When you hear the word “broken locks,” what do you think of? Most people don’t give it much thought, but they should. In this blog post, we’ll talk about why broken locks are more serious than you might have first thought and how to prevent them from happening in your home in Toronto.
We all know that a lock is supposed to keep intruders out of our homes, right? Well, not if the lock is broken! You can’t expect a broken lock to protect anything inside your house because thieves will just walk right on through. But there’s more bad news: once someone has been inside your property and discovered how easy it was for them to get in, they’re going to come back again looking for more.
What you can do when you have broken locks?
- Replace the lock with a lock that is of good quality. A well-made, properly installed deadbolt will make it much harder for burglars to break into your home and can keep them out even if they do find another way in
- Install locks on all doors leading outside whether or not they are used often. Keep windows closed and locked at night.
How much time will it take to get my broken lock fixed?
The time is variable, but it might take about an hour to get a broken lock fixed. They will have to replace the inner workings first, and then they’ll install your lock set.

But how do you prevent your locks from breaking?
- Regularly inspect your locks and practice good habits. A few minutes every week to check on the locks in your home will help protect you from thieves, burglars, fire hazards and more.
- Keep all of your keys with you at all times so that one cannot be stolen or misplaced by accident.
- Don’t use makeshift tools as a way around broken lock problems- call for professional assistance instead!
- A little preparation can go a long way in protecting yourself against theft and break-ins. These steps might seem like common sense, but they’re easy enough to forget when life gets busy – which leaves you vulnerable to burglary if any of these things happen: key lost or stolen, damage from an attempted break-in on other doors/windows.
How will a locksmith fix broken locks?
- A locksmith Toronto will most likely replace your lock right on the spot. This is great if you are home and have a spare key for when the repairman leaves.
- If you’re not at home, they can provide an emergency service so that you don’t have to go without your door/window security while waiting days for new keys or locks- which could come in handy, say if someone breaks into one of those doors/windows you mentioned earlier!
- When it comes down to how long these fixes should take, about 45 minutes is enough time for a professional locksmith to handle replacing any broken lock. They’ll measure up the hole (the width and depth), cut out old pieces with heavy-duty equipment then put everything back together again.
