When people think about break-ins they think about a front door being smashed in and all their property being stolen. People rarely consider just how vulnerable their mailbox is to crime. Protecting your mailbox is just as important as protecting your property from crime. In Richmond, most mail is delivered into wall mounted mailboxes. These mailboxes are in open spaces with a lot of traffic passing through. Having your mailbox lock changed is a simple yet necessary way to protect yourself from crime.
It is easy to have your mailbox lock changed! Wall mounted mailbox locks are incredibly simple. Most have between three and five small wafers inside which matches the corresponding key. The lock is held in place by a small C-clip which applies pressure against the back of the door. When we replace your mailbox lock, we remove the pre-existing lock and replace it with a new one. If you are locked out of your mailbox, we can quickly drill or pick the lock open to grant you access and begin replacing the lock. The old keys will no longer work and you will get a new set of keys that will work.
This is the only way to guarantee access control. That means knowing exactly who has keys to your mailbox and access to your mail. You should replace the mailbox lock with each new tenant and every time you lose your keys, wallet, or purse.
