Door Lock Repair Services
AFFORDABLE PRICES | CERTIFIED TECHNICIANS
Door locks have become such an integral part of our homes that we often take them for granted. But, like any other piece of hardware, locks are susceptible to wear and tear. Humidity, rust, dust, and excessive force can all compromise their structural integrity over time, and cause them to jam or get stuck. Even worse, worn and damaged door locks are easier to pick, making them less reliable for security.

Lock Repair Vs. Replacement
In most cases, you don’t need to replace your entire lock to get it back to working condition, merely replacing the lock cylinder (the part containing the keyhole) will do. For some lock types, such as rim and level cylinder locks, repairing the tailpiece might do. In any case, a residential locksmith will be better able to address the situation and give you a few viable options once they’ve inspected the lock. If necessary, we can also rekey or change the damaged lock.
When Should I Repair My Locks?
Any indication that your lock is not working as it used to is reason enough to be wary. Even minor inconveniences, such as a noticeable resistance when turning the key, could be signs of a worn or damaged part. To ensure your home stays protected, have a locksmith take a look as soon as you notice an issue.
If you find yourself locked out of your home, don’t hesitate to contact an emergency locksmith to get you back inside.

How To Fix Door Locks
For minor issues, such as a slow-turning cylinder, you can try spraying some WD-40 in the key slot yourself. You can also try removing the key in and out of the lock and then unlocking the door several times to loosen the lock’s parts. However, if lubricating the lock does little or nothing to correct the issue, do not attempt any further repairs yourself. Without the right tools and expertise, you may end up damaging the lock even more. Instead, call a certified locksmith to inspect the lock.
