Atlanta BROKEN KEY EXTRACTION
There isn't anything convenient about breaking part of a key in a lock when you're trying to drive home after a long day at work or to get into your home or workplace. You wouldn't be the first person who felt panicked at the thought of being locked out with no idea how to gain access again. Fortunately, We are always close by. With our main location in your area, you can feel confident that an experienced locksmith will be on the way to you within minutes. Even better, we maintain 24/7 availability.
Does this mean I will have to replace my lock?
It isn't necessary to replace the lock when a key breaks inside of it in most cases. This is due to the extensive training and experience of our professional locksmiths. We provide them with a detailed procedure to follow for every service call. This ensures they can complete the job promptly and accurately. While you might not have any idea of what to do, our team does. Our company has served the locksmith needs of people for many years now and will provide you with the same level of quality service that defines us.
We always stress the Golden Rule at our company. That means our locksmiths treat people in the same helpful and respectful manner that they would want to be treated themselves in the same situation. Whether it's a broken key or another common locksmith issue, we guarantee our work. We're not happy if you're simply satisfied with our work. We want you to feel delighted with it instead.
You might think that you can do the job yourself and don't need the services of a professional locksmith company. Unfortunately, that puts you at risk of damaging the lock mechanism's inside components. Once it gets to that point, it will be much more difficult to repair the lock. We will certainly do our best despite any damage to your lock.
What is the time estimate for retrieval of a broken key?
Because of our experience and training, we can typically pull the pieces of a broken key out of a lock in approximately 30 minutes. However, we don't normally quote an exact time because we never want to focus on speed at the expense of quality service. It could take longer depending of your specific type of lock and key and the severity of the breakage.
Will I have to rekey my locks after you have extracted a key from one of them?
You won't have to rekey any of your locks when part of the key breaks off in it unless you want to do this. Working with a professional locksmith for this job ensures that the security of your lock remains the same as it was before you broke a key off into it.
Can I request your locksmith to create a spare key at the same time?
We are happy to provide you with a spare key in case you run into this problem in the future. The locksmith we send to your location will arrive with all the necessary tools to create a replacement key as well as a spare. If you have the necessary skills, you can create a duplicate key yourself.
Is it possible to open the door by bringing the two pieces of the broken key together?
Unfortunately, this is not possible. It is very important that you don't try to unlock your door once you realize that you have broken off a key inside of it. If you attempt to do this, you could push parts of the broken key even further into the mechanism of the lock. This makes it much more difficult to extract. Although we understand you're anxious to get back in your house, business, or car, we encourage you to contact us immediately rather than try to force a broken key into a lock.
We can't stress enough how important it is to contact us within a few minutes of realizing that your key broke off in your lock. As a professional locksmith company here, we hire only the most competent staff to ensure that they provide the highest quality of service to our customers. Please don't place any other items into the lock as a substitute for a key. Not only could these items break as well, they could cause you to push the broken key even further into the components of the lock.
Call Us 24/7 for Service At Your Location:
Here are some common scenarios that cause our customers to have to call us for emergency service:
After arriving at home and placing the key inside of your lock cylinder, you turn the key and see it break rather than unlock the door.
After finishing your work for the day, you go to unlock your car by inserting a key into the slot on one of the doors. The next thing you know, you're holding the key by only its head because its blade broke and got stuck in the lock. While you might feel embarrassed about the situation, it happens all the time to people at work, home, or when trying to open their car door.
Perhaps you have broken a key before or you recently looked at your keys and notice small cracks in either the blade or the head. It's good to be proactive about replacing worn keys to avoid this entire situation in the first place. However, We aren't here to give you a lecture about your keys. We are simply here to serve you should you need us.
Retrieving a broken key from a lock is one of those things that is much more difficult than it looks. If you have seen a locksmith do it in the past, it's important to remember that he or she had specialized training first. If you try to do it yourself, it could end up costing you a lot in extra repair costs, time, and inconvenience.
