    Default Don't Call the Locksmith Just Yet!

    G'day all.


    PUT THE PHONE DOWN!!! Don't call the locksmith just yet! Dodgy door locks can be a real pain in the %&&*#, especially when you have trouble inserting and removing the key. Watch this video and l will save you at least $100.00 on Locksmiths fees as you'll be able to do it yourself.


    Here's the link.

    Too much graphite and you will leave great fingerprints that may be difficult to remove.

    A piece of emery to remove burrs off the key can also be useful, and just check the key is not bent.
