Frequently Asked Questions
Should I attempt to repair my own lock when I notice that it is broken?
It isn't always possible for us to answer this question without knowing the extent of the lock damage. We are happy to evaluate your lock and answer that for you, but it's usually better just to have a certified locksmith handle the situation from the start. When you don't have locksmith training and experience, you could end up damaging the lock further and will need to replace it.
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.
What signs should I look for to know when 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.
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 have to wait for a locksmith to repair my lock?
We typically spend 20 to 30 minutes repairing a home, garage, or auto lock. However, your wait may be longer or shorter depending on the unique properties of your lock and the extent of the breakage. We can give you a better time estimate once we arrive at your location and can evaluate these issues for ourselves. The locksmith technicians respect your time and will have your lock issue resolved 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?
Your lock may need replacement if this happens. We encourage you to call us right away and we will come to evaluate the situation. While you're waiting for a locksmith to arrive, try spraying lubricant into the key opening if you have any. This may or may not allow you to open the lock. Even if it does, it's best to follow through with having us evaluate the lock. You can consider it an early warning that the lock is beginning to malfunction.

Actions that can damage 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 routine maintenance or cleaning
The key hole of a lock can become filled with dirt, debris, and everyday corrosion. It needs occasional cleaning to ensure proper functioning. However, some people don't realize that using an abrasive cleaner will cause further damage. A lubricant such as WD-40 is ideal for cleaning a lock.
Excessive heat, cold, rain, or wind can all take a toll on your lock. This is something that many people fail to consider. We recommend always checking the condition of your locks whenever you might experience any weather extremes.
Breaking a key inside of 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.
