Mr. Locksmith Automotive is reviewing the Hot Wire Automotive Key Programmer. I absolutely love this product. It was one of the first programmers I bought. We use two major Automotive Key Programmer, the MVP Pro and we the Hot Wire.

Hot Wire is it is PC based. It goes through a box and it plugs into the OBDC unit. It’s the most idiot-proof key programmer you can find out there.

The interface is so simple you don’t even need to read the manual. All you do is pick out your year, make, and model and plug it in. Turn the key to run and hit enter. The interface is unbelievably good. I absolutely love this. For beginners or advanced automotive locksmiths.

The MVP Pro is the bleeding edge and can do more autos. However, the Hot Wire is easier, quicker to use but again we had the other day where the MVP Pro wouldn’t program a vehicle, the Hot Wire did it.

In the past, I had two Mustangs side by side, same year, same model. The Hot Wire would program one but wouldn’t program the other. The MVP Pro would program the other unit but wouldn’t program the one that the Hot Wire would do. That’s a constant battle with cars. It happens.

We are making keys to cars every single day. This is what we find and we can’t do without two programmers. Nobody can.

That is why we keep on trying some of the offshore versions just to see how they go. We’re always evaluating them.

Again, if you are starting out and you’re coming into a good standard unit, this is the way to go. It’s simple, it’s easy, it’s to the point, and you can’t make a mistake. You really cannot make a mistake.

I love the tablet-based Hot Wire because it’s all in one unit.

We are subscription based on one of our Hot Wires and one we have purchased the software for the most popular autos.

No matter what anybody says, we haven’t found one key programmer that does everything.

If the manufacturer’s want to disagree, I’m waiting for that holy grail. That one machine.

I wanted some local Honey for my tea and also wanted to try some Mead wine. Mead wine is an ancient “honey wine”, thought by many to have been the first alcoholic beverage made by man. Mead, the drink of the so-called “Age of Gold” in Greece, originated on the island of Crete and was known for its mystical properties. Referenced by the great philosopher Aristotle, mead was often produced by monks in Northern Europe, where grapes were scarce.

One the few places in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland is  Campbell’s Gold Honey Farm and Meadery and is located in southwest Abbotsford adjacent to Aldergrove south of the Fraser Hwy.

They had Mead Wine and Honey Tasting.  I really liked the Merry Mead and the Crofter’s Choice Mead wine. Also, I chose the Campbells Gold Floral – Des Fleurs Canada No 1- Dark Amber Honey. My Mead Wine is now in my Wine cabinet and I already had my first cup a tea and honey on this rainy day.  Tomorrow, Honey and Toast! Again, locally made in Abbotsford, BC.

For further information go to http://mrlocksmithtraining.com/

 

 

This information is typical of a Sargent & Greenleaf (S&G), Ilco, or LaGard Safe Mechanical Group II Combination Locks.

Combination Operating Instructions:
To unlock the safe use the “Opening Index” (located at the 12 o’clock position) on the dial ring for each number. You must dial the combination precisely without backing up.

– Left 4 or more turns to the left (counterclockwise) stopping at the first number “20”
– 3 turns to the right to the 2nd number stopping at “40”
– 2 turns to the left to the 3rd number stopping at “60”
– Right to open: turn the dial to the right until it stops moving.

There are a few safes out there that are R-L-R instead of L-R-L. In that case, you utilize the same procedure except that you would reverse the direction.

Note: See upcoming videos on “forbidden zone,” drop point, opening locked safes, combination lock maintenance, troubleshooting, safe tools and the most important tool to open a safe!

North Vancouver Lonsdale Love Locks | Mr. Locksmith.

For further information go to Mr. Locksmith.

I was visiting Lonsdale Quay Market in North Vancouver and I was pleasantly surprised to Love Locks locked on the fence.

North Vancouver joins other Love Lock locations in Vancouver, Love Lock Sculptures in Queen Elizabeth Park and Burrard Street Bridge.

Burrard Street Bridge in Vancouver British Columbia is an unofficial Love Lock Bridge. City work crews repeatedly remove padlocks from the Burrard Street Bridge. Also, the chain link fence just east of the Plaza of Nations on the False Creek seawall is another location of Love Locks.

A love locks sculpture dedicated to eternal love is now on the lookout above the Quarry Garden in Queen Elizabeth Park, Vancouver, BC.

A love lock or love padlock is a padlock Lovers lock on a bridge or similar public fixture to symbolize their love. Usually, you engrave your names on the padlock, lock it onto the bridge and then throw the keys into the Seine river below to symbolize their unbreakable love.

North Vancouver joins other famous Love Locks locations in Rome and Paris. The Ponte Milvio is a famous bridge in the northern part of Rome, specifically the Della Vittoria district. The bridge became so popular that, despite its strong brick foundation, the city feared it might sink from all of the locks.

People still visit Ponte Milvio to lock their padlock to the bridge and declare their eternal love, today.

Paris actually has two Love bridges, the Pont de l’Archevêché and the Pont des Arts, are probably the most well-known love lock bridges in the World. One bridge is for “lovers” and the other bridge is for “the love of your life.”

Hi I’m Terry Whin-Yates from Mr. Locksmith, and this is the top 10 security tips for securing your business during the holidays

Lock your doors. It’s amazing how many businesses are unlocked after employees leave or you leave. The crooks are shake, walking around, shaking the doors, seeing what’s open. It’s amazing how many businesses are unlocked at night. So lock your doors, secure your windows, and check it make sure everything. It’s amazing how many people do not lock their doors during the holidays or during any time of the year.

Rekey your Locks: When you’re re-keying your locks, it’s a good time to go to a restricted or high-security key and lock system. When you use High Security Locks like Abloy, Medeco, Primus, what happens is the keys are restricted and only for sale at the locksmith’s. You’re not going to be able to walk into the local hardware store with a Medeco key and get it cut by that local hardware store or the shoemaker who cuts keys. When you stamp do not copy or do not duplicate on a common key like Schlayge, Schlage, Kwikset, or Weiser, it’s a waste of time. The local hardware stores have those key blanks, and the little shoemakers on the corner, they will cut those keys. Do not copy, do not duplicate stamped on a key is a waste of time. You have a high-security restricted key blank, they are never ever sold to the local hardware store, or the Home Depots, or anybody except for locksmiths who are security cleared and qualified. They are the only ones with those restricted keys. So get a high-security restricted key system. When you give it to staff, if when they leave or whatever, when they hand you back that key, you know they have not had that cut anywhere.

Alarm systems are not the big deterrent anymore, they were 10, 15, 20 years ago. You could put a alarm sticker on your business, and the crooks wouldn’t bother with your business. However now they’re breaking in. They don’t care. They’re gonna get in quick and get out. But you still need alarm system. The alarm system will scare them off, or at least them know it’s time to go. Alarm systems should be monitored, they’re not as expensive as they used to be. You can get a good quality alarm system and monitored for a very fair price. When it’s monitored the police never show up. No matter what they tell you, unless you’re in a small town, in any of the major cities, a alarm on a business or a home, that’s called into the police is a low low priority. They’re so busy they’re not gonna go out. If you wanna be really secure, you have your monitoring station then contact security guard company or a runner service that when the alarm goes off, for a small fee, they show up at the business, they look inside check the doors. If you’ve been broken into, they call the police. The police will respond to a security guard or a runner service saying in progress or it’s been broken into. They will show up. So a alarm system with a runner service is the way to go.

CCTV: Cameras will not stop break-ins. However they are good for an investigative aid for the police after the fact. And a lot of times these burglars, these criminals are hitting business after business. When the police have video to view, then they have some evidence to tie them to the crime. So it’s an investigative aid. Again it won’t stop crime, but it’s great for the police to use, or even yourself when you’re viewing the video. Sometimes you’re amazed its a former staff, current staff, or someone you know. It’s always amazing when you’re looking at the video and you go, oh shoot I know who they are.

No Cash on Premises: If you have a retail business or a restaurant, take your empty till at the end of the night, and put that till drawer and put it at the front door, if you can look inside. Put it on the floor, put it against the door, say no cash on premises. It is amazing how many businesses leave money in the till. They think oh you have the change, you have a few bills, there’s still usually 20 or 100 bucks which makes a crack-head or a meth-head happy. Take your till, empty it, put it by the front door. Show no cash on premises. That is just amazing. That will slow down the criminals. They have to really want to come in.

Fire safes and Burglar safes are two different things. A fire safe will protect your business records. A burglary safe will protect your valuables and cash. If you’re paying under $300 for a safe, it’s not a burglary safe. Good quality burglary safes are expensive and they’re rated as burglary safes. Too many businesses are going to the local store, buying a inexpensive fire safe, and then throwing money or jewelry in it. It’s amazing what I see inside some of these fire safes. If you’ve seen my other videos, you know the inexpensive safes, fire safes, shouldn’t even call them safes, are super easy to open. And with a crowbar or a large screwdriver, they pop left right center. Don’t put a fire safe to protect your valuables. Realize fire safe is for protecting documents from fire. Get a burglary safe. There’s lots of information on my website and other places to get good quality burglary resistant safes.

Gun Safe: One thing that’s overlooked is a gun safe for your business. Gun safes are big, they’re not that expensive, and you don’t have to put guns in them. They’re huge container that’s very secure, even an inexpensive gun safe. Have that tucked away in the back and put some of your valuables in there. You’re gonna slow down the burglars. They’re gonna get into it, but it just slows them down. Gun safes are fantastic for large items or just a lot of little stuff that’s not really expensive, but you don’t wanna lose. Anchor the gun safe to the floor or the wall or both.

Facebook and Social Media: Be careful. When you go on vacation and you’re putting postings, we’re closed ’cause we’re going to Hawaii, you’re telling every burglar in town that your the business is, no one’s there, you’re gonna be away, they can see how long you’re gonna be away for. I know it’s difficult. We all love our social media, like to post pictures of you on the beach to the people in 40 below with snow, but be careful with your social media, what you’re posting. ‘Cause they’re gonna know the business is closed, you’re away, and also know your home is, you’re not at home either. So be careful with social media, what you post, especially when your extended vacations are away.

So I hope these top ten, I added a little bit more, security tips to securing your business during the holiday seasons has been good and lots of information for you. So I wanna wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
