Boston ANYTIME LOCK REPAIR
We Repair All Types of Locks 24 Hours a Day
Did You Come Home to a Broken Lock?
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. It isn't fun being stuck outside of your own home, especially at night or in poor weather conditions. Even so, we urge you to call us instead. We fix all types of lock issues and work with every brand of lock.
Whether it's Murphy's Law or just bad luck, broken locks seem to happen at the worst possible time, which is rarely during regular business hours. Whether you need a lock repaired, replaced, or need help with another common locksmith issue, just give us a call any time to request immediate assistance. A certified and uniformed locksmith technician will arrive to your location in under 30 minutes.
Should I attempt to repair the lock on my own?
Unfortunately, we can't give you a definitive answer to this question without first evaluating the damage to your lock. We do advise against it as a general rule. It might look like a simple job at first but could quickly become overwhelming the further into the repair you get. You can save yourself the frustration and possibly the expense of repairing additional lock damage by calling us instead.
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.
What signs should I look for to know when it's time to replace my 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?
We typically quote a service time of 20 to 30 minutes. However, keep in mind this can vary considerably in either direction due to the fact that no two locks are exactly alike. We can't state a time with complete certainty until we arrive at your location and assess the damage to your lock. You can feel confident that we will work efficiently and get you back into your home as quickly as possible.
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 should I do if I place my key in the lock and it won't turn?
We recommend that you contact us right away when your key doesn't turn because there's a good chance the lock requires replacement. If you have a can of lubricant available, you can try placing some in the key hole and then insert the key again. This may work temporarily. However, we still urge you to have one of our professional locksmiths repair the lock so you don't keep running into this problem. The lock may need replacement if it won't turn after lubrication, but we won't know this for sure until we assess it.

How locks get damaged
A lock can become damaged for a variety of reasons. One of the most common things we see is damage from someone attempting to pick a lock. While this can occur from someone trying to break into the home, it's more often a case of someone who lives there trying to get in after losing his or her key.
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, cold, rain, or wind can all take a toll on your lock. This is something that many people fail to consider. We recommend always checking the condition of your locks whenever you might experience any weather extremes.
Key breaking in a lock
If a key breaks when you insert it into a lock, some of its pieces can remain lodged in the lock. This will typically cause the lock to open slowly or not at all. Extracting a broken key requires specialized training and equipment. We advise you to resist the urge to try to pull out the key yourself and to call us instead.
