Beyond Lockouts

Applying our expertise to make you more secure

As the primary safeguards of your home, business, and valuables, locks provide the first line of defense against unwanted entry. Their proper operation is important to the security of your family, belongings, business resources, and peace of mind. But like any mechanism with moving parts, a lock sustains wear and tear over time and requires occasional maintenance, repair, and upgrade to remain effective.

When it comes to lock services such as these, your safety and security are Unlockit’s top priority. Our friendly, reliable specialists have the experience and know-how to ensure that all your locks are strong and fully operational, and provide a full slate of services to address any lock-related needs.

We’ll even perform a free assessment of your property’s strengths and weaknesses and offer professional tips on how to best use locks to make you more secure.

Re-keying Locks

Re-keying is the process of replacing the tumblers or pins of a lock cylinder with new ones of different sizes. Upon completion, a new key is required to operate the lock. If the lock functions well and matches the style you like, then re-keying is the best solution.

This service saves money and time by eliminating the need to buy and install a new deadbolt or door knob lock. Locks should be re-keyed when first moving into a property or when a set of keys is lost.

Installation

Unlockit technicians carry a wide assortment of locks and finishes for new lock installations and replacements, including deadbolts and door knobs. We also offer a full line of additional hardware options to ensure that the locks we provide match your preferences. We only work with trusted products and brands and guarantee that each job is done right with a follow-up call to make sure you are satisfied with our service.

Maintenance & Repair

Over time, normal wear and tear takes a toll on doors and locks. Occasionally the components fall out of synch, and a lock begins to malfunction.

Sometimes, a quick fix is all you need to restore proper operation – tightening a few screws or lubricating the right areas will often do the trick. Other times, doors must be adjusted or hardware re-aligned due to a house settling or temperature changes.

In any case, we always do our best to repair a non-functional or damaged lock, rather than replace it with a new one. Our technicians will walk you through the process and explain any problems that arise. Whatever the issue, we’ll be sure to find the right solution.

Key Extraction

Broken key extraction

Keys can get stuck or break off in locks for a variety of reasons. The lock may be faulty and in need of repair, or the key may be damaged or suffering from normal wear and tear. No matter the cause, we’ll remove the broken key, identify the problem, and bring the lock back to a working condition.

Key Duplication

Key machines inside our van

Every Unlockit technician is equipped with a mobile key-cutting machine, which travels with him or her throughout Metro Atlanta. When the job calls for it, key duplication is always available. We also offer this service at our shop in Roswell, so feel free to stop by and we’ll make you a low-cost, high-quality duplicate.

High Security Locks

High security, restricted keys
If you are looking for high security locks, we have one of the best locks on the market. High security locks are more resistant against picking, impressioning, bumping and drilling. Most high security locks are also UL listed which means they have passed stringent testing requirements, some of which include that:

  1. All working parts of the lock are constructed of corrosion-resistant materials, such as: brass, bronze, stainless steel, or have a corrosion-resistant protective finish.
  2. All locks have passed an attack test that includes 10 minutes of picking, 10 minutes of key impressioning, 5 minutes of forcing, 5 minutes of drilling, 5 minutes of sawing, 5 minutes of prying, 5 minutes of pulling, and 5 minutes of driving.

One of the most important features that a high security lock offers is key control. Key control (or restricted key) means that an unauthorized person will not be able to copy your key without your permission, giving you more security.
