The process of repairing the Safety lock involves many complex procedures, from the perspective of mechanical, electrical and electronic parts. The lock has essentially four main parts. They are the main dial and the three internal wheels. The number of wheels in the lock depends on the manufacturer specifications. Since the lock is keyless, the procedure adopted for repairing the lock has to be inclusive of the corrective and preventive measures to eliminate the possibilities of errors creeping into the system in future.

The connectivity between various parts of the multiple wheels in the locks is through the stud, pin, arm, pin and slot. The rotation of the main dial sets the locking mechanism within each slot and pin. Once the lock is closed with this code, the same code needs to be repeated in a specific sequence for releasing the pin and arm from the slot. This is how the normal combination lock functions.
- When the lock experiences a mechanical or physical damage due to internal or external impact, the locking mechanism of the slot, pin and the arm gets jammed. This could lead to complex conditions where you are unable to open the lock. The only alternate method could be to cut open the safe, which may not be a feasible solution.
- In such cases the Locksmith Sacramento CA uses the specialized set of mechanical, electronic and electromagnetic tools for releasing the internal locking of the system. This is a gradual process which could consume time, depending on the complexity of the problem and the locking mechanism.
- The Locksmith Sacramento CA is capable of handling various types of mechanical, electro mechanical, electromagnetic, smart locks with mechanical parts etc. He has learnt the practical methods of dealing with all types of locks including the hybrid type.
- He uses a combination of his analytical skills and the advanced technology of the probing tools for determining the nature and intensity of the problem in the lock. This is the first stage of problem solving.
- In the next stage he will use his logical skills to derive the various permutations and combinations of problem solving methods. Then he uses his experience to select the most optimum method applicable for the specific situation. He gathers all the required tools, equipment, parts and components which need to be replaced in the combination lock.
- The procedure of replacing the components may not be easy as the opening space could be very narrow and the replaceable component may be unseen. In such cases he uses a probing device which works almost like a probing tool used by the doctors to insert into human body. This is a highly sensitive tool which could be used to extract and replace microscopic parts like the pins and screws.
- At the end of a prolonged process of parts repair and replacements, the Locksmith Sacramento CA will be able to set the mechanical part of the lock into working condition. He may use the same methods for correcting the electronic part and restoring the lock back into complete functional condition.
