Ever wondered how to properly look after your keys and locks? Here’s how.
Look Out for Extreme Temperatures
Very high or low temperatures can cause problems with locks. This is due to the fact that extreme temperatures cause metals to expand or contract. When it’s very hot, the lock, key, and door frame can expand, making the lock difficult to turn. One thing you can do to avoid this is to lubricate your locks on a regular basis. If your lock is properly fitted to the door frame, this will lessen the chances of any issues.
Clean the locks
Over time, dirt and debris builds up in the lock. This can make it a lot harder to open. Compressed air blown into the lock is one solution, but for a deeper clean, take off the cover and use a brush to remove any foreign matter.
Don’t Force It
Sometimes a lock won’t turn easily. If this is the case, don’t try to use force. You might bend the lock mechanism and your key. If this happens, the problem will get worse.
