New Locksmith Career

Russell Maslen now runs a successful locksmith’s business

Russell Maslen now runs a successful locksmith’s business

If you are looking to start in a new career in Locksmithing here is a recent article that was featured in the Daily Mail that might be of interest to you.

It was written by Sarah Harris

RUSSELL MASLEN retrained as a locksmith after the brewery he worked at for over a decade closed down. The 42-year-old from Reading, Berkshire, enrolled on a course with the UK Locksmiths Association three years ago and launched his own business, Jak In The Locks.

Mr Maslen, who worked on the production line at the brewery in West London, says: ‘My employers gave us all funds to retrain, which was really good of them.

‘I took the locksmiths’ course and really loved it. I still get a lot of support from the UK Locksmiths association. I know they’ll always pick up the phone if I need them.

‘Being my own boss is great, and I wish I’d known the advantages of being self- employed a long time ago. You work when you want and decide your own hours.’

Mr Maslen, who is married to Vicki, 41, and has two daughters, Hannah, seven and Gabrielle, ten, says: ‘This job gives me time to spend with the children, like take them to school. at the brewery I did 12-hour shifts and had already left for work before they got up, and they were in bed by the time I got home. When I was doing nights, I was asleep during the day, so I hardly saw them.’

He adds: ‘I’m a puzzle man and like crosswords and word searches, and to me, being a locksmith is like solving a puzzle. You have to work out what you’re going to do and how something works.’

Locksmith recruits must be practical and personable and — above all — honest, because they will need to command the public’s trust.

The UK Locksmiths Association two-day Locksmith Course covers the essentials needed to set up as a mobile locksmith, including rim cylinder and mortice lock picking and fitting,key cutting,  garage locks and window locks, as well as advice in starting a business. a third day will provide those taking the course with further in-depth information.

Meanwhile, there are hundreds of providers across the country enabling people to learn skilled trades in other areas including decorating and plastering.

New Career Skills has trained over 7,500 students who have changed their lives after enrolling on courses to become plumbers, electricians and home energy advisers.


Drill bit offer

November 25, 2013 by Adam Jackson

We have an offer for all you UKLA members on a new type of drill bits.  We have tested them out and they are similar to the Dewalt Metal Extreme 2 bits that are used for drilling out cylinders.  We would not recommend them for drilling out anti-drill plates on Mortice locks so just another alternative for drilling out Cylinders.


The Offer:


1. The ad – which is 20% off any purchase when code TRADE20 is entered in the ‘coupon’ section at checkout


2. We will give a free tub of CUT-IT (value £12.50 trade price) to any UKLA member who spend £50 or more between now and Jan 31st 2014 (they will need to highlight in the checkout comments box that they are a member of UKLA)

New website / Members area

September 18, 2013 by Adam Jackson

As you can see we have a new website that we have been working on for some time now.  We hope you like it.

We are updating the members pages which includes every members profile to include not just the county you are trading in but also the town / village.  This makes it easier for  potential customers to find their local locksmith rather than phoning around all the members in the County.

We are in the process of adding your picture, this is time consuming but we hope to have it done soon enough.

Thanks again for your support
