Key duplicating is one of the basic services offered by our technicians. Read the guide below to learn more about locks. We actually give short answers to your questions and help you understand how to deal with noisy locks and how to protect your children.
What are the advantages of a hidden lock?
The most obvious advantage identified by our team is visual in as far as intruders cannot easily see how the locking system works. On the downside, the repair of these hidden locks can be challenging since you have to open the framework.
What do I do before leaving for vacations?
You make sure the house is totally protected from any entry point. It must also give the impression that it is occupied. Lock repair is suggested to ensure the doors and windows lock well and all alarm systems and other thief deterrents must be activated.
This lock is making strange noises when I engage it, should it be replaced?
Not necessarily. Experts over at Locksmith Federal Way would recommend that you first check to make sure if the locking mechanism has been properly lubricated. If there is no oil, then parts of the mechanism are rubbing onto each other and likely causing those strange noises.
What can I do to keep my young children from playing with locks?
If your children are too young to understand or to be taught the dangers of locking mechanisms, simply make sure to keep them away from the doors. Always exercise proper parenting and let them know that playing with locks can be very dangerous.
