I need a locksmith in Fresno area
« on: Jan 04, 2017, 08:52:11 PM »
I want to change out all my locks- doors, ignition and tailgate.  Any recommendations?  I want everything keyed alike so I only have 1 key.

I always liked the 4 low/reverse/weld loops on the shifters idea there is pics somewhere around here.
The idea of some dumb thief driving in 4lo reverse always makes me giggle!
Don't know if they still make the kryptonite style key locks for autos anymore.

I would install kill switch, as far as replacing door locks, it's pretty easy, if you can pop your interior door panels off, the rest is easy. I installed "solex" brand door locks. They are a deterrent at most. I have hidden GPS tracker too .Which to me is the best. Unless they bring a van full of people, and steal every vechicle I have, I'll be at there doorstep before the cops  :tantrum:

lol I like the gps tracker idea, there are alot of new small units out there.  I also had planned on a kill switch but you know how Fresno area is.  I plan on the chain or bar (this is what I have been mulling around in my brain) set up for sure.

Solex brand huh a quick search and they are an interesting lock, round.

Thanks for the replies.

ovrarock what did you go with on the gps tracker if you dont mind me asking?  I see the tile and things like that but that requires changing batteries.  I want to avoid that if I can.

I used to have a fleet of trucks for landscaping that I was tracking. I'm using an old land air sea 7100. Runs of small motorcycle battery that is hidden out of the way .No fees, cost 25 cents every time you ping. Nowdays there are so many smaller units that are effective. Been thinking of obtaining ham license, for tracking purposes as well as better communication on the trails
