Recent storms across Sydney have caused suburb-wide blackouts with some residents without power for over a week. We've been responding to work requests from residents who have cars and personal items trapped inside their garages due to loss of power to the electric motor and no keys for the over-ride lock.
Now is a good time to check you have keys for your over-ride lock, which should be located somewhere on the door of the garage or on one of the external walls nearby. These locks are connected to the emergency rope that disables the motor's locking system and allows the door to be manually lifted.
There's a wide variety of override locks so you can send Core Locksmith Services a picture via email or text for a quote to see if we can make keys or replace the lock.
