Tricky Escapes: The Magic Of Locks, Keys, And Safes

Good day. I'm Joe Seymour and I work part-time as a magician. Recently, I've had to learn a few new tricks because, quite frankly, people aren't impressed with disappearing coins anymore. My new repertoire involves various tricks that use locks, keys, and safes as props. I've actually become quite fixated on all the different types I've found and how they work. My best trick these days is getting an audience member to put money in a safe and lock it with their own combination. Even in a digital world, people love seeing how quickly I can "crack the code". My newfound fascination with locks, keys, and safes has led me to seek out others who have a little know-how in this area. Hopefully, you'll enjoy my blog and my research will help me to gain ideas for new tricks. Just turn the key and step on in.

If You've Had to Get a Locksmith Out, Take the Chance to Use Their Expertise

Locks are a necessary part of keeping your home secure, but they can leave you in a nasty situation if you're unable to get in. Even people who are always careful with their keys sometimes misplace or break them or find that the lock itself is broken. Luckily, there's always a locksmith available to help you reclaim access to your home.

If you find yourself locked out and you need to call a mobile locksmith, they can usually fix your problem quickly so you don't have to wait around too long. While they're there, though, you should take the opportunity to ask them a few useful things.

Can they make you an extra key?

If you're locked out because you've lost your key, you might need to have a new lock fitted. This means you'll get a new key, too, and possibly a spare.

However, it's always best to ask for an extra one so you can give it to a neighbour you trust. If you've managed to keep your existing key, ask if the locksmith can cut you a second one anyway. That way, if you ever get locked out again, you can get back in quickly without having to call a locksmith out.

Would they mind taking a look at your locks?

As you have a lock expert with you, it's a good chance to have them assess your locks for wear and tear. They can preempt any future damage or breakage and prevent it from happening.

You might have to pay a little bit extra for this service, but it's well worth it to keep your locks in good working order.

Do they recommend any upgrades?

You may not have upgraded your locks in a long time—or ever. There are always ways to make your home more secure, and talking to a locksmith about new, stronger types of locks that are available can be really helpful.

If something they suggest interests you, you can probably book an appointment there and then to have brand-new locks fitted.

Are there any gaps in your security?

Locksmiths don't just know about the actual locks—they're also knowledgeable about where they're effective and how people gain entry into people's homes.

Ask your locksmith if they can see any areas like doors, windows and garages that aren't secure enough. They'll be able to recommend what you can do about it and book you in for assistance if you think it will be useful.
