Abloy High Security Keys and Locks
Abloy was developed in 1907 by Emil Henrckson, an office machinery mechanic in Helsinki Finland. Abloy key cylinders are virtually pick proof, sometimes compared to a bank vaults locking mechanism.
Abloy Protec Elite has 1.97 billion possible key combinations. No wear on the keys or the cylinders.
Prevent Mail and Identity Theft
Private group type mail boxes found in a strata, condo, apartment and even commercial property have become an easy target for mail theft because they are relatively insecure and once opened the thief has access to multiple mail boxes. The mail is then sold to organized crime and used for identity theft, fraudulent credit cards, fake ID etc.
A lady told me about a stolen government cheque that had been modified from $76.00 to read $760.00. This cheque was even cashed at a well known bank, several months later the RCMP arrived at the door investigating her fraudulent cheque. It often takes several months for these crimes to surface making it very difficult, if not impossible to solve.
Bell Locksmith of Maple Ridge BC has developed a series of security kits to fit most private group boxes. Locksmith designed industry approved Bell Locksmith kits stop mail theft. Laing's Lock and Key Service is pleased to be a Vancouver Island distributor for the Bell Locksmith security kits. Call today for a quote.
Remember: LIFE SAFETY ALWAYS OVERRIDES SECURITY.
I am often asked to rekey or install double cylinder deadbolts or add secondary locking devices on the main entry / exit doors.
Often trying to keep our children safe or a senior from wandering we put them in harms way by adding a secondary chain or locking device they can not reach or do not understand.
In an emergency everyone should be able to get out. Even an adult can not always reach a secondary locking device mounted high on a door after a fall or stroke, in a fire it can be hundreds of degrees only a few feet off the floor.
