Business Hours

Mon-Sun: 6:30am-10pm

We’re Here for you 24/7 in the Lehigh Valley

While a locksmith is a great way to have a home or office lock professionally serviced, those times are usually previously determined, scheduled, and generally well planned out. However, there is another aspect of a locksmith that might arguably be more important… at least to the person who is calling.

No one locks themselves out on purpose, and the panic that sets in knowing that you’re stranded without your keys can be stressful. Perhaps you left your keys at work when your coworker drove you home. Maybe you went out for a jog only to discover your spare key somehow wiggled out of your pocket.

Whatever the reason, we’re here to provide fast and prompt service for those less than desirable times when you find yourself without a way to get into your home or vehicle. So call us the next time you need help, and we’ll be there quickly to assist you… and if you accidentally locked yourself outside in your pajamas chasing the cat that got out, we won’t judge!

Call us at (484) 891-1922.

Why it’s a good idea to change the locks of your new home

If you find yourself the proud owner of a new home, there are lots of exciting (and perhaps daunting) tasks that you have ahead of you.

While we’re sure you’re excited to start painting and reconfiguring the backyard, there’s a big step that you should consider before almost anything else, and that’s to change and update the locks of your new abode.

Firstly, and probably most obviously, you just don’t know who has a copy of a key from a previous owner. To be absolutely 100% sure that your home is only accessible to those who have your permission, you just have to press the reset button in terms of those locks.

Secondly, you have no idea how the locks were treated. Were they ever serviced or maintained? How long has the back door been sticking when you try to turn the deadbolt? Even minor annoyances can quickly transform into major problems. Do you really want to sour your new home joy with an unexpected lock issue?

Lastly, you have a chance to update and modernize your home security in a way that works best for you. There are a variety of modern locks that just work better. Plus, being able to choose a beautiful new front door lock is a great first step into customizing your home into something that is unique to you!

So if you are ready to start the updating process to your new home’s locks, give us a call!

Door Lock Problems You Shouldn’t Ignore

While we all have quirks to our homes, especially if your home is older, some of those “quirks” are actually potentially serious problems you shouldn’t just overlook.

In terms of security, your doors and their locks should be in working order regardless of age. If there are any issues, however minor they may seem, it’s best to have them assessed by a professional to assure those ‘cute’ little annoyances don’t turn into big (and expensive) repairs. Here are a few of the big issues you should be aware of.

Misaligned Door Latch:

If the strike plate and the door just don’t want to cooperate, just remember they weren’t always that way. At one point they closed perfectly. If you need to push and pull to get your door to close, it means the once aligned parts have now shifted.

Door Distortion:

Over time the weather can make a door change its shape. While it might look minor to you, it can do a real number on the locking mechanism that now how to work extra hard on the misalignment and can cause some rough and unusual wear on the latch.

Key Doesn’t Work Properly:

Whether your key just spins in the lock or you’ve got to use some force to get it to work, a lock and key that don’t just work correctly means there are major issues either with the key, the lock, or both. By continuing to force a lock to finally open, you’re just damaging the interior parts, and the key itself, making it work less and less every time.

Deadbolt Doesn’t Engage Fully:

If your deadbolt just barely locks the door, it’s just not doing its job. There are a number of reasons it could be doing this. Regardless of why, having a half-working deadbolt can seriously compromise the security of your home.

Faulty Mechanisms:

Sometimes, doors and their hardware just get old, stop working properly, and you can’t figure out what is going on. If you’re looking at your door latch and scratching your head in frustration, you’re not alone. There are just so many types of locks and latches out there.

So if you find yourself with a door issue, give us a call and we’ll be glad to get those doors and locks back in working order.

How to Avoid a Locksmith Scam in the Lehigh Valley

The need for a locksmith can be an unwelcome and/or irritating situation. From locking yourself out of your car, losing the keys to your office building, or simply changing the locks to your new home, the moments that it takes to call a locksmith can be stressful enough as it is, and can be done in a time of panic, worry, or stress.

But when that time arises, there are some people who will try to scam your hard earned money at a when you’re most vulnerable and perhaps don’t have the best knowledge of what is going on.

Here are a few tips to avoid being scammed by a faux locksmith:

1. Find a locksmith ahead of time. The BBB and other reliable sources like Yelp and Facebook reviews can assure you that you have a real company to call if you find yourself in trouble. Just save the contact in your phone and you’ll have the info available immediately.
Avoid companies that don’t answer the phone with a specific business name. If someone just says the phrase “locksmith services” or something to that affect but won’t give an actual company name, chances are they’re not legitimate.

2. Ask for ID and written proof of a company with a name, address, and other items like website, telephone number, and even a company email. Also be aware of what the person arrives in. Most companies have a van or vehicle with the company name and logo displayed on it.

3. If it isn’t an immediate matter, get an estimate on legitimate company letterhead paper or from a company email. An email that is @gmail, @yahoo, @aol etc. is a big red flag. This estimate should include not just the lock cost, but also mileage and other additional charges that may be included in the final cost.

4. While PA doesn’t, there are 14 states that require locksmiths to be licensed. Those states are: Alabama, California, Connecticut, Illinois, Louisiana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. Maryland hasn’t yet implemented it yet, although they have now adopted this law. So if you are in one of these states, ask for that too.

5. If they say the lock needs to be drilled, especially if they have given little to no effort to open the lock prior, go with someone else. Not only does a professional locksmith know how to open almost any lock, but drilling is much more expensive and damaging to the surrounding frame of the lock.

How to Fix Your Key Fob

In the world of technology, it is easy to take things for granted. Take your key fob for example. This keyless remote can help you get in your car, open your trunk, and may even start your car with ease. When you key fob stops working for one reason or another, you suddenly realise how much easier this little remote made your life.

Now you are stuck unlocking your car with the actual key, struggling to get it turned just right. You can no longer start your car from a distance and allow it to warm up a bit as you check out in the store. Once your key fob stops working, it becomes a very important part of your life.

There are many reasons why your key fob may stop working, whether it is because the signal is lost, the battery is dead, or the remote is just old and worn out. Luckily, you can fix your key fob by yourself if need be, or you can hire a professional from 24/7 Emergency Locksmith to help you get your key fob working again and you on your way.

If you want to attempt to fix your fob yourself, we will give you some tips to help make the process easier for you. Before you start taking apart your key fob, you will want to make sure you key fob is actually the problem. If you have an extra key fob, check to see if it works. If it does, the original fob is the issue, but if not, it could be an electrical or mechanical problem with the door locks. Once you know that the fob is the issue, continue to the next steps.

Change the Battery

Your key fob problems may be as simple as changing the battery. Try swapping the old battery for a new and seeing if the fob will work. If an old battery was the problem, than the fix was easy and you can carry on with your day! If not, you may want to try something else to fix the issue.

Reprogramming Your Fob

Try reprogramming your key. To do this you will follow these steps:

  1. Get in your car with the fob and key and shut the door.
  2. Turn your key to the on position but don’t actually start your car, press the lock button on the fob, and then turn the car back off.
  3. Repeat three times. On the last cycle, leave your car in the on position.
  4. Wait for the locks to sound and press the lock button again.
  5. Turn the key to the off position to end the programming.

This is just one method to reprogram your key fob. If this does not work for you, feel free to give 24/7 Emergency Locksmith a call. We can get your remote reprogrammed or get you a new fob and program it for you. Contact us today and get your key fob working again!
