Frequently Asked Questions
When I break a key in a lock, will I need to replace the lock too?
It isn't necessary to replace the lock when a key breaks inside of it in most cases. This is due to the extensive training and experience of our professional locksmiths. We provide them with a detailed procedure to follow for every service call. This ensures they can complete the job promptly and accurately. While you might not have any idea of what to do, our team does. Our company has served the locksmith needs of people for many years now and will provide you with the same level of quality service that defines us.
People who have lived and worked in this community for a while know that they can trust us for broken keys and any other locksmith needs. We pride ourselves on our knowledge, quality, and prompt services for people who find themselves in an emergency situation. Our locksmiths understand that they would want someone to respond in the same way if they were dealing with this problem.
Many people make the mistake of thinking they can retrieve a broken key from a lock themselves. Whether they don't want to wait for service or fear it will cost them too much, this plan can backfire in a hurry. You can do more harm than good when you don't understand at a deep level how keys and locks work. If you push the key further into the lock's components, it becomes that much more difficult for our team to attempt to repair it.
How long will I have to wait for you to retrieve my broken key?
Our professional locksmiths can typically complete an extraction job in a half an hour or less. Because of their training and experience having extracted broken keys from thousands of locks, you can feel confident that they will do the job quickly and with extreme professionalism. However, our locksmiths never put speed ahead of quality. They take the time to ensure they have done the job right so your lock doesn't potentially break in the future.
Do I need to rekey the rest of my locks?
This isn't usually necessary. However, we would be happy to rekey your locks upon request. We assure you that your locks remain uncompromised after we have worked on one of them. We also understand your concern about additional security risks.
Will your locksmith create a spare key for me?
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.
Is it possible to bring the 2 pieces of the broken key back together to open a lock?
Not only will this not work, it could cause further damage to your lock as well. As soon as you're certain that your key has broken off in a lock, please call us immediately. The risk of trying to use a partial key is that you could force the part of the key stuck in the lock to go even deeper into it. It's much more likely that you would need a complete lock replacement at this point.
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.
Call Us 24/7 for Service At Your Location:
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.
After finishing your work for the day, you go to unlock your car by inserting a key into the slot on one of the doors. The next thing you know, you're holding the key by only its head because its blade broke and got stuck in the lock. While you might feel embarrassed about the situation, it happens all the time to people at work, home, or when trying to open their car door.
Sometimes a key gives clues that it is about to break soon. We encourage you to look at your keys periodically and check for cracks in both the head and blade. Don't hesitate to have a new key made at a local hardware store or to contact us for help in replacing a worn key. It may be possible to avoid the problem of a broken key by taking this approach.
Retrieving a broken key from a lock is one of those things that is much more difficult than it looks. If you have seen a locksmith do it in the past, it's important to remember that he or she had specialized training first. If you try to do it yourself, it could end up costing you a lot in extra repair costs, time, and inconvenience.
