Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council – High Security Locks Scheme 2022 for Home Owners 65 years and over 


This High Security Locks Scheme is to support residents 65 years of age and over living in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown (dlr) with replacing their existing lock barrels / cylinders in external doors with high security anti-snap locks, through an application process.

This scheme will cover the total cost for the replacement by LockSafe Locksmiths of lock barrels only, on up to maximum 2 locks per home – front door / back door / side door.  The Scheme will not cover the costs of repairing doors/locks which are already faulty and locks that were already replaced during the 2021 High Security Locks Scheme.

Please note that not all external doors are suitable for replacement barrel locks. A suitable door with an existing lock barrel / cylinder must be a PVC door; a Sliding door or an Aluminium door, with a multi-point locks system.

It is essential that the external door(s) of clients receiving a lock(s) replacement is/are in good working order and opened and used regularly.  Repair work of a door(s) not already working properly is not covered under the locks replacement scheme. 

Applications will only be considered from owner occupiers of privately-owned homes who reside in the dlr County Council Administrative area aged 65 years of age and over. The scheme is not open to people living in rented accommodation (private, social or voluntary).

Applicants that were not successful under the 2021 High Security Locks Scheme are most welcome to apply again this year.

Online applications would be preferable and we also welcome hard-copies of application forms. Please contact the Community Section of dlr County Council at (01) 205 4893 if you would like to receive a hard copy of the Application Form and Privacy Statement.
