Hardware Installation

21 June 2015
Hello everyone,

Happy Fathers Day to all the Dad’s and best wishes for the year to come. 🙂

It is a good idea to have a Locksmith install your hardware. In the past we have been called in to fix many problems due to the inexperience of whoever did the installation. For instance a carpenter who didn’t have the right screws so filled in the hole with wood filler and toothpicks then used a wood screw where it was not appropriate to do so. We have seen locks installed upside down and even locks that have been forced in because the installer didn’t use the cut out sheet to drill the right sized hole for the hardware. 

If doing it yourself you could possibly void any warranty the product may have if it is installed incorrectly. It may seem easier to just do it yourself but in the long run it can be much cheaper and safer to use a qualified Locksmith to do the installation. 

Safety of anyone entering or leaving a room is always paramount. Please note that if you force hardware or install it incorrectly it could fail at an inopportune moment leaving the door jammed. This could then be a safety hazard.  

Again Happy Fathers Day and have a great day.

Master Key System

 

Controlled Access/Master Key System


7 May 2015

Hi everyone,

A Master Key System is a useful security tool and can be used in a variety of situations.

A Master Key System can be keyed for one key to open all doors and the master given to the few people who are allowed complete access to the building. Subsequent keys can then be cut to allow access to specific doors only. This will ensure that you can allow people access to areas they are cleared for but deny access to restricted areas. 

Master Key Systems can be used for many situations. ie:  a church, apartment building, school, a business, hotel, medical facilities …. You get the point. 🙂 Anywhere that needs controlled access can use a Master Key System. 

In a power failure a Master Key System can maintain your security. If your power controlled access control system is down your Master Key System is then your back up system. 

Enjoy the nice weather as we head towards summer.

Keys!

Hi Everyone,

Keys have been around for thousands of years and have ranged from very simple to extremely complicated.  There are basic keys and high security keys. Newer keys include electronic key cards and even a smartphone App to unlock your door. There are electronic keypad entries and more and more high tech keys you can use. You can even have a key way system made to allow people into certain areas only, and some people to have access to everything. 

If you have key needs you can see that there are a variety of options. (Not all listed here) Some work better than others and again it all depends on your needs as a consumer. If wondering which direction you should go it is a good idea to talk to The Locksmith first. There are options available for every circumstance and if there is not an obvious choice that is where advice from a Proffessional Locksmith comes in. 

Enjoy the spring weather that is on it’s way! 🙂

Hardware

4 March 2015

Hi, 

There are many different types of hardware for your doors. If you want to buy it yourself and then have a Locksmith install it for you the best thing you can do is talk to The Locksmith first. The Locksmith can advise you which level and grade of hardware you should be buying for your needs. 

When you explain how it will be used ie: Traffic, children, industrial, residential, indoor/outdoor??? The Locksmith can help you decide on a brand and the type of hardware that would be best for you. This can also depend on fire codes and other legalities so advice before buying is a wise plan of action. 

Some brands, although they may look good in the package can have a tendency to break easily. The last thing you want is to have your new hardware falling apart or not working well after a few months of use. Some brands have a warranty on the parts which can be useful as well. 

If you already have hardware in mind that you have seen in a hardware store let us know the details and we can let you know if it will be suitable for your needs.

Have a great day.
