Charlotte ANYTIME LOCK REPAIR
Need a Lock Repaired? We're Always Available to Help
When a broken lock prevents you from getting into your house
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.
Whether it's Murphy's Law or just bad luck, broken locks seem to happen at the worst possible time, which is rarely during regular business hours. Whether you need a lock repaired, replaced, or need help with another common locksmith issue, just give us a call any time to request immediate assistance. A certified and uniformed locksmith technician will arrive to your location in under 30 minutes.
Should I attempt to repair the lock on my own?
It isn't always possible for us to answer this question without knowing the extent of the lock damage. We are happy to evaluate your lock and answer that for you, but it's usually better just to have a certified locksmith handle the situation from the start. When you don't have locksmith training and experience, you could end up damaging the lock further and will need to replace it.
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 are some of the indications that it's time to replace my lock?
One of the most obvious indications of a failing lock is when you place a key in it and it doesn't turn as easily as it once did. You may also need to replace it if anyone broke a key off in the lock or if you simply want to upgrade for better security features. Like everything else, locks wear out with everyday use. We recommend replacement once you experience a noticeable change in ease of opening the door. This can help to prevent an emergency later.
Putting too much pressure on a lock to force it to open is one of the biggest reasons that locks break. Another is that the lock has just worn out over the years. Experiencing resistance when you attempt to open a lock is a sure indication that it could break soon.
How long will I need to wait while you repair my lock?
The average time we spend on this type of service call is usually less than half an hour. Of course, individual factors play into whether you wait a longer or shorter period of time. Every lock is different, and we won't know precisely how long it will take to repair your lock until we see it in person. However, you can trust our expert locksmiths to work as quickly as possible while still maintaining high service quality.
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.

Common causes of damage to locks
A lock can become damaged for a variety of reasons. One of the most common things we see is damage from someone attempting to pick a lock. While this can occur from someone trying to break into the home, it's more often a case of someone who lives there trying to get in after losing his or her key.
Lack of routine maintenance or cleaning
When you don't clean or maintain your lock, it can succumb to everyday wear much sooner. The opening starts to corrode and fills with various types of debris. WD-40 or a similar lubricant is the best thing to use for cleaning. If you use a cleaner with abrasive properties, it could damage the lock instead.
Excessive heat, cold, rain, or wind can all take a toll on your lock. This is something that many people fail to consider. We recommend always checking the condition of your locks whenever you might experience any weather extremes.
Breaking a key inside of 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.
