We're too often encounter New Yorkers who try to do it them selves, kudos, good on ya!  More often than not they end up calling us in frustration after they've tried to tackle the lock project and failed miserably.

The common way in which we find the average person is in hives on the floor in the fiddle position when all lock parts and screws are on the floor in a pile of mess.

It's very important to know and acknowledge our own limitations, installing a lock or repairing an ignition switch on your car ( or programing a vehicle key for that matter ) isn't exactly brain surgery, nonetheless you need an extensive knowledge of the system you're working on, not to mention the right set of tools and some technical competency.

Let's face it, you probably wouldn't try and solve your own medical issue, or diagnose and fix your electrical issues by googling it, or by watching a youtube "expert" take on the subject with a short "do it yourself" tutorial.

So why do you try and solve your security and locksmith problems on your own ?

Call a professional, certified and licensed locksmith who will get the job done right the first time every time with the peace of mind of a warranted job ( parts and labor should both be included in the warranty ).

At Metro NYC Locksmith we'll always do the job for less and make sure it's done right and for a fair price.

I'm a skydiver amongst other things ( yes, I jump out of a perfectly good airplane ) and I only pack my own main canopy ( parachute ), I'm neither certified nor have the knowledge and ability to pack and inspect my reserve parachute, the reserve canopy may be inspected and packed by a certified professional rigger only.


(main canopy).

In the same way that I trust my rigger ( with my life Wepa ) to get the job done for me, you should trust your local locksmith (Follow us on Yelp.) professional to get the job done for you and solve your security problems.

Let us be your local New York City locksmiths, I promise, you won't regret it.

As a locksmith in New York City, I get asked a specific question a lot - "is my lock safe enough?"

Well, most of the time the answer is "NO!"

Some people ask for a demonstration of skill in which I immediately show them how long it would take me to unlock their door by picking the lock or by a shimmy with a credit card, a bottle of water or my personal favorite, a subway card.

New Yorkers are always shocked at how easy and how quickly it was to pick the lock, but some folks just have to see with their own eyes (New Yorkers always have doubts they'll never just take your word for it).

l (1)

Yep, it's that easy!

Always surprised, the customers ask me which lock is the best.

I always recommend the type of lock I've got on my door -  a Mul-T-Lock. It is simply the best lock in the market today.

I wouldn't try and sell an expensive lock to our costumers just because it's expensive.  In this company, we sell locks that are on our apartment doors and on our business doors because we would only use the best. Period!

So don't get hacked for fake knockoffs of high security brands and always demand Mul-T-Lock.

Some of the Top Service Pointers For Customers Seeking A Safe Locksmith NYC:

Are Safes A Thing of the Past?

Some might consider safes as antiquated relics best appreciated as movie props in an old movie Western bank heist scene, but business owners and home owners are increasingly realizing the very valuable utility of safe hardware in helping to secure business assets on-site at the office or work site or personal possessions at home.

A safe locksmith NYC can help you make great product choices from a wide variety of the most modern up to date and technologically advanced safe offerings out there.

 Deciding What to Do With an Old Safe: 

Home or business owners moving into an office or home location that was previously occupied sometimes encounter pre-existing on-site hardware such as safes. The decision sometimes becomes whether an older safe can be useful by staying on-site or if it needs to be removed, sold or scrapped. Finding a reliable and reputable safe locksmith NYC is a smart choice in helping you as a business or home owner decide what best to do with hardware on-site that you’ve ‘inherited.”


Reprogramming of Electronic Lock Safes:

A professional safe locksmith NYC will be able to help you get an electronic safe back into service if a lock is malfunction or the code information has been lost or compromised.  Unlike older safes that rely on pre-set and calibrated tumbler systems (the combination they are made with is what you are stuck with), many models of electronic safe locks offer the owners the option to have a safe locksmith NYC reprogram them for a continued, long life of service, no matter what the situation.

Deciding Where to Put a Safe Is Important:

Home and business owners alike often choose to have their safes located in a secreted or disguised (at the very least non-obvious) location in order to add an extra level of security and hindrance to would-be burglars.  A professional and reliable safe locksmith NYC can provide on-site consultation services to professional assess any architectural space in order to make the best choice that balances secrecy along with the utility needs of access and ease of use.

AAA Announces Surprisingly High Statistic On Number of Stranded Drivers to be Rescued During the Holidays. Large Number of Drivers expected to be in “Lost Car Key No Spare” Situations:

With the summer holiday driving season now in full swing since Mother’s Day and Memorial Day and leading into the upcoming Father’s Day and the July 4th holiday weekends, AAA expects they will help some 10 million stranded motorists over the summer season. Even more surprising is that AAA expects a large number (almost 100,000) of motorists will require assistance due to having a “lost car key no spare” situation on their hands. In addition to helping these drivers dealing with such a “self-inflicted” problem as key loss, the motor club will be helping thousands with battery replacements, flat tires, and on the spot jump starting emergencies and towing assistance ranging from stalled or stopped vehicles to after-accident car removal. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day (used as the traditional beginning and ending markers of the Summer driving season), AAA expects it will aid nearly 10 million car owners.



Some Common Sense - The Biggest Headaches Are the Most Easily Avoided:

Perhaps the most frustrating of all of the types of roadside headaches that are expected to afflict summer motorists are the types of problems resulting from the direct negligence of the driver’s themselves.   Most prevalently, these scenarios related directly to poor maintenance upkeep habits on the part of car owners who are undertaking long trips with inadequately maintained vehicles. “Whether traveling or near home, the best way to avoid your vehicle leaving you stranded is with a little preventative maintenance,” said John Nielsen, AAA director of auto repair and buying services. “Taking care of your vehicle now can not only prevent the hassle of a breakdown, but also can cost far less than a major repair that might be needed if vehicle upkeep is ignored.”   That being said, the most easily avoided type of summer road hassle (lost car keys) can be proactively remedied by keeping better care of your car keys and in being sure to maintain a spare key so that you can avoid being in a “lost car key no spare” emergency.
