Should you get a master key?

Is your business is rapidly growing? Start needing more and more space (offices / storage / private facilities, such as: kitchen & toilets for your employees only)? 

you want to have that master key in your back pocket… you surly don’t want anyone with access to storage could also access your office – so your master keeps you covered and in control.    

Master key for homes and apartments:

If you are a homeowner and you notice you have more then 4-5 different locks in your property – maybe you should consider having a master key… to be honest it’s more about convenience; in case you’ll ever lose a key and don’t really have the time to deal with in right then and there- you have your master and you can open & lock everything.

door locks - quickly locksmith Miami

To simplify things – locks snapping equals cylinder snapping; it requires absolutely no skills and any burglar who set his (or her…) mind to it -could do it, and do it well! 

As strong as your lock might be, it still has one soft spot, more vulnerable to damages, the locks’ cylinder! 

Here’s all you need to know about lock snapping- and most importantly, how you can easily prevent it in your property!

Locks snapping around the world:

With smart locks and security cameras attached to security systems, personalized entry systems, restricted entry and other innovative locks & security measurements- you’d be surprised lock snapping is picking up momentum as much as it did, this decade. Of course if we look deeper, immigration and refugees has definitely transformed major cities around the world, and now in almost any big city you can find a ‘downtown‘ area where most population is poor and crime is bound to hit roots… You know your neighborhood and you know its surrounding areas nature – if you hear about burglaries around and you hear the police visiting frequently, be smarter and secure yourself! How? Great question!

Anti-Snap locks:

The safest way to make sure you’re not exposed to lock snapping is checking your lock. Euro locks are tested and approved as either SS312 Diamond or TS007. In most wooden or uPVC the euro locks are highly reliable. 

How can you identify your locks anti snap security level? Look for the SS312 Diamond, that’s the highest level of strength approval for a euro cylinder lock / The three Star Kite-Mark Logo – indicates the lock is tested and approved to prevent locks snapping / A 1-star kite Mark cylinder, along with a 2-star kite mark on the furniture (handles, cylinder guard) match a three star kite mark as well.
