Overland Park LOCK INSTALLATIONS AND UPGRADES
Call upon our nationally renowned locksmiths when you need new locks installed for your home or business!
Installing a quality solid door lock is the first step to keeping your home or office properly secured. Old locks are often the weakest point in any security setup, as they can be rusted, too many previous users may have had access to keys, or other issues. Making sure that your keys are yours and are up to date is the most important part of maintaining your security. Too many homeowners and businesses forget about security in their planning, putting all of their investments at risk. Perfect security is nearly an impossible goal, but through both planning smartly and making sure to properly assess risk, you can be at ease, without having to worry about leaving your home or business alone when you choose to spend time apart from it. But everything begins with the obvious. Are your door locks secure, or is it time to replace them?
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO CHANGE THE LOCKS?
For both residences and businesses, in general, security is inherited, meaning that all the security weaknesses are also inherited with the next tenant of a location. In general you don't know how many people have access to your keys, and ultimately how many people have access to your home or business right now. There's a good possibility that an ex-spouse of a previous tenant or disgruntled former employee of a previous business has access to your location right now. And that means security risks that you don't need. In fact there are a number of potential problem spots:
- As part of your home or office renovations
- When your locks are simply old, outdated or damaged
- Divorce, death, or a new tenant
- Moving to a new home
- If your vehicle was broken into and a copy of the keys were taken
- Your keys are lost or stolen
- After a break-in that damages your lock
- When your previous employee 'forgets' to return the office keys
- When you have to relocate to a new office
- A roommate moved out but retained possession of the keys
- When you need to upgrade your security system
We are here for you when it is time for you to upgrade your security with a wide range of security options for your home or your business (even your vehicle!)
LOCK REPLACEMENT SERVICES
We Do Both Home and Office Lock Installation
The first step to updating your locks is to call our offices so that we can do an initial security inspection. We take into account variables such as style, possible weak points in security, and finally, the individual budget for the work. Although we work so competitively that our prices are the lowest that you can find anywhere in the country, we also have a number of different options for people and businesses who don't have the latest advances in security planned out in their budget. Often a good solid deadbolt and quality modern alarm system will do the job just fine.
What this doesn't mean is to run off to the local hardware store and just buy the cheapest deadbolt. Different doors work best with certain types of deadbolts, and unless you are experienced in installing locks, it is best to call in a professional to do the installation so that the door is locked properly. The biggest weaknesses in home and business security are often the result of user error, and often a poorly or incorrectly installed lock can be the cause of a break-in or security breach later. Instead of dealing with the danger and risk of doing it incorrectly, call on our professional, certified locksmiths today to install your lock correctly.

WHAT TYPE OF LOCKS DO WE SERVICE?
Everyone knows the good old fashioned deadbolt. The standard for homes and businesses for over 100 years, the deadbolt works attached to both the door and the wall. On one side, a knob releases the lock; on the other, a key can be used to take the place of the knob. While newer technologies may offer more security, for most homes and many businesses, the traditional deadbolt lock is more than enough to ward off any potential wrongdoers. we service and install a wide variety of deadbolt locks, especially the following:
- Master Lock

The Next Level: The Mortise Deadlocks
While similar to deadbolt locks, Mortise Deadlocks add an additional layer of security by providing security on both sides of the door. If someone manages to pry a door open enough or get their hand around the knob of a deadbolt lock, they can get through. By contrast, a Mortise Deadlock system requires a key on both sides of the door, meaning that one cannot open the door on either side without a key. Because of their design they also usually use stronger mechanisms in the door and the frame, meaning that they usually also last longer than the standard deadbolt mechanism. We use the top brands for Mortise Deadlock systems in the industry, such as:
Modern Lock Systems: High-Tech Security Solutions
In recent years, locks have moved whole generations in design. Not only are newer lock systems often more secure than key systems (using a variety of verification methods, they are also cheaper to replace than older key systems.
Keycard Systems: a keycard system is based around electronic and magnetic locks that can be accessed through the tap of a card, as opposed to the use of a physical key. Not only can they be programmed to have different access levels, they can also be easily programmed for new users, as well as changed in the case users need to be removed from the system. Along with older technology, keycard systems can add whole new levels to security and access that are simply unparalleled.
Keypad systems, like keycards, can be used to limit access to certain users. However, a keycard is not even necessary-- all that is needed is a programmed code for the user to get through. (They can also be used in conjunction with keycards for added security.)
Fingerprint and Retina Scans
Fingerprint and Retina Scan Systems: We see them in big offices, and we see them in movies, and now they're here: facial (eye) scans and fingerprints are showing up on phones and other devices: don't your home or your business deserve the same security?
Mobile Phone App Compatible Systems
Mobile Phone App Compatible Systems: With the power of the mobile app, owners can actually see who is coming in and going out, as well as see if someone has breached security defenses remotely. Thankfully these apps also have a way to call the police if something goes wrong-- and give you a chance to call our locksmiths to find out how to beef up the weak link in the chain.
As technology continues to drop in price, the cost of these amazing systems continues to drop and are now reaching cost parity with traditional lock systems.
