Key or lock not working?

To protect the privacy and security of your mail, we do not keep copies of the keys to your compartment, but here's what to do if you can't insert your key into the lock or if your key won't open the box:

  1. Try your other key to see if it works. If it does, have a duplicate made so you’ll have a spare.
  2. If you still can't open your compartment, fill out the form that starts below.
  3. We will either fix the lock or change it.
  4. If we change the lock, we will issue a delivery notice card identifying where you can pick up your new keys.
