New Lock Installation
Your home or business is valuable; that’s why our pros at Locksmith on Wheels are fully trained in lock installation for several styles of locks. Not sure what locks to get? We can walk you through the options, discussing the advantages and disadvantages of each; we can even make recommendations based on your needs. The better the lock, the more secure your home or business.
Once you’ve chosen a lock, our experts will begin the installation. The duration of our work will vary based on the lock of choice; if you need to work on a timeline, be sure and let our team know! We’ll work to find a lock that fits your needs: performance, aesthetic, budgetary, and time!
We recommend that locks be changed when you’ve moved into a new property, if a key has been lost or vanished with an old acquaintance, or as part of enhancing your overall security. Each of these helps ensure the security of your home or business, protecting you from the unknown variables in life.
Although old locks can be repaired or refurbished, oftentimes it makes better sense to invest in an updated mechanism. New locks can improve security, offer better accessibility, and even enhance the design of your home or office doors.
We don’t just offer the standard knob and deadbolt, after all! Some of the upgrade options you can consider fall under the high-security and bump-proof categories.
These provide increased resistance to compromise or sabotage. They can include locks like keypad entries. Don’t be fooled, though! Many locks will use the buzzword ‘high security,’ but only those with an appropriate security rating or which have been extensively studied and tested by experts in the field actually live up to the term.
When someone ‘bumps’ a lock, they are using an age-old technique to access your home. Anyone with the right tools and an internet connection can learn how. Bumping forces the pins in your lock to jump to the proper formation, or shear line, regardless of what’s inserted in the keyhole.
Bump-proof locks are specially designed not to react to this technique. Some contain special pins to prevent ‘bumping’ from working, while others use an entirely different entrance method.
Life is full of surprises, many of which may require you do have duplicate keys on hand.
Perhaps your family has grown (congratulations!) and more people need access. Or maybe you bought a new place and just replaced the locks, only to find out they only gave you a single key. Perhaps you’ve brought in a new employee to help manage extra shifts, and they need building access when you aren’t around. Maybe an old key snapped off in the lock.
Whatever the reason, our experts can quickly and easily craft an extra copy of your key.
Locks can wear down over time, causing mechanical failure and making getting in and out of your residence or business difficult, not to mention less secure.
Perhaps they were exposed to sudden pressure changes; maybe wear and tear has loosened inner components. For these reasons and more, locks occasionally need to be maintained or repaired in order to keep them performing optimally.
If your lock has been giving you problems, give our team a call! We’ll send one of our expert locksmiths out to take a look, and will let you know if the lock is worth repairing or if you should consider a replacement.
Repairs can involve anything from readjusting the strike plate to replacing an interior component. Please know that we won’t be able to diagnose a lock over the phone. We can give an educated guess, but our technician needs to get his hands on the lock and work with it to properly deduce what is wrong.
Rekey Locks and Cylinders
If it’s time to change your locks but you want to maintain the same design and style, rekeying may be a good option. With this service, our professionals take your lock off the door and change the internal mechanisms so that a new key is needed to access your home or business.
Rekeying is also a safe way to change locks and keys for a vehicle.
Many of our clients ask if it’s best to rekey or replace a lock, and the answer is always the same: we have to judge on a case-by-case basis. When it comes to securing your property, we need all the information and a good look at the area being secured to make the best possible suggestions.
