In the mind of a locksmith

Despite some of the bad reviews about a locksmith, there are some really great locksmith companies.  Through consulting with a variety of different locksmith companies there is a simple word that could be used to describe one.  They are individuals who have a brilliant intelligence who can pick out clues from the customer calling whether or not they have the right to get into the locked space that they are trying to open.

This happens more times than not that criminals will call a locksmith and say that they are trying to get into a safe but have lost the keys.  In a scenario like this one, the locksmith needs to use their knowledge about criminal activities.  There have been reported cases where a divorced couple once owned a safe together when they were still married.  After getting a divorce the wife was not satisfied with the results of the divorce and was going to try for herself to get what she thought she deserved.  She called a 24 hour locksmith company and claimed that she needed to get into her safe.

When the locksmith employee arrived at the location he evaluated the situation and realized that something different was going on there.  The woman was alone in her house and she seemed very distraught about the situation.  Through the tone of her voice he could tell that this was a case where she was trying to get into a safe that she did not have legal rights to get into.

The locksmith then requested that she provide documentation that this was indeed her safe.  This is when he knew he could not unlock the safe for her.  The woman refused to provide him the requested documentation and became very angry with the locksmith.

There was another encounter that was called into a locksmith indicating that they were locked out of their house and lost their keys to get back in.  Upon arrival of the locksmith, they were approached by two men who acted suspicious.  The locksmith provided the two men with identification so that they knew who has arrived at the house.

The locksmith evaluates the situation to determine why they are locked out of the house.  If they are able to identify that there is a deadbolt on the door they can come to a conclusion that this is a case where someone has purposely changed the locks on their house.  This could be for a variety of reasons.  One of the most common reasons is a domestic violence case where a restraining order has been placed on an individual.

A lot of fine details go into the work of a locksmith.  There are clues given on nearly every site that allow the locksmith to determine if they are being hoaxed into unlocking an item that may not belong to them.  There are times when a locksmith will receive calls stating that they are in need of an emergency locksmith.  These types of calls can be a situation where a child is locked in a car and the outside temperatures are very warm.
