The locks on the doors on most homes keep the skilled burglar out
for about 30 seconds! This is especially true if the only thing
slowing him down is a standard key-in-the-knob lock.
Statistically, there’s about one residential burglary every 30
seconds in this country. Traditionally, as the economy falters
and times get harder, the number tends to rise.
Quite naturally, people are concerned and frightened. As a
result, locksmithing is not only one of the new “demand”
businesses, it’s rapidly becoming one of the more profitable
businesses for entrepreneurs with not too much capital to invest.
Today’s locksmiths are usually well versed in mathematics and
basic electronics. They almost always have to be, what with the
new types of locks being introduced. Today’s locksmith is more
likely to be known as a “Security Specialists,” then just
ordinary locksmith, as in the past.
