im so happy to see that question, no offence to who ask but it just tells me the regionals are getting in a world of hurt where chargeback will be hit all around and put them out of biz and make it harder for people to get in this line of work.

first off if it doesn't pay 35 per door lock don't do it, and if you have kids and a family that need your income to live, don't do it, your better off with Obama to take advantage of what the government has to offer then doing this type of work

I hope this is someone's idea of comedy.

If not you should quit NOW! Not tomorrow or next week. RIGHT NOW!

[QUOTE=chat6541;55108]how do i change locks with out beating the door to heck to get the locks off to put new ones on[/

The way I get into a house depends on what lock is on the house. Most locks can be opened by drilling the screws out or drilling the bible out. Some locks, like schlages, are tougher. Most people don't lock their deadbolts, so a pair of channel pliers and a flat bar is usually what I need to get in a house. Sometimes, you have to tear up the door. I only use tearing up a lock as a last resort. There are a few You Tube videos that show you how to get into a house without messing up the door.

All you other buttholes need to either help or shut your mouths. Everyone has to start somewhere. Many people use this forum for info and advice. All this man or woman is looking for is some advice. We all know regionals suck, and we all know there are hacks out there. Thats a given. All this person wants is advice. So you can help or go start the millionth thread about how regionals and hacks suck.

That's where I was at with it.

I get that everyone has to start somewhere but if someone is not going to google lock picking or look some stuff up on YouTube this business will eat them alive. It's not that I want to be a smart ass it's that this person needs to be careful very careful. I'm just going to guess here but if gaining entry is a challenge taking all the necessary photos is going to be a problem.

I had a return myself just yesterday on a wint. No pic of the hose hooked to the water heater. There was a pick of me hooking it up and of water coming out the hose but no pic of the hose actually connected. So I got to drive 75miles each way back to take a pic. Good stuff!

I hate it when that happens!

Look I'm not trying to be a tough guy, but it seems like every time a newbie ask a simple question, someone has to make a snide comment instead of just helping the person asking the question. Some people on here have extensive experience that could help a lot of contractors. Even something as simple as "How do I get a lock off a door" should be answered with the best of everyone's ability.
