Summer Fun Facts


1. The Dog Days of Summer refers to the weeks between July 3rd and August 11th. They are named after the Dog Star (Sirius) in the constellation of Canis Major.

2. Watermelon is the summer's favorite vegetable. Yes, vegetable and not a fruit. It is part of the cucumber, pumpkin, and squash family. Fruit or veggie, this juicy favorite is 92 percent water and the average American eats 15 pounds of watermelon a year

3. Summers spent throwing a Frisbee back and forth owe their game to a pie maker named Mr. Frisbee.

4. The first bathing suits for women came out during the 1800's. During this time, it was improper if your skin was anything but creamy white. These suits were long sleeved bathing dresses with bloomers under them. The only swimming a woman did was wade in the water and jump waves.

5. Here's a fun experiment to try if you want to find out what the temperature is and don't have a thermometer. The frequency of a cricket's chirps fluctuates with the temperature, so if you count a cricket's chirps for 15 seconds and add 37, you will have the approximate outdoor temperature (in Fahrenheit).

6. Mosquitoes have been around for 30 million years. They can detect mammals from 100 feet away especially warm-blooded creatures (that's why they love human!!)  And they have visual sensors that detect movement and contrast in colors. 

7. The average American eats around 5 1/2 gallons of ice cream a year.  July is the National Ice Cream month because it is the month the most ice cream is sold.

8. Popsicle was invented by accident by an 11-year-old boy named Frank Epperson in 1905.  He accidentally left a mixture of powdered soda and water, with a stirring stick, on his porch, and awoke the next morning to find a frozen pop!  Cherry flavor popsicle is the number one favorite flavor.

9. According to Forbes, the top 9 most hazardous summer injuries are caused by

1) playground equipment

2) skateboards

3) trampolines

4) lawn mowers

5) amusement attractions

6) non-powder guns, BBs pellets;

7) beach, picnic,camping equipment

8) barbeque grills,stoves, equipment

9) trimmers, small garden tools. 

10. Before the Civil War, schools did not have summer vacation. In rural communities, kids had school off during the spring planting and fall harvest while urban schools were essentially year-round. The long summer holiday didn't come about until the early 20th century.

11. The most dangerous time to go to the hospital is during the summer, especially July. The most experienced medical residents graduate and leave hospitals in July, just as new physicians (or last year's medical students) arrive. Death rates increase between 8%-24% in July.


12. Contrary to popular belief, crime rates do not increase during the summer. However, the types of crimes change as the seasons change. For example, during the summer, bike thefts and items stolen from cars increase. During the winter, criminals are more likely to steal cars and Christmas presents left in cars.

13. Before the Civil War, schools did not have summer vacation. In rural communities, kids had school off during the spring planting and fall harvest while urban schools were essentially year-round. The long summer holiday didn't come about until the early 20th century.

14. In the United States, the top 5 most popular summer vacations are

1) beach/ocean (45%),

2) a famous city (42%),

3) national parks (21%),

4) a lake (17%)

5) a resort (14%).

Key Control Systems


How many people have keys to your business... that you're aware of?
30% of all business thefts and burglaries are accomplished using a duplicate key!  Unauthorized key duplication can be made at most retail discounts stores, swap meets, carwashes or by anyone who has a key duplicator and the correct key blank.
Dangerous to your business..
DO NOT DUPLICATE or DND stamped on your key is the equivalent to a keep off the grass sign. Both announce the owner's desire... but neither are enforceable!



If your employees have the need to carry keys to your business, chances are that someone at some point for whatever the reason will have a duplicate key made to your business without your knowledge; especially if the key goes to something of value or importance. We know this from experience because rekeying businesses that find themselves in a situation where losses and missing products are unaccounted for is a fair part of our business.

 So if you didn't sell it or use it and it's not on the shelf...well chances are very good that someone carrying an unauthorized key gained access to that area and helped themselves to it...happens all the time! The good new is that we can help you eliminate that problem.

Today there are key control products that will prevent unauthorized key duplication that should be considered the next time your business needs rekeying. 



Medeco's Approach


The security of any locking system is dependent upon two very important

factors. The first is protection against attacks such as picking, drilling, bumping and forcing. The second is

the ability to control duplication of existing keys. Historically, unauthorized key duplication has played a major role in compromising

even the most sophisticated security systems.

Anyone with even temporary access to original keys has no problem getting duplicates made for their own use if the keys and key blanks are not patented protected. Even stamping "Do Not Duplicate" on a key merely warns someone not to copy the key - it is not a promise of legal protection or enforcement. The only way to ensure that keys cannot be copied without the consent of the owner is a key system with patented protected key.


Medeco has counteracted the key control problem by doing three things:

1. Medeco manufactures cylinders which use keys that must be made on special key cutting machines. These machines are capable of reproducing the angled cuts and critical tolerances necessary to produce a workable Medeco key, and are not found at general hardware stores.

2. Medeco sells its high quality, precision machined cylinders and locks only to security industry professionals along with a binding agreement. Every restricted Medeco key blank is custom coined and tracked by Medeco to identify it as an authorized key blank which

protects against unauthorized copies.

3. Medeco invests heavily in research and development to establish strong patents and legal agreements to protect its locks and key blanks from unauthorized distribution or manufacture. In this way, Medeco can litigate to protect its rights and the security of its customers.


A Key Control Program That's Right for You

Not every user has the same key control needs. That's why Medeco has designed different key control programs and different keyways to meet a wide range of security specifications and key access requirements.


Dealer/Service Center


This program offers instant local access to additional keys with protection from unauthorized copying. Consumers simply return to the security provider from which they purchased the locks. This security professional will have a signature card on file completed by the owner of the key system at the time the system was installed.


Card Programs

Authorized individuals are issued a card with embossed control data and a space for their  signature. To obtain key duplicates, card holders present the card to any participating Medeco security professional.  The data and signature will be verified and a key can then be issued. A card program is ideal for residential or businesses that need keys available nationwide.


End User Program

The End User program is for large facilities that have their own locksmith on staff and that want to produce Medeco keys themselves. This program offers individualized control over key duplication procedures.


Commercial Program

The Commercial Program is designed for users who use Medeco locks primarily for protection against picking, drilling and other forms of physical attack. Keys may be obtained from any Medeco locksmith without specific  authorization.


 Factory Program

Additional keys are only available from the Medeco factory and only with the proper signature.


eCylinder Systems

eCylinder systems allow the end user the ability to control their own system to electronically change access to any cylinder or key onsite and obtain audit information. An in-depth discussion of the eCylinder will be for another time.
