Located in southern Bedfordshire, near Dunstable and Leighton Buzzard, Totternhoe is an ancient village with a rich history. Totternhoe Knolls has served as a fort for numerous civilizations, including the Romans and Normans. During the Norman period, Totternhoe Castle was constructed in a motte-and-bailey design, most likely during the years of the Anarchy, although only the mound remains today. Behind the knoll, there is a large chalk quarry producing Totternhoe Stone and modern lime kilns.

The 13th-century parish church of Saint Giles is also situated in Totternhoe. At the time of the 2011 census, the village had 561 homes, housing 1,172 individuals. In addition to the church, there are several farms in the area, as well as Totternhoe Church of England Academy, a small lower school.

Totternhoe is home to two public houses, The Old Farm Inn in Church End and The Cross Keys in Middle End. Another pub in Church End, The Bell, was converted into a private home in approximately 1992.

Mortice locks, which are commonly referred to as 5-lever locks, are the primary locks on many doors )Internals & External doors) and are inserted into a pocket on the side of the door. Insurance companies often require that an appropriate mortice lock be fitted to provide coverage, with the most common standard being BS3621. You can easily check if your lock meets this standard by examining the faceplate for the BS3621 stamp, along with a date and the British Standard Kitemark. 

We can recommend alternative locks that meet the BS3621 standard and our locksmiths carry these locks with them at all times, so we can replace your old locks with ease and efficiency. Our skilled professionals use specialised tools and techniques to ensure a smooth installation process, so you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having a secure and reliable lock without any unnecessary hassle. To replace an Insurance Approved 5 lever Deadlock, simply arrange an appointment at a time that suits your schedule with LU Locksmith services by calling this number: 0800 707 4203.

There are several reasons why a lock may fail, including:

  1. Wear and tear: Locks are mechanical devices that can wear out over time. The constant use of a lock can cause its components to degrade, failing the locking mechanism.
  2. Damage: Locks can be damaged by physical force, such as an attempted break-in or vandalism. Additionally, exposure to the elements, such as extreme temperatures or moisture, can cause a lock to fail.
  3. Improper installation: If a lock is not installed correctly, it may not function properly or may fail altogether.
  4. Key problems: If a key is worn, bent, or damaged, it may not work correctly with the lock, causing it to fail. Similarly, using the wrong key or forcing the wrong key into a lock can cause damage and failure.
  5. Internal problems: Internal problems, such as broken springs, pins, or tumblers, can cause a lock to fail.
  6. Lack of maintenance: Lack of maintenance can cause a lock to fail prematurely. Regular maintenance, such as lubrication, cleaning, and adjustment, can help prevent lock failure.

It’s important to have any lock failure addressed promptly by a qualified locksmith to ensure the security of your property.
