Locks are designed to keep your home, business, and belongings secure. However, lock problems can cause frustration and worry if you don’t know how to solve them.
This video discusses some of the most common problems you may experience with your locks. If you are having trouble opening the lock using a new key, your key may not be properly cut. Check to see whether old keys work—if not, you may need to address corrosion inside the mechanism using a silicone or graphite spray. You can also remove the doorknob to inspect the locking mechanism for damage or wear.

A home safe provides an excellent solution for storing valuables or keeping items such as firearms safely out of reach. When choosing the right safe for your home, there are a number of factors you should consider. Safes are available in a variety of sizes, styles, and materials to suit your unique security needs.
Home safes are manufactured in a variety of sizes, ranging from very small to very large. Although safes do increase in price as they increase in size, purchasing a safe that is too small for your needs is not a wise investment. Smaller safes are ideal for storing papers, photos, and small pieces of jewelry. A larger safe may be necessary if you want to store heirlooms, memorabilia, or firearms. Keep in mind that the size of your safe may also limit its placement options when finding the best location for it in your home.
It’s best to store safes well out of sight, such as beneath beds or at the back of closets. This will prevent your safe from being easily found in the event of a break-in. Some safes can be bolted into the floor of your home to prevent them from being picked up and carried away. If you want to purchase this type of safe, make sure you place it in an area of your home where you can drill into the floor without affecting its structure or aesthetics.
Safes are fabricated to protect the items within from a variety of dangers, such as fire, flood, and unwanted access. While some safes provide only one type of protection, many safes combine protection options to keep items safe from water, fire, and intrusion. It’s important to choose a safe that will provide adequate protection for your belongings based upon your needs.
If you’re considering a safe for your home or business, contact Armstrong Lock & Security, Inc. at (407) 434-0181. We offer a variety of lock, safe, and security monitoring solutions for commercial and residential customers in Orlando. Visit our website for more security information and tips.

When someone asks what three items you would take with you if you were to be stranded on a desert island for an indefinite period of time, it may not difficult for you to choose your laptop, a pocket knife, and your toothbrush. When confronted with the question of what items you would store in your home safe, you should take a different tack. Instead of thinking about your favorite items or what you need to survive, you should think about the items you own that are irreplaceable or could cause a great deal of trouble if they got into the wrong hands. Items that every homeowners should consider keeping in his or her safe include:
Passports and Birth Certificates
Passports, birth certificates, Social Security cards, and other important identification documents are best kept in a home safe. It is still a good idea to make copies of these documents and store them in a bank safe deposit box or other secure location, but by keeping them in a fire-rated safe in your home you can ensure that they are well protected and that you will have access to them whenever you need them.
If disaster strikes and you need your property insurance details to file a claim, you do not want to have to wait several hours until you are able to retrieve the information you need. Keep a copy of your property insurance and your insurance agent’s contact information in your safe so that you can retrieve them at a moment’s notice. It is a good idea to keep copies of other insurance policies you have in your safe as well.
If you have guns, you should store them in a designated gun safe. This will keep them out of the hands of children and others who are unauthorized to use them. Gun safes are larger than most safes and have special holding facilities for guns and ammunition.
In the world of home security, an effective safe is as good as gold. If you live in the Orlando area and would like to have a high-security, fire-rated safe installed in your home, call Armstrong Lock & Security, Inc. at (407) 434-0181. We carry and install safes made by the most reputable manufacturers, including Gardall.

Depository safes come in handy for any number of applications, the majority of which are retail or commercial. There are a number of depository safe options, and your budget and intended uses should help you narrow them down to determine which one is right for you.
Most depository safes have either a slot in the lid or a roll-top that allows you and others with access to the safe area to drop cash or papers inside without having to open the safe. Neither type of depository safe permits those dropping off cash or documents from extracting anything that is already inside without the code or key to the safe.
At Armstrong Lock & Security, Inc., we have more than 80 years of experience working with safes. We stock and install only the finest, most impenetrable safes available. To arrange to have a depository safe installed at your Orlando Business, call (407) 434-0181 or visit our website.
