Emergency Locksmith Explains What to Do if Your Key Breaks Off in a Deadbolt Lock, New York, New York

When your key breaks off in the lock, it pays to have the number of an emergency locksmith on hand. Before you start searching for a 24-hour locksmith in your area, keep in mind that there are a few methods you can try to get your key out.

Keep in mind that you should be careful not to cause any further damage and that you’ll probably need to contact a lock installation pro at some point in the future to ensure your lock is still in good condition. If you don’t have a spare key, you’ll need a locksmith to replace your broken one.

Most importantly, don’t leave the key in the lock and wait until later to handle the problem. While it’s stuck in there, your home or office will be vulnerable.

emergency locksmithIf the key broke off, but a significant portion of it is still sticking out, you could be in luck. Try pinching the key between your fingers and pulling it out of the lock. If you have a set of needle nose pliers on hand, you can use them to help you remove it.

On the other hand, you may find that the key is stuck in the lock. In this situation, you’ll need to get in touch with a 24-hour locksmith. Before you make the call, you can try using a flathead screwdriver that’s small enough to insert into the lock, using it to dislodge the key just enough to pull it out.

Keep in mind, though, that doing this may cause further damage. In most cases, you’re better off contacting an emergency locksmith than trying to solve the issue yourself. They’ll fix your problem and your lock.
