A personal locksmith services for your home and business
It is two o’clock in the morning, and you are at the entrance of your home and you can not enter. You are calling a locksmith in your area, and you are waiting for his arrival. You have never had a reason to look for a locksmith before, so you have no idea what to expect.
When he arrives at your address, the locksmith will explain what can be done, how much it will cost, and how long it takes to solve the problem. This is exactly what you expect. Yes, it is quite possible and it happens every day, but this is not all. There are specialized services you do not even know about.
Why is it important to use the services of an accredited professional?
Let’s talk about installing a new lock on your front door. In any case, it is not a good idea to buy it from the hardware store in the first place. These locks are mass-produced and some of them use the same key. Many of the locks in one batch lot come from the manufacturer with the exact same key.
It is definitely possible that your key matches one of your neighbor’s keys! In the majority of cases, criminals have no practice to carry many different keys to enter the homes, but at the same time, there is a great chance that one of your neighbors will have access to your home using his own key. When using the services of a locksmith company, however, you will not have to worry about other keys fitting into your lock.
As for thieves, it is always easier to unlock the mass-produced lock purchased by local hardware. Although manufactured by established and respected manufacturers, these locks correspond to a very low standard. Locksmiths, on the other hand, have access to highly secure locking mechanisms capable of giving you real security and peace of mind for your life and assets.
Contractors are not good specialists in installing locking systems, especially the Dead Bolt lock for entrance doors. If the lock is not installed properly, you will not be fully protected, and you will likely have difficulty unlocking and locking the door. Locksmiths have not only the knowledge but also the necessary technical equipment to install custom locks and deadbolts that will keep your home safe.
Why is high quality important?
If there is a window placed on your door or near it, a deadbolt that uses a thumb turn will not keep you protected. A thief can knock the glass out of the window and stick his hand to turn the lock. The best type of deadbolt system is one that has a minimum “throw” of 1 inch and a security plate that has screws measuring a minimum of 3 inches in length that go into the wood frame of the door. The lock should have a double cylinder on it with a key that secures the lock from the inside.
The same is true for window locks too. For the same security reasons, your window locks should also be fitted by a licensed locksmith. If a thief discovers that it’s difficult to break through a door, he will often turn to the window next. Once you have your doors handled, you should also look into your options for secure window locks.
You must change the locks of your new home
When you move into a new home, your first call should be to your local locksmith. You are given keys for your new home, but you can not know how many people have a copy of the keys from your front door. The previous owner may have given duplicates to his relatives, neighbors and contractors working on the home etc.
Additional reasons to consider changing the locks are:
- Your home has already been burglarized;
- You have lost your keys;
- This lock is worn and does not work properly;
- You use the lock installed by the builder and you need a more reliable solution;
- Someone has stolen your purse with the keys in it;
- You have no idea how many people – contractors, neighbors and other people have key duplicates from your door.
