- jiggling the key to get them it to work, is a sign worn key or lock.

- Lubricating doors and locks with WD40 at least once a year.

- losing keys is something that happens to everyone.

When lubricating your locks make sure that you are using what is recommended for the lubricant. As an automotive locksmith we’ve seen issues where customers have used products like petroleum jelly in the locks, which causes more damage than good.
