Effective Solutions from Top Specialists
What is the risk of a key snapping inside the lock?
The risk isn’t high at all, assuming the key is in good condition and you use it properly. It pays off to check the blade for bending regularly. Just place it next to a perfectly straight edge. Even if the key is slightly bent, it should be fixed or replaced as soon as possible. Make sure that you operate locks properly too. Insert and turn the key gently and slowly.
What are the new technology locks?
Although some new technology locks still work with conventional keys, most of them exclude the use of keys altogether. You will need card readers, codes, fobs or fingertips in order to open the door. They are electric, digital and biometrics. They are advanced technologically speaking and can discourage burglars. Our professionals can inform you further.
