How to get a metal shutters to work in a Mastic shutter
By putting a Maserati shutter under the seat, you can make a garage door look like it is made of metal.
The first-of-its-kind installation by a professional locksmith has been a hit with garage owners across the country.
“It’s really cool,” says John Fagan, owner of the locksmithing company Mastic in Portland, Oregon.
“The way you lock the door is by putting a metal plate under the door, so it looks like it’s made of steel.
You can get a really great look at how the door will actually open.”
The Mastic design comes with an attached lock with an integral screw that you can push to open or close.
The screw can also be pushed back on the other side to make it fit the door properly.
“We use a bit of metal to make the plate for the lock, and we use that to attach a screw to it,” says Fagan.
“And we use a couple of nuts and bolts on it, to secure it to the door.”
You can buy Mastic locks online from retailers such as Amazon, eBay and Bed Bath & Beyond.
But the real beauty of the system is that it can be done by anyone.
Mastic offers the locks as a two-piece, one-piece and four-piece package.
A one- or two-part package is ideal for people who are not familiar with metal locks, because you can choose to have the screws used in the one- and two-parts, or you can get the four-part and use the screws in the two- or three-parts package.
Fagan says he’s been doing this for two decades, and it has paid off.
“There have been many, many customers who have used this,” he says.
“They say it works great, and they think it looks great, too.”
In a video that accompanies the installation, the locks are clearly seen moving with a click.
The installation takes about five minutes to complete.
“I’ve seen it work for all of the different styles of garage doors, from small doorways to large ones,” says Mastic’s website.
“A lot of people have told me they have used it and are very satisfied.”
But not everyone will be pleased with the result.
The Mastsmiths Association, a trade group for the locks industry, says it will not accept Mastic products, including its three-piece metal shuttles.
“This installation is clearly not safe for the average homeowner or contractor,” the association said in a statement.
“Mastic has been criticized by several experts for their faulty locks, which have been shown to fail on all types of hinges, and have been found to be unsafe for the public.
Mastsman has also had a reputation for not offering safe locks, despite being a leading manufacturer of the industry.”
“I have not found one Mastic lock that I have used to work, nor has anyone I know,” says Robert Kowalski, founder of the lock-making company Kowalkeys in New York City.
“If they were doing this correctly, you wouldn’t have to put a Mastics locksmith on the job.”
The locksmiths association said it would be reviewing the design, testing it and reviewing the manufacturer’s warranty.
It also said it was reviewing Mastic sales of the product, and was taking legal action to prevent Mastic from selling it.
The association says it was not involved in the installation.
The locks are sold online through Amazon.
The makers of Mastic says that it is aware of the association’s criticism and is reviewing the product’s design.
“All the designs that we have designed for garage doors have been reviewed and validated by independent, licensed and certified locksmith services,” a spokesperson said.
Mastics has been making locks since 1986, and says it sells more than 10,000 per year.
The company also says its two-year warranty covers the cost of each new lock.
It says it has had “zero complaints” about the locks since its inception.
Fagans experience with the Mastic system began in 2011, when he had just purchased a new garage door.
“So I got to thinking,” he said, “what would be a good way to make a big garage door for my garage?”
The solution was to get rid of the door’s hinges and the door latch.
“My garage door is a very heavy-duty, very rigid door,” he recalls.
“One of the things that I had to learn to do with this garage door was that it had to have a locking mechanism.
And then I started thinking about how you could attach a locking screw to the hinge and use that screw to attach the lock to the garage door.”
“What we did is, we got a Masersa, and then we started to play around with different ways to
