Everyone has locked their keys inside of their house and ended up locked out of their own home. Most times, it happens with doorknobs since we don’t need the key to lock them behind us. If you are locked out of your home and you are reading this, whatever you do it is strongly recommended not to try to get in on your own by damaging the locks. Many people when locked out try to damage or break the locks with the hope of opening the door. Most locks are designed to stay locked even when damaged. Normally not only do the locks stay locked, but they become impossible to pick, making the job more difficult for the locksmith and costly for you. Overall, it is better time wise and cost wise to call a trusted professional locksmith and let them do it right the first time. In the long run, it will save a lot of time and money.

When you lose your house keys it is always important to try to assess how much of a risk there is of the keys ending up in the wrong hands. Even if there is a slight possibility of this happening, it is enough of a reason to re-key your locks and deny access to anybody trying to use that key. In the other scenario where you are absolutely sure that the lost keys cannot come back to haunt you there is always the option of cutting a new old key from your existing locks. At Metrolocks Locksmith Services we can do whichever option fits your needs.
From master key systems to making your locks work better, re-keying is used to serve many different functions. But, in most cases Re-keying is referred to changing the tumblers of the lock to fit a new key and this way denying access to anyone using a copy of an old key. There are many good reasons for re-keying locks and it is normally a cheaper alternative to replacing the locks.
It is always recommended to change the locks when you move to a new home or when you are not sure who has a copy of your key. Many times people have a locksmith re-key their locks to make them all fit the same key, and avoid the confusion of dealing with several different keys. Also, lock re-keying is used to make locks work better. For example, if you have ever had a problem when a key was not turning smoothly in the lock, it is commonly a problem that can be fixed with re-keying done by a professional locksmith.
Most locks are designed to be very durable and even the cheap ones will normally last at least five to eight years. But like everything man made, locks do break. When they do, repairing or replacing them is urgently required to avoid getting locked inside or outside of your own home.
If you are dealing with a simple standard doorknob or deadbolt you can replace the broken lock yourself by buying the exact same brand and model at the hardware store. The locks you buy at hardware store come with simple instructions, and in most cases it is an easy job. Like many things, installing a standard lock can be easy, but installing it well can be a little bit harder.
