FAQs

Does this mean I will have to replace my lock?

Most locks will not require replacement when you break a key inside of it because of the expert work of our locksmiths. They carefully followed the step-by-step procedure that we lay out for the extraction of broken keys and can promptly retrieve a key from a lock. Their training ensures that they know exactly how to handle these types of situations. Our locksmiths also have many years of experience helping people in the same position that you find yourself in today.

People who have lived and worked in this community for a while know that they can trust us for broken keys and any other locksmith needs. We pride ourselves on our knowledge, quality, and prompt services for people who find themselves in an emergency situation. Our locksmiths understand that they would want someone to respond in the same way if they were dealing with this problem.

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.

What is the time estimate for retrieval of a 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 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.

Will your locksmith create a spare key for me?

We are happy to provide you with a spare key in case you run into this problem in the future. The locksmith we send to your location will arrive with all the necessary tools to create a replacement key as well as a spare. If you have the necessary skills, you can create a duplicate key yourself.

Is it possible to open the door by bringing the two pieces of the broken key together?

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.
