Little Rock BROKEN KEY EXTRACTION
There isn't anything convenient about breaking part of a key in a lock when you're trying to drive home after a long day at work or to get into your home or workplace. You wouldn't be the first person who felt panicked at the thought of being locked out with no idea how to gain access again. Fortunately, We are always close by. With our main location in your area, you can feel confident that an experienced locksmith will be on the way to you within minutes. Even better, we maintain 24/7 availability.
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.
Many people make the mistake of thinking they can retrieve a broken key from a lock themselves. Whether they don't want to wait for service or fear it will cost them too much, this plan can backfire in a hurry. You can do more harm than good when you don't understand at a deep level how keys and locks work. If you push the key further into the lock's components, it becomes that much more difficult for our team to attempt to repair it.
What is the time estimate for retrieval of a 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?
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.
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 bring the 2 pieces of the broken key back together to open a lock?
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.
As soon as it's obvious that you have broke part or all of the key into your locking mechanism, be sure to contact us right away. We have been in business here for many years and our locksmiths know exactly what to do to get you back inside as quickly as possible. It's very important that you refrain from sticking other items inside of the lock, such as a bobby pin or screwdriver, to try to obtain pieces of the broken lock. If you do, those pieces could get stuck in the lock as well and make it impossible to repair it.
Call Us 24/7 for Service At Your Location:
Customers call us for emergency service for reasons like these:
After arriving at home and placing the key inside of your lock cylinder, you turn the key and see it break rather than unlock the door.
After finishing your work for the day, you go to unlock your car by inserting a key into the slot on one of the doors. The next thing you know, you're holding the key by only its head because its blade broke and got stuck in the lock. While you might feel embarrassed about the situation, it happens all the time to people at work, home, or when trying to open their car door.
Perhaps you have broken a key before or you recently looked at your keys and notice small cracks in either the blade or the head. It's good to be proactive about replacing worn keys to avoid this entire situation in the first place. However, We aren't here to give you a lecture about your keys. We are simply here to serve you should you need us.
Breaking off part of a key inside of a lock doesn't seem like it should be as challenging to fix as it is. It might look easy when we do it, but keep in mind that each of our locksmiths has years of experience and training. We recommend that you never try retrieving the key on your own unless you happen to have years of experience and training as well. You could cause significant damage to both the lock and the key if you do.
