Posted by Acme Lock on Tue, Oct 02, 2018 @ 02:02 PM

It can be one of the worst sights to come home to. A broken front door, a shattered window, or a compromised lock. As soon as you walk in, you see disarray, or immediately spot items missing.

There are some crucial steps to take, as soon as possible, to make sure you can bounce back as best as possible.

The High Cost of Car Keys

Posted by Acme Lock on Mon, Sep 03, 2018 @ 02:22 PM

At the beginning of the 20th century, the first Model T Ford cars required a simple car key, but it was separate from the starting process itself. The first true ignition key for a car was introduced in 1949 by Chrysler. Ignition keys for cars were largely the same for years after. What’s more, they were relatively simple keys that could be copied for only a few dollars.

How to deal with being locked out of your filing cabinet Part 2

Posted by Acme Lock on Thu, Aug 02, 2018 @ 12:13 PM

What, we’re doing this again. Just a few weeks ago, we went over all the ways you could break into your filing, reminding you all the while that you’d be better off calling us. But you, oh you know it all, you’ve decided that you’re going to do it yourself because you just don’t want to be bothered taking the few minutes it would take to dial our number. Seriously it’s 513-241-2614, I bet you could dial that faster than I can finish this bag of potato chips. (but just barely, because seriously I’m hungry) Your bathroom still hasn’t been fixed after that viking gerbil funeral, but instead you’re going to invest your time in some of these silly ideas. Well, fine then. Here we go with some new suggestions for you.

How to deal with being locked out of your filing cabinet Part 1

Posted by Acme Lock on Mon, Jul 02, 2018 @ 12:23 PM

Look, today was supposed to be a productive day. You had PLANS.  A trip downtown, because you’d heard that the lines at city hall were shorter in the middle of the week. Maybe you need to file your Form 10-Oh-7-C with the local government and have to show your house title, car purchase receipt, and birth certificate, all of which you keep in the locked top drawer of your filing cabinet you bought at Office City Warehouse 10 years ago. But lo and behold, the key to that drawer was eaten by your roommate’s pet gerbil 6 weeks ago and they forgot to tell you. Wouldn’t be so bad, except the gerbil died right after and your roommate flushed it down the toilet in order to give it a viking style funeral, complete with a set of burning roman candles to simulate the firey arrows.

A Fresh Look at Glass Doors

Posted by Acme Lock on Mon, Jun 04, 2018 @ 06:25 PM

It’s a wonderful feeling as summer has come on strong and beautiful. The long grey days of winter are gone. Even though it’s only been a few months since we were still seeing snowy days, those days seem like a distant memory as the summer heat and even better the bright sun has overtaken us. As these summer days leave us feeling warm and hopeful though, there’s a frustration that’s likely to come. You still have just as many things that need doing indoors around the house. Laundry, cooking, cleaning, all the things that keep your home running like clockwork, and chances are you’re not getting to enjoy those longer days of sunlight. Look around you and see just how much of the outdoors you get to see?
