    • Stuck, hard to turn keys - if your key gets stuck each time you try use the lock and it becomes uneasy to use the lock - it doesn't necessarily mean that you need to call a locksmith. Grease and clean the lock first! If it doesn't help - only then you should call a locksmith.
    • Frozen lock - it tends to happen during the winter. If it happened to you - a hair dryer is all you need in order to defrost your lock and start using it again.
    • You can't shut the door latch? If so, then try to tighten and to loosen the screws on the door hinges. Lubrication of the door latch can also be helpful. If that doesn't help, make an attempt to lift the door a bit and make sure that the hinge screws are tight enough.

    Next time to come across any of these issues - first try to fix the problem yourself and only then see if you need a locksmith service or not.
