An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure—and this is true when it comes to protecting your property during winter months. ~Eugene Rozhavsky, J&M Locksmith

Metro Atlanta has experienced uncharacteristic single-digit temperatures this year. To prepare local consumers to get through the winter season when uncommon weather occurs, Atlanta locksmith J&M Locksmith offers 3 security tips to contend with effects of the winter months.
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure—and this is true when it comes to protecting your property during winter months” said Eugene Rozhavsky, J&M Locksmith owner. “Freezing temperatures and freezing rain create conditions perfect for frozen locks. Here are some tips to help prevent or fix home and car locks in the case of freezing.”
1. To prevent door deadbolts from freezing in extremely low temperatures, lubricate door locks using Houdini Lock Lube.
2. If door locks are frozen, warm the key or use a lock de-icer. Never combine heat with lock de-icer as it is flammable. Don’t pour warm water on the car as it may re-freeze, making the situation worse; warming your key first will help heat up the lock from the inside.
3. If locks have frozen and you have difficulty, call a local locksmith who will have a good de-icer and lubricant or warming method to open your lock and get you going.
