MUL-T-LOCK Household

Project Description

Type of Building:   House

At times, we receive calls from proud owners of new homes, who are not satisfied with the simple generic key systems that some contractors install. One such Abbotsford customer was interested in retaining their standard hardware while increasing security, with a relatively low budget.

The Solution

After examining the lock on the door, we found that it was at least 15 years old, worn, and outdated. Advancements in locking bolt technology and high security keying systems can prevent potential break-ins, even by the more sophisticated thief. We recommended an installation of a Mul-T-Lock grade one deadbolt with a patented locking bolt.

The bolt locks into the door frame, preventing the thief from kicking in the door or prying it open. The customer was delighted to have upgraded their home security situation for less than $400, and grateful for the peace of mind in knowing that the new lock hardware would secure their home and belongings, even in the suite’s higher-risk location.

Older Condo Lock Solution

Project Description

Type of Building: Condo

We are regularly called out by local residents, to perform rekeying work. In one specific case, a customer made this request, their condo suite being situated near a stairwell. Our security professional informed the resident that these suites tend to represent a higher risk for break-ins, due to the opportunity for an easier getaway down the nearby stairwell.

The Solution

Our solution was to replace the cylinders only, with our Mul-T-Lock high security key system. These keys are restricted, and can only be cut by the owner, with signing authority (we retain this information on file at our shop).

The lock cylinders are also designed to prevent picking or ‘bumping’, a relatively new break-in strategy. The locks are also designed with a quick rekey system which the owner can use in case of an emergency, if a key is lost or stolen.

As a result of this quick intervention, the customer was able to retain the look of the original hardware and increase the security of the locks at a fraction of the price of replacing all of the hardware.
