Residential Locksmith Services

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]residential locksmith servicesIf you have recently purchased a home, you should consider taking advantage of Fairbanks Lock and Key’s rekeying service. When we rekey your home, you can keep your old locks, but only your new keys will be able to open your doors. That way, if a previous owner kept a spare key or gave a key to a friend, neighbor, realtor, or contractor they can no longer access your house. In cases of divorce, we recommend you have your locks re-keyed as soon as possible. Rekeying your locks before there is a problem can prevent you from walking into your home and finding your ex in your living room.

One of the latest forms of home invasion known as lock bumping or key bumping, involves only a simple key that can easily bypass your door’s lock. Without special tools and with only minimal effort, individuals can use this method to enter your home against your will. Because can be done so quickly, it is unlikely that your neighbors will notice the invasion and call the police. This leaves criminals free to plunder your home at will. Fairbanks Lock & Key can install special “Bump-Proof” locks for all the doors of your home. These locks incorporate special tumblers that are slightly different than the traditional door lock tumbler and some use a specially designed sidebar that renders the bump key useless. Because of this difference, the lock bumping will not work for those trying to gain access to your home. You and your loved ones will feel completely safe.

If there has been an incident and you need your home rekeyed immediately, call 374-LOCK. We offer 24 hour locksmith service and same day appointments at no extra charge. We even provide you with your first three keys for free.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Bump Proof Lock Installation

Protect your home, family and business from the lock bypass method called “key bumping” also known as “lock bumping”. The easiest way to prevent lock bumping is to install a high security lock cylinder. Our patented cylinders can be added to your existing hardware in your home or office. We can also add our high security system to most hardware on our website.

What is Lock Bumping?
Key bumping (or bumping, rapping) is a covert entry technique used to quickly open pin-tumbler based locks. Key bumping is a method of using a modified key that fits a target lock to create a kinetic energy transfer between top and bottom pins in the lock. Essentially, top pins are “bumped” above the shear line allowing the plug to rotate. Key bumping is similar in function to a pick gun.

Home Security Survey

Home Security Survey is a critical on-sight examination of a property to determine what the present security status is, identify any deficiencies or excesses of security, determine what level of protection is needed, and make recommendations to improve the overall security of the premises.

Most burglaries in Fairbanks are committed by novice to adept skilled burglars. They use such tools as rocks, screwdrivers, channel lock pliers, etc. to gain entry.

Their targets are often selected at random, based on their perceived opportunity to successfully commit the crime. Due to the inadequate security of many premises, these relatively unskilled people can gain entry in 4 to 45 seconds.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
