It is easy to ensure high level of security with the lock and key tips provided below
Can a copy of my key be made using gelatine or putty?
Yes, but the process is uncommon and difficult. It is much better to use an original master key to make a duplicate.
Hire a locksmith for eviction
When evicting someone from their lease, we recommend hiring a locksmith to either have the lock changed or rekeyed. Doing this can prevent unwanted access to your properties since your previous tenants might have duplicate copies of the keys.
Rekeying Locks Annually
Professional locksmiths suggest having the locks in your home rekeyed at least every year. This is something that not many people do, but something to seriously consider if aiming to ensure your home’s safety. Having locks rekeyed would provide you a new set of keys to use on doors, prevent unauthorized people from getting in, even if they have a copy of the old keys.
Turn the safe dial slowly and with care
If you move it too fast, the safe may not get unlocked properly. If you use too much force, the dial and the internal mechanism, which it is connected to, may get damaged. You should try to relax and focus even if you are in a hurry. Always follow the instructions of the manufacturer.
Get new locks installed when you buy a house
The professionals of Locksmith Windsor recommend that you have the locking devices of all house doors replaced as soon as possible. If you have a tighter budget, you can start with the devices of the exterior doors. Do not miss to have the locks on patio doors changed in the beginning as they are highly vulnerable.
