Most residential entry locks are of the cylindrical or tubular type of lock. If something is damaged inside one of these locks, it will take the services of a professional locksmith to determine what is exactly wrong because the two locks are so similar in design. They will have to be removed from the door and examined internally with special tools that local locksmiths know how to efficiently use in the event such a repair is needed. Attempting self-repair with a broken lock may cause further damage since household tools are not meant to fix locks.
