My experience comes with 23 years working within the NHS on the commercial arm and 2 years with a private company within the domestic sector. Teignlocks has now been trading for three and a half years and has branched out to local authorities, schools, surgeries, letting agents and local businesses.

About Teignlocks

I specialise in MPL'S and MPL gearboxes (multi point locks) as theses are fitted to every PVC or composite door. I also supply and fit any type of sash lock, din lock, Scandinavian lock, rim lock, code lock, patio door lock, window locks, euro and oval cylinder locks, aluminium lock cases, furniture locks, safe and ware house locks, garage door locks and bolts, night latches and cylinders.
I also do gain entries for customers that are locked out or have left the keys inside the property. This is a 24 hour service that is provided by Teignlocks.
I have a long history of lock fitting and diagnosing problems and being able to sort them, which is why i decided to set up my own business to promote and offer my services to the general public and commercial businesses alike. The services that I offer are very unique as I will only replace parts that need to be replaced and I will also explain to my customers what the problems are, why they have occurred with this type of lock or mechanism, and why it needs to be replaced.
I have gathered a wealth of experience with many different types of locks over the years and was caught up in an organisation that did not appreciate the skills that I had developed so it was time to move on and this is how Teignlocks was started.

  • Locks replacement

    A very quick response to my job. Tim contacted me and we arranged a day for the job to be done. I supplied photos of the locks to Tim to save time. On arrival to do the job, he quickly assessed what needed doing and got on with it. The job was completed very satisfactory and tidying up was carried out. I would recommend Teignlocks to anyone who asked.
