Why do we have to replace my lock instead of repairing 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.
However, if your lock has sustained major damage, it must be replaced. Our locksmiths will be able to give you an answer after they have surveyed the damage.
No matter what the circumstances, let our locksmiths give you their professional recommendation on whether to repair or replace.
How long will it take to replace my lock?
We pride ourselves on prompt service. The qualified locksmiths at We can usually change a lock in as little as 20 to 30 minutes. The exact time depends upon the lock that was damaged and the lock you want to install.
It's must faster if you choose the same kind of lock, as we know it will fit the door of the lock we are removing. If you want to go with a different model, we can make the small adjustments necessary to accommodate the new lock. That may add a little time to the job.
Will my door be damaged in a lock change?
There should be no damage to your door from this process. The highly skilled professional locksmiths take great care to ensure your door looks just like it did when we leave.
Do I need to change my door if I want to replace my old lock with a smart lock?
Most of the time, we can use a smart lock during your lock change. These smart locks give you the option to use combinations and pin pads, so you won't have to use a key to open your door. We might have to make some slight changes to your door, but you should not need a new door to go with a smart lock.
These smart locks also offer great flexibility. If you happen to forget the combination, it's a cinch to reset it. That is a lot easier than having to rekey or change locks in the event of lost keys. But if you still like using a key, there are models that allow that as well.
How do I know it's time to replace or change my lock?
You will usually notice right away if your lock is not working properly or has suffered damage. Sometimes it is an unexpected incident, or it can be the extended use over time that causes problems. If you notice damage, or if you key is not fitting properly, give us a call and we will find out what is wrong and remedy the problem.
You will usually notice right away if your lock is malfunctioning or damaged. It can be sudden or gradual, but you will know if there is a problem. Let us help you fix it.

Signs You Might Need a Lock Change
Did you know that damaged locks make you more susceptible to burglary? It is easier to pick and break locks that are already compromised. If you see these signs, call us as soon as possible.
We advise customers to call as soon as they notice something is wrong, so our professional locksmiths can get to work before it's too late. Taking care of a worn-out lock sooner rather than later can save money on replacement and improve your home's security. We have known customers who waited too long after noticing a problem, and as a result, had to deal with more significant and costly damage and repairs.
We recommend homeowners prioritize maintaining their locks. Don't simply take for granted that the lock will always work correctly. Rather, take steps to ensure that it does. Our locksmiths can help with maintenance and repairs before you get to the point of needing a lock change.
If your lock was broken during a break-in, that proves you need a stronger lock. If someone used force to break through the lock, it will likely need a complete lock change. Such force can cause internal damage that renders the locks useless. Also keep in mind that even if you don't see the damage, the lock could fail and leave you locked out of your house.
If you watch for warning signs, you might be able to avoid a lock replacement. Be attentive to things like rusted locks. Another thing to pay attention to when you find yourself struggling to unlock or lock your door, even when you are using the correct key. This is sometimes more apparent on cold nights. In that case, you need to service, repair, or replace your lock right away so you don't run the risk of locking yourself out.
Sometimes failing locks are hardest to open in cold weather, and you don't want to be left outside because your lock has completely stopped working and your key won't work.
If someone broke in, it shows the locks were not strong enough to stop a burglary of your home. And if criminals were able to bypass the locks, they are likely significantly damaged. If someone forced your door open your locks are now probably damaged beyond repair.
We are here to help you determine the best way to move forward.
Another thing we advise is to properly maintain your locks. That's one way to makes sure they last a long time. Professional maintenance can also help you recognize any changes in the lock structure that require attention.
Even with proper maintenance, a lock can fail. In most cases, that will require a lock replacement.
Can I use a smart lock?
Many people like the ease and efficiency of smart locks that use combinations and pin pads instead of keys. If you or someone in your family tend to misplace their keys, this could be a great choice for you. If you ever have trouble remember the secret codes, they can be reset. That's a lot easier than having to rekey locks.
If some people prefer the traditional key entry, many of the smart locks available offer that ability as well.
