Louisville EMERGENCY LOCK REPAIR
We Repair All Types of Locks 24 Hours a Day
When a broken lock prevents you from getting into your house
It can induce a sense of dread when you come home and see that the lock on your house or garage is broken. You naturally worry that someone tried to break in. Perhaps the lock was fine when you left for work this morning but wouldn't budge when you inserted your key in the afternoon. We understand that you need these problems fixed right away. This is the reason we choose to remain available 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.
Whether it's Murphy's Law or just bad luck, broken locks seem to happen at the worst possible time, which is rarely during regular business hours. Whether you need a lock repaired, replaced, or need help with another common locksmith issue, just give us a call any time to request immediate assistance. A certified and uniformed locksmith technician will arrive to your location in under 30 minutes.
Is it possible for me to fix my own broken lock?
Unfortunately, we can't give you a definitive answer to this question without first evaluating the damage to your lock. We do advise against it as a general rule. It might look like a simple job at first but could quickly become overwhelming the further into the repair you get. You can save yourself the frustration and possibly the expense of repairing additional lock damage by calling us instead.
You can trust our years of experience working with all types of broken locks as we evaluate and repair the damage to your lock. In situations where we can't repair the lock, we will advise you on your various options for replacement as well as help you select the one that works best for the security and dEcor needs of your home.
How will I know when it's time to replace a lock?
If your lock doesn't turn as easily as it once did, you have gotten a key stuck in it, or you want to take advantage of newer security features, it's probably time for repair or replacement. Your lock naturally endures wear as you use it every day. The differences in your ability to turn it will seem subtle at first and then become more pronounced. We can repair the lock of your home if you call us as soon as you notice a difference in its performance.
Putting too much pressure on a lock to force it to open is one of the biggest reasons that locks break. Another is that the lock has just worn out over the years. Experiencing resistance when you attempt to open a lock is a sure indication that it could break soon.
How long will I need to wait while you repair my lock?
We typically quote a service time of 20 to 30 minutes. However, keep in mind this can vary considerably in either direction due to the fact that no two locks are exactly alike. We can't state a time with complete certainty until we arrive at your location and assess the damage to your lock. You can feel confident that we will work efficiently and get you back into your home as quickly as possible.
Repair jobs that fall on the lower end of our time estimate include things like adjusting your lock's strike plate so it opens more efficiently. If we need to do something more complex such as adjust an interior part of a lock, that will take longer. The good news is that every member of our locksmith team has the education and experience to respond to any type of lock repair need, whether it's minor or an emergency.
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.
Lack of routine maintenance or cleaning
A lock can become corroded if it's gone many years without cleaning. Unfortunately, using a cleaner with abrasive qualities can be even worse than doing nothing. The best thing to do is use WD-40 or a similar lubricant for locks.
Weather that's out of the ordinary, such as extreme cold, heat, or excessive rain, can cause damage to a lock. It's always a good idea to check the condition of your locks after severe weather in your area.
Key breaking in a lock
Breaking a key off in a lock can damage the mechanism of the lock. To avoid damaging the lock further, call us right away for help.
