Schalge & Kwikset Enter the Thunderdome| Rancho Santa Fe Locksmith

Posted on Friday, March 12, 2010 in Uncategorized

LAKE FOREST, Calif. – On March 2, Kwikset Corp. (Kwikset) amended a previously filed patent infringement lawsuit
against Schlage Lock Company LLC (Schlage) for false advertising or “false and misleading claims” involving its
proprietary SmartKey™re-keytechnology.

Kwikset, a leading provider of door hardware and locksets, is alleging that Schlage’s advertising and packaging for
the Schlage SecureKey product contains false and misleading statements – principally that SecureKey products are
“10 Times More Secure” than other lock products.

The suit has been filed in United States District Court for the District of Delaware. In addition to claiming false
advertising, Kwikset seeks an injunction against Schlage for further acts of false advertising, as well as monetary
damages.

Kwikset introduced SmartKey re-key technology in April 2007. Schlage introduced SecureKey in mid-January
2010.

“For more than 60 years, Kwikset has been a leader in the development of innovative residential door security
hardware and technologies,” said Brent Flaharty, vice president, Marketing, Kwikset. “Our primary goal is, and
has always been, the safety and security of our customers. Kwikset will be as vigilant about protecting our rights
to intellectual property as we are about protecting the public.”

Mr. Keyman Has Just Added a new location to our
San Diego Locksmith service area. It’s  in response
to the recent number of calls coming out of the
Rancho Santa Fe region, and the growing number of
Rancho Santa Fe Locksmith price gouging scams.

Rancho Santa Fe is a target for these locksmith
scammers because of the income level of the
city’s occupants. These scammers have saturated the
internet with sites that target the Rancho Santa Fe area,
and surrounding cities. Unfortunately, this has been
happening more and more in the San Diego region
becuase of our high density of hard working\higher
median income families.

If you live in Rancho San Fe or in the surrounding
areas,  make sure your not the next target of this
out of hand consumer scam, and ask the right
questions reguarding your locksmith service.

When calling a locksmith, ask him/her the following questions:

*What is your LCO # (Locksmith License Number)
*Ask them to give you a quote on the entire process (not just how much
the service call will be.)
* When the locksmith arrives ask him/her to see their locksmith license
card, and ask to see their drivers license so you can match the names.
*Verify the same price you were told over the phone, with the locksmith who showed up.

If you following these simple guidelines, you can assure yourself that you will not be the next
victim of the growing number of Rancho Santa fe Locksmith scams.
