Locksmith Work in Forest Hills, Queens
Enjoy Flat Rates at Frog Lock A new client who was referred to us by an old client wanted to have the locks of her apartment changed. The client had just bought the apartment but she wanted the keys changed since she did not have information about the previous users and did not know who else had keys to the apartment. The client explained to us how busy her schedule was and that it was necessary we get her a single key that could open all the doors in the apartment. She explained that she liked our services because a friend had told her of our efficiency and our flat-rate we charge all our clients. After studying the apartments and the locks, we realized that the locks were in very good condition. We realized that it would be costly to try to change all the locks. We decided to rekey the locks to allow us to give the client a single key to use in opening all the locks. We changed the tumbler and the wafer configuration of the locks so as to enable the new key we had cut to open all the doors of the apartment. Rekeying process The types of locks that were on most of the doors could not allow us to rekey them by simply adjusting the tumbler. We had to remove each tumbler in all the locks. After we were through with the exercise, we scrambled all the tumblers and interchanged the bits that could allow us to achieve the desired results. We matched the different configuration because our objective was to end up with a single key which could open all the doors on the apartment as required by our client. We carried out a few combinations after which we tested the key to be sure that it met the client’s specifications. After we were satisfied with the results, we handed over the keys to the lady. She was thankful and paid us.
