His and Hers Key Holder

Another novel idea adds to the convenience of finding your keys easily.

The His and Hers Key Holders are made in a mirror chrome finish, include a lock and key and are so easy to use.

Simply attach the key to your keyring, when you get home insert the key into your lock. It will be there when you need to leave.

Another "Why didn't I think of that?" product.

Wonkey - Fixes that wobbly table

Now, here is a novel idea packaged in the shape of a key.

Wonkey is a product that just about anyone who has ever gone out for dinner to a restaurant, probably wished they had on their key ring.

Wonkey is designed to look like a key and fit appropriately on your keyring. It is made from silicone rubber for maximum grip and durability.

When you visit your favourite restaurant and get seated at the last table, often that table wobbles making your experience there less than pleasant. Food can spill, drinks spill, kids wobble the table just for fun...

Simply unclip the Wonkey from your keyring and chock the appropriate table leg. Problem solved.

But remember to take it with you when you leave.

Cowdroy P697 Pocket Door Lock With Key - Install Instructions

Our very popular Pocket Door Lock with Key, is being snapped up by many customers, thank you.

Perhaps the most common question I receive is, "Will it fit in place of the existing lock I have?"

My answer to this common question is, "definitely". This lock has been especially designed to replace the common pocket door privacy sets found all across the world.

Here is how the installation is performed, according to the manufacturers instructions. While I suggest that your carpenter or builder be asked to install it, it is a reasonably straightforward project for the home handyman to perform, presuming they have the correct tools. **NOTE** This product is designed for doors up to 42mm (1-11/16") thick.

Each lock comes with a plastic template to guide the installation. I suggest that a jigsaw be used to accurately cut the extra depth necessary for the correct installation.

Be sure to follow the instructions correctly and in about 1-2 hours your project will be complete.

Install the screws of choice.

Mark the mortise strike fixing and complete.

At only $125.00, there are few, if any competitively priced alternatives.

UFO by Meroni Serrature - Alternative Uses

The Meroni UFO deadlocking product, that we have raving on about recently, can be used in many other applications apart from vehicle security.

As these pictures show, the product excellently and efficiently secures, solid glass doors, wrought iron gates, front and rear entrance doors.

The product's use is only limited by your imagination.

Stylish lever entry sets can be combined with an auxiliary internal mechanism that allows use on different applications.

Combine it with a knob entrance set for top-class security.

Glass Doors, come with a kit tailored to install without necessarily perforating the glass.

The body of the UFO model, common to all applications, contains four mobile steel drill-proof spheres which foil any attempt at forcing. The company claims that the key locking cylinder is also drill-proof.

Beautiful, stylish security innovation from the home country of Leonardo Da Vinci.

UFO Meroni - The Most Secure Locking System For Your Work Truck

The Meroni UFO is one of, if not the strongest locking product I have seen to secure work trucks and vans.

We previously posted about the Meroni UFO in December 2009.

The above video shows just how secure the product is when put to the test. Yes, this is a deliberately staged demonstration, but it shows the lengths required for a determined burglar to go to, to defeat the product.

How important is the security of your tools or the products you house in your work vehicle?

We intend to stock these products in due course. If you are in the trade services business, your tools of trade are vital to your livelihood. So securing them properly is vital to maintaining your income.

Understanding that these two municipalities enjoy significantly different population sizes and per capita incomes, helps to explain some of the wider differences on the graph.

3D Door Lock

3D is all the rage today. The recent release of new innovative motion pictures utilising 3D imagery has changed the field in the movie making industry and consequently, is finding it's way to the television manufacturing industry.

Multiple leading technology companies are muscling for position in this new and lucrative market.

So, why not the lock and key industry too?

Open Me is a radical new futuristic design that is light years ahead of any present day lock and key system.

The designers of this system have come up with a way to secure the lock using a 3D scanner that looks for the geometric cut of the crystal embedded in a ring. The wearer simply holds the crystal ring in close proximity to the 3D scanner built into the locking cylinder and if the geometric cuts of the crystal are recognised by the scanner the lock unlocks.

Picking or bypassing this technology will take some thought.

Numlock -Concept Combination Entry

Numlock is a new concept design handle by a talented European designer Jaeseok Han.

The desire of the marketplace is progressively for better access control solutions and Jess's design improves upon the combination entrance set with a simple yet fully functional product that answers many requests for simple, functional security products that maximise aesthetic appeal while maintaing first rate security.

The Numlock handle looks the part with a simple design aimed at users with modern aesthetic desires.

It is only a concept, but one that might have some call in the wider market.

By replacing the standard cylinder that comes with the LSD-01, with a Bilock Extreme Security Cylinder and 2 keys, we can offer a totally bump proof and virtually pick proof lock with keys that cannot be duplicated for about $98.00 (depending on the color).

When you compare the different brands of deadbolts currently on the market, most will vary in price due to the ANSI grade, the brand name and the quality of construction.

Many front or back doors on homes across America, already use Kwikset or Schlage Grade 3 deadbolts as the common product. The average price for these brand name products are between $35 and $70.

This will enable you to secure your doors with the finest lock system available and combine it with the best door frame strengthener on the market.

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
