Protect the things that matter to you with Codelocks

We all have different things that are precious to us. That’s why we’ve made it easy to protect everything that’s important to you with our easy-to-use mechanical locks.

We talked to some of our customers to find out how Codelocks’ locks give them control on access and peace of mind in their homes.

 

My shed has become my retreat.

Most people have been spending more time at home as a result of the pandemic and there has been a surge in the trend for sheds, summerhouses and outbuildings which give homeowners extra living and working space.

Nick from Ealing enjoys spending time on DIY projects, but recently he has moved some furniture and a fridge into his shed along with his collection of tools.

“It’s pretty busy in our house at the moment with everyone working and studying at home,” says Nick. “Spending an hour here and there in my shed gives me a bit of peace and quiet when I need it.”

To protect the equipment in his shed, and provide a deterrent to burglars, Nick decided to fit a lock. However, as he tends to be in and out of the shed all day, Nick was also looking for an option that would give him easy access to his garden retreat.

Nick came across the CL100 Surface Deadbolt and PINGuard™ by Codelocks, which is a great option for keeping sheds, gates and outbuildings safe from intruders. Once the access code has been entered, the bolt is moved manually using the outside knob and it’s easy to open from the inside.

“The addition of the PINGuard™ by Codelocks weather shield to the lock helps to protect it from all weathers,” Nick explains. “It’s great to know my shed is secure and my belongings are protected when I am not using it.”

I don’t have to worry about my grandchildren playing in the garden.

Children love having the freedom to play outside, however a garden can be full of hidden dangers.

Joe from Norfolk loves looking after his young grandchildren, but he was nervous about leaving them to play near his pond.

“I love my pond and the wildlife which has made its home there,” says Joe. “But the children could easily fall in, so I arranged to have the pond area fenced off with a wooden gate.”

To make sure his young visitors would not be able to open the gate, Joe had a CL50 Mortice Latch fitted. The mini mechanical lock is compact and easy to use, with a secure code to control access.

“The grandchildren now have the freedom to enjoy the garden and I have peace of mind they are safe,” says Joe.

It’s good to know my home office is secure.

Many of us have had to adapt to working from home, and some fortunate people have made the move from the kitchen table to a home office in the garden. This was the case for Mandy from Weymouth, who had been working remotely for an accountancy firm since the start of the pandemic.

“My work involves managing confidential financial data,” says Mandy. “I wouldn’t want that to get into the wrong hands. I also use a number of laptops, devices and a printer to carry out tasks.”

To make her home office accessible, Mandy installed a CL400 Marine Grade lock which is tough enough to withstand the elements in a coastal area, as it has been salt spray tested*. The lock has a sleek black finish which enhances the building’s appearance.

“I can now enjoy working from home in my garden office, knowing that if I step out to make a cup of tea, I can pull the door shut and my Codelock acts as a deterrent to any opportunistic thieves,” says Mandy.

I don’t have to go to the post office to retrieve my parcels.

The rise in online shopping has resulted in more door step deliveries and in turn prompted many households to find a storage solution for their deliveries.

Janet from Coventry is no exception. Janet runs an online crafting business and often needs to order materials to her home.

“I receive many parcels every week containing the items and accessories I need for my crafting,” says Janet. “But I can’t always open the door when a delivery arrives, as I am busy running webinars and podcasts for my customers.”

To keep her deliveries dry and temporarily out of sight, Janet purchased an outdoor cupboard, and fitted a CL160 mechanical lock.

“I give my regular delivery companies the code for the lock and they leave parcels inside the cupboard,” explains Janet. “The lock has a QuickCode which means I can change my code easily on the door, giving me complete control over the people who use it.

“With my outdoor storage space, I can keep working no matter how many parcels arrive for me, and I know they will be protected from the weather and from being stolen until I can get to them.”

My horse gets the right care.

Angela from Ludlow was keen to make sure her pride and joy, two year old Hector, is cared for as she does not live on the site where their horse is stabled. “I wanted to find a lock that would be weatherproof for the stables and tack room, and I also wanted to be able to give friends and family access to visit when I am not around, so Hector has lots of company.”

Angela had a CL500 Marine Grade lock installed at the stables, which is specially designed for harsh weather conditions, and ideal for rural and agricultural settings.

“The lock is perfect. I don’t have to remember to bring a key each time I come and see Hector and I can quickly give friends and family access codes too if they are passing by the stables,” says Angela.

With a wide range of cost-effective mechanical locks that are easy to fit and simple to use, there’s a Codelocks access control solution for everyone’s need.
