FAQs

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.

What are some of the indications that it's time to replace my lock?

If your lock doesn't turn as easily as it once did, you have gotten a key stuck in it, or you want to take advantage of newer security features, it's probably time for repair or replacement. Your lock naturally endures wear as you use it every day. The differences in your ability to turn it will seem subtle at first and then become more pronounced. We can repair the lock of your home if you call us as soon as you notice a difference in its performance.

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 have to wait for a locksmith to 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.

Sometimes the problem is as simple as adjusting your lock's strike plate. That is a best-case scenario. The situation becomes more complex when we need to change some part of the lock's interior component. No matter what the issue, the certified locksmiths at We can correct it. In the event that we can't repair the lock, we will help you find the best solution for replacement.

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

 

A lock can become damaged for a variety of reasons. One of the most common things we see is damage from someone attempting to pick a lock. While this can occur from someone trying to break into the home, it's more often a case of someone who lives there trying to get in after losing his or her key.

Lack of lock maintenance or using the wrong cleaning supplies

A lock can become corroded if it's gone many years without cleaning. Unfortunately, using a cleaner with abrasive qualities can be even worse than doing nothing. The best thing to do is use WD-40 or a similar lubricant for locks.

Severe weather

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.

Key breaking in a lock

Breaking a key off in a lock can damage the mechanism of the lock. To avoid damaging the lock further, call us right away for help.
