Locksmith Whitby Picks Home Locks when you are locked out of your home, and you call for our team in what we call a “House Lockout”. Locksmith Whitby Picks Home Locks service will come to your house, pick the lock and let you inside in minutes. Locksmith Whitby Picks Home Locks services will make sure to try and pick the lock first, and if not possible, drill the lock and replace it with a new one that works perfectly.
Usually a “house lockout” happens when you lock the doorknob from the inside, and close the door behind you, and then all of a sudden you realize you forgot your keys inside! This sort of thing can happen to anyone, it’s an automatic action we do when leaving. We just twist the little part on the back of the doorknob and close the door. It also happens that you just lost or forgot your keys at a house of a friend or family, or at work and it’s already after hours and too late to get the keys. If you misplaced your keys and can’t get into your house, give us a call and we’ll be glad to help you unlock the door and get you back in.
Besides house lockouts, many service calls are for key extraction from the door lock, usually deadbolts. It happens when you mixed up the keys and tried turning the lock with the wrong one, or if the lock is stuck.
We have a few ways of unlocking a doorknob or unlocking a deadbolt. One of the most ancient ways of unlocking, is actually lock picking. With a set of tools, we try and mimic the action of a key, which is when you insert it, the cuts on the key are allowing us to actuate the lock mechanism by turning it. Lock picking is not extremely difficult, but it does require some practice and skills. Most locks may be picked, depending on the type of lock, key-way and level of security, but some just can’t be picked, especially the new smart keys which have a new system.
If lock picking is unsuccessful, we will extract the cylinder. We use a small drill bit, drill into the head of the key-way, trying to break the security pins that are preventing the lock from turning.
