  1. They are half the price Count Muppet has listed if you have a direct account and place a carriage paid order. I was speaking to Andy Mace and there are many changes taking place with regard to this type of key and bike locks so key blanks may be easier to obtain in the coming months. It will be intersting to see how things work out and what changes actually take place.
  2. We are still doing plenty of watch batteries. I was told some of the local Timpsons are being furloughed from today with the shops closing, not sure if there is any truth in this but we have been exceptionally busy today.
  3. Your quoting a post from 2013, a bit random.
  4. https://www.aldridgesecurity.co.uk/silca-3493-silca-key2-cylinder-blank-to-suit-keya-cylinders.html
  5. It would make sense for 3 years accounts so they can work out an average then calculate how much you may be entitled to. We only ever closed for 7 weeks from March 23rd and the £8000 busines grant (8k after your taxed) so our trade has not really changed much in the last year (we are very very lcuky we do so much trade work). I wish the rest of you good luck and hope you all get what you should have in the first place. Insurance companies alway seem to default to how can we avoid paying.
  6. We use Silca ASEC1 and have never had any issues with Asec.
  7. https://www.aldridgesecurity.co.uk/ronis-0047-ronis-aj-cj-key-blank.html
  8. No different card altogether. Silca card 4541 for my Triax Pro. Keys are listed as Platinum 3 star 10 pin.
  9. Genuine blanks required available form Davenports.
  10. Plenty of boats round here so seen these many times.
  11. It is if you change the first 2 letters to SF101 it's a perfect match.
  12. What limits do you have to meet monthly/yearly and are the blanks freely available no matter how many you decide to cut ?. What is the initial order requirements.
  13. Silca Delta multicopy that is what we use. https://www.aldridgesecurity.co.uk/silca-0503-silca-d813905zb-delta-mc-multi-copy-manual-key-machine.html
  14. We supply keys and locks to just about every local factory/NHS, sole suppliers of all keys,locks and door closers etc to 2 main hospitals/2 major oil refineries/shipping/Transport/all the estate agents/Local Council/Supermarkets and housing associations. We are the only ones local than can cut all high security keys that none of the others can. That is why there are so many in such a small area. We also now supply one of the biggest online padlock retailers with all there duplicate keys. Thats one of the main reasons i have just ordered one of the new Silca Unocode series F900 fully
  15. Everyone is open in our town which is suprising as there are now 16 key cutters within 5 miles and i was told yesterday that will soon be 17. But we have had one of the best starts to the new year even with lockdown the trade sales of padlocks and keys are booming.
  16. Abus plus keys fit great although you do need to trim a lot of the first cut side. We charge tham at £9.50 + vat and do hundreds every year as we are the only ones prepared to cut them locally. We advise every customer before cutting that the locks are crap and a key costs more than the lock but they still have them cut as they are nearly always fitted on alleyways or horse fields.
  17. Agree with Ponsaloti the locks are 70mm discus padlocks in a box fixed from inside so insert broken blade carefully then turn to open lock then fit with a new padlock. I use Abus but you can use any discus padlock you like. They are reasonably simple to do, we have changed many over the last few years mostly for builders and plasterers as the locks fill up with all the crap they throw in the back of the vans. Always advise lubricating once a month and NEVER use WD40.
  18. Original blanks only as far as i know, you can order to code online from a L4V agent but they are not cheap.
  19. Open unless your local council visit's and says you cannot. Ours are more than happy for us to stay open but we are the main key and lock supplier to many industries and the NHS.
