Written by The LockSmith on . Posted in Blog

Without your car, traveling across town for groceries or ferrying the kids to and from soccer practice becomes a major hassle. But your car doesn’t just make your life more convenient—it also represents a major investment of your time and money. Unfortunately, the more time and money you put into your car, the more attractive it can become to potential thieves.

No one wants to wake up to an empty driveway or return to an empty mall parking space. Instead of worrying about the potential for car theft, use our tips below to safeguard your car and reduce its attractiveness to would-be thieves.

Gun Safety: How to Protect Your Children When There Are Guns in the Home

Written by The LockSmith on . Posted in Blog

You may have a gun in the home for any number of reasons. A 2013 Pew Research survey lists the following as the biggest factors for gun owners:

  • Protection (48%)
  • Hunting (32%)
  • Sport shooting (7%)
  • Constitutional right (2%)
  • Collection/hobby (2%)

Whatever your reasoning, it’s safe to say that owning a gun comes with a set of responsibilities. Hunting and sport shooting can develop into fun family hobbies, but it’s important to teach children responsible gun use. Even if you don’t intend to allow your children to use the gun, education can make all the difference in their safety.

Follow these tips to protect your children with information about gun safety.
