When leaving the house, even for a short period of time, (taking out the trash, or
getting the mail), always take a key with you. Most lockouts occur when you "step
It's always a good idea to give a spare key to a good friend or a family member that
lives near by.
If you are experiencing difficulty in locking a deadbolt or closing a door don't
wait. call a locksmith as soon as possible. Locks that are not aligned with the door
frame often fail leaving you locked out,even though you have the key. A simple plate
aligning would solve the problem.
If your lock is broken, do not try and fix it yourself unless you are trained to
do so. We get countless calls from customers who, while trying to "fix it" lost some
pieces, leaving us with no choice but replacing the whole lock.
If the key is difficult to turn in the lock, try spraying a little bit of lubricant
into the key hole.
If that doesnt help - call us.
When leaving your car, take a second and make sure you took the key with you.
Feel free to contact us at First Bay Locksmith with any question or concern.
