When a broken lock prevents you from getting into your house
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.
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 my own lock when I notice that it is broken?
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 There's also the possibility that you want to replace a lock that still works fine but has outdated security features.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.
What is the average wait time for repair of a 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.
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.

How locks get damaged
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.
Lack of routine maintenance or cleaning
When you don't clean or maintain your lock, it can succumb to everyday wear much sooner. The opening starts to corrode and fills with various types of debris. WD-40 or a similar lubricant is the best thing to use for cleaning. If you use a cleaner with abrasive properties, it could damage the lock instead.
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.
Key breaking 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.
We offer lock repair you can afford
We believe in being completely upfront with our pricing. The quote you receive from our dispatch operator is the same one you will pay when we hand you your bill. No one likes added fees that they weren't expecting to have to pay.
