At the end of the day, sometimes drilling out the old lock and replacing it with a brand new one really is the best solution, particularly if the old lock is not very secure or you have lost your keys and are worried they have fallen into the wrong hands. However, no-one should be made to pay a hefty bill for an unnecessary new lock or damage made to their door because of an unskilled “I’ll have a go” locksmith. Instead, always do your research and find a local locksmith with good customer reviews and the right skills for the job.
