Can you repair my lock, or do you have to replace it?
Some customers think they can simply repair their locks. That might be an option if there is no internal damage. But if your lock is severely damaged, replacing it is the best choice. The qualified technicians at We can examine your lock and give you their professional advice about your lock change.
However, if your lock has sustained major damage, it must be replaced. Our locksmiths will be able to give you an answer after they have surveyed the damage.
No matter what the circumstances, let our locksmiths give you their professional recommendation on whether to repair or replace.
How long will this lock replacement take?
We pride ourselves on prompt service. The qualified locksmiths at We can usually change a lock in as little as 20 to 30 minutes. The exact time depends upon the lock that was damaged and the lock you want to install.
It's must faster if you choose the same kind of lock, as we know it will fit the door of the lock we are removing. If you want to go with a different model, we can make the small adjustments necessary to accommodate the new lock. That may add a little time to the job.
Will my door be damaged in a lock change?
Definitely not! There is no reason a standard lock change should cause any damage to your door. Our experienced locksmiths take utmost care to protect the integrity of the locks and doors they work on.
Can I replace my old lock with a smart lock on the same door?
Most of the time, we can use a smart lock during your lock change. These smart locks give you the option to use combinations and pin pads, so you won't have to use a key to open your door. We might have to make some slight changes to your door, but you should not need a new door to go with a smart lock.
These smart locks also offer great flexibility. If you happen to forget the combination, it's a cinch to reset it. That is a lot easier than having to rekey or change locks in the event of lost keys. But if you still like using a key, there are models that allow that as well.
How do I know it's time to replace or change my lock?
Most customers who call us found it obvious something was wrong with their locks. Either it was damaged during an incident such as a burglary, or their keys no longer opened the door.
You will usually notice right away if your lock is malfunctioning or damaged. It can be sudden or gradual, but you will know if there is a problem. Let us help you fix it.
If there wasn't a forced entry incident that caused the damage, it's likely the lock has worn out over time. You might not know locks can wear out because of extended use, but it's possible. We are happy to assess your lock and determine what can be done to repair or replace it.

Signs you need a lock change
Did you know that damaged locks make you more susceptible to burglary? It is easier to pick and break locks that are already compromised. If you see these signs, call us as soon as possible.
Locks that break during external force are proof that you needed a better lock solution for your home. A high-quality lock should not be easy to break. Even if the break-in was not successful (we hope that's the case for you), there can still be internal damage that causes deficiencies. That means you might not be as safe as you felt when the lock kept someone out. As a matter of fact, locks that have been compromised are easier to pick and break. So, if this has happened to you, call us as soon as possible and we'll be there.
Another reason to think about changing your locks if when your keys have been lost or stolen. If a purse or car was stolen with keys in it, that leaves you vulnerable to someone using those keys to enter your home.
If your lock was broken during a break-in, that proves you need a stronger lock. If someone used force to break through the lock, it will likely need a complete lock change. Such force can cause internal damage that renders the locks useless. Also keep in mind that even if you don't see the damage, the lock could fail and leave you locked out of your house.
If you watch for warning signs, you might be able to avoid a lock replacement. Be attentive to things like rusted locks. Another thing to pay attention to when you find yourself struggling to unlock or lock your door, even when you are using the correct key. This is sometimes more apparent on cold nights. In that case, you need to service, repair, or replace your lock right away so you don't run the risk of locking yourself out.
Don't wait if you suspect any problems with your lock, or you could put the security of your home at risk. Worn-down or damaged locks are more susceptible to picking or breaking. If you pay attention to these situations and seek guidance , we will repair or change your lock.
Having a secure lock and door is essential. That's why you should not hesitate to call at the first sign of trouble. Waiting too long to address a broken lock definitely can lead to bigger problems.
The force that must be used to break in a locked door usually damages the internal mechanics of a lock or the lock itself. A damaged lock puts you at a higher risk of being victimized again. Also, mechanical failures as a result of a break-in could result in malfunctions that could leave you locked out of your own home.
Another thing we advise is to properly maintain your locks. That's one way to makes sure they last a long time. Professional maintenance can also help you recognize any changes in the lock structure that require attention.
Even with proper maintenance, a lock can fail. In most cases, that will require a lock replacement.
Can I use a smart lock?
Great question! For many customers, smart locks provide an easy and secure way to enter and lock your home. Using combinations and pin pads instead of keys, smart locks are a great choice for those forgetful family members who can't keep track of their keys.
If some people prefer the traditional key entry, many of the smart locks available offer that ability as well.
