The most common reasons we get a locksmith call

Over the years we’ve noticed that all the reasons people call a residential locksmith tend to break down into a few simple scenarios.


  • The key breaks, jams, or needs to be duplicated or in some other way needs repair. This, for example, could be because you have a key with a chip (think of those keys with the black covers, securely hiding a chip).
  • The cylinder or lock breaks. It rusts over years of use on an exterior door, or the bolt breaks after being forced into a bolthole over and over.
  • Someone forgets the combination to a lock or the combination lock itself breaks. We always recommend that customers keep their combination and keypad codes as securely as they do their bank codes or other important documents. Yet these combination and keypad codes often go missing, or the instructions on how to change the codes do.

 No need to panic if any of these situations is happening for you. Call us and we can solve your issue.

Tips before you call

First, if the issue is any kind of stickiness or stiffness with the device – such as a key stuck in a lock, a bolt that won’t move, or a lever that won’t turn – try lubricant. A little bit of lubricant can go a long way, and we can’t tell you how many customers we’ve visited only to solve the issue in minutes.

Second, Do Not Force any part of the lock. Don’t use a screwdriver to try to unjam a stuck key, especially on a car! We’ve seen many well-intentioned but shortsighted people scratch their car doors desperately using a screwdriver or other sharp tool to fix a stuck key.

Our guarantee

Alamo Key & Lock guarantees same-day response to all of your key and lock issues. Our 100% work guarantee covers our workmanship and parts. All of our residential locksmiths are fully licensed by the State of Texas and insured.

The most important thing to us is that our customers are satisfied and happy. Since we began our business back in the 1980s, before the internet, building trust one customer at a time was the number one way we grew our business. One satisfied customer would tell another. That kept us going then, and it still does today.

Our Reviews and Locksmith Projects

We know that choosing a residential locksmith can be a challenging task for anyone because you must trust that person with the part of your home that protects and secures you and your family. Safety is priority. That’s why we do our best to show our customers that we are real people, real professional locksmiths with a longstanding solid reputation. With news reports showing cases of  unsavory locksmith activity, it makes perfect sense that customers would be more vigilent about a company’s reputation.

 Check out our Reviews to see what real people have to say about working with us.

Check out our locksmithing social media pages to see what activity we are up to. We post on these pages regularly so that our customers can see we are real and provide quality work. Plus, it’s fun!


Gunsafes, standard safes, and High Security Safes 

We wanted to give a special nod to our customers who are interested in our safe services. Since Texans love guns – and if you don’t, it’s okay! – we work with a lot of customers who need new gun safes, gun safes repaired or opened, and professional advice on how to have a gunsafe safely stored in a house that has children in it. We sell gunsafes as well as offer professional consulting on them. Check out our Safes page for more.

Examples of Our Residential Locksmith Service


Protective strip on front door frame prevents burglary

Protective strip on front door frame prevents burglary

Here we have one customer who was worried about their home security. We installed a new protective strip on the door frame that prevents burglers from kicking through the door. The strip has three large metal screws that fasten into a nearby stud, making it impossible to knock down. This is a simple and extremely effective way to prevent robbery. Better safe than sorry.
