The Why

  • Keys break due to a variety of reasons:
  • Pressure
  • Use over time
  • Keys are intentionally made of soft metal alloys, or brass
  • Internal wear within the lock mechanism itself
  • Lock or Alignment issues

Broken Key Prevention

Prevention make a big difference, and broken keys are no exception. Some professional tips include:

  •  Lubricate your lock every 6 months.
  •  Keep spare keys on hand and change them out once you see a key is starting to wear down.
  •  Never force your key to turn when your lock fights back with resistance, no matter how small, as this can lead to long-lasting damage.
