Is a bent key a serious issue?
Yes, it is and you should take measures to deal with it right away. When a key is bent, you will have difficulties with unlocking the door. In fact, the key blade may even damage the delicate mechanism of the lock cylinder. It is also possible for the key to snap inside the lock. For all these reasons, you should get a bent key replaced as soon as you notice the problem.
Is my lock at risk of snapping?
This involves the application of force on the lock typically with a hammer or another heavy object so that it gets snapped in two. All locking devices whose cylinders extend out of the door are at risk of snapping. There are also cylinders which have special protection from this kind of forceful damage.

Usually, there is a screw on the side of the device which has to be operated with a screw driver. Our specialists in Ickenham recommend that you take into consideration the safety and convenience of door users plus any special needs which they have as well as any security requirements when setting the speed.
