ARE HIGH SECURITY LOCKS WORTH IT?

High security locks are definitely worth considering for your commercial property or private residence.

There are a lot of benefits to high security locks that business owners don’t get with standard commercial door locks. So the real question comes down to, “What makes a lock high security?” There are several factors.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A HIGH SECURITY LOCK AND A STANDARD COMMERCIAL LOCK?

The first factor setting a high security lock apart from a standard commercial lock is the design of the lock.

Most standard commercial door locks are pin tumbler locks, which have wheels inside of a lock cylinder with pins. The key for this kind of lock is cut to match the pins in the lock. The more pins the lock has, the more cuts in the key, and the more precise key cutting is needed. Conversely, the less pins in the lock, then the less cuts on the key are needed, and thus less precious and skill is required of the key cutter.

When a commercial door lock has less pins, it’s easy to break into the door for two reasons. And Business owners can already imagine what comes next. First, because a thief needs less skill and time to pick the lock with a simple lock picking kit. And second, because a bump key can more easily fit in the lock cylinder and imitate the profile of a real cut key. In other words, a bump key, which is a thieving key that fits to the grooves of the pins in the cylinder, can be more primitive.

Most standard commercial door locks have 4 or 5 pins.

HOW HIGH SECURITY DOOR LOCKS WORK

High security door locks, on the other hand….have 6 or 7 pins. All those pins are much more difficult to break through using a bump key or a pick locking method.

But this is just the start of what makes high security keys so secure.

Another way thieves break into a commercial door is through drilling the lock. However, many high security keys cannot be drilled. (At least with most commercial drills that many thieves would carry). Because high security locks like a High Security Medeco Lock has built-in metal cross bars, these locks block a drill from penetrating to the core of the lock.

Lastly, high security locks are secure for a simple psychological reason. A thief sees a high security lock and thinks, “If they have high security locks, what other security systems do they have? Are there hidden security systems? Multi-point alarms?” High security locks have a psychological deterrence, keeping thieves at bay

WHAT KINDS OF HIGH SECURITY LOCKS ARE THERE?

door locks repaired by Alamo Lock and Key Locksmiths in HoustonThe most common high security lock brand in Houston is Medeco. Alamo Key & Lock carries Medeco brand High Security Locks and has installed dozens of these on storefronts, backdoors, private offices, and other commercial doors. Other important brands that Alamo Key & Lock can install on your door are Tuff Strike High Security Locks and Mul-T-Locks.

Business owners should take every precaution with their properties to prevent crime according to the City of Houston.

Alamo Key & Lock provides additional security devices and systems to help you keep your business safe:

HIGH SECURITY DEADBOLTS

In addition to brand name differences for your high security door lock and lever, business owners should consider a high security deadbolt for added protection. High security deadbolts can have metal plated protection and hidden vertical rods that are so tough to break through a thief would have to pull out the entire door frame.

HIGH SECURITY BACKDOOR BARS

High security back doors are extremely effective at securing a commercial door, because they literally secure the entire door to the wall from inside the building. The only way to remove these bars for a robber is to pull out the entire door and much of the wall with it. When considering a high security lock install, it’s good to think about high security bars too.

KEYLESS HIGH SECURITY LOCKS VERSUS KEYPAD HIGH SECURITY

Another security system concept to consider is whether to install keyless keypad high security devices, or use keyed high security devices. There is a huge difference in your security system in terms of whether you’re property uses keyed or non-keyed electronic security locks. For this reason it’s best to consult a professional locksmith to discuss the pros and cons of the different master key systems.

NON DUPLICATE KEYS

Another feature that makes high security locks so secure is that the keys that open them are non-duplicate keys. This means that only under certain conditions are they allowed, or even able to be, copied. No locksmith should duplicate a non-duplicate key.

Important Professional Note: In fact, if you do need your high security key replaced, copied, or duplicated, you must provide proof of ownership to the Alamo Key & Lock locksmith. If you don’t, the locksmith won’t make the copy for you.

Testimonials

  • As a real estate broker I often need a Houston locksmith to get a door of a property open to show a prospective buyer. I have worked with Alamo Key and Lock for a long time. Absentee homeowners often lose keys or tenants change locks to prevent the home form being shown. Alamo Key and Lock will always respond and get the door opened and a new key made. I also use them to change locks on foreclosures and evictions to prevent re-entry by the former occupants. I have been very satisfied with the service over the years.

  • They were the best and most prompt locksmiths I have experienced.

    Lly Gomez
  • I accidentally locked my car after putting my daughter in the child's seat in the back seat. It was a hot day also and I began to panic. A stranger called Alamo Key and Lock for me along with the police. I was surprised that the Houston Locksmith arrived at almost the same time as the police. The locksmith got the door opened and my daughter was fine. The policeman said if the locksmith did not come right away he would have had no choice but to break the window because seconds count. I owe a big thanks to Alamo Key and Lock for responding to my emergency so quickly.

  • Thank you Alamo key &lock and Francisco for opening my car total life savers. Flat rate scam free, I before I called them I called another place that wanted my car make and model, year, color and would give me a rate once they got there. I recommend them took less than minute to open it.

  • Very nice and professional young man came out. I completely gave up after two tow truck drivers came to try and get my keys out before him, but he was persistent and tried every which way possible. He could've easily said it would be more to make a key, but he tried and tried until he got it open. I am very grateful because not only did I not have to make a key, but he got my keys out really quick. Thank you guys!!!
