When locked out.

Posted on 11 December, 2018 at 13:05 Comments comments (6)

Whether you are stuck in an unfamiliar location or at your place of work, calling a locksmith is your best bet. The other options present a number of problems. Hence, it is best to consider the consequences of the not using a locksmith.

Some people try to “pop” their vehicle lock themselves only to wish they hadn’t once the damage is done. Using an opened wire hanger, a metal piece, or another on-hand option can easily damage your vehicle. In fact, it is always cheaper to call me than to fix damage to your car window or door jam.

Leave Your Vehicle?

Leaving your vehicle behind is an option some consider when they are in jam or have a spare key somewhere else. If the trip to your spare key is quick, this is a pretty good option (especially if your vehicle is in a relatively safe place). However, if leaving your car behind means going away for quite some time you may want to reconsider for two reasons.

If any potential thieves observe that your keys are locked in your vehicle, your vehicle will be easy to steal.

If your vehicle is in an illegal parking area, it could result in a trip to a towing storage facility.

Remember, if you need immediate service for a car lockout, call Amazing Tim Locksmith at (262) 442-7711


Winter is Coming.

A Little Maintenance Goes A Long Way

When it comes to locks and door systems, the key to avoiding costly problems lies in preventive maintenance. Especially during the cold winter months, when we rely most on our locks and doors to help keep us warm, protect us from snow, wind, and fire, secure us from unwanted intruders and keep businesses open and holiday shopping flowing. But as temperatures drop, worn locks can freeze and door frames can contract, causing alignment to shift, compromising function and hardware. Resulting in a poor fit between the lock and the door itself. Home and business owners may find that they have a hard time getting the key to turn in a deadbolt lock when both locking and unlocking exterior doors. High volumes of traffic can wear out seals, hinges, knobs, and closers on buildings, retail, and commercial doors. If left untreated these problems will only get worse over time and eventually get to the point where they do not work at all.

Change Locks

When to Have Your Locks Changed


You want to be secure inside your home. It can be wise to change out the locks with a certain amount of frequency to have that peace of mind.

When They Get Old

Does it take a while for your key to actually fit inside the lock? Sometimes locks simply get too old to function properly. This also means they are more susceptible to break-ins. If your house lock has been in use for years, then it may be time to get a replacement.

When You Move Somewhere New

Getting the keys to a new house is exciting. However, you have no way to find out who out there has a key to your new abode. As an extra precaution, it is good to switch out the locks as soon as you move. That way you know not everyone who has a key can enter your house.

When You Lose a Key

Losing a key is annoying. Before you go get a new one made, you may want to think about simply redoing the locks and getting completely new keys made. The reason is you have no idea who now has that key, and it is better to play it safe.

Changing locks comes in handy for a variety of situations.

Protect Your Home with Ring

By now, you’ve probably seen and heard about residential video security systems. Many Southern California homeowners have installed these HD security systems in their home for maximum security. The Ring security systems utilize state-of-the-art technologies to keep you in touch with your home.

Ring’s video doorbell signals you that you have a visitor and show you a video of your front doorstep, so you can visually check the alert.

Security Cameras

You can constantly monitor your home and yard with security cameras from Ring. The company makes two security camera products:

Stick Up Cam – this camera is attacked easily to the side of your house and starts recording when activated my motion.

Floodlight Cam – when something passes by this camera, it actives the recording function and turns on floodlights.


Community involvement

Community Involvement

Guaranteeing security involves broader actions than simply taking care of your own home. Working with the people in your community to build up a robust neighborhood watch program is not only a good security policy, but it also can add to a sense of camaraderie that allows your house to feel more like a home. A sense of neighborhood belonging can bring a great deal of comfort in your day to day life, both in terms of security and socialization.

A strong community will also have a strong reputation, and that reputation will be likely to spread among those who might otherwise seek to challenge your security. Being a member of a collective effort is a great way to make sure everyone is looking out for their neighbor's back, and can allow you to identify any potential threats and make sure your neighbors remain as happy and secure as you want to be.
