LBP locksmith Brighton was called to a property in the Hollingdean area of Brighton.
A section of the key had snapped off in a mortice sash lock. We opened the lock non-destructively and proceeded to investigate why this happened and if the lock was repairable.
Our findings were that the door was slightly warped and out of alignment, putting a strain on the inside workings of the lock and the key when used to lock or unlock the door.
