It’s probably happened to us all before. You come back to your car after shopping or a night out on the town and you start fumbling for your keys only to see them still dangling from the ignition. Then you realize the doors are locked! It’s happened to me a couple of times. Not as much now that we have modern door locking systems in our vehicles.

Most people are familiar with the basic services of a locksmith like getting you back in your car or coming to your home or business to replace door locks. But they also offer other services that you might not be aware of.

Safe Installation

If you are thinking of having a safe installed in your home or business you can call Durham locksmith to handle this for you. They are experienced in dealing with a lot of different models of safes and can install your safe the right way. A safe needs to be secured to the floor or wall to make it harder for a thief to walk off with your valuables. Locksmiths have the tools to make this job a snap and most of the time is more affordable than hiring a contractor to do this type of work.

Chip Key Duplication

Most modern cars have a chip in the key that communicates with the computer in the car. This chip is programmed to your specific car and a key that is not programmed to your car will not be able to start the engine. A locksmith with some experience with these types of keys can program the chip and provide you with all of the spare keys you may need.

Replace Your Car Ignition

Let’s say you get your key stuck in your ignition switch and the only way to get it out is to remove the ignition or drill it out. A locksmith can provide these services also. They can remove the key and if they are experienced they can replace the entire ignition for you.

Master Key Locks

Why keep up with dozens of keys for your business? Why not just get master locks with one master key? This makes things so much simpler. You can have many different locks that you give your employees and their individual keys will only work where you give them permission. Meanwhile your master key will work on all locks.
