3 KEY ELEMENTS THAT MAKE A GOOD LOCK SYSTEM

Mul-T-Lock recently launched it’s special Classic Pro cylinder, their new patented security platform. They have been revolutionizing the market now for years with their superior lock grades. One of the experts at Mul-T-Lock provided this brief guide to the most important aspects of home protection. It’s important to first understand that the entire Mul-T-Lock security philosophy involves them basing their cylinders on special patent designs, known as keying systems or platforms. The most important aspects of a quality lock platform, according to the experts at Mul-T-Lock, are:

 

  • MULTIPLE COMBINATION OPTIONS

Each cylinder has a certain amount and range of possible pin combinations that ensures it’s unique security function. By utilizing multiple number combinations within cylinders, Mul-T-Lock gives their customers much higher levels of security, avoiding the possibility of multiple customers buying a cylinder that has the same combination, and thus, the same key.

 

  • PATIENTS WITH LONGEVITY

When keying systems have patents, and a customer loses their key, the customer can only have a new key cut or made by an authorized professional locksmith or dealer – which provides a useful additional layer of security. This basically means that in the lock manufacturing industry, the longer a patent can last, the stronger the amount of security the locks provide.

 

  • HOLDING TO INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS

A quality lock system will help hold to international security standards for protecting you and your property from all forms of risks including burglary, break-ins, lock picking, lock bumping, and forced entry – as well as promising you a level of total uniform precision in all manufacturing standards.

 

The brand new Mul-T-Lock Classic Pro lock technology has a special pateent that will last until the year 2033. It is compliant with the strictest level of international lock standards, provides total key control protection that prevents any unapproved copying, and holds massive resistance to all forms of picking, bumping, drilling, or other break in methods.
