September 13, 2016 | Written by: Armstrong Security
High security locks are essential to keeping a home or business safe against burglars or people wandering in unknowingly. To maintain a secure level of safety, locks should be updated somewhat regularly. Continue reading for a few signs that you should look into replacement locks.
You have difficulty locking or unlocking your door.
If your lock has begun to rust or corrode in any way, then you should be calling your commercial locksmith. If the key sticks every time you put it in the lock, or you have difficulty turning the key, then you need to replace the lock as soon as possible.
You or an employee has misplaced keys.
Accidents happen all the time, and one of those accidents might be misplacing the key to your store’s door lock or a desk lock. If the key cannot be located in a timely manner, then you should call a professional to replace the locks. In the event that someone with bad intentions found the key, they might be able to enter your store and steal from you.
Your store experienced a burglary.
In the event of a burglary, you should always change the locks everywhere in your store and update the codes of your wall safes. Burglars have many different means to steal information, whether that be a safe code or key information for a door or desk lock. Ensure the security of your employees, merchandise, and important documents by changing the locks after a burglary.
You are worried about a disgruntled employee.
Though you should always hope for an amicable end to an employee-employer relationship, that may not always happen. If you have an ex-employee who has a key to your store or codes to your safe, then consider changing the locks, especially if the relationship ended on precarious terms.
