1. Why Hire a Locksmith?

    Even after buying that shiny new lockpicking kit off the internet - which you may want to avoid because it’s only questionably legal in most states - to try to crack open that old safe you have. It may be fun to bring out your inner lockpicking-spy, but this isn’t the movies and most of us lack the skills necessary to open a door with lock picks, let alone something harder to crack, like that …Read More

  2. Preventing Car Break-Ins

    It can happen any time. Maybe you need to just pop into the post office to drop off a package. The postage is already paid, printed, and the box sealed, so you’re in the building for maybe three minutes, tops. No matter how quickly you just “pop into the store real fast,” that can still be more than enough time for a burglar to be in and out of your car and long gone with your valuables (or …Read More

  3. Unexpected Services a Locksmith Does

    It happens to all of us at one time or another - you’re running late, turn the lock on the doorknob, and rush to work before you’re counted tardy. It’s not until getting home that night that you realize your house keys are sitting just inside the door on their handy little hook. Or, even worse, you pull that locked door shut and go to lock the deadbolt only to realize you didn’t grab the h…Read More

  4. Insurance and Other Protection for your Vacation Rental

You get a full-sized, spacious home that is all yours to do with as you choose and, as an added bonus, you can make extra money by renting it out when you aren’t using it!

  5. Is Your House a Smart Home?

    Often, when most of us think of futuristic technology, we think about old shows like The Jetsons, in which everything is automated, the flying car folds down into a briefcase, and a full Thanksgiving dinner, complete with roast turkey, can be rehydrated from one small capsule. In such a technologically advanced age, there is so much we can do at the tips of our fingers with a smartphone or a table…Read More

  6. Spring Break Snafus: Avoid Calling The Locksmith!

    Have you ever experienced that feeling of being totally out of sorts for no good reason? It crops up at the most unexpected (and inconvenient) times like, for example, when you’re standing in the airport security line. You can run through your mental tally of everything you need: ID, wallet, car keys, suitcase, easy to remove shoes. Yet, even as you stand there waiting, you find yourself growing…Read More

  7. Is Your Vacation Rental Ready for Spring Break?

    As we approach March, that means countless tourists, college students, and other beachgoers are on their way to enjoy as much of the Florida sun and fun as possible.

The first step, of course, is t…Read More

  8. How Locksmithing Works

    When you lock yourself out of your house or apartment accidentally, your first thought is probably to check and see if you happened to leave a window open or if you can somehow climb that trellis to reach your second story patio and go in the back door. If you didn’t accidentally leave a window unlocked - and for home security’s sake, we hope you didn’t! - don’t try to strongarm your way i…Read More

  9. How Keyless Entry Works

    One of the most interesting recent features developed for new cars recently was the advent of keyless entry and keyless ignition. In new cars, physical keys have become a backup measure in case the battery in the key fob dies, not to actually allow entry or start a car. It sounds a little bit like something out of The Jetsons. Given that they are more secure and make life easier, doesn’t it make…Read More

  10. How Home Security Systems Work

    According to statistics put out by the FBI, the average annual burglary count every year is more than two million. This is unlawful entry into a structure to commit a crime, so that includes vehicles, homes, businesses, and more. Even split between so many different subheadings of different structures, that’s a lot of theft each year! Anyone who has been burglarized can tell you that, even if yo…Read More
