If you find yourself in a situation where your front door lock no longer turns with your key, there are a number of reasons this could be happening.
Firstly, it could just be that the lock is gunked up with dust and grime. An outdoor lock is prime for collecting all sorts of tiny things floating around outdoors.
Another reason could be the key itself. If there is any damage, even what looks like minor, it could be causing the key and pins to not align correctly.
Third, there could be interior damage in the lock which is causing the failure.
Whatever the reason, it’s important to fix the issue to assure that the security of your home isn’t compromised, and to minimize the damage before it gets any worse.
