Over the years, our team has helped countless clients fix their lock and key issues. Our mobile technicians enjoy helping local drivers and property owners find ways to enhance their security, and we want to help you do the same. Here are some fun tips and tricks to help you achieve the results you want. 

Basic Locks Are Easy to Bypass 

The minimum standard locks purchased from your local big box retail store is easy to pick. Most modern-day criminals have an arsenal of tools that easily allow them to bypass normal locks. If you really want additional protection against a home invasion, then it is best to upgrade your locks to high security models. You may want to take additional precautions as well, by installing smart doorbells or outdoor security cameras to deter criminals and identify individuals who attempt to break into your property. 

The Quality of Your Entry Door Matters 

If your door is made from cheap materials, then a determined burglar can probably bypass high security locks with brute force. Consider a security door made with steel, iron bars or heavy-duty wood. 

Rekey the Locks After Moving into a New Place 

Are you a renter who just moved into a new home or workspace? Did you recently purchase a previously owned home? Then it is a good idea to rekey or replace the existing locks. There is no way to know how many people were given a key to the property, so it is best to start fresh. 

Never Hide a Spare Key in Obvious Locations 

It may seem like a good idea to hide a spare key in the mailbox, beneath the welcome mat or underneath a rock in a nearby flower bed. However, every criminal in the world is aware of these obvious hiding spots. Having a few spare keys on hand is a good idea, but give them to a trusted spouse, friend or family member that you can rely on in an emergency.

Avoid Car Dealerships and Call a Mobile Locksmith for Transponder Key or Ignition Issues 

When dealing with failed transponder keys or a damaged ignition, many drivers assume that the only way to repair their problem is to take their vehicle into a local mechanic's shop or dealership. While this may have been true several decades ago, modern advancements in technology have provided modern mobile locksmiths with the tools and specialized equipment needed to replace and program your key fobs, repair a broken ignition or install new locks, on site. This means we will come to your location, and provide fast, effective and affordable automotive services so you can get back behind the wheel in no time.
