Your Locksmith For Security Upgrades

Having out of date door locks and window security can leave your property vulnerable to break-ins and robberies.
With most criminals being opportunistic, having weak-looking locks can be an invitation. 
That’s why we offer security upgrades to existing windows and doors in the Tunbridge Wells area.


Wooden Doors

For most wooden doors a British Standard 5 level mortice lock will comply with most insurance regulations. 
With wooden doors, it is always recommended that a 2nd lock be fitted or a deadbolt be added to the door to prevent it from being kicked in. 



For windows, the main recommendation are multipoint locks. 
Having a lock that secures the window at multiple points to the frame is stronger and more effective at repelling break-ins. 
Coupling this with Shoot Bolts which are made from steel the window secure and only vulnerable to being smashed

Make sure your windows and doors are up to date with the latest security standards


Police currently recommend a 3-star standard for your door cylinder and a 2-star rating for your hardware giving you a 5-star rated locking system.
Below are the recommended specifications for most types of door and window.


PVC Doors


PVC doors are recommended to be fitted with ABS locks, these are also known as anti-snap locks.
Snapping a lock is a technique used by burglars and is a simple way to gain entry via PVC doors.
ABS locks prevent this technique from being used.

Simon replaced two locks for me at the start of the week and what a great job he did. The parts had been previously ordered and came very quickly. Simon arrived on time. He was efficient and very professional in completing the job. He was friendly and obviously took pride in his work. Everything was tidied up and the locks both worked with ease. I am very happy with the results and would use the service again. The shop on Camden road is a treasure trove of everything that a good locksmith should offer and is very central. Thank you so much.

What a great place. From safes to locks to door handles, keys cut, safety chains, I have used it all from here!! I have used Simon for over 22 years, Simon has changed my locks, delivered 2 safes, repaired back door lock, new security locks, etc etc. totally reliable, punctual, and a first-class service. Never would I go anywhere else, 2nd to none. Even the staff in the shop are amazing, friendly and can’t help enough. 10/10 service…… Hope you will be here forever Simon and the Team.!!



When locks have been installed by Simon, they work.
When keys have been cut by Simon – they work.
You can’t say that about all of the locksmiths in town !
You couldn’t wish to deal with a nicer chap either.
I have been a customer multiple times on a professional and personal basis and wholeheartedly recommend Simon to all my clients. When keys have been cut from other firms, they regularly have to be re-cut; at Osbornes you know they get it right first time !
