Frequently Asked Questions
Is it necessary that I hire a locksmith company with good reputation? How can I duplicate my keys that are marked “Do Not Duplicate”?
Hiring a reliable locksmith will ensure the safety of your valuable properties. Generally, reliable locksmiths are licensed and bonded so, you’ll easily recognize them. Reliable locksmiths are also capable of giving exceptional services and they have an affordable price list.
It’s easy to duplicate marked keys. You just need to make an authorization letter. The letter will consist of the following information: type of key to be duplicated, quantity of keys to be duplicated, your name and contact number and the name of person who will get the keys. If you will be the one who will pick up the keys, you will fill up a Request for Restricted keys form.
I am having difficulty locking and unlocking my lock. What should I do? I have lost my house keys.
In most cases, the problem is not in your lock but in the alignment of the door and frame. Look for some things that might be blocking your threshold and your door. Twist and turn your frame and door for any damage. The door must successfully rest when you stop it and stay there. Once your door springs open, the problem might be in the hinges. The temperature might also contribute to swelling and warping of your car door. Wooden doors and frames are usually affected by the humidity and temperature. On the other hand, metal doors will get rusty after a long time.
Do I need to install new locks?
It’s not a good move to immediately change your house locks. This will only cost you lots of money.

You will only have new set of keys for your house and your house will be exclusively access by your family members and relatives only.
