Problems with locks and keys can occur at any time. The important thing is to know what action to take to deal with them quickly.
A sticky lock isn’t an urgent problem as long as it works, but what happens when you can’t turn the key inside the keyway at all and get locked out? The first step of the solution involves opening the door. There are special techniques designed for safe and quick opening. Proper examination and testing will reveal the actual cause of the problem. If the lock is blocked and/or dry, it should be cleaned and lubricated. If it’s out of sync, the repair will involve accurate adjustment. When the lock is worn or broken, it should be changed.
Ignition Key Replacement
The blade is broken or the chip doesn’t work? The only solution is to get a replacement key. If the key breaks inside the ignition, the pieces have to be extracted carefully. If the ignition lock cylinder was damaged, it will need to be either fixed or replaced depending on how bad the situation is. Lost your car key? This is one of the most serious emergencies as someone may use it to steal the vehicle. Opening the car door is just the first step of the process. Rekeying the ignition will prevent the use of the old key, and with a brand new transponder key you can be rest assured that you are the only one who can start your automobile.
When a door lock has been snapped, drilled or damaged in any other way by intruders it has to be replaced straight away. The door and its hardware should also be fixed so that the security of the home or office is restored completely. The same steps are necessary when the burglars have entered through the window. No locks have been manipulated? They should still be checked and fixed or upgraded, if necessary.
