I started taking our vehicles to Robert in 2004. Wouldn't go anywhere else. Always had quality work done, ready on time, estimates have been correct. Once when I had to be towed to him from an accident, was told by the experienced towing pro that there were only three places in Vegas they recommended to people for good honest repair, and Bob was one of them. He is the best.
waited for three hours for a locksmith to come. I called several times and three times they said a locksmith was on the way. Never came.
If you seen my cars Instagram page instagram.com/1990hondaaccord you know that I really care about my car and like to do everything yourself. Well when it comes to doing something that needs tools that I do not have. I want to take the job to somebody they can do it as good as I would or even better. But I do not want to spend an arm and a leg and have some dealership mechanics taking my car out for a joyride. That's why when it came to rebuilding my engine for my record I went to Wally’s. They definitely had the tools experience and knowledge to do the job correctly with all manufactures parts. And treat my car with the at most care that I would do myself. This is not the first vehicle I've brought to them it started in the late 80s with my 1970 Honda Civic CVCC. Would stay replace the bottom end of the engine. And my 1980 Honda accord hatchback with all the major service. If God for bid I was to get a Toyota, I would certainly feel safe bringing it over to Precision performance just because if there was any problems the guys from Wally's would be willing to step in and help.
Got a brake job top quality parts and fast service. will be back for anything else that will come up.
I have been a customer for 17 years, couldn't recommend them more. Jim has always been honest and professional,the mechanics are friendly,honest and highly experienced . I totally trust this business.
These people should never be allowed to touch a vehicle to repair it. I blew my engine coming into Nevada from California on a trip there from Texas. I had my vehicle towed to Findlay Chevrolet. My engine was still under warranty and the service tech Carlos Aquino told me it would be fixed in seven-nine days. I rented a hotel at the rio and waited. While waiting I received a call stating my rotors were cracked and needed replacing. I explained that that would be impossible as I personally purchased and installed them within the last month. He sheepishly said oh, well thats just what Greg (their star mechanic) had said. I asked for pictures and only received pictures of the tires. I asked why and they said they didnt have a special key to get the lug nuts off. I asked how in the heck could they determine bad rotors with the tires on and estimate a $600 charge. Dunno he says. I am nervous now. When the 9 day eaiting period comes and I enquire about my vehicle they state it will be another week or two at the longest. I am out of money so I go back to california to live in my daughters travel trailer like a hobo for the next 3 weeks which is how long it took me to get the call to come pick up my vehicle. I make the 5hr drive to go pick up my vehicle glad the nightmare is over. When I arrive I am rushed by Carlos to sign papers. I refuse until I drive it. We get in the suburban and I put it in reverse to back up. Nothing. I put it back and forth into park and reverse and it finally engages. Carlos is in passenger seat and says "it never did that before". I say no. We drive away and within the first block I notice the engine is very sluggish and it sounds very rough. We drive right back and I tell them to fix it. I go back with my kids, daughter and grandchildren (one of which was a newborn) to the waiting area and waited. The mechanic tells me it is the a/c compressor (which had never been a problem before). I tell him - impossible, check again. Post continued......
The locks installed on the doors and windows of every home represent the most common, and perhaps most effective, form of security. That means locks can be taken for granted, until they no longer work properly or the key is lost. Homeowners should work to understand the basics behind these essential household devices, as well as how to address common problems related to them.
The concept behind a lock-and-key mechanism has been around for centuries, so it's no surprise that their basic design hasn't changed much in recent years. At the same time, a number of different types of locks are now available to meet specific needs.
Perhaps the most common type of lock is the pin tumbler lock. Enclosed in a doorknob, these devices contain spring-loaded pins of varying sizes, which must be pushed upward before the knob can be turned to open the door. When the correct key is inserted into a pin tumbler lock, the grooves on the key's blade push the pins up to the precise height needed to allow the inner chamber to turn. Pin tumbler locks are popular because they are relatively secure for most residential applications and generally inexpensive. Since the entire locking mechanism in this device is contained in a single cylinder, pin tumbler locks are also very easy to swap in and out. This comes in handy in apartment buildings, for example, where locks may need to be changed frequently as tenants come and go.
Pin tumbler locks come in a number of configurations. In residential environments, they are the primary mechanism for operating knob locks and deadbolts. Most exterior doors on homes and apartment buildings will have at least one of each of these locks. Knob locks are quick to open and can be convenient when minimal security is acceptable, but they are very easily forced open. When paired with a deadbolt, the door becomes much harder to open. Deadbolts work by driving a thick metal rod into the door frame, which prevents most quick methods of defeating locks, like using a shim or brute force. Still, deadbolts aren't impenetrable, as they can be lockpicked or defeated with much stronger ramming force.
Other common types of residential locks include mortise locks, which combine the action of a doorknob and deadbolt in one. Mortise locks engage a deadbolt with the turn of the key, just as normal. But upon unlocking, the doorknob will open in tandem with the deadbolt. These locks tend to be much stronger than traditional deadbolt designs, but are often harder to install and thus more expensive.
Finally, there's the "jimmy-proof" deadbolt, a type of lock often found in older residences. These locks engage a metal rod that fits into a separate chamber outside of the door frame, rather than through the frame. While its design is simple, it has many advantages over traditional deadbolts or mortise locks. It is impervious to being pried open like many deadbolt systems could be, hence the "jimmy-proof" name. It is also typically harder to pick, and is very inexpensive.
When a lock stops working, no matter where it is in your home or office, it's likely to be a source of frustration. However, it's rare for a lock to suddenly fail to open without exhibiting some signs beforehand.
Common lock problems include issues opening or engaging the lock, or difficulty securing a door in the proper position to lock it.
Since locks are essential security devices that might be used multiple times per day, they are bound to wear out eventually. Rekeying or replacing locks can be done on your own in some cases, but may require a professional locksmith.
When a lock is rekeyed, the cylinder containing the tumbler and pins is removed from its enclosure and replaced with a new cylinder. This is often done when a new tenant moves into an apartment that was previously occupied, but it may also be necessary if a lock needs to be replaced.
Replacing all components of a cylinder lock, or working with locks that don't use a pin tumbler system, requires a different procedure for replacement. Installing a new lock of the same type will be the most straightforward option.
If you want a new lock that is different from your old set, more advanced installation is required, and you may want to consider hiring a professional for the job.
The term locksmith traditionally referred to people who designed and built locks, but today is generally used for those who repair and replace locks. Locksmiths can be available on-call to help people if they're locked out of their home or apartment.
If you've lost your keys or are otherwise unable to enter a locked building that you normally have access to, you will need to call your local locksmith. To save money and ensure you're hiring a reputable contractor, it may help to do some research on locksmiths in your area ahead of time, so you can be prepared if you need to call one.
Upon arrival to your home, a locksmith should ask you to prove that it is in fact your residence. They should also be able to unlock most common locks without requiring them to be drilled or completely replaced. Be sure to obtain an invoice that lists all charges before agreeing to pay.
Locks are ubiquitous around the world, which means the skills to service them are always in demand. Becoming a locksmith could be a rewarding career opportunity, but like any other job, will require a bit of preparation.
Locksmiths do not generally require formal education, but need to undergo extensive hands-on training and possibly certification. Locksmiths-in-training can receive foundational knowledge and skills through programs offered at technical colleges or vocational schools. These would include basic courses on lock mechanics and manipulation, along with general skills like business management.
From there, most trainees seek an apprenticeship, where they work alongside a professional locksmith. This allows them to gain experience in the field. It can also put them on a course toward certification, which involves a standardized procedure that, once completed, allows locksmiths to legally conduct business in their state.
Successful locksmiths need to be skilled with their hands and in the use of tools. While these skills are essential for the day-to-day tasks that a locksmith performs, they also benefit immensely from being personable and able to work with people to solve problems.
There are a number of trade associations and organizations for locksmiths that may help them find work, receive training and connect with like-minded business partners. These organizations may also help consumers find a reputable locksmith. Locksmith trade associations in the U.S. include:
