MLA Approved Locksmiths are Vetted Inspected Qualified
UK's Largest Trade Association For Locksmiths

As there’s no government based licensing scheme for locksmiths, anyone can advertise as a locksmith irrespective of their background or competency.
This has obvious serious security concerns when you think about the work that a locksmith does! For this reason, the MLA runs its own licensing scheme for its approved companies.
MLA approved companies have been vetted, are regularly inspected and have to employ a qualified locksmith (somebody with an exam based qualification as opposed to somebody having simply been on a training course).
By using Master Locksmiths Association approved companies, customers can rest assured that the tradespeople they are using are trustworthy and of the highest quality.
Never scrimp when it comes to home security. How much are the contents of your house worth? How much do you value you and your family’s security at?
It’s not worth trying to save when it comes to locks etc so make sure you have good quality, professionally fitted locks to your property.
Locksmiths also specialise in keys and locks for vehicles so can help with lost car keys, providing replacement car keys, opening locked vehicles and even give advice on motorcycle security.
