Hello, everybody. I am Leon from Enfield, the business owner of Anytime Locksmiths in Enfield. There are some reasons for the call to locksmith service.

1. You have broken lock or stuck key.

2. You are locked out.

3. You want to upgrade the security. 

4. You require a lock maintenance.

It's always the better idea to hire a locksmith when you lose your car keys or keys stuck into the door lock.  Locksmith can fix that issue really well without any hesitation.


Have always managed to break into my cars most times in the past when keys have been locked in the car. Once my wife locked the keys in and we used a wrench to try and break the small rear door window , it must have been reinforced plastic as the rubber gave out before the window. Got keys out and replaced with only a few minor chips in it

 That is very good if you have skills and are lucky enough to get into your car with no damages! Bravo. Actually, in Youtube you can find plenty of videos on how to open your driver's door with a balloon or rope or any other thing. But when you call a locksmith, he can notice some breaches in your car's security. In this case, the aim is to prevent crime than to get in the car. It is of special interest today in the times of COVID-19 breakout when the crime rates have dramatically risen. And I'd say, it is better to call an auto locksmith when you think you lost your keys. In my experience, we had a few cases with drunk people.  But our policy is strict - we open the car only for the owner and only if he has someone sober to drive him home Most owners are mad because I refuse to let them in drunk. However, I hope I do a good thing.

Made me smile, couple of years ago I was driving round in a Ford Ranger pickup with a hardtop. We were on holiday in Devon and after parking in the pub carpark ready to go on a family walk before the pub opened, I closed the rear door with the keys in the pickup, with a knowing sense of doom as the door shut,

The wife is looking at me saying now what do we do. No problem I said, it's a Ford and a third party hardtop, so will be 1980's technology  After borrowing a screwdriver from the pub landlord, it took about 20 seconds to force the lock, which didn't break and you could still lock it with the key. 

The kids now think I'm a master car criminal and break into any vehicle in seconds. I obviously won't put them right and am still enjoying my (undeserved) reputation of coolness.

But for a decent car and a slightly challenging lock, I would call out the locksmith (while the kids weren't watching).

Nice!! Car Criminal Master!!

I fish I was that lucky! Once I got complaints about my fast work! Incredible!

I came on Volvo lockout, the young man seemed to be OK, I checked the ID, opened the lock in seconds and done. The young was surprised, he was like "I won't pay for one -second work".  I was stunned.  Then I caught - he was the next day after heavy drinking- so I closed the door, opened it again, but did it longer that time, and he paid me, anyway murmuring something.
