Finding a certified, experienced locksmith is no easy task. Sure, dozens of companies out there will dispatch an indifferent "technician" that offers "quick" solutions when you lose your keys. But when it comes to protecting your home and your business, cheap locks and part-time contractors just won't cut it. Arrowhead Lock & Safe stands out as the most trusted name in security solutions and products in Georgia in an industry known for poor service and mediocre locksmiths.

Though home appraisers may disagree, the value of your home isn't defined by the four walls and roofs that cover a property. The real value of your home lies within those walls where your family eats, sleeps, and plays. When it comes to the safety of your family and the security of your valuables, having quality locks installed on your home is paramount. When your home has lackluster locks and minimal protection, the things that you hold closest to your heart are at risk.
That is why having a dependable residential locksmith in Smyrna is so important - to ensure that your home is protected and that your family is safe from intruders.

Whatever your reasons, our team of seasoned locksmiths will come to your home, re-key your locks in an efficient manner, and leave you feeling more secure in your house.
Your home is only as safe as the locks that you have on your doors. As your locks age or when you are the victim of a security threat, you may feel that it's time to install new locks on the doors of your home. This can be long, laborious, and complicated for the average homeowner. For that reason, many clients trust Arrowhead Lock & Safe to handle the hard work for them.

Whether you are interested in electronic or magnetic locks or have been looking to install a password-protected system, our team of experts can help. Contact our office today for a free consultation to learn more about your access control system options in Georgia.
If you are a business owner in Georgia, you have the weighty responsibility of protecting your patrons and securing your businesses' assets. The most common way for entrepreneurs to keep their business safe is by having a commercial locksmith in Smyrna install quality, reliable locks on every entry point of your storefront. But, unfortunately, many business owners take the least amount of effort necessary when it comes to protecting their business.
Whether you own several franchise locations or have a single storefront, it only takes one break-in to make you realize the importance of installing high-quality locks for your commercial property. Sadly, at that point, it's too late - your ability to provide for your family and pay your bills has been compromised. For that reason alone, it's always better to be proactive about your businesses' security rather than reactive.
At Arrowhead Lock & Safe, our commercial door lock services are designed to ensure that your assets and your customers are protecting 24-hours a day, seven days a week. We will always take the time to walk you through your options, explaining the pros and cons of each security solution so that you can make an informed decision. With a wide range of security offerings and a reliable team of commercial locksmith experts on your side, choosing the right security setup is easy, efficient, and affordable.
Installing high-quality door locks for your business is one of the best ways to protect your assets and your commercial property. At Arrowhead Lock & Safe, we offer many commercial door lock options from the best brands in our industry. From reliable maintenance service on your current Grade 3 locks to new Grade 1 commercial door lock installation, our team of commercial locksmiths is ready to help.
If your businesses' locks are old and need proper maintenance or corrective repair services, it's always best to work with a team of experts. From re-keying services to fixing stuck or broken locks, our commercial locksmiths are only a phone call away.
Commercial alarms for businesses are more complex than their residential relatives, and for a good reason. Our cutting-edge alarm systems are great for preventing and interrupting break-ins, notifying the authorities, and act as an important addition to any business that wants enhanced security.
A commercial-grade CCTV system installed by Arrowhead Lock & Safe allows you to monitor all activities that take place under your businesses' roof. Having security cameras installed around your business gives you added peace of mind and evidence for the police if a break-in occurs. Having visible security cameras can also help deter criminals and prevent suspicious activity from ever taking place. With remote monitoring capability on your smart device, you can check in on your storefront any time of the night or day, from just about any location.
Having the ability to control every one of your businesses' locks is a proactive, cost-efficient way to protect your customers and your assets. With a commercial-grade control access system from Arrowhead Lock & Safe, business owners can easily restrict certain areas within their store, prevent physical key duplication, record entry history, and even simplify employee turnover.
Entryways can be especially vulnerable, but Arrowhead Lock and Safe know how to select and install the best doors for your business. When you add remote control access features, business owners can open other structures like motorized fences, large parking gates, and even barriers.
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) grading system was developed years ago to standardize a testing procedure to measure the durability and strength of a door lock. This grading system applies to both residential and commercial door locks. Composed of three different grades, the ANSI grading system gives homeowners and business owners a good idea of lock quality and reliability. ANSI examines six different qualities to determine a lock's grade:
These locks offer the highest level of security and are most often used by institutions like hospitals, schools, and even museums. These locks also have the highest life expectancy, though they can be much more complex and require an expert residential or commercial locksmith in cityname to install. In today's day and age, many more homeowners are opting for Grade 1 locks (like electronic locks) for the most peace of mind. This classification of lock must hold up against 800,000 cycles, six door strikes and a 360-pound weight test.
These locks are great for residential areas with more foot traffic, like a door that leads to an apartment complex or suite of rooms. These locks can also suffice for small businesses that need a higher level of security than Grade 3 locks. Use these locks when you want to secure access to areas with valuable equipment or sensitive documents. This classification of lock requires 400,000 cycles, four door strikes, and a 250-pound weight test.
This grade of lock is best suited for residential purposes and is considered standard door hardware. This kind of lock is the least expensive and should never be used in a high-traffic area like a lobby or storefront. However, these locks would be suitable for areas without much foot traffic like storage closets or areas without expensive merchandise. Because these locks are easiest to bypass, consider upgrading your Grade 3 locks with anti-bump and anti-pick technology. This classification of lock requires 200,000 lock cycles, two door strikes, and a 150-pound weight test.
A famous animator and movie director once said: "The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing." This quote rings especially true when it comes to protecting your home or business with the best security solutions in Georgia.

(Dec. 6, 2022) SMYRNA, Ga. - Like most jobs, the military has its stressors. Fortunately, the U.S. Navy has support programs in place to help Sailors choose healthy outlets, which are key to relieving those stress factors. Because of mental and physical benefits, finding a hobby or healthy activity is encouraged during military service. In fact, the military has the Moral, Welfare and Recreation program dedicated to just that.
From her early youth, Operations Specialist 2nd Class Ashley Mink, assigned to Navy Talent Acquisition Group (NTAG) Atlanta, has used her favourite pastime to release stress and build her confidence. Mink, now 25, played soccer since she was five-years-old. She competed her entire life until she made, the life-altering decision, to join the Navy. Mink said she felt like boot camp and the military lifestyle built on her team comradery and gave her competitive attitude a place to fit in.
Soccer means more to Mink than a healthy way to blow off steam. The sport taught her life-lessons, which helped her succeed in both her personal and professional life as a Sailor. Following basic training and rate-training school for Operations Specialist, Mink checked aboard her first duty station as a Seaman Apprentice aboard USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), in Norfolk, Virginia. Within a few months of checking aboard, she started her first underway. “I was 18-years-old when I joined and I didn’t know what to expect of my first deployment,” said Mink. “All I knew was, I had goals to earn qualifications and rank up [earn a promotion]. I knew my goals would be challenging, but I was eager to start off this adventure on the right foot.”
During her first two months underway an old passion presented itself, in a surprising place, aboard a U.S. warship in the middle of the ocean.
“I found out the ship had a soccer team,” said Mink. “They would practice during their off time and would compete with other ship’s teams to include allied ships in foreign ports!”
After a few practices, Mink became an official member of her ship’s intermural soccer team.
“It felt great to reconnect with my true passion,” said Mink. “I have a true love for the sport and it allows me to decompress and it grounds me at the same time. Over the years it has become a huge part of who I am and I believe it contributed to my successes during my first duty station.”
During Mink’s five year tour, she successfully earned all of her required work qualifications, including her Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist and her Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist qualifications. She was also promoted three times, earning the rank of petty officer 2nd class.
“I’m so thankful for soccer and how it has impacted my life,” said Mink. “It has taught me to work hard and to always give my very best regardless of the adversity I may face or the obstacles I have to overcome. Through soccer, I’ve learned the importance of teamwork, communication and even leadership. These skills have directly translated into my military career as well.”
After completing her tour aboard the USS Truman, Mink was ready for the next challenge. She wanted to help others while also stepping out of her comfort zone. This led to her decision to become a recruiter.
“Recruiters are vital to the Navy’s mission,” said Mink. “They are often the first impression a civilian, candidate or future Sailor has of the Navy. It is a great responsibility to carry and I have made it my goal to provide guidance and to set the proper tone as a positive mentor from day one.”
Mink arrived at NTAG Atlanta in November of 2020, after completing recruiter training at Naval Orientation Recruiting Unit located at Naval Air Station Pensacola. With her tour goals set, she still had uncertainty about being able to continue to use her passion as a tool for her successes.
“Although soccer was not my first priority when I arrived, it was important to me,” said Mink. “I was a little nervous about finding a way to compete during my off time. Once I finally settled in and adjusted to the workload, I found a Facebook group for a league near my station in Hoover, Alabama. The season had already started so I only was able to play a few pick-up games, but this year I started as an official team member in October!”
Mink is now four games into her season in a league consisting of more than 180 players and eleven teams. Although she dedicates 3-4 hours a week to her passion, she is still able to achieve her professional goals. Since her arrival at NTAG Atlanta she has earned a Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal, has been named “Recruiter of the Month” for her command multiple times, and received Division 6 Recruiter of the Year 2022.
“I feel it is important to find a healthy work-life balance,” said Mink. “Staying in touch with yourself and your passions keeps you grounded. I would encourage anyone to have a healthy outlet to help them stay focused on their personal and professional goals.”

NTAG Atlanta’s area of responsibility includes more than 36 Navy Recruiting Stations and Navy Officer Recruiting Stations spread throughout 82,000 square miles of Georgia, Alabama and parts of Florida.
Navy Recruiting Command consists of a command headquarters, two Navy Recruiting Regions and 26 Navy Talent Acquisition Groups that serve more than 815 recruiting stations across the world. Their combined goal is to attract the highest quality candidates to assure the ongoing success of America’s Navy.

Boil water advisories were issued in several counties after a weekend of frigid temperatures caused water main breaks, broken pipes and frozen valves.
ATLANTA — Boil water advisories have been lifted for three out of four counties so far in the metro Atlanta area. Freezing temperatures previously damaged water pipes and valves, causing water pressure to drop in the counties.
The drop in pressure may make water unsafe to drink unless boiled beforehand. 11Alive has put together a list of counties with boil notices in effect.
Around 11 a.m., officials in Butts County issued an advisory following a water main break. They said the advisory will be lifted once a bacteria test is done, which will take 24 hours, according to a Facebook post from the Butts County Water and Sewer Authority.
Friday update: Clayton County Water Authority said it has lifted its boil water advisory after the water was tested and has been deemed safe to drink and use.
A boil water advisory was issued for Clayton County residents after several pipe bursts were discovered in warehouses, businesses, schools and churches. The county is holding several water distribution events for residents as long as supplies last:
Wednesday update: DeKalb County lifted its boil water advisory after state officials approved its water.
Parts of DeKalb County are also under a boil water advisory. The county stated that those affected largely fall under two areas:
The DeKalb County website listed maps of the affected areas. To see the maps, click here.
Wednesday update: County officials lifted its boil water advisory for customers north of S.R. 369. Water quality tests show the water is safe for consumption without boiling.
Forsyth County officials issued an advisory on Christmas Day after water pressure dropped for some residents. Officials believed that one of the water valves froze, stopping the flow of water to one of their systems.
The CDC recommends that water should reach a rolling boil before it is considered safe. If you cannot boil your water, it should be disinfected along with containers filled with water. For more information on what to do during a boil advisory, click here.

SMYRNA, GA. – January 16, 2023 The New Year brings new products to the table from GLOCK, including the first GLOCK Performance Trigger, the expansion of the Gen5 lineup to new calibers, and the introduction of the GLOCK 47 MOS to the commercial market. GLOCK remains the center of trusted versatility and enhanced performance.
“The G47 MOS delivers versatility and dependability for the evolving needs of our customers and has withstood the rigorous testing of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP)“, says Josh Dorsey, Vice President of GLOCK, Inc. „We are excited to make this model available on the commercial market along with the expansion of the Gen5 product line and the GLOCK Performance Trigger.“
The G47 MOS was developed for the United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in 2019. The G47 MOS offers the same reliability and performance as the G17 Gen5 MOS, with a shortened dust cover and maintains parts compatibility with the G17 Gen5 MOS, G19 Gen5 MOS, and G45 MOS. This pistol has the same sight radius as the G17 and is able to showcase exceptional accuracy.
BJ Norris, a 3-year veteran of the United States Border Patrol and member of the CBP National Marksmanship Unit says, „For the agents seeing the shooting team out winning competitions with their duty gun takes away any doubts about performance capabilities.
Due to the highly precise GLOCK manufacturing process, the versatility and interchangability are what makes this pistol unique. The G47 MOS has compatibility with the G19 Gen5 and G45; allowing customers to configure it to best suit their needs. The G47 MOS will replace the G17 Gen5 MOS, while the G17 Gen5 (non-MOS) will still remain in the Gen5 lineup.
Expanding the Gen5 lineup, the G20 Gen5 MOS (10mm AUTO) and G21 Gen5 MOS (.45 AUTO) feature over twenty design changes which distinguish them from their Gen4 predecessors by combining the standards of performance and reliability. The Gen5 enhancements include the GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB) utilizing new barrel rifling to deliver improved accuracy, the removal of finger grooves to be more adaptable to a wider variety of hand sizes, an ambidextrous slide-stop lever to provide improved control and flexibility, an nDLC finish making it a tougher and more durable finish that is exclusive to the GLOCK manufacturing process, and a flared magwell to increase performance by making it easier to funnel the magazine into the magwell.
In addition to the new pistol introductions, we are happy to announce the release of the first GLOCK pistol accessory, the GLOCK Performance Trigger. The GLOCK Performance Trigger was designed to meet a different set of criteria and offers a refined trigger pull. The Performance Trigger utilizes a newly designed, flat-faced trigger and maintains the same safety features of the trusted and proven GLOCK Safe Action® System. The GLOCK Performance Trigger must be installed by a certified GLOCK Armorer and is compatible with the following pistol models: G17 Gen5, G19 Gen5, G19X, G26 Gen5, G34 Gen5, G45, and G47 MOS. To purchase the GLOCK Performance Trigger, check with your local dealer for availability.
