Frequently Asked Questions
Should I attempt to repair my own lock when I notice that it is broken?
We can better answer this question when we arrive at your home and assess the damage to your lock. Generally, our opinion is that it's always best to call a professional locksmith rather than risk doing additional damage to your lock. It's only in a small number of cases that a homeowner can repair his or her own lock.
You can trust our years of experience working with all types of broken locks as we evaluate and repair the damage to your lock. In situations where we can't repair the lock, we will advise you on your various options for replacement as well as help you select the one that works best for the security and dEcor needs of your home.
How will I know when it's time to replace a lock?
One of the most obvious indications of a failing lock is when you place a key in it and it doesn't turn as easily as it once did. You may also need to replace it if anyone broke a key off in the lock or if you simply want to upgrade for better security features. Like everything else, locks wear out with everyday use. We recommend replacement once you experience a noticeable change in ease of opening the door. This can help to prevent an emergency later.
An excessive amount of external pressure is the most common reason that locks need repair. Other locks will require replacement because they have changed from sturdy to fragile over a period of many years. In addition to moving more slowly, an older lock will produce greater resistance than a newer lock does. This is a good indication that the time to replace it is drawing near.
How long will I need to wait while you repair my lock?
We typically quote a service time of 20 to 30 minutes. However, keep in mind this can vary considerably in either direction due to the fact that no two locks are exactly alike. We can't state a time with complete certainty until we arrive at your location and assess the damage to your lock. You can feel confident that we will work efficiently and get you back into your home as quickly as possible.
Repair jobs that fall on the lower end of our time estimate include things like adjusting your lock's strike plate so it opens more efficiently. If we need to do something more complex such as adjust an interior part of a lock, that will take longer. The good news is that every member of our locksmith team has the education and experience to respond to any type of lock repair need, whether it's minor or an emergency.
What should I do if I place my key in the lock and it won't turn?
A key should always turn after insertion into a lock. If it doesn't, that is a good sign that you need to contact our company to request lock repair. You may be able to get the lock to turn so you can access your home by placing lubrication in the key hole and then attempting to open the lock again. While that will take care of the immediate problem, it's highly likely that your lock still requires repair. If the lock still won't turn after you lubricate it, it has probably encountered a malfunction. That doesn't necessarily mean that you need to replace it immediately. Our locksmith technicians will survey the damage and let you know if repair or replacement is the best course of action.

Common causes of damage to locks
Many reasons exist for a lock to sustain damage. We have found that the most common one is the attempt to pick a lock. This usually occurs when someone forgets his or her keys and tries to gain access without one. It could also happen due to a burglary attempt.
Lack of lock maintenance or using the wrong cleaning supplies
When you don't clean or maintain your lock, it can succumb to everyday wear much sooner. The opening starts to corrode and fills with various types of debris. WD-40 or a similar lubricant is the best thing to use for cleaning. If you use a cleaner with abrasive properties, it could damage the lock instead.
Excessive heat or cold, flooding, and storm damage are all common reasons for lock damage. You may find that your lock no longer works properly after just one severe weather event.
Parts of a key breaking off in a lock
When a key breaks into two or more pieces, some parts of it can get stuck in a lock. This can have a big impact on its functioning. If you break a key in your lock, please contact us for assistance rather than try to extract it yourself.
