Although we normally focus on Technology, I love handy DIY tricks, so I thought I’d share this little adventure I had a few days ago.
Recently I moved into an older home and found the mailbox key had issues opening the lock. After a few weeks, the mailbox key refused to open it. Great! No matter what I tried (graphite powder and spray included), after a few days of not being able to get my mail, I knew it was time to replace the lock.
I started the adventure by calling my local post office, and that was a waste of time. They suggested a local locksmith and hung up on me. Yelp pointed me at a local locksmith who quoted me $250 for an onsite replacement plus an additional $150 an hour after 30 minutes.
So yeah, you can guess the path we’re going to take on this one. Time to get medieval on the mailbox lock!
