your options in safes for your family

Do you have somewhere in your home to keep your valuables and important documents safe? If not, now is the time to look into getting a safe. I never thought that I needed to have a safe in my home, but since we had a fairly serious fire, my opinion has changed. Unfortunately, the fire had damaged the part of my home that I store all of my important paperwork. This caused me a great deal of work that I really didn't have the time to do since I was working to repair the damage to my home. Since that time, I have had two fireproof safes installed in my home and you would never even know that they are there. Learn about the different options in safes that you have to decide what would be best for your family.

Locked Out? 3 Things You Should Never Do While Waiting For A Locksmith

If you've ever locked yourself out of your car, you know the feeling of sheer panic and adrenaline that follows a lockout all too well. Will you be late for work? What about the groceries—are they going to spoil? There are ton of questions and worst-case scenarios to consider when you lock yourself out of your car, especially if your pet or child is still inside the car. It can all be a bit overwhelming, which could cause you to make some simple mistakes that you'll regret later. Following are three things you should never ever do while waiting for a locksmith. 

Don't Poke

Do not stick anything -- foreign object, broken key or otherwise -- into your door locks. If you try to open your door with something other than your key, it can break off in the lock, which will make it harder and more time consuming for the locksmith to unlock your car for you. Similarly, never glue a broken key back together and try to use it. The bond created by the glue will probably not be strong enough, and there is a huge possibility that your key will break off in the lock. 

Don't Pry

Never try to enter your car by prying up your door handle, popping the lock or jamming something down into the side of your door to try to trigger the lock. If you use a screwdriver, pry-bar or other type of tool to try to force your way into your car, you will cause a great deal of expensive damage. It's better to patiently wait for the locksmith to arrive on scene. What's more, if you do too much damage, you might make it more difficult for the locksmith to open your car for you. 

Don't Panic

If your pet or child is in the car, do not panic. Do not try to break glass windows as flying glass and debris can injure the precious life that's trapped inside your car. If the outdoor temperature is moderate and your car is parked in the shade, you don't have to worry so much about the car becoming too hot within a short amount of time. Simply monitor your pet or child while trying to keep them calm. If the locksmith will be too long in arriving, call 911 to help get your loved one out of the car.

The key to making a lockout less stressful is to remain calm and simply wait for help to arrive. Do not make any rash decisions that you will regret later. For more information, contact a company like The Lock Shop.
