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

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.

Door lock problems that should not be ignored

Door lock problems that should not be ignored

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

Your front door lock is probably the busiest lock around the house; with every in & out the front door lock and your gate lock are active. Most residential locksmith will tell you first hand- don’t mistake your door & gate locks strength fool you, they both require yearly maintenance. Almost every locksmith Miami has to offer could replace and fix a broken lock, but there are some measures you could totally DIY!

Locks accessories- Knobs, Handles, Doors:

A lock doesn’t stand on its own, you must know, but when one part loosens the rest tend to follow. First locksmith tip would be- check and strengthen the handles, knobs and lock separately (don’t forget most door and gate locks & accessories are exposed to climate hazards all year long). This would be a great time to check for rust / loose bolt / worn out part, because as most locksmith downtown Miami would tell you first hands- one loose part is all a burglar needs to break the rest. In case you moved into a new home or just experienced a security breach, you shouldn’t try these tips, our recommendation would be to look for a locksmith downtown Miami.

Broken Key stuck inside the lock!

Oh ya… we know! It isn’t a fun day when your key gets jammed inside your lock, but take a breather and don’t start pulling and turning it just yet! Here are some locksmith tips on how to handle a key stuck inside the lock:

Try to remove as many pieces of the key away from the key-way. Don’t try to fix and shift your lock before you do so, as the broken pieces might get stuck where you can’t reach them…if you manage to gently poll the whole key out, piece by piece you’re doing perfect!

Check your lock: if you manage to retrieve all pieces of the key out this would be the time to check and see you lock is still fully responsive, perhaps it was damaged in the process. Use a spare key to check the locking mechanism. If it doesn’t respond fully (retracts & extends) you might want to check the manufacturer’s website for online support or call a locksmith downtown Miami to come check out the problem, most could offer onsite solutions and strengthen the knobs around in no time!

How to change combination locks

How to change combination locks?

Our locksmith technician unlocks a stuck & locked old safe at a commercial clients business in Miami FL

Any locksmith in Miami would tell you first hand- you must know combination locks inside out- they’re practically anywhere! You can find combination locks installed on many devices such as safes, padlocks (bikes locks etc.), door locks, briefcase locks and they also stand on their own, securing bags, lockers, tents and much more. Here are some excellent locksmith solutions that will assist you with changing combination locks in all their versatile forms.    

First thing’s first!

First tip, and it might sound a ted obvious but we’ll say it anyway, when changing a combination locks is to make sure specifically which lock you’re dealing with, and what type of device it is installed upon. Most locksmith solutions require a delicate form of work that synthesis between strength and patience in order to achieve accurate, solid results with minimum (to none) damages around. Therefore any locksmith solutions you might try to DIY would require different instructions- but here are some general guidelines that would (hopefully) be useful.

  • Patience is key! Figure out first what tools you might need to change a particular combination lock and keep them close by.
  • Locate your locks’ specific manufactures instructions on their website.
  • First open the locks and only then start working on changing the combination.
  • Any mistake you make along the way can be fixed, as long as the lock remains open and nothing’s broken.
  • Don’t re-lock the device at any point, unless you’re all done.

Diagnose your vehicle remote quickly & effectively

Diagnose your vehicle remote quickly & effectively

Car locksmith technician on work, trans-coding a new set of keys for a client in Miami FL

As the cars get smarter and smarter, remotes really have very little choice other than to keep up and stay equally modern; most average remotes can control locks, activate alarms and of course start the engine running. Most car locksmith service would be able to offer a variety of services on site in case of any emergency, but here are a few locksmith tips to help you diagnose problems in your remote.

Battery’s dead…

Car keys are rather simple devices that usually enjoy long shelf life, most work via radio transmitter that corresponds with a receiver in your car and use coin batteries / lithium. Their efficiency makes our car remotes almost too reliable. Usually when a remote stops working or transmit a lower frequency what we most likely forget to check is the basic simple element- the battery! Easy to replace, and if you’re hesitant to do it yourself any car locksmith service around could help out easily!  

Use your spare key to measure out the problem:

If you’re lucky you’re not reading this while stuck outside your car with absolutely no available spare key at hand, if you’re lucky and smart you just might be reading this blog knowing exactly where your spare key is!

But don’t worry, as most car locksmith services could make a spare key without the original (our Quickly Miami locksmith store offers this service, and many more car locksmith services); the spare key would help you determine whether the problem you’re currently experiencing is a remote control problem or something else that might require a certified locksmith / mechanic. First thing – check both keys at normal distance to see if one reacts while the other isn’t.

If the spare if better than the original – battery’s most likely the problem as it tends to wear out with time. Switch to your spare key and make sure you change the battery ASAP.

Both keys perform the same – the problem has probably nothing to do with the remote. Check the alarm / car signal receiver.

How To Calculate The ROI On Your Security

how-to-calculate-the-roi-on-your-security

How to calculate the ROI on your security

how-to-calculate-the-roi-on-your-security

Every call you make regarding your business’ security budget will ultimately play a crucial factor, when its time to count your earnings and build a new yearly budget; for instance, I might spend 10% of my overall expanse account on a yearly membership for some sort of ‘support and guidance’ service and find out at the end of the year this money was a complete waste… as you can’t really use the popular method to calculate ROI (Return/benefit – Investment/cost = ROI).

when it comes to your business security budget, here are some other great alternatives that might assist in calculating any security solutions as part of your business yearly budget.

ALE – Annualized Lost Expediency:

As you can’t really apply the normal paradigm of gain Vs. cost when considering any business security solution, we highly recommend you turn your attention towards the expected loss in case of a security breach.

  • Take under consideration any various security hazards that occur in your area, and highlight the frequency according to the data you have (burglaries, thefts, in-house security hazards – usually exterior contractors that might have access to your business for professional services / former employees/thieves pretending to be clients etc.).
  • Weight pro’s Vs. con’s: most advanced business security solutions require maintenance and part of them might also require an update every couple of years. Strong locks are highly reliable and could stay reliable for a good num of years if handled properly, unfortunately, they can’t answer most modern security demands (yet they remain the base for 90% of business security today, alongside modern security solutions). Look at any security solution as a yearly expanse (divide by num of years it would remain strong) to see if the expanse is worth the expected loss.

How to predict security breach expected loss:

Hire a reliable certified professional locksmith service in your area to perform an in-depth security audit for your business; the results will allow you to check out an overall security status and see which hazards around might hit you next, as you are currently exposed. For example, if you’re located in a shopping center where many business owners report client thefts and you currently don’t have cameras/ safes/ entry detectors- you now know you’re exposed where there’s obviously a risk. Once you know what the expected yearly frequency to any security hazard is, you could consider the current security solutions based on loss expediency.    

Quickly Locksmith is the leading locksmith service in Miami today and we’re here to assist all you business owners with any security and locksmith services you might need, around the clock.

We currently serve various clientele of business owners, big and boutique, early construction as well as apartment buildings etc.

The Important Role Of Digital Security

The important role of digital security

During the last decade you can spot a massive rise in extra security based on personalized entrance; it’s the leading modern gateway to any local folders available online, it’s the only way to accesses an office building, and it has become the best way to manage multiple accesses for a varied num. of people. Digital doors and locks are the way of the future, that’s not to say they’re there to replace the old lock on the door, but they can protect you from a whole different aspect.

Knowledge is power:

How many visitors accesses your property daily?

How about each week?

How many of your employees currently have access to all offices in your business?

Do you enjoy absolute control on your property when you’re away?

And how about when you’re right there, but busy?

Once you’ve installed a digital door / lock the answers to all these questions is not only at top of your fingers, it’s your call! Like most digital solutions there to protect information, digital locks and digital doors are easy to operate, install and manage. Digital security offers protection like no other lock in terms of knowledge- you know who has access & where to, you could tell who showed up to work today and even get a e-mail print of all your employees attendance. I could keep going but I think you get the message – once you have digital security you control every room in your property and further more, you know what’s going on under your roof.

Different types of digital locks and doors:

The digital lock could start as simple replacement to your building’s security guard as a coded entry lock- also known as keypad lock (even though it probably wont say ‘good morning’ when you pass by) and up to radio frequency identification that can restrict entrance to each room without having to take the key (card) out of your wallet; The transmitter identifies who is standing at the entrance and open the door automatically. There are also Bluetooth systems that operate the same way but via phone and of course there is the top restricted digital locks- biometric digital locks, that identify the person via his own body (finger print, eyes). Each system serves different security requirements but they all share one quality- each room in your property is now secured, and the minute that security is breached- you know about it, you could even manage the whole thing online (using extra security of course / assisting cameras etc.).

Sounds complicated? Fear not for we are here to help out, contact us.
