Do you know how to avoid lockouts? Look at these tips and learn more about home security and locks

Never leave your name and address on your keys

It may sound smart to have a tag with your name and address on the keys but our experts advise against this. You do not know who can get a hold of your keys and if it is in the wrong hands, it can mean a burglary waiting to happen.

Get your window locks fitted

We usually focus on keeping our door locks fitted well and secured to the point where we end up forgetting about our windows. Window locks should be fitted well, especially those that are easy to reach on the ground floor as these windows can be an easy way for burglars to enter your home.

Avoid getting robbed on Christmas

You are not the only one enjoying Christmas; burglars are enjoying the holiday, too. They search through garbage bins to see who got the most expensive television this year and will break-in the house. So, don't throw away gift boxes without wrapping them first in big plastic bags, lock all doors well, and have the locks replaced.

Make your older model car safer by getting keyless entry

Think keyless entry is technology reserved for new car models? Think again! You can significantly increase the security of your car by getting a professional locksmith to install the technology for you. Not only do keyless entry systems make it harder for an intruder to get into your car, it also makes it more difficult to start the car without the correct key.

Carry out annual lubrication

This is a very important aspect of door lock maintenance. Locksmiths will not suggest petroleum based products for the lubrication. Instead, you can use graphite lubricants as a safer alternative. Teflon and other dry lubricants are also a great option because they are easy to apply and come off quite quickly. Never spray more than a small amount of lubricant on the locks.
