Master Locksmiths Association membership is your guarantee of security, integrity and professionalism!

"South Yorkshire Police recommend the use of Master Locksmiths Association members as they are licensed approved companies, endorsed through a strict vetting and regular assessment procedure to ensure quality of service and provide peace of mind to the end customer. We look forward to a continued liaison with Keyhole Services" Kevin Burrows, Doncaster Crime Reduction Unit


Keyhole Services is one of only two members of the Master Locksmiths Association in the Doncaster area and one of only five in South Yorkshire. We have been full and active members of the MLA since we established our business in 1988.

The Master Locksmiths Association (MLA) is the leading trade organisation for the locksmithing industry.

In the absence of Government based licensing (meaning that anyone can call themselves a locksmith) our membership of the MLA provides you with peace of mind through it's licensing scheme.

MLA licensed locksmith companies, who undergo strict vetting proceedures (including criminal record checks, regular inspections to ensure quality advice & service, training to ensure that best advice is offered etc.), are able to provide advice based on knowledge and experience, recommend products that are fit for purpose as well as providing professional installation and maintenance services.

The benefits of using an MLA licensed locksmith include -

  • MLA is the leading trade organisation for the locksmith industry.
  • MLA promotes standards of conduct, practice and materials within locksmithing
  • MLA provides peace of mind to the customer throught its licensing scheme, in the absence of Goverment based licensing
  • Following a change to the law on the vetting of locksmiths the only way that locksmiths can get important criminal record disclosures is via membership of the MLA.
  • High standards are maintained by employment of qualified locksmiths, strict vetting and regular inspections. Training is also provided by the MLA to ensure that members are constantly up to date with the latest industry developments.
  • MLA is recognised as the authoritative body for locksmithing by authorities such as the Police and the Home Office  etc. 
  • Channels of arbitration exist to fully investigate any complaints or disputes should they arise and the MLA advises or takes any necessary action depending on the outcome
