Tuesday:) Toni’s Tip of the Day~ Key” To Success

24 Jan

Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.

~Alexander Graham Bell


I’m always amazing myself at my amazingness. (Is that even a word? Amazingness?) I needed to change the locks on my three doors. I had contemplated calling a locksmith, but I remembered that when I moved into my house, the builder showed me how the Kwikset lock system worked. All my doors had these locks. I didn’t pay much attention, because he re-keyed all the locks.

I decided to do what every clever and inquisitive techno savvy person does. I watched a few YouTube videos about resetting keys for the Kwikset locks. I didn’t need to change the locks, just reset New keys.

Now, here’s the first tip. If you are building a new house, or changing your locks, start out with the Kwikset locks. I looked them up to see if they were expensive. They are pretty darn cheap.

Then, all you have to do is go to the hardware store and buy the Re-Key Kit. It came with four new keys and two temporary keys. I paid a whopping $11.88 with tax.

I was able to change the keys on all three locks in less than twenty minutes.

Another tip, I put a dab of red nail polish on the keys for easier recognition. So now, I have changed the keys on all my doors, all by myself, and it cost me less than $12. I’m pretty sure a locksmith would have charged me a whole lot more.

Yep, I am amazing!

Last tip…have confidence in yourself. You can do anything you put your mind to. Also, don’t forget Google and YouTube videos.
