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.
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.
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.
How long will I have to wait for you to retrieve my broken key?
As professionals with many years of training and experience, any member of our locksmith team can usually retrieve the pieces of a broken lock in under 30 minutes. However, you don't have to worry that fixing the problem quickly means that they won't do an efficient job. Our top priority on any service call is getting you back inside of your car, home, or workplace. We will take longer if necessary to ensure that we complete the job correctly.
Will I have to rekey my locks after you have extracted a key from one of 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?
Our locksmiths have the tools and equipment on hand to make one or more spare keys whenever you need them. All you have to do is ask. It's always a good idea to have a spare key in addition to the replacement key that we create for you.
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.
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.
