What is a pin lock?

Stud locks are secondary locks. Accessory locks are additional locks for the front door. A pin lock front door is a form of burglary protection. The pin lock is opened by a large long key.

Mortise locks are suitable for wooden, obtuse doors. The mortise lock is a mortise lock. This means that the lock will be installed in your door. On doors made of metal and plastic, the pin lock installation is not possible.

How do burglars break down your door?

This is how burglars break down your door

Most front doors only have a lock in the middle of the door. These doors are prone to burglary. Burglars then target only the lower half of the door. The door is kicked open so far that a crowbar fits between it. The main lock fails in this situation because it is under tension.

Are you interested in additional security at the top and/or bottom of the door? Then have pin locks installed by our locksmiths. This will keep burglars out.

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 have the SKG seal of approval.

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:

1 SKG star: standard burglar resistance
2 SKG stars: heavy burglar resistance
3 SKG stars: extra heavy burglar resistance

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

Peg lock price

The pin lock price ranges from €35.00 to €200.00. These are mostly the mortise locks with an SKG logo. A normal inexpensive mortise lock is just as effective as an expensive mortise lock. For mortise locks that are cheaper than €20.00, make sure that the mortise lock has an SKG logo.

Assembly of a plug-in pin lock

Mounting a pin lock is a precise process. If a mortise lock is installed inaccurately, it increases the likelihood of malfunction of the mortise lock or your door. An installation error ensures that burglars have a chance to get in. In addition, the lock does not last as long.

Is a pin lock safe to keep burglars out? Yes indeed! The pin lock is mounted at knee or eye level.

Is my pin lock broken?

The lock should work both with the door open and with the door closed. If your pin lock is giving problems in both cases, one of the following is going on:

  • The pin lock is defective or worn.
  • The door or frame has sagged.
  • The key is worn out
  • The key is badly copied.
  • The key plates are incorrectly mounted.
  • The hole in the door is too narrow for the key.
  • The lock locks by twisting the cylinder.

Does the lock work with the door open, but not with a closed door? Then the cause is a sagging door or frame. In this case, the key bowl must be moved.

Does the lock not work both with the door closed and with the door open? Then the cause lies with the mechanism itself. The solution to this is to treat the lock with lubricant.

Is this still not the solution? Then the cause is a defective or worn-out pin lock.

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.
