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.
