Door alignment issues

These are the main reasons why latches and bolts fail. There are several causes: improperly drilled holes, incorrectly positioned strike and latch plates, sagging hinges, bowed doors, excessive gap between the door and frame, or just settling from age.

Latch replacements

Latches typically wear out before the rest of the lock, sometimes preventing the door from being opened. Kwikset latches seem to fail most often and this is typically due to design flaws and alignment issues. Standard entrance locks use latches with an additional dead-latch. This piece is meant to rest on the latch plate while the primary latch is extended inside the plate. When both latches go inside the plate, they can be manipulated to open the door, and they also bind against the back of the latch plate from the pressure of the door. This is what causes the latch to fail within a few years.
We stock replacement latches for Kwikset, Baldwin, Schlage, Yale, and Master Lock.

Bolt replacements (for deadbolts)

Bolts don’t fail very often, but alignment issues are the top reason they do. This is especially critical when they are operated by electronic components. Smooth action is required for the small motor to throw and release the 1” lock bolt. Too much binding can prevent the lock from fully engaging/disengaging, overclock the motor, wear batteries, and break the lock.

Replacement Locks:

  • Knobs (entrance, privacy, passage)
  • Levers (entrance, privacy, passage)
  • Deadbolts
  • Padlocks
  • Lock Cylinders

Mailbox locks

USPS can typically replace cluster box locks, but oftentimes the wait is in excess of two months. Stand-alone mailboxes are outside of the scope of USPS and often require specialized locks, or modifications to the locking cam to work properly.
Furthermore, many cluster boxes are susceptible to manipulation. This is not the fault of the lock, but rather the shape of the hole in the compartment door. Specialized locks can be used to prevent brute force attacks.

Rekeying

Rather than replacing a functional lock, the combination can be changed. This is a more cost-effective way to regaining access to the door and regaining key control. Typically, residential locks should be keyed alike. This allows you to use a single key to operate all the locks. Bedroom locks would be the common exception to this. But when you have dog sitters, caretakers, or Airbnb situations, you may consider keying the lower lock (knob, lever, or handle) to a different combination than the deadbolt. This gives you sole control over the deadbolt, which is the primary security of the door (if one is present).
The most common reasons you would rekey a lock would be for:

  • Lost or stolen keys
  • Staff turnover (caretaker, maid, nanny)
  • Evictions
  • Estates
  • Binding keys (worn keys and lock pins)
  • New property lease or purchases

Key Programming

Most vehicles produced since 2000 (and some from 1996) will have an immobilizer system that requires correctly coded, chipped keys, in addition to the physical combination of the key cuts. GM started this movement with the V.A.T.S. Keys in 1985 for the 1986 Model Year Corvette. These weren’t transponder keys, but they had a resister pellet in the blade of the key, and these systems required the correct resistance to start the car. The secure coding of keys has advanced significantly since then and nowadays, almost all vehicle require specialized programmers to make new operational vehicle keys. Give us a call if you’ve lost one key, all keys, or would like an additional key made. Depending on the vehicle, the programming procedure may vary, but we cover most vehicles.

Add Vehicle Key

This option allows you to add additional vehicle transponder keys or smart keys. You must currently have at least one key that will start and run the vehicle. So long as the security of vehicle has not been compromised, adding additional keys is typically simpler and quicker.

All Keys Lost

Many vehicles require two working keys to perform All Keys Lost. This process can take a little longer than just adding a second or third key.
If you’ve lost one or all of your vehicle keys, or if you’ve purchased a used vehicle and want to ensure that previously programmed keys will not operate your vehicle, this option would be ideal.
Any physical key that used to operate the doors, trunk, glove box, and physical aspect of the ignition will still work those areas, but the vehicle will not start with those keys.
