When Should I Change My Locks?

In order to safeguard your home, your family and your belongings, it’s always a good idea to frequently change your locks. Generally, it’s recommended you change your locks when either moving into a new home, every 7-10 years or if you happen to lose a key. You should also change the locks if you are the victim of a recent burglary.

Why Type of Locks Should I Use?

If you have ever surveyed the shelves at your local home improvement store, you may have noticed just how many choices there are when it comes to the type of locks to use on the doors of your home. While there are a number of top rated brands, most locksmiths tend to recommend British standard locks because they are secure, safe and easy to install.

How Do I Change My Locks?

You can easily and quickly install locks on your doors by following the directions on the box of the lock system you have purchased. If you aren’t one who feels comfortable taking on DIY projects such as this, it’s best to call on a local locksmith that can ensure your locks are properly installed in a timely manner.
