Residential Unlocks

“I’m locked out of my house.”

We can get your back into your home quickly. We specialize in non-destructive entry, in fact we typically leave your locks in better condition then we find them.

What needs to be done to secure your home?

“my purse was stolen with my keys and driver’s license.”

Our first priority is to eliminate lost, stolen, or otherwise compromised keys. We can re-key your existing locks eliminating the pre-existing keys.  Second, we ensure your locks provide reasonable resistance to forced entry. A “reasonable resistance to forced entry” is accomplished by having a properly installed deadbolt & strike-plate on each exterior door.

During a residential service call our locksmiths check that your locks are properly installed at no additional fee. Every deadbolt is inspected to make sure it’s bolt is fully thrown when locked, and each strike plate is secured to the door frame properly. This is one area where you get exceptionally high value for your money, small common-sense adjustments can make a huge difference here.

Professional Lock installation & Replacement

“My door only has a knob, can you install a deadbolt?”

We can drill out your door to accept a deadbolt. Some doors are manufactured with only one hole pre-drilled for a knob or lever. Knobs and levers have proven themselves to be ineffective against forced entry. If you are concerned about forced entry we urge you to have a deadbolt professionally installed. We stock a variety of knobs and deadbolts on our service vehicles, available in multiple finishes.

 

Lock Repair

“My lock feels sticky”

We service and repair nearly every type of residential lock, including antique mortise locks. In many cases we can replace individual parts, other times it’s best to replace a lock entirely.
