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.
One of the major incidents requires a lock change is a forced break-in that damages the lock. Other times, the locks on your most commonly used doors can wear down. In both of these situations, a lock change will offer you the best protection.
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?
One of our experienced locksmiths should be able to change your lock in about 20 to 30 minutes. It might take more or less time depending upon the type of lock you had and the new lock you want to be installed.
Of course, it is quicker if you choose the same lock model, because the door is already primed for that installation. If you choose a different model, we may need to make minor changes to your door, which could take just a little bit longer.
Will my door be damaged in the process of changing locks?
Almost never. The qualified locksmiths have the highest standards and work carefully to make sure your door maintains its current condition.
Is a smart lock a good choice for my lock change?
In most cases, you can replace your traditional lock with a smart lock using the same door. Many of the smart locks available today fit easily into the doors already in place. Our locksmiths might have to make some small alternations in order for a new smart lock to fit the existing door, but a new door will not be needed – unless you want one!
This provides great flexibility for customers who don't want to carry house keys or those who might have a habit of losing them. Also, if you happen to forget the combination or pin number, it's easy to reset them. This can be one less headache for you than if you had to rekey all the locks in the case of a lost key. Another feature most smart locks have is the ability to also allow for a keyed entry for family members who prefer that option.
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.

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.
