Someone recently was asking about my business and said 'locksmithing. Nobody uses a locksmith anymore."
I acknowledged that statement with a smile and changed the subject. I'm not in the business of changing peoples opinions. I am in the business of changing codes, combinations, keys and have made a living doing just that for years now.
Locksmiths have been around for centuries and will always serve a purpose in society.
Ancient Egyptian locksmiths used wooden blocks and pegs. The locksmith from the dark ages would make a lock and key system for a king and then be murdered to keep his secrets safe.
Todays locksmith is existing in a crossover mechanical/digital age
People will always need security options whatever technology of the times. A locksmith will be the one offering products and services to fulfill the peoples requirements.
Just as people will always have an opinion. Locksmiths will always be around.
