What the average person will not understand is that there are thousands of lock systems. When a locksmith opens a lock he does not know what he or she is going to do to repair the lock. The damages can range from a faulty part to a warn out part. Locks are like time pieces. The springs can be weak or the travel rails are warn out. This can require the changing of a single part or maybe it is better to change the whole lock with an updated lock system. Empire City Locksmith takes pride in the less expensive path. FYI if an old lock is beautiful and serves the purpose repair it. Also when upgrading to a new lock system the system may require re-cutting holes and channels to accommodate a new lock. This is not so bad if the door will lend it self to the changes. Residential doors with old wood are beautiful and the lock system can be just as interesting in old design. Most of the time to stay in style with the door setting fixing the old lock requires a little time a patience. Don't forget to add some grease if it is a combination dead bolt and handset lock.
