Sometimes clients forget their keys, or just lose them in other cases they stepped outside and the door slammed or in more rare cases the key broke inside the lock, in all of this scenario our technician will arrive at the house, look at the lock to determine which mechanism this locks have and pick it, picking can take few minutes to an experienced locksmith but sometimes longer if the lock is old or just stubborn.. in rare occasions like when a key broke inside the technician will not be able to reach the inside and will have to drill the lock out and replace it with a new one.
Usually happens when people are moving into a new home and for security purposes wants to have a new key, or prevent from an old key holder to get in, in this situation the technician will take out the locks and take it apart to extract the core, inside the core, he will find the pins that are used to lock and unlock and discard them, by entering a new key with different cuts numbers and matching pins he basically changes the heights of the pins so it will be matched to the cuts of the new keys and won’t work on the old, this way we can achieve a new key for an old lock, pretty useful method if you don’t want to spend too much money on replacing your entire locks around the house.
A fresh installation is taking place usually when someone wants to increase security like adding a deadbolt to his/her garage door that leads to the house or maybe add it to an interior door that cannot be locked, those are the main reason we see people do a fresh installation, the other one which comes not often is when the client purchase a custom made lock or heavy-duty lock that the size is bigger than the normal size doors usually have, in this cases we create a hole and expand it with special tools we use until we match the size to the locks, there is some risks in doing that and you have to be extra careful but here at locksmith now we do this on a daily basis so you can rest your mind and relax.
