Locksmith needed

Anyone have a locksmith to recommend? A spring broke, causing the pin to drop, making the deadbolt useless. Luckily I have 2 deadbolts on that door, so I can secure my home, but this needs to be fixed. Thanks!

  • NatureNut SE PortageParker since1992

    Tom Surplus comes right away and has very low prices. 773-427-8224

  • If you are at all handy take off the broken lock and take it to a hardware store / Lowes / Home depot and ask for a replacement. If it is a standard lockset it will fit into the old hole. Can't get cheaper than that.
