Medeco Patented Lock Systems Explained
January 14, 2014
To ensure your security, authorized dealers can only service systems they originally installed.
As an authorized dealer for Medeco security products, we’ve recently received several calls with questions and confusion about changes or repairs for their Medeco locks, and we wanted to take a moment to clarify how the Medeco system works to ensure the highest level of safety and security for your property and people. In addition to excellent craftsmanship and quality, Medeco brings one of the highest levels of security to users via their Patented Protected Keyway system. This system ensures that your keys cannot be duplicated or your locks changed without proper authorization. Not only does it mean that consumers cannot make changes without authorization – but it also means that no other dealer/locksmith can work on the locks. Medeco authorizes only a select number of businesses to handle their products – and EACH authorized dealer is given a unique, patented line of locks, key blanks and key cutting machines. While this can lead to temporary inconvenience if an authorized dealer would happen to go out of business, it also is the only way to assure the highest level of security for you. If you happen to have a Medeco lock that was installed in the past by a different dealer and would now like to work with Lappen, we would be happy to do so. We will simply swap out your old cylinder for a new Medeco (patented to Lappen) system ($85 each). From that point forward, you will enjoy the same great Medeco quality and security - along with Lappen’s great, reliable customer service. If you have questions or would like to have some work done, feel free to contact us at (920) 734-3027.
