Therefore, we at Locksmith Melbourne put together a shortlist of things you should consider before you choose your 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.

For example, if you lost your keys, or if the key broke in the door lock. If there is a malfunction in the vehicle’s central locking system, or even if the remote key doesn’t work properly.

Please remember that once any of these situations occurs, the best thing to do is to call a professional locksmith to help you. We highly suggest not to try unlocking the car by yourself. That is because it can cause serious damage to the lock and the door of the car, and eventually will cost you more money to fix it.

Further, there are many things you can do to prevent car lockouts in the first place. We at Locksmith Melbourne put together a small list of tips on how to prevent a car lockout.

Prevent a Car Lockout by having a Spare Sets of Car Keys

One of the most important things you can do to guarantee you won’t lock yourself outside of your car is to always have a spare key within reach. You can keep a spare set of car keys in your bag, your home, office, or even give one to a close friend or relative.

So, in case you find you’ve somehow locked yourself out of your car or have lost your car keys, you could still open the car. Even if you don’t have the keys on you, and your friend has them, you can ask him to bring them. That way, you won’t need to spend money on the locksmith service.

Keep your car key in somewhere safe and always make sure your car keys are on you

Another reason for car lockouts is because you lost your car key. This situation can happen to anyone, even the most orderly person may be distracted and drop or forget their keys somewhere. There are many ways to minimize the risk of losing your car keys. you should consider taking these actions if you know you tend to lose things.

First, we suggest you have a habit regarding your car keys. Meaning, you can have a special pouch for them or you can attach them to your belt or handbag.

Second, It is also a good idea to have your car keys in a key ring with other objects. That can help lower the chances that your keys will get lost. You should put a big object like a keychain so you can find your keys easily and not to worry you might lose them because it’s a small key. Also, you should put something that isn’t valuable because if you will lose the key, the object will be lost as well.

Technology at Your Service

There are different gadgets available today designed to help prevent losing things such as keys. Most are some type of beepers you can set off using your phone or some other remote.
