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. 


Back Orders

If your items are not in stock, we will back order for you. You will always be emailed with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait.


Tax Charges

For orders made from the UK or the European Union, 20.0% VAT is added. All other orders are VAT free and you should click the exempt button to reduce VAT to zero. Overseas Customers may be charged duty from their respective Customs departments, we are not responsible for covering these charges and if you have any concerns, contact your local customs and excise office prior to ordering.


Credit Card Security

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.

View our Privacy Policy for more information on how your data is handled.

We cover all manufacturers guarantees on goods purchased from us, so should you find the product faulty within the manufacturer's stated warranty period please send us an email requesting a returns number.  Any extensive guarantees must have been registered with the manufacturer as per the enclosed document with all products offering extended guarantees.


Locksonline EPS Cylinder Guarantee

We offer a life time guarantee against mechanical fault, this does not include, fault through manipulation or general wear and tear. Should you find the product faulty please send us an email requesting a returns number .


Reaching Us

If you need to reach us, please email us enquiries@locksonline.co.uk, alternatively, you can call 00 44 (0)845 230 0201. Fax 00 44 (0)845 230 0211. Or write to us at Locks on Line Ltd, Old Customs House, Milford Marina, Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire, SA73 3AA, Wales, UK. All calls are recorded.


Special Orders

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.


Key Cutting

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.


Keying Alike

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.


Remittance Terms

We accept all major cards and also we are prepared to trade on pro-forma basis. We always request payment before shipment of any goods.


Force Majeure

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).


Cancellation and Returns

All cancellation and returns details can be found by viewing our Returns page.  Returns cannot be accepted outside of our returns period.


Delivery of Goods

You must do all that you reasonably can to enable delivery or collection to take place within the stated time period. If you delay delivery, or delivery fails because you have not taken appropriate steps ensure availability, we will try to arrange a further delivery attempt within 30 days of the failed delivery. If delivery fails as a result of circumstances within your reasonable control, the cost of any re-delivery shall be borne by you. If we are unable to arrange a date for re-delivery we may cancel your order and refund to you the price that you have paid for the goods, less the failed delivery costs.

Please check your delivery thoroughly upon receipt to check for any discrepancy in items or quantities delivered.  Should you find your order to be incorrect, incomplete or only part-delivered, please let us know within 24 hours of receipt of the goods.

Overseas customers please be aware that your country may apply import taxes or customs charges to release your goods.  This is not included in our shipping quotes and any taxation or charges enforced by customs is the responsibility of the recipient and not LocksOnline.

Upon delivery of the goods to you or collection of the goods by you, the goods shall be solely at your risk and responsibility. Ownership of any goods shall not pass to you until any outstanding balance on your account has been paid in full and we have confirmed receipt of payment.  Should this be the case with your purchase, until any outstanding balances have been paid by you and receipt of payment confirmed by us, you must keep our property separate from your own property, clearly marked as Property of LocksOnline, and you grant us irrevocable license to enter any of your your premises necessary to retrieve our products should your account be overdue.
