Kansas City LOCK INSTALLATIONS AND UPGRADES
Call upon our nationally renowned locksmiths when you need new locks installed for your home or business!
Most people want to ensure that their homes and businesses are properly secured, but they don't look at the most obvious security issue when it comes to said locations: are the locks on the home or business out of date? Are they old, or broken? Most importantly, who has the keys? Many older locks have keys that have been copied dozens of times, thus creating a security risk. Making sure that you have the best security possible means it's time to start exploring new locks and security systems for your home or business. With a new and professionally installed security system, you can feel safe in your home as well as confident that your business interests are secure. Security is often one of the most overlooked aspects of daily life, so is that really the smartest way to protect your home or business? Instead, take a moment to consider a few things.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO CHANGE THE LOCKS?
Whether you are a home or business owner, unless you built your property from the ground up, chances are high that there was a previous owner. Most people simply hand over the keys to the next tenant or owner, and the keys never get changed. In such a case, there is a strong possibility that the keys were copied. There's a possibility that in fact there could be dozens, if not hundreds of keys milling about that could open the doors to your home or business. It's very possible no one actually knows how many copies of a set of keys there are. And that's only one of the many situations where one should consider installing a new set of locks for their home or business. Others examples include:
- 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
- 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- When your locks are simply old, outdated or damaged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

LOCK REPLACEMENT SERVICES
We Do Both Home and Office Lock Installation
The first step to updating your locks is to call our offices so that we can do an initial security inspection. We take into account variables such as style, possible weak points in security, and finally, the individual budget for the work. Although we work so competitively that our prices are the lowest that you can find anywhere in the country, we also have a number of different options for people and businesses who don't have the latest advances in security planned out in their budget. Often a good solid deadbolt and quality modern alarm system will do the job just fine.
While many people will see security as simply heading down to the hardware store and buying a deadbolt on sale, this is never a good idea. In the first place, you have to know how to install a lock properly. In the second, you have to know which lock will fit which door. And if you don't install the lock properly it may not function as it's supposed to, thus providing diminished protection for the place it was installed. Because we have the experience and the know-how, our professional locksmiths can make sure your home or business is secure instead of hastily cobbled 'do it yourself' solutions.
We Do Car Lock Installations
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?
Industry Standard: The Deadbolt
The deadbolt lock is probably the first lock anyone thinks of when they think 'home security'. A lock that bolts into the door with the turn of a knob and opens with a key, most people assume a deadbolt is the only door lock out there (it isn't) but it is popular because it works so well. We stock a full supply of deadbolts from the best companies to obtain them from, including:
- Master Lock

While similar to deadbolt locks, Mortise Deadlocks add an additional layer of security by providing security on both sides of the door. If someone manages to pry a door open enough or get their hand around the knob of a deadbolt lock, they can get through. By contrast, a Mortise Deadlock system requires a key on both sides of the door, meaning that one cannot open the door on either side without a key. Because of their design they also usually use stronger mechanisms in the door and the frame, meaning that they usually also last longer than the standard deadbolt mechanism. We use the top brands for Mortise Deadlock systems in the industry, such as:
Modern Lock Systems: High-Tech Security Solutions
While most homes and businesses can do fine with the average electronic security system and a combination of the locks above, the technology for modern locks is light years ahead of older, physical key systems. Depending on the level of security your home or business needs, some modern lock systems might be exactly what you are looking for.
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. Besudes being very programmable (meaning room to room security) they are trackable (meaning you know where everyone in the building is) and reprogrammable (so ex-employees can't steal key cards and try to get back in.)
Keypad Systems: keypad systems work very similarly to keycards, but have the advantage of not even having cards but codes. Smart businesses will often double up security by ensuring that users have keycards and codes.
Fingerprint and Retina Scans
Fingerprint and Retina Scan Systems: We see them in big offices, and we see them in movies, and now they're here: facial (eye) scans and fingerprints are showing up on phones and other devices: don't your home or your business deserve the same security?
Mobile Phone App Compatible Systems
Mobile Phone App Compatible Systems: With the power of the mobile app, owners can actually see who is coming in and going out, as well as see if someone has breached security defenses remotely. Thankfully these apps also have a way to call the police if something goes wrong-- and give you a chance to call our locksmiths to find out how to beef up the weak link in the chain.
As technology continues to drop in price, the cost of these amazing systems continues to drop and are now reaching cost parity with traditional lock systems.
