We are fully aware that choosing a new door handle isn’t an easy task. That is because today there are many options for door handles and doorknobs. There are simple ones and there also high-security handles with fingerprint scanners. Therefore, we at Locksmith Melbourne put together a shortlist of things you should consider before you choose your handle.

door handle

The style of the door handle

Many people think that one of the most important things about a door handle is its appearance. That is because when a person enters a house, the first thing he sees is how the door looks (among the lock and handle).

Although it is important, one more thing you need to check is the security of the handle. For example, you need to check if it’s made from a strong material in order to prevent a break-into your property.

The type of handle

We highly suggest you check all types of door handles and then choose the best one for you. It could be a simple door handle, a doorknob, or a high-security one. We at Locksmith Melbourne can come and install all kinds of door handles on the spot!.

The location - front door or interior door

One more important thing you need to do is to match your handle based on where the door is located in the house. We highly suggest installing a stronger handle or a high-security door handle in the front door of your house. By that, you are lowering the chances of a break-in to your property. Further, it is also very important to install a strong handle on the garage door for the same reason. On the other hand, if it’s an interior door, you can install a simple one.

The finish and ensuring continuity

Another thing you need to check is the durability of the material that the handle is made from. This step is very important because that way you are making sure that the handle will last a long time and will not rust or break. 

The warranty

The last thing you need to check before you choose a specific handle is if the locksmith company you buy it from offers a guarantee on all the parts. That way, you guarantee that someone will come and fix or replace your handle in case it doesn’t work well.

To sum up, 

Please feel free to call us whenever you need a locksmith service.

We provide all of our services 24 hours a day. We can come to fix or replace your lock on the spot!

Just give us a call and we will send you a technician ASAP.

Please remember to read all those tips before rushing to choose a handle.

What is Lock Snapping and How to Prevent it?

Today, many people are having to face a break-in to their property. A break-in can happen for many reasons. It can occur when you leave the house for a few hours or if you go on a vacation for sometime. As you know, a broken lock is something that needs to be fixed right away. That is because leaving your lock damaged or broken means your house isn’t safe.

Therefore, we at Locksmith Melbourne are here to help you 24 hours a day! Our technicians have many experiences so they help you fix or replace all types of locks. Moreover, many people don’t know what the meaning of lock snapping is, how to recover from it, and how to prevent it next time. Therefore, we are here to explain what it is and how you can avoid it.

A Short Introduction to a Lock Snapping

First of all, “Cylinder snapping”  is a very common method used by burglars to break into a property that has a euro cylinder lock. Second, it may come as a surprise, but lock snapping doesn’t require a specific skill. Meaning, most thieves that break into a property are simply breaking the lock with no special method.

How does Lock Snapping work?

The method of breaking the lock or snapping it involves breaking the cylinder to then manipulate the lock to open.

How Long does it take for the burglar to break a lock?

It can take just 5-10 seconds for a thief to snap the lock.

Also, the most important thing you need to remember is that lock snapping requires no specialist tools or knowledge. Therefore, it is very important to secure your house in the best way you can. Meaning, the best way to prevent it is by installing a high-security lock that the burglar can’t break.

How to Prevent it from happaning?

As we mentioned before, the best way to prevent lock snapping is by installing the most secure locks (For example, a smart lock with a pin code or a fingerprint).

Moreover, an anti-snap lock can also prevent burglary. This kind of lock is a euro cylinder lock that is tested and approved to SS312 diamond standard.

How a lock will protect against lock snapping:

  • The lock must be tested against lock snapping
    – SS312 Diamond-approved lock cylinders have been tested to resist this particular type of attack.
    – Changing your euro profile cylinders will protect your door, providing you with an anti-snap lock on your door.
  • Fit the lock correctly – a locksmith will also make sure the lock is fitted correctly, not fitting correctly will lead it prone to snapping.
  • There are different sizes of euro locks – Cylinders are available in various sizes, so fitting the correct size is vital.

How to recover from it?

The first thing you should do after realizing someone broke into your property is to call the police. Once the police work is done, you need to call a professional locksmith service to replace your locks right away. We highly suggest you consider installing a smart lock and even install a security system.

That way you can make sure all your family and belonging are protected.

Locksmith Melbourne Tips on Business Security:

Security System And Cameras

The first thing we would like to recommend is installing a professional security system. A good and reliable security system provided by a major company, can be the most important action. We understand that in some cases, you don’t want to invest this amount of money for something you won’t get a return from, but it’s a much needed outcome.

A security system has a variety of benefits. Such as: monitoring your business 24/7 using a security camera, act as a deterrent measure against burglars and thieves, calling the authorities quickly in a case of need, and much more!

In our opinion, a security system should be installed at all commercial building and businesses. 

Hiring Highly Trained Security Personal

Imagine not having to double check every person entering your business, or not suspect every random backpack that you found lying on the floor. By using a well-trained and professional security personal, you can leave all the worrying about security to someone who is train to do so.

The staff can also provide patrolling at the perimeter, check every person that enters the Business, and preform security checks and more! A professional security will understand your specific needs and we’ll do everything to fulfil them.

Using Commercial Grade Locks

The first security measure you purchase is locks. Whether if it’s a traditional lock, or a smart lock – it’s the first thing you’ll buy. Unfortunately, most people thinks that a residential lock (like the one they have at home), is strong enough for their business.

A residential lock is simply not strong enough to assure full coverage and security of your property. However, a commercial grade lock is designed to handle heavy duty use at high traffic areas. It has a long life spam as a result to its ability to handle a constant rotations and cycles.

In addition, the commercial grade locks offers a wide range of different options for your needs. Whether it’s for an emergency exit door, gates, windows, front entry door, glass doors and more – There’s a perfect solution.
