Breaking your keys in the cylinder while operating your lock is a frustrating and stressful experience. Attempting to open the lock with a rusted key, a frozen or jammed lock, inserting the wrong key, or using excessive force to turn the key inside the lock are among a number of factors that may cause it to break off inside the lock.
Removing a broken key from the cylinder requires extensive expertise and specialized extraction tools. Attempting to remove the key with tweezers or paperclips might push the broken part further inside can damage the lock’s internal mechanics, requiring costly repair or total lock replacement.
