Minneapolis OUR NEW LOCK INSTALLATION SERVICES
Just remember: We are the one name you need to remember when it's time to overhaul your residential or business security.
Installing a quality solid door lock is the first step to keeping your home or office properly secured. Old locks are often the weakest point in any security setup, as they can be rusted, too many previous users may have had access to keys, or other issues. Making sure that your keys are yours and are up to date is the most important part of maintaining your security. Too many homeowners and businesses forget about security in their planning, putting all of their investments at risk. Perfect security is nearly an impossible goal, but through both planning smartly and making sure to properly assess risk, you can be at ease, without having to worry about leaving your home or business alone when you choose to spend time apart from it. But everything begins with the obvious. Are your door locks secure, or is it time to replace them?
WHEN IT'S TIME TO CHANGE YOUR LOCKS
Whether you are a home or business owner, unless you built your property from the ground up, chances are high that there was a previous owner. Most people simply hand over the keys to the next tenant or owner, and the keys never get changed. In such a case, there is a strong possibility that the keys were copied. There's a possibility that in fact there could be dozens, if not hundreds of keys milling about that could open the doors to your home or business. It's very possible no one actually knows how many copies of a set of keys there are. And that's only one of the many situations where one should consider installing a new set of locks for their home or business. Others examples include:
- Your keys are lost or stolen
- After a break-in that damages your lock
- When your previous employee 'forgets' to return the office keys
- When you have to relocate to a new office
- A roommate moved out but retained possession of the keys
- When you need to upgrade your security system
- As part of your home or office renovations
- When your locks are simply old, outdated or damaged
- Divorce, death, or a new tenant
- Moving to a new home
- If your vehicle was broken into and a copy of the keys were taken
We are here for you when it is time for you to upgrade your security with a wide range of security options for your home or your business (even your vehicle!)
LOCK REPLACEMENT SERVICES
We Specialize in Both Residential and Business Lock Installations
When you call us, we send over a specialist to perform an initial security assessment by request. We use a multi-point system to determine potential security weaknesses and where your security itself needs upgrading. We have a full line of security solutions for every home or business, from the most basic and affordable to the highest-level security options available. The reason for this is because we believe quality home security is everyone's right. Not everyone needs a fingerprint scanner; for the average household a decent security system and deadbolts will fill all their security needs.
While many people will see security as simply heading down to the hardware store and buying a deadbolt on sale, this is never a good idea. In the first place, you have to know how to install a lock properly. In the second, you have to know which lock will fit which door. And if you don't install the lock properly it may not function as it's supposed to, thus providing diminished protection for the place it was installed. Because we have the experience and the know-how, our professional locksmiths can make sure your home or business is secure instead of hastily cobbled 'do it yourself' solutions.
We Do Car Lock Installations
Our services aren't just limited to homes and businesses-- we also install car door and trunk locks through our car lock replacement service. Our expert locksmiths are ready and equipped with all the tools necessary, 24 hours a day when your security needs it most when a vehicle needs rekeying or new locks. No matter what model or year your car or what security system you need for your vehicle, we specialize in all forms of vehicle security and can get the job done where you are.
STANDARD LOCK SYSTEMS WE SERVICE
Industry Standard: The Deadbolt
Everyone knows the good old fashioned deadbolt. The standard for homes and businesses for over 100 years, the deadbolt works attached to both the door and the wall. On one side, a knob releases the lock; on the other, a key can be used to take the place of the knob. While newer technologies may offer more security, for most homes and many businesses, the traditional deadbolt lock is more than enough to ward off any potential wrongdoers. we service and install a wide variety of deadbolt locks, especially the following:

Mortise Deadlock: One Lock, Two Keys For Added Security
While similar to deadbolt locks, Mortise Deadlocks add an additional layer of security by providing security on both sides of the door. If someone manages to pry a door open enough or get their hand around the knob of a deadbolt lock, they can get through. By contrast, a Mortise Deadlock system requires a key on both sides of the door, meaning that one cannot open the door on either side without a key. Because of their design they also usually use stronger mechanisms in the door and the frame, meaning that they usually also last longer than the standard deadbolt mechanism. We use the top brands for Mortise Deadlock systems in the industry, such as:
Modern Lock Systems: High-Tech Security Solutions
When it's time to get to the next level in residential or business security, it's time to go electronic. Nothing in the world even comes close. You want the best security in the digital age and that means you want to consider some of the systems below, because sometimes a simple deadbolt and basic security system just won't cut it anymore.
Keycard Systems: a keycard system is based around electronic and magnetic locks that can be accessed through the tap of a card, as opposed to the use of a physical key. Besudes being very programmable (meaning room to room security) they are trackable (meaning you know where everyone in the building is) and reprogrammable (so ex-employees can't steal key cards and try to get back in.)
Keypad Systems: keypad systems are relatively similar to keycards in that they are programmable on multiple levels, but use codes to open doors that are entered on pinpads instead of a key card system. Keypad systems are popular in conjunction with keycard systems because even if a potential troublemaker has one, he will probably have trouble gaining both.
Fingerprint and Retina Scans
Fingerprint and Retina Scan Systems: The ultimate in total security, these systems are designed to ensure that no one gets in without authenticating their very existence. These are high-enough security devices to be used with high-level government and private-sector offices.
Mobile Phone App Compatible Systems
Virtually all of today's modern lock systems can be made compatible with phone apps that will alert owners where someone is on your property. With real-time alerting, you have the comfort of knowing when and where everyone in the building is at all times. These locks are capable of working through Wi-Fi and wired systems, and not only will they notify you when you aren't home of attempts to break-in, but the police can also remotely be notified. (After that, make use of our emergency locksmith service.)
The best part about electronic security systems is that technology prices continue to bring down the price of newer device locks to where they are even competitive with standard lock systems!
