Finding Stronger Safes

After I started investing in gold instead of stocks and bonds, I realized that my cheap house safe was just not going to do the trick. I wanted to protect the hundreds of thousands of dollars that I had in gold, so I started shopping around for stronger, more durable safes. I was able to find a company that offered incredible locks and safes for reasonable prices, so I reached out to them for help. They were amazing to work with, and they even came out to my house to help me to fit the area for size. This blog is all about shopping for a better safe.

Are Your Parents Moving In? Hire a Locksmith to Help With the Transition


After buying a large home, you may ask if your parents want to move in. This will allow them to sell their home and move in to reduce overall expenses for your entire family. But this transition is not something that you should expect to happen without any changes happening. You can make the transitioning easier by hiring a residential locksmith to work on a few things around the home.

Install a Bedroom Door Lock

The first thing that you will want to do is install a door lock for your parents' bedroom. This will allow them to gain complete privacy when they do not want anyone coming inside. You can even install a door lock with the ability to be opened in an emergency. This way, you do not have to worry about one of your parents getting injured and you not being able to get into the room.

Provide a Personal Safe

While you should expect your parents to bring along various belongings, a safe is not necessarily one of them. If they want somewhere to protect their items, you want to keep them from having to get a safe that takes up room in the home. An ideal alternative is to install a safe in the floor or wall. They can conceal it with a rug or artwork to maximize the safety of their possessions.

If you can fit in a huge safe, you may want to discuss options with your parents because they may be willing to pitch in to get a large enough safe for storing all their most valued items.

Make Additional Keys

When your parents move in, you will want to give them access to everywhere in the home. You can have a locksmith make copies for all the keys in your home. You may even want to take this as an opportunity to rekey some locks so that you can reduce the number of keys you need.

Get New Window Locks

To make your parents feel more comfortable when moving in, you can replace the window locks. You may want to make the locks easier for your parents to use if you have latch locks. These locks can demand a lot of strength to lock securely, but key locks are not as demanding.

Investing in these services before your parents move into your home will provide them with a warm welcome and give them a sense that they still have their own privacy and protection.
