Do you paint your own house? Clean your own house? Fix your own car? Wash
your own car? Do any of your own home reapirs? Mow your lawn? Unstop your
own tiolet or sinks? If the answer to any of the above is yes then you are
no different than the person you're whining at. There are people that do all
those things for profit. You are taking money out of their pocket, you cheap
Stormy tries to learn as little as possible, and he is very successful at
Home Depot trainees make more than Stormy does and it pisses him off. Home
Depot is a successful company with stores all over America, Stormy is an
unsuccessful wannabe locksmith and HVAC tech with a store out of his house.
That pisses him off as well.
You should have hired stormy to do it. After he broke the kwikset, your
door, the frame and probably some other assorted stuff around your house
nobody could call you a cheapskate anymore with what you'd be paying to fix
For locks a locksmith is your best bet, unless you want the cheap F line
stuff like kwikset etc. In general they won't match the box stores price on
A door lock seems like a common enough
None of the low grade locks you find at the local hardware store are all
No. Just the knob locks.
Yes in most places.
If there is a grade 1 anything sold under the Titan name it's news to me.
Titan is a glorified kwikset.
For normal residential use in a glass foor it doesn't matter that much. Get
an alarm and/or use security laminate on the glass so it takes them some
time to smash it.
Newflash: That's what Usenet is for. If you don't like it don't answer the
question. Don't be surprised when nobody answers yours either though.
Be realistic why would anybody pay a service call just to have a $12.99 lock
cylinder reveresed????? My trip charge would be just under 5X what they paid
for the lock. Let the store they came from do it. They sold the lock, let
them provide some customer service.
?????? That was what you already said in the very first reply to this
" Just call a locksmith and be done with it.".
