New York City EMERGENCY LOCK REPAIR
We Repair All Types of Locks 24 Hours a Day
When a broken lock prevents you from getting into your house
When the lock to your home's door is broken, you may feel the need to break a window or try to force the lock to open just so you can get inside. It isn't fun being stuck outside of your own home, especially at night or in poor weather conditions. Even so, we urge you to call us instead. We fix all types of lock issues and work with every brand of lock.
No one plans to have a lock break, especially when it's late at night and you can't get into your own home. Those factors alone can produce a lot of anxiety, especially when you're concerned about finding a locksmith company that's available to help you. We will dispatch a locksmith to your location within minutes of your call to us. Just call our residential locksmith division whenever you find yourself in a situation of needing immediate lock repair.
Should I attempt to repair my own lock when I notice that it is broken?
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.
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.
What signs should I look for to know when it's time to replace my 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.
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.
Sometimes the problem is as simple as adjusting your lock's strike plate. That is a best-case scenario. The situation becomes more complex when we need to change some part of the lock's interior component. No matter what the issue, the certified locksmiths at We can correct it. In the event that we can't repair the lock, we will help you find the best solution for replacement.
Is there anything I can do about a lock that won't turn after I put my key into it?
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.

Actions that can damage locks
A lock can sustain damage or break for a variety of reasons. One of the most common things we see is lock damage from someone trying to pick it. This could be due to an attempted break-in, but it's more likely that a family member forgot a key and tried to get in the house, car, or garage without one.
Lack of routine maintenance or cleaning
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.
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.
Parts of a key breaking off 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.
