Broken Keys

Most keys will eventually wear out and break along any of the key's main cuts. Some conditions may speed up the deterioration of a key though. The key will be more prone to breaking if there is one or more deep cuts, these are weak points in the key. After a long time of use and some abuse, a key will break at one of these points. Deep cuts next to the head of the key will weaken it the same as multiple deep cuts in the center of the key blade.
The key could also be made of light-weight material that may not be suited for long-term use. This is usually the case with aluminum keys. They tend to break at deep cuts sooner than other materials. Usually when a key is about to break you will notice one or more tiny cracks. Check your keys periodically, especially the ones you depend on every day. If you see tiny cracks on your keys it is best to go to a professional locksmith and have a new key cut.

If you have a broken key, contact Safehouse Locksmith is a professional NYC locksmith that services the whole New York metro area.

Locksmith Queens

A recent investigation by an ABC affiliate in Texas exposed many local locksmiths that were overcharging customers. They placed hidden cameras and contacted 13 different locksmiths to come and open a car for a victim who locked her keys inside. Many of these companies claimed that the costs start at $25. The problem is that fees are usually compounded in addition to all of the other fees.

If you have been locked out of your vehicle, Safehouse Locksmith is a professional locksmith in Queens. All of our locksmiths are familiar with the area and can get to your home or vehicle in no time. Since we employ all of our own locksmiths, you do not have to worry about  inflated prices. That is common with subcontracted locksmiths that may try to get a bigger cut.

Most vehicles can easily be opened by the same tool. It should not take a locksmith very long to open a car. Safehouse Locksmith is not only honest but provides a service guarantee with every one of our services.

If you would like more information on any of the locksmith services that our Queens locksmiths provide, contact Safehouse Locksmith.

Safe Winter Auto Tips

Safehouse Locksmith wants you to be safe and happy with your car during these winter months, so we have compiled a list of tips to prevent any problems.

  • Have a qualified auto mechanic check the condition of your car's cooling, charging and exhaust systems. These frigid temperatures can only exacerbate any faulty parts of these systems. Your car's battery can lose up to 30% of its power when the temperature hits freezing, and 60% if it goes below zero.
  • Installing new windshield wipers can make a world of difference if you are caught in a snowfall. Worn out wipers will not sufficiently keep your windshield clear and make visibility a problem. Check that your wiper fluid is full too, because the higher quality fluids will not freeze as easily.
  • Remember that all-wheel-drive doesn't mean you are any safer. During snow storms and icy conditions an all-wheel-drive is meant to get your car going, but won't improve your stopping. Slow down and leave extra space.
  • Keep a winter kit in your car. If you do experience a breakdown, emergency response times may be slower in these conditions. It is always a good idea to keep a flashlight, warm gloves, warm clothes, nonperishable snacks, a small shovel and a bag of kitty litter in your car. Always keep a cellphone car charger in your car.
  • Clear snow from your tailpipe before starting your car. You may want to warm your car up before venturing on a trip, but if your tailpipe is blocked by snow carbon monoxide will build up in the car's interior. Clear the roof as well, since this is a ticketable offense.

If you find yourself locked out of your car, call Safehouse Locksmith. We are a car locksmith in Queens that offers 24/7 emergency services.

Ridgewood NY Thefts

 An investigation led to the arrest of a Ridgewood man on January 9th in connection with several Ridgewood and Glendale robberies. According to the the Queens District Attorney's office, the man allegedly broke into apartments in the neighborhoods on three separate occasions. The first incident took place on Dec. 17th when a resident arrived home expecting a package that UPS confirmed delivering. The 27-inch computer monitor was missing and the victim reported it stolen two days later after not finding the package. Based on information during the course of the investigation, police determined that the thief had stolen the monitor and brought it to a pawshop in Bushwick where he sold it for cash. The police were able to recover the monitor and return it to the victim.
Property theft has been on the rise, due to the amount of packages people are ordering through the internet. If no one is home, the delivery service will usually leave the package at the front door. It has become a growing concern for homeowners to ensure their packages safety from outside threats. Companies like Safehouse Locksmith, a Ridgewood NY locksmith, have seen an increasing interest from customers in improving their home security.
