Top Lock Repair related questions

It’s normal to wonder or worry about your locksmith’s credibility. Airtasker connects you to services from trained, experienced, and trustworthy mobile locksmiths near you. Our platform has a transparent ratings system, with reviews written by real customers. Airtasker Pay also ensures that your money stays secure until your Tasker has completed the task. You can release payment only after the job has been completed.

A good lock responds well to its key. If you have trouble turning the key or if your key gets stuck frequently, then most likely you already need to call a lock repair service near you. Also, older locks tend to feel frozen or jammed frequently. Instead of forcing a key into a frozen lock, call and consult a mobile locksmith before your door lock or window lock become permanently damaged.

Lock repairs entail fixing or replacing internal mechanisms within the lock. If you’re looking to replace a lock altogether, your Tasker can remove your old lock and reinstall a new one altogether. You may need a lock repair service if your lock has frozen parts. However, if you’ve experienced a break-in or a robbery, then most likely you will need a lock replacement. Burglars often damage your door or vault locks beyond repair.

This all depends on how many locks need to be repaired or how severe the damage is. Typically, mobile locksmiths are trained to assess and repair damage within half an hour or a little longer. However, if your lock needs to be replaced, then lock replacement can take up to a few hours. Consult with your Tasker and be sure to give them as many details as possible, so that they can complete their task as quickly and efficiently as they can.

Airtasker makes it easy for you to get in touch with a professional near you. If you’re locked out of your home or your car, stay calm. Carefully read reviews posted by other customers, post your task on Airtasker and get offers within a few minutes. You can find a mobile locksmith near you so that they can get to you as soon as possible.

Yes, most definitely! Remember that this depends on how much damage your old lock has suffered in the past few years. Weathering, erosion, and mishandling are all factors that contribute to lock damage. In some cases, it would be better to call for a lock replacement service or lock installation service so that you can look forward to better security for your property.

What do lock repair services include?

A damaged or broken lock can make your home or property easy to enter. To keep your family and loved ones safe, have a professional mobile locksmith repair or replace old locks immediately. Here is the range of services that your Tasker may be able to offer:

Door lock repair

If your front door lock is broken, then your home may be feeling unsafe. You may need to repair or replace your door lock if your lock is rusty or weathered or if your key is unable to open it. You can even find a Tasker who may be able to fix or reconfigure an electronic door lock or smart lock.

Patio door lock repair

Keeping your patio door secure can prevent break-ins from the back of your home. A new, durable lock for your patio can also help maintain the overall structure of your patio door and prevent decay. While services vary from Tasker to Tasker, you will certainly be able to find one who can repair different kinds of patio door locks.

Double glazing door lock repair

Multi-point locking systems can improve the security of your home but are also prone to issues like misalignment, jamming, and drooping handles. Leave it to a professional mobile locksmith to help address possible security risks. There are specialized tools that you need to fix a UPVC lock, and a locksmith typically has complete equipment to get the job done.  

Car door lock repair

The best part about hiring a mobile locksmith is they can meet you where you’re at, whether you’re at a stranded parking lot or in the middle of a highway. Simply call for a door lock repair service near you, and a mobile locksmith can arrive wherever you are. Depending on the model of your car and the skills offered by your Tasker, they may be able to remove and replace the actuator within a few minutes.

Lock replacement

Some locks are just beyond repair and will need to be replaced altogether. Your mobile locksmith can remove damaged locks and replace them with a brand new one. Be sure to research the new type of lock that you’d like for your door, window, or vault. Find out which one is best compatible with your home or property.

Locksmith needed to fix 2 locks in courtyard


Newtown NSW 2042, Australia

6th Nov 2023

Need a locksmith to help with the following 2 locks: 1. The lock in the first 2 photos works and turns perfectly fine when it’s not closed - it is just the alignment between the door and the frame that is the issue, as I’ve circled in Red on the first 2 photos. It seems that since the house moves a few millimeters over the months the latch starts hitting the strike plate (sorry if they are the wrong names, I’ve circled the things that are problematic in the photo), and for the last 6 months I’ve had to not open the back door while the sun is on it in the afternoon as the metal expands and it won’t lock. But now even at night it’s not working. Therefore the task is fix this so that the hole accommodates for this metal expansion and house shift for at least for a few years? 2. Back gate door in the 3rd and 4th photos locks from the inside but only with some effort, but it no longer works from the outside. Unsure if this needs to be fully be replaced or if it just needs to be taken apart and cleaned/greased up… If possible can you provide the time you could be available today, tomorrow or Wednesday in the message with your quote.

Great guy, worked around both of our busy afternoons with no issue, and completed the job perfectly and really quickly. Highly recommend.

Flatscreen mesh repair/replacement


Bonbeach VIC, Australia

26th Oct 2023

Hi there, both my front door (security door) and back door (sliding) require the mesh replacing. The back sliding door was newly installed last summer, however very quickly the mesh was pushed out by toddlers opening and closing the door. I used the tool to reattach it a couple of times, but find it difficult. The mesh for the sliding door may or may not need replacing. The mesh on the front door is torn and definitely needs replacing. I’m located in Bonbeach. Are you interested in quoting for this? Thanks. - Due date: Before Monday, 30 October 2023

Professional, knowledgeable, kind and did a great job fixing the screens in my doors!
