How do you open a trunk without a key?

Unlocking locked car in Miami FL using locksmiths Technics for opening the car safely

Forgot your keys inside your trunk? Don’t cry too hard, it happens to everyone! 

If you have a Slim Jim available / something else you could use to open your front door- we have a few DIY tips!

If you don’t have any tools on you, check what’s around- you could call a locksmith, but it might take up to 20 min response time for him to get to you and another 5 to 10 min to open the trunk door- it’s simple and won’t cost you more than 50$, so either way- you’re safe!

First – unlock your cars’ doors to get inside:

Use the Slim Jim to gently unlock and open your car door; first try to slide the hook of your Slim Jim inside, through the passengers’ side window. When inside, feel around to find the locking mechanism of your car. It will usually be right next to the window, on your car door handle. Hook the rod to the locking mechanism, to unlock you have to make sure the Slim Jim is stuck well inside the lock rod, then pull it up gently until you hear your normal unlocking click sound – congratulations! Your car is now unlocked!

When inside – work the trunk:

Once you’ve unlocked your car you can easily pull the handle (from outside) and get inside. Then, open the trunk by pulling the manual release, usually located in the drivers’ side, underneath your steering wheel. In case the release is stuck, head to the back seat to manually release the lever (you have to fold the back seat down to access your trunk).

Last but not least!

When you’re inside your trunk release the safety lever, usually located near the trunks’ back / front. This one is important as this lever is there to protect you and prevent anyone from being locked inside a trunk. Once you pull the lever – your trunk door will open immediately!

Can a locksmith make a lock from a key?

old locks we found in our locksmiths warehouse

YES! It’s not easy, and not a rapid process – but a certified locksmith can definitely make a lock just from a single key!

Call your local Miami locksmith:

In most cases we get a call about re-keying. It tends to do the other way around- customers who lost their key, and therefore want a new set of keys without the original. Just to be totally clear here- any professional certified locksmith can make a spare key without the original, on the spot, just by working with your lock – this is a simple, cost effective procedure that leaves you with a brand new- solid set of keys!

However, if you don’t have the actual lock- and you want to make a new one just based on an existing key it would be a whole different world, might take some time and won’t work with any lock…

What can be done!

What we can always do with just a key is to make a strong solid old school lock! As a professional certified locksmith company we provide residential and commercial locksmith services all over Miami and we’re the first to declare old locks as rock solid. 

They may not be the first choice for a modern elegant office space / residential temporary housing – but they are still the leading lock choice for homes around the world!

Don’t forget – Safety first!

When there are so many available options for a new lock- one would have to wonder, why do you want to make a new lock based on a key alone? No judgment here of course, we’ve honestly heard it all by now, and can reassure you – it is possible, we can make a new lock with a key! But at the same time, not any lock is worth making, it might prove to be an expansive worthless process.

How to fix a lock that came out of its doorknob

Unlocking and Changing locks at a residential home in Miami FL

How to fix a lock that came out of its doorknob?

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

In most cases all that is needed to fix a lock that has fallen out of position is to re-strengthen the same areas (after all, they were chosen for a reason!) New material such as screws or locksmith super glue are the first port of call but should be monitored over a couple of days to ensure it stays strong. It must be noted though that this tip is only useful if the lock is otherwise strong and in good overall condition. If not, call your local locksmith.

First, check the damage:

Sometimes a broken lock can be the result of a poorly aligned locking mechanism or other malfunction that adds constant pressure with each latch strike or door level movement. When this is the case, a certified locksmith will explain the options available and you may well be surprised that the fix is relatively simple and cost effective. We are available to help any time, any day, so just give us a call!

Second, check the door:

If the lock came out of its doorknob soon after it became loose, it’s possible no further damage was created to the door. However, if the lock rattled around for weeks or months, it’s likely that further damage could have been inflicted to the door itself by the heavy lock metal. If you have a loose lock, it’s best to have it looked at sooner rather than later to avoid this. Our expert locksmiths can check to see if the door is strong enough to reassemble the loose lock or if a new lock is required. Again you might well be surprised at how cost effective this can be!

Look inside your lock:

If the lock has already fallen out, you can at least now take it to your lock locksmith so they can give you an honest and expert opinion. If the door itself is strong and didn’t suffer any damage, the lock can usually be fixed on the spot for less than $20 and reattached easily to give a cheap AND safe result.

How to Burglar Proof Doors

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

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.

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.

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!

What to Expect from Your Local Lock Shop

What to Expect from Your Local Lock Shop

Quickly Locksmith Miami Local Locksmith Shop In Downtown Miami FL

A locksmith’s skill and craft can sometimes be overlooked and you’d be forgiven for thinking a low-price option for a quick job is OK. A quick google search for ‘locksmith near me’ or ‘local locksmith in Miami’ will generate a long list of ‘professionals’, but who should you chose? Well money isn’t everything and it’s important to consider the overall value. Quickly Locksmiths offer professional services for residential and commercial properties as well as automobiles.

For those of you outside of Florida though, we’ll forgive you for not calling us. Here’s a list of our top tips on what to look for in a more local locksmith.

Certification, certification, certification!

When your locksmith is certified, it gives you a lot of peace of mind and allows you to rest assured that whatever the job is, it will be carried out to the best standard. In order to gain certification, a locksmith goes through rigorous training. Their skill is honed over a period of time, too; this is not a month gig. Finally, all work carried out by a certified locksmith will be insured – both to the products installed and to your property. In the unlikely event that issues arise later on, this certification is important for any potential insurance claim!

Looking for a local locksmith:

At Quickly Locksmiths in Miami, we have a store that you can visit and speak to our team of experts. Some locksmiths may not operate out of a store and while this doesn’t necessarily equal a problem, there are definitely benefits to being able to visit a physical location. A store is a point of contact for any products or spares you might need in the future and good staff will always be happy to offer advice. Some locksmiths found online that don’t operate from a store may well be certified and professional, but many aren’t and may well be here today and gone tomorrow. Our advice? Look for a store!

Availability is key:

When you need a locksmith, chances are you need them soon. When you’re locked out and/or its an emergency, having to wait for upwards of 30 minutes can seem like an age. At Miami’s leading locksmith, Quality Locksmiths offer an impressive 15-minute response time – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Keep these tips in mind when searching for a locksmith so you don’t end up calling someone unreliable.

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

Smart gates, smart locks and 360 surround security cameras all represent the pinnacle of current technology for securing your home, but the annual costs all add up and not everyone is in the financial position to go down this route. At Quickly Locksmith here in Miami, we are available to help if a smart security system is what you desire, but even if it isn’t and your budget is slightly more modest, there are a range of other solutions to choose from. Here are some of our suggestions on how to improve your home’s security, even with a tight budget.

Make sure the door and lock match well:

Smart locks and high-end security systems definitely have their place, but they’re just not necessary for many installations. Many consumers are in the market for a good quality, solid lock to secure their front and rear doors and we’d agree with this idea. Ensuring you chose a good quality lock is important as the leading brands only require minimal ongoing maintenance. Parts are usually available cheaply and guides can be found online for the DIY-enthusiasts among-st you.

What’s important to watch out for is that the materials match each other in their strength. For example, a strong lock used with a weak door can lead to problems such as the cylinder cracking the frame from the inside which can be a costly repair. A qualified locksmith can recommend a good combination of lock and door to match any budget.

Other tricks:

At Quickly Locksmith we also offer commercial locksmith services in Miami and one thing that we often suggest to small business and residential customers alike is to place a small camera in plain sight. It doesn’t even really have to be wired in and working as its presence along can offer a strong deterrent to would-be thieves.

As the leading commercial locksmith service in Miami, we’ve also learned that sometimes an alarm is a good investment. Again, it doesn’t even need to be connected to an ongoing service and the sound alone can be enough to send an unwitting burglar on their way.

Office Security: Protecting Your Commercial Property

Our Local Locksmith Technician provides locksmith services for Armani stores In Miami FL

It can be quite surprising to know just how vulnerable some commercial properties actually are. What’s more, the biggest shocker of all is that most small to medium sized business owners aren’t even aware of the possible security risks their commercial properties are at risk to.

At Quickly Locksmiths, we’re not in the game of trying to scare you into action – many of the risks such as burglary are obvious. Instead, we want to work with you to keep your business and commercial property safe. We offer a range of services that can help including a 24/7 emergency call out by one of our experienced certified locksmiths should it be necessary!

Reliable security audits:

Every time your business goes through a significant change, whether it’s the beginning stages, moving into a new commercial property or expanding your staff and/or locations, it’s the perfect time to have a security audit carried out. Quickly Locksmiths can help, enabling you to stay on top of security and continue to be well informed. You wouldn’t risk it with other aspects of your business, so don’t let the side down with something so important.

Most emergency locksmiths that deal with after hours break-ins would agree that negligence or cost-cutting is rarely the reason and the culprit is often a lack of information. A well carried out security audit can bring to your attention all of the soft spots and give you the information to allow you to make informed decision on what needs to be done.

Internal vs external threats:

A commercial locksmith is insured and experienced and we keep up to date with the latest technological innovations in the world of security. However, knowledge is key! When deciding how to secure things properly, it’s important to think about everyone who access your premises on a daily basis. Think maintenance workers, employees, clientele, people walking close by and any nearby construction workers. It’s not to suggest that everyone is a suspect. On the contrary, we’re merely suggesting that everything should be considered and that kind of information is exactly what an audit can provide.

When looking for an emergency 24-hour locksmith, don’t hesitate to call Quickly Locksmiths for all your commercial and residential needs.

How to Improve Your Front Doors’ security?

How to Improve Your Front Doors' security?

local locksmith services for residential properties in Miami

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!
