SK Locksmith Launches New Affordability Initiatives in Light of Lofty Break-Ins

Discounts and free estimates help offset the cost of upgrading home security, publishes


Houston, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/06/2015 -- A recently released statement from the Federal Bureau of Investigation disclosed 1 in every 36 residences in American cities with a population of 250,000 or more is broken into each year. Having a populace of almost 2.2 million, the city of Houston is impacted significantly by these statistics. In an effort to encourage home security upgrades among those living in the Houston area, Shai Kurland of SK Locksmith has launched the company's latest discount offering.

Kurland elaborated, "Almost any locksmith can repair a broken lock and help with simple issues, but our team has the equipment, training and experience to solve all our customers' security issues. At the same time, we are fully aware that taking measures to increase home security can be quite an investment for some people. This prompted us to find a way to offset the cost associated with keeping local families safe. Our resolution to the matter comes in the form of offering a 10 percent discount on our services for first time customers as well as providing free home security assessments and estimates for all those in need of our assistance."

While front and rear door locks are certainly crucial elements in rendering a home less vulnerable to intrusion, many homeowners fail to consider the numerous other components involved. Window locks must also be secure with frames wholly intact. As the largest and often most overlooked portion of the home, garage openings additionally need to be structurally sound with fully functional locking mechanisms on the doors; otherwise, the home's susceptibility is compounded.

According to the SK Locksmith website,, the company covers all these bases during their residential security evaluations, providing traditional lock repairs and new installations. Aside from these, their technicians are also licensed and experienced in installing more modern digital locks throughout the home. With rising identity theft concerns across the nation, the SK Locksmith team also recommends having mailbox locks installed and inspected on a regular basis.

Concluded Kurland, "For those who have already had the misfortune of experiencing a break-in, we are skilled in post-burglary repairs as well. Our company also places high priority on fast response to emergency situations, and our technicians generally arrive within 20 minutes of receiving a call of this nature whenever possible. Our goal has always been to ensure those in our community are safe in their own homes and businesses. With our new affordability initiatives in place, taking the necessary precautions is now within almost everyone's budget. Anyone in need of our services should feel free to contact us by phone or via our website,"
