A Look at Some Common Lock Problems

Locks are designed to keep your home, business, and belongings secure. However, lock problems can cause frustration and worry if you don’t know how to solve them.

This video discusses some of the most common problems you may experience with your locks. If you are having trouble opening the lock using a new key, your key may not be properly cut. Check to see whether old keys work—if not, you may need to address corrosion inside the mechanism using a silicone or graphite spray. You can also remove the doorknob to inspect the locking mechanism for damage or wear.
