A question on a lot of handy persons minds is will I do it myself and save money or should I hire a qualified tradesman to do the job. Hardware stores displaying a large array of locks and lock furniture are visited by people who are either undecided or serious about buying installing their own their own locks. Advertising on lock boxes often try to affirm how superior the lock is over other locks how easy the lock is to install D.I.Y.
Combined with all the advantages and positive attributes of the lock put forth to the potential customer by sales staff, the person is soon convinced and makes the necessary purchases of locks and sometimes necessary tools for installation.
Having operated as ABC Locksmiths Adelaide, over the course of years I have had many call outs from customers and home maintenance contractors resulting from lock and lock hardware D.I.Y. installations and or attempted repairs gone wrong.
These jobs involved attempted installations of locks resulting in ill-fitting or broken locks, doors jammed shut, locks installed upside down latches and locks the wrong way around, holes incorrectly placed, lock parts and springs incorrectly assembled or missing altogether.
Instead of a cheap alternative to hiring a professional locksmith the D.I.Y. has become a very expensive exercise for the customer, as well as possibly negating any guarantee originally offered by the lock supplier.
We are one of Adelaide Locksmiths most trusted and experienced locksmiths with proven methods and techniques when it comes to professional installation and repair of all types of locks and door hardware.
