Don’t Fight With Your Front Door

Is it hard to get in the door when you come home from work? Do you have a difficult time turning the key in the lock even if you don’t have your hands full? If the key doesn’t turn easily when you go to lock or unlock your door, it’s time to get help.

It’s Not You, It’s the Key

Keys can get worn over time. Before you blame the lock, check your key. Try opening the lock with a spare key. If the spare works better, it’s time to get a new key made.

Get a Lock Doctor

If switching up the key doesn’t bring better results, it may be time to get professional help. The front door takes a lot of abuse from frequent use and exposure to the elements. Sometimes tumblers or other moving parts stick or experience other problems. A locksmith can service your lock and put you and your front door on speaking terms again.

A locksmith will also tell you if your lock is worn out and needs to be replaced. Difficulty turning the key in a lock can indicate it is failing. A weakened lock provides reduced security.
