When the key was lost to this Milner safe in Lytham, Lancashire we arranged to do the safe opening early evening to fit in with their work schedule. With the safe opened there was no need for replacement keys to be made at the moment but we will be back to this in the new year when the client is ready.

This is the second time we’ve worked on this Milners’ door in the past six months. This time a set of keys had been stolen from the pub in Southport and they required the lock to be changed. We rekeyed the lock for them and provided new keys to prevent the old ones from working.
We were called to rekey this Milners Holdfast safe at a church in Shrewsbury, Shropshire after a set of keys were stolen. The job was a bit further afield than we regularly travel but the customer had been unable to find anybody closer who was willing or able to do the job so we were happy to help them out. We changed the lock to prevent the previous keys from working and cut a large number of extra keys to be redistributed to the autorised keyholders.
