A recent job in Yallambie

The Lock Guy has been servicing residents of Yallambie for over 18 years with security solutions for their homes.

Yallambie being a growing and popular residential suburb that has doubled in population in recent years is nestled between Greensborough and Lower Plenty.

Today we met with clients who had just moved into the area and were wanting to upgrade their existing locks with a recode to cancel out old keys from working and the addition of locks for added security on all external doors including Front, Rear, Side and Garage Doors.

Upon meeting this young family and discussing their needs and security concerns, we recommended replacing their existing handle sets with the Lockwood 530 Entrance Set as seen in the image below.


We installed a Lockwood 530 Entrance Set


The Lockwood 530 Entrance Set offers high quality and security and can be installed in all residential and commercial situations.

In addition, we added the Lockwood 005 Deadbolt to the Front, Rear, and Side External Doors.

This particular deadbolt also offers high security and a safety release function to prevent being locked in.

We also offered an effective security solution with the addition of the Lockwood 680 Patio Bolt on the family room and lounge external sliding doors keying them alike also to the Front, Rear, and Side Doors.

And we didn’t forget about the shed or gate – these were secured with our ever popular Abus 83/45 Padlock which was also keyed to the House Key. 

In regards to Window Security, the windows already had good quality Lockable Winders on them we simply had to cut Keys for these as they didn’t receive any keys for the windows in the handover of the Property.


The outcome was great, customers happy


This created an overall secure outcome for this young family in their new home.  We also rekeyed all existing Locks to work on one key only.
