Need a Lock Repaired? We're Always Available to Help
Did You Come Home to a Broken Lock?
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. Perhaps the lock was fine when you left for work this morning but wouldn't budge when you inserted your key in the afternoon. We understand that you need these problems fixed right away. This is the reason we choose to remain available 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.
Whether it's Murphy's Law or just bad luck, broken locks seem to happen at the worst possible time, which is rarely during regular business hours. Whether you need a lock repaired, replaced, or need help with another common locksmith issue, just give us a call any time to request immediate assistance. A certified and uniformed locksmith technician will arrive to your location in under 30 minutes.
Should I attempt to repair the lock on my own?
Unfortunately, we can't give you a definitive answer to this question without first evaluating the damage to your lock. We do advise against it as a general rule. It might look like a simple job at first but could quickly become overwhelming the further into the repair you get. You can save yourself the frustration and possibly the expense of repairing additional lock damage by calling us instead.
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 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.
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?
The average time we spend on this type of service call is usually less than half an hour. Of course, individual factors play into whether you wait a longer or shorter period of time. Every lock is different, and we won't know precisely how long it will take to repair your lock until we see it in person. However, you can trust our expert locksmiths to work as quickly as possible while still maintaining high service quality.
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 do you recommend I do if I put a key in a lock and the lock 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.

Actions that can damage locks
A lock can sustain damage or break for a variety of reasons. One of the most common things we see is lock damage from someone trying to pick it. This could be due to an attempted break-in, but it's more likely that a family member forgot a key and tried to get in the house, car, or garage without one.
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
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.
