    Default Schedule for service visit

    I am going to be doing a few service visits after a hiaitus of decades. I used to have a tick box schedule so as not to forget anything, but can't find one anywhere. (Having lived in 4 different countries hasn't helped).

    Whereas when I was doing this work frequently I scarcely needed a schedule, I now would like one as my memory is not what it once was. Also things have moved on.

    Does anyone have such a document that he would be willing to share with me, please?

    OK I'll bite. What is a tick box schedule?

    My bad choice of words. It isn't a schedule, it is a list of things to do on a service call and you tick the box as you do each.

    So what is the service performed? And are we talking safes or vault work? Timelock clean and lube?

    The sheet we used to use had separate sections- so say live AEDS, dead AEDs, Timelock etc. They were the same for each door, be it a safe or a strongroom door.

    Maybe I should rotate the wheels on my safes... at least on the ones that are 100 years old.

    I am trying to produce my own sheet.

    Clean and lubricate locks including time locks.
    Inspect AEDs. Check links to locks and adjust for excessive play. (At this stage if one is on nylon, I think I will offer to replace with steel cable with fusible links).
    Check alignment of the door and adjust if necessary.
    Inspect boltwork and lubricate if necessary.
    Check action of all keys, i.e. get your hands on duplicates and make sure they all work.

    One thing we had on our sheet was to check the escutcheon! There actually is/was a British Standard for escutcheons which stated that they should close automatically.

    Does anybody have any wisdom to contribute?
