There are several reasons that can cause a key to get stuck or break off inside a lock, including a bent key or cracked key, wrong key, corrosion in the lock, and a worn lock or misaligned lock. Even you have a backup key on hand; you will need to remove the broken key part from the cylinder first before you can operate the lock again. Avoid attempting to remove the broken key without the required knowledge and tools as odds are high that you may end up damaging the internal components of the lock that may require more costly repairs in the future or a premature lock replacement.
At Park Locksmith, we have the necessary experience and expertise to extract broken and stuck keys from virtually every type of key-operated lock including deadbolts, drop bolts, mortise locks, level handle locks, rim-cylinder locks, and padlocks. Whether you have broken your front door key inside the lock or your mailbox key is stuck on your mailbox, we can be of your assistance.
We have access to the most advanced key extraction tools that allow us to carefully pull out even the smallest parts of a broken key from a lock without compromising its integrity and functionality. Once the key is successfully extracted, we assess the lock and make any repairs and provide the necessary solution for the new key on the spot.
