There are some warning signs that might help you avoid a lock replacement and allow for repair. Pay attention to locks that look rusty or keys that don't seem to work anymore in the lock. Especially when it is cold outside, locks sometimes show their deficits. You don't want to end up locked out on one of those cold nights, so be sure to consult us to see if we can repair your lock.
Another reason to think about changing your locks if when your keys have been lost or stolen. If a purse or car was stolen with keys in it, that leaves you vulnerable to someone using those keys to enter your home.
If your lock was broken during a break-in, that proves you need a stronger lock. If someone used force to break through the lock, it will likely need a complete lock change. Such force can cause internal damage that renders the locks useless. Also keep in mind that even if you don't see the damage, the lock could fail and leave you locked out of your house.
There are some things to watch for that could keep a lock replacement at bay. If you see a lock is rusting, or if you have to jiggle the key too much to get it to unlock, you need to have your lock looked at by a professional locksmith.
Sometimes failing locks are hardest to open in cold weather, and you don't want to be left outside because your lock has completely stopped working and your key won't work.
Having a secure lock and door is essential. That's why you should not hesitate to call at the first sign of trouble. Waiting too long to address a broken lock definitely can lead to bigger problems.
The force that must be used to break in a locked door usually damages the internal mechanics of a lock or the lock itself. A damaged lock puts you at a higher risk of being victimized again. Also, mechanical failures as a result of a break-in could result in malfunctions that could leave you locked out of your own home.
If someone broke in without damaging the lock or door, you should consider whether your keys were compromised in the burglary. We believe it's best to assume that your keys could fall into the hands of someone who shouldn't have them. In that case, we recommend changing the locks on all your doors.
Even with proper maintenance, a lock can fail. In most cases, that will require a lock replacement.
Many people like the ease and efficiency of smart locks that use combinations and pin pads instead of keys. If you or someone in your family tend to misplace their keys, this could be a great choice for you. If you ever have trouble remember the secret codes, they can be reset. That's a lot easier than having to rekey locks.
Most of these locks also have an option that allows you to open the door with the key in case you forget the combination or identification number. You can also have the option to change your combination if you think it has been compromised, rather than having to rekey the lock.
