I have a key, but I can't open my door

Did you find yourself inserting your key but couldn’t open your door? You should be aware of the numerous reasons why this problem happens. Locks can wear and tear over time, and the door may even get out of its alignment along the door frame. Most issues relating to this normally starts with a minor problem, and it gets so big until the lock becomes jammed. Give us a call at QuickPro Locksmith and we will be right there to fix the problem.

You have a key but can't open your door

When you can't open your door with the right key, the first step to take is to be sure whether the problem is from the lock or frame. If the key does not go straight into the lock cylinder, then the lock might be frozen (if it happens in winter), or there may be some broken pieces of items such as dust inside the cylinder. You can use a spray with WD-40 inside the cylinder if the lock wouldn’t open because of a frozen cylinder. 

If your key enters the cylinder but you can't turn the lock left or right, then you must first check whether it is the right key. Secondly, try and jiggle-wiggle the key inside the lock and see if it can unlock. When you jiggle the key inside the lock, pay attention to see if there is pressure on the bolt or latch. If you can't turn the key inside the lock, it is possible that the tailpiece of the door mechanism has broken. In some cases, your lock might have been compromised by an intruder. If you are unsure of what to do, please contact us at QuickPro Locksmith.
