If any of your locks are broken or in disrepair, it’s important to have them fixed or replaced as soon as possible. Otherwise, you are leaving your home vulnerable to break-ins.

Oftentimes, locks wear out over the years and need to be replaced. If your keys are getting stuck in your locks, this is more than likely the case. Another sign of wear and tear includes loose, jiggling parts to any part of the lock, including the box and strike plate.

Sometimes, you want new locks to upgrade your security system. For example, deadbolt locks provide an extra layer of protection for your home in comparison to traditional locks. Smart locks allow you to access your home without a key, and some even let you lock and unlock your door remotely from your phone.

Another reason to call your locksmith is if you feel that there has been a security breach in your home such as a break-in, lost keys, or if you’re moving into a new place. If this is the case, sometimes we can re-key your home instead of replacing the locks altogether. With re-keying, we leave the existing lock but change the keys that are needed to open the lock. This is ideal if your locks are still in working order, but you want to change the keys.

No matter what the reason, if you are in need of new locks, give the locksmiths at A-1 Lock and Safe in Chapel Hill, NC a call today.
