What Makes a Great Locksmith?

If you are like most people, the chances are that you have locked yourself out of your vehicle, home or office at least once in your lifetime. It happens to the best of us — locks can cause trouble any time of the week, day or night. Who’ll come to your rescue when you need it most? Of course, your favorite Chicago locksmith.

New Year, New Locks, No Keys

We’re about a week in now and the dust is beginning to settle on this new year. We’re all a little older, perhaps a little wiser, than last year, and ready for new projects and responsibilities. For many that means longer working hours and less time at home.
