Damaged Locks Mean an Unsafe Home

The locks around your home get used each and every day, several times a day. Like any other hardware around your home, they’re prone to the gradual wear and tear that accumulates over time and that may necessitate the need for a lock repair. In addition to becoming weak over time, locks may be damaged directly and need to be fixed. If a lock in your home has been tampered with or if you’ve been burglarized, you’ll want to repair those locks right away in order to restore the safety of your home and family.

So, When Should You Repair Your Locks?
There are many circumstances that may entail the need for a residential lock repair. Whether your locks have been damaged directly or worn down over the years, we can service almost any kind of lock. We work with a wide variety of locks and repair equipment – whatever the nature of the repair, we can handle it in a professional and timely manner. Call Capital Locksmith if you notice any of the following issues with your locks:

The Key Turns But Doesn’t Unlock the Door
If your key fits into the lock and turns the door, yet still doesn’t seem to actually unlock the door, you’ve got a problem. This is most likely a failure of the lock mechanism because of worn or displaced parts (pins) inside the lock. In this case, often the simplest approach to repairing the lock is replacing the inner components of the lock, or the lock itself.

The Key Doesn’t Turn Or Doesn’t Fit
If your key goes into the lock but won’t turn, or if it won’t go into the lock at all, there’s most likely some obstruction inside the lock. Locks, especially outdoor ones, tend to collect a lot of dust and dirt. When this builds up and hardens over time, it can prevent you from being able to turn your key in the lock.

If lubricating the lock doesn’t fix your problem, you’ll need to call Capital Locksmith to come repair the lock for you. If the problem is more serious, such as a worn-out pin chamber or corroded pin, you may need to have the lock cylinder replaced – a simple process, but one that requires the expertise of a professional locksmith.

Warped Door or Lock
Weather conditions – such as extreme heat or cold, and excessive humidity – can warp the shape and size of your locks, and even your door itself. The lock repair, in this case, isn’t complicated, but it does require the equipment and knowledge of a skilled, professional locksmith – Capital Locksmith!

Misaligned Door Latch
When your latch doesn’t align with the strike plate, you’ve got a misaligned door latch. The result is a door that doesn’t close properly. We can fix this problem by either deepening the plate or adjusting the strike plate. Alternatively, when these measures don’t work, we can reposition the door and align it with a new lock.

Get Timely Lock Repair Assistance!

You may be tempted to attempt a residential lock repair yourself. The internet is full of professional ‘advice’ for how to go about fixing your locks. However, the truth is, lock repairs, while often simple, require special tools and the knowledge of a trained professional locksmith. Attempting the lock repair yourself can seem like a cheap and easy solution, but will almost always lead to you damaging your locks and doors further. This then requires a more expensive lock repair or replacement than you would’ve needed had you simply called a locksmith first.

At Capital Locksmith, we know our locks. We’ve been doing residential lock repairs for a long time and are confident that we can do yours too. No matter what the issue is, we’ll arrive and complete the lock repair without incurring any damage to your property.
