Salt Lake City LOCK REPAIR
Need a Lock Repaired? We're Always Available to Help
Did You Come Home to a Broken Lock?
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 the lock on my own?
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.
Our company has been a proud member of this community for many years. During that time, we have developed a reputation as locksmiths you can trust. We will be honest and let you know if we're able to fix the lock or if you should replace it. For the latter option, we will help you choose just the right lock according to your security needs and style preferences.
What signs should I look for to know when it's time to replace my 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.
Exerting strong pressure on a lock is the top reason that people call us for repair services. Other times, locks simply become more fragile due to the passage of time. Besides a key that moves slowly when inserted into a lock, you can tell that the lock is getting old when you experience greater resistance in opening the door. Our locksmiths would be happy to evaluate your lock and let you know if replacement is a good idea.
What is the average wait time for repair of a 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.
What should I do if I place my key in the lock and it won't turn?
A key should always turn after insertion into a lock. If it doesn't, that is a good sign that you need to contact our company to request lock repair. You may be able to get the lock to turn so you can access your home by placing lubrication in the key hole and then attempting to open the lock again. While that will take care of the immediate problem, it's highly likely that your lock still requires repair. If the lock still won't turn after you lubricate it, it has probably encountered a malfunction. That doesn't necessarily mean that you need to replace it immediately. Our locksmith technicians will survey the damage and let you know if repair or replacement is the best course of action.

Actions that can damage 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.
Not cleaning or maintaining the lock
The key hole of a lock can become filled with dirt, debris, and everyday corrosion. It needs occasional cleaning to ensure proper functioning. However, some people don't realize that using an abrasive cleaner will cause further damage. A lubricant such as WD-40 is ideal for cleaning a lock.
Excessive heat or cold, flooding, and storm damage are all common reasons for lock damage. You may find that your lock no longer works properly after just one severe weather event.
Parts of a key breaking off in a lock
If a key breaks when you insert it into a lock, some of its pieces can remain lodged in the lock. This will typically cause the lock to open slowly or not at all. Extracting a broken key requires specialized training and equipment. We advise you to resist the urge to try to pull out the key yourself and to call us instead.
