There are lines every lock may cross at some point in their lives. It can be due to many different reasons that stem from neglect or misuse, intentional or not. Locks eventually decay or break at some point. It is indeed a huge pain and hindrance to our everyday life that’s why regular lock maintenance and checks are important. You can choose to check on your own or ask your local locksmith to perform a thorough inspection.
However, how far is too far gone when it comes to a lock being repairable? Is it when the other half of a key is stuck inside the mechanism? Is it when rust inside has rendered the gears immobile? Or is it when an unknown force busts the keyhole open, making it almost unrecognizable such as the one in our featured image? Perhaps, it’s obvious that this one is indeed too far gone.
If this happens to be the situation you find yourself in, perhaps an overall lock replacement is the right choice for you. A locksmith may not be able to do much “repair” to something that isn’t quite there anymore. Luckily, our team at The Lisburn Locksmiths have a large selection of door and gate locks that may pique your interest. From aesthetic to function, we guarantee that we have something in our collection that will suit your taste.
Our locksmiths are especially trained and experienced to give you the best advice when choosing the new lock you want, especially when you prefer something that isn’t easy to bust open like the last one. If this sounds like something you’re interested in, give us a call or look through our highly informative website now.
