Continuous lockouts may seem beyond belief but it does happen. Lock-outs can happen for a number of reasons and not just because a person has lost their keys. It might be that the door slams shut in the wind or maybe you’re getting the post and someone calls you, so you shut the door to go and chat without thinking.
The “out of the normal routine” is the most common type of lock out, it happens all the time.
Key safes are an excellent solution as you can store a key and only need to remember a code number.
They are also a perfect solution where different people need access to properties but you don’t want to give them a key permanently. These are commonly used by short term renters or holiday cottages as the key can be left with the property with no need for the owners or managers to have to constantly attend the property when there is little or no need.
However, they are just as good for the elderly, or any other home especially if you currently leave a key with neighbours or relatives as this could cause unfortunate rifts in relationships should the key be lost or the fact that the one time you need the spare the person with it is not available.
If this is something that has happened to you or your family, then you know how annoying it can be so why not consider a key-safe.
They are strong, durable and depending on the size can hold up to around 6 large keys (manufacturer depending). They are secured to a solid wall by a number of fixing points and the code can be changed as and when the need arises
Owl Locksmiths and security recently went out to Coverack, not to do some yomping, scuba diving or kayaking which we love, but to fit a key safe to one of our customer’s properties that they rent out for a couple of months every year. We made sure that the box was not visible from the road by passers-by and with it fixed to the outer solid brick wall, it was far safer and more convenient than the usual mat or flower pot.
We can fit these key safes in around 30 minutes and when finished there is no mess and as for all of the products we supply come with a minimum 1 year guarantee and it is far more cost effective than calling a locksmith out to get you back in.
