Common Causes of Broken Keys

- There was already a broken key fragment inside the lock.
- The lock isn’t working properly.
Beware of the DIY Approach for a broken key in lock
We never recommend forcing a lock containing a key fragment! While it is possible to use lubricant and needle-nose pliers, a saw blade, or a flathead screwdriver to remove a broken key, you run the risk of making a bad situation worse.
If you push the key in further or insert the tool the wrong way, part of the key blade that is already in the lock will move more inside the locking mechanism.
If you wait for us to come and assist, we will quickly assess the situation and use our professional tools to do the job correctly.
With our master locksmiths, you get broken key removal and peace of mind.
