Why might your lock need to be repaired?

There are lots of reasons why your locks might need to be repaired and, as the vast majority of us use our locks every day, it’s easy to see why it’s not uncommon to run into issues.

Here’s a closer look at some of the reasons why your locks might need repairing...

  • Your lock may have broken parts inside
  • Your key might be bent or snapped
  • The lock may have seized
  • Your lock may have succumbed to everyday wear and tear
  • The lock might be too old
  • The lock may have been damaged from forced opening

Experiencing issues with your lock?

Before panicking, you should always check that you are using the correct key to access your property or car. You will be surprised at how many people embark on a fruitless battle with their door lock, only to discover they were using the wrong key.

If you’re confident that the key is not the issue, there are a few other things you could try to fix your lock, before having to admit defeat and call in a locksmith. These include using a lubricant such as WD40 to try and break down any grime and dirt, wiggling the key back and forth, and adjusting the strike plate by loosening the screws.

Preventing wear and tear

One of the best ways to prevent door locking issues is to keep all of your locks nice and clean by simply wiping their surface at least twice a year. At the same time, check out the functionality of your door and how it is operating - does it open and close easily, is the lock operating smoothly and so on. Keeping a close eye on things means you can nip any issues in the bud quickly, and save yourself time and money.
