Ask us how often you should re-key a lock at your Westchester property.
Some people have the same keys to their Westchester, New York home that they’ve had for decades and never experience a problem. Others let their keys out of their sight just once and end up dealing with a home invasion or burglary. It is impossible to know what can happen or if you’ll fall victim to a crime, but one way to avoid such a situation is to re-key a lock whenever you feel it is possible a copy of your keys could be out there.
At Thompson Lock & Supply Corp., we can re-key a lock at your home or business, so you can have peace of mind that nobody else can gain access to your property. We also have a few tips for you regarding having the best security possible.
- Never leave your house key on the same ring when dropping your car off to be serviced.
- Never store an extra key outside your property. If you can think of a “safe” spot, it’s a given that a criminal can figure it out, too. Ask us about other alternatives, such as a key lockbox that requires a code to access.
- Re-key frequently, particularly if you give your keys to others on occasion, and always after an employee or roommate leaves.
If you would like more information about when to re-key a lock or how to go about other security measures for your home or business, do not hesitate to contact us. Keeping you safe is our mission and one we’ve held strong to for more than 30 years.
