Why Should You Install New Locks? 

New lock installation1. You want to make a security upgrade. If you want to increase protection on your property and lower the risk of theft and break-in, install a new set of locks. 
2. Repairing old locks would cost too much. If your locks are severely damaged and fixing them would cost almost as much as buying new locks, consider a lock change service instead. 
3. The old locks are obsolete. If your current locks can no longer keep up with the current security threats of the modern world, it is time for an upgrade. 
4. A physically impaired household member cannot use the current locks. We specialize in installing locks for people with disabilities to simplify access and lock manipulation.
5. Someone may have made copies of your home/office keys. Former roommates, life partners, tenants, or employees who might try to seek revenge by entering the premises without your consent can be stopped by changing the locks. Install new locks with us to regain your sense of security.
6. You want to install new doors. A big home renovation project that involves door replacement should also include new lock installation. The locks should match the design of the new doors while adding more functionality and security to the property.

When Should You Install New Locks?

Your Security Has Been Compromised

In case you suspect someone might have stolen or found one of your spare keys and you want to avoid a potential break-in, change the locks. Do the same if your home, car, or business space has been recently broken into to prevent a second burglary from happening.

Your Old Locks Are No Longer Functional

If you have started noticing signs of severe wear-out and damage when using your locks, you are most likely dealing with a loss in functionality. This is a serious problem that needs an immediate lock change solution. 

You Cannot Find Your Keys 

While lock re-keying is also a good alternative here, installing a new set of locks should also help you upgrade the security on your property. Be proactive and enjoy even more peace of mind with new locks.

You Are Locked Out Often

If your current automatic lock system is causing numerous lockout incidents throughout the year, it is time to get in touch with our lock installation service near me. We can install a standard key that requires a key to lock the door. 

You Recently Moved Into a New Home 

If you have recently bought a new property, be sure that the old owners, construction workers, or babysitters cannot use any misplaced spare key to access your home.

You Are Going Through a Separation

Conflictual separations or divorces may convince you that you need new locks on your home to feel better protected. Just make sure you have a special judge order or official permission from your partner in case of a house that is owned jointly with them.

Health Issues Require Touch Free Locks

With the onset of Covid 19 the world suddenly became aware of having the need for hands-free security systems.  These new technologies not only prevent the spread of disease, the eliminate the chances of code stealing by nearby strangers.

What Types of Locks Do We Work With?

While our experts cover all types of locks in the industry, these are some of the most common locks we are asked to service:

Mortise Deadbolt Locks

Similar to deadbolts, these models offer enhanced protection as they require a key to be used on both sides of a door. They rely on sturdier mechanisms embedded in the door frame and the door itself. This also makes them more efficient in the long run compared to regular deadbolts. Some of the best mortise deadbolts we work with are:

  • Yale
  • Prime-Line
  • Belwith 
  • Marks
  • Global

Deadbolt Locks

Most US homes are protected against potential burglaries with the help of deadbolt locks. These models add additional security to any property compared to doorknob-embedded locks. These locks bolt the door into a wall, with the bold being activated with a key or the turn of a thumb. Since they do not feature any springs, they are safer than other lock models. They are excellent options for wooden, steel, and fiberglass doors. Opt for double- or single-cylinder deadbolts, depending on your custom needs. Locksmiths Locator works with the following deadbolt brands:

  • Kwikset
  • Master Lock
  • Gatehouse 
  • Yale
  • Schlage
  • Mult-T-Lock
  • Medeco
  • Baldwin

New Lock Installation Services for Residential, Commercial, and Automotive Needs

Automotive Lock Change Services

We are trained and ready to install new locks on any car model and brand. We cover sports cars, jeeps, RVs, motorboats, motorcycles, and anything in between. We can manually install a new lock cylinder, an automatic lock that relies on key fobs, or an electronic lock with keys in just a few minutes.

Lock Replacement Service for Home and Office Spaces

Allow us to assess your security needs and recommend the best locks that would fit your budget limitations, door aesthetics, functionality, easy access, and convenience needs. Any new lock installation procedure is initiated with a thorough inspection of the space in which the new lock will be fitted. The second step is the removal of the doorknob and its disassembling. This requires a series of special tools and procedures that our experts have used thousands of times over the years. Finally, the new doorknob lock, deadbolt, or latch bolt lock is screwed into the dedicated space in the door of your home or business space.

Tips for Securing Your Residential Doors and Entry Points 

  • Install new locks on doors and windows. An upgraded set of locks is your best bet against home burglary attempts. Install small-keyed locks on your windows and consider adding bars for more protection. Fit standard, Grade-1 locks or smart locks on your exterior doors. 
  • Cover the bolts and use chain locks. A slipcover can easily expand the lifespan of the jam while protecting the bolts. Chain locks add more peace of mind knowing our front door is well protected.
  • Install a complete home security system. A home security system with surveillance cameras, locks on the mailbox, and video doorbells are also good ideas.
  • Fit a security screen on your front door. Enjoy an extra barrier with a fresh set of locks for more peace of mind. 
  • Use longer screws. Longer set screws embedded in the front door translate to enhanced security. As a general rule, opt for three-inch screws instead of the regular ¾-inch screws.
