About this deal

Locksmith Services Longmont is a mobile locksmith service that’s local to the Northern Colorado area. Sometimes a Customs Fee is charged, then the package is picked up from the post office, or when it is delivered - unfortunately, we cannot be responsible these fees - check on the internet for any potential fees that might be incurred. On your credit / debit card / payment statement, the charge will appear in your local bank currency. UKBumpKeys cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to any property caused by use of our tools, completing a purchase means you understand and agree to this. Small jigsaw and hacksaw blades can sometimes be just the right tool you need to remove a broken key from a lock.

Some handy tools to have when trying to remove the broken piece yourself includes pliers, tweezers, jigsaw blades, small pieces of wire like paperclips, and superglue. It’s important to be careful when first grasping the broken key bit, because grabbing it incorrectly with pliers can inadvertently send it further into the lock. To operate a key extractor, stick it into the keyway and push all of the pins up as high as they’ll go with the extractor. By bending a paperclip into a straight line, the paperclip can be inserted into the top of the keyhole above the broken key bit. Always remember that a key broken off in a lock shouldn’t be touched or messed with unless there’s a strategy behind it.Use a towel or a rag to wipe up any WD-40 that drips from the lock down the door after spraying the keyhole and around the broken key bit. We offer competitive pricing for locksmith services in Longmont, Denver, Boulder, Loveland, Fort Collins, and more.

If you find yourself in this situation and should you decide to attempt to remedy the problem yourself, consider some of the following tips and tricks for removing broken keys from locks. A dry lubricant such as Dry Lock Lube won’t leave residue that could collect dirt and grime over time, unlike an oil-based lubricant. Once you've hooked the extractor onto the teeth of the broken key, carefully twist and pull the tool out.

If the keyhole is big enough, it’s sometimes possible to push the jigsaw or hacksaw blade into the top part of the keyhole, pushing it far enough back into the lock, into a position where the serrations on the blade can be used to pull the broken bit out. Finding yourself suddenly locked out because of a broken key can create a very frightening situation, but thankfully, a good locksmith can promptly solve the problem. Businesses and homeowners who have access to additional keys should immediately leave the disabled lock alone and first gain entry to the building through another door or window. Tweezers don’t have the same pulling strength that pliers do, and with the lubricant, tweezers can sometimes slip off the broken bit and be ineffective. We also offer a Signed 1- day Service for important packages - this functions in the same way as the One-Day service, but with extra signing security.

Alternatively another type of obstruction has been inserted into the lock and is causing you problems. I mean, if there's a broken key in the lock, or some other object, there;s not much chance of opening the lock.Most locks found in residences and escape rooms within the United States have wide-open keyways, so the shape of your extractor doesn’t matter so much. By pushing the extraction tool deep into the top part of the keyhole, the broken key can catch on the groves when pulling out the tool, removing the broken bit.
