Installing a deadbolt lock can make your home more secure

Posted by Dominic Schwebs on

If you don’t already have a deadbolt lock on your front door, it’s a good idea to install one.

It’s not necessary to call a locksmith to have a deadbolt installed. You don’t even need carpentry skills. This is a project that can be taken on as a DIY with the right knowledge and tools.  

FBI statistics show that roughly 60% of break-ins are forced entry. A deadbolt lock

Posted by Dominic Schwebs on

Many banks are discontinuing the long-standing service of renting safe deposit boxes to their customers. Bank of America has done away with boxes at a number of locations.

Renting safe deposit boxes to your customers

Posted by Dominic Schwebs on

It seems that the use of safe deposit boxes is becoming more rare. With more people owning safes that they keep in their home, the need to rent out a deposit box from a bank is not as common. A recent survey showed that only six percent of bank customers rent a deposit box. One-third of the customers are over 65.
