Chicago EMERGENCY LOCK REPAIR
Need a Lock Repaired? We're Always Available to Help
Lock repair when you need it the most
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.
There is never a convenient time to experience a broken lock. You may fear that someone tried to access your home or that it will be easier for them to do so when your lock isn't working right. The situation can become even more stressful when you encounter a broken lock at a time that many other locksmith companies are closed. Fortunately, We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to respond to your home locksmith needs.
Should I attempt to repair the lock on my own?
Unfortunately, we can't give you a definitive answer to this question without first evaluating the damage to your lock. We do advise against it as a general rule. It might look like a simple job at first but could quickly become overwhelming the further into the repair you get. You can save yourself the frustration and possibly the expense of repairing additional lock damage by calling us instead.
You can trust our years of experience working with all types of broken locks as we evaluate and repair the damage to your lock. In situations where we can't repair the lock, we will advise you on your various options for replacement as well as help you select the one that works best for the security and dEcor needs of your home.
What are some of the indications that it's time to replace my lock?
If your lock doesn't turn as easily as it once did, you have gotten a key stuck in it, or you want to take advantage of newer security features, it's probably time for repair or replacement. Your lock naturally endures wear as you use it every day. The differences in your ability to turn it will seem subtle at first and then become more pronounced. We can repair the lock of your home if you call us as soon as you notice a difference in its performance.
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 have to wait for a locksmith to repair my lock?
We typically spend 20 to 30 minutes repairing a home, garage, or auto lock. However, your wait may be longer or shorter depending on the unique properties of your lock and the extent of the breakage. We can give you a better time estimate once we arrive at your location and can evaluate these issues for ourselves. The locksmith technicians respect your time and will have your lock issue resolved as quickly as possible.
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?
Your lock may need replacement if this happens. We encourage you to call us right away and we will come to evaluate the situation. While you're waiting for a locksmith to arrive, try spraying lubricant into the key opening if you have any. This may or may not allow you to open the lock. Even if it does, it's best to follow through with having us evaluate the lock. You can consider it an early warning that the lock is beginning to malfunction.

How locks get damaged
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.
Not cleaning or maintaining the lock
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
Breaking a key off in a lock can damage the mechanism of the lock. To avoid damaging the lock further, call us right away for help.
