Foundation for Quality Facade Construction

When purchasing a pin lock, pay attention to the SKG logo (Foundation for Quality Facade Construction). Many of our locks are SKG approved.

The Stichting Kwaliteit Gevelbouw seal of approval, is also referred to as the SKG seal of approval. The SKG seal is also known as the star seal. There is a logo with 1, 2 or 3 stars. These stars indicate the degree of burglar resistance:

  • one SKG star: standard burglar resistance
  • two SKG stars: heavy burglar resistance
  • three SKG stars: extra heavy burglar resistance

Stars are awarded after doing several tests. During these tests, the SKG employee pretends to be a burglar. This so-called burglar tries to use tools such as hammers, screwdrivers and even heavy grinders, to get a lock open.

Does the “burglar” get the lock open right away? Then the lock does not get a star. Does it take longer to open a lock? Then the lock gets one, two or three stars. A pin lock SKG only has one or two stars. Three stars are not awarded to pen locks.

Stud locks approved by the Foundation for Quality Facade Construction are always equipped with a locking plate and a locking bowl.

Tips from the locksmith

Preventing a problem is better than solving a problem. We are happy to provide tips for the use and maintenance of mortise locks:

  • If the pin lock does not work, your first reaction may be “lubricate with oil.” Don’t do this! The thickness and amount of oil can cause the lock to do just the opposite: not work. For the maintaining mortise locks there is special lock spray. Lock spray is much thinner and more watery than oil and therefore better for the pin lock.
  • The key to your pin lock won’t turn in the keyhole. It is recommended not to force the key in this situation. In doing so, it is more likely that the key breaks. In that case, you can call Locksmith 365. But prevention is better than resolution.
  • Replacing a pin lock must be done very accurately. It is better to hire a locksmith if your mortise lock needs to be replaced.

Hi! Yesterday I slammed the door in the evening and left the key inside. I called and ordered this master. Then I read the reviews here and was surprised how many negative reviews there are) I called them and said that I didn’t want to fall into their trap if they tried to scam me. Fortunately for me, there was no deception, everything was very adequate, the master was very pleasant and polite. Very nice price for services. Everything was done quickly and without damage. When I asked why there were so many negative reviews here, he replied that he had just bought this company and is building a reputation. Don't be afraid to reach out to these guys. Everything was very clear and professional on their part. I recommend!

The cost of drilling the lock was extremely high. I paid 220 euros, excluding taxes, just for a hole in the lock. I didn't even request a new lock, but if I had, it would have cost even more. The service was quick, with the technician arriving at my home within 40 minutes. They managed to open the door without damaging the frame, only the lock. The technician was also friendly, which is why I am giving them a higher rating. However, I still feel that 220 euros for drilling a lock is excessive, even for a company. It would have been more reasonable if the cost included a lock replacement.

Sleutel aan de binnenkant van de deur laten zitten, stom! Ze stonden gelukkig zelfs op zondag binnen 20 minuten voor de deur en Jeffrey maakte onze deur snel en zonder schade open. Super blij mee, ik zou ze zeker weer bellen.
