Louisville LOCK REPAIR
Need a Lock Repaired? We're Always Available to Help
When a broken lock prevents you from getting into your house
When you need lock repair, We are there for you at any time of the day or night. We employ a team of skilled and experienced locksmith technicians that can repair any type of lock. No matter what service you need, you can count on our team to deliver.
There is never a convenient time to experience a broken lock. You may fear that someone tried to access your home or that it will be easier for them to do so when your lock isn't working right. The situation can become even more stressful when you encounter a broken lock at a time that many other locksmith companies are closed. Fortunately, We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to respond to your home locksmith needs.
Should I attempt to repair the lock on my own?
It isn't always possible for us to answer this question without knowing the extent of the lock damage. We are happy to evaluate your lock and answer that for you, but it's usually better just to have a certified locksmith handle the situation from the start. When you don't have locksmith training and experience, you could end up damaging the lock further and will need to replace it.
We are a trusted local locksmith because we put ourselves in the position of our customer. We wouldn't want to wait for a long time outside or pay a high cost to repair a broken lock and we don't think you should have to either. It's always our goal to save your lock, but we will discuss all options for replacement with you if that isn't possible.
How will I know when it's time to replace a lock?
One of the most obvious indications of a failing lock is when you place a key in it and it doesn't turn as easily as it once did. You may also need to replace it if anyone broke a key off in the lock or if you simply want to upgrade for better security features. Like everything else, locks wear out with everyday use. We recommend replacement once you experience a noticeable change in ease of opening the door. This can help to prevent an emergency later.
Exerting strong pressure on a lock is the top reason that people call us for repair services. Other times, locks simply become more fragile due to the passage of time. Besides a key that moves slowly when inserted into a lock, you can tell that the lock is getting old when you experience greater resistance in opening the door. Our locksmiths would be happy to evaluate your lock and let you know if replacement is a good idea.
How long will I need to wait while you repair my lock?
We typically spend 20 to 30 minutes repairing a home, garage, or auto lock. However, your wait may be longer or shorter depending on the unique properties of your lock and the extent of the breakage. We can give you a better time estimate once we arrive at your location and can evaluate these issues for ourselves. The locksmith technicians respect your time and will have your lock issue resolved as quickly as possible.
The repairs that take the least amount of time tend to be easy adjustments such as moving the strike plate of your lock to a better position. A more complex job would consist of something like changing an interior part of the lock to get it to work correctly. Whether your job is simple, difficult, or somewhere in between, we are here to help you 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Just Call us and someone will be at your location in 30 minutes or less.
What should I do if I place my key in the lock and it won't turn?
Your lock may need replacement if this happens. We encourage you to call us right away and we will come to evaluate the situation. While you're waiting for a locksmith to arrive, try spraying lubricant into the key opening if you have any. This may or may not allow you to open the lock. Even if it does, it's best to follow through with having us evaluate the lock. You can consider it an early warning that the lock is beginning to malfunction.

Common causes of damage to locks
Many reasons exist for a lock to sustain damage. We have found that the most common one is the attempt to pick a lock. This usually occurs when someone forgets his or her keys and tries to gain access without one. It could also happen due to a burglary attempt.
Not cleaning or maintaining the lock
When you don't clean or maintain your lock, it can succumb to everyday wear much sooner. The opening starts to corrode and fills with various types of debris. WD-40 or a similar lubricant is the best thing to use for cleaning. If you use a cleaner with abrasive properties, it could damage the lock instead.
Excessive heat or cold, flooding, and storm damage are all common reasons for lock damage. You may find that your lock no longer works properly after just one severe weather event.
Breaking a key inside of a lock
When a key breaks into two or more pieces, some parts of it can get stuck in a lock. This can have a big impact on its functioning. If you break a key in your lock, please contact us for assistance rather than try to extract it yourself.
