    What to do if your Car or House Keys get Lost or Stolen

    Last updated 6 years ago

    Losing your car or house keys can be very stressful. If you can’t find them, then there are things you can do to regain access to your home or car. In this post we’ll discuss what you should do when you get lose or house or car keys, or if they get stolen.

    Losing a house key while at home is not a big deal. But if you live alone and are out, no one will be home to let you in. Get a locksmith to open your doors for you. Most locksmiths provide 24-hour emergency services, but none are as responsive or professional as Houston Safe & Lock. We’ll be there to let you in shortly after you call.

    You should also have your locksmith change your locks during the same service call. Even if you live with other people and have access to a copy of your home key, there is still that extra copy floating around in someone else’s hands. Don’t take any chances, change your locks immediately and make sure your entire family has a new copy.

    Losing the keys to your car may be a little trickier. You have two options for getting a new key for your car. If you tow your car to a dealership, then they will be able to produce a new key that fits your car. Again, this leaves a working copy of the key unaccounted for and is very unsafe (especially if you know for sure that your keys were stolen). To be safe, you should also get the door locks and starter key changed. While this option works, it could cost you hundreds of dollars after marked-up dealership services and towing fees. Having a locksmith do it for you can be much cheaper.

    Houston Safe & Lock specializes in both car and home lock services and can even produce specialized transponder keys for your newer model car. Our top-notch 24-hour emergency lockout service will get you back in your homes in no time flat. Visit our website or call us today for information on any of our services.

    What to Do if You Get Locked Out of Your Home at Night

    Last updated 6 years ago

    There is nothing more frustrating than getting home after a long day and realizing that you have locked yourself out. If you’re not as skilled with creative solutions as MacGyver, then you might find yourself unsure of what to do.

    If you do find yourself in this unfortunate situation, then here are some things you can do to get yourself into your home and out of this tricky situation.

    1. Call Someone Who Has a Key: It might seem obvious, but before you call a locksmith service, it is best place to call someone else who has a spare key. If you are married or have a roommate, then get in contact with the other occupant and see if they are available to let you in.
    2. Look for an Open Window: If you are lucky, you might find a window ajar and can potentially get back in that way. Take a quick look around the house, but don’t spend too long trying to break in. You don’t want someone else to see you and think you are actually breaking in to your own home.
    3. Call a Locksmith: If you don’t have a spare key and did not entrust one to anyone else either, then you should call a locksmith to help you get in. For a small fee, a locksmith can get you safely back into your house.

    After you have safely gotten into your home, it’s a good idea to keep a spare house and car key in your wallet or with a trusted friend or family member. That way, in the future, you can get back into your home with ease should you ever find yourself locked out again.

    For a quality Houston locksmith, there’s no one better than Houston Safe & Lock. Our 24-hour locksmith service is here and waiting to help you get back into your home. We also have a nice selection of gun safes, fire safes, and transponder chip keys to keep your belongings safe in your home. Call us today for any and all home security needs.

    Why Every Gun Owner Should Have a Secure Gun Safe

    Last updated 6 years ago

    Even if you have all of the proper safety equipment to safely own a gun, accidents can still happen. If you want to protect your family from falling prey to accidents involving guns, then you need to keep your weapon locked securely in a safe. Look over our reasons for investing in a secure gun safe, and make the decision to buy one today.

    Protect Your Children

    There are far too many firearm accidents involving children who accidentally shoot themselves with their parents’ or neighbors’ guns each year. Keeping your firearm in a gun safe will reduce the chances of a tragedy like his from happening to you. Lock your gun away safely to protect your kids.

    You Are Responsible

    Can you imagine how bad you would feel if someone else used your gun and something terrible happened? Guns draw attention, and sometimes others want to know how it feels to shoot them. If you keep your gun in a gun safe that requires a transponder chip key or another key that you can carry on you, then other people won’t be as tempted to try the gun, which can protect you and others from bad accidents.

    It’s Your Property

    You keep important documents in fire safes to protect them in case of fire, right? A gun safe can protect your firearm from burglars or other unknown persons, preventing others from taking and potentially using it somewhere else. Your gun is your property, and you should protect the same way you would any other important piece of property.

    Having a gun is a big responsibility, one that needs to be taken seriously. Get a gun safe for your firearm and be secure in the fact that you will know where it is at all times.

    For dependable gun safes, come to Houston Safe & Lock for the security you seek. We are Houston’s top locksmith and safe company and are here to help you protect your home and family. Check us out online to see the kinds of safety products we have to offer.
