Electro-mechanical evolution makes ongoing training for locksmiths more important than ever

* Allegion1.jpgSurge in electro-mechanical hardware and integrated building systems means locksmiths need ongoing training in more areas than just the mechanics of the locks, says Allegion UK Commercial Leader Pete Hancox.

In the UK, locksmiths come from all walks of life, taking a variety of routes to join the trade. Ask any locksmith about how he or she got started, and then go and ask another, and you will more than likely get two different answers - whether it was via supplier-led training courses, a locksmithing apprenticeship, being an understudy to a practicing locksmith or through traditional employment.

Israel: Thursday biggest night for locksmiths, poll shows

Thursday night is Israel's big night out - and the biggest night for Israelis to get locked out, according to data from "The Professionals," an organization that provides a platform for independent tradespeople like locksmiths, plumbers, and electricians to offer their services. Fully 25% of the "lockouts" - instances in which people lose their keys and are unable to get into their homes - occur on Thursday nights.

That's probably due, the group said, to the fact that more people go out on Thursday nights. When people get locked out, they call a locksmith, and hence Thursday night is the busiest one for workers of that profession. Between 10% and 15% of lockout calls occur on Sunday through Wednesday nights; Saturday night was the least busy for locksmiths. Throughout the week, most lockouts occur in Tel Aviv, which is fortunate, as about a quarter of Israel's locksmiths are based in the city.
