Often a commerial locksmith, like Master Locksmith Company, will get a call to come out and repair a broken lock or exit device. It happens. Lets face it, commercial doors and locking devices take a whole lot of abuse and they do break! Even the best brands like this Von Duprin emergency exit device and exterior trim that is on this heavy steel door at a vet tech training school. The students take the dogs out this back door every day to go outside and they hit this door at a dead run! They come back inside with no less enthusiasm! Here we show the outside trim lever. It had stopped retracting the latch and the students were propping the door open so they could come back in. Here is where the experience and integrity of a commercial locksmith comes into focus. There are some cases where a repair is possible and quite alright, and there are other cases where it is not okay. Often the lock must be taken apart in order to ascertain the cause of the malfunction and the feasibility of repair. In this case Master Locksmith Mike Wilson took the lever apart and found at the heart of the problem a broken pin. This pin engages a cam inside the case and this cam pushes against the retraction mechanism. It was quite proper to remove the broken pin and replace it thereby putting the device back into service and not having to replace it. As can be seen in the photos, there is a lot going on inside the lever case. Please dont take these apart yourself.  Experience in cases like this is priceless!  This particular part of the entire system can cost upwards of $1200 in some cases. On this particular job, we did have to replace the inside device as will be seen in another post, but the lever was able to be repaired thereby producing a savings of over a thousand dollars. So, when you have commercial locks and exit devices that you need to be serviced, repaired, or installed, trust Master Locksmith Company to get the job done correctly and honestly! Call now and schedule an appointment!
