Cheaper to Rekey or Replace Locks

Whether you just moved into a new home or have been in the same house for a while, it might be a good time for you to look into changing your locks.

Every day I get asked should I rekey my locks or replace them? Re-keying your locks, if you have good locks, it’s pretty inexpensive. We just re-key the lock so the old key doesn’t fit it. So we take the lock off, re-key it, put it in, give you brand new keys. The old key will go in the lock but it won’t turn the lock. That’s re-keying. So re-keying is usually less expensive. So most locks can be re-keyed. Residential, business, commercial, everything. Most locks can be re-keyed. Residential and commercial locks The deadbolts and the key in knobs. We can re-key them. We can change the combination inside and give you new keys. If you have a good lock and it’s less expensive than replacing them. However, if you have some old, crappy locks or inexpensive or you want to increase the security of your locks, then we will replace the lock and sell you a new one and install it.

Rekey Locks

Re-keying is simple. It’s very fast. It doesn’t take long for us to do it. And we can re-key regular locks, high-security locks, some padlocks can be re-keyed but most can’t, they’re sealed units. Re-keying your locks is pretty inexpensive compared to replacing them. Also, it doesn’t take a lot of time, 15 minutes we can re-key a basic lock. Sometimes they take a little bit longer, sometimes quicker. Just depends upon the lock and how old it is and what style of lock it is. Some of the high security locks can take quite a while to re-key. But again, it’s less expensive. You don’t have to change your locks. You don’t have to install brand new ones. We can just re-key your existing locks.

How to Open a Frozen Lock | Mr. Locksmith™ Vancouver West

How to Open a Frozen Lock | Mr. Locksmith Vancouver West

https://www.mrlocksmithvancouverwest.com/

Mr. Locksmith Vancouver West: (604) 760-7620

How to Open a Frozen Lock Vancouver West: The most common cause of the locks being frozen if people have washed their car so that the whole door’s frozen.

The Polar Vortex is causing below freezing temperatures and winter storms across Canada and the US. Winter storms can bring cold temperatures, power failures and frozen locks.

The easiest, quickest way is you get some windshield lock de-icer or this is windshield and window de-icer. You can make your own. Basically, it is isopropyl alcohol aka rubbing alcohol. Just spray the whole sides of the car door. Spray the lock. Spray the sides. Spray all over. It is not going to hurt the car. Stinky, yes. Be careful it is extremely flammable. Just let it seep into the door cracks, handle and lock. You can change the bottle to it to a stream but get it right in there. Get it on everything, and then you can get the door open. You can make your own lock de-icer, as well as your windshield de-icer. For your lock de-icer just use this rubbing alcohol. This one is 91% isopropyl alcohol. This is great just for raw, lock de-icer. If you want to make some windshield de-icer, it works fantastic. Use two-thirds of the high-quality rubbing alcohol with one-third water. If you’re at home get your hairdryer. Plug it in. There are some 12-volt hair dryers. At home just plug it into an extension cord. Get the hairdryer going. You’re going to blow hot air all down the sides. This is another handy method. If you don’t have the lock de-icer, the windshield de-icer, get a hairdryer. Put an extension cord on it. Just sit there and just heat up the whole door, all the edges, all everything, as well as the lock. This works pretty well. Takes some time, but it works great. So I hope this has been of help to unfreeze your frozen car door or frozen lock you are locked out.

Frozen Do0r Locks? Call Mr. Locksmith Automotive

Frozen Hockey Puck Lock

Hockey Pucks locks are great for protecting your service truck or locksmith vehicle from Break and Enter attempts. However, in the winter the Hockey Pucks locks on your Locksmith Van or service truck ice up and the locks become frozen while driving in the snow or slush. Prevention is the number one so use WD-40 and spray the heck out of it. WD-40 is a penetrating oil, but it is also water displacement fluid. If your Hockey Puck lock t is iced up give it a few hits first with a rubber hammer then take your lock deicer. Eighty percent or more isopropyl alcohol is the best. Take the lock deicer, get it right in the keyhole, spread it all over it, and that should work where our key will now be able to go in and open it up. Prevention’s the best bet. Give the lock and keyway lots of WD-40, and it works really well to prevent the lock from freezing. On my own Mr. Locksmith service truck I don’t mind using a butane lighter blowtorch. Just give the blowtorch a little twist, push and click and you get a nice hot flame. Just heat the hockey puck lock right up. Again, I wouldn’t do this on a customer’s. This is my own locksmith service truck. This will get the all unfrozen. And be careful, the lock can get really, really hot. The other way is to get a lighter, match, etc. to heat the lock or keyway. I have this little propane torch. Just heat your key up it doesn’t take long. Heat it up, and then you can start putting it into the lock. Another method to unfreeze the lock if you have nothing just heat the key with your hand, hold it in your hand, get it all heated up. It takes a long time, but if you have nothing, just use your hand. So again, if you have absolutely nothing, heat it with your hand. Just hold it in your hand, heat it up.

How To Cut A Kwikset Key Triton Key Machine | Mr. Locksmith Vancouver West

How To Cut A Kwikset Key Triton Key Machine | Mr. Locksmith Vancouver West

Mr. Locksmith Vancouver West: (604) 760-7620

How To Cut A Kwikset Key Triton Key Machine: The Triton by Lock Labs is an all-in-one key cutting machine with the ability to generate & duplicate keys. Triton states they can cut 99% of all commercially available car and motorcycle keys, including single and double-edge, high security, tibbe (6 and 8-cut) and tubular. Custom search functions include the ability to search by vehicle model, keyway or IC card number. In this video, we cut a Kwikset Key (ilco KW1 Key Blank). Triton also contains a comprehensive database of commercial & residential keys and can even generate dimple cut keys.

The Triton code machine is a high-security code machine. So I’ve been using this machine for a couple of weeks now, so far happy with it. First of all, this only, the screen only comes up so far and I can see people yanking at this, I just leave it down, unless I am videoing. The interesting thing is whether this is up or down, it will still cut. So, which is great for me because I don’t have to jerry-rig anything to video. So, but it is a safety feature, this will still cut with this open. Which I don’t have a problem with, but we have to think of the stupid people out there. And can it cut a Kwikset key? Here’s a Kwikset series. I can check my KW1 blank, my key blanks right here listed under key blanks, ESP KW1, go through all my numbers all the different manufacturers, we have ilco there. It’s got all the main ones. The menu displays which jaw I got it on. It says this one should be on a B. Says it has to be cut on a B. Let’s put the key in and that’s a shoulder, check. So I have t it set up to B and I put my input. So I going to cut this. Let’s just cut it as a two, one, three, four, two and it takes it. Then I go okay, I press cut and we will go look at the screen. Now here are my options. So there’s laser-cut, which I don’t like. I like the look of the traditional key. Make sure it is on that. It’s all set up properly and press cut. Okay, now we have a Kwikset key.

Now, one thing when you are cutting the keys the machine needs a metal key brass, metal, etc. I guess because when it is setting up it must put a little bit of a charge. Do not use composite keys, no plastic keys. You will probably  risk damaging the machine and I can see that, cause I think it must have some little sensor in there a little bit of electricity or something like it as it is going on there The instructions state “do not use composite keys.” No plastic keys, 3D printed key blanks, etc.  I do not know the exact reason but I imagine it is because it must put out a small electrical charge. I guess aluminum keys would be okay because aluminum is a  conductor of electricity Brass Key blanks of course and the metal keys and all our other different alloys but nothing that are plastic or composite key blanks. I hope you enjoyed watching this video.

Amazon’s Ring video doorbells catch fire! Can’t Fix Stupid | Vancouver West

Amazon’s Ring video doorbells catch fire! Can’t Fix Stupid | Vancouver West

Ring Video Doorbell Fire, Ring and Nest are the two major video doorbell products. Ring Video Doorbell has sold approximately 8,700 units in Canada.

For further information go to https://mrlocksmithvancouverwest.com/

I have tried them both and they do what they say they are going to do. But what’s interesting, this is the Ring notice on it. But there’s been this doorbell 2nd generation tool has been linked to numerous fires throughout the US and Canada. I don’t know about Canada so much, but I know in the U S. Now Ring has not done a recall on this. They have sent out a notice, and we’ll put the link here on the video saying what the problem is. And it’s an interesting problem. So again, this is not really Ring’s problem. What is happening, and I’ll pull this apart here, is people are, it has a little battery pack and you can chargeable batteries or replace them or whatever. But there’s a machine screw that covers the battery pack. Well, what people who have been purchasing this have been doing, instead of the machine screw, they’re taking the longer wood screw screwing it into the housing, and it goes into the batteries and that’s what’s causing the short or the heating and is causing the fires. They have not done a product recall (update Ring has just announced a recall), and I can understand. You can’t fix stupid. The people are going to you know if you have a machine screw and they throw a wood screw in there is that really their fault that customers are stupid. However, we call it regression towards the mean somebody you’ve got to design stuff so stupid people can’t hurt themselves. So I grabbed this Ring video doorbell that is has a battery pack. And this is generation two which they say is the problem.

Let’s see what we got. Never unboxed this one, this is brand new. So there is the Ring. For simple, easy to do, this one is not expensive. I think they’re blowing them out the door cheap right now. It’s not an expensive doorbell. It’s like 100, $150, but it’s, again, it’s not a recall. They’re just saying, and I always loved they come with a nice little kit here, a little, you know it’s got everything in here to install it quite easily. And this is the one for people who don’t have. You have the battery pack because you don’t have the doorbell wires leading to your doorbell. So this is really good with the battery pack for people who don’t have the wired system to the front door. Here is the little machine screws. So there’s one little tiny machine screw, these three other screws.

Ring-Video-Door-Bell-Fire-Screws

Ring Video Door Bell Screws

Ring-Video-Doorbell-Fire

Ring Video Doorbell can catch fire if wooden screws are used instead of machine screws

Ring Video Doorbell Fire

It’s well packaged, Well, you know, well-designed like under $150, I think they’re on sale even less. Let’s warn everybody we have a video. The secret to these things really is they want you on the monthly plan. You can’t blame them for that. They wanna make money. This is a good little kit. Oh, even a little level. Oh my goodness, they got a little bit of everything in here. When you install this, with the wired system or the unwired, there are two areas they can make a mistake on. What’s happening is there, people are taking the woodscrew and there’s when they put this on the door, instead of, this is how you slow people down from stealing it. You put in the little screws on the bottom. So there are two little machine screws, go on the bottom. If you put in the two screws, it slows them down. They have to have a Torx, a small Torx. There are two little Torx screws that go in the bottom. Now what’s happening is people are either losing these because when you try, you’re trying to install this upside down and backward, you know, upside down on your door and you’re gonna lose these little screws. Yeah, it’s just a fact of life. You gotta drop them. People are dropping them, losing them. And whether they’re doing is taking the longer screw putting it into the bottom. And they’re tightening that screw all the way into the battery pack. So it’s not really Ring’s fault. So that’s why it’s, there’s a warning out to the public from Ring on this problem. And this is basically, is just basically people who don’t know the difference between a machine screw and a wood screw and people being stupid and forcing this thing. You really got to crank this to go in there and destroy that lock or destroy the battery pack. It’s a good product. I like their products, they’re good. It’s not a, it’s not a Ring problem.

I hope you enjoyed watching this Ring Video Doorbell Fire video. Subscribe to my channel, also visit my website and you can see what online locksmith training I have for beginners, intermediate and advanced, as well as my covert methods of entry and my non-destructive methods of entry.

Ring recalls 350,000 smart doorbells after some of them caught fire

If you have a sticky lock, whether it’s on your house, your business, a padlock, or your car door, a car ignition is different, if you have a sticky lock, there is a couple of solutions you can do.

Never, never put oil, or linseed oil, or motor oil, or sewing machine oil, or even graphite. Graphite, do not put that into your lock. Now, WD-40 is penetrating oil. It’s fantastic for getting a sticky lock unstuck but is not a lubricant.

My favorite for a lock is Tri-Flow, just love this stuff. Put a little spray, it does not take a lot, just put a little spray into your lock and it will be fantastic. Or now you know Lock Saver, there’s Houdini. I don’t have any Houdini handy, but this is my go-to is Tri-Flow. So again, WD-40 for sticky locks. It will unstick it, but it’s not gonna lubricate it. Tri-Flow will lubricate the lock perfectly.

Do not use graphite, graphite is bad for you. It’s not good for the locks. It’s an old way of lubricating locks, don’t do it. So go to Tri-Flow. If the lubricant does not work, it could because your key is old and worn, especially on cars we find that a lot. So cutting you a brand new key to factory code, the lock usually works perfectly after that. So it could be a worn key. Your lock could be worn and the lubricant may be a temporary fix, but it is not going to fix the problem. You have an old lock on your door or the padlock’s old, it’s worn out, you need a new lock. And sometimes, especially with the Honda ignitions, the high security, sometimes the ignition needs to be, the parts, replaced, and you would need a new key because those things just seem to wear out.

The other issue could be that the door is sticking. So it could be the hinges are dropping, or what really happens, with the change of weather, is the latch, or the deadbolt specifically, is not lined up anymore with the hole. So I have a few more videos on how to fix that. But the way to see if it is the problem is the door frame is open the door and does the key work the lock perfectly? So if the door is open and you can turn the lock perfectly and then when you close the door and it does not lock, then the problem is with your door frame. However, if you open the door, try the key, and it’s still jammed, then the problem is your door.

Locked Out because of a Sticky Lock?

In conclusion, do not use WD-40, oil, linseed oil and do not use sewing machine oil. WD-40 is, a penetrating oil, it’s good but it is not going to lubricate your lock. Use a Lubricant that is meant for locks, Tri-Flow is my favorite. Lock Saver and Houdini are good.

If you have any recommendations, put it at the bottom. So this will help you with sticky locks.
