Free Locksmith Training at the Tradelocks Open Weekend!
After the success of the first Tradelocks Open Weekend in 2014, Tradelocks are opening their doors once again and have brought back this fantastic event, making it bigger and better than before!
Focusing on free locksmith training, as well as offering some unbelievable deals, this very special training weekend is on Saturday 27th June - Sunday 28th June 2015 at their warehouses in Whitefield, Manchester!
David Jennings, MD of UAP Tradelocks, explains, "We want to give locksmiths an experience like no other exhibition they have been to before. We will be joined by some of the leading locksmiths in the industry, including Martin Pink and Pat McGinn, who will be on hand to give hands on training on live vehicles, demonstrate the fantastic Genuine Lishi NightVision picks and decoders, including the brand new VAG2015 pick and lock, as well as showing you exactly how to programme a flip key using KeyDIY key remote generators! Exclusive KeyDIY Water-Proof Advance Remotes and the KeyDIY Bluetooth Controller will also be on show!"
"Keyline will be flying over from Italy to demonstrate their range of fantastic key cutting machines and accessories, including the Ninja Laser, Falcon, Carat and the brand new Ninja Laser Dark, exclusive to Tradelocks in the UK! Keyline will also be showing off Megamos Crypto Cloning software, which is the World's first ID48 cloning system! You will be able to clone your own ID48 remote using a live car!"
There will also be a range of domestic locksmith workshops focusing on uPVC door opening using the fantastic Tradelocks uPVC Door Opening Kit, as well as demonstrations on mortice lock impressioning.
David continues, "We want you to come down to our event and have a great time, as well as learning brand new skills along the way. Just like last year, we will be providing free food and drink to everyone who comes down. We open up again our early bird free bacon butties, and the Hog Roast arrives around 12 Noon with the FREE beer tent opening up at the same time! Stay late on Saturday and join us for our evening barbecue with our FREE bar and music, and our FREE back to your hotel or airport taxi service!"
Tradelocks haven't stopped there either, and have now made it even easier to get there and back from the event in Manchester!
They are putting on free transport to and from Manchester Airport for anyone travelling by air, and taxis to and from Piccadilly Train Station if you are coming by train! Also free transport to and from the local hotels is being laid on for anyone coming to the event throughout the day and into the evening on Saturday! What more could you ask for?
David concludes, "We are also well aware that locksmiths have family commitments, which is why we encourage you to bring your partners and children, as we have put on entertainment to suite all needs and keep everyone entertained. For children, we have a children's entertainer laid on, with face painting and bouncy castle! For the ladies, we have arranged for free massages and they can even enjoy a free glass or two of our Pimms with Prosecco, courtesy of Keyline!"
The Tradelocks Open Weekend Training extravaganza is filling up FAST, and they have limited the event to 150 locksmiths in order that they can offer quality free training and hands on demos! You can get more information and can register for the event free of charge now, by visiting
