Locks 4 less (Why pay more?) 

Beware of the many Rogue Locksmiths sitting at the top of Google results advertising a charge of £49.00! These in most cases are claiming to be local, They are very hard to trace and report when things go wrong and you end up being charged hundreds of pounds for a simple lock out. I have first hand experience sorting the mess and damage caused by these cowboys.
