell as a lot of our work is outdoors getting our customers back indoors! It's part of a locksmith in Manchester's job description to get wet! This morning we were busy with 3 lock changes in Gorton for a young family moving in to their new house. Smart move to change the locks in your new property of course. When a Manchester Locksmith does get a break... well at the moment we are enjoying the slanging matches in the run up to the General Election. And we wouldn't be doing our civic duty if we didn't remind our valued customers.
How to stay secure this summer - Leaving your house unlocked is an own goal
It's hard to believe that summer is coming with all this damp and dull weather that we're experiencing in Manchester at the moment. But, we're trying to be optimistic about the weather along with England's chances in Euro 2016, it's tough... but we won't let it dampen our spirit! Should summer return though, the team at M18 Manchester Locksmiths would like to offer some advice on protecting your home during the summer months.
If you've got the game on in the living room with the TV blaring make sure that the rest of the house is secure - that you've locked the front door and have closed the windows in any unoccupied rooms. A significant proportion of all burglaries are just opportunistic - where thieves spot an open window or unlocked door and are in and out in a matter of a few minutes or even seconds. In fact, many times a burglar will see something on display such as a laptop or tablet and just grab that. Make especially sure that your car keys are kept out of sight. Never leave them on display or somewhere they can be easily snatched like on the kitchen table by the open back door or hanging up near the unlocked front door.
If, like many, you are moving house during the summer months give us a call and we can explain how to secure your new home. Top priority would be to change or rekey the existing locks as you can never be sure who has had access to the keys in the past and who may have a copy of the keys to your home. We can also perform a security check on the property to see if your locks are up to British Standards and meet your insurance policy requirements. We'll check for soft points like window locks, weak door frames and door panels and more.

Home Security Survey
If like me you follow the local news and are depressed at the crime rates don't despair! There is something you can do about it!
First thing to do is call M18 Manchester Locksmith and ask us about a home security survey. We can recommend all sorts of home security measures, some of which won't even cost you a penny! And since we are experts at fitting and upgrading all household security, where better to start?
We've been avidly watching the latest series of the BBC's Break-In Britain. Bit like a busman's' holiday. In this clip - Making the house secure - you can see how some small steps can make your home much more secure, including tying up your bins!
Did you read your home insurance small print? Did you know that many policies across the UK require you to have British Standard locks - BS3621. M18 Manchester Locksmith fit British Standard locks so if in the terrible event you are robbed at least you will be compensated financially and not lose out on £1000s because of a cheap lock!
Door and frame guards also are good extra security ideas - they fit around mortice locks and striker plates in the frame to give extra protection. This makes it much harder for someone to force the door open.
Sash Jammers are great for providing that extra bit of security. They can also serve as a deterrent to would-be burglars as these window locks are visible from outside your property signaling that this is one place not to be messed with! They can also be used on doors for extra security.
