Why Newark Locksmith Likes Tumbler Locks
Not all tumbler locks are created equal. There is also a tubular pin tumbler lock supplied by Newark Locksmith that is also known as an Ace lock. Newark Locksmith guarantees that it is more secure than a regular pin and tumbler lock. It has 6-8 pins arranged in a circle and is cylindrical in shape. It is safer and more resilient to picking than standard locks, according to Newark Locksmith, but because the pins are exposed, it is easier for a trained locksmith like an employee at Newark Locksmith to pick, with the correct locksmith tools.
The Newark Locksmith technician will manipulate all of the pins to the shear line and rotate the plug, causing the pins to fall into the next hole, requiring this to be done over and over. This is why Newark Locksmith uses this type of lock, and also why it is harder to pick. The key and driver pins are pushed towards the front of the lock, which prevents the plug from rotating when the wrong key is inserted. The tubular key has several half cylinder indents with align with the pins, which fits into the rectangular part of the lock the Newark Locksmith has installed, causing the indentations to align with the pins, so when the Newark Locksmith tech inserts a key, the pins are aligned correctly, the lock turns.
Another lock popular with Newark Locksmith is the disc tumbler lock which consists of slotted rotating retainer discs, which require a specially cut key, for extra security, by Newark Locksmith to rotate the disks, like the tumblers inside of a safe, aligning the slots so that the sidebar drops into the slots and opens the lock. It is more secure and cannot be bumped by anybody, including a Newark Locksmith because there are no springs used.
Disc tumbler locks are difficult to pick and considered high security locks by Newark Locksmith. It is not impossible to pick the lock, but a trained professional from Newark Locksmith is probably the only one that can do it as quickly as possible. Because this lock is so difficult to pick, a criminal can find an alternative way to break in. It can be disabled by drilling into the lock, but a Newark Locksmith can install anti-drilling plates to prevent this.
Lever tumbler locks are also used by Newark Locksmith as a high security lock that uses levers instead of pins, wafers, or springs. There must be an odd number of levers for it to work correctly. The more levels installed by a Newark Locksmith, the more secure the system is. Newark Locksmith also suggests double acting lever locks, which have been around since 1778, which require the lever to be lifted to a certain height, and they require a specially made bitted key by a Newark Locksmith professional. These are mostly seen in Europe and work differently than the locks Newark Locksmith is used to.
