Looking after your locks:


All locks have moving parts which need to move freely. Lubricating your locks at least once a year can help prolong the life of your long and prevent wear.

Check for damage:

Wear and tearSome locks experience a lot of use, so it’s a good idea to check if they have become worn. When turning the key, check that it does not stick – do you need to ‘wiggle’ it to get the lock to open? This problem will gradually get worse so it’s a good idea to think about changing a lock before it breaks completely.

Badly cut keys – this is a common reason for locks becoming worn or damaged. After having a new key cut always check it, compare it to your original key. If it seems stiff when its turning or you have to wiggle the key to get it to work, take the key back to where it was cut and tell them. If you don’t then it could result in the lock getting damaged and you being locked out.
