Locks for lofts
This morning we got a call to repair a lock in a loft building near downtown Denver, CO. As you can see in the pictures below, the lock was fairly new, and for some reason the key stopped working.
The problem was that the keys has been copied so many times, and after awhile a key can get worn out. Many people think that if they just go to a hardware store and make a new key copy from the worn out old key they have, it will work.
Copying a door lock key from a worn out key, just copies the old and worn out key and will not resolve the problem you may have.
Broken key stuck in door
If your key is not working on the lock, before you try to force the lock open with the key, you should call a locksmith. Mile High Locksmith TM provides full locksmith services in Denver, Colorado, and always has standard locks and keys in stock to provide you with fast locksmith service on you locks or keys.
As you can see in the pictures, we removed the lock from the door and took the locks to our service van. Without using the old worn out keys, we created a new key for the lock, just like the original one. We make as many key copies as our customers ask for.
