But…

There are a few interesting tidbits that only a few know about locksmiths.

Here are 3 fun facts about locksmith services throughout the years:

Harry Houdini Started as a Locksmith

Not many know that Harry Houdini himself started out as a locksmith. At age 11, he began work at a local locksmith service. He quickly realized that he had a talent for picking any lock he was presented. He took this talent and harvested it into a valuable magic skill that shocked people across the world. How else do you think he was able to pull off those tricks?

Locksmiths Start as Apprentices

Locksmithing is skilled work. Mastering this skill takes years and years of practice and observation. That’s why all locksmiths start off as apprentices. To become a seasoned locksmith, apprentices must learn the skillful practice from an experienced mentor. So, although a college degree isn’t required, locksmiths are still very well trained in their craft.
