Unusual enquiries about a lock problem in Adswood are received from time to time by Nimbus Locksmiths. Some of them have to do with old decorative door locks, especially mortice locks. The lock requires a pocket (the mortice) cut into timber doors. To change or repair the lock without damaging the door is tricky. We find these locks in exterior and interior doors. However, they are seen in old antique furniture like wardrobes, trunks and chests for valuables. When people ask us if we can open these old locks or replace them we assure them it can be done. If it is a fine piece of furniture like a trunk, you could chop the lock out to reveal the hidden treasure but there is no need for that. Just call us.
