herself outside her house as she attempted to force the door open. The lock of the door had
broken making it difficult for her to open the door. The first thing we did when we arrived

I received a call from a client in flushing queens she had lost a key to the old mul-t-lock and
thus, it had to be changed and replaced with angal rim cylinder. We arrived at her apartment
and carefully studied the old mul-t-lock. We had many options including removing the lock and
rekeying it. We could also replace the cylinder or replace the whole lock. Our client insisted on
having the lock replaced with an angal rim cylinder. We started by removing the rim cylinder
and finished the activity in 5 minutes. After assessing the lock we knew the size of the angal
rim cylinder that was required. We send our junior technician to the van to receive the required part to complete the job. Then after 10 minutes he came back with an angal rim cylinder which we fitted. Our client was happy with the job and thanked us.

Locksmith Installing a Lock in an Office in Queens

Written by admin. Posted in Locksmith Services in Queens

We respond to calls as soon as we are contacted. This is how we have been able to build a reputation for ourselves. One of our regular clients from Queens NY locked herself out of her office. When she tried to open it using an old key, it broke and got stuck in the lock. When we arrived at the office, our initial plan was to remove the latch and open the door using alternative methods.  We tried removing the key using our sophisticated tools but we were unsuccessful. For this reason, we decided to install a new lock.

Installing the lock

We started by removing the old lock and bought an almost similar lock which we thought could fit in to the existing hole.

Our experts have the mechanical know how which make lock installation easier using basic tools such as a screw driver. They assessed the door and the existing holes. They realized that some of the holes used by the old lock could be used while some could not. For this reason, they covered the extra holes and drilled new holes in proper locations so that the new lock could fit well.

We started by installing the internal components. We opened the door so as to carry out this installation easily. We screwed he faceplate in to the side of the door after planning the wood around the hole to allow the faceplate to fit. We fitted the outside parts and all the internal parts of the lock and slid the knob in to place.

After ensuring that all the components were successfully installed, we screwed the retaining screws to hold all the components firmly in place.  We ensured that all the screws were screwed from inside to avoid instances where one could unscrew the lock from the outside and open the door. We then tested the door before handing over the keys to the client.

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.

 One of my clients from Whitestone queens ny called me and asked me to come quickly because she had just finished her shopping and she was locked outside the car . She was too upset since she had  been locked outside and it was very hot. The lady had just finished shopping for food stuff such as meats and she was worried that the heat could spoil her foods.

When we got there, we saw a four years old cute child . The client who had called, me was yelling at her son because he locked the door.  This was an emergency which we had to attend to immediately. So we checked her identification and verified that car was her. After verifying that the car was hers, I decided that we use a slim jim which is known to open door during emergencies. The slim jim is generally a small piece of hardened steel which measures 24’’ to 30’’ inches. It is hardened steel which can give quick results depending on the nature of the car.

I slid the slim jim between the windows and lowered it to the lock mechanism.  After I was sure that the notch had touched one end of the lock , I raised  it up lifting the lock and it unlocked the vehicle.  The owner of the car was grateful, she thanked us  and we left.

  Enjoy Flat Rates at FrogLock A new client who was referred to us by an old client wanted to have the locks of her apartment changed. The client had just bought the apartment but she wanted the keys changed since she did not have information about the previous users and did not know who else had keys to the apartment. The client explained to us how busy her schedule was and that it was necessary we get her a single key which could open all the doors in the apartment. She explained that she liked our services because a friend had told her of our efficiency and our flat rate we charge all our clients. After studying the apartments and the locks, we realized that the locks were in a very good condition. We realized that it would be costly to try to change all the locks. We decided to rekey the locks to allow us give the client a single key to use in opening all the locks. We changed the tumbler and the wafer configuration of the locks so as to enable the new key we had cut to open all the doors of the apartment. Rekeying process The types of the locks that were on most of the doors could not allow us to rekey them by simply adjusting the tumbler .We had to remove each tumbler in all the locks. After we were through with the exercise, we scrambled all the tumblers and interchanged the bits that could allow us to achieve the desired results. We matched the different configuration because our objective was to end up with a single key which could open all the doors on the apartment as required by our client. We carried out a few combinations after which we tested the key to be sure that it met the client’s specifications. After we were satisfied with the results, we handed over the keys to the lady. She was thankful and paid us.
