PLEASE don't let this happen to you! 

This cutomer was locked out of his home due to the failure of this poor quality lock. These locks are made of die cast materials, hollow body shells, and thin skinned faces. They provide little to no security and can break suddenly at any moment.

We got the door opened and installed a commercial grade deadbolt.

These Professional Locksmith Service deadbolts are made with heavy brass and solid die parts. No hollow shells or cheap cylinders. The bolts are 1 inch throw solid brass with an anti saw pin built in. We install them with the heavy duty strike which is supplied. This may sound like a "no brainer" but some unqualified locksmiths will throw them out. We install them AND  add some of our own 3" screws to securely mount it to the 2x4 stud in the frame of the door. Master Locksmith Company gives a LIFETIME WARRANTY on these locks! (excluding trip charge and labor) That is unheard of! We at Master Locksmith Company believe in what we sell and back up what we do! Call us anytime!

When opening your store and opening the door do you have to pull on the door really hard to open it? Remember that loud scraping sound? These conditions are caused by the hinges, or pivots, wearing down. This can be a very dangerous condition for a door. If left to continue the door can actually fall on an unsuspecting customer!

These photos show a set of commercial door pivots in the early stages of deterioration. What will quickly happen is the pivot in photo three will break in two and the door will fall. This can cause more damage to the commercial door and could also hurt someone badly. This opens the issue of negligence and litigation. Again, the costs of doing nothing outweigh the costs of fixing commercial door hardware. This has always been the philosophy of Mike Wilson and Master Locksmith Company. Fix now or pay later.

As you can see, repairing commercial door pivots is no small task for a Houston Locksmith. If you are a Houston Locksmith customer, please choose carefully! Master Locksmith Company has nearly 30 years of commercial locksmith experience, is licensed by the state of Texas, and maintains commercial insurance. A quick search on the web for a Houston Locksmith returns MANY unlicensed and uninsured  "Houston Locksmith" companies! None of these types of locksmith companies provide a good ROE. Return on envestment applies to all aspects of a business, including CODB, costs of doing business, which includes building and site maintenance, and security. 

As can be seen in these photos, the commercial door pivots here are broken and badly deteriorated. I have seen worse but these are bad enough to cause the door to fall at any moment. After installing the new pivots on the commercial door and the counter parts onto and inside the commercial door frame, Master Locksmith reinstalled the door. And forgot to take photos of the rehung door! Opps! Anyway, the door opened and closed perfectly  without scraping on the frame or the threshold. Just like new! This should be the goal of every Houston locksmith!

As a prominent commercial locksmith in the city of Houston, Master Locksmith Company's Mike Wilson, stays very busy. We encounter all types of door and hardware problems in the Houston lockmith market. For example, at the Whole Earth Provisions store we found oil leaking from one of the door closers and the flush bolt on one door was broken, causing it to "fall" into the locked position. Both of these problems create hazards for store personel and customers! How many times have you entered a store and have had the door violently slam behind you or on you? To the credit of the management at Whole Earth, they did not want anyone hurt by these broken lock and hardware conditions.

Master Locksmith Company replaced the door closer with a high quality closer and then proceeded to remove the door in order to replace the broken flush bolt.

   This is a picture of the bolt in it's locked position. This was causing people to run into the door and hurt themselves. Really, they would often hit their heads very hard! It is also a hazard in an emergency. These doors must be unlocked to allow people to exit in the event of an emergency. 

 This 3rd picture shows the old bolt next to the new commercial grade flush bolt that we installed in it's stead. The old bolt is a residential grade bolt. One that would be found on a door at a home and not designed to be used everyday.  Houston's locksmith, Master Locksmith Company, only uses high quality components. Houston locksmith customers do not want something that is going to break! 

I often have discussions with home and business owners regarding the merits of buying high quality versus Home Depot quality locks and hardware. More often than not, most agree that it is worth the higher cost for locksmith quality hardware and service. Cheap throw-away hardware is just that: throw away junk. Junk which endangers the integrity and safety of a home or commercial facility. Master Locksmith Company believes that cheap is never good and good is never cheap. Don't be that person who believes otherwise. Nothing good comes out of a cheap job. Something is always sacrificed. Quality components or skilled craftsmanship. If you want both of these for your Houston Locksmith job requirements, call Master Locksmith Company. We service all of locksmith in 77005, locksmith 77401, locksmith 77025, locksmith 77054, and locksmith 77030.
