Frequently Asked Questions
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 will take much less time if you decide to simply swap out the old lock with the same model. The door is already adjusted for that kind of lock, so it's a quick installation process. If you want to change the kind of lock you use, it could take a little more time. But not to worry, our locksmiths can easily make the minor alterations required to accommodate the new lock of your choice.
Will a lock change damage my door?
Definitely not! There is no reason a standard lock change should cause any damage to your door. Our experienced locksmiths take utmost care to protect the integrity of the locks and doors they work on.
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.
This provides great flexibility for customers who don't want to carry house keys or those who might have a habit of losing them. Also, if you happen to forget the combination or pin number, it's easy to reset them. This can be one less headache for you than if you had to rekey all the locks in the case of a lost key. Another feature most smart locks have is the ability to also allow for a keyed entry for family members who prefer that option.
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.
Please call us as soon as you are alerted to a problem with your lock. Sometimes we can avoid a more expensive lock change if we get to the problem right away. If it's possible to repair the lock, we will do so.
If there wasn't a forced entry incident that caused the damage, it's likely the lock has worn out over time. You might not know locks can wear out because of extended use, but it's possible. We are happy to assess your lock and determine what can be done to repair or replace it.
