Changing office cabinet push lock for a customer. The key had broken inside the push lock, but unfortunately our customer did not have a spare key. So he opted to replace the lock instead. After he showed us the other half, we realized that this was a duplicate key, and not the original. He later revealed that it had already been bent prior to using it.
Having encountered similar predicaments from our other customers, we explained that the bent key shouldn’t be used anymore, as there was a high possibility of it breaking off inside the lock. Duplicate keys are also much softer, due to the material used.
What other locks can you change?
Changing the office cabinet push lock isn’t required under certain circumstances! We can also remove the broken key, if a spare key is still available.
