It’s happened to all of us. For one reason or another we end up misplacing our house keys. Usually we can find them quite quickly but at other times they seem to be lost forever. When you feel that you have searched endlessly and really don’t think that you’ll be able to find them, it’s time to call in a locksmith. You’ll need to have access to your house and if you don’t have any spare keys, it really becomes a critical situation.
Lost Key Break-Ins
The odds are very low that a burglar will find your lost key and be able to associate it with your house. Low odds, however, doesn’t mean that you’ll be able to sleep well at night knowing that somebody out there could have found your keys and may know where you live. For that reason, we suggest either rekeying your lock or purchasing new locks for your door for your own peace of mind.
As an added note, it’s never a good idea to have identifying information attached to your keychain. If you did have any type of identifying data on your keychain, you’ll definitely need to get new locks or have your current locks rekeyed to prevent a burglary.
Rekey a Lock
There are some locks that can be rekeyed and others that can’t be modified. When you call Locksmith Care one of our experienced locksmiths will let you know right away whether it’s possible to do it for your lock. If you do need to invest in new hardware you may want to consider upgrading to a high-security lock. These types of locks provide a lot more security and are definitely worth their weight in gold when you consider their ability to keep burglars out.
Choosing the Right Locks
When it comes to locks they certainly aren’t all created equally. Some of the locks that are available at the big box retail stores can be quite ineffective and really aren’t worth the money. If you decide to change your locks completely we’ll let you know which locks are recommended based on your budget and the security features you want for your home.
When you can’t find your keys give us a call at 416-828-2596. You can also take a look at our site at locksmithcare.com to see the types of locks we carry. We look forward to meeting you soon and we’ll do everything possible to make sure that your house is safe and secure once again.
