The top 5 reasons that homes and business need door lock repair service.
- Misaligned Latch. If the door latch is not operating smoothly, the latch bolt and the strike plate may be misaligned. This can be repaired by performing a latch adjustment. Alternatively, the entire door may need to be repositioned. Only a professional locksmith can determine how a misaligned latch should be repaired.
- Loose Doorknobs. Over time, doorknobs can loosen. The type of lockset present on your doors will determine the method we use to secure the doorknob.
- Your door lock has "seized up". "Seizing up" indicates an inability to turn the key once it has been inserted. This can be caused by dirt or debris which has collected inside your lock. Our locksmiths will clean the locking mechanism and insure proper lubrication so that your lock will function again.
- Stuck deadbolt. This is usually caused by a misalignment between the deadbolt and throat as well as the strike plate. We will realign these or reposition the door, if needed, so that the deadbolt will work properly.
- The key has broken off inside the lock. When a key is broken and stuck in the cylinder of your lock, there is no way of using the lock to enter your home or business. Cheap Lock & Key will send a locksmith to your location and retrieve the key segment from the cylinder. We can then create a new key for you right at your location!
