Kitchener Locks Change Services
A business owner knows he needs to call a locksmith when one of his employees admits that he has lost his copy of the business’ door key. When this happens, the locks for every door, as well as every copy of the keys that correspond to the locks, need changing. A professional locksmith responds quickly, arriving at the business to remove the old door locks and install new locks.
If the locks are high-security door locks, these will be replaced with a new set of high-security locks. Because the locksmith knows that his customer needs high-security locks, he will bring these with him.
Homeowners and their family members find that they need to replace their house keys. If one family member’s house key has broken off in a door lock, that key portion has to be removed. The door lock may also need replacement-which will make it necessary to replace the door locks in the rest of the house.
The locksmith who responds to the service call will remove the broken key from the door lock, and then examine that lock for any damage the broken key may have caused. If the door locks need to be replaced, he will bring several matching sets back from his truck and replace all door locks.
While locksmiths replace home and business locks, they may not be equipped to do the same for vehicles. Given the wide range of vehicle makes and models, this would not be possible. They can, however, perform emergency lock out services, getting into locked cars and handing car owners the keys that were locked inside.
Should the owner’s car keys get stuck inside the ignition, this is a situation a professional and well-equipped locksmith can address. He will extract the stuck key and examine the ignition for any possible damage. He may recommend that the car owner take the car to the service department of the dealership and have the ignition replaced; or, he can replace the ignition himself.
Over time, the ignition’s insides can wear down, especially if the owner’s key ring is weighted down by too many keys. If the locksmith replaces the ignition, he will advise the car owner to lighten his key ring and separate house keys from car keys.
After a homeowner has been burglarized, he has to look at every measure possible to increase his home’s security. This can include changing screen doors to security doors and replacing hollow-core doors for solid-core doors. The homeowner can also opt for having a home security system installed.
