Frozen Locks! What To Do-

snow-1813463_1920.jpg

Nothing is more frustrating than going to start your car in the morning only to realize that your door locks are frozen shut, or arriving home in the evening to find your front door iced over and inaccessible.

lighter-1245660_1920-horz

Your Vehicle

If You Are Home
  • Heat the Key
Grab a lighter and use it to heat up your key. Once your key is warm, stick it in the lock. If your lock is extremely frozen, you might have to heat up your key a few times. However, the lighter trick should work every time.
  • Use a Hair Dryer
  • Lock De-Icer
Stock up on a few cans of de-icer during the winter months for situations like this. Spraying de-icer directly into the lock will quickly melt any ice around it.
Don’t try to chip away any ice covering the lock because you could damage the lock in the process, leaving you with one more problem to solve.
auto-2540170_1920
A Tip for Frozen Doors
You can prevent your door from freezing shut by spraying the door frame with spray cooking lubricant like Pam. You can also try an alcohol-based hand sanitizer to open a frozen lock. Hand sanitizers work because the alcohol in them melts the ice that has made the lock seize up. Simply pour it on the key and wiggle the key in and out of the lock to loosen it up.
icicles-1547333923CKc
Your Home
These tips will work on you entry doors also, although you may not be prepared to be locked out. Having a properly fitted storm door should prevent this from occurring.
When you need help and don’t know what to do, or don’t want to risk damaging the lock, Carl Jarl Group is your local Locksmith ready to help.
Our locksmiths are trained extensively in the locksmith field and have years of professional experience. We use the highest quality locksmith tools available, so you’ll get the best possible service. After all, your security is important to you – and it deserves the utmost care and respect.

Latest Technology

Make sure that your locksmith company is utilizing the latest and greatest security technology in order to ensure your business is fully protected.
Install and Repair Locks
At times, lock replacement is the only viable option to ensure the security of your property. If one or more of your door locks have been damaged it’s time to invest in new locks. If your home or business requires increased security, replacement is your only option. After years of locking and unlocking the security level of a lock is naturally compromised due to normal wear and tear and continued usage.

Locksmith Scams

2scam2.JPG

Locksmith scams are carried out by call centers all across the country. They operate by manipulating Google Maps listings and paying large sums of money to advertise with AdWords. This allows them to capture the attention of panicked, locked-out people and dispatch unqualified subcontractors to their locations.
2scam9.JPG
Beware
Phony addresses, and toll-free phone numbers. Beware! The overwhelming majority of locksmiths with an 800 phone number are not legitimate.Typically, you’re connected to a call center. You may be quoted a price as low as “$25 to come out plus labor, and labor starts at about $10 for a basic lock”. The “locksmith” arrives in a van with no logo or markings with a scam in mind.

If there is any doubt, then there is no doubt at all – that means that if one or another company seem to be suspicious, for any reason (their real location, their estimated time of arrival, or anything else), it’s better to avoid dealing with them.

  • No 800 numbers. Many scam locksmiths gain work through a 1-800 number that goes to a call center. Low estimates for the work are given and the locksmith is sent out. The locksmith does not work for this company, but generally pays for the referrals and works on his or her own.
  • Check with the BBB. When you find a company check them out with the BBB before you call. Look for companies that are BBB accredited.
  • Listen for a company name. Local, reputable locksmiths will answer their phone with a company name that can be crosschecked with the Better Business Bureau and online review sites. Make sure you hear it when you call.
  • Look for the logo. Make sure the locksmith arrives in a van or truck with the company logo and is dressed in clothing with the logo.
  • Get a written estimate and a receipt.
  • Don’t allow extra services. If the locksmith cannot get a door open call another locksmith. Do not let him or her replace the lock.

Locked Out of My Car in Omaha

auto2

When you are locked out of your car, you desperately need the service of a locksmith. One of Carl Jarl Group’s most frequent service calls is auto lock outs or to replace lost car keys. Losing your car keys or getting locked out can be an extremely stressful situation filled with panic and frustration, but it doesn’t always have to be that way.  It is important to have locksmith information on hand BEFORE you need it. The overwhelming majority of calls to locksmiths are made under emergency conditions. Customers are often placed in victim-like situations, often late at night and are easy prey to untrustworthy locksmiths.

Common Types of Automotive Keys
  • Transponder Keys – These car keys contain a computer microchip in it’s handle that enforces ignition security and prevents key fraud. Transponder keys can be mechanically or laser cut depending on what the make and model of the vehicle is.
A transponder chip disarms a vehicle immobiliser when the car key is used to start the engine. The majority of keys to cars built after 1995 contain transponder chip
  • Smart Keys – These car keys use computer microchips as well as sensors to open cars without the use of a traditional key. All that’s necessary is to have the keys on your person and your car will automatically unlock and start as you approach it closely.
 
A transponder chip disarms a vehicle immobiliser when the car key is used to start the engine. The majority of keys to cars built after 1995 contain transponder chips.
When the car key is turned in the ignition, the engine control unit (ECU) on the car sends an electronic message to the key, and it will allow the car to start only provided it receives the correct message back. So, even for a simple car key without any buttons, the key must be cut correctly to turn the locks, and also programmed correctly to disarm the immobiliser. Car keys with chips can be programmed using special programmers.
ransponder keys are different from automotive remotes that are used to unlock and lock your vehicle; some transponder keys are built inside of your keys (in a component called remote key heads) while others are placed separately.

If you want to copy your transponder key, carl Jarl Group’s Locksmiths can use specialized equipment to clone an existing key for your vehicle. Some car brands don’t require specialized equipment to program keys and they can be programmed with an OBP (on-board programming) process by the vehicle’s owners – all they need to have is the instructions included in the car manual as well as two existing, pre-programmed, not copied keys.

A proximity key is a small fob that allows for a keyless entry and ignition system. The fob communicates via radio waves with your car to lock and unlock doors and start the engine when within the acceptable range.

Have a Safe Holiday Season

lockup.jpg

The Holiday Season is time of opportunity to burglarize your home for cash, credit cards, and all the new gifts of small electronics, computers, jewelry, and easily sold valuables.
The FBI reports “nearly 400,000 burglaries occur during November and December alone.”
1.6 million reported residential burglaries. About 300,000 of those were home invasions, which means one or more household members were present at the time of a break-in, and became victims in violent crimes.

Security Systems.

locks security.JPG

Install a home security system and turn it on when you leave. 20 percent of homeowners with an alarm system who were surveyed don’t activate it during the day, even though that’s when most thefts occur.

A standard home security alarm is often a good fit for most households. These systems generally include sensors on all the entry doors, some motion activated outdoor lighting, sensors on windows that are particularly easy to access, and, most importantly, a direct link to a monitoring service. This type of security alarm system will be an excellent deterrent for any would be intruders, and is fairly easy for a family to adapt to.
