FAQs

Find answers to common questions about locksmith services

The difficulty of picking house locks depends on several factors, including the type of lock, its complexity, and the skill level of the person attempting to pick it. High-quality locks with advanced security features are designed to be more resistant to picking. However, no lock is entirely pick-proof, and skilled locksmiths or individuals with the right tools and knowledge can pick many common locks. 

The time it takes to pick a lock on a door varies based on factors such as the type of lock, the complexity of the lock mechanism, and the proficiency of the person attempting to pick it. In skilled hands, some simple locks can be picked in a matter of minutes, while more complex or high-security locks may take longer. However, it's essential to note that lock picking is an unlawful activity when done without the owner's consent.

 

Keeping a key in the door lock does not necessarily make it harder for burglars to pick the lock. In fact, it can potentially make it easier for an intruder to manipulate the lock. Leaving a key in the lock could provide an opportunity for someone with malicious intent to use tools to turn the key or attempt to pick the lock more easily. 

 

The time it takes to change a lock depends on factors such as the type of lock, the complexity of the installation, and the number of locks being changed. On average, a skilled locksmith can change a standard lock in about 20 to 30 minutes. However, more intricate locks or multiple locks may extend the time needed for the process. It's recommended to consult with a professional locksmith for a more accurate estimate based on your specific requirements.

 

Residential lock extraction is the process of removing a broken key or other obstruction from a residential lock. This can be a complex process, depending on the type of lock and the damage that has occurred.

  • The lock is damaged in some way, such as from a break-in attempt

 

The cost of residential lock extraction will vary depending on the complexity of the job and the locksmith's rates. However, you can expect to pay between $50 and $200 for this service.

 

The time it takes to extract a broken key or other obstruction from a lock will also vary depending on the complexity of the job. However, most locksmiths will be able to complete the job in under an hour.
