    Popular Article On Why Locks Are Important

    Think Home Security by Choosing the Right Door Locks by TC Thorn

    You want to keep your home and your family safe, right?

    Did you know most building codes don't even require locks on doors?

    The first step to a good home security plan is having solid doors and windows in place, and this includes locks. Not all locks are created equal, and some older ones are downright flimsy.

    If you think someone could kick open your door, it's probably time to go lock shopping. Likewise, if you live in an apartment or a house where the locks haven't been changed since you moved in, changing the locks makes a lot of sense. There's just no way of knowing how many spare copies of your keys are out there.

    Let's take a look at what you can do to make sure your doors aren't the weakest part of your home security plan:

    Install Grade 1 ANSI (American National Standards Institute) designation deadbolt type locks on exterior doors, doors between living spaces and attached garages, and garage man doors (even if the garage is separate from the house--most garages are full of tools a burglar could use to break into your home).

    Why deadbolts?

    Burglars know they are more work. If they can't easily kick in a door, pick a lock, or drill out a door lock, they're likely to move onto an easier target. Just having solid deadbolt locks tells a burglar you care about home security, and you may very well have a full-fledged home security system in place. That's something they generally don't want to mess with.

    For other locks on your doors, stick with solid Grade 1 ANSI designated locks. Make sure to practice key control (i.e. don't lend copies of your key out to everyone and their relatives), since many keys can simply be copied by local hardware stores.

    In-home help, in particular, can be troublesome, especially if they're fired and left disgruntled, or they have acquaintances who burglarize homes (this is more common than you might think). Also be wary because mechanics can copy your house keys while your car is being worked on (this can be avoided by simply not giving them the house key along with the car key when you have work done).

    To further protect yourself, consider going with a manufacturer that puts out keys that can't be copied by anyone except locksmiths or by the manufacturers themselves (these people keep records and won't let just anybody copy your key).

    Yes, this kind of key control can be a bit of an inconvenience, but it goes a long ways toward making your home more secure.

    Some other door lock features to look far are:

    -High Security Strike Plates (while all door locks come with strike plates, not all of them do much; a high-security version has screw holes that are staggered so they don't penetrate the same grain of wood, which makes it difficult for a burglar to split the wood door frame or wall framing with a kick or other impact).

    -Saw-resistant Bolts for DeadLocks

    -Captured Key or Double Cylinder Deadbolt Locks (these have keyholes on both sides, so a burglar can't break open a window pane next to the door, reach in, and disengage the lock from the inside--consider this type of lock a must if you have glass near your door).

    Now you're thinking about how important locks are to a home security plan. Compared to alarms and security cameras and other high-tech solutions you can purchase, doors and windows are inexpensive to secure, and yet they are the first best defense in keeping out burglars.

    Locksmith Licensing

    It's coming! In fact it's already here in at least 9 states in the USA.

    The great state of Tennessee just introduced a bill for licensing.

    Below is a recent article about the issue from The Mountain Press.


    It's nice when you drive down the road and see a police officer helping a motorist unlock the door of their vehicle. It's a good sign, like seeing an officer working with children or giving directions to tourists. But unlocking some of these modern cars is a tricky thing, even dangerous. Side air bags can be set off, and there can be damage to the window or lock from trying to force open the door.
    For those reasons and more, a new state law has kicked in that prevents police officers from providing locksmithing services to motorists. While it may seem as if we've lost a special connection and public service, in fact we are preventing problems and backlash.
    The Locksmith Licensing Act of 2006 provides that only professionally licensed locksmiths can offer those services. It's the same thinking that requires a license for massage therapists, real estate agents and hairdressers. It's not designed to restrict trade or keep people from earning a living. It's meant to ensure that those who do those jobs have the training and expertise to perform the tasks.
    Police officers do not. Police officers are trained in law enforcement, in responding to emergencies and investigating crime. They are not necessarily trained, nor should they be, in how to unlock a motorist's car. While that may be the very definition of a public servant, in fact there are inherent risks in officers trying to unlock a vehicle car. If the car is damaged in such an effort, who's at fault? If an air bag deploys accidentally during the try to open the car, who's at fault?
    Police chiefs and their officers certainly have mixed feelings about the new law, and for sure motorists don't like it. In Pigeon Forge officers regularly helped stranded motorists. It was a nice touch assisting the tourists, and certainly left those who got the help having good thoughts about the city they just visited. But the downside and potential problems overwhelmed the good that was done. And with what surely was some intensive lobbying by the locksmith fraternity, the law has been enacted.
    Now when you call the police station they'll give you a list of professional locksmiths you can contact for assistance, or be directed to telephone listings for others. Police will call a locksmith if asked to by the motorist. But no more jimmying open a car door or trying to figure out the myriad kinds of locks that you find on cars these days. Yes, a certain Mayberryesque service has been lost, but in this case, it's really the best thing.

    Increasing the Burglars fear and Reducing Your Own

    Increasing the Burglar's Fear and Reducing Your Own. by Martin Underwood


    If we hear about a burglary, perhaps in our own neighborhood, it increases the fear that we ourselves may get a visit from a burglar. This is a natural reaction.

    If we are away from our home for the day, perhaps at work, we might even spend the day worrying what we might find when we arrive back home. If a house on your block got broken into what is there to stop your house being burgled is the reasoning you may make. This reasoning is actually quite healthy, if you fear being burgled you may take steps to prevent it from happening.

    However, fearing burglary too much is not healthy, worrying too much about being burgled could stop you from living a happy and enjoyable life. You could end up a prisoner in your own home if you convince yourself that criminals are waiting to break in if you even think about going out.

    Not giving any consideration at all to the fact that many homes do get burgled and yours could be one of them is, on the other hand, extremely foolhardy. Taking the attitude that you need not take any home security precautions will likely mean that you will come home to find that you have had a visit from the bad guys.

    Home security precautions do two things, they reduce the likelihood of a break in and they reduce your fear of a break in.

    Taking reasonable steps to protect your home improves the chances that a burglar will leave your home alone and look for one less protected. Installing a capable alarm system will go a long way to decrease the chance of coming home to find that you have been burgled. Likewise the knowledge that you have effective locks fitted to your windows and doors will help you to feel more secure. Joining and actively participating in your local neighborhood watch is one of the most effective things you can do to avoid being a victim. Neighbor looking out for neighbor helps reduce the fear of burglary.

    You are not the only one that knows fear. The burglar fears being caught. He knows that the longer he takes to burgle your home the greater chance he has of being caught. He knows that the more noise that he makes when breaking in to your home the more it is likely that the police will be alerted. He knows that the more he is exposed the greater chance he has of being spotted.

    The more you can increase the burglar's fear the less you are at risk, and the less you are at risk, the less fear you have. Increasing the burglar's fear and reducing your own must be a good thing.

    There is nothing that you can do to completely take away the risk of being burgled but if you have a good home security alarm system the burglar will likely fear setting it off. If you have good quality locks fitted the burglar will likely fear it will take him too long to defeat them and he will make too much noise doing it. If you have good outside security lighting and have your neighbors looking out for you the burglar will fear being spotted.

    It may not be a good thing to be completely unafraid of burglars, it could make you careless, but good home security precautions can help reduce your fear so that your life is less impacted by it. And good home security precautions can increase the burglar's fear so that he leaves your home alone.

    Keyless Door Locks

    Article I came across today...

    High Priority for Locksmiths by Graham Williams


    Shunted locks are just one of the items an emergency locksmith must know well. A shunt is the process of turning aside or moving to an alternate course, a bypass. Shunted locks come in different brands. One of those brands is that of an a British company named Bramah. The prices for a Bramah shunted lock can go up to $193. These locks are made for wooden doors, metal doors, sliding doors, and cabinets.

    A shunt switch is used in a vandal-resistant mortise lock. These locks are used in places such as emergency exits. The complexity of these alarm locks requires educated intelligence on the part of the locksmith who may be required to repair or replace such a lock.

    Locksmiths may also be called in a situation where an exit or emergency door has been locked or jammed. There are doors that must legally remain unlocked. Any time they have become illegally obstructed, the locksmith may be called to undo the damage. Sometimes these doors are obstructed because of poor management or because of disgruntled employees.

    Locksmiths can be especially important to hospitals, convalescent homes, ambulance services, and police stations. Emergency and health care facilities are of high priority in a locksmith business.

    Although some people would categorize simply being locked out of their vehicle as an emergency, there are situations that are of a higher priority. If someone's health or life is at stake or if a criminal situation occurs that requires immediate response, the priority must be put on these situations.

    Some emergency locksmith businesses that advertise fast service operate from Atlanta, Georgia to San Francisco, California. There are several businesses that operate out of many offices across the United States.

    One has to be especially careful about hiring an emergency locksmith. There have been instances where locksmiths who have operated for years have been found to incorrectly bill the customers out of greed. One locksmith was fired from a hospital after eighteen years of service because he became greedy. He had an elaborate scheme which involved two other employees as well as him. This is an exception to the norm, though.

    We have to place our trust in someone, and there are many locksmiths who work hard to earn the trust and deserve it. Just as there are people in other professions who turn bad, there are also bad locksmiths. It doesn't make the profession bad, just that person. In general it is an honorable and respected position and the men and women who enter it must go through a lot to become professionals, including becoming registered in a way that allows the police department and the Better Business Bureau to investigate their background. The majority are proud of their upstanding public image and work hard to maintain control of it.

    Locksmiths working with emergency personnel and police are another way they keep us safe. They repair damage done by criminals, install systems that make it harder for criminals to gain illegal entry, and provide us with a sense of inner peace.

    The BiLock key system utilises up to 12 chambers with 4 depths per chamber. The numerical sum of these combinations gives 16,777,216 actual key combinations per profile. Powerful Master Key Systems can be generated from these combinations. It also makes possible an authentic and convenient one key system for each individual user authorised to access any particular area, building or group of buildings.

    Authorised BiLock agents use a computerised master key generation system, which allows them to build seriously complex Master Key Systems without compromising system security.

    Having been a past recipient of two prestigious Australian Design Awards for innovation excellence and the Australian Government's Small Business and Manufacturer of the Year Awards, the Quality Assured, Australian Lock Company, stands in good stead to further its national and international sales of Bilock high security locking systems.

    With a modern 3400 square meter factory just 1.5 hours South of Sydney and a network of more than 140 accredited locksmith agents Australia-wide, the Company is reportedly this nation's only fully Australian owned, exporter of Australian made, high security lock cylinder and keying systems. That system is Bilock which offers a gamut of features including pick resistance, the unique QCC (interchangeable core), more than 350 cylinder types, 16.7 million combinations per profile, legal protection, incomparable key control, 8,500 key head colour combinations and a unique dual-bladed key with Braille option.

In addition, many Banks in Australia and major government departments use Bilock. In fact, the Western Australian Police Services use Bilock exclusively to secure all their stations and facilities throughout the state on an enviable master key system that provides the absolute premium in key control.

    The Company has built a global market by ensuring flexibility in both design and application. Our unique commitment to project-specific product requirements and our expanding global network of agents ensure most high security lock requirements world-wide can now be met by Australian Lock. Now the Company offers QCC and colour coded construction keying, sales of Bilock have never been stronger.

    Wireless Remote-Controlled Pan/Tilt Camera System

    The Wireless Remote-Controlled Pan And Tilt Surveillance Camera.
    This is the remote-controlled surveillance camera that pans and tilts at a touch of a button for a range of motion unavailable in lesser cameras, and it sends crystal clear images and audio to an LCD on the handheld remote, allowing real-time monitoring from up to 330' away. Unlike cameras rooted in a fixed position, this one pans 210 and tilts 63 for an optimal field-of-view. The remote's 2.5" thin film transistor LCD has a 480 x 234 resolution, and infrared LEDs in the camera allow nighttime observation up to 16' from the camera lens. The 2.4 GHz wireless signal operates on three different channels, minimizing interference, and the device includes an AV cable for connecting to a television. Includes earphones and AC adapters for camera and receiver. Receiver requires 4 AAA batteries. Camera: 5" H x 4 1/3" D x 4" W. (9 oz.) Receiver: 6" H x 2 2/3" W x 1" D. (6 oz.)

    $249.95 Limited time only.

    Network Security

    Arguably the biggest advancement in CCTV security in the last 25 years is the wide scale advancement of Network Security (aka Wireless CCTV)

    Wireless PTZ (Pan/Tilt/Zoom) cameras have been surfacing in the marketplace with more vigour recently due to the market demanding increased functions for decreased infrastructure costs.

    Aving News Network, one of the global leaders in security industry reporting, recently interviewed Anders Laurin, Vice President of AXIS, one of the top 10 network security firms in Sweden.

    The future of CCTV in many parts of the world is changing. Consumers are demanding more user friendly equipment, wireless access to that equipment and having it software driven rather than hardware driven.

    USB padlock


    Came across this new device today. A USB Combination Padlock. Does this open up possibilities?

    Post revisted - Pick Proof Lock (& Bump Proof)




    I was sitting here thinking about the bumping phenomena that is so relevant today and got reminded about our signature product Bilock.

    Bilock is without doubt the simplest, easiest and most user friendly security product to evolve since the invention of the modern pin tumbler mechanism.

    Tele-conferencing with Mebeam

    Mentioned previously on this site, I have been working with a very talented Australian programmer for the last few years in development of a video conferencing tool and application that can be used over the world wide web and best of all it is completely FREE!.

    Mebeam is a completely new way to have real time - live, super fast video and audio connections with friends, family or business contacts.

    The only requirements are broadband connections (for better quality), a webcam (with microphone if possible), speakers and/or headset.

    There is no program to download, it is very user friendly, easy to use. Simply open your browser and type in http://www.mebeam.com/ into your address bar. The instructions that appear are self explanatory. To test it out, click on testroom. If there is a conversation happening (and there often is) you can see what it's like.

    August 10, 2007

    Locks210.com (Master Key Systems America LLC) is very pleased to have become a full member of The Society Of Professional Locksmiths (SOPL).This new organisation brings together many of the industries leaders in forming a super professional and ethical society.

    One of the prime purposes of SOPL, is to foster the continued growth of the locksmith industry through superior training opportunities with the Security Technical Institute.

    "The Security Technical Institute offers educational programs with a "blended" learning environment utilizing the power of the Internet to deliver lesson plans, testing, interactive chat, forums, SCORM/AICC presentations, and much more. Learner participation is archived along with historical proficiency performance for all your accreditation needs. STI is a depository for the delivery of educational material developed for you to succeed in your career as a provider of security related services."

    With many jurisdictions considering and implementing legislation to license locksmiths, the same authorities are also looking to provide certified training courses aimed at producing suitably qualified and authorised technicians.

    The incredible depth of modules and format of training, is a testament to the many long hours and initiatives employed by the principals, in developing this clearly superior training regimen.

    Currently there are 9 states in the USA that have enacted licensing of the trade and a further 16 states have legislation in discussion. One of the common stumbling blocks in many legislative discussions, happens to be the lack of suitable training programs for technicians.

    Other industries have seen fit to address educational requirements as a fundamental ingredient of licensing legislation.

    With the forward thinking initiatives of SOPL and The Security Technical Institute, it may become easier for new jurisdictions to enact legislation thereby protecting both consumers and technicians alike.

    Medeco M3 locks bumped and picked

    For quite some time now, I have been extolling the virtues of the Bilock lock system and continually explaining to all, the misleading statements being bandied about by Medeco and certain locksport groups that the Medeco product was supposedly bump proof.

    This week at DefCon 15, evidence was produced exposing Medeco locks are indeed susceptible to bumping and picking.

    Here is a video showing a 12 year old girl bumping a Medeco M3 cylinder.

    Bioaxxis BD1 - Fingerprint scanner deadbolt.



    I have just returned from ALOA, the national conference of the Associated Locksmiths Of America, where I learned about the many innovative products available to the security industry.
    One such product is the Bioaxxis BD1 biometric deadbolt lock.

    This sensational product is a major improvement in biometric locking systems and surprisingly reasonably priced. It is also aesthetically pleasing.

    Perhaps the bigger benefit is the ability to use a conventional rim cylinder as the key overide mechanism. This is particularly useful for locksmiths and access control companies because this negates the need for special additional purchase cylinders.

    Features:



  • Five pin tumbler rekeyable KW1 keyway, as compared to most biometric locks with proprietary keyways (Unique Feature)


  • Includes three nickel plated brass keys (Unique Feature)


  • Solid brass cylinder plug (Unique Feature)


  • One inch brass deadbolt with case-hardened steel roller pin to resist sawing, as compared to hollow tin deadbolts for most other biometric locks (Unique Feature)


  • Each lock package includes one 60mm and one 70mm backset, as compared to more damage-prone adjustable backsets (Unique Feature)


  • Certified heavy-duty deadbolt (Unique Feature)


  • High-quality motor is rated for 800,000 operations (Unique Feature)


  • Weatherproof - Fully resistant to rain, snow, temperature extremes, humidity, UV and dust. No other biometric deadbolt can make these claims (Unique Feature)


  • Two Year Warranty - as compared to most locks with a one year warranty (Unique Feature)


  • Deadbolt is mounted internally through the door for better security, as opposed to externally on the door like many other biometric deadbolts


  • Elegant and contemporary appearance


  • Non-Handed - will fit any left or right handed door


  • Additional security added with keyhole cover


  • Up to 30 users (each user can scan fingerprint 2 times for total of 60 fingerprints)


  • Sliding weather cover triggers sensor to power on automatically


  • Sliding weather cover also triggers deadbolt to re-engage (no tricky buttons to push or PIN Codes to recall)


  • Easy to install


  • Easy to program and operate


  • Battery operation with low battery alert - non-volatile memory will not delete stored fingerprints (even if batteries expire)


    Locks210.com will be including this product in our inventory in the very near future.

    Testimonials

    Danny was very professional and friendly at the same time. He not only gave me the quote and fixed the exterior door and explained his work. He was prompt and upfront about the work and did the work. He came in time took care of it on the same day. (Sasheethn K St Louis MO) June 2018d out problems but assured not urgent. Please feel free to have Danny pass out my number for my total experience review 314-351-5553

    Charlie M. (St Louis, MO) November 2015


    Danny was pleasure to meet and was very knowledgable. He explained several lock replacement options but I decided none of them were a good fit for a storm door, however, I did replace a lock on my entry door with a type of lock I had never seen before. I would highly recommend this company.
    Patricia J (Bridgeton, MO) March 2014
    They were prompt and showed up when he said he would show up. He knew his stuff. I had ordered new handles and he was honest enough to say that we don't need them that he can fix the doors and he did. Made me lock and unlock my doors to his satisfaction so that I knew what to do. Am very, very pleased with the service and cost.
    Joyce K (Glencoe, MO) May 2015

    Showed up on time for appointment. Was very knowledgeable about the project and offered a solution beyond what I asked to be done.
    Stephen G (Chesterfield, MO) May 2015


    Daniel was right on time, assessed the problems I had with two doors, made the repairs, and explained what caused the problems to begin with .... He is a "door expert" and a true professional. I highly recommend him.

    Vince V (St. Louis MO) May, 2015




    Danny was fabulous! He went over my concerns and he provided me with more than a fair quote. He was there when he said he was going to be there. I would highly recommend Danny. Cheers!
    Denise S (Imperial, MO) May 8, 2014

    Hired Danny to re-key locks on "new" house purchase. He advised to replace with new deadbolts & door knobs on 3 entry doors instead which I agreed with. All doors have 1 matching key & the safety of excellent quality product & workmanship. He also added new strike plate to door frame to complete project.. I recommend as your 1st & only call to a Locksmith.

    Denise F (St. Louis, MO) April 3, 2014


    Danny was very helpful in solving a pretty complex problem involving many lock.
    Scott C (Eureka, MO) March 27, 2014




    Needed patio door track to run smoothly. Arrived early, fixed door and explained what he was doing during repair. Quick and easy. Door works great, my wife will now speak to me, and I've become a better dancer.

    Mike W. (Arnold/Oakville MO) July 2013


    The owner spent a longtime with me on the phone helping diagnosis the problem. He was on-time, friendly and helped resolve my issue. I will definitely use him again!

    Chris C (Lake St Louis, MO) July 2013


    I had a very pleasant experience with Master Key Systems. They came out, did the job (which took longer than expected) and they did not change the price they quoted me. Now, I am not certain that it was a great value for the money because I don't have a comparison, but they did what they said, when they said, for the price they said. Enough said!!!

    Antonio B (Saint Louis, Missouri) March 2013


    Professional.. Upfront about charges. Fixed the sticky door within 20 minutes. I will recommend Master Key for exterior door issues.
    Muthu R (Ballwin, MO) July 2012


    Danny was a master craftsman, knowledgable and professional. I will be calling on him again in the future as well as passing on his services to friends and family.

    Marsha L (Saint Louis, MO) July 2012


    Danny was excellent! I called him on a Monday to fix a sliding glass door. He happened to have the exact part we needed (and it was not an easy find - we had looked everywhere) and he came over Tuesday evening. He stayed until 8:00 until the job was done, and cleaned up afterwards. He was courteous, professional, and efficient! I could not be happier!

    Rachel P Maryland Heights, MO (July 2012)


    He did an excellent job. Got there on time and quickly solved the issue. Was very pleasant and explained the situation and how to keep the door from sticking in the future. Would definitely use Master Key LLC again!

    Neil F. (Saint Louis, MO) April 2012


    Danny was very friendly and knowledgeable, although his apprentice seemed to do most of the work, Danny kept an eye on him to make sure it was done right. He had very reasonable pricing for re-keying.
    Greg D (St Louis, MO) October 2011


    He was extrememly fabulous and helpful and did a wonderful job. He was very professional.
    Shannon M. (Arnold, MO) October 2011


    Growing up spending so much of my time in Italy, the uniqueness of the Nova Classico left quite an impression on me. To be able to have and enjoy them in my own home here in the states is a nostalgic indulgence I'm enjoying beyond words. Thank you Danny for coordinating this transaction.

    Joseph M (Chicago, IL) September 2011





    great job. hired on the spot and he did job right then at great price

    Ron B (Arnold, MO) July 2011







    I searched the internet and found your services. I received three phone calls within several days. A service call was scheduled. Two gentlemen arrived promptly, analyzed the problem and fixed it.
    James & Florenc M Saint Louis, MO July 2011

    The repairman was on time and did an excellent job of fixing a very stubborn door lock. He was persistent and cleaned up the work area afterwards. I would use this service again.

    Brenda F (Saint Peters, MO) June 2011


    Danny at Master Key Systems has succeeded in making the purchasing of our Meroni door locks, from Italy, an absolute breeze. Even though I live in Australia with a 16hr time difference and was ordering door knobs from Italy that weren't in stock, the whole process was faultless. Danny was prompt and efficient with all his emails and made sure we had covered every possible variable so that the product I received was exactly as required. I would have no hesitation in recommending Danny for your next purchase.
    Patrick Carr (Canberra, Australia)


    Your product really helped because I needed to secure a nurse's station adjacent to a waiting room and needed a pocket door. Unfortunately, no real options were available to lock a pocket door effectively that would keep me compliant with HIPAA and secure an area that stores medical supplies. This was vitally important as this particular waiting room was for "waiting detox patients". Thank you very much.
    Randall R The Fritz Clinic (Birmingham, Al) March 2011


    Danny was very polite and knew what the problem was and how to fix it. He also gave me some information about other issues that could arise with my door and locks. Will hire again if I ever need that type of work done.
    Jason M Imperial, MO March 2011




    I had an exterior basement door that dragged when opening and closing. The hinges were not fitting properly and the door frame had shifted, probably due to the age of the house.The screwswould not go far enough into the wall without hitting stone...even using a special drill bit. Dan worked a long time drilling and sanding to shore up the door as best as possible. I know it will never be perfect. He could have easily sold me a new door and the same issue would happen. He was honest, thorough, and did an excellent job without charging me a fortune. I'm satisfied with the door now. If you want an honest, experienced man, Then Dan is the man

    Roger M Saint Louis, MO March 2011


    I purchased the Cowdroy P697 Pocket door lock with key over the internet. I emailed questions before my purchase and was provided with the answers quickly by return email. The purchase was quick and easy and the lock was shipped immediatly. Installation is quick and easy. But you do need to convert millimeters to inches (use the internet) in the installation instructions. And the lock looks great and works great. I will do business with them again. THANK YOU
