Tradelocks Open Weekend- Meet the Legends

November 14, 2014

Sometimes, even the experts need a little guidance. This is why it is imperative that you seek assistance from world-renowned, respected professional locksmiths who have a wealth of expertise in the industry if you are to hone your skills and perfect your overall performance. If you are looking for specialist advice, offered by highly-respected and revered industry leaders, then come to Tradelocks’ 1st Open Weekend, as it is guaranteed to be an unmissable event.

On Saturday 22nd November and Sunday 23rd November there will be detailed demonstrations and informative talks hosted by such giants as Martin Pink, Chris Belcher and Pat McGinn, as well as the opportunity to take advantage of some fantastic deals which are not available online or over the phone. These one-off prices are completely exclusive to attendees of the Open Weekend, and all you need to do is register, empty the van and stock up on a whole host of top of the range, affordable security equipment.


Martin Pink (pictured above), is a world-renowned locksmith and auto-locksmith who has had a significant and influential impact on the way in which modern-day advanced locksmith and auto locksmith tooling operates. Voted the LASM Locksmith of the Year in 2011, he has not only trained association locksmiths in the United Kingdom, but has also attended prestigious shows and events in China, Canada, Japan and Las Vegas.
He will be offering technical advice on the handling of tools, especially Auto Locksmith equipment, so if you have any pressing queries then just let him know as he will be more than happy to lend a helping hand.


Chris Belcher (pictured right) has developed some of the most innovative, original and sought-after domestic locksmith tools which professional locksmiths utilise on a day-to-day basis. He will be giving talks on lock picking, mortice opening and how he created and cultivated the unique, easy-to-operate UAP Zero Lift Cylinder System.

All of his unbeatable tools have been specifically designed in order to make opening mortice locks and safes simpler and quicker, hence why products such as the Universal 7 Gauge Safe 2-in-1 Pick Set and the Chris Belcher Taper Pin Set for Safe Repairs are proving to be extremely popular amongst those in the know. Being a professional himself, he knows exactly what is required as regards how to pinpoint issues and potential hazards which are associated with standard, run-of-the-mill tools and upgrades them accordingly.



Pat Mc Ginn (pictured above) has been in the locksmith industry since 1985, so knows all the tricks of the trade. After training in America, he has since become a leading household name when it comes to Genuine Lishi lock opening. If you want to learn more about how to tackle issues concerning auto locksmith and Genuine Lishi tools then he will be able to furnish you with all of the requisite information you need. So if you are intending on making an appearance at the Tradelocks Open Weekend then you can direct any questions his way.



And remember, if you pre-register then you get a goodie bag on arrival, completely free of charge, which includes:

  • 1 x Genuine Lishi T-Shirt
  • 1 x Genuine Lishi Pen
  • 1 x Exclusive Lucas USB Stick
  • 1 x Genuine Lishi Bag
  • 1 x Genuine Lishi Baseball Cap

There are also a number of free workshops which you can attend if you want to find out a little more about how to use car opening tools or impression mortice locks effectively, as well as demonstrations which primarily focus on operating Genuine Lishi cut-to-code auto keys and cloners. You can also learn how to re-pin UAP cylinders and open uPVC doors, and both commercial and domestic clients will benefit from the advice which is on offer.

So why not head on down to Prestwich in a couple of weeks and meet the legends face-to-face? There will also be a free bouncy castle and games for the kids as well as a delicious hog roast and beer tent for the grown-ups, which means that everyone is catered for.
