“It was after 8.00. He called the locksmith in Hedestad and ordered a new lock. The locksmith said that he could come out the following day. Blomkvist said he would pay double if he came at once. They agreed that he would come at around 10.30 that night and install a new deadbolt lock.” It was a plot from one of the famous novels “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” showing the essence of locksmiths.
Locksmith is a person who makes or sells locks and keys, and repairs and installs locks. A locksmith can also open a lock when the owner has lost the key or has become locked out. Now companies are also working as locksmith and the concept is broadening from only lock and keys to installing security systems. They also work efficiently to implement locksmith services for cars including Volvo, BMW, Isuzu, Pontiac, Honda, Nissan, Toyota, Jeep, Ford, Chevrolet, GMC and many others. Considering these auto-technologies and continuously evolving systems, we can say that locksmithing is really a technological field as locksmiths have to move with the new technology.
