Dudley Safe Opening Stolen Keys

Dudley Safe Opening Stolen Keys

We were called to open this Grade 1 Dudley safe at a shop in Manchester after the keys had been stolen in a robbery. The lock was picked open and replaced providing them with a new set of keys.

The advantage of picking the lock rather than drilling is that there is no mess to clean up, no repairs required and the safes integrity is not compromised. If you need a professional safe locksmith in Manchester or anywhere else in the North West of England then please get in touch.

Milners Holdfast Safe Stolen Keys

Milners Holdfast Safe Stolen Keys

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.

Fort Knox Under Floor Safe Stolen Keys

Fort Knox Under Floor Safe Stolen Keys

We were called last night after a break in at a property in Formby in which the keys to this Fort Knox safe had been stolen. Unfortunately during the robbery the keys to another safe had also been found and the contents taken but they had been unable to locate this safe which was well concealed. We picked the safe lock open so that they could retrieve the contents to prevent the thieves from being able to return and use the stolen keys. Due to family circumstances the safe was no longer required and so we were able to keep the safe lid for refurbishing. This is always welcome as these locks are no longer in production and are very difficult to source.

Church Safe Burglary Damaged

Church Safes

We were called to a church in Wallasey after thieves had broken in through a stained glass window causing thousands of pounds worth of damage but fortunately got away with nothing of any value. They did however attempt to break in to a couple of safes preventing one of them from being opened with the key and stealing the keys to a smaller safe. The larger safe in the main picture was quickly fixed so that the key could enter the lock and open it up. The smaller safe shown below was picked open and re-keyed so that the stolen keys will no longer operate the lock.

We were also asked to open the lovely old warded rim lock on the church door shown below for which they key had been taken. As professional locksmiths we were pleased to oblige and after making a tool on site to operate the mechanism we opened it without any damage.
