Armored Nut Shells - Personal Protection Armor For Professional Athletes And Military/Police Personnel

Military and Law Enforcement providers as well as professional athletes, especially UFC (Ultimate Fight Club) participants, are raving about this exceptionally designed and produced Missouri made product.

Armorednutshellz.com is the brainchild of talented engineer and former marine, Jeremiah Raber.

Exposure to car racing engineers, enabled Raber to discover the benefits of the well known bullet resistant product called Kevlar.

Not being altogether thrilled with just another Kevlar product, Raber spent countless hours researching and testing other fabrics and fibers, before settling on a superb combination including Kevlar and Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE).

The product he designed has proven to be one of the finest armored protection devices available today. Sportspeople, including soccer players, cricketers, hockey players, baseball players, even professional American footballers and participants in MMA (mixed martial arts) are seeing the benefits of this expertly designed and produced armored protection product that protects the groin region from damage.

Raber produces the product himself in a especially designed workshop using the finest materials.

Personal and physical security products are what this site aims to bring attention to. This is an example of a personal security product that not only can save your balls, but potentially save your life too and hence deserves placement in this blog.

Smartspray DNA Helps Law Enforcement To Pinpoint Perps - Now In The USA

In July last year, we wrote an article about Chain Reaction DNA, a product that has been adopted by security personell in the USA under the guise of Smartspray DNA that enables the spray solution to "infect" a would be assailant or criminal and mark them with an invisible solution that shows up under ultra violet light.

It is being used in some parts of the USA right now and the video (after the jump) shows a recent news article about how effective it is becoming.

The product is applied via a spay canister located in a vehicle, purposely set up by Florida police to catch a thief, who was targeting vehicles in their district.

Skydas - Unparalleled Burglary Resistant Entrances

Skydas are a Lithuanian company that specialize in super strong virtually impregnable entry systems.

In the video (after the jump) below, they show attempts to bust open a door and just how strong this product is.

Price Rise Season Is Again Upon Us

Some of our product manufacturers are increasing their prices at this time as we see Lockwood increase their cost price by 10%.

This means that our wildly popular Lockwood 7444 Keyed Pocket Door Lock is likely to increase next month.

We are trying to absorb this rise thanks to a stronger $US and will let you know if situations require us to increase the cost. We apologize for any inconvenience.

(you will notice if you do a search online, across multiple search engines that the price advertized for the same product is around $AU45.00 + shipping. That price does not include international shipping and customs duties. We endeavor to get the best possible price from our international freight forwarders, hence why it looks like it is 3 times the cost in North America)

Couchvault - A Gun Safe With A Difference

The patent pending Couchbunker system manufactured by a leading Texan based manufacturer Heracles Manufacturing Corporation is a sensational and aesthetically pleasing modern alternative to gun safes.

Essentially it is a high quality safe/vault built into a couch/sofa base.

The difference between a regular gun safe and this sensational new product is the expertly designed and protected seat cushions that are especially designed to be used as personal shielding, in the event of nefarious attack.

The safe is expertly packed into a couch, the size of half a queen sized bed. It is 78" long, x 29.5" wide x 14" deep. It is lined with a 2 hour firewall protecting the contents from fire. The use of 2 high security key operated locks that are keyed alike offer significant pick resistance and key duplication resistant key control.

The perfect addition to the hunting lodge or school or office environment, this appealing sofa/couch is expressly designed to offer aesthetic pleasing decor combined with a state of the art gun safe that can house up to 30 rifles and other valuables requiring protection.

Visit the company website in the source below, for pricing details and ordering and watch the embedded video of the cushions resisting a .44 magnum gun attack at close range.

Invisible Door Stop - Simple, Effective And Made In America

The Invisible Door Stop is a sensational idea that I'm really surprised has taken this long to come about. Invented by a forward thinking gentleman, Jeffrey Karcher, it is a patent pending product that will definitely improve the door, hardware and home improvement industries.

It is essentially a product that installs to your existing hinge. It is purposely designed to limit the opening of your door. It is made from a strong polymer that is tested to withstand heat and strength tests. When your door is closed the product is invisible.

No more door stops fitted to the skirting board or connected to the base of the door. No more hinge stoppers marking the door or frame.

View the video after the jump for installation instructions.

Kwikset Smartkey - More Problems

Kwikset Smartkey Problems is one of the leading search engine keywords that brings people to this site.

Many people get to this page and leave a comment or read other pages within.

Mark Tobias and his team of researchers just released an updated story (see Source below) about a new hack that renders the security of almost any Kwikset, Baldwin or Weiser lock system, that essentially use the Smartkey platform, easily defeated with virtually no damage.

I am not sure how long the video will be active, but if you are a Kwikset Smartkey owner or are contemplating buying one, you really need to be made aware of this products shortcomings.

Schlage Primus and Similar High Security Key Profiles Beaten By 3D Printing

Schlage, one of this countries most well known hardware and lock manufacturers and creator of the High Security Primus key systems must be reeling from news released yesterday that a team of MIT researchers have written a simple program to decipher a Primus (and similar types) key from a photograph and send the information to a 3D printer to enable duplication of these once-thought of restricted key systems. (see the source below)

The Schlage Primus key system, once thought by locksmiths across the country to be non-duplicatable, and also identified a couple of years ago as NOT Bump Resistant, faces one of the biggest threats to it's platform with the public release of this breaking news story.

In many states across the country, Schlage convinced locksmith companies to take on their own outright keyways and dealer codes, to corner their own market preventing duplication of keys by hardware stores, cookie key cutters, shoe repairers and gas stations. Little did we know that Schlage were simply sharing key profiles across state, sometimes county lines and in some cicumstances sharing side pin codes (dealer codes) across state lines. The whole agreement appeared very shady, indeed.

3D printing technology has grown from it's infancy and is now being seen and used by small to medium sized manufacturing businesses.

UPS are rolling out a trial 3D printer in some stores in San Diego, hoping to cash in on the opportunity for customers to 3D print a sample or spare part of their choice.

With access to many print stores across the country, the potential loss to current Schlage Primus dealers could be huge. It means that virtually any Primus key holder could get a copy made for less than $5 at their local print store. Dont think for a minute, that the large players in stationery and printing like Staples, Office Depot and the like, with super large budgets wont get in on the action of on demand 3D printing. Hardware big box stores like Lowes and Home Depot will jump in too and offer 3D printing in their one-stop franchises.

Other brands that use a similar system to Primus, include Medeco, Scorpion, Twin and some other brands.

This realization that your key system is not actually secure as you expected will mean that you will need to find systems that do as intended. Our Bilock Extreme Security Key Systems are carefully designed to prevent unauthorised duplication and with the introduction of the 13th element, a trigger mechanism that is interactive, 3D printing of a useable key is just not possible (at this time).

Bilock is well known worldwide for being a premium quality high-security restricted key system that outperforms virtually all other systems. It's unique keyway and pinning system, combined with state of the art side-bar technology and interchangeable core functionality and color coded key heads, makes it a formidable partner in the security of your home and business.

We are the largest provider of Bilock Systems in the Mid-West, using state of the art master key software to create, design and build our own systems. We have nearly 25 years international experience in the product line and have installed many of the most complex systems to universities, hospitals, private schools, casino's and hotels across the world.

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
