Broken key? It happens to all of us – you stick your key into the lock, turn it, and it snaps off without warning. When a key breaks in a lock it can cause a huge security risk as the key can be used to turn the lock, allowing anyone into your car, home or business without your permission.

The best way to prevent this is to ensure you are never turning the key too hard or forcing it into the lock. You should also check for cracks in the metal at least once a week. In the event you do end up breaking a key in the lock, give us a call immediately for broken key extraction service.


Car Key Broken in the Door Lock or Ignition

Is your car key broken in the door lock or the ignition? This is not only a hassle, it can cause your entire day to come to an abrupt halt as you may not have a spare key and thus can not drive. Car keys are one of the most common keys we extract as they are generally made of a metal that is not very strong and will eventually wear out due to constant use.

If you do not have a spare, we can create a new key for you on the spot after we perform your broken key extraction.

Broken Key in a Commercial Lock

Having a key broken in a commercial lock is just as bad, if not worse, than having a key broken in a residential lock. This is because most commercial buildings use high-security locks which can be easily damaged if the key is not removed by a professional. A broken key in your commercial lock is a security hazard to your business and needs to be extracted immediately.

Commercial locks also require specific tools in order to extract the key. Our expert team of highly trained broken key extraction locksmiths is able to extract and create any type of commercial key.
