Over time, all locks start to act up due to use, but not so much as mailbox and file cabinet locks. These locks are tiny compared to deadbolts, and because of their small size they tend to wear out more quickly than regular locks. These locks are not available in most retail stores and are regulated by USPS laws, and should not be tampered with by anyone other than the owner or a licensed locksmith. We carry a large selection of mailbox and file cabinet locks to suit any need.
Knowing How To Chose The Right Mailbox and File Cabinet Lock Repair Service
Since tampering with a mailbox lock is a federal crime, you need to make sure you are hiring a licensed, bonded and insured locksmith company. Only companies that are reputable and licensed through the CCB are allowed to install, remove or replace a mailbox lock. If you need a file cabinet lock replaced or repaired, it is also wise to only hire a licensed company to ensure that your property is handled by a professional locksmith who is known to the CCB. This will guarantee that any issue you may have in the future can be repaired by the same locksmith company , especially if it is under warranty.
What You Should Do in Case You Need a Mailbox and File Cabinet Lock Repair
The first thing you should do is make sure that the lock does in fact need to be repaired. In most cases, a little WD-40 can help fix a stuck lock. If the lock is just spinning around and not locking or unlocking, it will need to be replaced. This is generally caused by a broken tail, a missing clip, or worn out wafers inside of the lock. If you still need service after using WD-40, call us! Our licensed, bonded and insured locksmiths are completely local and carry a wide selection of locks in their clearly marked company van. All of our services come with an extended warranty so you can be sure you’re in good hands.
