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.

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.

Install a Security System with an Alarm and cameras:

Some people might think that installing a security system in their business is a little too much. It could be because they think it’s not necessary or because it can be quite expensive. However, you should know that simply installing a lock in your business isn’t enough to keep it secured. Trust us, Installing a security system on your property or in business is the best thing you can do in order to keep it safe. A reliable system provided by a major security company can change any insecure feeling you might have regarding your business. We understand that not all business owners can afford such a system, but we promise you will not regret it!. Also, you might feel at the beginning that it wasn’t worth installing it, but trust us it’s worth it.

Moreover, there are many benefits to the use of a security system. For example, as you probably know, it’s a great deterrent for any burglars who’re looking for a place to break into. Also, installing a security system with an alarm is very important because it will alert you and your neighbors in case someone will try to break into your property. In addition, installing cameras is also a must because in case someone will break-in into your property, the cameras will catch him.

Install a Smart lock instead of a Lock with a key

We highly suggest you install a high-security lock or a smart one (with a pin code or fingerprints). That is because in most cases it deters the burglars from breaking into your property. Most burglars will choose not to deal with a smart lock, instead, they will prefer a property with a simple lock that they can break. Besides, if you have any questions about what type of lock is the best for you, please contact us. We can answer all your questions and install the lock for you.

Make sure all your Locks are working properly

One more important thing you need to do every time you leave your property is to make sure that all of the locks are fully operational and have no problem. That way, you can make sure there aren’t any problems that will eventually make it easier for the burglar to break in. 

Further, in case you did find out there is a problem with one of the locks, don’t wait to order a professional locksmith. Leaving the lock broken or damaged will increase the chances of a break-in.

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.
