Sometimes it is easy to focus on the lock itself, and not the larger mechanism behind it. Pay attention to your door hinges, oil them often, and know that not paying attention to your door’s hinges are just as bad as not looking after your locks. Both pose a hazard to your safety, which is the most important thing to us.
We all have doors and windows we don’t use every day. These locks should also be tested and maintained. It may seem unnecessary to do this but safety is important.
