I lost the keys to my mailbox
I lost the keys to my mailbox! What do I do now is the first thing that you think? Loosing these little keys can be frustrating. We get several calls a week from customers that have misplaced the keys for their mailbox. In this circumstance there are a couple of things to do. The first thing you can do is check with your homeowners association. Sometimes you will get lucky and the association will keep copies of mailbox keys on hand. Nine times out of ten they are going to tell you they don’t keep a copy. In this case they will advise you to call a locksmith Tampa.
Depending on the type of lock that is installed in your mailbox the locksmith Tampa technician might be able to simply rekey the lock. If they are not able to rekey, most likely and more often than not the locksmith technician will have to replace the mailbox lock. Our locksmith technicians come equipped with mailbox locks on their trucks and are ready to pop out the old lock and replace with a new one in a matter of minutes.
I do have some customers that have called after trying to replace the lock in their mailbox themselves. It can seem simple enough to do on your own. You can buy a replacement lock usually from home depot. But without knowing the exact type of lock, size and shape it can make what seemed like a simple job very difficult. So if you have discovered that you lost the key to your mailbox, you have looked everywhere and you just can’t find it, and you don’t want the hassle of trying to figure out how to replace the lock yourself. Give A Lenny Locksmith Tampa a call anytime, 24 hours a day 7 days a week. We are happy to help you.
