When a broken lock prevents you from getting into your house
It can induce a sense of dread when you come home and see that the lock on your house or garage is broken. You naturally worry that someone tried to break in.

This is the reason we choose to remain available 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.
No one plans to have a lock break, especially when it's late at night and you can't get into your own home. Those factors alone can produce a lot of anxiety, especially when you're concerned about finding a locksmith company that's available to help you. We will dispatch a locksmith to your location within minutes of your call to us. Just call our residential locksmith division whenever you find yourself in a situation of needing immediate lock repair.
Frequently Asked Questions
Should I attempt to repair the lock on my own?
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?
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 There's also the possibility that you want to replace a lock that still works fine but has outdated security features.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.
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.
What is the average wait time for repair of a 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.
The repairs that take the least amount of time tend to be easy adjustments such as moving the strike plate of your lock to a better position. A more complex job would consist of something like changing an interior part of the lock to get it to work correctly. Whether your job is simple, difficult, or somewhere in between, we are here to help you 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Just Call us and someone will be at your location in 30 minutes or less.
What should I do if I place my key in the lock and it won't turn?
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.

How locks get damaged
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 routine maintenance or cleaning
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.
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
If a key breaks when you insert it into a lock, some of its pieces can remain lodged in the lock. This will typically cause the lock to open slowly or not at all. Extracting a broken key requires specialized training and equipment. We advise you to resist the urge to try to pull out the key yourself and to call us instead.
