Broken keys in locks

Removing broken keys from locks Woolloongabba locksmith BrisbaneDo you have a broken key you need removed from a lock.  Our Woolloongabba locksmiths are very good at removing broken keys.  We have many specialised tools and methods for pulling out a broken key from a lock.  Not all broken keys come out easy.  Some keys need to be removed very carefully and care taken not to push the broken key further into the lock causing more problems.  While often times the broken keys can be removed easily by our locksmiths it is a risk if you try to remove it yourself.  The risk is that the key can be pushed into the lock, making it harder to remove.

Any lock can get a broken key.  Some locks are more prone to broken keys then others and care must be taken.  Roller doors are notorious for keys breaking.  The key can break if keys are left in the door and the door goes up or just by rolling up the door by pulling the key.  Garage doors can generally have smaller weaker keys then other locks and they do snap easier.

Security screen door locks are another common lock that keys get broken in.  Especially sliding security screen doors.  If the key is left in a sliding security screen door and the glass door is pushed closed, the glass door can catch the key and snap it off.  Always removing the key from the sliding door is a good idea.

When getting keys cut for locks that are at risk of snapping, choosing the right key blank can help.  Brass keys are more malleable then steel and aluminium keys and can bend back into shape if slightly bent.  Aluminium keys easily snap clean off although it does take quite a bit of force to break them.
