New York City BROKEN KEY EXTRACTION
There isn't anything convenient about breaking part of a key in a lock when you're trying to drive home after a long day at work or to get into your home or workplace. You wouldn't be the first person who felt panicked at the thought of being locked out with no idea how to gain access again. Fortunately, We are always close by. With our main location in your area, you can feel confident that an experienced locksmith will be on the way to you within minutes. Even better, we maintain 24/7 availability.
When I break off part of a key in a lock, will I automatically need to replace it?
The locksmiths won't need to replace your lock in most situations. With many years of experience and training, they can dislodge the key without damaging the lock. Any member of our team can handle a broken key extraction in a prompt and accurate manner because we have provided them with precise instructions and they're highly professional as well. We are proud of the reputation we have built as a high-quality locksmith company that will help you quickly in your time of need.
We always stress the Golden Rule at our company. That means our locksmiths treat people in the same helpful and respectful manner that they would want to be treated themselves in the same situation. Whether it's a broken key or another common locksmith issue, we guarantee our work. We're not happy if you're simply satisfied with our work. We want you to feel delighted with it instead.
You might think that you can do the job yourself and don't need the services of a professional locksmith company. Unfortunately, that puts you at risk of damaging the lock mechanism's inside components. Once it gets to that point, it will be much more difficult to repair the lock. We will certainly do our best despite any damage to your lock.
What is the time estimate for retrieval of a broken key?
Because of our experience and training, we can typically pull the pieces of a broken key out of a lock in approximately 30 minutes. However, we don't normally quote an exact time because we never want to focus on speed at the expense of quality service. It could take longer depending of your specific type of lock and key and the severity of the breakage.
Do I need to rekey the rest of my locks?
You won't have to rekey any of your locks when part of the key breaks off in it unless you want to do this. Working with a professional locksmith for this job ensures that the security of your lock remains the same as it was before you broke a key off into it.
Are you able to make a spare key?
We are happy to provide you with a spare key in case you run into this problem in the future. The locksmith we send to your location will arrive with all the necessary tools to create a replacement key as well as a spare. If you have the necessary skills, you can create a duplicate key yourself.
Will I be able to open the lock using one or both pieces of the broken key?
Unfortunately, this is not possible. It is very important that you don't try to unlock your door once you realize that you have broken off a key inside of it. If you attempt to do this, you could push parts of the broken key even further into the mechanism of the lock. This makes it much more difficult to extract. Although we understand you're anxious to get back in your house, business, or car, we encourage you to contact us immediately rather than try to force a broken key into a lock.
Since We are available 24 hours a day and seven days a week, we encourage you to contact us right away. Within minutes of hanging up the phone, a professional locksmith will be on the way to your location. As you wait, we ask that you don't put any other items in the lock to attempt to open it. Again, this increases the risk of pushing the broken key even further into the locking mechanism.

Customers call us for emergency service for reasons like these:
After arriving at home and placing the key inside of your lock cylinder, you turn the key and see it break rather than unlock the door.
People trying to open a lock at one of the doors of their home and then breaking the key is a common scenario for our customers. Another common problem is getting a key stuck in a door or the ignition of your vehicle. This leaves you with only the head or a half of the key because its blades are stuck within the lock. As we said, most people experience this situation at some point so please don't feel silly about needing help.
Perhaps you have broken a key before or you recently looked at your keys and notice small cracks in either the blade or the head. It's good to be proactive about replacing worn keys to avoid this entire situation in the first place. However, We aren't here to give you a lecture about your keys. We are simply here to serve you should you need us.
Breaking off part of a key inside of a lock doesn't seem like it should be as challenging to fix as it is.

We recommend that you never try retrieving the key on your own unless you happen to have years of experience and training as well. You could cause significant damage to both the lock and the key if you do.
