A locksmith company with more than 30 years of experience in Minneapolis, Minnesota has announced helpful tips for consumers for dealing with cold weather. The company states that when it gets cold, people have difficulty with locks, particularly with car locks. They state that they have put together a helpful list of tips that will assist consumers when their car locks are frozen or otherwise not working properly.
Edward Mann, a representative for the company says, “Cold temperatures can be a real pain when they affect car door locks. Moisture inside the lock can freeze if temperatures drop low enough. This renders it impossible for a key to turn the lock or even for a remote door opener to function properly.”
The company states that they have years of experience in helping people who have locked themselves out of their vehicles by doing car open ups. They state that this is important, particularly during the colder winter months when temperatures in Minnesota can often reach negative 20 degrees or colder with windchills.
Mann continues, “Believe it or not, a small bottle of alcohol-based hand sanitizer is all that is needed to open a frozen lock. Hand sanitizers work because the alcohol in them melts the ice that has made the lock seize up. Simply pour it on the key and wiggle the key in and out of the lock for a moment to loosen it up.”
The locksmith states that if and when this does not work, customers can contact the company for assistance in getting those doors open. The company first opened their doors in 1985 and state that they have been serving the Minneapolis area since with services that range from vehicle to building lockouts. They can re-key locks and install or repair locks or keys to help customers to get their homes, offices, or vehicles open and get in out of the cold.
In addition to assisting with lockouts, the company also provides a range of other services including replacement keys, installation of door and security hardware and services that assist with opening or repairing safes. Mann says that over their three decades in service, they have seen a number of lock issues and have handled every one with the same dedication to quality service and professionalism that they exhibited on their very first job. He states that this is just one reason that customers have relied on them for three decades of service.
Fast Eddys Keys Express serves customers in and around Minneapolis with mobile services that are designed to help customers on the scene. Mann says that customers can visit them or they can bring one of their fleet of service vehicles to the customer to unlock their doors and create replacement keys as needed. He says that in the cold Minnesota winters, it is essential that consumers know who they can call on whenever their locks will not open due to frozen hardware or missing keys.
Mann states that they offer lockout services for vehicles and homes or businesses performed by the most qualified and experienced technicians in the industry. He states that their years of business could only be possible with their loyal customers and their professional team and that the company only hires the best in the region to serve their customers. He continues that those who would like to learn more about how the cold weather, snow and ice can affect their home and vehicle locks can visit the company online. The company website provides information about the range of services that the company offers in addition to their service areas. Those in need of lockout services can contact the company through their website or call or email them directly for assistance. Mann states that they regularly update their website with helpful information, such as how to deal with locks in cold weather, to keep their customers informed and prepared for any lockout situation.
