Dead Bolts Require Professionals
When locksmiths go to rekey a deadbolt or let in a frustrated homeowner who has been locked out, they all too frequently discover that the deadbolt was never installed correctly to begin with. Unfortunately, a badly installed lock won’t keep your family or valuables safe. Always work with a professional locksmith for all your access control needs.
Locks Are Investments
A deadbolt is the best way to keep your home or business secure, and you should purchase a lock with at least a one-inch “throw” and a security plate with at least three-inch long screws for maximum security. While some people may be tempted to look for a deal, you should think twice before purchasing any lock or safe from anyone who isn’t in the access control business.
Rekeying Is Essential
Whenever you purchase a new home, always have all of your locks rekeyed. If you don’t take this precaution, there is likely a master key somewhere that can open all the locks in your home. Remember, even keys that are stamped “do not duplicate” can be copied, so be sure to ask about high-security locks and keys.
