We were called out to an apartment building in Dudley, privately rented by a young couple from a local landlord, they’d lost their keys and couldn’t gain entry. Using our lock picking expertise we unlocked the door for them (also known as a non-destructive entry). Once inside it became apparent that the lock that was fitted was out of date and posed a fire threat and due to fire regulation updates, the landlord should have had the lock replaced for safety during a fire. The gentleman gave me the contact details of the landlord and `i called him up and explained the situation to which he immediately agreed with a replacement pock being fitted to new standards (a thumb turn on the inside of the lock so if there should ever be a fire you don’t need to scurry around looking for keys) and also asked us to check the other flats in the building. We arranged for a consultant to visit the following day and sure enough, all the 15 flats needed updating so overall the couple losing their keys may well have saved somebody’s life in the long run.
