Lock Repairs

Repair Locks


The Lock Wizard can repair locks that are existing and replace them with new locks.


Do you have broken locks? We can repair locks by installing new locks correctly to manufacturers specifications.


If your locks are broken, hard to use, or simply tarnished we can perform lock repairs or replace locks at your premises.


When we repair locks, the most common household locks we replace are your standard front or back door locks. Such door lock repairs are a daily occurrence.

Repair Front Door Locks

Is your front door lock stuck? Do you have a front door lock broken or hard to use? When we repair front door locks there are a variety of options to consider. Rest assured, we replace front door locks on a daily basis.

Repair Deadbolts

We are also called upon to replace deadlocks that are broken. When performing lock repairs, we see a variety of reasons for the breakages. Some of these breakages occur due to incorrect initial installation methods, often performed years earlier. Some simply fail due to age and use. We replace all types of deadlocks and mortice locks. We also perform lock repairs after break-ins. Unfortunately too many people wait until after they have been burgled to upgrade their security.

Lock Keying When Your Locks Are Repaired

When you engage our service to repair locks for you we will consult you to ascertain your expectations regarding your keying. Your new lock is normally supplied with two keys from the manufacturer, but we can alter the new lock to suit an existing key that you may have. Thereby reducing the number of keys you have to carry. If you are interested in investigating this option we will need to gain an overview of the rest of your keying arrangements. In some instances it may be better to rekey and key alike several of your door locks to cut down the number of keys you have to carry around.

Miscellaneous Lock Repair Problems

Another common problem we see is grease in locks that are 15 or 20 years old that has become hard. It goes hard like glue rather than lubricating like grease is supposed to do. This problem manifests itself in a lock that has seized up. It is usually a good quality lock that has stood the test of time, but been let down by the grease hardening. This can be time consuming to fix as it often requires all minor components to be individually cleaned.



Other lock repairs that we frequently deal with are issues related to subsidence. The varying moisture content of the soil, leaking pipes and building alterations such as patios adding extra weight. These can all make the ground and door frame move enough that the locks no longer line up. We can usually rectify this by simply adjusting the location of the striker plate for you.
