Frequently Asked Questions
When I break off part of a key in a lock, will I automatically need to replace it?
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.
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.
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.
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.
Can I request your locksmith to create a spare key at the same time?
That is no problem at all. In fact, making spare keys is one of the main functions of a professional locksmith. The worker we dispatch to your home will create a new or spare key for you to replace the one that broke off in your door. You also have the option of taking your key to a hardware store to have a copy made, but that would take more time.
Will I be able to open the lock using one or both pieces of the broken key?
No, you won't be able to do this. We ask that you don't attempt it either. Once you know that a piece of a key is stuck in your lock, it's in your best interest to contact us as soon as possible. If you try to use half of a key or a bent key to open a lock, it could push the broken pieces even deeper within the lock. Once that happens, our ability to extract the key decreases significantly. We promise to send someone to your location within a few minutes of receiving your call.
We can't stress enough how important it is to contact us within a few minutes of realizing that your key broke off in your lock. As a professional locksmith company here, we hire only the most competent staff to ensure that they provide the highest quality of service to our customers. Please don't place any other items into the lock as a substitute for a key. Not only could these items break as well, they could cause you to push the broken key even further into the components of the lock.
