Door Cylinder Change Service
Door cylinders are essential components of the locking mechanism that is installed in your doors whether at home, an office, or a business establishment. It often comes with the knob, screws, and a set of keys that can be used to lock and unlock the door.
But as with other locking systems, door cylinders are not immune to damage. It can get worn out over time or have its crews loosened among others and depending on the type of cylinder used (mortise cylinder, rim cylinder, tubular deadbolt cylinder), there are also different ways to fix it.
But how do you know that a door cylinder needs repair or replacement? A sure way to determine a problem is when you are unable to lock and unlock the door using your keys. If this happens, a door cylinder change service could be in order.
Turning door cylinder
One of the most common problems people have with door cylinders is when it starts turning as you try to lock or unlock the door. Upon installation, screws are used to keep the cylinder in place. But after some time, there is a possibility for the screws to loosen either because of poor installation or brusque handling of the doorknob.
Whatever the reason may be for a turning door cylinder, there is always an easy fix for it: calling our professional locksmith for a quick door cylinder change service. Of course, you can always attempt to work on it on your own if that’s what you prefer. But it is worth noting that while door cylinder problems are easy to identity, they are not as easy to fix.

Fixing a damaged door cylinder
While we do not always recommend DIY repairs or replacement for damaged door cylinders, we can’t really impose our opinions on customers. If you decide to do it on your own, you might find a ton of tutorial videos online to help you fix what’s broken. Just make sure that you have all the necessary tools for the job so you won’t encounter problems midway.
The whole process involves disassembling the entire lock and memorizing the correct placements of the screws. Keep in mind that there are varying positions for the knob, cylinder, and screws depending on the type you are using. It is then followed by inspecting the parts as well as your door to determine the problem, then putting the faceplate back in its place.
If we’re being honest, this is more complex than you might think. Fixing a door cylinder is not as simple as screwing tiny parts into your door and the door frame, which means it won’t be an easy job for someone who has not done any similar task in the past.
