Meet our team

Hi, my name is Andrew Wood or 'Woody' as my mates call me and together with John Carroll we are here to offer you advice and of course to offer our services as locksmiths. We are a small business based in the Canterbury and Medway areas.

I have always had a fascination with locks, the time and the thought that has gone into creating a lock, a lock that is designed to protect you, your loved ones and your personal belongings. That's a great invention. I get very frustrated with car thieves and burglars. I have always worked hard for the things in life and to think someone can just pop round when I'm asleep or out at work is very frustrating.

When we get called out to a lock out, I get so much satisfaction helping people get back to normal, the relief when the customer is back in their home and back to normal. When attending a break-in it can be very disturbing and quite upsetting to see there is so much emotional damage done rather than the items that have been stolen. To get these people back to normal and be more aware of the security risks. My simple advice can make so much difference.

Securing homes & businesses

Crime wrecks lives and it is a great feeling to think we could help prevent some of what is a rapidly increasing problem.

The other side of the lock is if it has been designed not to be opened unless you have the key. Well, this is a personal challenge to see if I can open it without the key and find its flaws and weak spots. I use the knowledge to improve the object it was protecting or keeping locked, this principle can be used on a property, etc. This knowledge can then be used to now flight crime and educate my customers in how to step up their security, making them feel safer and protecting their belongings.
