Why is my key not working….it worked before!
At least once a month we get a phone call-“my key doesn’t work-it worked before but not anymore” As accredited London locksmiths we can normally assist over the phone. But as a general rule it is normally one of 3 things:
1 Its the wrong key…..okay an obvious one but it does happen (we know what needs to be done here)
2 The key has been cut-and cut badly-okay this a bit of an unfair thing to say. You can be the best at key cutting in the world but if you haven’t got an original, the key will not work as well. This is why it is important to go to a quality London Locksmith to get your keys cut. As good as Cobblers and DIY shops are it is not their specific expertise.
3 The key may have picked up dirt in your pocket-this is very common and can clog up the keyhole making your lock hard to use. Simply spray a generous amount of WD40 and this normally solves the problem!
If all else fails give us a call-high quality London locksmiths are hard to find, we certainly believe we are one of the few out there!
