Your Top Choice for Biometric Lock Installation in Vacaville
Living in Vacaville has many perks, but the price we pay for beautiful weather is the need for higher security than some of the flyover states. We’re going to guess that no matter which part of town you live in, you wouldn’t think of leaving your door unlocked as you go about your daily business. The fact of the matter is that in this crazy and chaotic world we’re living in, keeping your property and your family safe from intruders is more important than ever.
Luckily, the technology that prevents people from entering your home without your permission has changed to match the growing security challenges that American homeowners face. You’ve maybe already experienced it as a way to keep your information private on your mobile phone. That’s right, we’re talking about the use of a fingerprint scanner to determine access to and from your home.
Bob's Lock & Safe is proud to be one of the only operators in the Vacaville area offering full-service biometric door lock systems to residents. When the world changes, it’s important to change the security of your home to keep up with it. That’s why we encourage every Vacaville resident to switch to a biometric lock for their front door today. There’s simply no choice more secure for the locks in your home.
What Is a Biometric Lock?
The word biometric literally means “life-measuring” and it’s a pretty accurate description of what it does. The fingerprint scanner on your digital door lock will read the unique fingerprints of you and your family members. That means there’s zero chance of anyone losing their keys to the front door—they’re attached to you! It also adds security. Despite what you see in the movies, fingerprint scanners are hard to fool. So there’s almost no way to get a false positive reading. And no way to sneak in and make a copy of the key to plan future robberies.
The Best Choice for the Newest Lock Technology
If you’re looking to install a fingerprint door lock or other biometric lock, or even if you’re just looking to beef up the security in your home by adding an electronic lock or digital door lock, Bob's Lock & Safe has the solutions you need to bring your home into the 21st century.
That isn’t the only solution we’re able to offer. In fact, while we are Vacaville’s biometric lock specialists, we also provide plenty of secure and safe conventional lock mechanisms, such as deadbolt locks. We provide analog locks and digital door locks to meet your needs and your budget, whatever they may be.

Common Lock Problems and How to Fix Them
Many door knob and lockset problems can be corrected relatively easily. You might be tempted to panic when you can’t get it to work, either because you can’t get it open or you can’t close it, but most of the time there is a simple solution. To save you some time, here are some tips that might come in handy. Of course, if all else fails, then it’s worth your while to call (707) 678-2688 and get one of Bob’s Lock & Safe lock experts to swing by your Vacaville home or business to provide a lasting solution to your issue. However, if all you have time for is a quick fix, then trust this professional advice.
Lock Isn’t Latching Properly
When a door latch doesn’t snap into position, it usually means that the latch and the strike plate are out of alignment. Tighten the hinge screws and then try adjusting the strike plate by loosening its screw and readjusting its position.
If the latch still fails to catch, close the door slowly to watch how the latch bolt aligns with the strike plate. Scars on the strike plate will show you where it’s catching. If the slight readjustment doesn’t do the trick, give us a call and we can mortise the jamb or apply other repair techniques to make sure that it starts catching again.
Lock is Stuck
When you are able to get the key into the lock but can’t manage to turn it, it is one of the most frustrating feelings in the world. There are a number of reasons why this might be happening, but no matter what the cause, it is absolutely essential that you don’t force it to turn. Forcing the key to turn could result in major lock damages or, worse, the key breaking off in the lock. You can try using graphite or silicone spray to lubricate the lock. If you don’t have either handy, then know that our expertise is only a phone call away.
Key Won’t Fit in the Lock
This is a very common problem with any type of lock that uses keys. Even though this is a common issue, it doesn’t make it any less frustrating. The first thing we must recommend is that you double check to make sure you are in fact using the right key. We know it sounds condescending but the number of times we have arrived to unlock a door only to find out that the client has since let themselves in thanks to finding the right key is far too many. Of course, if it is the right key, then it’s a serious problem.
If it’s a newly cut key, there’s always the chance that it was poorly cut. Take the key back to where it was cut and get a new key made. If it’s an old key, then call (707) 678-2688 immediately and we’ll be there to solve the issue in hardly no time at all.
Slow Door Locks
In general, slow locks are a simple thing to fix. Usually, this problem occurs most frequently when dirt or grime has accumulated in your locks over time. You could try the DIY method and if you choose to pursue this route, then you should first try to slowly insert a cotton swab into the lock to attract the dirt. However, if that doesn’t work they you will need to lubricate the lock, but it’s important not to use oil.
At Bob's Lock & Safe, we will never make this mistake. The reason why oil and grease don’t work well is because they can actually end up clogging the lock and cause further issues. To avoid this problem, we will always use a graphite or silicon spray that will help lubricate the locks. The reason that our lock service has proven so popular is because most people do not have the expertise or tools to undertake a job of this nature and that is why they call our service so regularly. Our trained professionals can get your lock back in tip-top shape in no time at all.
Have you ever experienced that sinking feeling where you insert the key of your home or commercial property into the lock but realize to your horror that it simply will not turn? If this sounds familiar to you, then it is an indicator that your lock has seized up and needs to be addressed right away. As a professional locksmith expert, this is a problem that we encounter on a regular basis and, like most things, there are a number of reasons why this could happen. However, what is even more important than the cause of the lock seizure is the fact that you really shouldn’t force it and try and open the door. Doing so, could result in major lock damages or could result in the key breaking off in the lock, only making matters worse. At Bob's Lock & Safe, we generally try and fix issues of this nature by using a graphite or silicone spray that will help lubricate the lock. If that doesn’t prove successful, then we will use our experience to devise a plan that will fix the problem without causing any damage to your lock.
Bolt Is Stuck
If you find that your home or business’s lock isn’t working properly, and it is not because of a damaged key, seized lock or latch that isn’t doing what it should, then it is likely that you have a bolt problem on your hands. A bolt issue is almost always caused by a mechanical problem that should be left by the pros to fix. In situations like this, it is often the case that the juice isn’t worth the squeeze when it comes to repairing it and, as such, we will recommend replacing the lock completely. In general, new locks aren’t expensive and can be replaced quickly and effectively. If you think of it like this, life is stressful enough when you experience a lock break. Our licensed and insured locksmith will have you on your way in no time at all.
