How to Recognize the Problem of a Broken Lock?

Many people worry about lockpicks and tools, but there are situations where it’s best to call an Emergency Locksmith.

If the key does not turn in the lock and does not come out, then the situation warns that the secret is blocked. The malfunction occurs in 3 cases:

  • When using a non-original unlocking device. A poorly made copy will not fit the design.
  • When trying to break in. The device refuses to accept “native” equipment.
  • When the key breaks. Elements made from cheap metal quickly fail. The use of parts for other purposes than intended contributes to the problem. For example, when opening beer bottles or using it as a screwdriver.

If the key cannot be removed, but it moves in the locking mechanism, then the situation warns that the device is clogged. Sand and dust that get into the sensitive secretion prevent the structure from working. If used carelessly, small debris penetrates with the dirty barrier element, accumulating over time. The device can be deliberately broken by attackers when attempting to break into it.
