There is alot that goes on in running a locksmith company. Most people only see the house or store lock unlocked with lockpicks, the car being unlocked, or the new locks being installed. What people don't see is the hours of training, the constant buying of tools, supplies and equipment, learning new locksmith techniques, the online work building the presence of a locksmith business, the overhead in advertisements, or the licensing fees and taxes. It's a tough business. But at Chris Mullen, Locksmith Service in Stockton, CA we believe that hard, and smart work pays off.
Be the best at what you do, and the rest will fall into place. True also in many aspects of life.

Today is what You call a slow day in the locksmith business. The level of calls were low, and the ones that did come were not fruitful. These days come and go, it's a part of the deal.
There are two types of lockmsiths; the ones who make what they need and then stop answering their phone, and the ones who run their business like they're supposed to. They answer their calls during the normal hours, and actually call people back who leave messages for needing emergency locksmith service after hours. My company is the one that is run like it's supposed to be. But even then, there are those slow days. And enjoy them, because they are few and far between!
Luckily for me today, I happen to be a little under the weather. So today couldn't have been a more perfect day to be slow. I rested! I always have a mile long to-do list but today, I listened to my body and rested. Of coarse I still looked thru the truck, checked inventory, made a couple phone calls and did all the normal stuff you do when running a business but, all and all it was just a slow day, and that's ok!
When you learn to put your trust in God, your sense of security no longer leans on the false sense of comfort that financial gain brings. Of coarse we all like to know money is coming in, but just because money isn't coming in at that exact moment, doesn't mean your needs aren't being met. And alot of your wants too!
So I'll keep this brief to get back to enjoying the evening. In short sometimes you just have to slow down and smell the roses. Hope everyone had an awesome day!

Today we got to serve two customers in Stockton, CA. The first one was a nice young lady in the Brookside area. She was on her way back from a trip and had misplaced her house key. Luckily she found Chris Mullen, Locksmith Service on Google! We showed up within the quoted estimated arrival time and got to work.
The first thing we noticed was that the front door was a Kwikset "Smartkey" Deadbolt with a matching latch. As any locksmith knows, the "Smartkey" feature does not allow the usual method for unlocking a door such as using lockpicks. The Kwikset Smartkey locks utilize an internal wafer system which does not give much oppertunity for picking or any of the other methods commonly used by professional locksmiths. It was time to go for plan B.
We explained to the customer that her front door lock had the Smartkey lock style and that the only way to gain access thru that door would be a destructive entry (drill out) and that we would need to replace the lock afterwards. Understandably, she didn't like the sound of drilling out and replacing her front door lock. We asked if she had a back or side door that perhaps, did not have a smartkey lock on it. She led around the back yard and we got to the back door. The back door was a standard pin tumbler deadbolt. The lever handle was unlocked.
Utilizing a professional pick gun, we unlocked the back door. Using lockpicks or a manual pick gun will not compromise the security of a lock in any way. After unlocking the back door lock the customer opened her door only to find that the next door (leading from inside of garage into the house) was also locked, and this time with again, Kwikset Smartkey Locks. Luckily we were able to unlock the doggie door, and unlock the deadbolt latch by going thru the doggie door.
The customer was satisfied with the service provided. We verified identification, gave the customer her receipt and went back to the shop. Upon arriving back at the shop the same customer calls us again. The customer was unable to locate her spare set of keys so she asked for us to come back out and rekey the front door so that she could again lock and unlock her door with a key. We successfully completed this service for the customer who again was very pleased with the service provided.
Later in the day we had to go out for a lock repair for a nail salon which ended up being a rekey. The customer had explained that their key was only working for the exterior of their adams rite mortise cylinder lockset for their commercial door. Upon arrival we came to the conclusion that beings they recently took over the business that they never actually had the correct key. So we rekeyed the interior deadbolt so that both the exterior and interior deadbolts would work with the same key.
Like the first customer of the day the nail salon was very pleased with the fast and thorough service that was provided.
All and all it was a great day at Chris Mullen, Locksmith Service. Thanks so much for reading.
Have an awesome day!
