How to Burglar Proof Doors

Often after experiencing a break in, the first thought that comes to mind is ‘how did this happen’ and ‘how can I prevent it from happening again? Quickly Locksmith in Miami is here to shed some light on how and why burglars do what they do and more importantly, how you can stay one step ahead and prevent these things from happening. As most locksmiths will tell you, understanding the weaknesses of your locks and security systems will predict the solution and prevent the most common burglary tactics from becoming an actual burglary!

Massive attack:

Home burglars are experts in their field. They have their tricks and they also know your neighborhood. Looking for a local locksmith is imperative as not only are they qualified and experts in their field, but they also know your neighborhood and the common methods thieves are using in the local area.

Speak to your local locksmith experts and ask how recent burglaries are taking place in your area. Often, you’ll find that brute force is used to break down weak wooden doors and you’d probably be surprised at how easily and with so little noise burglars are capable of doing this. 90% of burglars would rather avoid metal doors as breaking them is a much bigger task. More importantly perhaps is that doing so quietly is almost impossible and draws a lot of attention.

Speak to our experts at Quickly Locksmiths for expert advice on your local community and how we can protect your house and belongings!

Prevent direct door access:

Quickly Locksmiths in Miami know all too well that the harder it is to gain direct access to a door, the harder it is to break into the property behind it. We can provide individual assessment of your property and make expert suggestions on what can be done to limit access. For example, an additional lock on your gates or a security camera placed in plain sight to act as a deterrent and an added layer of security.

There’s a thousand reasons why you could find yourself in the position where you might need to spend a night or two without a lock on your doors.

If you have a bike or have ever been camping, its likely you’ll already have a portable lock. If not, any reputable locksmith in Miami FL stock these kinds of items ready to go at cost effective prices. These types of locks offer a great temporary solution that are in fact often almost impossible to break – a big, high quality lock will usually need to be melted down to bypass!

At Quickly Locksmith, we offer commercial locksmith services around the clock and have a wealth of experience in a wide range of scenarios such as during early construction and the needs for securing these kinds of developments.

Lock the door from inside:

While this method obviously means you’ll need to either stay on the premises or have another way in and out, it may well be the best option. A good locksmith not only offers products and services, but also expert advice. At Quickly Locksmith, we can advise the best way to lock a door from the inside without using a lock, whether it’s a security bar or a strong door jam or wedge. Again, this isn’t a long-term solution, but it can offer some protection in a temporary situation where utmost security isn’t a priority. If a device such as these has been used, it’s important to make sure its effective – check to see it actually stops the door from being shaken open and is solid enough to do its job.

At any point if you’re in doubt, don’t hesitate to ask for our professional advise!

door locks - quickly locksmith Miami

Every year, the security and lock market becomes more sophisticated and offers wider selections of products to improve security in your home or business. Despite this, many locksmiths still attend the sites of burgled houses and commercial properties and part of the reason lies in the fact that consumers aren’t aware of exactly what is out there that could potentially improve their security. Here are Quickly Locksmiths’ tips for improving your property’s security for the new year and the new decade.

Get to know your property:

Quickly Locksmiths offer services for both private clientele as well as commercial real estate and our biggest tip of them all is: GET TO KNOW YOUR PROPERTY!

All reputable locksmith services can offer a security audit that will help you to reveal your property’s security risks and allow you to correct them – meaning you will be in a better position to decide on ongoing maintenance or possible necessary upgrades.

Lost Your Keys? Quick Tips for Opening Any Locked Door

schlage locks fresh installation

After you’re back inside, and you feel like you’ve gained your sense of control again, then you can resolve all other issues concerning your lost keys. But first thing is first – how to open a locked door when you have no idea where your keys are… as the leading locksmith company in Miami we’re here to teach you how to break in through your own doors, before looking for a locksmith near me to fix the rest of the problem right?

Who might have a spare key?

Think and try to remember, maybe a friend or your landlord? Perhaps you’ve left a spare key with a neighbor? If you made a spare key this last year – one of the people in your close circuit might be all the help you need. Miami locksmiths could make a spare key on the spot without using the original – so if you have no one available you just might need to call a locksmith company for the rescue!

Think of alternative entry points to your home:

In most cases, we always have this one window or back door we simply forget to lock… think and look for alternative ways to enter your property, so you could open your front door from the inside. It could be as simple as your living room window, a small hop and land on a couch, or right on top of your toilet… any way you can think of would come in handy.

Breaking into your own home:

Damaging your lock won’t serve you well as it might open the door and get you back inside but it will also require a professional Miami locksmith to fix. However, if you have some hardware available you could work around the windows locks / back door locks who are usually last secure.

How Fire Door Locks Make Emergency Exits More Secure

How Fire Door Locks Make Emergency Exits More Secure

David Davidof - Certified Locksmith Installer in Miami FL

Most big buildings and apartment blocks have a fire door with a fire door lock and all commercial locksmiths will advocate their necessity for one main reason: their efficacy and stamina. Fire doors are highly resilient and provide safety when it is most needed.

Preventing and withholding fire and explosives:

Safety measures are a crucial aspect of any commercial real-estate plan and for good reason. Its essential to plan for the worst, even if we expect and hope for the best. A fire door and fire door lock guarantee a safe location in the event of a fire for a number of reasons. Firstly, they offer compartmentalization between different rooms, guaranteeing that fire will not penetrate them for at least one hour, no matter the ferocity of the blaze. Secondly, during the planning stages, emergency exits are placed and safety protocols are agreed upon that allow for quick evacuation in the event of an emergency such as a fire.

Why would you want to lock a fire door?

We should clarify here that the lock on a fire door is not used to lock in or out. They are left unlocked at all times except for emergency situations and will lock automatically in order to prevent fire doors from losing their strength. At Quickly Locksmith we can help any beginner developer to understand this vital detail and offer suggestions on how it can be utilized safely.

When you need to have a spare key cut, our recommendation is always of course to ensure it is done by a reputable locksmith. Cutting a key accurately requires experience and skill and those that work in the stores set out in this post often lack the expertise to consistently create exact duplicates. If you find yourself caught out and need to visit somewhere else quickly, be aware of the potential problems and check the copied key looks is as close to the original as possible before you leave.

Automated kiosks:

These machines sound like a great idea. They’re quick, cheap and easy. They can often be found inside shopping malls or big retail stores such as Bed Bath & Beyond or 7-Eleven so they’re super convenient too. Most of the skill in creating a good copy of a key is down to workmanship though and it while machines are excellent at carrying out laborious tasks, the attention to the small details might not be enough to ensure the key works perfectly.

Hardware stores:

Most local hardware stores will also have locksmith services available. While they’re a step-up from an automated kiosk, they’re nothing on an experienced locksmith and should really only be trusted to create a simple copy of a key that is in good condition.

Locksmith store

Googling ‘locksmith near me’ will usually generate a fairly long list of qualified locksmiths that can offer the best service possible. Here at Quickly Locksmiths we can make a reliable copy of your key that we guarantee will work – saving you time and hassle down the line. Even if you don’t have the original and are currently without a key, we might be able to help, all while doing so at a fair price.

Why a Broken Door Lock Might Be More Serious than You Think

Why a Broken Door Lock Might Be More Serious than You Think

door locks - quickly locksmith Miami

Life gets in the way and we are all guilty from time to time of letting things slide that we really shouldn’t. Whether it’s a broken gate, a security camera that hasn’t filmed in weeks or a door lock that’s acting up, they’re all security risks that need your attention. Time is precious, but these things shouldn’t be left to wait until “tomorrow”. Put these things on your to-do list for today and get your security back up to scratch!

Take some advice from Miami’s leading locksmith.

Inviting the wrong people in:

Not every burglar is out to rob a bank or a jewelry store for a huge score. In fact, more than 40% of local burglaries are petty thieves looking for a quick pay-out. They go around looking for easy targets like that broken gate or weak door lock you’ve been putting off until tomorrow and once a thief has spotted these easy ways in, they won’t let up.

Cylinder and your door:

At the same time as repairing a broken door lock, a locksmith will be able to check the cylinder and the door. These 3 items all rely on one another to be aligned and functioning properly and when one is out of sync, the whole mechanism can be compromised. If a malfunctioning door lock is left unchecked for too long, it could end up damaging the cylinder and/or the door as well so it’s best to have a qualified locksmith take a look sooner rather than later.

DIY tips:

At Quickly Locksmith, Miami’s leading locksmith, support and advise is available to help anyone looking to fix their broken lock themselves. We can offer the right guidance to ensure you get things sorted properly and if we suspect the damage is beyond repair, we’ll point you in the right direction.

If at any time your door doesn’t open, don’t force it as you can cause damage to the lock or door. Quickly Locksmiths offer a 24 hour call out service for emergencies!
