Every job is successfully completed long before its even begun! Yes, it's true! Successful job completion begins with training and the right tools and equipment. Locks, lock systems, and emergency exit devices are designed to provide a long life of securing your property but if they are not installed or serviced properly, they will not provide the security that they were designed to provide nor will they operate for as long as they should. There are a miriad details that the casual observer will never notice that act to determine the funcionality and lifespan of a lock. The photos here show one such detail and the tool used to address it.

In some situations a deadbolt lock will need to be installed on a commercial steel door that has not been factory prepped for such. In many cases some technicians will simply drill the mounting holes and install the lock bolt on the door edge surface using sheet metal or wood screws. This leaves the face of the lock bolt sticking out where it often comes into contact with the door frame everytime the door opens and closes.  These constant blows quickly loosen the screws and the bolt becomes loose causing it to make even more egregious contact with the door frame, eventually leading to premature failure of the lock. The solution is to use the correct commercial locksmith tools and techniques to ensure that the door is prepped properly. In this example we are using what is called a squeeze play to form a mortice pocket for the deadbolt latch bolt. This creates a smooth, recessed mount wherein the face of the bolt is protected from hitting the door jam. We also use maching screws and tap the mounting holes so that the screws hold tight like they are suppossed to. This creates a clean professional look and also enures that the lock performs as it should for a maximum number of years. You can alway trust Master Locksmith Company to use best practices and the right tools for the job at hand. Whether you need a deadblolt installed, locks rekeyed at your home or business, commercial locks or emergency exit devices installed, you can trust Master Locksmith Company to do the job right.
