Frequently Asked Questions
Wow, at Lockout Locksmith PA, we have had situations where the homeowner attempted a do-it-yourself during a lockout and failed. They ended up damaging the lock, door, and some part of the wall. Finally, they called a locksmith, and we opened the damaged door, but now they had to pay more to get everything fixed. You can try, but the risks are more expensive than the reward.
Secondly, if you live in a quiet neighborhood, the police might be alerted, and you could be arrested for attempting a break-in unless you can verify your ownership of the property. We highly recommend that you do not think about hacking into your own locks or any lock for that matter. Call our locksmith service at (484) 828-1883 now.
In other words, you are stealing your own car. Hmm, that is not right and wrong in every sense. The fob is a control system that receives a signal to start or open your car. Unlocking your car without the fob will immediately set off the alarm, and even if you succeed at switching it off, it will gradually go off after a while. The fob is supposed to sync with the car to keep it moving, and without it, it cannot go far. However, if the fob is an issue for you, do not take the risk but call (484) 381-2550 for an automotive locksmith to reset or change the fob chip for you. Your car is an investment, guard it jealously.

If your old locks have been compromised or your home is broken into, you need to upgrade your locks. High-security locks are not just another fancy product on the market, they are well-designed and durable locks aimed at stopping intruders from entering your space. High-security locks are resistant to bumping, picking, and drilling. Even hammering it is a difficult task unless you intend to spoil the door.

Commercial or industrial locks have complicated cylinders than residential locks. For most locksmiths, it is easy to rekey a residential lock because the lock cylinder consists of at most 5 pins that are easy to maneuver. However, commercial locks have more than 5 pins and up to 7 in some instances.
This is why they offer better security and are needed to keep commercial businesses safe. It also means you need a qualified locksmith to handle such locks in a rekey service.
Absolutely yes, it is a must, or you risk jeopardizing your life and safety. Most times, previous tenants, neighbors, friends, and even landlords have keys and can access your space.
