Carbine Locks

Carbine - The next generation in locking

Carbine is the next generation in locking. Carbine is a high-end brand of locking that is chosen by locksmiths. Carbine comes in a commercial and a residential series.

Until Carbine, developments in mechanical locking systems had been few and far between. Even when a locksmith saw a way of improving a current series of locks, there was little desire on the part of the manufacturers to change what 'always has been the way'.

Carbine pushes the boundaries and looks to solve the problems that have dogged the industry for years.

Security Tips

The number of robberies committed on Australian residential properties was estimated by the Australian Bureau of Statistics to be over 220,000. That's one every two minutes!

Here we provide some useful and handy hints to use around your home or workplace, that could prevent you from becoming one of the statistics. They are not meant to be comprehensive security measures for protecting your property, but will help to limit the risk of your home or workplace being broken into.

The best deterrent is being prepared. Make it difficult to get in.

  Make sure all doors and windows are locked.
  Install deadlocks on all doors.
  Change locks or cylinders when you move into a new home.
  Never give keys to a workman, except for your locksmith of course!
  Install key operated window locks.
  Have good exterior lighting under eaves.
  Don't leave ladders and tools lying around, or in an unlocked toolshed - padlock it.

44% of people identify household break-ins the most often, when asked to identify crime-related problems in the neighbourhood.

General precautions.

  Photograph your paintings, antiques and other valuables.
  Don't let unauthorised people in.
  Make a note of the serial number of all your appliances.
  Have valuables engraved with your driver's license number.
  Don't put identification on a key ring.
  Never leave notes on your door.
  Install a door viewer to check unexpected visitors.

An automatic deadlatch is a burglar's nightmare. It's one of the strongest, safest, deadlocks ever made.

If you're out, or away.

  Lock the house, garage and shed.
  Leave outside lights on night.
  Arrange curtains and blinds in normal open and closed positions.
  Ask a neighbour or friend to keep an eye on your house.
  Shut your garage door and padlock it.
  Advise your local police if you will be away for any length of time.
  Re-direct mail, and ask a neighbour to clear your letterbox regularly.
  Cancel newspapers, milk, etc.
  hang some washing on the line to give a lived in look.

Over 50% of thieves enter through windows. Always make sure that your bathroom window is closed or locked. This is the window that people usually don't pay attention to because it is so small, but it's just the perfect opportunity for burglarsll
