Key Extraction Service
All Your Lock And Key Needs In Salt Lake City
Keys, although most of the time crucially handy in our day to day lives, can sometimes become a real burden. If you have gone to turn your key in the lock and it has snapped while doing so, it can leave you in a real bind. Especially if the place you are trying to get in to is your home, business or even your car.
Why Do Keys Snap In Locks?
Unfortunately, and like a lot of things, keys can become weathered over time. Exposure to extreme heat or cold can weaken the keys and make them more susceptible to snapping. Not only, but continuous use can also weaken the metal of the key, meaning that, at its worse, it can snap in your lock as the pressure of turning becomes too much for it. Unfortunately, there is not much you can do is these types of situations to prevent the key from weakening, but keeping an eye out for the warning signs may help. If your key is catching in the lock and/or not turning properly, you should think about having your key replaced before the worst happens and it becomes broken in the lock.
However, if this does happen, don’t panic! A1 Locksmith operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to come out to your location and extract your key for you.
