At Fallbrook Local Locksmith, we love what we do! The nature of our business keeps things new and interesting every day. And we get to meet a lot of great people in our Fallbrook community!
In our many years of experience in the locksmith industry, we’ve pretty much seen it all. Most situations involving broken locks and non-functioning safes are pretty straightforward for our experienced, knowledgeable locksmiths. However, some locks are especially complex, requiring our locksmiths to summon all of that experience and knowledge in order to solve the problem at hand.
In a recent emergency call, we went to the home of Larry S. in Fallbrook, where we were presented with a 15-year-old safe that had stopped opening. The electronic lock had failed, and the combination would no longer respond. Normally, a broken safe wouldn’t be an emergency situation, but in this case, the safe’s owner was storing his medication in the safe and needed to get in as soon as possible.
Our locksmith got to work, but when all of his normal troubleshooting efforts didn’t work, he contacted the safe’s manufacturer. The manufacturer’s technician gave our locksmith “drilling points” that would allow him to access the mechanism that would open the safe so it could then be repaired.
Following the manufacturer’s instructions exactly, our locksmith drilled for several hours, and went through multiple drill bits. At that point, he determined the manufacturer’s instructions were not going to work. Our locksmith decided it was time to switch tactics, and using his experience and intuition, he was able to get into the safe within 45 minutes!
He was then able to replace the locking mechanism and get the safe back in working order. This was a large safe, and it would have been very expensive to replace. So by repairing the existing safe, we were able to save the owner a lot of money. Not to mention the fact that we were able to give him access to his medication again.
We can’t speak for other Fallbrook locksmiths, but we can imagine that many locksmiths would have given up on trying to open the safe when it got difficult and told the owner to just buy a new safe. At Fallbrook Local Locksmith, because we are locally owned and operated, our customers are also our neighbors, and we treat them as such. We do whatever we can to help them out in tough situations, and do it in the most cost-effective way possible.
