Non-Destructive Gain Entry: What Is It?
If you find yourself in a "lock out situation", when an emergency locksmith arrives at your door, they should always start by investigating ways to get back into property without damaging either lock or door. This is called Non-Destructive Entry and it takes special training for them because there are different techniques involved with this process which can sometimes be tricky if done incorrectly.
When it comes to opening a locked door, there are several different methods that you can use depending on the type of lock. For example: Yale locks usually require us with picking tools and bump keys in order for them be opened easily. Night latches typically need manual persuasion while mortice locks may take more time since we need some hands-on work before getting our success rate up!
The first thing to know about locks is that there's no one-size fits all solution. Locking systems can be very complicated, with many different types and ages of lock requiring various approaches for success; this means it would be misleading (and dangerous!) if we say drilling your way out will never work because sometimes nothing else does either!
Mortice locks are the most difficult and therefore if any lock needs drilling it will be one of these. With this said if a locksmith does need to drill a lock, they will leave your lock and door looking as good as, if not better than it did when they arrived.
For those who need emergency entry and want to be safe, it is worth checking if the locksmith will at least attempt Non-Destructive Entry techniques. You can do this by looking up their company website for mention of ‘Non-Destructive’ or reading reviews on Google about them before calling them so that you know what kind service, they offer in addition to quality workmanship!
At the end of day, sometimes drilling out old locks to replace them with brand new ones really is your best option. If you have lost keys or worry, they might be in someone else's possession- this will keep those people from accessing things where they don't belong! With this said no one should be forced to pay an unnecessary bill, so do your research make sure you have chosen a reliable local locksmith with good reviews then you can be sure you are in safe hands.
