Lock Shop Limitations

What PW does not provide...

  • PW lock service does not include locks on office furniture, as this is not considered real property. However the lock shop does have an authorized list of vendors available for such repair.
  • Individuals may be held liable for the cost of restoring integrity to a lock system should keys be lost. For example, if a lost key accesses four doors, the locks on all four doors would require replacement and the individual could be held liable for the entire replacement cost.
