Glove Box Repairs and Replacement
When there is a problem with your glove box, it ultimately comes to down to two concerns. Your glove box either won’t open, or it won’t close. These two issues generally come with different fixes. Our qualified locksmiths are able to quickly assess the problem and will be able to assist you in providing affordable options in order to repair or replace your locks.
Locked Glove Box Solutions
If your glove box won’t open, it could be that the latch is no longer communicating with the cylinder. In this case, we need to get it open before we are able to further fix the problem. This requires a special set of tools that our qualified locksmiths are able to manipulate in order to assess the problem. We are then able to see if the glove compartment lock is repairable or needs to be replaced.
Glove Box Latch Repair
When a glove box doesn’t close, it is usually because your catch might be slipping. This means that as your glove box is pushed closed, it moves the catch out of the way of the lock, and they are not able to connect. For most issues, we will replace the lock with a new one, unless a replacement is needed. Our locksmiths will be happy to assess your lock.
Car Trunk Lock Repairs and Replacement
Cars and their components have changed drastically over time. What works for one vehicle will not necessarily work for another. There is no easy solution that works for every make and model of car.
In most cases, your car trunk lock can be opened with the same key that is used to open the other doors on the vehicle. Even with smart keys that use a chip programmed inside, a standard key system can still be used to access the trunk.
We suggest getting the help of a professional locksmith at Old Capitol Lock Shop when your automotive locks are not working properly. We have the experience and training to handle all auto lock problems.
