When Do You Need a Door Lock Repair?

Traditional Door Locks

The lock doesn’t latch properly – This occurs when the strike plate and latch are out of alignment.  It is also possible the door has shrunk, preventing the latch from reaching the strike plate.

The doorknob is loose – Doorknobs become loose as they age. There are various methods of tightening a loose doorknob. Our expert locksmith determines the best method to repair the knob. The knob is replaced if the spindle is worn.

Door works slowly or is frozen – During winter, it’s easy for external doors to freeze. Interior doors get dirty and eventually, all doors wear or break.

Key won’t fully turn in the lock – The lock is faulty or there is a misalignment if the key goes in but doesn’t turn. This happens when the lock is glued, worn or faulty. It also happens when something is blocking the keyhole or a cheap lock was fitted.

The door won’t shut close – This occurs when the door trim rubber is not sitting properly or the strike receiver was not adjusted correctly.

The door lock is damaged – If you notice the door handle is floppy when lifting, the lock mechanism is also faulty. It also happens when the key won’t work. This is a sign of a worn or faulty euro cylinder lock.

Broken key in the door – A broken key in a lock affects other facets of your home security. Avoid the temptation to try and crack the door on your own. With enough force, you could damage your door lock and cause irreparable damage.
