This blog will go over the most common locks used on storage units, different scenarios, and what can be done.
When you are not able to get into your storage unit whether it be because you have lost the key to your lock or because you just aren’t able to get your lock open there is a couple things you can do. If you have your key but you’re not able to get your lock open you can try a couple different things. The first thing you should try is spray a little WD-40 into the lock. Sometimes with the weather and wear and tear of the padlocks that go on storage units they can get stuck. Spraying WD-40 into the lock with allow the lock to loosen up and will loosen up any dirt or debris that may have gotten into the lock. If this does not work or you have actually lost your key you can call a locksmith. Depending on the type of lock that you have on your storage unit will determine what procedure a locksmith technician will do. Your standard master lock padlocks or similar locks can nine times out of ten be picked by an experienced locksmith technician. The technician will use his lock pick set to pick your lock in order to get it open for you. This is the easiest and usually the most common scenario when we receive calls for storage lockouts. If the tech is not able to pick the lock or if you have a round cylinder lock more than likely they will need to drill out the lock or cut it off with bolt cutters or a grinder. If this is the case you will then need to replace the lock if you are still planning on keeping the unit. Make sure to ask your locksmith if they carry replacement padlocks or if you need to provide your own.
