Fast 24 hour emergency locksmith service!
To help you feel secured and possess that elusive peace of mind, here are some questions you might have about our services. We answer your questions about locks and keys and give you solutions when the key doesn't turn easily and you have similar issues.
If my key seems difficult to turn, do I need to force it in?
According to the experts at Locksmith Lemon Grove, this is not a safe option. Keep this is mind: exertion of force will only trigger pressure inside the key and the lock. Thus, it faces the tendency of a break off. Make sure that there isn't any rust on it, or that is might have been damaged.
What exactly is a laser cut key?
This type of key is not cut with the use of lasers. Rather it has something to do with the milling located at the side, and not on either top or bottom part of the key. This type of keying is considered as higher security. The only problem to having this type of key is that since this is a new technology, getting a replacement may be challenging.
How can I make a key and lock completely exclusive to me?
Ask for a combination lock from Locksmith Lemon Grove. This normally has a key way on both the front and the back. It is completely exclusive to your premises and will protect you well.
What's the most significant security measure?
There are plenty of things you can do to keep a secure home but above all you must have good door locks. Have the locks replaced periodically, repair their problems immediately but also keep every corner of your yard lit, install alarms and motion detectors.
How do I choose a new lock?
Check the grade and the make first. Pay attention to the throw of the bolt and to the number of pins of the keying system.
Can you cut me a key based on my car's VIN number?
In most cases, yes. You will get a brand new key that is exactly the same as your original key. But if your locks have been changed or damaged, the key won't work. And if your car has a transponder chip, it will need to be properly programmed before it will start your ignition. We will need you to bring us your original key and verification of ownership along with the VIN number to make your new key.
