What is re-keying?
Re-keying is the process of modifying or changing a lock, resulting in the old keys no longer working. During the re-key process, we edit the little components inside of the lock and therefore, fit a new key for the lock.
Call us today. Our trained technicians will come direct to your home to assess your lock to ensure it’s in good condition and able to re-key.
Broken keys: Reason, extraction and solution.
Why is my key is broken?
“Oh no! The key broke in my lock. How am I going to get it out? Do I need a new lock?”
This is an unfortunate situation, but Defense Locksmith can help and we may be able to save the lock or your ignition cylinder.
Keys are everything! They open doors, they keep doors locked and secured. They also start your vehicle so you can get from point A to point B. When they break you are stuck and unable to do any of these things.
It could happen for one of several reasons:
– The key is simply worn out or was used too many times.
– The lock jammed and you put too much force into it.
– The cuts of the key are too deep that there’s not enough strength for the key to withstand the pressure.
We have seen many broken keys from a house lock to an ignition cylinder.
With special extracting tools, cameras and cylinder scopes, we will extract the broken key or jammed piece that’s standing in the way of opening the lock.
Why do you need a Commercial handle?
High traffic and sustainability
You may be wondering why you need a handle that size and not just a simple door knob.
Big offices and Hospitals mostly use commercial levers for their doors, storage closets, patient rooms and bathrooms. These high traffic spaces require more than just a standard house door knob. These commercial levers are made to last longer for busy areas, and are more durable than just a simple door knob, not to mention how easy is it to simply pull down the handle and enter the room, rather than using more force to turn a knob. So easy!
Commercial levers come in various finished styles, shapes and colors with multiple uses. Whether it’s a simple closet that doesn’t need a keyed cylinder, an office that doesn’t need a key, or a bathroom style lock,
Defense Locksmith will work with you to hand pick the commercial lever that best suits your commercial business.
