AUTO LOCKSMITH TIPS YOU WANT TO KNOW

Tip #3 The car is unlocked, but I can’t find my keys. Should I lock it just to be sure?

Whether or not your car is in a secure location makes a difference. It may be okay to keep your car unlocked for the time being if it is safe and secure location that is off-limits to the public, such as a garage. The expense of getting new keys made, however, is substantially less than the cost of potential theft if the car is easily accessible to the public. If it is possible to lock it, this would be highly advisable as most professional locksmiths will be able to pick the lock open when making new keys.

Mistakes that Owners Make with Auto-lock Cars

locksmith near me, locksmith, locksmith close to me, locksmith near me | NorthRiding Mobile Locksmith & Safe Technician

You might remember when cars had proper metal keys and you had to unlock each door manually, including the boot and fuel tank. Nowadays, more manufacturers are producing auto-lock cars. Then came power locks and you only had to unlock one door and the rest opened automatically.

For years now, keyless entry is standard across the model range and the autolocking feature is quite common even in some modest models. Today most of the premium models have a keyless entry and start option in which you only need to have the key in your pocket and the car automatically opens all the doors and lets you start the engine by pushing the button, not physically pushing the key into the console.

These are all very convenient and advanced but also can be very problematic. Here are some problems that may arise from driving an auto-lock car!

Forgetting a key inside the car

One of the most common mistakes is when you forget your key inside the car and exit the vehicle. It will automatically lock itself in a matter of seconds and there is no way you can enter it.

The most elegant solution is to find the second key you got when you bought the car, but what to do if the second key is in your house and you are hundreds of kilometers away? Basically, nothing, you could either call somebody to bring you the second key, or call locksmith with their knowledge and tools.

We do not recommend you trying to open the doors using force or breaking the windows because it will trigger the alarm and you will look like you’re trying to steal the car.

Not properly closing the doors or the boot

Some new premium and expensive models have an auto-closing feature that automatically closes the doors.

However, most common models do not have that installed. The problem occurs when you don’t properly close the door or the boot and you left your car parked. The auto-lock feature will engage but will fail to lock the said door.

This will not only leave your car open but it will leave the interior light on. You could experience a dead battery or someone could enter your car. So before you let auto-lock do its thing, check all the doors and the boot before walking away.

Leaving pets or children inside the car

If you need to step out of the vehicle and you have passengers inside, always leave the key in the car. This way you will not lock your passengers or small children inside and leave them trapped.

This could be very dangerous if you are in a hurry and your car key is in your pocket and you have children in the back seat. You have to remember that once you are a couple of meters away from the vehicle it will automatically lock all the doors and anybody who is in the vehicle will have to stay inside until you come back.

If you find yourself in a situation where you need to gain access to your car, need a spare or duplicate key, then look no further! Give Jay a call on 082 651 6416 and he’ll be able to assist you at affordable prices.

BMW Key Replacement

key cutting near me, automotive locksmith near me, car key locksmith near me | NorthRiding Mobile Locksmith & Safe Technician

BMW vehicles and technology evolve over time, at Northriding Mobile Locksmith we have the tools, technology, and machinery to produce keys required for your BMW.  Next time you need a key replacement, skip the dealership and call Jay on 082 651 6416.

We believe that losing or misplacing a car key is an honest mistake and shouldn’t be an incredibly costly error, rather, it should be a problem that is relatively easy and quick to resolve. We specialise in fast key cutting and programming solutions at very affordable prices compared to most of our competitors.

Depending on the year and model of BMW, you might have a traditional car key or a state-of-the-art programmable key fob. The majority of BMW’s manufactured after 2000 will have a transponder style key. The key is used to start the engine and the transponder chip inside the key disarms the vehicles standard immobiliser system located in the engine control unit (ECU).  In either case, getting a replacement can be a challenge if you don’t have the original key.

Car keys (both laser cut and programmable) are more complicated than standard house or door keys. Your average locksmith might be able to help you unlock your car, but probably won’t be able to make you a replacement key. The design and functionality of car keys just vary too much from brand to brand. We not only do BMW keys; we also unlock and make replacement keys for a wide variety of other makes; including VW, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, to name a few.

Whether your BMW is an older style key, transponder key or you need an emergency key, we are on hand, best of all, our business is 100% mobile, which means we can come to you, get you a replacement key and get you back on the road ASAP. Give Jay a call on 082 651 6416 for professional service.

Why your commercial property needs a door closer

Why your commercial property needs a door closer

locksmith near me, locksmith, locksmith close to me, locksmith near me | NorthRiding Mobile Locksmith & Safe Technician

If you’re in a commercial property or business, you’re possibly aware of the advantage of door closers for entry doors. It’s a functional and effective way to ensure your property is protected from environmental elements and slamming doors while simultaneously ensuring high traffic areas are safe and secure as required. Keeping doors closed aids in reducing energy bills and safeguards against losing heat or cool air through poor performing doors.

Advantages of installing a door closer:

  1. Removes the issue of slamming doors;
  2. Ensures the door remains closed increasing security;
  3. Easy to use, ensuring smooth flow of traffic in a high traffic area;
  4. Maintenance is simple; and
  5. Reduces air conditioning and heating bills. 

Call or WhatsApp Jay on 082 651 6416 to discuss your specific requirements.

 

Safe lockout – what do you do?

car locksmith near me, car key replacement near me, auto locksmith near me | NorthRiding Mobile Locksmith & Safe Technician

Safe lockout – what do you do? 

Protecting your business’ valuables is a fantastic idea, but sometimes those same protections can prevent you from accessing the property. In the case of safe lockouts, the concern is often that the owner will never be able to get their valuables back, or that the contents might be harmed by the methods of opening the safe. With Northriding Locksmith & Safe Technician, the safety and protection of this property is of the utmost importance, and Jay will take every precaution to ensure the integrity of the contents.

Most safes work off a dial or combination lock system. This form of locking mechanism works, at its most basic level, on a system of tabbed wheels (the group of which is known as a wheel pack) that are moved by rotating the dial. The tabs of the wheels (known as the fence) all connect at a certain point, and when the wheels line up a bar attached to the nose (a metal hook shaped form) drops to unite the wheel pack. Once the bar falls into the fence the nose must catch in the cam (another wheel with a groove that fits the nose), and it is at this point that the safe can be opened. The way the wheels are manipulated with the dial may vary from safe to safe, but this is no issue for an experienced safe technician as it is redundant to entry.

 

A digital lock works off a bolting system that prevents the safe from being turned without the code. The bolt (when locked) prevents the handle from moving the boltwork (the part of the safe that is moved by the turning of the handle); and keeps the safe secure. The keypad will send an electronic signal to the bolt and if the code is correct, this will retract the bolt and allow the boltwork to move freely.

Safe technology has become very advanced throughout the decades, and the process of opening an office safe is made more difficult by their more secure nature, compared to the common house safe. Without an override key, the safe will need to either be picked or drilled open; this is best left to a professional, so the contents of the safe are not jeopardised.

It is important to note, that not all locksmiths are skilled in the art of opening safes and may do more damage if they do not know where to drill, thereby leaving your safe compromised and necessary to replace.  If you are in need of an experienced safe technician contact Jay on 082 651 6416; he will require a picture of the safe to determine the category to give you an accurate quote to open or service your safe.
