How does it work?

Find a Locksmith allows the user to search for their local locksmith or key cutter. Users will be able to select the service type they are after i.e. house key cutting:
They will then be able to search by entering their town or post code (which will search for all relevant locksmiths within a set radius).
The user can then use advanced search options, and select if they wish to only display 24 hour locksmiths, or only display ‘TL approved’ members. Both of these options are explained in detail below.
Once they click ‘Find Now’ it will display a list of all the local locksmiths in their selected criteria. Users will be able to scroll down the list and view all the search results. They have the choice of calling you directly by clicking the ‘click to call’ button, or they can click on the ‘Click for working hours’ button which will load up your personalised profile.

Users will be able to see a whole host of information about you, including working hours, addresses, websites etc. You can edit all of the information that is displayed about you through your profile. To find out how to do this:

What are TL Approved members?

Due to the locksmith industry in the UK not being regulated, to make users less worried and more confident about who may be turning up to their door, we have introduced the ‘TL approved’ locksmith scheme.

Every ‘Tradelocks Approved’ member is vetted by a member of the Tradelocks team to make sure you are a qualified and competent locksmith. We will look at how long you have been trading, locksmith assoications you are a member of, as well as any locksmith training courses you have attended.

Once we are confident that you are a professional and competent locksmith, we will upgrade your account to a ‘TL Approved’ member, which has several benefits:


 Each TL member will be listed above any non ‘TL Approved’ member for any search. This will put you ahead of your competitors, and give you greater visibility and exposure.

● You will have a ‘TL Approved’ badge shown on your profile.

● Find a Locksmith users are actively encouraged to search for and call ‘TL Approved’ members, as they can be assured that all ‘TL Approved’ members have the essential knowledge and skill to carry out the job.

● You will be sent a ‘TL Approved’ van sticker that you can display on your van to give yourself more creditability.

How to apply to be a TL Approved member:

Underneath your company details on the ‘Your Locksmith Map Details and Settings’ page, you will see the following section:

To apply to become a TL approved member, simply fill out as many details as you can so that we can verify that you are a full trained trading locksmith.

If you are a member of a locksmith association, you can tick the box and fill out the association name as also your membership number for verification. If you are a member of more than one association, you can add all the additional associations by clicking the ‘+ Add a new association’ button.

Unless you are a member of the Master Locksmith Association (MLA), the most important section to fill out is the training courses you have attended. In this section, you can fill out who the course was organised by, what the course topic was, the date of attendance and also upload your training certificate. Again, if you have attended multiple courses, you can click the ‘+ Add a new course’ button and add as many courses as you wish.

Once you have completed each section, click the pink ‘Submit Application’ button.

This will then be reviewed by a member of the team. If we have any questions on your application then we will contact you for clarification.

Once verified your account will be upgraded to a ‘TL approved member.’ You will not need to do anything else.

You will then be able to see the below:
