Repair & Maintenance

Keeping Your Home Secure

Properly maintaining locks goes a long way to ensure the security of your home. With constant use comes wear and tear, so if you start to notice things like keys sticking in a lock or a latch that doesn’t retract all the way making it difficult to get the door open, it’s time to call Unlockit to service your door hardware.

Sometimes, maintenance alone is not enough to resolve lock malfunctions. In those cases, we always attempt to repair the hardware first to provide you with the most cost-effective solution. Our technicians carry many common parts on their trucks in order to conduct repairs on the initial visit. However, if we encounter an issue that is not repairable or requires a unique part that the technician doesn’t have on the truck, the technician will discuss ordering and replacement options with you.

If you are experiencing any issues with your locks, contact us today to schedule an appointment!
