No, this post is not about secure online payment or protecting your wallet at the local market. (;-) Its about considering battery back-up options when looking to purchase an electronic safe. Not all safes include a back up power supply. Without surge protection on safes that require power to run from a 110 volt outlet, there is a high chance that internal components on the motherboard will be affected. As replacing these electronice parts is a trade specific skill you would trust only to a locksmith, the cost of doing so will be much greater than if you had invested in a battery back up from the start. Just something to consider when "safe shopping."
To protect the internal components of a commercial grade safe like this one, make sure to purchase an external battery back-up/surge protector...
I've been called to commercial worksites lately where doors are allowed to become totally insecure. A simple thing to do is what we refer to as a "slam test." This shows us whether the latch is falling into the strike and making the door insecure. If you are noticing that the high use doors of your home, apartment or business are not latching properly, it is worth giving us a call. Often times there are repairs or adjustments that a locksmith can do that will prevent having to replace the door or hardware, ultimately saving you time and money. Replacing hardware shouldn't be the only option. Quality service means being offered options. A professionally trained locksmith will know hardware intricately and how to adjust it, not just how to replace it...something worth asking when you are on the search for locksmith services in your area.
If the deadlatch falls into the strike/plunger then the latch is able to be fished back, like a spring latch. This compromises the security of an exterior door.
