Do you need locks on your internal doors?
Alexandra Locksmiths were called by a customer in Palmers Green, London N13. The lady had been renting out a bedroom in her home to a lodger. She was a working mum and always left before the lodger in the morning and came home after her in the evening, she had never had a problem with the lodger and said that she hardly ever saw her.
Sounds ideal? Until the morning that our customer decided to work from home. She returned home after dropping her children at school to find the lodger in the hallway dressed in her clothes and the lodger had even taken the time to pick out a matching handbag also belonging to our customer. She was horrified at what she saw and just froze in shock.
After throwing the lodger out our customer felt very vulnerable in her home and asked us to fit internal locks to her bedroom door and also to her children’s bedrooms.
We fitted a Union 3 lever mortice deadlock to both of the doors. This type of lock looks very discrete.
