Lock Problem in Glossop

Lock Problem in GlossopWe get frequent calls from customers with a lock problem in Glossop at Nimbus Locksmith. A common problem is when a wooden door lock will not lock. It is a real problem for elderly people living alone or single women. They start to lock their door before retiring for the night and suddenly the door will not lock. Chances are, the wooden door has been slowly warping for some time. The deadbolt of the mortise lock in the door is no longer aligned with the strike plate in the door jamb. This happens when doors are old and exposed to weather. Nimbus Locksmiths remedy that by realigning the strike plate. That may leave the door frame with unsightly holes. We repair that with some matching wood putty or a blank plate.

In Glossop a lock problem in your door may be revealed when your key will not turn the tumbler. A frequent reaction to that problem is to try and force the key. The result is often another lock problem. The tumbler will not turn and now there is a broken key in the lock. Our locksmiths have the tools to extract the broken key. The spindle in the lock may be faulty and need replacing. If so, we have the spare parts and tools to complete the job then and there. If it is just a worn key, we can take the two halves and make a new one that will turn the tumbler. You might be surprised at how often the problem is the use of the wrong key.
