My key has snapped in the lock. Does this mean I need a replacement lock?

AS Locksmiths Worcester Blog

If your key has snapped in the lock then it doesn’t necessarily mean you need to have the lock replaced. A skilled locksmith will be able to remove a broken key that has snapped in a lock. Please do not attempt to remove the snapped key yourself as you may find this forces it further into the lock or damages the internal components of the lock. If this happens a locksmith may no longer be able to successfully remove the broken key and you may be faced with no alternative than to replace the lock.
