When a broken lock prevents you from getting into your house
When the lock to your home's door is broken, you may feel the need to break a window or try to force the lock to open just so you can get inside.

We fix all types of lock issues and work with every brand of lock.

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.
Is it possible for me to fix my own broken lock?
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.
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?
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.
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.
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?
Your lock may need replacement if this happens. We encourage you to call us right away and we will come to evaluate the situation. While you're waiting for a locksmith to arrive, try spraying lubricant into the key opening if you have any. This may or may not allow you to open the lock. Even if it does, it's best to follow through with having us evaluate the lock. You can consider it an early warning that the lock is beginning to malfunction.

Common causes of damage to 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.
Lack of lock maintenance or using the wrong cleaning supplies
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.
Parts of a key breaking off in a lock
When a key breaks into two or more pieces, some parts of it can get stuck in a lock. This can have a big impact on its functioning. If you break a key in your lock, please contact us for assistance rather than try to extract it yourself.
