Killeen, TX Locksmith Installs Deadbolts to Better Secure Homes

Killeen, TX (PRWEB) June 24, 2017

Doorknobs are for convenience, deadbolts are for security.

There are many ways homeowners can boost home security, such as getting a guard dog or having an alarm system installed. But unless there is a working deadbolt lock that is used properly; homes simply aren’t secure against forced entry. Yair Frenkel, owner of TX Premier Locksmith in Killeen, TX says: “In the majority of home burglaries, intruders use force to gain entry. If deadbolts are not being utilized, the intruders are able to kick the door in.”

What is a Deadbolt?

A deadbolt is a locking mechanism that is engaged by turning a knob or key, without a spring action. It has a steel bolt that extends into the door jamb and the strike plate of the door frame, making it more secure than a keyed entry doorknob. There are two types of deadbolts; single or double cylinder. The single-cylinder deadbolt is operated by a twist knob on the inside of the door and a key on the outside while the double-cylinder deadbolt is operated via a key on both inside and outside of the door. Single-cylinder deadbolts are most popular as they allow residents to escape the house much more easily in an emergency situation such as a fire.

How do Deadbolts Help Stop Forced Entry Burglaries?

According to the latest FBI statistics, there were an estimated 1.6 million burglaries in the United States in 2015. Out of all burglaries, 58 percent were the result of forced entry. Frenkel says “Every home should have a high quality deadbolt with a hardened steel bolt”. For the deadbolt to function properly and keep residences secure against burglaries, the steel bolt must extend fully into a hole on the door jamb that is reinforced with a metal strike plate. If the bolt doesn’t extend all the way into the hole or if a strike plate isn't used, the lock and door frame can be compromised. “When someone kicks in a door, it’s not typically the door that breaks, it’s the door frame,” Frenkel says; “Three inch screws should be used to reinforce the strike plate into the studs of the frame of the house.”

Home Security Only Works if Used Correctly

Even if a deadbolt lock is installed on the door properly by a professional locksmith, it won't make a home more secure if it is not used regularly. Many homeowners tend to lock the keyed entry doorknob but often neglect to lock the deadbolt. Frenkel says “It is a good idea to teach all age appropriate household members to use the deadbolt every time they lock or unlock the door”.

Waco, TX Locksmith Offers Professional Lock Installation & Service

Waco, TX (PRWEB) June 24, 2017

The weather is heating up and the days are getting longer, providing the perfect opportunity to spend time outdoors. Home and business owners should be aware that the summer months provide more than warmer temperatures that are perfect for BBQ’s and trips to the lake. In fact, mechanical locks and keys can be negatively affected from direct exposure to the sun. When it comes to the security of homes and commercial properties, it is important to contact a professional locksmith service to avoid the risk of lockout problems and break-ins. The knowledgeable locksmiths at TX Premier Locksmith recommend professional lock installation and service. Owner, Yair Frenkle said “The effects of the heat in Texas during the summer can have disastrous effects on locking mechanisms if they are not properly installed and serviced by a professional locksmith.”

Are You Experiencing Swelling Doors this Summer?

It is not uncommon for property owners to experience issues with jammed locks on exterior doors and windows during the heat of summer. As the temperatures rise the frames begin to expand which can result in locks becoming stuck in one position leaving the property owner struggling to secure the lock. The same theory applies as the frames contract during the cooler evening temperatures. This is particularly common with deadbolt locks which can become compressed within the door as the door frame begins to swell resulting in the bolt making contact with the doorframe instead of inserting into the housing of the locking device. Keep in mind that these types of issues can also occur with metal door hinges and weather stripping that is attached to the door.

Preventive Locksmith Measures

The first preventive measure is to contact a professional locksmith for lock installation to ensure that locks are properly fitted to the door frame. This dramatically reduces chances of lock problems from changing weather. A locksmith can also be hired to routinely lubricate locks to make them easier to turn. To do this, the lock mechanism is taken apart, lubricated and reassembled accordingly. In addition, commercial businesses in Waco, TX that have wooden exterior doors and door frames can have them replaced with fiberglass or steel materials that aren’t as prone to expansion and contraction. Finally, a locksmith audit can determine security weak points that need to be addressed. “TX Premier Locksmith offers expert consultations on the best methods to avoid lockouts, break-ins and other security problems” Frenkle said; “locksmith audits are valuable for anyone who treasures their security and prioritizes the protection of their homes and businesses”.
