Today I performed a job in Symmes Township, OH 45249 area for a customer that locked himself out of his condominium. For any lockout service we have a flat rate and it doesn’t matter if its a weekend or a holiday. As always, I came out quickly to his location and saw that the cylinder lock is completely out of the lock and there is no way for me to pick the lock like I do most of the time. I needed to drill the lock in the middle of the left side of the mechanism with a 1/8″ drill bit and the goal was to break the screw that holds the mortise lock from spinning. After I drilled it successfully, I was turning the lock all the way to the left hand side till its out of the door and took a screwdriver to unlock it.
With my experience after over 5 years being a locksmith, I offered my client to change the old mechanism lock to a new one, since it was not in a very good condition. He wanted to fix that for now, so I started to take all of the parts off the door and bring it to my truck. Inside the mechanism I saw a lot of dirt and it was very hard to turn. I’ve used a W40 (oil) to make it smoother and to see if I solved the problem. I also used dust and rust spray to keep it working for a long time. Before I installed the mechanism and the lock on the door, I was testing the lock a few times to make sure it works properly. I was installing all of the parts back on a door and then checked that its locking and unlocking the way it suppose to work. There was another issue that came up when i tried to lock the door. The bolt didn’t close all the way and i needed to fix the metal plate on the frame and make the hall bigger. The job was completed in one hour and 45 minutes and at the end I gave him 2 extra keys for the lock.
The customer was extremely satisfied and told me that he’s appreciate me for coming after hours and also for not charging him extra fees for night labor. I gave him my business card and told him that all of our locksmith services in Cincinnati are guaranteed and he can call us at any time in the future for any emergency or lock repair. Couple days later I found out on the locksmith review page a positive feedback from this customer about the work I did for him.
