Rule #8

March 16, 2015
Orangeville, ON (Harold Doan and Sons Ltd.)

Harold DoanIngenuity made our world what it is today. Unless someone had taken the time to dream and look at different possibiities we would not have the marvels of technology we accept as commonplace. Our locksmithing industry came from the same roots. Mechanically minded people with an inquisitive nature form the backbone of locksmithing. All tricks of the trade come from people with an ingenious flair.

Ingenuity can be abused. Mischievousness requires ingenuity, but the ingenuity is misdirected.

The bridge from ingenuity to mischievousness to larceny is rather short. Once someone convinces himself that what he is doing is not mischief but ingenuity, larceny cannot be far behind.

By some unspoken understanding, locksmiths and people in the security field are accepted as being above reproach. There is no security litmus test for persons entering locksmithing. This important responsibility, however, does not occur without a cost. As locksmiths, we must continually realize the position we enjoy with the public. Our image must remain cleaner than clean. (Gibb's rule #8 - Never take anything for granted.)

Harold Doan and Sons Ltd is a professional mobile locksmith, serving Orangeville, Dufferin County and the surrounding area. Call us to help you find good, solid, workable security solutions. Solutions that allow you to proactively protect your premises and the assets on those premises. Better security is part of our Security Solutions package customized to your specific security needs.

Tip of the Week

commercial hardwareWhen it comes to your businesses door hardware needs, The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association (BMHA), recommend two classifications of door hardware: Grade 1 and Grade 2.

The differences between the two classifications are significant. The pulling force needed to separate a knob or lever from its spindle is about 60% greater on a Grade 1 than a Grade 2. Cycle tests of a Grade 1 are double that of a Grade 2. Vertical load and bolt strength factors are similarly greater in a Grade 1 than a Grade 2.
