Removing A Key That Is Broken Inside The Front Door Lock
If a key is broken inside a door lock, a Nonstop Locksmith tradesmen can use a variety of tools and techniques to remove the broken key and open your front door.
One method is to use special key extractor tools, which are designed to grip onto the broken key and pull it out of the lock. Our locksmith may also use a lubricant to loosen the key and make it easier to extract.
If the key is too tightly lodged in the lock or if the extractor tool does not work, the locksmith may need to disassemble the lock or drill to remove the broken key. This involves taking apart the lock and manually removing the broken key.
Once the broken key is removed, our locksmiths can then create a new key or duplicate the old key. If the lock is damaged, the locksmith may need to repair or replace the lock to ensure proper functionality and security.
Remember that attempting to remove a broken key yourself can often make the situation worse and cause more damage to the lock. It’s usually best to call a professional locksmith for assistance to ensure the problem is resolved safely and efficiently.

Can A Locksmith Make A House Key Without The Original Key?
Yes, a Nonstop Locksmith can make a house key without the original key, which saves you changing all the locks and getting new keys.
One way is to use a lock-picking tool to open the lock and then take measurements of the internal components to create a new key.
Another approach is to use key impressioning, where the locksmith inserts a blank key into the lock and then files it down based on the marks made by the pins or wafers inside the lock.
However, it’s important to note that the process of making a key without the original can be more challenging and time-consuming than duplicating a key from an existing one.
Additionally, some locks are more difficult to pick or impression than others, and the locksmith may need to use specialised tools or techniques to create a new key.
Can A Locksmith Open A House That Is Not Yours?
Generally, a locksmith should not open a house that is not the customers without proper written authorisation. It is illegal to enter someone else’s house or business without their consent, even if the intention is to help.
As a part of our security assessment when opening front and back doors, we will ask you to provide proof of your identity and ownership of the property. This includes showing identification, providing a utility bill or lease agreement with your name and address, or contacting a landlord or property manager to verify your credentials.
If you are attempting to gain access to someone else’s property without their consent, a locksmith will not provide assistance. It’s important to always respect the privacy and security of others and to seek legal channels for resolving any disputes or issues related to property access.
