Why Do Keys Break In The First Place?
Perhaps you’ve wondered why keys sometimes get stuck or break?
These metal devices will eventually wear out, often after years of frequent use.
Consider that different metals possess varying levels of strength. Although some well-made keys last for long periods of time, not every key contains the same level of strength. Additionally, a wide variety of different types of keys exist today.
Other factors to consider include the weather and simple human error.
What we mean is, when it is cold out locks can potentially freeze causing the key to jam inside. Most often, we see cases where people are in a hurry and accidentally use the wrong key.
Are There Ways To Prevent Keys From Breaking?
To help maintain keys in good working condition, use them only for their intended purpose. Unfortunately, people in a hurry sometimes apply pressure on a key while turning it. Forcing the key into the lock or using the key to open a door (rather than relying on the door handle) places enormous stress on the metal. Bent keys won’t function correctly.
You should keep a lock lubricant handy. This is a great way to prevent a sticky lock from getting worse and causing your keys to break. You should also refrain from pressing a key if it turns slowly or sticks inside the locking mechanism. Instead, call us! We perform safe, correct key extractions. We’ll remove stuck or broken keys from the lock and replace malfunctioning or worn keys.
