    The Tools and Skills of a Locksmith

    Last updated 6 years ago

    Here's a riddle: In many parts of the country, who is the only person legally permitted to carry lock-picking tools? The answer, of course, is a professional locksmith. Since every service a locksmith provides is an important one, it's critical to find the right company for whatever service you need. Before you call a locksmith in the Houston area, take a look at their website, or call and ask what services they provide. A qualified locksmith will offer:

    Lock installation, repair, and replacement services. Along with providing locks and other security solutions, a locksmith will clean and repair malfunctioning locks. If a lock must be replaced, the locksmith will help the customer determine the appropriate lock for the purpose required.

    Duplicating and replacing keys. Locksmiths also provide key-duplication services, copying and cutting the original key's pattern onto a blank key. They can also rekey a lock whenever required, whether to prevent a security breach or for the client's convenience.

    Response to emergency situations. This is usually a response to customers who have been locked out of their vehicle, or even their home or business. It may also be a response to customers who have been burglarized or had their car keys stolen and need to have their locks rekeyed immediately.

    Selling, installing, and servicing safes. Banks, with their safe deposit boxes and time locks, are common locksmith customers, and many businesses and even homeowners use safes to store valuables and important documents.

    At Houston Safe and Lock, we take our responsibilities as a locksmith seriously. We provide the most dependable 24-hour emergency locksmith service in Houston, and our locksmiths are trained, knowledgeable, and efficient.

    Need a key? Look no further. With the ginormous wall of hanging keys Im sure theyll be able to cut you a key for a great low-low price! Needed a spare motorcycle key and this place made me one for a mere 4 bucks! Price range from 2-7 which is awesome. While I was there, I learned I could make a key for my car for about half price of what the dealer... More

    Extra Precautions You Can Take to Secure Your Doors from Intrusion

    Last updated 6 years ago

    In Houston and around the world, burglaries in Houston are an unfortunate fact of life. You can increase lighting at night and lock your windows, but no matter how illuminated your yard may be,any locksmith in Houston can tell you that your door may be the weakest link in your home security system.

    Read below to find out how you can further secure your doors to protect your home against intrusion.

    Hollow Comfort

    Make sure your doors are as robust as the rest of your home security. Have a Houston locksmith evaluate your door, or just knock on it yourself. Hollow doors, in combination with poor or single locks, all but invite burglars that look for the easiest target.

    Pick a door that is either solid wood or metal, as these are far more resistant to intrusion. Your Houston locksmith can give you further tips, such as placing three-inch nails or screws at even intervals all around the frame, which further strengthens your door against kicking.

    Further Protection

    Talk to your locksmith in Houston about a quality deadbolt with a throw of at least an inch. That means that the bolt itself should go into the doorframe an inch deep, and the more bolt you have, the better. And a double-sided deadbolt must be opened on both sides with a key, excellent for doors near to windows.

    High-security locks have large and sturdy strike plates and are designed to withstand many kinds of attacks. Multiple locks offer an even greater benefit, because a burglar is looking to take the least amount of time to get in and get out.

    Talk to your Houston locksmith and take the time to make sure a burglar will keep walking when they pass your house.
