Deadlocks Installed

Domestic Security

At 24h Melbourne Locksmith, we reject the popular notion that “if they really want to get in, they will get in.” This is absolute rubbish. The installation of quality locks on strong doors and windows around your home dramatically decreases your chances of being broken into. Having a fancy alarm system that calls you or CCTV that records the thieves is all well and good, but these things only alert you AFTER you have already been broken into.
An adequate level of physical security around your home is the difference between your house getting broken into and the one across the street. Thieves are opportunistic and will exploit weaknesses where they exist. Don’t leave any weaknesses and they might rob your neighbour’s house instead of yours. Tough luck for them, but at least YOUR possessions and family are safe. Good quality locks on solid doors and strong frames are your best defence against home burglary.

Lock Supply and Installation Service

We supply, install and repair all types of deadlocks for your home or office. The locks shown on this page are the specific brands and models we use in standard installations. There are many different makers of seemingly the same thing, but not all factories or manufacturers are the same. We know, use and trust these brands and models and are intimate with the quality of their manufacture. We also know their limits when put under stress. For this reason we can vouch for these particular locks, although there are many good brands out there.

Warranty Issues on Locks from Bunnings. With us there are NO issues.

If you buy a lock from Bunnings and fit it yourself, the lock comes with a warranty from the store. But who is going to remove it and take it back to the store for them to repair or replace it in the event an issue does arise? And what are you going to use to secure the door in the meantime if that happens?
When you use a professional locksmith like us, you may pay a little more on the initial supply and installation of your locks, but you can be assured that we will save you time, money and hassle in the long term because our installations are always 100% professional. You know there won’t be any installation issues affecting the warranty, and in the unlikely event there is a problem further down the track, we will take care of all the logistics like diagnosing the problem, removing the lock from the door and providing an interim replacement.
When we supply and install a lock, we are responsible for the warranty. We deal with you, and then we deal with the manufacturer. When we supply and install a lock, in the unlikely event of any warranty issues, we will simply replace it like for like, and send the original back to the factory.

Non Standard Doors, Metal Frames, Outward Opening? We take care of that for you.

Some doors are not standard and may have metal frames or outward opening doors and other anomalies in the installation. These variations have only a slight effect on the price, ($10-$20) but information like this is crucial to the selection of the correct locks to ensure the correct installation first time round. Our locksmith will ask you all the right questions to determine what you need.

Which colour would you like? Dull Silver, Shiny Brass, Antique Bronze, Purple with Pink Polka Dots?

Most locks come in all the standard finishes like Chrome Plate, Satin Chrome and Polished Brass, and there are even some that come in Black, Brown, Antique Bronze and even more. If you see a lock that you like but it’s not the right colour or finish, chances are that the manufacturer makes it in the colour you want. There was a time when Lockwood made their locks in any colour in the Dulux colour scheme. Give us a call to ask if your preferred colour is available.

Our Prices Includes Installation, Keying, and Clean Up.

There are 2 prices next to each lock; one is for the supply and installation if we are not already on site, and the second price is for any subsequent locks or after we are already onsite for another reason or job.
The price given is the TOTAL PRICE and includes supply, professional installation and clean-up, and keying and extra keys, at your home during normal business hours and including GST. There’s no service call or hourly rate, and no extra fee if you want another key.

Multiple Locks and Bulk Discounts

If you want more than one lock installed, the price of the second or third lock decreases substantially, because of course we are already there at your home. We can do great prices on quantity, as well as keying them all alike for no extra charge. When comparing quotes, make sure to read the fine print and ensure that all the little extras like keying and extra keys are included. Call our emergency locksmith now and give us a chance to beat our competitor’s quote. You will be pleasantly surprised.

The Most Common Locks We Supply and Fit

Deadlocks and Deadbolts

Commonly fitted to the front and back doors, these locks are essential for an adequate level of security around the home. There are a few different types and configurations, but the thing that makes them all “Dead”Locks is their ability to be lockable from both sides. This eliminates the possibility of a thief breaking in through a window and removing the TV through the front door. The deadlocks on display here are all stronger than the average door which means that under attack, the door will break before the lock. This is not the full range of our dead locks, it is just the recommended minimums. If you have need of something better, give us a call to have a chat about your needs.

Gainsborough Lever Tri Lock

These are commonly seen on new build houses in large estates. They are aesthetically pleasing and have multiple functions, such as passage set and deadlock, but can be insecure if not used correctly. This lock needs very unique holes drilled into the door to be fitted correctly which makes the use of another type or brand of lock in its place a difficult proposition. You will almost never hear a qualified locksmith recommend fitting one of these from scratch, but usually only to replace an existing faulty Tri-Lock.

Knob and Lever Sets

These can be used on the internal doors or as secondary security devices in support of the main deadlock on an external door. They should not be used alone on external doors because they can be easily opened by hand from the inside at any time. There is an endless range of styles of knob & lever, as well as colours and finishes. If you don’t see the one you want here, give us a bell to ask us, I’m sure we’ve got the one you want out the back somewhere.
