The Key To Your Future

We offer ongoing support to help you build a lasting and successful business you will be passionate about.

Locksmiths are always in-demand and a highly rewarding trade. With an excellent earning potential, there has never been a better time to consider a vocation in the locksmith trade!

LockFit makes entry into the locksmith industry easy…

LockFit is a professional uniformed Locksmith company in the UK, specialising in both commercial and domestic locksmith services. A partnership with LockFit gives you a business opportunity in a sector that has been around for over 100 years and is always in demand.

In the UK there are:

  • 25 million homes
  • 5.4 million small and medium sized enterprises

In 2015 there were:

  • 785,000 incidents of domestic burglary
  • 214,433 incidents of non-domestic burglary

As these statistics indicate, locksmiths can reach many thousands of customers: from the homeowner who has locked themselves out to business owners looking to protect their merchandise from thieves.

The package: what’s included in the franchise?

  • A comprehensive training programme prepares you to deliver a highly skilled locksmith service.
  • The licence to use the LockFit brand, logo, telephone numbers and marketing systems.
  • A protected territory, supported with a well-structured marketing campaign from our partners.
  • Training in sales and marketing.
  • Personal stationery, uniforms, operating manuals, job sheets, downloadable resources and trade/supplier accounts.
  • A fully fitted van with Lockfit colours and logo (on competitive finance).
  • A comprehensive tool and equipment package, including quality power tools & specialised locksmith equipment.
  • Comprehensive stockholding to enable you to commence trading with confidence.


Once you have been accepted as a LockFit franchisee, 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, which is passed to us because of our reputation.

What does the training involve?

Your comprehensive training takes place at a training facility based in the West Midlands. 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 onto the next stage.

After successfully 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 “tricks 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.

The LockFit van: your mobile workshop and billboard advertisement

Your van is fully fitted out and in Lockfit colours and logo, and equipped; it’s your mobile workshop and billboard advertisement. Packed with all your quality tools and stock, LockFit locksmith branded work wear – you’re ready for business.

At LockFit, the right image is to the success of your business, and you can rest assured that our branding is a sign of quality throughout our industry.

Becoming a LockFit franchisee

“I have spent over 20 years as a car sales executive, I initially heard of LockFit through an internet search. I joined LockFit in 2018 because I wanted to be own boss, set my own hours, I did not want somebody else telling me what I must do and when. The initial training was brilliant a spent 1 week in the training centre with a locksmith that has over 25 years’ experience, all my training was hands on so I could learn and get a feel for every part. I would say to someone looking to get started as a Locksmith to talk to the team at LockFit. If you want to be your own boss and you enjoy hands on practical jobs, then it’s a fantastic opportunity!!
