Locksmiths in Cardiff win Lock Opening Competition

Mete Hilmi of Mr Locks Locksmiths in Cardiff South Wales is awarded the coveted Master Locksmiths Association Annual Lock Opening Champions shield for 2014. This contest is designed to test the lock opening skills of Master locksmiths throughout the South and West of the country, and the winner is the contestant that is able to open the most locks in a 10 minute time slot. These consisted of lock cylinders, padlocks, cabinet locks and mortise locks, with a mechanical code lock thrown in for good measure. This year was a particularly close contest with Nigel Tolley of Discreet security Solutions, coming a close runner up. Martin West of Avon Security in Amesbury also deserves a mention for winning the shield on several previous occasions. Would also like to thank SKS for sponsoring this year’s competition. We now look forward to next year’s competition with great anticipation, but for 2014 at least, the MLA Lock Picking Champions Shield resides in Cardiff South Wales at Mr Locks Locksmiths.Mete-Hilmi-Mr-Locks-Locksmith-Cardiff-Lock-Opening-Champion
