How to Open a Frozen Lock Maple Ridge: The most common cause of the locks being frozen if people have washed their car so that the whole door’s frozen.

The Polar Vortex is causing below freezing temperatures and winter storms across Canada and the US. Winter storms can bring cold temperatures, power failures and frozen locks.

The easiest, quickest way is you get some windshield lock de-icer or this is windshield and window de-icer. You can make your own. Basically, it is isopropyl alcohol aka rubbing alcohol. Just spray the whole sides of the car door. Spray the lock. Spray the sides. Spray all over. It is not going to hurt the car. Stinky, yes. Be careful it is extremely flammable. Just let it seep into the door cracks, handle and lock. You can change the bottle to it to a stream but get it right in there. Get it on everything, and then you can get the door open. You can make your own lock de-icer, as well as your windshield de-icer. For your lock de-icer just use this rubbing alcohol. This one is 91% isopropyl alcohol. This is great just for raw, lock de-icer. If you want to make some windshield de-icer, it works fantastic. Use two-thirds of the high-quality rubbing alcohol with one-third water. If you’re at home get your hairdryer. Plug it in. There are some 12-volt hair dryers. At home just plug it into an extension cord. Get the hairdryer going. You’re going to blow hot air all down the sides. This is another handy method. If you don’t have the lock de-icer, the windshield de-icer, get a hairdryer. Put an extension cord on it. Just sit there and just heat up the whole door, all the edges, all everything, as well as the lock. This works pretty well. Takes some time, but it works great. So I hope this has been of help to unfreeze your frozen car door or frozen lock you are locked out.

Frozen Hockey Puck Lock

Hockey Pucks locks are great for protecting your service truck or locksmith vehicle from Break and Enter attempts. However, in the winter the Hockey Pucks locks on your Locksmith Van or service truck ice up and the locks become frozen while driving in the snow or slush. Prevention is the number one so use WD-40 and spray the heck out of it. WD-40 is a penetrating oil, but it is also water displacement fluid. If your Hockey Puck lock t is iced up give it a few hits first with a rubber hammer then take your lock deicer. Eighty percent or more isopropyl alcohol is the best. Take the lock deicer, get it right in the keyhole, spread it all over it, and that should work where our key will now be able to go in and open it up. Prevention’s the best bet. Give the lock and keyway lots of WD-40, and it works really well to prevent the lock from frezzing. On my own Mr. Locksmith service truck I don’t mind using a butane lighter blowtorch. Just give the blowtorch a little twist, push and click and you get a nice hot flame. Just heat the hockey puck lock right up. Again, I wouldn’t do this on a customer’s. This is my own locksmith service truck. This will get the all unfrozen. And be careful, the lock can get really, really hot. The other way is to get a lighter, match, etc. to heat the lock or keyway. I have this little propane torch. Just heat your key up it doesn’t take long. Heat it up, and then you can start putting it into the lock. Another method to unfreeze the lock if you have nothing just heat the key with your hand, hold it in your hand, get it all heated up. It takes a long time, but if you have nothing, just use your hand. So again, if you have absolutely nothing, heat it with your hand. Just hold it in your hand, heat it up.

Weiser PowerBolt 1 Installaton

So the Weiser Powerbolt. And I don’t know if it is a good lock or bad lock, I’ll say that upfront. The reason the customer had problems was, the battery went dead. So the battery was dead on their Weiser bolt. So we got instructions, installation thing, little skinny little keypad, box of stuff. You know, the inside is not so small. Instructions is what’s in this should be the bolt. So, we have the bolt, this is if you wanna convert it to a drive-in latch. And we have a strike plate for the edge of the door, another plate, and our screws. Now this is different than a lot of the newer locks, we call it the D, this is still using the, just the little slot there. So the bolt is using just the slot. So it’s not your typical D, D latch on this one. And it’s adjustable. So it goes from 2 3/8″ to 2 3/4″ backset

You remember, does this say top? It doesn’t have top on it. Remember we call it Mickey mouse ears, the ears go on top. So that’s the top and it’s adjustable 2 3/8″ to 2 3/4″ backset. There is a different bolt than they have in there, in their other locks, more of an old, old style, but it’s still different. Oh, there’s the tailpiece, I said bits and pieces inside plate. Let’s see how it goes on. Okay. It’s got long screws, short screws, different thicks of doors. Takes four AA batteries and no batteries supplied. It didn’t say that on the box, Where are my batteries? Okay. I’ll just grab some batteries.

I got lots of batteries. Remember as locksmiths, always carry lots of fresh batteries. So here are no batteries, no big deal. We will play with that. Let’s throw in some width screws, to there. Remember, don’t crank these in all the way. It’s, we just want them snug. That’s all. That appears to go under. And, the cord from the exterior to the interior goes under the bolt, goes into the lower part and we’re gonna use the slightly longer screws. Okay. So that looks good. That’s not crimped. Here we go. Now, this is the interesting part. It says just fit that in there. Okay. Just fits in. Okay. Where does it go?

We’ve got that into there. So there’s nothing on the exterior of the tailpiece to activate the deadbolt, just slips in. Then we take the power supply or hook up the cable. Let’s get going, see if it fits. One of the big problems you have to have with all these locks is, do not crimp the cables, cause that’s a pain in the butt. So we have machine screws. Remember, use machine screws don’t use wood screws. I always have lots of batteries.

PowerBolt Batteries

The lock requires four (4) double-A batteries. Ooh, it’s happy. So right off the bat, I’ve always found these kinds of hard, if you’re doing the manually, it’s the, you think, I haven’t. The first time I installed the early, early versions of the Powerbolt, I thought I installed it wrong cause it was so hard turning that thumb turn. But that is normal. It’s not like a normal kind of lock. You don’t even feel the deadbolt going out, to the bolt itself, going out all the way. But it is going all the way. So, right off the bat that’s kind of hard, but not too hard.

PowerBolt 1 Instructions

Okay. I had to pull up the instructions. I can see why people hate these things. So from the inside, I have to hit the program. So the programming button is on the inside. So I guess you gotta be inside already to get this. There are different instructions for the left and the right. So this is left. Hit program. Two beeps. Press one-two. Press program again. I will hear one short beep. Now press in a four to eight-digit code. Didn’t like the last one, let’s do this. And then, press the program again. Now we hear one long beep. Okay. Let’s lock it. It locks. It unlocks. Lock it. Okay. Unlock it. Let’s see if it’ll handle another user code.

So we do a program, two beeps. Hit one-two. Press program again on the inside, one short beep. A four to eight-digit code. Let’s see if it’ll do this. One, two, three, four, then I press the program again. One long beep, successful. Okay. Let’s lock it. Then push the button. Okay. Now let’s lock it. The old number. Okay. It holds two numbers. So we can do, let’s just try this one more time and add another number. Press program. Press one-two, because it’s a left-hand lock. Press program again. And I’m gonna try one, two, three, four. Then I got to press program again. Nope. It didn’t like that.

It said three beeps, if you hear three beeps, it was unsuccessful. You know why you probably didn’t like the one-two, because this is left, by their, by there, this is a left. They call it a left walking latch. Well, that’s a bolt visor. It’s called a deadbolt. So it’s a left locking latch as per their instructions. So will, does not like the one two number, but it does like. Like that number. Lock again. And it likes That number. So if it’s a programming number, it doesn’t like that. So the other programming number, if it was the other way around, let’s see if it just locks that one out. Five six is considered a lock code number. So let’s just lock it. So we’re gonna program.

Press one-two, then press program again. Well, It liked that. Let’s try the number. Okay. So, because this is a, if I had to program it from original to a right hand, it won’t take one-two. But if I program it from here, it will take that as a programming code. Let’s just try one more programming code. So let’s just lock it. That’s it. Program. One two. Program. Didn’t like that, three beeps means wrong. The box and the instructions, I just took a quick look at it. I, it, I had to look at how many user codes of this handle. I had to go to the website to look it up and it will hold four user codes. They can be between, four or eight-digit, four to eight digits, whatever. So they don’t tell you that.

So it only holds four user codes. The instructions are poor. But we do know that if I, in theory, let’s try this. If I punch in, three times wrong, I’m locked out for 60 seconds. So if somebody is playing with it, gets locked out. Now I wonder, let’s try a proper code. Now it won’t let me try anything. What if I lock it and unlock it? No. It’s still locking us out for 60 seconds. Some of the locks, if you lock it, unlock it from the inside. So four user codes, 60-second lockout, if you do it three times in a row wrong.

Weiser PowerBolt 1 Deadbolt | Mr. Locksmith Maple Ridge

Weiser PowerBolt 1 FAILS

I am going to remove the batteries and test the battery backup. Now, this is what, the first time we ran across this lock, the customer, the batteries were dead and the lock would not open. And, the interesting thing is you’re supposed to have a nine-volt battery. So let’s disconnect the battery. So, disconnect the battery. What’s kind of interesting is, and quite a few locks have this and some of them work really well.

This is a fresh battery. It’s a Duracell. It’s one we use all the time. Right under the nameplate is, cause there’s no key override so you locked out of this. There we go. Stick my battery on here. Okay. It seems to have a rear proper wedge, a little plus or minus but we can figure this out. Okay? Okay. So it does take, plus goes on that side. This is why I have boxes of smart key locks, smart locks. I got boxes of broken ones, because out of the box. Okay, we’re gonna, this is a fresh nine-volt.

Let’s grab another one. This is out of my alarm kit. So, these are good batteries. So we know we have the plus goes to here. Oh, don’t leave it, leave it running, leave it running. I find this fascinating. My, my camera guy is not liking this, but no no, keep it running. Let’s see. Okay. Just hooked up the battery. Okay. Okay. This is a real test here. So let’s lock it. Let’s disconnect all the, let’s just pretend the batteries are dead, I will disconnect them.

I remove all the batteries the lock is dead. We are locked out. You go there as per the instructions. I take my battery, nothing with that one. This one. Okay. Likes that one. Just in case, here you hold that. press it. It says, wait until it makes a noise when its got the positive on this side. See. It’s crap. And this is why the customers are locked out.

We had, we tried everything. I bought one out of the box. You saw this. I went to the local Big Box Hardware Store. I bought this, hooked it up. Just like our customer had a problem. I could not get it open. I had my nine volts. He was sitting there with his nine volts. We did not, I didn’t wanna, we did not get it open with the battery pack. We did not get it open from the front. And I tried everything. And in the end, what did do? We drilled it off the door. Cause we only got one door going into the pool room. And it didn’t work for me. And I just thought, maybe it was a faulty lock.

It was, it didn’t work. I couldn’t use my batteries. I couldn’t get it to work. And the customer had batteries too. But a lot of times we go to a lockout, the customer’s batteries, we put in our batteries and the customer is using old batteries. And so the lockout, look at this right here in the shop, having fired a round, right out of the box. You saw it, didn’t work. If a Weiser sees this, cause they know I pick on their products a lot. Let’s put, let’s go to Home Depot together, or Rona or wherever you want.

Let’s buy one of these, right out of the store. Okay, we’ll go together and let’s do this. And let’s see if this works. Hey, one more time. Try the other battery. Seems to like that one. How’d you like to be? I am a locksmith. How’d you like to be a homeowner and this is what’s happening to you? And you call me up in the middle of the night, we come out here, sometimes we take our battery or whatever, we open it up.

Weiser PowerBolt Problems

  • Poor Instructions
  • No Batteries Supplied
  • Battery Backup Failed

I don’t feel so bad now. Crappy user instructions, crappy lock. We know it works with the batteries, four user codes, 60-second lockout. This is why I don’t sell this at all. Because of the problems. I ran around, we grabbed a few more nine volts, stole one out of my smoke detector, it still doesn’t work.

In conclusion, I would not recommend this lock and I can see why locksmiths. It must be. I dunno, who knows, but I can’t recommend this, but I can see why it’s, why do locksmiths love these locks, cause we’re going out at night and daytime, and we are opening these. I have a video on my training site on how to totally bypass this, but it does require you to drill the lock and it destroys the lock.

Hopefully, that customer has taken that lock back and got the warranty out of it, cause it doesn’t work. I hope you enjoyed watching this video. Subscribe to my channel.

Sending a locksmith the picture of a key can help us identify the key or lock. This may seem like a silly video, but it’s actually very important. I made the “How to Take a Picture of a Key” to help our customers.

  1. Take an in-focus picture of the key.
  2. Take a picture of both sides of the key.
  3. Remove any tape or obstruction covering the head of the key.
  4. If possible a picture of the end of the key.
  5. In-focus pictures of the key.

Key Copy Near Me

A lot of times customers ask Where can I get a “key copy near me’”  “I need my locks rekeyed.” or “Duplicate Key” and then they try to describe it to me. Sometimes they can, sometimes they can’t, sometimes there’s no information that you can see, but I can see. So, a lot of times we ask our customers “Take a picture, take an in-focus picture of the key.” So we ask our customers, email or just text me, a picture of your key. So this is how to take a picture of your key so I can see what you have. You gotta take both sides of the key. So take a picture there, so I can see what the make is, I can look at some of the grooves and then turn the key over and take a picture again, and then I can see from the other side I know it’s a Schlage, and on this I can see it’s a C123. So I can tell you “Yes I have that key.” So whatever key you have, whether it’s a car key, or house key, motorcycle, whatever, in focus, both sides of the key, then you can email it to me or a locksmith and we can tell you if we have that key.

Sometimes we’ve had people on fishing expeditions up north, they’ve taken their keys with them they’re in the middle up north, in the middle of nowhere, the wife is locked out, they have the key, and this one, we can actually see this one has a code, so we now know we can cut that by code and we can get that person in the house really quick and easy.

In conclusion, silly as it sounds “how to take a picture of a key”, in focus, both sides of the key, text or email, then we can tell you what you have. [email protected]

I have tried them both and they do what they say they are going to do. But what’s interesting, this is the Ring notice on it. But there’s been this doorbell 2nd generation tool has been linked to numerous fires throughout the US and Canada. I don’t know about Canada so much, but I know in the U S. Now Ring has not done a recall on this. They have sent out a notice, and we’ll put the link here on the video saying what the problem is. And it’s an interesting problem. So again, this is not really Ring’s problem. What is happening, and I’ll pull this apart here, is people are, it has a little battery pack and you can chargeable batteries or replace them or whatever. But there’s a machine screw that covers the battery pack. Well, what people who have been purchasing this have been doing, instead of the machine screw, they’re taking the longer wood screw screwing it into the housing, and it goes into the batteries and that’s what’s causing the short or the heating and is causing the fires. They have not done a product recall (update Ring has just announced a recall), and I can understand. You can’t fix stupid. The people are going to you know if you have a machine screw and they throw a wood screw in there is that really their fault that customers are stupid. However, we call it regression towards the mean somebody you’ve got to design stuff so stupid people can’t hurt themselves. So I grabbed this Ring video doorbell that is has a battery pack. And this is generation two which they say is the problem.

Let’s see what we got. Never unboxed this one, this is brand new. So there is the Ring. For simple, easy to do, this one is not expensive. I think they’re blowing them out the door cheap right now. It’s not an expensive doorbell. It’s like 100, $150, but it’s, again, it’s not a recall. They’re just saying, and I always loved they come with a nice little kit here, a little, you know it’s got everything in here to install it quite easily. And this is the one for people who don’t have. You have the battery pack because you don’t have the doorbell wires leading to your doorbell. So this is really good with the battery pack for people who don’t have the wired system to the front door. Here is the little machine screws. So there’s one little tiny machine screw, these three other screws.

It’s well packaged, Well, you know, well-designed like under $150, I think they’re on sale even less. Let’s warn everybody we have a video. The secret to these things really is they want you on the monthly plan. You can’t blame them for that. They wanna make money. This is a good little kit. Oh, even a little level. Oh my goodness, they got a little bit of everything in here. When you install this, with the wired system or the unwired, there are two areas they can make a mistake on. What’s happening is there, people are taking the woodscrew and there’s when they put this on the door, instead of, this is how you slow people down from stealing it. You put in the little screws on the bottom. So there are two little machine screws, go on the bottom. If you put in the two screws, it slows them down. They have to have a Torx, a small Torx. There are two little Torx screws that go in the bottom. Now what’s happening is people are either losing these because when you try, you’re trying to install this upside down and backward, you know, upside down on your door and you’re gonna lose these little screws. Yeah, it’s just a fact of life. You gotta drop them. People are dropping them, losing them. And whether they’re doing is taking the longer screw putting it into the bottom. And they’re tightening that screw all the way into the battery pack. So it’s not really Ring’s fault. So that’s why it’s, there’s a warning out to the public from Ring on this problem. And this is basically, is just basically people who don’t know the difference between a machine screw and a wood screw and people being stupid and forcing this thing. You really got to crank this to go in there and destroy that lock or destroy the battery pack. It’s a good product. I like their products, they’re good. It’s not a, it’s not a Ring problem.

If you have a sticky lock, whether it’s on your house, your business, a padlock, or your car door, a car ignition is different, if you have a sticky lock, there is a couple of solutions you can do.

Never, never put oil, or linseed oil, or motor oil, or sewing machine oil, or even graphite. Graphite, do not put that into your lock. Now, WD-40 is penetrating oil. It’s fantastic for getting a sticky lock unstuck but is not a lubricant.

My favorite for a lock is Tri-Flow, just love this stuff. Put a little spray, it does not take a lot, just put a little spray into your lock and it will be fantastic. Or now you know Lock Saver, there’s Houdini. I don’t have any Houdini handy, but this is my go-to is Tri-Flow. So again, WD-40 for sticky locks. It will unstick it, but it’s not gonna lubricate it. Tri-Flow will lubricate the lock perfectly.

Do not use graphite, graphite is bad for you. It’s not good for the locks. It’s an old way of lubricating locks, don’t do it. So go to Tri-Flow. If the lubricant does not work, it could because your key is old and worn, especially on cars we find that a lot. So cutting you a brand new key to factory code, the lock usually works perfectly after that. So it could be a worn key.

Your lock could be worn and the lubricant may be a temporary fix, but it is not going to fix the problem. You have an old lock on your door or the padlock’s old, it’s worn out, you need a new lock. And sometimes, especially with the Honda ignitions, the high security, sometimes the ignition needs to be, the parts, replaced, and you would need a new key because those things just seem to wear out.

The other issue could be that the door is sticking. So it could be the hinges are dropping, or what really happens, with the change of weather, is the latch, or the deadbolt specifically, is not lined up anymore with the hole. So I have a few more videos on how to fix that. But the way to see if it is the problem is the door frame is open the door and does the key work the lock perfectly? So if the door is open and you can turn the lock perfectly and then when you close the door and it does not lock, then the problem is with your door frame. However, if you open the door, try the key, and it’s still jammed, then the problem is your door.

Locked Out because of a Sticky Lock?

In conclusion, do not use WD-40, oil, linseed oil and do not use sewing machine oil. WD-40 is, a penetrating oil, it’s good but it is not going to lubricate your lock. Use a Lubricant that is meant for locks, Tri-Flow is my favorite. Lock Saver and Houdini are good.

If you have any recommendations, put it at the bottom. So this will help you with sticky locks.

Rekey Old Style Weiser Locks Key in Knobs | Maple Ridge

Rekey Old Style Weiser Locks Key in Knobs | Maple Ridge

Rekey Old Style Weiser Locks | Mr. Locksmith Maple Ridge (604) 259-7616

Lots of these Rekey old style Weiser Locks Key-in-Knobs still in use. Rekeying Locks

Rekey Old Style Weiser Locks Key-in-knobs where extremely popular long, long time ago, it was everywhere in North America. Nowadays we see less and less of them, but it’s still important to know how to rekey it. One of the key parts is identifying it. Basically, it could be a knob like that, different colors, it could be an orbit, circular, just different styles of the rose and how the lock comes out. Now one way of identifying it was, a lot of them have the push and turn lock. So on the inside to lock it, you just push and turn, and then when the key goes in, here, you turn the key, it just turns a little bit. It just pops it out and then the lock is unlocked.

Now one of the big problems of Rekey Old Style Weiser Key in Knobs is when this handle gets old, it just stays in, so the customer’s turning the key, and the key turns but the lock won’t come undone. That’s another issue, on how to get through that, but right now we’re just going to show you how to rekey them. So to rekey the lock is quite simple, there are just two small screws on here. Go ahead and take the knob off. Just loosen it a little bit, loosen the other one. You have to come in on an angle to get it out. I had somebody ask me once, “Do you have a screwdriver that will do this easier?” And I’m going, no, this is the way it is, unfortunately. Again, the brand name is Weiser, they never, we see a lot of Weiser locks now which are actually Kwikset locks, this was never part of Kwikset, so it only says Weiser, Weiser locks. It takes the Weiser key, in a pinch, you shouldn’t do it, but in a pinch you can use a Kwikset key, but that’s not proper. So basically the knob was just lock-in, and what always happens is that little spring in there would just wear out. Now they used to sell a kit, extra springs, but that was back in the day when you did a lot of repairs, and the people would replace the spring. So the lock is very simple. Take it out; now another way of identifying this, how to take it apart, is there are no holes anywhere, to press the retainer in to remove this cylinder, or the knob. In the back here, see how it’s springy? What we have to do to remove this, we have to hold this out, and then, you see when it was locked, the key only turns that far, to unlock the door. When we wanna rekey it, we pull out the rear post, and at basically the five o’clock, 10 to five position, and it just comes out. And you can see here we can take our bible, to put it back together again, we have our bible, we have the little slot there in the knob, so we’ll put it back at 10 to five, that’s the time I call it, hold out the little post again, and you put it in at 10 to five, and basically put it back in. Sometimes it can be sticky, but the biggest problem is just pull that out, turn it, boom. If you don’t have a key, now it gets a little bit more difficult, but again, it’s a Weiser, it’s extremely easy to pick, just pick it to that position, just pick it over, just hold the post out, pick it to the 10 to five position, and sometimes you can push on this a little bit and it will push out the cylinder. Now to rekey it is interesting. Now if you don’t have key, if you have a key you can take it apart, but if you don’t have a key you have to shim it, and again, it’s a Weiser, it’s easy to pick, easy to shim. So we got the cylinder, so to take out the plug, got the little circlip, and I love this, this is Snap-on, it lasts me forever, and if it breaks they give me a new one. Just gently, just open it up just that little bit. Insert your key, turn it slightly, I have an HPC, hollow follower, just fits on there really nice. And it’s five pins. And we have done enough rekeying videos, this one’s lucky, it’s got the, got the code on there, it’s a direct code. We can just pin it up with the lab kit, and then when you put it back in, just make sure you put it on a slight angle and just put the plug back into the cylinder. Take out the key. I am doing this for the camera, but it’s best to put it on your desk flat. I got my little Snap-on tool. Again, don’t go crazy on opening this, and just put it back on. Always test, test, test. Sounds perfect, clips on good. Now I put it in the 10 to five position. Put my bible into the little spot there. And give it a little twist to make sure that the little post has engaged the back of the lock. So again, there are some different methods, this is the simplest, pull out the post, hold it, some people put a pair of pliers on the back, turn it, now this one did come out extremely easy, let me show you a tougher one here. So that one’s really easy. Here’s another one, this is a real old one I got kicking around. Old one with a new insert. How does this one? See, this one’s not coming out so easy. So again, I’ll just push on the post a little bit, there we go. So basically I’m just pushing on that, and it just pushes it out. So this one’s a little bit more awkward and tougher. And it goes in okay. Rekey Old Style Weiser Key in Knobs. Still see them out there, and you could also see different colors and a different knob style, but again, the secret is it’s got the post on the back.
