As humans, we are prone to making mistakes. Oftentimes, we lose some of our most valuable possessions: keys, wallets, phones. The list goes on. When you have lost your keys or can’t get into your home or car, it helps to know there is a 24 hour locksmith nearby to assist you. If you could lose your head if it wasn’t attached to your body, check out these reasons you shouldn’t hesitate to hire a locksmith (and keep them on speed dial).

Lost or Stolen Keys

We are starting this list with one of the most common reasons people contact a locksmith. Don't hesitate to contact one after discovering your keys are missing. Contact the team at Keys Plus Locksmith immediately to have your locks replaced. After all, you don’t know where your keys are or who currently has them in their possession. Many people wait at least a week before they contact a locksmith. Personally, we don’t see the logic in that, as it’s extremely unsafe. 

When you hire a locksmith, not only can they replace your lock but improve your home’s security. They can even add a keypad lock to your door, for those who frequently misplace their keys. With this keypad lock, you can dial in a four-digit passcode to enter your home.

You Broke Your Keys

When was the last time you broke your key? If you have done it before, you probably can’t remember, it has been so long. Many of us, however, have never dealt with a broken key. This is good news, but no guarantee that your key won’t break over time. Eventually, keys wear down, which is known as metal fatigue. This may be happening to your key if you’re currently having difficulty getting inside your home.

Sometimes, keys can even break inside of the lock. When this happens, don’t hesitate to contact your local locksmith. If you are in Hollywood, FL, or the surrounding areas, Keys Plus Locksmith is just a phone call and a quick drive away. We will come prepared with the proper locksmith tools to either remove the broken key from the lock or replace the lock altogether.

Problems with Your Lock

There are many reasons why you might be experiencing lock issues. Your key may have jammed into it too aggressively or, worse, you recently had a break-in attempt. Your lock may also be old, in which case, it’s time for a replacement.

Whatever the cause, if you have problems locking and unlocking your door, it may be time to contact a locksmith. This is especially true if someone has attempted to break into your home.

Changed locks offer peace of mind. Additionally, we recommend that you change your lock if you have not done so recently. How many old contacts may still own a key to your house? Therefore, we recommend updating your lock every few years. Consider your malfunctioning lock as a blessing in disguise. You can upgrade to newer technology and even install the keypad lock previously mentioned.
