Frequently Asked Questions
Is it possible for me to fix my own broken lock?
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.
Our company has been a proud member of this community for many years. During that time, we have developed a reputation as locksmiths you can trust. We will be honest and let you know if we're able to fix the lock or if you should replace it. For the latter option, we will help you choose just the right lock according to your security needs and style preferences.
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.
Putting too much pressure on a lock to force it to open is one of the biggest reasons that locks break. Another is that the lock has just worn out over the years. Experiencing resistance when you attempt to open a lock is a sure indication that it could break soon.
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.

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 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 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
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.
