Frequently Asked Questions
Does this mean I will have to replace my lock?
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.
It's a common mistake to think that a broken key is no big deal and that you can retrieve it from a lock yourself. Unfortunately, this rarely works out like you expect it to. People who don't have specific training in locksmithing typically push the broken key even further into the lock. That makes it much more challenging for our crew to retrieve the key and increases the likelihood that we will need to replace your lock as well.
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.
Will it be necessary to rekey locks after a locksmith works on them?
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.
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.
Is it possible to open the door by bringing the two pieces of the broken key together?
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.
As soon as it's obvious that you have broke part or all of the key into your locking mechanism, be sure to contact us right away. We have been in business here for many years and our locksmiths know exactly what to do to get you back inside as quickly as possible. It's very important that you refrain from sticking other items inside of the lock, such as a bobby pin or screwdriver, to try to obtain pieces of the broken lock. If you do, those pieces could get stuck in the lock as well and make it impossible to repair it.
