Why the Hidden Spare Key Is a Poor Option

Hiding a spare key under a flower pot or doormat may seem like a good idea. It’s a capital idea for burglars, who know to look for hidden keys; plus, some thieves today use high-definition surveillance cameras to stake out a neighborhood. They’ll hit the easiest targets.

And lost or forgotten keys aren’t the only reason for lockouts.

  • Your key may be damaged.
  • The lock may be broken.
  • The lock may be electronic, and you’ve lost your fob or forgotten the entry code.

Whatever the emergency, we can get you into your home, business, or car fast and safely.

More on Our Lockout Services

Emergency lockout services: Our technicians are available 24/7 for emergency lockouts.

Lock rekeying: We can make a new key for an existing lock without replacing the entire unit. We do this by changing a lock’s internal mechanism, which is much cheaper than installing a new lock set. Rekeying is critical if you’ve lost your keys or someone with a key has moved out, and you want to block that person’s access. It also safeguards against unauthorized duplicates.

Lock repair & replacement: If the lock is worth repairing, we’ll fix it on-site. If not, we’ll replace it with a quality lock that meets your standards and security needs.

New lock installation: We install locks for residential and commercial properties. This includes deadbolts, mortise locks, high-security cylinders, and electronic keyless entry systems. For commercial properties, we’ll create a master key system to control access.

High-security lock installation: We install various high-security locks, such as Medeco and Mul-T-Lock cylinders. They offer superior protection against picking, drilling, and other forced entry methods.

Safe & vault service: We can open any safe or vault without damaging it, even if you’ve lost or forgotten your combination. We also repair old safes and restore their original security. And if you need to replace your combination lock with an electronic keypad lock, we can do that, too.

Key duplication & programming: Key cutting and key copying are simple tasks we handle on-site for most homes and businesses. But some cars require programming for a new key to work. We do this at our shop and not on-site.

Access control: With motorized locks or keypad-activated locks, you can limit access to areas of your property to authorized personnel only. This makes sense for business owners who want to keep their data secure and employees safe.

Safe Ways to Avoid House Lockouts

House lockouts are stressful and inconvenient, but you can take steps to prevent them.

  • Cut spare keys and always keep them on hand for emergencies.
  • Check your locks periodically for faulty mechanisms. Repair, rekey, or change the locks if necessary.
  • Provide a spare key to someone you trust, like a family member or close friend.
  • Have our 24/7 emergency locksmith’s number stored on your phone for quick access in an emergency.
  • Upgrade your home to keyless entry.

What Not to Do If You’re Locked Out of Your Home

  • Never try to break into or jimmy the lock yourself. You might damage the lock beyond repair and injure yourself in the process.
  • Never call an uncertified locksmith. The person who helps should be qualified and professional.
  • Never hide a spare key under the doormat or flower pot. Burglars know to look there first.
  • Never give someone access to your home without proper vetting. Balport takes safety seriously and only employs certified, licensed locksmiths with clean backgrounds.
