Q: What’s involved in restricted key systems?
A: Restricted key systems bestow all managerial powers involved with a lock or a system of locks all onto one or more specific people. This person (or peoples) is the only one who can decide whether to duplicate a key or issue a key to someone else—as well as have any designated locks repaired, replaced, rekeyed, or be serviced in general. In addition, this restricted key system enables someone to have total control over the keys and locks in a particular facility.
Q: My rim cylinder sustained serious damage; can it be repaired, or must it be replaced?
A: Oftentimes, rim cylinders are somewhat less resilient than other, more complex, stronger cylinder. However, it is very difficult for many locks function after years of service. Therefore, we recommend changing the locks if it malfunction.
Q: How do I choose a reliable locksmith?
A: When it comes to your home/business security, you must be sure that there are no mistakes. In addition, you have to make sure that the job is done in a professional manner, and if there are any problems you have someone to talk to. After all, you entrust the keys to your house’s locks in the hands of a stranger.
Here are some points to consider:
- Always ask for a price! – Although it is not always possible to get an accurate quote for complicated jobs. For simple jobs such as car lockout, it is pretty reasonable to get a quote, even if it is a rough one. Don’t be satisfied with service call + labor, ask what the labor is!
- When the technician arrives, make sure he has signs on his truck with the company name, company logo, and contact number. Organized companies will make sure that their logo is well shown and their customers know how to reach them.
- Look for affiliates with known companies such as insurance companies and roadside assistance.
