Lock Repair Service
Consider the situation where you find yourself turning the key and yet there is no subsequent movement in the bolt. There are a number of things that could cause such a issue. One possibility is that the key may be a replacement key that was poorly and unprofessionally cut. There are of course those instances where the lock functions; however, the lock puts up an inordinate amount of resistance when turning the key. In this case, all that is required is a little bit of lubrication in the locking mechanism. Fighting a resistant lock with too much zeal may well cause one to break the key.
A common problem is when the bolt does not line up correctly with the door latch. This is due either to poor installation and incorrect measurements or warping in the case of wood doors. This problem will leave you having to lean against the door in order for the bold and latch to make a secure connection. Many times you will find that the bolt is constantly running into the striking plate instead of the mortise as it is supposed to.
The vast majority of the cases where the above mentioned issues occur are simply due to poorly and unprofessionally installed locks. If you require a locksmith for lock repair services and your residence or business is located in Toronto or the surrounding area then give FC Locksmith a call.
