Security Advice

If you’re locked out, want to change your locks or need to upgrade your security etc. then you should call your local MLA Licensed Locksmith. You can find the details for your local MLA member here and we recommend you put their number into your mobile phone so you have easy access to it in case of emergency..

As there’s no government based licensing scheme for locksmiths, anyone can advertise as a locksmith irrespective of their background or competency. This has obvious serious security concerns when you think about the work that a locksmith does! For this reason the MLA runs its own licensing scheme for its approved companies. MLA approved companies have been vetted, are regularly inspected and have to employ a qualified locksmith (somebody with an exam based qualification as opposed to somebody having simply been on a training course).

By using Master Locksmiths Asssociation approved companies, customers can rest assured that the tradespeople they are using are trustworthy and of the highest quality.

Never scrimp when it comes to security. How much are the contents of your house worth? How much do you value you and your family’s security at? It’s not worth trying to save when it comes to locks etc so make sure you have good quality, professionally fitted locks to your property.
