Forget about confusion and mistakes when it comes to using and caring for door locks and keys. Here you will find all of the practical tips you need to achieve optimal security and convenience. They are on a diverse range of topics in the locksmith field so there is something for everyone.
Don't let problems stay unsolved
As everyone can understand, the meaning of lock repair is to fix problems. Do you know how many people neglect to fix their locks? If they encounter a problem and are able to superficially fix it for now, they think it's alright to leave it like that. This is wrong. Our experts explain that window and door locks must be properly repaired and in fact as soon as possible or the problem might pop again and it might be worse.
Opening a combination lock
Many times a combination lock is used and the combination to open the lock is completely forgotten. If the lock is of a fairly recent vintage, there's a good chance that the manufacturer of the lock has published the combination on their website. All you need to do is check the code number on the back of the lock and then match it to the code number on the website to retrieve the combination.
When getting window locks installed, don’t forget one for your skylight and attic windows
You’d be surprised at the lengths burglars will go to try and get into your house. When homeowners install window locks for extra security, they often think that skylights or attics are too high for anyone to try to break into, or they forget them entirely. This is a big mistake. Secure all your windows, even those located on the upper levels of your home. And while you’re at it, don’t forget basement windows either.
