Locksmith Waterloo Locks Safety Tips

We are regularly called out to new construction projects or remodels towards the end of construction as the user is taking over their new space. This is a time of transition where the small things on a job are often overlooked and become noticed. We recommend working with us in advance to save you money by doing it right the first time.

Here are some mistakes, examples and ways to avoid them.

  • Incompatible key ways
  • Incompatible hardware
  • Ignoring user function and access
  • Purchasing pre-packed master key systems

Incompatible key ways are the most common mistakes. When an existing building uses one type of cylinders and the contractor installs another type of cylinders, the client ends up purchasing locks twice. Avoid this problem by having the contractor or locksmith check that the new cylinders match the existing ones.

Another common mistake we see is installing different manufactures hardware. This can cause incompatible keyways, additional hardware to have on hand for maintenance and additional keys. Avoid this problem by having the contractor or locksmith spec the hardware to match the existing one.

Ignoring user function or access happens when a hardware is installed on a storage door, but it should serve an office door. Avoid this issue by discussing the function and use type for each door.

Purchasing Pre-Packed Master Key Systems issue is mostly found among multiple building complexes. The contractor orders a master key system from the factory with the hardware, per building. But if it is a six-building apartment complex the end user has six master keys to carry that are not compatible instead of one. Avoid this problem by consulting ahead of time with the locksmith and user groups to customize master key system to their specific needs.

These are some of the common mistakes that we find when we are called in to setup a master key system for the final users as they take possession and they are not happy to have to pay for items twice. The simple solution is to consult with us, your locksmith, at the beginning, during and for the final transition of occupying the space.

Ideally, we can order the right hardware and cylinders to match your existing system. Then only pin the cylinders to the master key or user needs – once.
