Mr. Locksmith Voted Best Locksmith in Vancouver

I purchased from Costco a new XXL Sentry Safe the XX Large Digital Safe. The older version is approximately the same size but only has two bolts. This newer version has six bolts.

I used my Hockey Puck Rare Earth magnet to attempt to open the Electronic Sentry Safe.

You have to be careful using any Rare Earth Magnet. Don’t put it near anything important. Watch your fingers. I was reading one of the recall letters from Sentry and it said a “Canadian locksmith using a Rare Earth Hockey Puck Magnet” opens up their safes, which is extremely unusual. I and many locksmiths have been using magnets to open safes for years.

The new XXL can be opened with a magnet but I think we’re going to need slightly stronger magnet and placement is really, really important. But, we were successful. We opened it.

So, some final thoughts on this safe. It is harder to open with the old style magnets we were using. I’m going to double up and get some more heavy duty magnets but on first attempt it can be opened. The solenoid may have been redesigned. It just requires a little bit jiggling of the handle to open it and I’ll see if I can put a bigger magnet on this or double up the magnets and it should just open the safe right away.

Listen for the solenoid. You hear it click. That, you hear a little click when it comes in and when you release it, you’ll hear a big click so go till you hear the little click. Jiggle the handle. Sometimes it’s right away, sometimes you’ve got to open it up, but they can still be opened with the Rare Earth Magnet. It’s just going to require a big, new, bigger magnet or more fiddling around than it did before.

‘Your children could have died’: Vancouver officer scolds woman for leaving kids in hot car

Always call 911 if you see a pet or person in a locked hot car alone, even if you don’t think it’s hot.


A mother scolded by a police sergeant for leaving her two young children in a sweltering SUV while she shopped for groceries in Vancouver won’t face charges, but the case has been turned over to children’s services.

A video of the visibly upset officer yelling at the woman as she stood beside her Lexus in a parking lot surfaced online Thursday.

“You don’t seem to understand the danger you put your children in,” he said to the woman as she stood with her arms crossed. “The windows were up – it’s hot out. Your children could have died.”

The cop can be heard telling the woman that a fire truck, an ambulance, and two police cars were called to the scene as a result of her actions. The officer also threatened to have the woman’s kids taken into protective custody after she appeared to argue with him.

“You don’t seem to understand what you’ve done,” he said before adding later, “What kind of parent are you?”

Vancouver police Chief Adam Palmer told reporters Friday that the woman will not face charges but that the children’s ministry has been contacted. The children, a girl, 6, and a three-and-a-half-year-old boy, were left unattended for about 20 minutes while the mother shopped for groceries Monday afternoon, Palmer said.

Palmer said police received multiple 911 calls from citizens concerned about two children in distress left in a hot car. They arrived to find the car alarm going off.

The chief said the sergeant in the video is highly respected and has children of his own.

“He was trying to convey to that woman the seriousness of what she’d done with her children.”

In Edmonton, police announced a mother was charged after her baby had to be rescued from a hot car.

Police managed to get the eight-month-old girl out of the vehicle and she was sent to the hospital for treatment.

It was believed the infant was in the car for about 45 minutes on Thursday night. Her mother, 22, who told police she forgot the baby in the vehicle while meeting a friend for coffee, is charged with causing a child to be in need of intervention.

The inside of a previously air conditioned vehicle can reach up to 50 degrees Celsius in as little as 20 minutes of sitting in the summer sun, according to the Canada Safety Council. That’s well above the temperature for heat stroke.

Although there are no national statistics available in Canada, the U.S. reports that an average of 37 children die every year in hot cars, with the majority of them being under the age of three.

Vancouver police also cautioned pet owners against leaving their furry friends unattended inside parked vehicles after they were forced to break into a car to rescue a dog at Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Park earlier this week.

“Our message is don’t leave your pets or your kids in your vehicle when the weather is so hot,” Const. Anne-Marie Clark told CTV Vancouver. “Children should go without saying. Please take your children with you. Don’t leave them in the car. It’s too hot for everyone, pets or people.”

On a hot summer day even in Vancouver leaving your dog in the car “just for a minute” can be a deathtrap. On a 26 C degree day the temperature inside a parked car can soar to between 40C and 50C degrees in just minutes, and on a 40-degree day, the interior temperature can reach as high as 50 degrees in less than 10 minutes.

At Mr. Locksmith New Westminster we have very quick response to 24 Emergency lockouts but if your dog or any dog is locked in a car on a hot day we recommend you call the Fire Department, Police, 911 or safely break the car window.

When a dog is left in cars on warm days, animals can succumb to heatstroke in just minutes. Simon Cowell in his video points out that leaving your dog in your car is a death sentence for them.
