Who would have thought the sun would be out, shorts and t shirt worn and it being Goose fair weekend. But that’s just what we got last weekend and we did enjoy it.
Booked in to do a lock change on a old Methodist church in West Bridgford we had already put some work in on the bench in the workshop as the customer had requested that the four locks on the front of the property would operate with a single key – keyed alike.
To do this we took four locks and changed the levers inside three to match the forth one. For this we used union strongbolt BS the locks were all 3” and a combination of 2x deadbolts and 2x sash locks, we also cut a few extra keys. The locks in the doors were a missmash of different brands with some not BS so we hasps a little work to cut out before fitting.
New handles were fitted as well to the sash locks – hoppe nylon in a very fetching grey to match the doors leaving a very tidy and easy to use set of doors.
More locks around the building were also changed and a extra Thumbturn dead lock installed to a exterior door – last job of the day was to remove a steel gate lock and fit a new version before we could call it a day.
A old version of a Lockinox steel gate lock had been fitted but the bolt had been damaged in the past so we had ready a new version ready to replace but this old lock didn’t want to play nicely and decided it would put up a fight before it was retired to the scrap bin.
A lot a WD40 and some gentle persuasion finally got the Lockinox to part company with its long time partner and start the journey to the scrapyard in the sky.
This job has been a joy to work on and we wish all the best to the business who are now making it there new home, we look forward to what developments they have planned in the future for the space and if they go ahead for a few pop up comedy nights we will defiantly be paying them a visit.
