What do Locksmiths do in NY?

Most people know what a locksmith is and at least have some idea as to what they do. Often we may think of them as the people who come to our rescue when we’ve locked ourselves out of our homes or cars. But many locksmiths do much more than that. A highly skilled locksmith can in fact perform a wide variety of tasks related to security.

Most locksmiths can repair broken locks, or re-key those that have worn, and of course can install new locks on pretty much anything that requires one. Many are trained in fire and safety regulations and know which locks can be used in what areas in order to comply with local law. Some are capable of changing the combination on a safe. Nearly all should fully understand how most locking mechanisms work and be able to explain them to you in a manner you can understand if you are not technically oriented. They should also be able to disable a lock with relative ease. The exception to this would be high end security locks which may take some amount of specialized training before being able to do. Some can offer consulting services for those looking for specialized locking devices that require a higher level of security, such as keycards with identifiable information loaded on to them. Many can also build locks from scratch, complete with matching keys. It is certainly a far more specialized profession than many people may think.

There are some locksmiths who do only deal in “picking” of locks, such as those who may come to your rescue when you are stuck outside of your car. These types are not necessarily bad at their profession, but may simply not care to delve extremely deep in to it. The need for locksmiths who can simply open a door for you is high, so these types generally have no shortage of work available to them.

Learning to become a locksmith takes a good deal of time and patience. One way to learn is to apprentice under a highly skilled locksmith, preferably a master locksmith. These people often have to pass written and practical use tests before being able to call themselves master locksmiths. However, they are also regarded as the best of the best, knowing how to handle a huge array of lock types, in particular highly technical ones, such as electronic and other sensitive, extremely secure devices. They often work in settings that deal in sensitive or classified materials, so it is also their duty to remain discreet and silent about some of the places that they perform their services.

So as you can see, locksmiths are more than just the people who come to bail you out in a lock-out emergency. They are often the people responsible for keeping you and your goods safe as well.
