[12/15/20] Did you know that repairing the damage from someone who thought they could help you unlock your car could cost hundreds of dollars? Calling in a locksmith is the far cheaper alternative to dealing with damage to your vehicle.
[12/10/20] Some criminals may use a filed-down key, known as a "bump key," to force open a standard lock. Certain locks (such as combination locks, disc locks, magnetic locks, electronic locks, and keyless locks) are immune to bump keys.
[12/08/20] Just as important as having external protection for your business is having internal protection. If you don’t have a security and safety plan, you should write them or have them written for your company and share it with employees so everyone has clear expectations.
[12/03/20] When is the best time to select an auto locksmith? This is a decision best made when there is no emergency. That way, you or a family member won't have to panic if a car key breaks off in the ignition or the key is locked inside the vehicle. Keep the name and 24-hour number of an auto locksmith available at all times.
[12/01/20] You should always change the locks of your new home when you move in. In fact, it should be your top priority if you want to ensure complete safety and security.
[11/26/20] While your spouse may be able to bring the spare key to you when you lock yourself out of your car around the corner from where they are, they may not always have easy access to where you are. Calling a locksmith can be much more convenient.
[11/24/20] You may see lock picking tools available online, but actually using them can be more difficult than you think. Learning ways to disable locks takes knowledge and practice. Oh, and in some areas of the country, owning lock picking tools is illegal.
[11/19/20] Did you know that child safety locks were created back in the 1980s? These locks are on every car with a backseat for your child’s safety. If they seem to me messing up, call us and we can get a locksmith out there to take a look.
[11/17/20] While it might be easy to tell what kind of lock should go some places, others can present unique difficulties. Sliding glass doors or windows, for example, require different types of locks depending on how they're installed and how they operate. A professional locksmith is the best person to ask about specific locking dilemmas.
[11/12/20] We recognize that giving your spare car key to someone is only useful in a jam when he or she can get it to you. If the person with your spare key won’t be able to get it to you for quite a while, you may want to contact a locksmith so that you can get back into your vehicle and on with your day.
[11/10/20] The first locking system that required a key was invented in 1778 by Robert Barron of Britain. A key made especially for the lock was needed to raise a pair of tumblers to the proper height.
[11/05/20] Locksmiths not only unlocked locks but have historically made entire locks. These locks required hours of file work and hand cutting screws.
[11/03/20] Transponder keys offer an extra element of security. If the chip that’s in the plastic head of the key emits the wrong signal to the receiver in the ignition, the vehicle won’t start. We are able to quickly recode your transponder to correspond with the ignition receiver.
[10/29/20] Do you know the difference between a master and a skeleton key? A master key can be used to unlock any lock within a certain system, such as a hotel. A skeleton key can open most or all of a type of early designed lock.
[10/27/20] Suddenly, your car key no longer starts your car. If you call your car dealership, they will need you to come to their service shop. But an auto locksmith will come to you, and you won't have to spend any time in a car dealership waiting room.
[10/22/20] When your spouse or teen-ager is driving the car, make sure they have a way to get in touch with us in the event of an emergency, particularly if you are unavailable, for whatever reason.
[10/20/20] You may not think that your lost car key can get into the hands of a criminal, but car theft is a common crime in the United States. In fact, a vehicle is stolen every 43 seconds, according to 2012 statistics from the FBI.
[10/15/20] The oldest known lock was found by archaeologists in the Khorsabad Palace ruins near Nineveh, an ancient city that once lay across the river from the modern-day city of Mosul, Iraq. When it was discovered, the lock was estimated to be 4,000 years old.
[10/13/20] A number of different materials are available for the constructing of a lock's outer casing. These materials include brass, chrome, nickel, and steel.
[10/08/20] Confused by terminology? Don't be. If you've heard that you have a transponder key to your car that just means it has the security chip in it. We can help you with duplication and with programming the correct codes into it. They are more expensive to duplicate, but you are not alone.
[10/06/20] Did you know that locks weren’t added to cars until the 1920s? Before that time cars were only owned by the wealthy who could afford to either keep the car in a garage or have an attendant. As cars reached more people, they had to be protected.
[10/01/20] Do you need an auto locksmith to help you get into your car? If so, you should ask for a detailed estimate for any charges and replacement parts, as well as whether the locksmith provides 24-hour service.
[09/29/20] If your chip in your car keys is not working, call us and we can assist you. We will be able to open up your car and help you figure out the problem.
[09/24/20] We understand that as long as your business has doors that lock, there will be someone who loses their set of building keys. When you suspect that someone’s key is missing, let’s talk about how quickly we can change the locks.
[09/22/20] Every year plenty of cars are stolen because the driver left the keys in the ignition -- and may even have left the car running. Most car thieves are opportunists, so it's risky to think "I'll just be gone a second," regardless of the circumstances. It just takes seconds to steal a car.
[09/17/20] Once you choose an emergency locksmith, it's a great idea to immediately put all phone numbers to reach the locksmith into your cell phone. It's easy to become flustered and forget names and numbers during an emergency.
[09/10/20] Combination locks have a number of advantages. One of the advantages provided by a combination lock is the lock's inability to be picked because it does not have a key.
[09/08/20] Did you realize that a majority of residential burglaries occur during the daylight hours when homeowners and family members are at work or school? One of the best defensive tools against unforced entry by a burglar is a sturdy door lock.
[09/03/20] One of the advantages over using keys with high security transponder chips, compared to remote control Fob keys, is that transponder chips are crafted out of glass and do not need batteries – unlike remote control Fob keys which can lock you out of your car if their battery runs low or quits.
[09/01/20] If you've just installed new locks in your small business, one way to help maintain security is to limit the number of keys you hand out and keep a list of keys you have in circulation, complete with who has possession of them.
[08/27/20] It’s important to remember that some types of vehicles have keys that can’t be copied by anyone except the dealership. Even if we can’t help you get a new key so that you can drive home, we may still be able to help you get into your car so you can retrieve your belongings.
[08/25/20] The earliest known locks were made of wood, and created by Ancient Egyptians about 4,000 years ago. Metal locks were developed by British craftsmen in 900 AD.
[08/20/20] When it comes to auto locksmithing, both J tools and L tools work similarly to unlock car doors without a key. They are usually used with supplementary wires and guides that are fed through the top of the window to help the locksmith access the lock.
[08/18/20] What is a strike plate? That is the piece of hardware that allows the door bolt to extend into the door jam and keep the door closed. A strike plate that is plastic or flimsy makes it easy for a burglar to make a forced entrance.
