Frequently Asked Questions
Does this mean I will have to replace my lock?
The locksmiths won't need to replace your lock in most situations. With many years of experience and training, they can dislodge the key without damaging the lock. Any member of our team can handle a broken key extraction in a prompt and accurate manner because we have provided them with precise instructions and they're highly professional as well. We are proud of the reputation we have built as a high-quality locksmith company that will help you quickly in your time of need.
Many home, business, and vehicle owners in your area have had the experience of contacting our company when they have been in this predicament. We are pleased of the reputation we have built as a knowledgeable, friendly, and dependable locksmithing company throughout the State.
You might think that you can do the job yourself and don't need the services of a professional locksmith company. Unfortunately, that puts you at risk of damaging the lock mechanism's inside components. Once it gets to that point, it will be much more difficult to repair the lock. We will certainly do our best despite any damage to your lock.
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?
You won't have to rekey any of your locks when part of the key breaks off in it unless you want to do this. Working with a professional locksmith for this job ensures that the security of your lock remains the same as it was before you broke a key off into it.
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.
Will I be able to open the lock using one or both pieces of the broken key?
Unfortunately, this is not possible. It is very important that you don't try to unlock your door once you realize that you have broken off a key inside of it. If you attempt to do this, you could push parts of the broken key even further into the mechanism of the lock. This makes it much more difficult to extract. Although we understand you're anxious to get back in your house, business, or car, we encourage you to contact us immediately rather than try to force a broken key into a lock.
Since We are available 24 hours a day and seven days a week, we encourage you to contact us right away. Within minutes of hanging up the phone, a professional locksmith will be on the way to your location. As you wait, we ask that you don't put any other items in the lock to attempt to open it. Again, this increases the risk of pushing the broken key even further into the locking mechanism.
