Frequently Asked Questions
Why do we have to replace my lock instead of repairing it?
While repairing a lock may seem like a less expensive option, sometimes there is no choice but to change the locks completely. If none of the internal components have been damaged, it might be possible to repair it, but if the lock is damaged beyond repair, you will need to replace it.
However, if your lock has sustained major damage, it must be replaced. Our locksmiths will be able to give you an answer after they have surveyed the damage.
No matter what the circumstances, let our locksmiths give you their professional recommendation on whether to repair or replace.
How long will it take to replace my lock?
We pride ourselves on prompt service. The qualified locksmiths at We can usually change a lock in as little as 20 to 30 minutes. The exact time depends upon the lock that was damaged and the lock you want to install.
It will take much less time if you decide to simply swap out the old lock with the same model. The door is already adjusted for that kind of lock, so it's a quick installation process. If you want to change the kind of lock you use, it could take a little more time. But not to worry, our locksmiths can easily make the minor alterations required to accommodate the new lock of your choice.
Will my door be damaged in the process of changing locks?
Almost never. The qualified locksmiths have the highest standards and work carefully to make sure your door maintains its current condition.
Do I need to change my door if I want to replace my old lock with a smart lock?
A smart lock might be a great option for you. It's usually an easy switch to change out locks using a smart lock. These types of locks employ combinations and pin pads, rather than relying solely on keys like traditional locks.
These smart locks also offer great flexibility. If you happen to forget the combination, it's a cinch to reset it. That is a lot easier than having to rekey or change locks in the event of lost keys. But if you still like using a key, there are models that allow that as well.
How do I know the time is right for a lock change?
If you have reason to think that your lock has been damaged, or if it is not functioning properly, contact us for an assessment. Our locksmiths can identify the problem and advise you whether it can be fixed or if it should be replaced.
You will usually notice right away if your lock is malfunctioning or damaged. It can be sudden or gradual, but you will know if there is a problem. Let us help you fix it.
We don't want to alarm you, but you should know that as soon as you realize your lock is damaged or somehow compromised, you are opening yourself up to security risks. We don't want to see that happen to you. Call us today.
