Review Comments
I Have used Sandy at Thistle Locks & Alarms a number of times in the past twelve months from tricky car key cutting to alarm advise to fitting and have found him to be extremely helpful and informative, nothing is too much bother...
The job he’s just completed was fitting a new alarm system and sensors, including fully up to date technology and within current guidelines at times which suited us and with No mess or fuss and I am more than grateful for the work he’s done..
Great guy..

Sandy repaired an original door lever system on our old house.
I also purchased solid brass furniture in keeping with the original door. Fabulous to get these items locally instead of trawling the internet and not sure what will arrive!!
I was delighted with the results and will use Thistle locks every time.

Review Comments
The main lock on our front door failed, due to age, at the very end of the day. We managed to get the door locked (just) but needed to get the broken unit replaced. Sandy was able to come and look at the lock the next day and had enough spare parts to get us working again straight away. He returned a week later with all the proper replacement parts and we are very happy to have a door that works and locks properly again (it is obvious it had been failing for some time now that the new parts are in place). Sandy maintained social distance (due to COVID19), was on site exactly when he said he would be and completed the work to a high standard. I have no problem recommending him to other people with any lock problems.

Sandy responded to my query immediately on the phone and was round later that morning exactly when he said he would be.

I needed a lock replaced on a uPVC patio door as I had lost the only key and Sandy promptly got on with the job. It soon became clear that the job was not as straight-forward as hoped but rather than moan or admit defeat, Sandy found ways of getting a solution and in no time had completed the task brilliantly with no impact or damage to the existing door.

I've had other locksmiths look at this task and decline it due to not having the expertise to do it or not wanting to take on a job which was slightly out of the ordinary.

Thistle Locksmiths were recommended to me by a neighbour and I would have no hesitation recommending them and would hire them again in the future.

Broke the lock on my front door, couldn't get out, have an elderly relative in the house so we had to get it fixed. Couldn't get in touch with the original installer so was in a bit of a panic. He came to the house and had the lock mechanism replaced and door adjusted in quick time, he was quick and kept to all the PPE and distancing requirements. Absolute saviour. Would highly recommend. Many thanks.

Managed to lock myself out, looked for a local locksmith and found Thistle Locks and Alarms.
After a short wait and about 20-30 minutes work I was back in the house.

Delighted with the speed, friendliness and efficiency of the local tradesman.

Would use again and highly recommend this business.

Andy called today to look at a problem lock. He was able to advise me how to resolve the problem, with no charge from him. Dealing with Thistle Locks and Alarms was very straightforward. Everyone I spoke to was courteous. They were able to come out quickly and Andy also called to let me know he was on his way.

Sandy came to our house at short notice and repaired our alarm system. It's such a pleasure to deal with a company that is so professional and courteous. Sandy even gave us cost saving advice on the ongoing service requirements for our alarm system. I cannot recommend this company high enough.

Very Very Grateful to The Thistle Key Shop in Inverkeithing. Came to my home advised me against the work that I thought was needed, even though it resulted in his financial loss, and gave me free of charge excellent security advice. This shop saved me money and stress. Wonderful to know such good service still exists.

Thank you very much.

I arranged for a home alarm to be fitted with Thistle Locks and Alarms in Inverkeithing and a house survey was arranged very quickly. Sandy from Thistle Alarms very quickly surveyed my property and gave advice on the type of alarm which would be sufficient for my needs and the total cost for the equipment/installation. Sandy carried out the installation in a professional and timely manner and explained the operating details once completed. I was also assured that I could call them at any time in the future should I require more advice/assistance. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Thistle Locks and Alarms to anyone looking for an alarm system at a competitive price.

I contacted Thistle Locks and Alarms as I had an issue with a door lock that need to be fixed as soon as possible.
Speaking to Sandy on the phone he immediately understood what the issue was and what was required to fix it. He managed to find a slot that day for my repair and completed the repair with no issues.
Sandy provided excellent and very friendly customer service and I am more than happy to recommend Thistle Locks and Alarms.

The service from the gentleman could not be better. My 88 year old Mother has dementia and thought the window was a door to get out. We didn't have the key for the window so took the handle into the guy and he managed to match the key.
