From breaking a key inside the lock to replacing the entire door, a locksmith will be able to help you. If you don't have to return to your home or car, consider calling the locksmith right after rush hours or scheduling a service call later in the day, if possible. Many professional locksmiths can change the keys on the locks, which involves removing and replacing existing springs and pins so that old keys no longer work and new ones do. When hiring a locksmith, keep safety in mind, as you will potentially have access to your house or car.
Locksmiths can use a lever to open the car door, but in some cases, they will need to use a wedge to open the door wide enough to open it manually. In the case of cars, you can sometimes make a spare key at a dealer, which is usually more expensive than a locksmith. You will need a locksmith to remove the key to avoid damaging the lock and have to replace it as well. Think about your options before calling a locksmith to avoid the service call fee if a locksmith has to drive for service and has thought of another solution too late.
If you are not sure what type of lock to buy for a door in your house, ask your locksmith for advice. Locksmiths can do many different things to help you with your house keys and locks, including letting you in when you're locked up. By necessity, most professional locksmith services are performed in the customer's home, office, business or car.
