Residential locksmith services: how we keep you safe
At 24 Boston Locksmith, we offer residential locksmith services for both houses and apartments. These services run from simple lock changes to installing high tech smart locks and top-of- the-line high security locks. We re-key, cut new keys, and repair locks, doors and window latches. Our expert technicians also provide comprehensive security consultations to evaluate the safety of your home and find ways to improve it.
We will also help you with the cleaning and maintenance that your locks need. Many people don't realize how important this is, but regular maintenance is essential for making sure your locks last and that they remain in good condition. The temperature often drops suddenly during those harsh New England winters, and when it does, brass locking mechanisms are prone to break. This can leave you stuck outside, or render your lock useless. Proper cleaning and lubrication will prevent this! It's easy to do yourself once you get the hang of it, and our locksmiths can show you how.

How safe is your home? Tips from our locksmiths
Protecting your home from burglars and other trespassers is easier than you might think. However, it takes some action on your part. Common sense is your most valuable weapon, but as we all know, it isn't so common! Follow these tips from experienced Boston locksmiths and you can cut to a minimum your risk of suffering a home burglary.
- Only qualified professional locksmiths should be trusted to fix your locks. Don't try to cut corners by hiring a simple handyman, or some guy with a toolbox who claims he knows something about locksmith work! This is a complicated, highly specialized craft that requires years of training, and your personal safety is at stake.
- Use high security locks with duplicate-resistant keys. The average burglar can pick a standard lock in minutes, and the keys for these locks are easy to copy without any permission or proof of ownership. Certified high security locks might cost a bit more but they're worth it in the long run. Always lock your door when you go out, even if you're just stepping out for a few minutes. A lot can happen in that time! Plus, it's good to be in the habit.
- Proper maintenance of your locks, as mentioned earlier, is very important. It's just as important that you take good care of all your door hardware, like the hinges and the doorknob.
- Be careful about your windows too. Keep them securely latched, and if you're on the ground floor or near a fire escape, put a protective metal grille in front of them.
- Installing a home security system dramatically reduces your risk of burglary. There are many available now that are cheap and easy to use, and some that are even designed especially for apartment renters.
Of course, the single best move you can make is to consult a professional residential locksmith, someone who knows the in's and out's of home security from the big picture down to the smallest detail. That's what we're here for! Call 24 Boston Locksmith today for more information!
