Removing a broken key from a lock can be difficult

Broken key extraction is when you remove a broken key from a lock. This can be done with or without the help of a locksmith. If you try to remove the key yourself, be careful not to damage the lock.

We work with a variety of customers at all levels of experience. We can help you with any type of broken key extraction needs you might have!

The first step in any broken key extraction is to determine whether your lock needs service or repair to start, ask yourself these questions…

  • Does the lock work properly?
  • Is the lock damaged?
  • How old is the lock?
  • What type of lock is it?
For example, if you are trying to extract a broken key from an interior deadbolt and the bolt or door has been damaged, sometimes we can remove the damaged part and reattach it to another piece of wood. We can also just reattach the handle or latch it to a piece of wood so that it no longer functions. However, there may be times when even replacing parts will not solve your problem. If this is true, then you should consider replacing your entire door. This might be less expensive than replacing a few different parts and requires less work.

The next step in breaking a key out of a lock is to determine whether it is possible to remove the broken key

Some locks are very difficult to remove a broken key from. This can be because the door or lock has been damaged in some way or because the broken key is stuck on something inside the lock. If this is the case, call Blue Star for help.

In order for us to extract your broken key from your lock, we will need access to the inside of your door. We do not want our customers paying for services that they are not able to complete themselves. Therefore, we charge a small fee to unlock your door from the inside of your home. This includes accessing the lock, removing the broken key, and securing the lock for you.

After we unlock your door for you, we will remove the broken key from your lock. If there is something lodged inside of your lock, we will try to extract it and remove it if possible. If the broken key has caused damage to the interior of your locks, such as jamming up a spring or other internal workings, we may need to repair this damage first. This repair service can be costly depending on what needs to be repaired. At Blue Star Locksmith Services, we try to determine whether or not it makes sense for us to repair broken key extraction jobs before we begin working on them. In some cases, it might be less expensive to replace the lock than repair it.

If you have a broken key in your lock and would like assistance, we will help fast!
