Here at Owl Locksmiths and Security, we have to be ready to deal with all types of jobs.
One such task recently undertaken in Polzeath was a mortice lock conversation where the customer required an upgrade for his insurance policy. The property was a very nice country mansion but all the doors and locks were different.
With some doors being Upvc with multipoint locks and the rest being wooden with UK key mortice locks, we suggested that we convert the mortice locks to hold insurance rated high security anti- snap euro cylinders. By doing this we were then able to pin all the cylinders to one key which saves the customer walking around like a jailer.
Once the old locks were removed and the hole for housing the locks was enlarged, we had to convert the key holes to take the euro cylinders. The original handles had separate rose plates for the key and the handle but when we convert the locks, it is often not possible to fit similar as the original holes have to be moved which makes it impossible to re secure them, therefore, we generally fit standard full plate handles as in this photo which completes the task.
