8 Reasons to Change your Locks - STAT

March 27, 2012

In NYC, it seems like we’d rather change apartments than have to transfer trains. It’s easy to get lazy and put off changing your locks in a new place, but for many New York City apartments, there are about a millions reasons you’ll want to get this taken care of fast.

If you just moved and are living alone, there’s all the more reason to refresh your NYC apartment door locks. And if you’ve got a new roommate, sometimes there’s good cause to get a privacy lock for your bedroom door.

The following reasons to change your locks ASAP are all cases we’ve seen— some more times than we can count!

  1. 1: Your super tried to give you a real nice hug the other day.

  2. 2: Your ex is crazy. You always knew that, but love makes you do silly things -- like give them your keys right before breaking up.

  3. 3: Because your building was built in 1890 and still has the original locks. You often get locked out even when you have your keys.

  4. 4: Cause last Saturday you woke up and there was a strange dude sleeping on the couch. When you screamed and woke him up, he told you that he forgot he didn’t live here anymore.

  5. 5: Because then you realize eight different people have lived in your apartment in the past two years, and you just know they all still have keys.

  6. 6: For pet preservation: your roommate got mad and held your cat hostage for two days. (Yes even this one's true.)

  7. 7: Because you just noticed that there seems to be an awful lot of traffic in and out of the apartment next door.

  8. 8: You got a roommate off of Craigslist and she turned out to be a total klepto. You can keep the underwear you “borrowed,” thanks.

If any of these ring a bit too true for you... give us a call!
