Common Reasons For Changing Locks

A lock change is a common request we receive from our valued customers because over time, locks and keys may become worn or damaged.

  • New residential construction that needs locks installed.
  • Adding doors with locks to new sections of a home.
  • Moving into a new residence and thus want peace of mind regarding locks and keys

Decorative replacement – sometimes our valued customers just want a nicer looking lock to match the overall Decor of a house.

An old lock breaks that’s on a door which is frequently used. Often rust can damage a lock. In addition, forcing a key into a lock that should be cleaned and lubricated will wear the cylinder mechanism down faster.

Important Note

When extracting a key from a lock or opening a lock for another reason, a locksmith should never start by drilling the lock. If a locksmith is working along these lines, call us instead. Drilling a lock permanently destroys the mechanism. In that case, you will indeed need a new lock. Avoid unprofessional locksmith companies in Houston, instead, call upon Alamo Key & Lock locksmiths 713-688-3887

Lock Change

Combination Locks

Alamo Key & Lock can repair, install, and change combination locks on many different residential properties. We often recommend combination locks on pharmacy cabinets, fences and gates, and interior lockers. The most common issues with these kinds of locks are simply that the owner has forgotten the combination.

Tip: Store the combination for the lock as securely as you would any other important document. You don’t want to forget the combination AND lose the document the combination was written on. Because if you do, you’ll likely need to have the entire combination replaced.

Custom Residential Locks & Installation

One example of a custom lock project is installing locks to prevent young children from getting into a pool unattended. We can also install deadbolts on inner home doors to make a room the safe room in case of an intruder.

There are too many kinds of custom lock installation projects we can complete for you dependent on your needs and requirements.

Realtor Combination Locks

Alamo Key & Lock sells, installs, and removes realtor combination lockboxes. Many of these lockboxes are forgotten about on homes and the combination to them is lost. However, they are very effective at storing a key for contractors and for prospects to enter the property.

Patio & Sliding Door Locks

Primeline and Lockit are two common sliding door and patio locks that customers often ask for. The more important feature of a sliding door lock setup is how secure you want the lock to be, and how do you want the lock to work. For sliding doors, Alamo Key & Lock locksmiths can install a standard security bar, a high security bar, a twisting security knob, a keyed lock, a keyless lock, and more. Because there are so many customizations for sliding door locks, we prefer to first talk to homeowners to explain your options.

Fence & Gate Locks

Alamo Key & Lock works on all kinds of outdoor fence and gate locks, including keypads and combination locks. Unlike other types of locks, there aren’t many choices when it comes to combination locks since most combination locks can’t hold a gate against all kinds of weather and intrusion. The most common combination lock for gate and fence security that we use is the Kaba combination lock.

Peep Holes

Alamo Key & Lock locksmiths can install and repair peepholes on any residential door. It’s especially important that you hire a professional locksmith for peephole repair or installation jobs. If the locksmith messes up the drilling of the hole by even an 1/8 of an inch, the entire door might need to be replaced. Since many doors are expensive and time-consuming to replace, call upon experienced locksmiths 713-688-3887

Locking Mailboxes

Alamo Key & Lock repairs install and open locking mailboxes. When you have a locked mailbox that needs to be opened, we can only open it with proof of ownership and permission. In many mailboxes, no locksmith is allowed to open. For example, USPS mailboxes. When you need to change locks on such mailboxes, call us for advice on how to get documentation that shows the ownership.
