What does a locksmith do? It’s a little surprising but this question gets asked regularly. Locksmiths have a massive wealth of knowledge when it comes to security products etc. Think about it a moment – every car lock, every door lock, every key, every safe lock….is different. Technology is constantly evolving & we need to keep learning.
A common call we get is to gain access to a clients home or business when their keys are lost or stolen. Their locks may then need to be rekeyed – this involves keeping the same lock but changing the ‘code’ – so that the old key no longer works if the thief attempts to use it. This is very important as thieves can & do return.
Of course locksmiths do a multitude of other jobs, installing new locks, installing safes, removing broken keys in ignitions, etc.
An important note – 1 in 5 home burglaries occur while someone is home – as alarming as this is the cause is most often because of unlocked doors and windows. Your security products can only work if you use them. Please…stay safe.
