    What clamps was it in?

    Card machine Merchant Rentals

    Seems we only had this conversation the other day Peter! I agree that most of these apps are better value for money than traditional terminals now as if you add everything up, you would have to be putting significant amounts through to make a rented terminal more cost effective.
  3. It's crazy that these designer brands don't think about wear and tear. It's almost like they want you to buy another £800 pair of boots...

    Key gauge panelway

    A key checker is often more useful as previously said there are too many profiles now so this will help in finding something appropriate to pass: https://www.sks.co.uk/sks-key-checker Remembering that the blank will often not pass until cut.

    The futura software is in the machine. The tablet just talks to it at the ip address so it may be possible to control it via a pc but most phones and tablets will do it.

    Yale Superior Keys

    It would be better for someone here to do the key as clearly his local places are having to send away for them....

    Crash in 'company' vehicle

    Some years ago one of my security patrols wrote off a parked van. The insurance only offered the owner around £250 as it was an old transit, but effectively this put him out of business (he was a gardener). I (my company) stumped up an extra £800 and brought him a usable similar van from a trader I know just to shut him up and protect the business image as much as possible. A good case for updating your terms and conditions/ driving policy for future. If you had an agreement in place that the employee covers the excess value then this would likely have covered this amount. Doing it in the way you have has saved everyone money so I would suggest at least 50/50.

    Fire extinguisher base

    Absolutely, though that extinguisher will be spent well before a minute passes. Just saying.

    Fire extinguisher base

    Too high, too small and arguably not the best type indoors. Power makes a big f'ing mess!

    Tune of the Day

    I escorted him through the crowd at a concert back in the 90s after he jumped off stage. He was screaming and spraying water over the crowd and doing his thing. When he stepped back on my foot he apologised immediately. One of the nicest "celebs" I ever protected. R.I.P.

    Locksmith needed please

    That's reasonable for a Mech, handles and labour

    Jury Service

    Never been asked yet, but as a director of a security company my plan was always to point out that due to my position there is a good chance I am likely to have had contact with a suspect, or any number of witnesses so it might be a waste of everyone's time..... I'll let you know how I get on if it every becomes an issue!
