Unlock Your Earning Potential with a Lockfit Franchise

When you join the Lockfit team you are gaining a business partner that will provide you with all the tools needed to launch your successful franchise quickly and efficiently. In addition, start-up costs are low, we provide you with the equipment and training – and no locksmithing experience is necessary.

Hit the Ground Running with Lockfit

One of the biggest challenges for any independent locksmith is marketing your business and generating sufficient work. You will have access to several national partners, with job requests in your area sent to your territory. You will also benefit from local marketing activity and a business name which enjoys a 9.93 overall rating on Checkatrade with a 9.98 for Courtesy and 9.97 for workmanship which sums up our mission statement of professionalism, quality and reliability.

Joining a franchise brand brings you the opportunity to join the 93% of Franchises that were profitable in 2018 (source BFA/Natwest survey 2018) and can be less risky than starting your own business from the start without the support of a Franchisor.

The Lockfit Difference

  • A comprehensive training programme prepares you to deliver a highly skilled locksmith service to both domestic and commercial customers.
  • The licence to use the Lockfit brand and logo which is a recognisable and strong brand that will get you noticed and gain you customers.
  • Your advertising is critical to the success of your business, we like to dominate rather than compete.
  • Personal branded stationery, uniforms, operating manuals, job sheets, downloadable resources and trade/supplier accounts.
  • A comprehensive tool and equipment package, including quality power tools & specialised locksmith equipment.
  • Comprehensive stockholding to enable you to commence trading with confidence.
  • A 24-hour business if you wish, marketing and technical support are available so you are never on your own.


You will be given your own designated territory within which to build and develop your business. We can also allocate you a much larger call-out territory which will provide additional, non-exclusive locksmith work if available through our network of national account customers.

What Does the Lockfit Training Involve?

Your comprehensive training takes place at a designated training facility. After your training is complete you will be a certified Locksmith. Our trainer will assess you at each stage, to ensure that you are confident before moving on to the next stage.

After completing the training, you will also be offered the opportunity to spend a few days with a qualified locksmith for some hands-on training with real customers.

As a Lockfit locksmith, you will be qualified to open, pick, drill, replace and repair all manner of locks. You will also be trained in all the secrets of the trade, including bypassing mechanisms, broken key extraction, how to cut replacement and duplicate keys, install digital locking systems, and repair & replace uPVC locks.
