WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON MISTAKES WHEN BUYING AND INSTALLING SAFES?

In over 35 years of consulting Houston customers on installing safes, the most common mistake we see is where the homeowner chooses to place the safe. Because most homeowners think a safe in the closet is secure and out of house, this location is the first place thieves look.

For this reason we recommend to homeowners that they place a cheap, fake safe in the closet with non-valuable documents, and hide the real safe elsewhere. When a thief finds the fake safe in the closet, he or she will think it’s the real one, and waste their precious minutes trying to open it. Meanwhile, you have bought the police time to come and get the bad guy.

SAFE REPAIR AND INSTALLATION SERVICE

Various Safes and Professional Safe Locksmith in HoustonAlamo Key and Lock can repair your old safe and install new ones as needed. The most common ways old safes break is that someone loses the key combination or program, if it’s an electric safe, or a thief tried to break into the safe. Since breaking into a safe may damage it, the safe will likely need repairs.

Safe Locksmith Pro-Tip: In fact, we often recommend to customers that when they are building a new home or business, that they install a floor safe while the building is still under construction. Floor safes sit directly in the concrete, and no thief can extract it without heavy-duty equipment. In a very real way, only thieves from the movies could get into safes installed in concrete in the floor of a secure home. Since the safe is snug in the concrete with a trap door over it, all you see is the small dial of the safe, and there’s no way to get access to the points of entry a thief needs to break into it.

SAFE AUDIT SERVICE

During our safety audit of your home, we can assess what kind of safes are best for you, and where best to place them. For example, in sheetrock homes, we don’t recommend wall safes, since a thief can easily break through the sheet rock wall, take the entire safe, and then break it at his or her leisure. In addition, floor safes often need to be installed during a remodel or construction of the home, so we recommend hiring Alamo Key and Lock while you are still planning your home or a remodel.

SAFE CRACKING SERVICE

Alamo Key and Lock licensed locksmiths can crack safes that you need opened. Of course, homeowners and business owners will have to provide ownership proof of their safe before Alamo Key and Lock safe locksmiths will open it. Call the manufacturer and track down proof of purchase if you do not have any other documentation available. If the locksmith has to drill the safe, Alamo Key and Lock guarantees the repair for you.

Why do owners need to have a safe cracked? Most often the combination of the safe has been lost. Another reason is, if the safe has a smart or electronic keypad, the battery may have gone out on the safe, and the whole mechanism will no longer work.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT SAFES

WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON REASONS HOMEOWNERS BUY SAFES?

Alamo Key and Lock often recommends homeowners buy safes when they want to securely protect any valuable items. Safes can protect jewelry, guns, documents, and expensive materials like gold.

HOW DO I SERVICE A SAFE? WHAT ARE SAFE FIRE RATINGS? WHAT ARE SAFE SECURITY RATINGS? AND WHAT MAKES SAFES FIREPROOF?

WHERE TO BUY SAFES? WHO BUYS SAFES? WHO SELLS SAFES? HOW DO SAFES WORK?

Different kinds of safes work in different ways. A combination safe for example has a combination dial attached to a spindle which runs inside of many wheels. The wheels must be moved in alignment before the lever that blocks the safe door from opening, will open.

HOW DO LOCKSMITHS OR THIEVES CRACK A SAFE? HOW ARE SAFES CRACKED

Learning how a locksmith or thief cracks a safe may help you decide that in fact you do need a safe. Here’s a simple guide about how safe cracking works.

ARE SAFES WORTH IT?

Yes! Alamo Key and Lock highly recommends homeowners with valuable belongings protect them with a high-security safe. Because your safe is the last line of defense between your valuables and a thief, it must be concealed and correctly installed. Also, safes protect valuable documents, jewelry and guns from damage.

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!!!
