Safe Unlocking Service

You’re about to retrieve your jewelry or some important document, which is in a safe, but there’s just a problem. You’re in front of your security safe and the metallic dial is staring at you, and waiting to be opened. The thing is, you forgot the combination! You want to call the local open-a-safe service provider’s number, but you hesitate because maybe you can think hard and recall the numbers. Or, even better, you can try and break it open.

If you need your home or business security safe or vault opened, call Extra Locksmith in Fort Worth today. We will send a trained professional to unlock your safe with the proper equipment. No need to waste time trying to pry open the safe yourself. This could cause damage to whatever is inside the safe and you could end up hurting yourself.

Understanding how the lock functions work

First, you have a combination lock, a dial with numbers along the edges or the circumference. Apparently, the only way to open the safe is to get the number combination right. Destroying the dial to open the safe seems a tough business. A Fort Worth locksmith doesn’t recommend doing that.

Attached to the dial is a small cylinder, called the spindle. If you want to unlock a safe, you have to figure out how the spindle works. Turning the dial turns the spindle as well. You don’t see it turning because it’s inside the locking mechanism. Attached to the spindle is the drive cam, which turns when the spindle turns. Then a drive pin extends from the drive cam and turns the wheel as well. In easier terminology, you have connected parts that move as the other parts move.

The drive pin turns the wheels or tumblers. These wheels are located around the spindle, but they are attached to it. The combination lock is equipped with one wheel for every number in the combination. If you have a three-number combination lock, then your safe has three tumblers or wheels. Once you understand how the lock works, you’ll realize opening your safe without the right combination of numbers is virtually impossible.

Opening a safe without the number combination is not impossible, but it sure is very difficult and taxing, as any Fort Worth open safe service provider will say. Some locksmiths use special devices to listen to mechanical noises while turning the dial counterclockwise and clockwise. Some actually just use a stethoscope to attempt to listen to the noises or clicks. The logic of this method is simple.

Turning the dial allows you to pass through any of the numbers of the combination. When you’re doing it right, you should hear clicks at or near the designated numbers.

The thing is, this underhanded method is prone to a lot of mistakes. People who have no idea what they’re doing or what sound to catch will just spend a long time and be frustrated. In many cases, an unskilled person doing the job will hear internal noises. In addition, seasoned locksmiths use other techniques, like drawing graphs to determine possible combinations. It doesn’t end there.

You could come up with multiple combinations, which you have to try one by one. In many cases, none of them works. So you either have to repeat the entire irksome process or you have to tweak the combinations and use adjacent numbers. You would have to be trying a hundred different combinations before you could open that safe. If you’re unlucky, the safe won’t yield to any random mix of numbers.

If you called an affordable safe open locksmith, you’d have spared yourself from time and effort wasted. Dial our number so we may help you turn that dial and open your safe safely. We are your most trusted locksmith in Fort Worth when it comes to unlocking safes. We can handle digital dial safes, gun safes, combination safes, and many more. Give us a call today to get your safe or vault opened.

Key Extraction

When your key breaks in the car door lock or the ignition, this is a very different circumstance than a residential or commercial key extraction. Vehicle locks and ignitions have very delicate mechanisms that can get damaged if a key breaks inside. Our technicians are highly skilled and have the proper tools in order to extract a key from your vehicle. They use careful techniques in order to not damage the car lock or ignition. Depending on the nature of the key break, sometimes there may be unrepairable damage. Once a technician is on-site of the vehicle, he can assess the situation and determine what needs to be done. Of course, the goal of the technician is to remove the broken piece that has become stuck in the lock or ignition, but if the key has caused significant damage, you will always be well informed. 

Since car keys have become more sophisticated and modern over the years with transponders as well as other unique features, they can become expensive to replace after being broken. Extra Locksmith Dallas is proud to say that we have a team of well-trained and highly experienced locksmiths that not only provides affordable key extraction services, but we can also make a key replacement on the spot so you can get back on the road in no time.

There are different types of locks but the most common are the Mortice deadlock, Nightlatch (Yale Lock), and the Multi-Point Locking System.

Extra Locksmith Broken Lock Repair Services

The Mortice Deadlock is typical for wooden doors, while the Nightlatch is a type of lock that is latched on the inside of a door. It has a small button that can be utilized to hold open its latch. This lock is typically used for additional security but it’s not as secure compared to a mortice deadlock. The Multi-Point Locking System is usually found on composite doors, uPVC, or patio doors. It requires a cylinder lock with a minimum of 5 pins. All of these types of locks can be handled by our team of well-experienced and highly-trained locksmith technicians.
