Billings OUR NEW LOCK INSTALLATION SERVICES
Call upon our nationally renowned locksmiths when you need new locks installed for your home or business!
Installing a quality solid door lock is the first step to keeping your home or office properly secured. Old locks are often the weakest point in any security setup, as they can be rusted, too many previous users may have had access to keys, or other issues. Making sure that your keys are yours and are up to date is the most important part of maintaining your security. Too many homeowners and businesses forget about security in their planning, putting all of their investments at risk. Perfect security is nearly an impossible goal, but through both planning smartly and making sure to properly assess risk, you can be at ease, without having to worry about leaving your home or business alone when you choose to spend time apart from it. But everything begins with the obvious. Are your door locks secure, or is it time to replace them?
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO CHANGE THE LOCKS?
For both residences and businesses, in general, security is inherited, meaning that all the security weaknesses are also inherited with the next tenant of a location. In general you don't know how many people have access to your keys, and ultimately how many people have access to your home or business right now. There's a good possibility that an ex-spouse of a previous tenant or disgruntled former employee of a previous business has access to your location right now. And that means security risks that you don't need. In fact there are a number of potential problem spots:
- When your previous employee 'forgets' to return the office keys
- When you have to relocate to a new office
- A roommate moved out but retained possession of the keys
- When you need to upgrade your security system
- As part of your home or office renovations
- When your locks are simply old, outdated or damaged
- Divorce, death, or a new tenant
- Moving to a new home
- If your vehicle was broken into and a copy of the keys were taken
- Your keys are lost or stolen
- After a break-in that damages your lock
We are here for you when it is time for you to upgrade your security with a wide range of security options for your home or your business (even your vehicle!)
LOCK REPLACEMENT SERVICES
We Specialize in Both Residential and Business Lock Installations
When you call us, we send over a specialist to perform an initial security assessment by request. We use a multi-point system to determine potential security weaknesses and where your security itself needs upgrading. We have a full line of security solutions for every home or business, from the most basic and affordable to the highest-level security options available. The reason for this is because we believe quality home security is everyone's right. Not everyone needs a fingerprint scanner; for the average household a decent security system and deadbolts will fill all their security needs.
What this doesn't mean is to run off to the local hardware store and just buy the cheapest deadbolt. Different doors work best with certain types of deadbolts, and unless you are experienced in installing locks, it is best to call in a professional to do the installation so that the door is locked properly. The biggest weaknesses in home and business security are often the result of user error, and often a poorly or incorrectly installed lock can be the cause of a break-in or security breach later. Instead of dealing with the danger and risk of doing it incorrectly, call on our professional, certified locksmiths today to install your lock correctly.
Car Lock Installations and Changes
As a total security company, we specialize in both individual and fleet security upgrades for your vehicles. You don't call your locksmith to fix your car-- why would you call your mechanic when you need to upgrade your vehicle security? Locks and security are our business and they are what we do. Don't go for substandard locks. We carry a full line of auto security solutions including locks for all model vehicles, so when you need to upgrade your mobile security, we are here to help you do it.
WHAT TYPE OF LOCKS DO WE SERVICE?
The long-time standard of personal and business security, the deadbolt lock is familiar to everyone. Most homes and many businesses are equipped with locks that are built into the door and the wall. Of course, newer technologies help to offer even more security such as digital locks, but the deadbolt for at least some time remains the most common lock technologies (though we are equipped to set up even the latest technological advances in security.) We service a variety of brands of locks, including:
- Master Lock

Mortise Deadlock: One Lock, Two Keys For Added Security
A Mortise Deadlock, at first glance, looks like a deadbolt, but it isn't: a Mortise Deadlock is unlockable on both sides with a key, as opposed to one side having a knob. What this means is that this type of lock is precisely the kind of lock you would use when you want to guarantee that only people authorized to do can get in. Therefore, it's most important to make sure that a lock of this type is used in areas where security is paramount and access is by nature limited (this isn't the sort of lock that is used on a bathroom or kitchen; this is more ideal for private areas not meant to normally be seen by many others. We carry the most important brands of Mortise Deadlock, including the following:
Modern Lock Systems: High-Tech Security Solutions
In recent years, locks have moved whole generations in design. Not only are newer lock systems often more secure than key systems (using a variety of verification methods, they are also cheaper to replace than older key systems.
Keycard Systems: a keycard system is based around electronic and magnetic locks that can be accessed through the tap of a card, as opposed to the use of a physical key. Not only can they be programmed to have different access levels, they can also be easily programmed for new users, as well as changed in the case users need to be removed from the system. Along with older technology, keycard systems can add whole new levels to security and access that are simply unparalleled.
Keypad Systems: keypad systems are relatively similar to keycards in that they are programmable on multiple levels, but use codes to open doors that are entered on pinpads instead of a key card system. Keypad systems are popular in conjunction with keycard systems because even if a potential troublemaker has one, he will probably have trouble gaining both.
Fingerprint and Retina Scans
Fingerprint and Retina Scan Systems: The ultimate in total security, these systems are designed to ensure that no one gets in without authenticating their very existence. These are high-enough security devices to be used with high-level government and private-sector offices.
Mobile Phone App Compatible Systems
Mobile Phone App Compatible Systems: Electronic lock systems can often be used with WiFi to not only give the owner an accurate picture of who is where in a house or business but can also alert owners if there is a security breach. Police can usually be called remotely to the scene and then our emergency locksmith service can survey the breach and repair it.
The best part about electronic security systems is that technology prices continue to bring down the price of newer device locks to where they are even competitive with standard lock systems!
