Locksmith in Parkchester Bronx NY 10462

Written by admin. Posted in Locksmith in Parkchester

One of our regular clients owns an apartment in Parkchester Bronx 10462.He called us after realizing that the keys he had could not open the door to the apartment he wanted to show the buyers. We picked some equipment and headed to Parkchester. We used the locksmith tools we had to open the door but we were not successful. We tried to pick the lock but it didn’t work. We were left with one option; to drill the mortise cylinder   and open the door. We had two methods to use in drilling the lock. The first option was to drill out the pins or drill out the cylinder. We tried drilling out the pins so as not to destroy the lock but it did not work. We finally decided to drill the cylinder. We drilled a hole through the cylinder via the guidance point. The pins were strong and resisted the drill for some time before they gave in. In two minutes time, our client had full access to the apartment. He took his visitors to various rooms and left us to do some repairs on some of the locks and install a new lock.

Luckily we had some new locks in our kit. We carefully removed the lock we had drilled so as not to damage the door frame. We drilled some new holes and had installed the new lock.  The lock worked pretty well and we started repairing the top lock.  After some twenty minutes, we had finished repairing the lock and it was working. We finally sprayed the locks we had worked on and finished the job.  The owner of the apartments was very happy with our work. He paid us for the job well done and promised to get in touch for more work in other apartments that he owned. We thanked him and left.

We provide  Lockouts, Lock Change & Repairs Honest, professional. Call Now (516) 263-7770.

We received a call from a gentleman from bayside queens who had been referred to us by a customer we had worked for in that area. He wanted us to install  deadbolt lock. He told us he was scared of the vandalism that had become rampant in the neighborhood. On arriving at his house, we embarked on the task he had requested us to accomplish. We requested our client to choose the deadbolt he wanted us to install. We had carried a number of the deadbolts locks.We had the single cylinder deadbolt, the double cylinder one, the keyless entry dead bolt and the electronic key less dead bolt. The client chose a double cylinder dead bolt.

We drilled a hole in the metal door as we also fixed the existing lock because the locksmith who had been there had done a shoddy job and it was necessary that we correct the mistakes he had made before installing the deadbolt. We picked one of the double cylinder deadbolt we had carried and tested to see if it was working or not. This deadbolt required a key in order to be unlocked and locked. We thought this was the best deadbolt that could provide the security the gentleman was looking for.

After fixing the locks on most of the doors ,we carefully installed the dead bolts. We tested each one of them to ensure that they were working well. After being satisfied with the job we had done, we called the gentleman and showed him how the deadbolts are operated. We gave him a few tips on oiling them to ensure that they continue serving him. He was happy with our work.

Locksmith in Bushwick 11221

How We Installed Mortise Locks in Brooklyn in bushwick 11221 .
There is a building that had three apartments and a main door. The building had been bought by a new owner who wanted all the locks changed. The new owner wanted a locksmith who could be able to install new cylinder mortise lock and also install a new cylinder for a jimmy proof lock.
I accepted to do the job and explained to the new owner that installing a mortise lock on a door requires certain information so that one can be sure of the specific locks that may be required. The first thing that one needs to do is to prepare the door and the correct measurements taken for trimming purposes.
For the purpose of Baldwin the mortise lock correctly, we visited he building for the purpose of establishing the way the door swings when it is viewed from outside. We also took the measurements of the door from the front back. We finally assessed the mortise bodies to determine the one that was suitable for the clients’ door.
We measured the thickness of the door to determine whether we needed special parts to ensure that the lock set works. We drilled the required wholes and precut lock mortise. We then proceeded to installing the mortise lockset.
We were able to use the holes that were drilled on the door. What we did was to try to cover other wholes which we thought were not necessary. Some of the holes were covered by the Baldwin itself. On some doors we were forced to drill some more holes so that we could comfortably install the mortise locks and deadbolt lock. The expertise we have gathered in installing hundreds of such locks was handy and helped us install the locks in the shortest time possible. He also requested to change the lock on mailbox completing the installation and we tested the locks to ensure that they were all working before we gave the owner the keys.

Locksmith in Levittown 11756

Written by admin. Posted in Locksmith in Levittown

One of the landlords of Levittown NY 11756,in long island,called us because she wanted us to change the locks
because she evicted the tenant. It was because he hadn’t paid the rent. The tenant had left with all the
keys. She wanted to have the keys to both doors; front and back with the same key.
This job had to be done fast because the lady had a new tenant who wanted to move into the house. So
we needed to re-key all the locks with the same key and install 2 quickset deadbolt lock and 2  quickset  knobs.
Changing the door knob
The first thing I did was to change the door knob; I installed the latch bolt followed by the latch bolt
plate. Thereafter, I installed the outside knob which I connected to the inside one using the screw posts.
Thereafter, I used the wood screws to install the new strike plate in to the frame and sprayed it using
WD-40 lubricant.

Installing the dead bolt
To install the dead bolt, I connected the thumb turn in to the trim ring of the cylinder through the slot. I
then installed the strike plates using the screws. .When I realized that the strike plate and the latch were
far apart; I installed a reinforcement plate and sprayed it using DW-40 lubricant.
After ensuring that all the locks are installed on the door, I tried the locks and handed 4 copies of the
keys to the landlord. She tried all 4 KEYS and confirmed that they were all working. She praised us for
our good work.
