Listed below are practical and effective tips you may find useful in keeping your locks free of defects.
Avoid Locking Toddlers in your Own Car
A car lockout can be a real nightmare, especially if there are little, vulnerable children involved. To avoid locking toddlers in your own car, it is suggested that you never step out of your vehicle leaving the ignition keys on. Take the keys with you or if possible, take the kids as well and then lock your car.
Have an extra pair of keys
Having an extra pair of keys will always keep you more secured. Most local locksmith companies offer key duplication. You can order your keys from our professionals and we will have them duplicated at a very affordable rate.
The Preferable Door Lock Combination
Experts at Locksmith Chino Hills suggest having a combination of a medium security lock, a deadbolt lock, and a door chain or limiter for doors. These three locks can provide convenience and optimum security. The medium security lock is the lock that comes with the typical doorknob. It has to be reinforced by a deadbolt lock for better protection from lock picking. The door chain is to keep the door from completely opening when answering someone behind the door.
Broken Key Stuck in the Lock
One of the reasons for a home or office lockout is the breaking of the keys. Keys of inferior quality can break while still inside the lock barrel. If this happens, the lock becomes unusable. You would need to remove the stuck object first. You can try pulling the broken part out using a pincher or even a nail cutter. To avoid having to replace the lock, just get the broken part and have it duplicated.
