What You Need to Know About Locksmith Services

What You Need to Know About Locksmith ServicesA professional locksmith can offer a wide range of services to help keep you safe, and help you out when you’re stuck in a jam!

Lockout Service

There is nothing more frustrating than having the door slam behind you, only to realize that your keys are trapped inside.  Whether it’s leaving your house to check the mail or parking your car at work, suddenly and unexpectedly losing access to your home or car can ruin your day.

When one of our locksmith technicians arrive on site, the first thing they will do is assess the situation, and determine what steps need to be taken.  Generally speaking, the tools and techniques professional locksmiths use will gain you access to your car or home without causing damage.  Using specialized tools, or techniques known as “lock bumping”, the technician should be able to quickly gain access.  Some locks take a longer time than others, and you should expect your technician to give you an estimate of the time they’ll need to gain access upfront.

Lock Installation

These days, anyone can go down to their local hardware store and buy their own lock and deadbolt.  They can install it themselves, completely DYI.  Why bother going with a professional locksmith at all?  If you’re handy, you can do it yourself, right?

While that’s not entirely false, it’s almost a guarantee that a DYI lock installation will not be as safe or secure as a professional installation.  Nothing compares with the peace of mind you get when you know that your locks have been properly installed, and your home safety has been secured.

Our experts specialize in locks.  No matter what questions you may have about your locks or your security needs, GTA Lockman can help you get the proper lock and ensure it’s properly installed.

Professional Lock Repair

No matter what you need, you should expect your locksmith to be calm and professional and to serve you with the highest level of professionalism.  GTA Lockman‘s services are second to none!

The Benefits of Professional Lock Installation

The Benefits of Professional Lock InstallationThese days, anyone can go down to their local hardware store and buy their own lock and deadbolt.  They can install it themselves, completely DYI.  Why bother going with a professional locksmith at all?  If you’re handy, you can do it yourself, right?

Your front door lock is your main line of defense against burglars and unwanted intruders.  A poorly installed lock is a weak point.  We can’t count the number of times we’ve gone out to a site and found a weak or badly installed dead bolt.  A badly installed lock can actually lower your security – it’s a place for burglars and thieves to attack.

If you’re picking up a lock from a big box store, also keep in mind that you’re likely getting a cheapo, low-budget lock.  Even from reputable manufacturers, these are often built to very low standards to keep costs down.  We install only the highest-quality locks – and, more to the point, we know which locks work best for which situations.  We’ll ensure that you get the best lock for your budget and situation.

Most hardware store employees won’t know as much about the locks they sell as we do, either!  While some employees can be very helpful, most stores don’t have anyone who specializes in locks.  They have to cover a wide variety of merchandise, and don’t have the same level of expertise on everything they sell.  If you have questions about your lock installation, the experts at GTA Lockman will be a much more trustworthy place to turn to than a generalist.

If you want to ensure your lock installation is done right, trust the experts.  Call GTA Lockman today.
