Five Lehigh Valley Winter Driving Rules

If you live in the Lehigh Valley, you already know that snowy and icy roads are simply a part of the winter season.

So, what are the best rules of driving in the snow in the Lehigh Valley? Let’s take a look.

1. Learn to do donuts in a parking lot

This is the time of year where many teenagers get to learn how to drive by heading out with their dad, mom, older brother, older sister, or friend by taking a trip to the closest parking lot covered in snow! Empty parking lots full of snow are simply the best place to learn how to drive on snow. You can always do sweet slides by using your e-brake as well!

2. Stay off Route 22 and Route 78

It’s snowing? Well, it’s time to not even think about taking Route 22 or Route 78. While you can be the best driver of all time, many other drivers are not. Many drivers drive too fast for snow conditions, continue to tailgate too closely, and many times end up in accidents that stop traffic. Take your time driving and find an alternative route if possible.

3. Shovel out your parking spot, but don’t expect to keep it

If you shovel out a parking spot on a public street, is that your spot for when you return? The ages old debate continues to this day. Many people in the Lehigh Valley shovel out their parking spot and put lawn chairs or some other small object in the spot to discourage anyone else from parking in that spot. This is technically illegal, but that doesn’t stop many people from doing it. If you decide to put a chair in your spot, expect it to be moved and don’t retaliate if it is!

4. Make Sure Your Car is Serviced

Now is the best time to get your car to your local service station to make sure that it’s ready for the winter weather. Don’t wait until you’re stuck on the side of the road.

5. Don’t Drive

Some days it just isn’t worth it to drive. No matter how important your job is, it’s not more important than the job of first responders who need roads to be clear of traffic if they need to help someone. If you don’t need to drive in the snow, don’t.

Be sure to contact 24/7 Emergency Locksmith for all of your lockout and locksmith needs!

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 Help Your Friend With a Key Problem

We all have one of those friend who misplaces their keys at least once a day. Or perhaps you are that friend. You know how annoying it to constantly wait for your buddy to search the entire apartment looking for their keys, but there is nothing you can do about it, or is there?

Your friend locks themselves out of the house and car regularly, they lose their keys on a daily basis, and they have more spare keys hidden in places they don’t remember than anyone should have. It is time to help them out. Put an end to their key problems with a few simple solutions.

The Obnoxious Keychain

Giving your friend a huge, fuzzy, flashing, or noisy keychain is a great way to help them keep track of their keys. They will have trouble losing their keys when there is a giant ball of fluff connected to them. These are easy to find nowadays, many young women think they are cute and fun and attach them to their keys and purses. Or maybe they are just trying to keep track of their own keys.

Design a Designated Place

While reorganizing your friend’s home may be a little over the top, you can create a spot that they can stash their keys daily — somewhere right by the door so that they can drop their keys in the new spot right when they walk through the door. Make it a game if your have to so that they feel more required to participate.

Attach Their Keys to Something

If your friend carries a purse of a backpack, figure out a way to attach the keys to it, even when they are in the ignition of their car. This way, when they turn their car off and remove the keys, they will grab the backpack and the keys will come with. Plus, if they know where their bag is, they know where their keys are.

Be Their Key Keeper

If you are always with your friend, just hold onto their keys for them. This won’t help them get better at keeping track of their keys, but it will lessen the frustration.

Program 24/7 Emergency Locksmith Into Their Phone

While you may not be able to help your friend with their bad key habits, 24/7 Emergency Locksmith can. We can make copies of keys, help them when they are locked out, and assist in any other lock and key problems. Putting our number in their phone can save them a lot of worry and hassle in the future!

Things to Never Leave the House Without

As you rush to get to work every morning, you may go through a mental checklist to make sure you have everything you need before heading out — your phone, wallet, keys, lunch, work badge, and whatever else you need on a daily basis. But what would it mean to leave any of these important items at home? While we certainly could live without most of the important items we use on a daily basis, our day would become a lot more difficult, especially since we are used to convenience.

The Phone

Our cell phones have become more than just a way to communicate with others. They are now a constant source of entertainment, helping us get through the day and awkward situations. Forgetting your phone at home certainly won’t kill you, but it may make you feel naked. Like you are missing something of great value. The only true problem would arise when in an emergency. You can make it a day without sending your best friend cat memes, but when you are in an emergency, with no one around to help, you will be wishing you didn’t leave your phone. Think about a time you may have been hiking or out in the wilderness and you got a flat tire, or your car wouldn’t start, or you locked your keys in the car. You wouldn’t have a phone to call a tow truck or 24/7 Emergency Locksmith, and they would leave you stranded.

The Wallet

Your wallet is another thing you can probably live a day without, but you would probably run into a couple of problems. Unless you have a secret stash of money in your car or office, you will have no source of money. This could pose a problem when trying to buy gas, coffee, lunch, or anything else. You also wouldn’t have other important items like your ID, which would definitely be needed for a drink after work of if you get pulled over on the way home, which we hope never happens.

The Keys

Okay, if you leave the house without the keys, we would hope you would turn around right away to retrieve them. But if your friend is driving you to work, you take a cab, or you are able to walk, you may not even notice that you left your keys until you are trying to get back into your home later that night, only to find you are locked out. In this situation, let’s hope you didn’t forget your phone as well, because you can easily call 24/7 Emergency Locksmith and have someone come to your house in no time to let you back into your home.

These are a few of the most important things to remember when you leave the house, but if you forget your keys, we can help with any other locksmith issues. Contact us today for help!

The History of Locksmiths

There are many things that we have nowadays that we did not always have available to us. Things like phones, motor vehicles, laptops, and other items that make life more convenient. But one thing that people did have back in ancient Egypt and Babylon, were locks and keys. Locks were used for the same reason they are today, to keep possessions and goods safe from thieves.

The First Locks

The first locks were wooden with large wooden keys. According to History Cooperative, this early lock and key method was adopted by ancient Greece, Rome, China, and more. Wealthy Romans would use locks and wear the key as a ring, keeping it close and showing status.

Metal Locks

Then the metal locks started showing up. In about 900 AD, the first metal locks were made of iron or brass and soon spread through Europe. Between the 14th and 17th centuries, locksmithing had become a profession and they were beginning to get crafty with their metal work. Locksmiths would work on locks and keys with special and beautiful designs for nobility. These intricate locks were often designed to resemble royal symbols and crests.

In the 18th century, locksmiths began making more locks and keys that were more durable and secure, improving the technology right along with the aesthetics. It was during the industrial revolution, when locks and keys finally saw improved complexity.

Robert Barron perfected the lever tumbler lock, this was a sophisticated lock that was more secure and was better at keeping intruders out. This type of lock requires the lever to be lifted to a specific height, not too high and not too low. This lock structure is still used today.

In 1817 Jeremiah Chubb designed a lock that was difficult to pick and would actually show signs that it had been tampered with. Chubb and his brother started a locksmithing business and designed locks that were even better. They invented the lock that used six levers rather than four. They also created the disc that went around the keyhole to keep pickers from seeing the levers inside.

Locks Today

Another few lock designs were created and used and in 1848, Linus Yale created the modern version of the double-acting tumbler lock that we still use today. This design used different length pins, which will stop locks from opening without the correct key.

While locks have improved majorly throughout the centuries, locksmiths will never be out of a job. Many locksmiths work their own business, doing residential and car locksmith tasks. They have the ability to fix our locks, make us new keys, and unlock our homes and cars if we ever get locked out. Many people take locksmiths for granted, until we need them. Luckily, you will always be able to find the help you need. At 24/7 Emergency Locksmith, we can help you with your car and home lock issues. Contact us today, we will be there to help!

Signs You Need To Replace Your Locks

Just like everything else in your home, your locks will get old and break down eventually. And just like everything else, you will want to fix it before that happens. Getting locked out of your home is a nightmare. Getting locked out of your home in the middle of winter is even worse. Making sure this doesn’t happen—start by checking out your locks and door knobs and making sure they are aging well.

But how are you supposed to know when your locks and knobs are going to stop working? In this blog we will give you some clues to look out for! In case you ever do get locked out of your home, or have any other issues with your home’s locks and door knobs, you can trust 24/7 Emergency Locksmith to help! We can take care of any and all of your locksmith needs! Even if you are locked out of your home, it will only be for a short amount of time. Our team will get to you quickly and make sure you are inside in no time!

Read on to learn more about the signs your locks and door knobs may be slowly dying.


While many old metal items will become rusty with constant exposure to water, your locks shouldn’t be one of them. If you notice rust building up around and on your locks and door knobs, it may be time to change them out for new ones. Rust on the door knob or lock may be a sign that there is also rust building up in the lock itself, making it difficult to unlock and lock your door. Rust is one sign that you need a replacement.

Keys Get Stuck

Keys give us issues sometimes, and that is understandable, but when you have to wiggle and jiggle your keys in the lock to get the door unlocked, you know you have an actual problem. This could result in your key breaking off in the lock or the lock no longer working.

Stick Door Knob

Even if the key turns in the lock with ease, the door knob may be sticky. If you turn the knob and it feels like it is sticking, it is time to replace your locks and door knobs. Again, you never know when this will fail and being locked out of your home is never fun.

These are a few of the signs to pay attention to. If you notice any of these things, you should get your locks and door knobs replaced. Get a professional’s opinion by contacting 24/7 Emergency Locksmith.

Tips To Get Your Car Unstuck From the Snow from 24/7 Emergency Locksmith

No matter how much salt you put down or how early you get out to shovel, some days you’re just going to get your car stuck in the snow.

Having a few ideas of how to get your car unstuck from the snow can go a long way to getting you back on your way much faster.

DON’T SPIN YOUR TIRES: This is the first mistake many people make and one done sometimes out of the sheer frustration of being stuck. If your tires aren’t in contact with the road at all, spinning your wheels is just going to get you more stuck.

GET LOW AND ROCK OUT: After you’ve done at least some bit of shoveling, get in the car and get into your lowest gear. Attempt to start “rocking” the car by driving ahead a little bit and then heading in reverse. The forward or backward momentum may be enough to push you over the hump and back on the road.

TURN THE WHEELS: If rocking doesn’t work at first, turn your wheels from side to side a few times and try again.

STILL STUCK?: If you’re still stuck, more shoveling may be needed and perhaps the strength of a friend or two to turn that forward or backward momentum via a push over the hump.

STAY PATIENT: The most important thing is to realize that you’re most likely not the only one stuck and it usually takes some time to get out in the first place.

If you’re stuck because you’re experiencing a lockout, CALL US at (484) 891-1922 for 24/7 EMERGENCY SERVICE!
