Locksmithing is a rare but essential trade. Locksmiths are needed for everything from key duplication, to business and residential security needs, automotive lock repair and supply of keys, and safe opening and servicing. Locksmiths not only cut keys and sell locks, they also install, maintain, repair, and pick locks, and upgrade all forms of mechanical locks. Over the years locksmithinghas also grown to encompass electronic security solutions.
A fully-qualified locksmith undertakes a 4-year apprenticeship for a Certificate III in Mechanical Engineering (Locksmithing). Additionally, you must hold current security licences and other industry certifications.

Car key technology began to change in the mid-1990s as manufacturers started to introduce not only keyless entry but also transponder immobilisation systems. The inbuilt security of these systems has increased the security of cars dramatically, but has also increased the cost and complexity of these keys. While the cost of keys varies depending on car make and model, Argyle Locksmiths Goulburn can in most cases offer a more affordable solution to replace your car key than the car manufacturers. Please contact us today for a quote.

That depends on the type of lock you wish to lubricate.
- Pin tumbler locks, such as residential door locks, work best with graphite powder as it doesn’t create surface tension inside the lock like you may get with a wet lubricant.
- Wafer locks, such as car, roller door, or letterbox locks, are best served by a wet lubricant such as Inox or Rost Off. Do not use a water dispersant like WD40 or sewing machine oil. The former dries out the lock leaving a chalky residue increasing lock issues, and the latter creates surface tension within the lock slowing down the springs and moving parts while also attracting dirt and dust.
- Sometimes lubrication isn’t enough, and your lock needs a service. If you lubricate it and its function hasn’t improved, it may be time to contact us.
