Terms & Conditions
Making A Purchase
Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our online store, and click on any items that you wish to buy and put them into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on "Checkout" and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to satisfy the order.
We accept credit card payments, bank transfers and cheques as payment methods for completing your order.
We accept Visa, Mastercard, Switch and Delta . We do not charge for any item until it is ready to ship. Back-ordered items are usually not charged until they are shipped. You may send your credit card information however you wish, providing it is safe to do so, ie via the online checkout or telephone.
The processing of your payment and acknowledgement of your order (including sending you an email confirmation) does not constitute legal acceptance of your order.
We know of no documented cases of credit card fraud using our shopping system over the Internet. All credit card numbers are encrypted in the software when the order is placed using 128 bit encryption. They are only decrypted after they reach our computer. They are not held in clear text on any web site. We use SSL security encrypted protocols where you will see the padlock symbol and in the address bar https:// when you are entering your card details.
We use Paypal Secure Checkout facility which offers customers and additional Security Level in the event of a problem occuring, we offer a fair resolution to any Customer Complaint or Grievence believing although the transaction may not have gone as smoothly as we had hoped for we aim to satisfy the Customer in the hope that they will return and purchase from us again in the future.
Items that are ordered, that are not kept in stock are deemed to be a special order. We would have to make a specific individual request / order from the manufacturers. If the products that you are requesting or sourcing are deemed to be special orders, then regrettably once the order / contract has been agreed we are in no way able to have these items returned. Please note that under certain circumstances delivery charges incurred through special orders will be forwarded to the end purchaser.
The very large range of keys that we supply with very few exceptions are cut individually to customer's requirements. We are therefore unable to accept the return for credit of keys that have been incorrectly ordered, or are surplus to customers' requirements. This also applies when ambiguous information is given at the time of ordering. At our sole discretion, we may exchange stock keys returned with a stamped addressed envelope. Where confirmation orders are sent not suitably marked, duplicate orders must be paid for.
We cannot guarantee the possibility of keying alike different locks to each other. Should you wish to purchase different locks on the same keys, we can often do this for you but unless stated on the page that this is possible, please check with us before ordering.
Unless otherwise stated, when ordering locks keyed alike, you will receive one set of keys for the keyed alike group. This is because the process of keying alike involves changing the inner levers or pins of the locking products to all match one lock out of the entire group. This means the keys that would have come with the now altered locks, are not usable on the locks any more. So if your chosen lock states it comes with 2 keys, you would receive 2 keys for the whole group if selecting keyed alike. Due to the nature of keying alike, disassembling and reconfiguring the internal lever arrangements, this may invalidate any standards or certifications associated with the lock as standard.
Should you need more keys for each lock in a keyed alike group, be sure to order extra keys when placing your order to grant the total amount of keys required. There will be a key-cutting charge for this.
We shall have no liability to you for any failure or delay in supply or delivery or for any damage or defect to goods supplied or delivered hereunder that is caused by any event or circumstance beyond our reasonable control (including, without limitation, strikes, lockouts and other industrial disputes).
