There are many secrets that are hidden in every job profile and locksmith is not an exception. These secrets are never shared with anyone outside the occupation. Here are few such coveted trade secrets shared from the diary of a locksmith.
We work for cops
Cops don´t break the doors to enter a place every time. We make copies of keys for cops so that they can enter and set up the surveillance system and put bugs in suspected place.
Sometimes we have to correct improperly installed bolts
Most residents are unaware of the improperly installed bolts in their door locks. At time of rekeying locks, I have seen many wrong installations and people have paid for that too.
We have to see many dead bodies
Sometimes we have to become eyewitness to the mishap that took place behind the locked doors. Whenever any landlord calls us to open door when their tenant is missing from somedays, we just hope that we don´t have to witness another dead body.
Call one of us when you are locked out
It has been noticed that people call more than one locksmith whenever they are stuck in any emergency or locked out of their house or car. This only ends up in reverting back mobile unit by seeing their competitor´s truck over there and you end up without any solution. It is requested to call any one of us to gain proper service and have patience till we reach there.
We can also duplicate your car keys
Don´t ever think that only your car dealer can duplicate the keys of your cars and they are charging you the right amount. We also do the same work for you and charge you quite less than your car dealer. We have experts who know how to program your keys in an efficient manner.
Think twice before you buy a locked safe at a flea market or from the auction
People usually purchase things based on their outward appearances and most of the time end up with ridiculous things which are of no use. It is advised that when you are purchasing safes from auction or flea market, think twice and check them properly before buying.
Remember these while calling or hiring locksmith for availing their services.
