We provide a speedy 24 hour locksmith Leith service no matter what the time of day or night. As stated above we can be at most parts of Leith in 15 minutes. The only thing that can delay us getting to you prompt is traffic.

For example if we go out to a Yale lock we will try slipping the lock open with a price of mica card. If this doesn’t work we will try picking the lock open: either by hand or by using a pick gun. If the above 2 methods fail we can put a special tool and a mirror through the letter box and open the lock from the outside.
