Under Lock And Key: Four Things You Should Lock Up, From Not Serious To Top Secret

by Alfredo Griffin

Locksmiths see all kinds of things behind locked doors, locked safes, and locked cabinets. Yet, the reasons for locking up what is inside are as varied as the customers themselves. If you think you have something you want locked up, here is where the locksmith can help. From the not-so-serious items to Top Secret!, here are some items that definitely should be safely secured.

Your Journals

Journals are private things. Most people who keep journals also try to keep them locked up. Their very personal thoughts are meant only for them (usually!). If you have things in your head you want to purge on paper but do not want anyone else to read, invest in a small safe to lock your journals safely away.

Your Work

Work is proprietary information. Your boss expects you to keep work documents from being viewed by others. If you take your work home with you (as lawyers and business people often do), then be sure you have a safe to lock it up at the end of the night.

Your Guns

This hot topic of the day is one of major concern. Keeping your guns locked up is extremely important right now, if you want to keep guns in your possession. However, you need to keep the guns out of the hands of anyone that would misuse them. Ergo, buy gun cases to lock up individual guns, and then put the cased guns inside a gun safe. Hide the keys to the safe and the keys to the cases in multiple spots around your home so that no one can find the keys and bust out your guns for harm. If you want to make your firearms ultra-safe, ask a locksmith for some high-tech solutions.

Top Secret Files and Items Given to You for Safekeeping

IF you have a government job as an agent for the CIA, FBI, Homeland Security, or Department of Defense, you really do have to put everything on lockdown. That includes your home, in case foreign enemies have identified you as someone to target. Items given to you to keep safe and keep out of enemy hands need the highest kinds of locking technology available. 

Commercial locksmiths might be what you really need here. They often provide security measures a residential locksmith may not have access to. Also, check with your boss or director in regards to the installation of home security measures so that top secret files and items are not compromised.
