Things to Learn as a Locksmith

locksmiths near me

A locksmith must, of course, learn the basics of being a locksmith. The locksmith must learn the tools necessary, the machines used, the locks and systems on the market, key identification, panic hardware, electronic security, business security, home security, and tax information. The locksmith must also learn advertising, bookkeeping, employee information, hiring techniques, safety measures for him or herself, safety for the employees who will be left at the office, pricing, and customer relations.

Being a locksmith involves much more than a person might realize. This is a craft becoming more sophisticated as the technology and the laws increasingly become more complicated. The knowledge of the locksmith must change and grow with the business and the modern world.

Customer relations are important for any business. It is important to gain the trust and the respect of the customers to maintain the business. The locksmith must learn how to respect customers’ privacy and private information. The locksmith must learn how to communicate effectively with the public.

Learning how to locksmith from an accredited institution is important for the quality of the information provided and the results. If you learn locksmithing on your own through books or personal experimenting, you will not gain the necessary credibility to earn your place in the business world. This may gain you a tiny following of customers, but it will also carry great risks. Knowing how to access people’s homes, businesses, and vehicles must be treated as highly confidential information.

It is possible to operate a small locksmith business. If you want to specialize in only automobiles, you can concentrate on education and equipment for that particular field’s locksmith knowledge. You may want to expand your knowledge to focus on locksmithing for residences only or businesses only. Locksmiths have a choice of several areas to learn and specialize in. You can choose to combine all the areas and learn one area at a time, expanding your knowledge and your business slowly.

One thing to remember when choosing the field of the locksmith is the demand in your area. How many locksmiths are already available? What are their specialties? Are there any public complaints about the local locksmith businesses? Are there any public needs that aren’t being met? How can you put your business one level higher than those that are already available? Knowing which questions to ask is also an important learning step for a locksmith.

Being a locksmith can be very rewarding for the right person, but it is important to research the field to learn if this is the right business for you. Two more questions to ask while learning about being a locksmith are: what hours must you keep, and what demands will this field of the workplace on your family? The public can be unforgiving in times of desperation.

If a storm has damaged a home or a business, if a criminal has broken into a home or business, or if the security system has malfunctioned, will you be able to accommodyour customers’ needsmers? As always, preparation is the key to success!

    Picking the right lock.

    Lock picking

    Lock picking is the activity that opens a lock without the proper key. When we are thinking of it, usually we are associating it with illegal activities. But that isn’t always the case!

    For example, let’s think about what we can do if we have lost the house key or locked ourselves outdoors. If we live on the ground floor, we could jump through the window (if it’s not open, we can easily break it with a stone). But if we are not, we either unlock the door or… break it (which is not a cheap solution). With a bit of talent and an unsophisticated lock, we can manage to unlock it ourselves. The reality is not quite like in the movies (when a door is unlocked in a couple of minutes, just in time for the hero to save the heroine). The best solution is to call for a professional locksmith who is trained to deal with these situations.

    When picking a lock, a locking tools kit is needed. The simplest kit contains a tension wrench (a screwdriver, for example) and a lock pin (a long, thin piece of metal, curved at the end). In an emergency, a lock pin is successfully replaced with a hairpin. A professional kit will have many tension wrenches (in different sizes and shapes) and a lot of dimensions for the lock pins. Or it could have a pick gun (contains many metal pieces that vibrate and push all the lock pins up at once).

    The first step is to insert the tension wrench in the keyhole and turn the cylinder as a normal key would do. Then we can insert the lock pin and carefully start to lift the pins. When they reach the normal position, we will hear a slight click, and the lock is unlocked.

    Along with “picking,” there is another technique called “racking.” It presents a lower level of precision. We need a special pick called a “rake.” This will be inserted until it hits the back of the cylinder (not slowly like a pick), and it will be pulled out quickly to hit all the pins up on its way out. In the meantime, the cylinder is turned with the tension wrench.

    Master locks are one of the hardest locks to be picked! They are not infallible, but they do have an excellent protection system. They were invented in 1921 by Henry Soref, who thought of producing the padlocks in laminated layers of steel. While the Master locks in padlocks have the same picking system as the other locks, Master locks in combined formats require a patient and skillful locksmith.

    There are many lock picking books, which teach us the techniques of lock picking step by step. Sometimes they are accompanied by a video or CD for a better illustration. Some books are written for professional locksmiths, but many others are directed to people who want to know more about the subject. Sometimes the books show the history of locks and lock picking or how they can become a locksmith!

    When buying a lock, we have to keep in mind the value of what we intend to protect! Most locks can be picked, but buying a good one increases our security and safeness!

    Let’s look at locks.

     

    History

    From the beginning of humankind, people have felt the urge to protect what they possess. They start by covering their caves’ entrance with stones; later, they hid their gold and jewels in the ground.

    Then they discovered locks. These were first made of wood and rope. They served the purpose well, although they were not so nicely designed. There is a lot of historical proof that certifies the use of locks long before we could imagine. Even in the Bible (Old Testament, Books of Judges), we frequently mention locks and keys.

    Types

    In modern society, we have keys and locks for everything: the house, the office, the car, the bike. We even have more than one key for the same building; keys and locks are so much a part of our daily routine that we don’t consider them (or maybe we do that only when the ring of keys is too heavy placed in our pockets).

    But we do give a lot of thought when we have to pick the type of lock or key type. Basically, we are talking about mechanical locks (based on mechanical activation of the keys), electro-mechanical locks (can be both mechanical or electrical activated, but usually the key is replaced with numbered buttons that have to be pressed), and electrical locks (activated by a card key that has a particular code, programmed to be read by a card reader which is controlled by an automated central or a local processor).

    How to pick the lock?

    It is not as complicated as we think, but also not as easy as it appears in many movies. Some say that this requires both art and science. We have to have a good knowledge of the lock mechanism and some practice.

    Firstly we insert a tension wrench in the lock (a screwdriver, for example) and, with slight pressure, turn the plug (the lock cylinder) like the proper key would have done (we have to figure out what is the normal direction for the key to be turned). It will help create a small place between the lock pins (placed inside the lock). We have to insert a lock pick to lift them (like the proper key will do when inserted in the lock). Doing this and continuing to apply pressure on the tension wrench, we will hear a slight click (made by the pins when they fall in the right position), and the lock will be unlocked.

    For unsophisticated locks, we can use a metal hairpin as a lock pick. But professional locksmiths need an adequate pick tools kit. Basically, this contains a tension wrench (they have different shapes and sizes) and several picks(long pieces of metal curved up at one end). Some can use an electrical pick gun (contains long metal pieces, and when they vibrate, push the pins up and unlock the lock).

    Rekeying lock

    The process of rekeying is quite simple (it takes a couple of minutes), and it shouldn’t be confused with the process of replacing a lock. Actually, it consists of disassembling the lock cylinder and replacing all the old lock pins with new ones to match the new key. Then the cylinder is reinstalled in the lock!

    When, for example, a member of the family loses the house key, we can assume that a burglar has it. We should go immediately, re-key the house lock to prevent potential theft. It doesn’t cost a lot of time and money, but it can spare us big stress. The same procedure is advisable when moving into a new house/apartment.

    The better the lock is, the harder it will be for a burglar to break in!

     

    Car Keys Locked Inside

    Car Keys

     

    While backing out of your garage or even just your driveway this morning, you sure managed to leave some scratches on your car. Not only that but after a couple of miles, you seemed to have run out of gas. Luckily, you were near a gasoline station and were able to fill up your fuel tank.

    However, it seems luck has fled from your side for the day. After filling up, you were able to drive for some distance when a tire of your car went flat. Of course, you had to change the tire yourself. And while you were at it, you noticed that the hubcap you purchased along with some Pontiac auto parts seemed to have fallen somewhere between your current location and your garage. Because you were already late for your work, you hurriedly grabbed your things and rushed out to catch the elevator.

    Tough luck. Now that you need to use your car to drive back home, you just realized that in your hurry, you forgot to take your car keys with you. And they are just where you left them – inside your car. You may not be a locksmith, but if you own a car that has been created before the 1980s or if you may have left a window of your car slightly open, you may have just the slightest chance of opening the car yourself.

    You do need a wire hanger to do this challenge. Straighten the hanger out and then bend an end. Make sure you form a hook or even a triangular handle. This would serve as the extension of your hand in breaking into your own car. You can also try opening a window through prying. Just use a putty knife and slip it between the window and the door.

    When you have part of the window open, slip the wire hanger you bent through it. Your task would be to actually move the hanger through your car and try to pull the door lock open. This may not be easy, but it can be achieved.

    If you own a newer car model, well, the best move for you would be to call a locksmith and let him do the work.

    Broken Key Removal (Pin Tumbler Locks)

    Broken Key Removal (Pin Tumbler Locks)

    Having a key break off in one of your locks can be a real pain in the neck. But with the proper information, you can better understand the problem and take steps to solve it. With the information I provide in this article, you stand an excellent chance of removing the key yourself and preventing it from happening to you in the future.
    WHAT CAUSES KEYS TO BREAK
    Most keys, even brass, and nickel-plated keys will eventually wear out and break along any of a key’s cuts. But some conditions will speed up the process, such as:
    1. The key has one or more deep cuts, which become the “weak point” of the key. After so much use (or just a little abuse), the key will break at these points. Having a deep cut as the first cut (next to the head of the key) can be real trouble, but a deep cut in the middle of the key can cause big problems too;
    2. The key is made of a light-weight material not suitable for everyday use. Keys cut on aluminum blanks are a prime example. They will also break at a deep-cut “weak point” only sooner. Identified by their lightweight and either grey in color or sometimes bright colors such as red, green, blue, or gold.
    Usually, before a key breaks, one or more tiny cracks will appear by the cut about to give way. You may want to check your keys right now -at least the ones you use and depend on every day. If you see a tiny crack being formed by one of the cuts or if the key is bent or misshapen in any way, go to your nearest locksmith or key shop and get another one or two made. And to be safe, don’t carelessly toss the old key away. A new key could be made from the pieces and used to access your property.
    BROKEN KEY REMOVAL TOOLS
    We, locksmiths, have a variety of tools for removing broken keys from locks. One of the more common tools I use is made of springy steel that is 5″ long, 5/16″ wide at the handle, and .022″ thick. There is a small tapered barb at the end of this tool that will dig or “bite” into the broken key piece so the piece can be pulled out.
    It is not necessary to invest in a broken key extractor tool. As long as the tool you use is made of sturdy metal, is narrow enough to enter the keyway, and has a barb to grab onto the broken key, you will likely be successful. A scroll saw or jigsaw blade should do the trick.
    PROCEDURE #1 – Partial Key Broken Off In Lock
    When a deep cut gets too weak somewhere in the middle of a key, you end up with the key’s front part in the lock and the remainder in your hand. The good news is the lock is probably in the proper position for key removal (more on that later).
    FIRST – unless the lock has been in good working order (with the key going in and out smoothly) before the key breaking off, I suggest spraying a lubricant such as WD-40 or Tri-Flow in the lock’s keyway first. You want the broken key piece to slip out as easily as possible, and a dry or gummy lock will make the job harder.
    SECOND – insert the removal tool into the lock’s keyway so that the barb (or teeth) can contact the key piece’s cuts to be removed. It would be best if you told me how far to insert the tool based on how much of the key you still have in your hand.
    THIRD – let the barb “bite” into one of the broken key pieces’ cuts and give the tool a sharp tug towards you. The key piece should be coming flying out.
    FOURTH – take the two pieces of the key to your local locksmith or key center and get another one or two made.
    PROCEDURE #2 – All But Key’s Head Broken Off In Lock
    When the first cut in the key is deep and gets too weak, you end up with just the key’s head in your hand. Most of the time, what remains in the lock is the operating part of the key. All key cuts necessary to operate the lock are stuck in the lock (if you are fortunate, enough of the key will be sticking out, so small pliers/tweezers are all you need to remove the broken piece-but that usually doesn’t happen). You can test if the lock will operate by taking a small screwdriver and, using it as a key, try turning the lock cylinder. If the lock cylinder does not turn, follow procedure #1. If you can turn the cylinder more than a few degrees to the right or left, you have to make sure the lock cylinder is positioned to remove the key. Let me explain…
    Most locks have one position that a lock cylinder must be in for key removal. If you were to insert a key in almost any pin tumbler lock and turn it, the key could not be removed until the lock cylinder is back in the proper key removal position. The same is true when removing a broken key piece that still works the lock. The key cylinder must be in its normal key removal position, or you will be wasting your time trying to remove the broken piece.
    FIRST – as in Procedure #1, we suggest spraying a lubricant such as WD-40 or Tri-Flow in the lock’s keyway first.
    SECOND – insert the removal tool into the lock’s keyway so that the barb (or teeth) can contact the key piece’s cuts to be removed. It would be best if you did not have to insert the tool very far – so that it reaches the first or second cut of the key piece.
    THIRD – let the barb “bite” into one of the broken key pieces’ cuts and give the tool a sharp tug towards you. The key piece should be coming flying out of the keyway.
    FOURTH – take the two pieces of the key to your local locksmith or key center and get another one or two made.
    Now that you have read through this information, you should be ready to attempt removing a broken key on your own. Good Luck! NOTE: This article (with pictures) can also be found on my website https://colorado-locksmith.com/

    Airport Locksmiths

    Airport Locksmiths

    car locksmith Colorado

    If you are a locksmith going to an airport to travel for your own personal business or pleasure, you are sure to take note of the many different locks in an airport. There are locks on employee lockers, drawers, cabinets, supply closets, outbuildings, luggage, restricted access areas, planes, motorized carts, the many vehicles in the lots, etc.

    There is no doubt that locksmiths have done their share of visiting airport parking lots to unlock automobiles for weary travelers. Airport security is under higher scrutiny these days, which aids the locksmith by elevating their importance and hampering them by putting their skills and reputation under more intense scrutiny.

    Locksmiths who service airport equipment must be able to welcome corporate accounts. They must be bonded, insured, masters in their trade, and security consultants. They must perform services for some very high profile customers and do so in a discreet manner, using class and finesse. They must dress like a professional, speak as a professional, and work as professionals to make the uppermost impression on the bigger clients.

    Some of the services an airport locksmith would perform include:

    1. Restricted key systems
    2. Locks and safes
    3. Electric strikes
    4. Panic bars
    5. Mailbox locks
    6. High-security locks
    7. Access control systems
    8. Buzzer systems
    9. Exit alarms
    10. Door and frame repair

    Some of the hardware companies an airport locksmith would become acquainted with are Gray Tools, Medeco, Makita, Edison, Irwin, Lepage, Freud, Dominion, Canaropa, Para Paints, Kaba, Sargent, Corbin-Russwin, and Yale.

    An airport locksmith must have a wide range of knowledge and skills to handle the variety of automobiles they will encounter. He/she would have to make keys, repair locks, change locks, provide 24-hour service, and repair ignitions.
    There is a wide range of personalities that any locksmith has to encounter regularly. But in an airport, emotions often are on a high because of the excitement and anxiety in the atmosphere. Travelers and employees are harried, tired, angry, sad, worried, and excited. This puts customer service in the high priority category. Relating to people who are in an extreme emotional state takes patience and empathy. Offering a kind word, showing restraint, remaining calm, and reserving opinions are important for the locksmith. It’s more humane as well as being a boost to the image of the business and reputation.

    Word of mouth is an essential form of advertising. If building a big business is important, or creating a franchise line of businesses is a goal, then the word-of-mouth from the various types of people in an airport is a positive step forward. Being considerate to the “little man” is just as important as being considerate to the “big boys” of business.

    If you are doing business with anyone associated with an airport, you should emphasize considerate behavior. It will take you farther in life as well as in business. You should be able to understand your limits as well as recognize your potential.

    High Priority for Locksmiths

    Shunted locks are just one of the items an emergency locksmith must know well. A shunt is a process of turning aside or moving to an alternate course, a bypass. Shunted locks come in different brands. One of those brands is that of a British company named Bramah. The prices for a Bramah shunted lock can go up to $193. These locks are made for wooden doors, metal doors, sliding doors, and cabinets.

    A shunt switch is used in a vandal-resistant mortise lock. These locks are used in places such as emergency exits. The complexity of these alarm locks requires educated intelligence on the locksmith that may be required to repair or replace such a lock.

    Locksmiths may also be called in a situation where an exit or emergency door has been locked or jammed. Some doors must legally remain unlocked. Any time they have become illegally obstructed, the locksmith may be called to undo the damage. Sometimes these doors are obstructed because of poor management or because of disgruntled employees.

    Locksmiths can be essential to hospitals, convalescent homes, ambulance services, and police stations. Emergency and health care facilities are of high priority in a locksmith business.

    Although some people would categorize being locked out of their vehicle as an emergency, some situations are of a higher priority. If someone’s health or life is at stake or a criminal situation occurs that requires an immediate response, the priority must be put on these situations.

    Some emergency locksmith businesses that advertise fast service operate from Atlanta, Georgia, to San Francisco, California. Several businesses operate out of many offices across the United States.

    One has to be especially careful about hiring an emergency locksmith. There have been instances where locksmiths who have operated for years have incorrectly billed the customers out of greed. One locksmith was fired from a hospital after eighteen years of service because he became greedy. He had an elaborate scheme that involved two other employees as well as him. This is an exception to the norm, though.

    We have to place our trust in someone, and many locksmiths work hard to earn the trust and deserve it. Just as there are people in other professions who turn bad, there are also bad locksmiths. It doesn’t make the profession bad, just that person. In general, it is an honorable and respected position. The men and women who enter it must go through a lot to become professionals, including becoming registered in a way that allows the police department and the Better Business Bureau to investigate their background. The majority are proud of their upstanding public image and work hard to maintain control of it.

    Locksmiths working with emergency personnel and police are another way they keep us safe. They repair the damage done by criminals, install systems that make it harder for criminals to gain illegal entry, and provide us with a sense of inner peace.

    Locksmith Certification

    Locksmith Certification

    Certification locksmith

     

    Summary: To engage in a locksmith profession, a locksmith certification is mostly required

    The traditional trade of locksmith is really one interesting profession. And as opposed to the common misconception of locking every dull and boring day, locksmith professions are among the challenging trades in the security industry.

    Though all practitioners of locks, whether breaking or making locks, are called locksmiths because they deal with locks, they also deal with several of the latter types that include as much technology as a cell phone unit. For instance, several security consultants also employ locksmiths’ services to identify the determination of risk versus the level of gain. Some other locksmiths deal entirely with digital electronic locks and security devices, implementing several technologies to complete a security system.

    To engage in a locksmith profession, a locksmith certification is mostly required. To that effect, some locksmith certifications are specialized to the locksmith’s skill to a specific lock manufacturer or the locksmith’s experience in the trade. To that effect, locksmith associations offer several locksmith certifications from different key manufacturers, which can then be taken until a master locksmith’s title can be achieved.

    Here are some sites that offer locksmith certifications.

    All About Lock Picking

    Lock Picking - Locksmith

     

     

    When you don’t have the right key, lock picking is a great way to open just about any lockout there. Normally, picking locks is something we associate with crime and illegal activities, although crime isn’t always the case. There are a lot of instances where locking picking skills can come in real handy. Take, for instance, a lost house key or locking your car keys inside your car. Even though you could always break a window, calling a professional locksmith is the best to go – it can save you a lot of money in repairs and get the lock open fast.

     

    To properly pick a lock, you’ll need the right tool kit. Even the most basic lock picking kit will contain a lock pin and a tension wrench. If you have an emergency, you can normally replace the lock pin with a hairpin. On the other hand, professional locking picking kits will normally include various tension wrenches in several different shapes and sizes, covering several different lock pins styles. Some include a locking picking gun, which uses vibration to push all the lock pins up at the same time.

     

    When picking a lock is necessary, the first thing to do is insert the tension wrench into the keyhole and attempt to turn the cylinder. Next, you can use the lock pin and gently pry up on the pins. Once the pins reach the normal opening position, you’ll hear a clicking noise, letting you know that the pins are in the right place – and the lock is open.

     

    There is also another technique to lock picking, which is known as racking. Racking uses a lower precision level and uses a special pick known as a rake. To use the rake, insert it into the keyhole until it reaches the back of the cylinder, then quickly pull it out so that it hits all of the pins when it comes out. A tension wrench is also used as well, to turn the cylinder.

     

    The hardest locks out there to pick are master locks. They offer an excellent protection system and aren’t as susceptible to picking as other types of locks. Master locks were invented by Henry Soref in 1921, introducing the first lock to use laminated layers of solid steel. Although master locks use the same picking system as other locks, those in combined format will require a locksmith with a lot of patience and skill.

     

    To learn more about lock picking, there are several books and illustrations that you can buy, which will show you the techniques step by step. Often, a video or Cd is included that will show you the techniques in action. Several books and videos were made by true locksmiths, although others are more directed at people who want to learn a bit more on the subject. If you want to become a locksmith or a professional at lock picking, you can also find books and videos out there to help you become proficient at picking locks.

     

    Anytime you buy a lock, you should always keep in mind that just about any lock can be picked. Although most locks can be picked, some take a bit more time and patience than others. When you buy a lock, you should always think about safety and select one that you know isn’t to penetrate. This way, you can have a sense of security in your lock – and know that you are safe and protected.

    Canadian Locksmith Associations

    Canadian Locksmith Associations

    Canadian flag - Locksmith

    Professional Locksmiths Association Nova Scotia is one of the groups a locksmith in Canada would want to be involved with to increase their chances of a solid career in locksmithing. There is also the Association of Professional Locksmiths, the Canadian Alarm and Security Association, the Master Locksmiths of Quebec, Inc., and the Professional Locksmiths Association of Alberta. While it is not necessary to overwhelm your schedule and interests, joining at least one of these important groups can provide positive benefits. One of those benefits is to be able to keep abreast of the latest news and happenings in the world of the locksmith. Another benefit is to build a bond between yourself and others in the same field of work.

     

    Making a positive image for a locksmith and his/her business is just one of the most important investments towards a healthy future in the business. Canadians take pride in their country and their training for locksmiths. An apprentice must first be hired as a trainee. They must find a journeyman for a mentor and enroll in the apprenticeship program. Eight weeks of class at a college are required, followed by an exam administered by the government. There are four periods of training this way that must be completed successfully before being given the honor of the Journeyman Locksmith title.

     

    The Canadian locksmith must do more than memorize the test material to pass the written exam. He or she must understand and apply the material with competence. The instructor supervises the hands-on learning.
    There is an annual locksmith auction for Ontario locksmiths, a golf tournament, a locksmith academy, an electric door operator class, and a locksmith convention. The basic locksmithing courses cost $300. There are separate costs for each area of locksmithing. Panic Exit Devices course costs $275. Lock Picking costs $175. Basic Safe Searching costs $275. There’s also Access Control, Door Closer Installation, Tricks of the Trade, and many more courses available for advanced learning.

     

    Of course, there is an at-home course that one can enroll in that suggests a budding locksmith can earn over $17 an hour after only nine months of training. Much like the distance courses offered in the United States for locksmiths, Kwikset and IICO are listed as the locks and key making machinery used during training. This course gives locksmith skills necessary; however, apprenticeship under an established locksmith gets you paid while you learn real-life situations rather than textbook versions. You can learn much from a seasoned professional, including what not to do!
    Whether you are learning in Canada, the United States, or Australia, education and apprenticeship are necessary to establish a locksmith career base.

     

    Learning on your own may give you the barest of starts, but you will need to prove yourself worthy of your title. The only way to convince future employers or future customers that you deserve their business is to be able to show valid certificates and licenses. Landing the big accounts will mean showing that you had the devotion and interest to prove yourself trustworthy.
