Need a Lock Repaired? We're Always Available to Help
Did You Come Home to a Broken Lock?
When you need lock repair, We are there for you at any time of the day or night. We employ a team of skilled and experienced locksmith technicians that can repair any type of lock. No matter what service you need, you can count on our team to deliver.
There is never a convenient time to experience a broken lock. You may fear that someone tried to access your home or that it will be easier for them to do so when your lock isn't working right. The situation can become even more stressful when you encounter a broken lock at a time that many other locksmith companies are closed. Fortunately, We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to respond to your home locksmith needs.
Should I attempt to repair the lock on my own?
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.
We are a trusted local locksmith because we put ourselves in the position of our customer. We wouldn't want to wait for a long time outside or pay a high cost to repair a broken lock and we don't think you should have to either. It's always our goal to save your lock, but we will discuss all options for replacement with you if that isn't possible.
How will I know when it's time to replace a lock?
When you insert a key into a lock, it should go in smoothly without you needing to place extra pressure on it. It should also turn easily in both directions. It could be a sign that replacement is near if one or both of these things don't happen. There's also the possibility that you want to replace a lock that still works fine but has outdated security features. We are happy to help you assess the situation and make a recommendation that takes your personal circumstances into consideration.
Exerting strong pressure on a lock is the top reason that people call us for repair services. Other times, locks simply become more fragile due to the passage of time. Besides a key that moves slowly when inserted into a lock, you can tell that the lock is getting old when you experience greater resistance in opening the door. Our locksmiths would be happy to evaluate your lock and let you know if replacement is a good idea.
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.
Is there anything I can do about a lock that won't turn after I put my key into it?
We recommend that you contact us right away when your key doesn't turn because there's a good chance the lock requires replacement. If you have a can of lubricant available, you can try placing some in the key hole and then insert the key again. This may work temporarily. However, we still urge you to have one of our professional locksmiths repair the lock so you don't keep running into this problem. The lock may need replacement if it won't turn after lubrication, but we won't know this for sure until we assess it.

Actions that can damage 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.
Not cleaning or maintaining the lock
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.
Weather that's out of the ordinary, such as extreme cold, heat, or excessive rain, can cause damage to a lock. It's always a good idea to check the condition of your locks after severe weather in your area.
Parts of a key breaking off 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.
