Explanation for Broken Key Extraction

Assessment of the Situation: Our technician begins by assessing the lock and the broken key situation.

Selection of the Right Tools: Depending on the assessment, we select specialized tools designed for key extraction.

Insertion of the Tool: The tool is carefully inserted into the keyway of the lock.

Alignment with the Key Fragment: The tool is aligned with the cuts on the key fragment.

Extraction of the Broken Key: Our technician gently maneuvers the broken key out of the lock.

Inspection and Testing of the Lock: After extraction, we inspect and test the lock.

Key Replacement (if needed): We can cut a new key on the spot if required.

Don’t Attempt DIY: Trying to extract the key yourself can push it further in or damage the lock.

Avoid Using the Lock: Don’t try to use the lock until the broken key is extracted.

Call Us Immediately: The sooner you call, the quicker we can resolve the issue.

What to Do (and Not Do) If Your Key Breaks

Stay Calm: Panicking can make the situation worse. Take a deep breath and assess the situation calmly.

Check the Lock: If part of the key is protruding from the lock, try using pliers to gently pull it out.

Lubricate the Lock: Applying a spray lubricant like WD-40 can help ease the extraction process.

Use a Key Extractor Tool: If you have access to a key extractor tool, carefully insert it into the lock to hook onto the broken key piece and gently pull it out.

Call a Professional: If you’re unable to remove the key or if the situation seems complex, it’s best to call a professional locksmith.

Don’t Push the Key Further: Avoid using the broken key or any other object to try and push the broken piece out from the other side.

Don’t Use Excessive Force: Trying to extract the key with too much force can damage the lock mechanism, leading to more significant issues.

Don’t Dismantle the Lock Yourself: Unless you have experience, dismantling the lock in an attempt to remove the broken key can lead to further damage.
