Security Aspects to Consider while Moving House

  • The first is the patented lock and key. They always carry some kind of legal protection, which means that no one can duplicate it or make any kind of copies without the knowledge of the owner.
  • The second kind of key is the restricted key. This lock and key system has special features which makes it difficult to open without its own set of keys and nor is it possible to make another set because of its unique and exclusive mechanism.

It is advisable to consult the experts before you choose a lock as you might unwittingly choose a mechanism that would be too difficult for the next occupants to function.

Sherman Oaks locksmiths would be able to guide you through the security issues and also check whether they are installed correctly and if you are using them the right way.
