What To Look For When Hiring A Locksmith in Melbourne

toplock reception

When people find themselves in need of a locksmith, the situation is usually urgent, which doesn’t allow for a lot of time to shop around. Most clients looking for a locksmith in Melbourne do so while stranded outside of their homes, businesses or cars and are all too happy to accept the first bid from […]

A roof burglary St Kilda – better to use Ebay

toplock reception

We did complete change of locks, windows, deadlocks…. even a skylight lock on a house in St Kilda last April as the owner had had their keys stolen.  Not only had they had their keys stolen… they had had almost all their valuable possessions stolen as well. By someone they had invited into their home.  […]

First time North Fitzroy renters forgot about security

toplock reception

For a lot of young people when they first move out of home the wake-up calls come fast and often. The dishes don’t do themselves. Neither do the clothes. The bathroom is not self cleaning, the garbage does not take itself out and rent is just one of many bills that has to be covered. […]

A stashed key in Hawthorn – a runner runs the gauntlent

toplock reception

We attended premises in Hawthorn this week to rekey all locks following a burglary. This was not your normal forced entry burglary. No doors had been kicked in, no windows broken… The owner wasn’t even entirely sure at first that she had been burgled let alone when. Soon she realised that she had been burgled […]

A few screws loose in Hawthorn

toplock reception

We attended a house in Hawthorn this week – it wasn’t an emergency callout but the owner advised she was having a lot of trouble locking her front door so we came out to have a look at it. In most cases a deadlock will be replaced well before it wears out as a new […]

Deadlock re keying in Balwyn

toplock reception

We had a callout in Balwyn this week from a tenant who wanted their locks replaced.  They had not had any problems with a former flatmate or anything like that… they just wanted to ensure their home was secure as the locks had not been replaced in a long time. We have several real estate […]

Antique furniture lock replacement in St Kilda

toplock reception

Not all of our callouts are emergency lockouts and we got a really interesting job this week in St Kilda.  Our new client was placing an antique sideboard up for sale and had received a valuation less than what she had hoped for because the sideboard was missing keys.  All attempts had been made to […]

Door kicked in – back lane access in Melbourne CBD

We attended a Melbourne CBD break-in this week that provided a good example of why your home security is only as strong as its weakest link. The occupants were only 5 doors down at their local having a game of pool and a beer whilst they were burgled. No one heard or saw a thing. […]

The dirty key lockout in Balwyn

We attended a Balwyn lockout this week where the occupant got just a little bit too clever with his emergency key stashing. Previously he had hidden an emergency key under a pot plant…but he was always worried that was the first place a thief would look. So instead of putting it UNDER the pot plant, […]

Holiday Burglary in St Kilda – an over full mailbox

toplock reception

If you are going away on a holiday, it’s a good idea to get someone to collect your mail, cancel paper deliveries etc.  Why? An overflowing mailbox is a red flag to a would-be bugler that no one is home and has not been / will not be for some time. We attended a break-in […]
