If you are locked out of your property, the first step of the solution is door opening. There are safe techniques for doing this. Refrain from attempts to force the door open. This can cause serious damage to the lock and to the hinges too. The next step of the solution is lock rekey. This involves changing the configuration of the pins so that the device can work only with a new set of keys, which you will receive. This eliminates the risk of someone finding the missing key and using it to get in. If the lock cannot be rekeyed or of it is outdated or in bad shape, replacing it will be the better option.
Difficulties with inserting and turning the ignition key are not uncommon. It is important for problems with the key like bent shank to be ruled out first. In case such an issue exists, immediate key repair or replacement will be required. The type of repair which the ignition will get will depend on the cause of the problem. If the cylinder is filled with dust and dirt, thorough cleaning will be sufficient for restoring smooth operation. If the ignition has failed completely or broke, it has to be replaced. In general, every type of ignition will require an individual approach.
There is no need to wait for the old lock to fail completely in order to get a new one. Residential door locks should be replaced every five years or more often given the current technological pace in this field. If you wait longer, the devices can get greatly outdated and leave your property quite vulnerable to attacks. The ideal new lock should be made from tough metal like brass or steel and have features which make it resistant to all of the commonly used break-in techniques like drilling and sawing. In order to work properly, the new lock should be installed accurately and securely.
