Tips to Improve Your Home Security When You Are Short on Money

Tips to Improve Your Home Security When You Are Short on Money

Changing old locks to brand new high security locks in a residence in Miami FL

let’s face facts- smart gates? Smart locks, or even a proper 360 surround security cameras setup – are quit of an expanse when you look at it as part of a yearly budget, not everyone can afford it, and most locksmith in Miami FL would recommend you either go for a solid brand or look for another proper security solution. Here’s a few tips on how to improve your home security, even with a tight budget, and these tips are fully backed with years long experience as leading locksmith in Miami FL service.

Match the right lock with the proper door:

You really don’t need to purchase smart locks or high end security systems if you don’t have the budget for it, however, a tight budget means smart investments; make sure you purchase a strong, solid lock for your front door and back entry – ask any locksmith downtown Miami for his personal recommendation. This one is important, because the leading brands locks will take minimum yearly maintenance, the materials are very cheap and the info on how to DIY is available online. You don’t want a strong lock on a weak door as the cylinder will crack it from the inside fairly quickly – make sure your doors and locks match, again any locksmith in Miami FL could recommend the right, affordable match of solid strong doors and locks.

Tricks that work…

We also offer commercial locksmith services in Miami, and the first thing small business do is place a camera in plain sight– it doesn’t have to work, in fact- it doesn’t even have to shot a single frame to send off a warning. This mainly helps preventing thefts (also great for home owners with employees inside the house on a weekly basis). As the leading commercial locksmith service in Miami we’ve also learned that sometimes, when the budget is low – an alarm could be highly useful even if no one is actually connected to it. Many locksmith Downtown Miami will tell you first hand- just the sound of it makes so much noise that a burger (who has no idea the alarm is actually disconnected and that its just… alarming!) would run away.

How to Improve Your Front Doors’ security?

How to Improve Your Front Doors' security?

Be aware – this article won’t be full of surprises, we’re not about to tell you anything you don’t already know, that is of course if you are a homeowner for more than a few years; any residential locksmith service available at your neighborhood would highly recommend all home owners to keep your front door security at top shape! As they are the mirror that reflects your property’s security status for anyone watching, good or bad. 

Here’s a few locksmith tips!

Yearly Maintenance is the key! Literally…

In Miami for instance, residential locksmith services won’t advise to use anything but a solid-core door for your front entrance, and if you ask us? For all doors accessing your property… Front and Back. These doors can’t be broken with violence and force, any burglar would have to work the lock… after you secure your door, the locks would be the next step. As the leading residential locksmith service in Miami we put great value on a good solid, reliable deadbolt lock. We provide locksmith service 24/7 – you can call Quickly anytime and share your security requirement with our certified locksmith for their tips. Deadbolt will need a yearly reinforcement, usually one you can DIY. If you spot mold / rust this would be the time to replace the lock as it is now much much easier to brake.

Secure the Front Doors’ Environment:

Two easy tips to scare away burglars and enhance your safety; the first – install a peephole. Looking for an emergency locksmith near me service? Most of them could install a peephole right away as this would prevent all those ‘nice’ burglars (we just call them lazy…) that use the old ‘knock on the door’ to get their foot inside, and then knock down the entire door.  

The second would be, installing an automated outdoor light around each door accessing your home, as soon as you walk to your door the light immediately opens up and light your way, on the flip side- when the wrong person accessing your door he’ll probably shy away from any lights that might expose him…

We’re here at Quickly locksmith to answer all you home owners out there with any residential locksmith inquiry you might have- don’t hesitate we’re a 24/7 locksmith service!

Door knob turn but won't open? how to fix jammed and stuck locks

Your key is right here and the lock seems just fine so… where’s the problem?

Hold on before looking for a ‘locksmith near me’ we have some tips to help you fix a jammed / stuck locks.

Check your door knob first:

A door knob works on a loaded bolt, each time you spin the handle you’re basically retracing the bolt, when the lock is at its normal state the spring is longer. In situations where the door knob turns yet it won’t open – the problem is probably something to do with the handle & bolt, there are a few options here, but safest way to go about it is to call a local locksmith service to help out.

To try and fix the problem yourself you’d first want to take the knobs off, then the handles and thru spindle- then use the whole you’ve just created inside your door to try and twist and see is this retracts the handle back.

Door lock won’t lock…

Your door lock is stuck open and won’t lock? Any local locksmith services will safely help out in a matter of minutes, and most locksmith downtown Miami will advise on rapid actions as you are now exposed…

First check to see (mostly with older locks) if you spot rust / mold on your lock’s internals, because this might cause them to worn out. Also the key might not work in the cylinder for being worn out- in this case a spare key will fix you up. After thoroughly checking both cylinder and key you should take a look and see your door isn’t the problem here.

  

If you tried one of our DIY tips and it didn’t quite work out don’t be shy – call a local locksmith service and tell them your problem. Most ‘locksmiths near me’ search will generate a nice list of reliable professionals offer locksmith services 24/7.

How to remove a broken padlock

How to remove a broken padlock

Re keying a door lock of a residential door, and replacing old lock with a new high security lock

In approximately 95% of the time when dealing with a broken padlock scenario you might as well just say goodbye and break the entire lock, as most likely it won’t survive and maintain its effectiveness for much longer. However, sometimes its what’s inside you care about- what this lock might be guarding right now, that you don’t want to damage? 

Or perhaps the door is sensitive and any further destructive moves might damage its design?

As the leading locksmith service in Miami we’re here to give you a few DIY tips on how to properly deal and safely remove a broken padlock.

Let’s have a clear look:

just because its broken doesn’t mean it’s useless; you’d be surprised to learn that after removing a broken padlock correctly, it might work (not as efficiently and you’ll probably need to purchase a few single parts- but a good padlock is worth it). 

So the first thing you have to do is clean the lock inside and out. Lubricating all visible parts of the lock and try to let the lubrication oil penetrate the padlock, helping the locks’ parts to slide past each other.  

If you’re having an emergency and need to remove a broken padlock ASAP you can call a locksmith 24 hours service and rest assure – you’re in- in no time.

Cut it – don’t knock on it:

It won’t be our first measure, as cutting a padlock might be a ted aggressive, but if you own the proper tools (or a neighbor / friend might help out) – this would be the quickest way to remove a broken padlock with minimum damages all around.

All you need is a strong arm and a pair of bolt cutters (the bigger and stronger the lock – the larger tools it’ll require to cut it) will do the trick, any locksmith Miami has to offer could easily recommend the right cutters for your lock. Most locksmith offer locksmith services 24 hours so you can call up and ask for our free advice over the phone at any time.

Easy ways to unlock a door without a key

screwing and finishing brand new door installation including brand new high security lock

Easy ways to unlock a door without a key

Our locksmith technician installing a brand new door in a residential building in Miami FL

Hey it happens! We all lose our keys along the way… 

And you know, you absolutely positively know you have a spare waiting for you inside the only problem is, how to get in?

Any emergency locksmith services available around could easily get you home / wherever you need to get into, but sometimes- don’t you just want to know how to ‘break-in’ yourself? Don’t worry you can answer; we won’t tell a soul… 

Bouncing the lock:

Here’s a tricky one for you, and we put it in first as bouncing the lock and bumping it slightly is a method most Miami locksmiths know all too well. It’s a highly effective measure to unlocking a locks without a key- simply get a bump key (very easy to get- doesn’t work on cars) and insert it inside the lock, then use a screwdriver / hammer to generate pressure and push the bump key pins up inside the lock; try to start off lightly, adding pressure as you feel the bump key inside the lock until it opens. 

Drilling it out:

In case you’ve reached this point, you really best off calling an emergency locksmith services around. If you’re reading this where no locksmith service can assist you at moment make sure you know – drilling a lock will properly open it in a matter of minutes, but it will cause damages to your door and eliminate the lock from ever being useful again.

Ready? get a drill & screwdriver and make sure you drill just above the lock, separating the driver pins while holding the lock in place. Then use the screwdriver to rotate the plug and your lock is open. Make sure you contact a local locksmith service or even an emergency locksmith service ASAP as you are property’s now exposed.

Other outdated methods:

We could sell you with the old credit card / using hair pins to pick the lock- but that mostly works in movies. Good thing is – no matter how long you spend trying to pick your own lock open (unless it’s fairly old- over 15 years old… in that case- go for it!) or shove a credit card in there, you won’t cause any severe damages to your door and locks. However, you should probably be aware that most modern locks are very strong resilient mechanism, it’s not easily to open them with little familiarity & experience.

So tip of the day – if you know what you’re doing with heavy machinery try to do it yourself as described here, and if locksmith isn’t your top attribute you can call a locksmith services to help out.

How to ‘break-in’ your own home when losing/misplacing your keys

How to 'break-in' your own home when losing/misplacing your keys?

Our locksmith technician installing a brand new door in a residential building in Miami FL

Oh no, you left your home and just realized the keys are still inside- damn it!

We all do it… not on purpose, but hey it happens… Now’s not the time to get med and call yourself a bunch of names, you’d never let someone else say those nasty things to you right? So stop saying it in your head!

And the most important thing to remember right about now is- don’t take your frustration out on your lock- it’s not its fault, and it’s not going to respond well to anger and attempts to force it open (any other day you’d thank it for being so strong and resilient, probably not today..).   

DIY tips that will help you get back inside:

when you forget / misplace your keys, or… when your door is automatically locked and you realize you forgot your keys inside- one second too late you can call a locksmith services to help out or try:

  • Call a neighbor / friend / anyone that might have a spare key
  • Check for open windows / back doors / basement door
  • Use a plastic card to open an unlocked door: insert it slightly and look for the lock mechanism inside. Once you find it start gently shaking the handle and the plastic card will slowly open your lock
  • If you have a screwdriver available you can remove your door knob and then use the screwdriver to simply unlock it

Locksmith Miami – 24/7!

In case you try a bunch of stuff and nothing works- stop there! You don’t want to cause any damages to your door, or further damages to your knob / lock.

Antique Lock Repair: How to make old locks new again

Locks & Keys - Quickly locksmith Miami

Antique lock repair is a task that requires certain locksmithing skills, as you can probably guess antique locks are not your average ‘lock on the door’ and therefor, we’d like to offer a word of advice; As these locks are very strong and effective throughout time, most locksmiths in Miami would suggest you keep them in good shape and enjoy them for as long as they remain solid.

Exterior (appearance) Vs. Interior (functionality):

The common problem most locksmiths in Miami encounter when dealing with antique locks is their appearance; why is that even a problem you ask? Good one! Well, most locksmiths in Miami will tell you firsthand- when your home holds an impressing exterior along side a shaky looking lock, burglars take notice, in fact, that’s exactly what they’re looking for.

You don’t need to look for a locksmith Downtown Miami just yet! If all is well as far as the lock functionality, you can really handle the exterior section all by yourself. It doesn’t require any locksmithing skills. Just head to your local locksmith Downtown Miami, show them a picture of your lock and ask for a polish spray for antique locks / a new layer of color.

DIY locksmithing tips for antique locks repair:

Rust perhaps one of the biggest problems with antique locks. You can gently remove the lock, soak its parts in Vinegar for a few hours (check and see according to the materials for how long). Before you remove any part make sure you know how to put it all back together. After soaking in Vinegar, you must spray and clean each part and let it dry.

Lock’s not solid if you notice the lock is lose / you hear shaking inside when using it. Try to remove it (take a pic – so you know how & where everything should go back) and see what’s ‘cooking’ inside. If something’s broken you should head to your local locksmith downtown Miami, but if it’s only a loose part or two- you can replace them at a special locksmithing store for antique locks.

Internal mechanical problems rust / loose parts / nonfunctional parts. Sometimes all you need is a look inside your lock to spot the problem and get the whole lock effective and strong again.
