Covid 19 is affecting businesses and people all over the globe. It’s impact is already emerging rapidly.

Limiting physical contact with hard services, rethinking the flow of customers and people into premises and new ways of entering buildings are just the tip of the iceberg.

If you have to change a lock or a whole security system now is the time to possibly replace it with an upgraded version.

Since the Covid 19 Lockdown from the 23rd of March you may be wondering if locksmiths are open and working.

The short answer is “Yes”, excluding some shops depending on their location, but most of them offer a mobile service for essential services.

Which services are classed as essentials?

  • 24 Hour Emergency Locksmith Call Outs
  • Lockouts if locked out of house
  • Front and back doors not locking

All of the above services can be provided by your chosen locksmith including myself in Belfast and the surrounding areas.

There are some services, that might be considered non essential, but nevertheless less they might be essential for you. Here are some of them:

The following are types of locksmith work that may be considered as non-essential during the current COVID-19 lockdown.
