There’s nothing quite like the sinking feeling of knowing you locked the keys in the car, especially when you have a lot of things to do. Don’t feel alone, it’s something that we have seen a lot as a Long Island Locksmith .  

Still, it shouldn’t be a problem, should it? You see it in movies all the time, it takes a pro just a few minutes to unlock the door and drive off with the car, even when they have to hot wire it. And, in real life, it is also that simple - if you know how to break into a car or are willing to smash a window.  

How hard can it be? You just need to get something into the car and jiggle open the lock. In theory, all you need is some wire that is pliable enough to snake through the window and catch the lock. In practice, it’s actually easier to try and open the door a little and work the lock from the side.

Either way, you risk damaging the locking mechanism or scratching the car up. That is why it is best to either get someone to bring the spare keys or call in a car key locksmith long island . Leave breaking into your car to the professionals, they can do it faster and a lot more efficiently.

When it comes to storing your valuables, or important documents, nothing quite beats a safe for security. Simply close and lock the safe as normal and your items are safe behind strengthened steel walls.  

All of which is great, unless you forget the combination or lose the key, or the batteries run out on a digital safe. Depending on the type of safe you have, there are few things that you might want to try.  

If these simple tricks do not work, or you have a more complex safe, you will need to call in your Long Island locksmith to help you crack the safe with minimal damage.

It’s not so much the stuff that they steal – that can be replaced – but more that they have rifled through your private things. It’s a scary experience, even if you were away from home at the time. And, if you are at home when they break in, the situation can escalate pretty quickly.  

But how do you protect yourself? How do you make sure that you and your family stay safe?
